Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to offer prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, tastefully designed, and fun. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal customers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a period when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way achievable. If you like a refined look, this shape is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Windham Review

Louise-Birch-Tortoise

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they appear almost invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this might be an ideal choice. The subtle pink tone offers them a little something extra.

Eugene-Narrow-Rose-Crystal

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a subtle way to freshen things up – ideal for achieving a more put-together appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more relaxed option. Warby Parker Windham Review

Percey-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday man or woman who does not like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a couple extra style points.

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a classic 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. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much larger than some, but not so big that they take over your face.

Welty-Whiskey-Tortoise

 

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels carefree. Accessories have the ability to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is classic. The Daisy is an clever take on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless glasses will only heighten your sophisticated and contemporary style.

Daisy-Jet-Black

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is 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. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour incorporates tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Windham Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The glasses are then gently put together and pushed through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re packaged up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens style variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who want completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They shift from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

However, if you want a high quality lens, you could choose from the following:

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

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for those with an especially high prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

They also offer different lens design alternatives, 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 reasonable prices. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to offer you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive design series on the site starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is viewed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Windham Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The least expensive series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price about $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

They have a 30-day, no-questions-asked policy for each of their glasses, in addition to a 1-year guarantee for all their lenses where they’ll replace the scratched lenses for free within the first 12 months.

The minimum shipping duration is very reasonable at 5 business days for non-prescription sunglasses. The maximum time is a bit of a wait for progressive prescription glasses and single-vision prescription sunglasses at 10-12 business days.
