For those of us who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, uncomfortable frames. Nowadays, eyeglasses are expected to complement your identity without sacrificing its practicality or hijacking your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is clear that Warby Parker recognizes that one frame doesn’t actually fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of inexpensively priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every look. Whether you’re wanting to revamp your persona, pick up a pair for a special occasion, or just to find a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has you covered. Warby Parker Tate

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to offer prescription glasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While a lot considered that a massive leap, it paid off. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet during its first year of operations.

When it later opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also transformed the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its shops are not stodgy and clinical. They’re sleek, stylish, tastefully designed, and pleasant. They’re also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devoted customers. Warby Parker can make you forget that there once was a span of time when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  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 eyeglasses with polka-dotted shift dresses during the early ’70s till she turned 90 – but in the best, most stylish way conceivable. If you want a refined look, this structure is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Tate

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear glasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they appear just about invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not like your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal fit. The modest rosey hue 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 color is a subtle way to freshen things up – excellent for achieving a very chic appearance.

Baker-Striped-Sassafras

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both 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 pieces aren’t quite as pointed. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more easygoing option. Warby Parker Tate

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

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

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary take on a quintessential form. Made from premium cellulose acetate (like all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an eye-catching keyhole bridge. Visualise Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much larger than some, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks simple. Accessories have the capacity 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 glasses do precisely that.

Watts-Sugar-Maple-Fade

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is timeless. The Daisy is an artful spin on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut 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 glasses, but looking at the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic colour 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 tone combines tortoise on top with a chic, translucent blue on the base. The contrast makes them feel contemporary, but the neutral colors keep the glasses compatible with practically any ensemble. Warby Parker Tate

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and crafted on the exact same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the company eliminates the middlemen, the costs are 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 compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and pushed through a series of quality inspections. When you order, a new set is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with anti-reflective and scratch-resistant material. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are individually checked and aligned, they are boxed up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

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

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

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark grey outside, even on overcast days.

Warby Parker provides polycarbonate lenses with any optical order. 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 desire a high 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 are around 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, although they are priced at an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being around 10% slimmer than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an especially strong prescription. They cost an additional $130.

Want a special coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain because of reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also provide different lens style options, from solid to flash mirrored to gradient transitions.

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively low prices. Because the company designs its glasses in-house, it’s equipped to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, with prescription lenses.” It is also great that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, such as thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most expensive design series on the website beginning at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the normal pair of frames is $145 at present, which can be classed as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Tate

When it comes to sunglasses, the most expensive series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The least expensive collection is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price about $120. Once more, this is deemed middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor that makes Warby Parker appealing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold 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 matter. Warby Parker is trying to address this matter by assisting people access eyeglasses to have the ability to see.
