For those people who wear glasses, gone are the days of settling for large, ill-fitting frames. Now, glasses are expected to complement your personality without sacrificing their functionality or taking away your flair. When navigating through Warby Parker’s gallery, it’s evident that Warby Parker understands that 1 frame does not in fact fit all. Warby Parker is an online and brick-and-mortar retail provider of reasonably priced prescription glasses, sunglasses, and glass accessories. They have something for everyone, for every style. Whether you are seeking to change your look, get a pair for a special event, or simply to find a new tried-and-true standby, Warby Parker has got you covered. Warby Parker Video

Warby Parker changed the prescription eyewear business by being the first company to sell prescription eyeglasses on the internet and send them directly to your front door. While many considered that an enormous gamble, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of glasses on the internet 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 eyeglasses. Its shops aren’t stodgy and clinical. They are sleek, fashionable, tastefully designed, and fabulous. They are also filled with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most loyal clients. Warby Parker can make you fail to remember that there once was a time when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses may remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore 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 possible. If you prefer a refined look, this design is a fantastic option. Warby Parker Video

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around for a long time. People want them because they look almost invisible from far away and complement a nice, clean look. The Eugene Narrow glasses are round and superbly proportioned for smaller face shapes – if you do not like your frames taking over your face, this might be an ideal pick. The faint rose tone offers them a little something extra.

  1. Baker in Striped Sassafras

The Baker glasses have a traditional keyhole bridge with round lenses, and the Striped Sassafras colour is a modest way to liven things up – perfect for accomplishing a very sleek appearance.

  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 is the small elements that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as sharp. These distinctions make the Percey a rather more carefree choice. Warby Parker Video

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering almost any face shape, the Wilkie is a good option for the everyday man or woman who doesn’t want to worry too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse option of these glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – only a couple extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a contemporary take on a typical form. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an noticeable keyhole bridge. Think Nancy Drew: the youth figure who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses 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 look: When it comes to our eyewear, we wish to complement outfits, not detract or distract from them. These polished glasses do exactly that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is always fashionable. The Daisy is an clever spin on the quintessential cat-eye with thin eyewires and a sloping browline. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic glasses will only complement your polished and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

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

  1. Wilkie in Eastern Bluebird Fade

Yes, we’re repeating the Wilkie! We just love it that much. This Eastern Bluebird Fade hue makes use of tortoise on top with a trendy, translucent blue on the bottom. The contrast makes them look modern, but the neutral shades keep the eyeglasses compatible with nearly any ensemble. Warby Parker Video

Construction

Warby Parker’s frames are created with cellulose acetate, bought from a family-owned Italian company. Its glasses are made in China and crafted on the same production lines as many of its rivals, but because the business cuts out the middlemen, the costs are lower. After the raw materials are trimmed into face fronts with a high tech CNC machine, it is rolled with wood chips and polished by hand with a German wax. The glasses are then gently assembled and dispatched through a number of quality inspections. When you order, a new pair is assembled just for you. Warby Parker polishes and custom-cuts the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The eyeglasses come standard with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVB and UVA rays. After the eyeglasses are carefully examined and aligned, they’re wrapped up and ready for delivery right at your doorstep.

Lens Options

As well as providing the usual single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription glasses and readers, Warby Parker sells two lens design choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – crystal clear. These normal lenses are for men and women who desire absolutely uncoloured vision indoors and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly react to UV rays. They alter from completely clear inside to dark grey outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you prefer a higher quality lens, you may choose from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are perfect for those that have a strong prescription since they are up to 20% thinner than polycarbonate lenses, although 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 especially strong prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a specific coating on your lenses? No worries.

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

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

Anti-reflective – This coating alleviates eye tension caused by reflections and minimizes glare.

Superhydrophobic – These lenses fights off moisture to prevent smudging.

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

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

 

Pricing

Warby Parker offers eyeglasses, sunglasses, and accessories on the internet and in retail stores – at relatively affordable prices. Because the company designs its eyeglasses in-house, it is able to sell all eyeglasses “Beginning at $95, including prescription lenses.” It’s also handy that assorted lens coatings are included in the purchase price of each pair of eyeglasses. Certain lenses, such as slimmer lenses for very strong prescriptions, go for a higher price.

The Maker Edition is presently the priciest series on the website starting at $195. The most inexpensive collection is Spring 2018, which starts at $95. This means that the average pair of glasses is $145, which is considered as middle range in the market. Warby Parker Video

When it comes to sunglasses, the priciest series are the Epigraph and Resort starting at $145. The most affordable collection is Quintessentials at $95, making the usual price about $120. Once again, this is deemed middle range and ideal for those who have a reasonable number of disposable income.

Eco-friendly

Warby Parker is very proud of being eco-friendly and sustainable in its business. One of their fundamental missions as a business is to proactively work on reducing its effects on the environment. The company is a 100% carbon-neutral eyewear producer. Additionally, Warby Parker actively works to reduce their influence on the environment by mapping out the greenhouse gas emissions from their frame manufacturing, to shipping, office work, and warehousing. They’re making sure to offset their carbon accordingly.

 

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another feature which makes Warby Parker appealing to customers is that they are similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of purchase a pair and give away a pair of glasses. When a pair is sold they give away a pair to someone in need. They found a need that people from around the world do not have access to see clearly, which is a wide scale problem. Warby Parker is working to address this issue by aiding people access glasses to be able to see.
