Shopping for prescription glasses can be a bit stressful. There are so many options out there, and it’s hard to know when you’re getting a good deal. I’ve seen tons of amazing reviews about Warby Parker. I decided to give their home try on service a try and share my experience.
First, you’ll need a prescription from your Optomitrist unless you want non-prescription glasses. Then you log on, create an account and pick five frames you want to try. I love that they have sunglasses to choose from too.
It was hard for me to narrow down just five picks, but I managed. It took about five days for me to receive the frames. After I received them, I was able to try them for five days before returning. That gave me plenty of time to test them out and play around.
I was impressed with the quality of the frames. I took at least two days switching between each pair and wearing them for about an hour or so. I wanted to get a feel for the frames and pick a pair that would be most comfortable. The try on frames come with non prescription lenses in case you were wondering!
After you ship them back, you can log on and choose which frames you want. Shipping is free both ways! You then enter your prescription info and order your lenses. Single vision lenses cost about $95 and progressive are around $295. Warby Parker offers other options like blue light blocking and light-responsive lenses that you can add on. Warby Parker also accepts most vision insurance.
I picked Warby Parker for my glasses because of their awesome reviews as well as their buy a pair, give a pair mantra. They give back with every purchase. 15% of the worlds population can’t effectively learn or work due to not having glasses or access to them. I think it’s amazing what Warby Parker does to help lower that number.
