For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, awkward frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are supposed to complement your personality without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your own style. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s evident that Warby Parker is aware 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 look. Whether you’re looking to revamp your look, pick up a pair for a special event, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Seattle

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the pioneering organization to sell prescription glasses online and send them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge leap, it succeeded. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet on its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail shops, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, chic, well decorated, and fun. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal purchasers. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a period when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top Ten Styles Available: Warby Parker Seattle

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they seem just about invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this might be an excellent fit. The subtle rosey tint gives them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras hue is a moderate way to freshen things up – excellent for completing a very sleek look.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  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 come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the tiny elements that make all the distinctions: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces aren’t quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more relaxed option. Warby Parker Seattle

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a good choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t like to fuss too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the eyeglasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a couple extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks carefree. Accessories have the power to make or break an entire look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we like 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 traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Dress them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only add to your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a colour you find all that often in glasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a simple, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade tone makes use of tortoise on top with a fashionable, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with virtually any ensemble. Warby Parker Seattle

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high tech CNC machine, it’s rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The glasses are then gently put together and dispatched through a series of quality tests. When you order, a new set is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been treated with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant coatings. The glasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually examined and aligned, they are 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 glasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens design options. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for people who desire absolutely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to ultraviolet rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses with any optical sale. They are 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 ideal for people that have a high prescription as they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an additional $30.

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

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

Scratch resistance – This guards your lenses from daily wear and tear.

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain caused by 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 provide UV-protective lenses and polarization, which lessens glare from light beam reflection.

They also have different lens style choices, 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 inexpensive prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It’s also convenient that different lens coatings are included in the purchase price of every pair of glasses. Certain lenses, like slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is now the most expensive collection on the site being $195. The least expensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145 at present, which is viewed as mid-range on the market. Warby Parker Seattle

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Resort and Epigraph beginning at $145. The most inexpensive series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the usual price point about $120. Again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Also, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their impact on the ecosystem by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame production, to transport, warehousing, and office work. They are making sure to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing 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 donate a pair to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world don’t have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is trying to address this issue by helping people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
