Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the first company to offer prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They’re sleek, chic, tastefully designed, and fun. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal purchasers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Prescription Glasses 1.0

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you want a refined look, this shape is a fitting choice. Prescription Glasses 1.0

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they seem almost invisible from far away and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this may be an excellent fit. The modest rose tint gives 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 color is a subtle way to freshen things up – perfect for accomplishing a very sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem 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 little aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing choice. Prescription Glasses 1.0

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the glasses 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 modern variation on a typical form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than others, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished eyeglasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your elegant and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade tone combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Prescription Glasses 1.0

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the business removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and dispatched through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for men and women who like completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They change from completely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses along with any optical purchase. They’re some of the most lightweight 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 could opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription since they’re around 20% slimmer 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 suggested for those who have an especially high prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at zero extra payment:

Scratch resistance – This guards your lenses from everyday wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

They also provide different lens design alternatives, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively low price points. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is convenient that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive series on the site being $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be considered as middle range in the market. Prescription Glasses 1.0

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by aiding people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
