For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, uncomfortable frames. Now, glasses are supposed to match your persona without sacrificing their practicality or taking away your pizzazz. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s clear that Warby Parker understands that one frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re seeking to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special event, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Eleanor

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the first organization to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a huge gamble, it was worth it. The company sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops aren’t dull and clinical. They’re polished, fashionable, well decorated, and fun. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when people judged glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way achievable. If you like a refined look, this design is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Eleanor

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People want them because they seem almost invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames taking over your face, this might be the perfect pick. The faint rose hue 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 subtle way to freshen things up – ideal for achieving a more sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny aspects that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Eleanor

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect option for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse version of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a classic form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger than some, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you find all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

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

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its competitors, but since the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and dispatched through a series of quality inspections. When you order, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective coatings. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as selling the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design variants. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These standard lenses are for people who desire absolutely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They change from completely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

But if you prefer a high quality lens, you could opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those who have a strong prescription since they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $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 extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker gives the following coatings with all lenses at zero extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension caused by reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker provides all of the above and more! Along with scratch resistance, they provide polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light beam reflection.

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively low rates. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is equipped to sell you all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly design series on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of eyeglasses is $145, which can be viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Eleanor

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The least expensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the average price point around $120. Once more, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

One of their fundamental principles as a business is to proactively work on reducing its effects on the environment. The company is a 100 percent carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They’re working hard to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker alluring to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is sold they donate a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from around the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by aiding people access glasses to have the ability to see.
