Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyeglass business by being the first company to provide prescription glasses on the internet and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a massive gamble, it succeeded. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet 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 stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, chic, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted purchasers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a period when the public considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who sported 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 conceivable. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a perfect option. Warby Parker Okta

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they seem almost invisible from far away and go well with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for smaller faces – if you do not want your frames burying your face, this might be an excellent fit. The modest pink tint gives 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 hue is a moderate way to liven things up – excellent for completing a more put-together appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem much like the Baker at first sight. They’re both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small aspects that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end bits aren’t quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a rather more carefree choice. Warby Parker Okta

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse variant of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

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

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it quite impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  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 chic, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them look contemporary, but the neutral hues keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Okta

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are manufactured with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and hand-polished using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully put together and sent through a series of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the glasses are carefully checked and aligned, they are packaged up and ready for delivery right to your front door.

Lens Options

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

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These normal lenses are for people that prefer completely uncolored vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently react to UV rays. They transition from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on gloomy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you could select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a strong prescription since they’re around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, but they are priced at an extra $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 high prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension because of reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively affordable rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly collection on the site starting at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145, which can be viewed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Okta

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect which 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 donate a set to someone in need. They found 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 helping people gain access to eyeglasses to be able to see.
