Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering company to offer prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it succeeded. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They are sleek, attractive, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard shoppers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a span of time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might 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 chic way achievable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a great option. Warby Parker X Amanda De Cadenet

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People love them because they look just about invisible from afar and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller faces – if you don’t want your frames burying your face, this might be the perfect fit. The modest rose shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a modest way to freshen things up – perfect for achieving a very smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a slightly more carefree option. Warby Parker X Amanda De Cadenet

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  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 straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour makes use of tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom.

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a sequence of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

As well as offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker provides 2 lens design choices. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who prefer completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

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 price of the frames!
