For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for large, unbearable frames. Nowadays, glasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing its practicality or hijacking your style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is crystal clear that Warby Parker knows that 1 frame does not in reality fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re wanting to change your persona, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Expansion

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to offer prescription eyeglasses online and ship them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive leap, it succeeded. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its shops aren’t boring and clinical. They’re sleek, stylish, well decorated, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devoted buyers. Warby Parker may make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way possible. If you prefer a refined look, this shape is a fantastic choice. Warby Parker Expansion

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they give the impression of being nearly invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not like your frames covering your face, this might be an ideal fit. The slight 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 modest way to liven things up – ideal for accomplishing a more chic look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits aren’t quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a slightly more carefree option. Warby Parker Expansion

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic alternative for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the capacity to make or break an entire appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we desire to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These ageless glasses will only complement your refined 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’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Expansion

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the prices are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then gently put together and pushed through a number of quality tests. When you order, a new pair is built 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 always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

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

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to ultraviolet rays. They alter from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outside, even on gloomy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you can pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for those that have a strong prescription as they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at zero extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain due to reflections and reduces 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 polarization and UV-protected lenses, which reduces glare from light ray reflection.

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