Now, eyeglasses are expected to complement your character without sacrificing its practicality or hijacking your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s crystal clear that Warby Parker understands that one frame doesn’t in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you are desiring to revamp your persona, get a pair for a special event, or simply to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Prescription Glasses Cycling

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to provide prescription glasses online and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a huge risk, it paid off. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its first year of operations.

When it eventually rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are polished, fashionable, well designed, and fun. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard purchasers. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a span of time when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Designs Available: Prescription Glasses Cycling

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way conceivable. If you prefer a refined look, this structure is a excellent choice. Prescription Glasses Cycling

Louise-Birch-Tortoise

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they seem to be virtually invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t want your frames covering your face, this might be the perfect choice. The slight rose color 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 tone is a moderate way to liven things up – great for achieving a very clean look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree alternative. Prescription Glasses Cycling

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect alternative for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we want to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Prescription Glasses Cycling

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a number of quality tests. When you order, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for people that desire absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They transition from completely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people that have a strong prescription as they are up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

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

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

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help 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 ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively affordable prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it is able to sell all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also handy that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly series on the site starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which is classed as middle range in the market. Prescription Glasses Cycling

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price around $120. Once again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations. One of their key principles as a company is to actively work on reducing its influence on the Earth. The organization is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Additionally, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by assisting people access glasses to be able to see.
