For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, unbearable frames. These days, glasses are expected to match your persona without sacrificing their practicality or taking away your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker is aware that 1 frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are looking to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker 2017

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass business by being the first company to offer prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores aren’t dull and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, well decorated, and pleasant. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout customers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a time when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker 2017

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who wore the same 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 prefer a refined look, this shape is a excellent choice. Warby Parker 2017

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People desire them because they give the impression of being virtually invisible from afar and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this may be the perfect choice. The slight pink tint 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 hue is a subtle way to liven things up – ideal for achieving a more clean 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 come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more chill option. Warby Parker 2017

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current variation on a typical form. Made from top cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are bigger than some, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire 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 design is classic. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten 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’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite striking.

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade colour incorporates tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker 2017

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made 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 competitors, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with 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 put together and dispatched through a series 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 finishing. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as providing the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens design variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that want absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They shift from completely clear inside to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you can select from the following:

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

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an exceptionally high prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives these coatings with all lenses at zero extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye tension because of reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel 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 minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

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

 

Pricing

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

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest series on the website beginning at $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of frames is $145, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker 2017

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive collections are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price point around $120. Once more, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

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

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they donate a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by assisting people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
