For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, ill-fitting frames. Nowadays, glasses are expected to complement your identity without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your own style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is crystal clear that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are wanting to change your persona, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Prescription Glasses Trends

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your home. While many considered that an enormous risk, it was worth it. The company sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t boring and clinical. They’re sleek, fashionable, tastefully decorated, and enjoyable. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted clients. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a span of time when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye eyeglasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way achievable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a perfect choice. Prescription Glasses Trends

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they appear to be just about invisible from far away and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this might be an ideal fit. The modest pink shade offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras tone is a subtle way to liven things up – perfect for completing a more put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look 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 small aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a rather more easygoing choice. Prescription Glasses Trends

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These timeless glasses will only add to your elegant 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 have to wonder why. It’s a simple, 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 colour incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Prescription Glasses Trends

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. 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 cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully built and sent through a sequence of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens design options. These are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They adjust from absolutely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

But if you desire a high quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for people who have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an additional $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

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

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that different lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like slimmer lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly design series on the site being $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which is considered as mid-range in the market. Prescription Glasses Trends

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

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is sold they give away a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by aiding people gain access to glasses to have the ability to see.
