For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, unbearable frames. These days, glasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your pizzazz. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker is aware that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of inexpensively priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re desiring 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 got you covered. Warby Parker Burke Review

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to sell prescription glasses online and send them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous gamble, it was worth it. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not boring and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, well designed, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard customers. Warby Parker may make you forget that there once was a period when the public viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Burke Review

  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 till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way possible. If you want a refined look, this design is a great choice. Warby Parker Burke Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People desire them because they seem to be more or less invisible from a distance and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this may be an ideal fit. The slight pink color gives 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 tone is a moderate way to freshen things up – great for completing a more put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much 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’s the little details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing option. Warby Parker Burke Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a typical shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than others, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we want to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These polished eyeglasses do exactly that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only add to your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you find all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, 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. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral colours keep the eyeglasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Burke Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the business removes the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and sent through a number 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 infused 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 eyeglasses are carefully checked 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 options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These standard lenses are for people that like absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses with any optical purchase. They are 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 pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people that have a high prescription since they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for all those who have an especially high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

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

Warby Parker offers the following coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

Scratch resistance – This protects your lenses from daily wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain from reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

They also provide different lens style options, 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 low price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to sell you all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also handy that various lens coatings are included in the price of every pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive collection on the site beginning at $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be considered as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Burke Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest collections are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The most affordable series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price point about $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business. One of their key principles as a business is to proactively work on reducing its effects on the environment. The business is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of glasses. When a pair is sold they donate a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this matter by helping people access glasses to have the ability to see.
