Created out of a business school initiative in 2010, Warby Parker filled a gap in the eye wear market perfectly. If you are looking for up to the minute fashion glasses or sunglasses you really have the perfect one stop shop with Warby.
Living in New York, you have access to several trendy Warby boutiques that allow you to browse many option with friendly staff providing good tips on the style suited for your face. That said, their principal business model is an online business. The website allows you to upload your picture and see the various options virtually. A simple upload of your certified prescription and you are all set.
Both glasses and sunglasses range for $95 – $150 including lenses and delivery. Ordering online or in the store will have a small package arriving at your address of choice within 5 working days.
Added bonus, you receive a note in your package informing you that for every pair of glasses sold a pair is also sent to a person in need of glasses
I have personal being wearing glasses for the last ten years. The costs of glasses can be astronomical and given my personal ability to lose everything I have been looking for a stylish, yet cheaper version.
I have been using Warby parker for the last couple of seasons and they offer, quality, charity, fashion and efficiency; where can you go wrong.
