For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for big, ill-fitting frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are supposed to match your personality without sacrificing its practicality or taking away your own style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s obvious that Warby Parker acknowledges that 1 frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you’re desiring to change your look, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Inside Warby Parker

Inside Warby Parker

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first organization to sell prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that an enormous gamble, it paid off. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They’re polished, trendy, well decorated, and pleasant. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Inside Warby Parker

  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 during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way achievable. If you desire a refined look, this structure is a perfect option. Inside Warby Parker

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People like them because they appear to be almost invisible from a distance and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this might be the perfect choice. The subtle rosey 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 shade is a subtle way to freshen things up – ideal for completing a more put-together look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much 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 small elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more relaxed alternative. Inside Warby Parker

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern spin on a typical shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger 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 potential to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to supplement 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 artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Inside Warby Parker

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs 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 polished by hand using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and sent through a series 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 the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant finishing. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as offering the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker produces two lens style options. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They adjust from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you desire a high quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people who have a high prescription since they are up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for those who have an extremely high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

Scratch resistance – This secures your lenses from daily wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain caused by reflections and lessens 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 minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low rates. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell all glasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also great that different lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive design series on the site starting at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145, which is considered as middle range on the market. Inside Warby Parker

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 usual price point around $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their effects on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, office work, and warehousing.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they give away a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by assisting people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
