Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the first organization to offer prescription eyeglasses on the internet and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that an enormous leap, it succeeded. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops are not boring and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, well decorated, and pleasant. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most loyal clients. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a span of time when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Designs Available: Warby Parker Colin Review

  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 eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way conceivable. If you prefer a refined look, this structure is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Colin Review

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they appear to be almost invisible from far away and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not want your frames covering your face, this might be the perfect fit. The faint rose shade gives 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 hue is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a more clean appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much 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 little details that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a rather more easygoing alternative. Warby Parker Colin Review

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t like to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse version of the eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a modern take on a typical shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger than others, but not so big that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels simple. Accessories have the potential to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an artful take on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a business suit. These timeless glasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It is 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 love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade incorporates tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Colin Review

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but since the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much 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 compound. The glasses are then carefully built and sent through a number of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to having the typical single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens style variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These regular lenses are for people who want completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They adjust from completely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on gloomy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you prefer a high quality lens, you may opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a high prescription since they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although 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 exceptionally strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively affordable prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is handy that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the priciest series on the site starting at $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145, which is viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Colin Review

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