Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to provide prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your home. While many considered that a huge risk, it paid off. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online on its first year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, trendy, tastefully decorated, and fabulous. They’re also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted clients. Warby Parker will make you forget that there once was a chapter when the public considered glasses as “nerdy”.

Have a Peek at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Eyeglasses Available: Warby Parker Jane

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People want them because they give the impression of being almost invisible from far away and go with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you don’t prefer your frames taking over your face, this might be an excellent choice. The subtle pink tint offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras shade is a modest way to freshen things up – great for achieving a more sleek appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem 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 details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Jane

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday man or woman who does not like to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these eyeglasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary spin on a typical shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Picture Nancy Drew: the childhood figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than some, but not so big that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful take on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only heighten your polished 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 hue makes it pretty impressive.

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 shade combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Jane

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it’s tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax. The eyeglasses are then gently assembled and dispatched through a number of quality tests. When you decide to purchase, a new set is built just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are individually checked and aligned, they’re boxed up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

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

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They change from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on overcast days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you desire a high quality lens, you could opt from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are ideal for people that have a high prescription as they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, 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 additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye strain caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker provides eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively affordable price points. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Starting at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also great that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as thinner lenses for very high prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the most expensive series on the website starting at $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be viewed as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Jane

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest design series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most affordable design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price point about $120. Once again, this is considered mid-range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature that makes Warby Parker alluring to clients is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they give away a set to some person in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue. Warby Parker is trying to address this problem by aiding people access eyeglasses to be able to see.
