Warby Parker changed the prescription eyeglass industry by being the pioneering organization to market prescription eyeglasses online and deliver them directly to your front door. While many considered that a huge gamble, it succeeded. The company sold around 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses on the internet in its 1st year of operations.

When it later rolled out retail stores, Warby Parker also revolutionized the images of shopping for and wearing. Its shops aren’t dull and clinical. They are sleek, stylish, well designed, and enjoyable. They are also packed with fashion-forward hipsters, who appear to be its most devout shoppers. Warby Parker may make you fail to recall that there once was a span of time when people judged eyeglasses as “nerdy”.

  1. Louise in Birch Tortoise 

These retro-inspired cat-eye glasses might remind you of your old Aunt May – the one who wore the exact white cat-eyed glasses with polka-dotted shift dresses in the early ’70s until she turned 90 – but in the best, most chic way conceivable. If you desire a refined look, this design is a great option. Warby Parker X1

  1. Eugene Narrow in Rose Crystal

Clear eyeglasses have been around quite a long time. People like them because they seem more or less invisible from afar and complement a nice, minimalist style. The Eugene Narrow eyeglasses are round and superbly proportioned for tinier faces – if you don’t like your frames taking over your face, this may be the perfect pick. The subtle rose tone 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 – perfect for accomplishing a very smart appearance.

  1. Percey in Striped Sassafras

The Percey may look a lot like the Baker at first glance. They’re both round, medium-width glasses with keyhole bridges, and they both come in Striped Sassafras – but it is the small details that make all the difference: The Percey’s lenses are more circular and its end pieces are not quite as pointed. These differences make the Percey a somewhat more easygoing choice. Warby Parker X1

  1. Wilkie in Black Matte Eclipse

Known for flattering nearly any face shape, the Wilkie is a excellent choice for the everyday guy or girl who doesn’t want to fuss too much about fashion. The Black Matte Eclipse style of the glasses have a thin white border wrapped around the front. Nothing too crazy – just a few extra fashion points.

  1. Welty in Whiskey Tortoise

The Welty is a current spin on a quintessential shape. Made from top cellulose acetate (such as all of Warby Parker’s non-metal frames, the glasses have a curved browline and an notable keyhole bridge. Imagine Nancy Drew: the youth icon who made it cool to be a nerd. These eyeglasses are larger than others, but not so large that they take over your face.

  1. Watts in Sugar Maple Fade

The Watts looks and feels effortless. Accessories have the capacity to make or break a whole look: When it comes to our eyeglasses, we wish to complement clothing, not distract or detract from them. These polished glasses do precisely that.

  1. Daisy in Jet Black

This pair’s design is timeless. The Daisy is an clever take on the traditional cat-eye with sloping browline and thin eyewires. Don them with a little black dress or pair them with a business suit. These classic eyeglasses will only heighten your polished and contemporary style.

  1. Hardy in Striped Pacific

Blue is not a color you see 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 hue 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 tone combines tortoise on top with a cool, translucent blue on the base. The distinction makes them feel modern, but the neutral colours keep the glasses compatible with almost any ensemble. Warby Parker X1

Construction

The frames on Warby Parker glasses are built with cellulose acetate, sourced from a family-owned Italian business. Its glasses are assembled in China and built on the same production lines as most of its rivals, but since the business eliminates 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 compound. The eyeglasses are then carefully assembled and pushed through a number of quality checks. When you decide to purchase, a new pair is made just for you. Warby Parker custom-cuts and polishes the edges of the lenses, which have been infused with scratch-resistant and anti-reflective material. The glasses always come with impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses which block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. After the glasses are carefully examined and aligned, they are packed up and ready for delivery right at your front door.

Lens Options

As well as offering the standard single-vision lenses, progressive lenses, non-prescription eyeglasses and readers, Warby Parker produces 2 lens design choices. They are:

Clear – Well, not just clear – really clear. These regular lenses are for people that prefer completely uncolored vision inside and out.

Light-responsive – These lenses cleverly respond to UV rays. They transition from completely clear indoors to dark gray outdoors, even on cloudy days.

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

Lens-Options

However, if you want a higher quality lens, you may select from the following:

1.67 high-index lenses – These are great for those that have a high prescription since they’re up to 20% slimmer than polycarbonate lenses, however, they cost an additional $30.

1.74 high-index lenses – Being up to 10% thinner than 1.67 high-index lenses, these lenses are suggested for those with an extremely high prescription. They cost an extra $130.

Want a certain coating on your lenses? No problem.

Warby Parker offers these coatings with all lenses at no extra payment:

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

Anti-reflective – This coating eases eye tension caused by 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 reduces glare from light beam reflection.

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

Warby Parker Gives Back

Another aspect that makes Warby Parker alluring to people is that they are very similar to TOMS Shoes, on the principle of buy a pair and give away 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 problem. Warby Parker is working to address this problem by helping people access glasses to be able to see.
