For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, uncomfortable frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing its practicality or taking away your pizzazz. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker knows that 1 frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are seeking to revamp your style, get a pair for a special event, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Winter 2018

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the pioneering company to market prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive risk, it paid off. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are polished, stylish, well decorated, and fun. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most faithful shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a period when the public viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Warby Parker Winter 2018

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a fitting option. Warby Parker Winter 2018

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they give the impression of being more or less invisible from afar and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this might be an excellent pick. The faint pink color offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a modest way to liven things up – excellent for completing a very smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more chill option. Warby Parker Winter 2018

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current take on a quintessential shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than some, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you find all that often in eyeglasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty striking.

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 combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Winter 2018

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured 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 rivals, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and sent through a series of quality tests. 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 glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides two lens design choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for men and women that prefer completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

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

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

Warby-Parker-Lens-Options

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

They also offer different lens design options, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive design series on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Winter 2018

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most inexpensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price point around $120.
