For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, awkward frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing its practicality or taking away your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker recognizes that 1 frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you’re seeking to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Vancouver

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge leap, it succeeded. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, chic, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout purchasers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a time when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Warby Parker Vancouver

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this structure is a fitting option. Warby Parker Vancouver

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they seem to be just about invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not like your frames burying your face, this might be an ideal pick. The subtle pink color gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a subtle way to liven things up – excellent for completing a very put-together appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a slightly more relaxed alternative. Warby Parker Vancouver

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary take on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than others, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Vancouver

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the business removes the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then gently built and dispatched through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as offering the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens style options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for people who like absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They alter from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker includes polycarbonate lenses along with any optical sale. They are some of the most lightweight and impact-resistant lenses; and they come with the purchase price of the frames!

But if you want a higher quality lens, you may opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription as they’re around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an extremely high prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at zero additional cost:

Scratch resistance – This safeguards your lenses from day to day wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain from reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

They also provide different lens design choices, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the most costly series on the website being $195. The least expensive design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145, which is viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Vancouver

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price about $120. Once more, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker intriguing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is bought they donate a set to someone in need. They saw a need that people from around the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
