Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the first organization to sell prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it paid off. The business sold roughly 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, chic, tastefully decorated, and enjoyable. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most faithful purchasers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a chapter when people viewed eyeglasses 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 from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this shape is a fitting option. Surfing With Prescription Glasses

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People like them because they seem to be virtually invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t want your frames burying your face, this might be the perfect fit. The faint rosey tone 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 color is a subtle way to liven things up – great for achieving a more smart look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more carefree option. Surfing With Prescription Glasses

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a good alternative for the everyday man or woman who does not like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are much bigger than some, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the power to make or break a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyewear, we like to complement clothing, 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. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These classic glasses will only complement your polished and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in glasses, 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’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Surfing With Prescription Glasses

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are made in China and built on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the business cuts out the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently assembled and sent through a series of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who desire absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They change from completely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you desire a high quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people who have a high 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 who have an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Concerning prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

They also offer different lens style alternatives, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

Warby Parker Gives Back

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