Nowadays, glasses are supposed to complement your identity without sacrificing their functionality or hijacking your pizzazz. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s clear that Warby Parker recognizes that 1 frame doesn’t in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you are looking to revamp your look, get a pair for a special event, or just to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Prescription Glasses

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to market prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge gamble, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not dull and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, well decorated, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most diehard buyers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses 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 until she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way achievable. If you want a refined look, this shape is a great choice. Prescription Glasses

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they seem to be more or less invisible from a distance and complement a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not want your frames burying your face, this may be the perfect pick. The slight pink tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a subtle way to liven things up – perfect for achieving a very put-together 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 glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a rather more relaxed option. Prescription Glasses

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a few 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 striking keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than some, 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 ability to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to complement outfits, not distract or detract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only add to your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour 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 hue makes it pretty impressive.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade color incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Prescription Glasses

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and pushed through a number of quality checks. When you order, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as having the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens design options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These standard lenses are for people who prefer absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They alter from completely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, 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

However, if you prefer a higher quality lens, you could pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those who have a strong prescription since they are up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 all those with an extremely strong prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker provides the following coatings with all lenses at zero additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain due to reflections and minimizes 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 polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light beam reflection.

They also provide different lens style choices, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive collection on the site beginning at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be considered as mid-range in the market. Prescription Glasses

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most affordable series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price around $120. Again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations as well. One of their key missions as a company is to actively work on reducing its impact on the Earth.

Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their influence on the environment by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They are working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is bought they donate a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by aiding people access glasses to be able to see.
