For those of us who wear eyeglasses, gone are the days of settling for large, unbearable frames. Now, eyeglasses are expected to match your persona without sacrificing their practicality or hijacking your own style. When browsing through Warby Parker’s gallery, it is evident that Warby Parker knows that one frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an internet and brick-and-mortar retail supplier of affordably priced prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and eyeglass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every preference. Whether you’re needing to change your persona, get a pair for a special occasion, or simply to get a brand-new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Vancouver

Warby Parker revolutionized the prescription eyewear industry by being the pioneering company to sell prescription glasses online and ship them directly to your front door. While many considered that an enormous gamble, it paid off. The company sold about 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses online during its first year of operations.

When it eventually opened up retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of wearing and shopping for prescription glasses. Its stores are not stodgy and clinical. They’re polished, stylish, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They’re also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who seem to be its most devout buyers. Warby Parker will make you fail to remember that there once was a chapter when the public viewed glasses as “nerdy”.

Take a Look at Warby Parker’s Top 10 Styles Available: Warby Parker Vancouver

  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 glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most fashionable way achievable. If you like a refined look, this design is a excellent choice. Warby Parker Vancouver

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around awhile. People desire them because they look more or less invisible from afar and go well with a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and flawlessly proportioned for tinier faces – if you do not prefer your frames burying your face, this may be an ideal fit. The modest pink shade 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 shade is a moderate way to freshen things up – great for completing a very clean look.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may seem a lot like the Baker at first glance. They are both round, medium-width eyeglasses with keyhole bridges, and they both even come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the tiny elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more curved and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a slightly more easygoing choice. Warby Parker Vancouver

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face, the Wilkie is a perfect alternative for the everyday guy or girl who does not want to worry too much about style. The Black Matte Eclipse design of the glasses have a thin white edge wrapped around the front. Nothing too loud – only a few extra style points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary variation on a quintessential shape. Made from premium cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the eyeglasses have a curved browline and an striking keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth idol who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are much bigger than others, but not so large that they cover your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts feels and looks effortless. Accessories have the ability to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyewear, we prefer to supplement outfits, 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 quintessential cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Sport them with a tiny black dress or pair them with a suit. These classic eyeglasses will only add to your sophisticated and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see all that often in eyeglasses, but considering the Hardy in Striped Pacific, you need to wonder why. It’s a straightforward, rectangular frame, but this oceanic hue makes it pretty impressive.

Hardy-Striped-Pacific

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re mentioning the Wilkie again! We just like it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade shade combines tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look contemporary, but the neutral tones keep the glasses compatible with more or less any ensemble. Warby Parker Vancouver

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker eyeglasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian company. Its eyeglasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as almost all of its rivals, but since the business removes the middlemen, the prices are much lower. After the raw materials are cut into face fronts with a high-tech CNC machine, it is tumbled with wood chips and hand-polished with a German wax compound. The glasses are then gently put together and dispatched through a sequence of quality checks. When you order, a new pair is manufactured 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 always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully inspected and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right to your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as offering the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker offers 2 lens design options. These are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – very clear. These regular lenses are for people who want completely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses intelligently counteract UV rays. They shift from absolutely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

But if you want a higher quality lens, you could pick from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those who have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although they cost an extra $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 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 certain coating on your lenses? No worries.

Warby Parker provides these coatings with all lenses at no additional payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating relieves eye strain caused by reflections and lessens glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to help prevent smudging.

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

They also offer different lens design 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 rates. Because the organization designs its glasses in-house, it’s able to offer all glasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It is also awesome that different lens coatings are included in the price of each pair of glasses. Some lenses, like thinner lenses for very strong prescriptions, are more expensive.

The Maker Edition is now the most costly design series on the website starting at $195. The most affordable design series is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the standard pair of frames is $145, which can be considered as middle range on the market. Warby Parker Vancouver

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

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its operations as well. One of their fundamental principles as a company is to proactively work on reducing its impact on the environment. The organization is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Also, Warby Parker proactively works to reduce their impact on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to transport, office work, and warehousing. They are working hard to offset their carbon so.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another factor which makes Warby Parker alluring to customers 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 bought they give away a pair to someone in need. They saw a need that people from all over the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale matter. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by helping people gain access to glasses to be able to see.
