For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for bulky, awkward frames. These days, glasses are supposed to complement your character without sacrificing their practicality or taking away your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is crystal clear that Warby Parker acknowledges that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of inexpensively priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every look. Whether you are wanting to change your style, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or simply to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Glassdoor

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear industry by being the first organization to sell prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your home. While a lot considered that an enormous gamble, it was worth it. The business sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses online on its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out 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, tastefully designed, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout purchasers. Warby Parker can make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Glassdoor

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they seem nearly invisible from a distance and complement a nice, clean style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t want your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect pick. The faint pink shade 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 tone is a moderate way to freshen things up – excellent for achieving a more put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the little aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as pointy. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more relaxed choice. Warby Parker Glassdoor

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a fantastic option for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of these eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are bigger than some, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is ageless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the classic cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a clean-cut suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a color you find all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it quite striking.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Glassdoor

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are manufactured with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the company cuts out the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The glasses are then carefully assembled and sent through a series of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, 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 coatings. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually examined and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as selling the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers two lens design variants. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These normal lenses are for people who prefer completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear inside to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker includes polycarbonate lenses along with any optical order. They’re some of the most light and impact-resistant lenses; and they come with the purchase 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 perfect for people who have a strong prescription since they are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, but 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 extremely strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? Not a problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension due to reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

In terms of prescription sunglasses, Warby Parker offers all of the above and more! In addition to scratch resistance, they offer polarization and UV-protected lenses, which minimizes glare from light ray reflection.

They also offer different lens design choices, from gradient transitions to solid to flash mirrored.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on their website and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive rates. Because the organization designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer all glasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

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

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The least expensive series is Quintessentials at $95, making the average price point around $120. Once again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker prides themselves on being sustainable and eco-friendly in its operations. One of their fundamental principles as a company is to proactively work on decreasing its influence on the Earth. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear brand. Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their influence on the ecosystem by tracking the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They are working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which makes Warby Parker intriguing to people 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 sold they donate a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by helping people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
