For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for chunky, ill-fitting frames. These days, eyeglasses are supposed to match your personality without sacrificing its functionality or hijacking your pizzazz. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is obvious that Warby Parker recognizes that 1 frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of economically priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every design. Whether you’re needing to revamp your persona, get a pair for a special event, or just to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Sf

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to provide prescription eyeglasses online and send them directly to your doorstep. While a lot considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its stores aren’t boring and clinical. They’re sleek, trendy, well decorated, and enjoyable. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when the public judged glasses as “nerdy”.

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

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

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

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they give the impression of being more or less invisible from afar and go well with a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and perfectly proportioned for tinier face shapes – if you do not prefer your frames covering your face, this may be the perfect choice. The slight rose hue offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker eyeglasses have a classic keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a moderate way to freshen things up – excellent for accomplishing a more smart look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look 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 curved and its end pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Sf

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a perfect choice for the everyday man or woman who does not like to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a typical form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an distinctive keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These glasses are larger 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 a whole appearance: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we prefer to supplement clothing, not detract or distract from them. These sleek eyeglasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is timeless. The Daisy is an clever spin on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Wear them with a little black dress or pair them with a suit. These timeless eyeglasses will only heighten your refined and modern style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue isn’t a colour you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you have to wonder why. It is a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue 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 incorporates tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them feel modern, but the neutral shades keep the glasses compatible with about any ensemble. Warby Parker Sf

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are made with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but because the business eliminates the middlemen, the costs are much lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts using a high-tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax. The eyeglasses are then carefully built and pushed through a number of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair 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 finishing. The eyeglasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually checked and aligned, they are packaged 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 – really clear. These standard lenses are for men and women that want absolutely uncoloured vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly counteract ultraviolet rays. They transition from completely clear indoors to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you desire a higher quality lens, you could pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a high prescription since they’re around 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 suggested for all those with an extremely strong prescription. They are priced at an extra $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye tension due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker sells eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories online and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to offer all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” Additionally, it is awesome that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, cost more.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive design series on the site being $195. The least expensive series is Spring 2018, which begins at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be considered as mid-range in the market. Warby Parker Sf

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Epigraph and Resort beginning at $145. The most inexpensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price around $120. Once more, this is considered middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is purchased they give away a set to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have the means to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by aiding people gain access to eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
