For those people who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, uncomfortable frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to complement your character without sacrificing their practicality or taking away your style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is crystal clear that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame does not actually fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you are wanting to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Gemma

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription glasses online and ship them directly to your front door. While many considered that a massive risk, it paid off. The business sold about 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription eyeglasses. Its stores are not dull and clinical. They’re polished, attractive, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most diehard purchasers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a time when people considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Glasses Available: Warby Parker Gemma

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the same white cat-eyed eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most trendy way conceivable. If you enjoy a refined look, this structure is a perfect choice. Warby Parker Gemma

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People love them because they appear more or less invisible from afar and go with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t prefer your frames burying your face, this might be the perfect pick. The subtle rose color offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a moderate way to liven things up – great for achieving a very put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s 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 rather more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Gemma

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a excellent option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to worry too much about style. 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 variation on a quintessential shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the childhood icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than some, but not so big that they dominate your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is ageless. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These classic glasses will only add to your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite striking.

  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 trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the eyeglasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Gemma

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are made with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are manufactured in China and crafted on the same production lines as most of its competitors, but since the company removes the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and dispatched through a series of quality tests. When you order, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually inspected and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for men and women that want completely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They transition from completely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

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

Lens-Options

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

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for people who have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are recommended for all those who have an exceptionally strong prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at no extra cost:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain due to reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it is equipped to sell you all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also great that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Some lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the priciest design series on the website being $195. The most affordable collection is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the standard pair of glasses is $145, which can be viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Gemma

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly design series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most inexpensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the median price point around $120. Again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their harm on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker intriguing to clients is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a set to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world don’t have the opportunity to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
