They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your style, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Prescription Glasses Index

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to sell prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge gamble, it paid off. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in 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 polished, trendy, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout buyers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Prescription Glasses Index

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – 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 chic way achievable. If you enjoy a refined look, this design is a fantastic option. Prescription Glasses Index

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they seem nearly invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this might be an ideal pick. The faint rose color 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 color is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for achieving a very clean appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a slightly more carefree alternative. Prescription Glasses Index

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than some, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the potential to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer 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 style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic glasses will only heighten your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see 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 hue makes it quite striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Prescription Glasses Index

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 many of its competitors, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and sent through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for people who desire absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They change from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on gloomy days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses along 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 desire a higher quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription since they are around 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 are priced at an additional $130.

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

Warby Parker offers these 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 tension because of reflections and lessens glare.

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

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to sell all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive collection on the website starting at $195. The most affordable series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range on the market. Prescription Glasses Index

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The least expensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price around $120. Again, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.
