For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for big, ill-fitting frames. Nowadays, glasses are expected to complement your identity without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker acknowledges that 1 frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re looking to change your style, get a pair for a special occasion, or just to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Prescription Glasses Retro

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to offer prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it paid off. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, trendy, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal clients. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Prescription Glasses Retro

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who sported the same white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you enjoy a refined look, this shape is a fitting choice. Prescription Glasses Retro

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they appear to be more or less invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you don’t like your frames burying your face, this might be an excellent fit. The slight rosey shade 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 shade is a subtle way to liven things up – great for completing a very smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more easygoing option. Prescription Glasses Retro

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic glasses will only add to your elegant and modern 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 have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade color makes use of tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Prescription Glasses Retro

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the company removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The glasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker has 2 lens design variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for men and women who like completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to UV rays. They adjust from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you want a high quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those with an especially high prescription. They are priced at an additional $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 protects your lenses from day-to-day wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension from reflections and minimizes glare.

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

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively reasonable rates. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer you all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest design series on the website being $195. The most inexpensive design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Prescription Glasses Retro

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price point about $120. Again, this is considered middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.
