Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first organization to sell prescription glasses online and send them directly to your home. While many considered that a massive leap, it succeeded. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, well designed, and fabulous. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard customers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a time when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Glasses Available: Negative 1 Prescription Glasses

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way possible. If you like a refined look, this structure is a fantastic choice. Negative 1 Prescription Glasses

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they appear just about invisible from far away and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not want your frames covering your face, this may be an excellent choice. The faint rose shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a moderate way to freshen things up – perfect for accomplishing a very put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a slightly more carefree choice. Negative 1 Prescription Glasses

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than others, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to complement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic eyeglasses will only add to your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Negative 1 Prescription Glasses

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built 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 almost all of its competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and sent through a number of quality checks. When you order, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that like absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They adjust from completely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you can select from the following:

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

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they offer UV-protective lenses and polarization, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

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

Warby Parker Gives Back

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