Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They offer something for everyone, for every design.

Warby Parker transformed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering company to market prescription eyeglasses on the internet and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a massive risk, it paid off. The business sold approximately 20,000 pairs of glasses online in its first 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 are sleek, attractive, well decorated, and enjoyable. They are also loaded with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout customers. Warby Parker will make you fail to recall that there once was a time when people considered eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt Kathy – the one who donned the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses from the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fabulous way achievable. If you want a refined look, this structure is a excellent option. Warby Parker Union Station

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they look nearly invisible from far away and go with a nice, minimalist look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and excellently proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not want your frames taking over your face, this might be an ideal choice. The modest rose hue offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a quintessential keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras color is a subtle way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a more put-together look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first sight. They are both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it’s the small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end bits are not quite as sharp. These differences make the Percey a rather more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Union Station

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday guy or girl who does not like to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too insane – just a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

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

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

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

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s style is classic. The Daisy is an artful take on the traditional cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Sport them with a little black dress or pair them with a clean-cut business suit. These ageless eyeglasses will only complement your elegant and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we are mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. The Eastern Bluebird Fade tone incorporates tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the bottom. The distinction makes them look modern, but the neutral colors keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Union Station

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian business. Its eyeglasses are assembled in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its competitors, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are more affordable. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and polished by hand using a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently put together and sent through a sequence of quality inspections. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is manufactured just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of your lenses, which have been treated with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses that block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are individually examined and aligned, they’re packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

In addition to selling the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker sells 2 lens design options. They are:

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

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently respond to ultraviolet rays. They alter from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

But if you desire a higher quality lens, you may pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those who have a strong prescription as they are around 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, however, they are priced at an extra $30.

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

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No problem.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye strain due to reflections and reduces glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses repel moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker markets eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively inexpensive rates. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it’s able to sell you all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that various lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is currently the most costly collection on the website being $195. The most inexpensive series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of eyeglasses is $145 at present, which is classed as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Union Station

When it comes to sunglasses, the most costly series are the Resort and Epigraph starting at $145. The least expensive design series is Quintessentials at $95, which makes the median price point around $120. Once again, this is considered middle range and ideal for people who have a reasonable amount of disposable income.

Another factor which makes Warby Parker intriguing to people is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and donate a pair of eyeglasses. When a pair is sold they donate a pair to some person in need. They found a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale issue.
