Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass industry by being the first company to market prescription eyeglasses on the internet and ship them directly to your doorstep. While many considered that a massive risk, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail shops, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, well designed, and pleasant. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal customers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a span of time when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Edgar Review

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way possible. If you like a refined look, this structure is a fitting choice. Warby Parker Edgar Review

Louise-Birch-Tortoise

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they appear to be more or less invisible from a distance and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames burying your face, this might be an ideal choice. The faint rosey color offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a moderate way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a very sleek look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as pointy. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more chill choice. Warby Parker Edgar Review

Percey-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra style points.

Wilkie-Black-Matte-Eclipse

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin 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 noticeable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than others, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only add to your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Edgar Review

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a number of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new set is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses 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 packaged up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as having the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens style choices. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to ultraviolet rays. They transition from completely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you want a high quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those who have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those who have an extremely high prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating mitigates eye strain caused by 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! In addition to scratch resistance, they produce UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light ray reflection.

They also have different lens style choices, 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 prices. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer all glasses “Starting at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the most costly collection on the website starting at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145 at present, which can be viewed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Edgar Review

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The least expensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price about $120. Again, this is deemed mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Shipping and Support Policy

Warby Parker gives free shipping and returns if you live in the US or Canada.

They have a 30-day, no-questions-asked policy for all their eyeglasses, in addition to a 1-year guarantee for all their lenses where they’ll replace the scratched lenses for free within the first twelve months.

The minimum shipping duration is very reasonable at 5 business days for non-prescription sunglasses. The maximum time is a short wait for single-vision prescription sunglasses and progressive prescription glasses at 10-12 business days.

Warby Parker has the best customer service on our opinion. Customer care representatives are friendly, attentive, and helpful as they answered all of our inquiries.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being sustainable and eco-friendly in its business. One of their main principles as a organization is to proactively work on minimizing its effects on the Earth. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that 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 purchased they donate a pair to some person in need. They saw a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people access glasses to be able to see.
