A new concept in eyewear
Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to create boutique-quality, classically crafted eyewear at a revolutionary price point.
A collaboration between four close friends, Warby Parker was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced and bland eyewear available today. Prescription eyewear simply should not cost $300+. The industry is controlled by a few large companies that have kept prices artificially high, reaping huge profits from consumers who have no other options. By circumventing traditional channels and engaging with customers directly through our website, Warby Parker is able to provide higher-quality, better-looking prescription eyewear at a fraction of the price.
We meticulously crafted our first collection of 27 limited run styles, plus one monocle, using the finest custom acetates and materials. The Warby Parker aesthetic is vintage-inspired with a contemporary twist. Every pair is custom fit with anti-reflective, polycarbonate prescription lenses.
Available exclusively through our website and showrooms, our glasses retail for $95.
Eyewear with a purpose
Almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses. This means that 15% of the global population cannot effectively learn or work - a problem that Warby Parker is determined to address. We've partnered with non-profits likeVisionSpring to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.
We believe that everyone has the right to see.
WE ARE A B CORPORATION
Doing good is in our DNA. Being a B Corporation means that we hold ourselves accountable for the commitments we make to our stakeholders. It's time to raise the bar - and we hope to see other companies join us.
We are carbon neutral
Warby Parker is one of the only carbon-neutral eyewear brands in the world. We actively work to reduce our environmental impact by mapping out our greenhouse gas emissions - from frame production to shipping to warehousing to office work - and purchasing carbon offsets accordingly.
Warby Parker & VisionSpring
VisionSpring trains low-income men and women to sell affordable glasses to their community.
Equally important, it provides community members the dignity to choose whether or not they want glasses and thereby avoids the culture of dependence that often accompanies foreign aid. Warby Parker is honored to partner with VisionSpring to grow our Buy a Pair, Give a Pair business model.
Warby Parker co-founder Neil Blumenthal previously served as VisionSpring’s director and helped pioneer VisionSpring’s model to train low-income women to sell affordable glasses in their communities. The model creates jobs for people in need, as well as the economic incentive to continuously provide glasses as their customers lose or break their glasses and change prescriptions.
