While most eyewear labels create designs based on fads and latest trends, American company Warby Parker was founded with rather distinct values. According to the brand’s official mission, it is “to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially conscious businesses.”
What that translates to us mere folk is that you can expect chic eyewear without breaking the bank. But at the same time, every cent you pay for your eyewear goes to a good cause. One of the few enterprises that started out with a socially-conscious goal in mind, Warby Parker has partnered with non-profit organisations for its “Buy A Pair, Give A Pair” initiative. How this model works is as such:
1) It empowers adult men and women with training opportunities to administer basic eye exams and sell glasses for very affordable prices
2) It also directly offers vision care and glasses to school-age children in their classrooms, where teachers are often the first to spot issues

If this isn’t impressive enough to rope you in, just know that Warby Parker’s eyewear options are pretty stylish as well. Expect seasonal collections for both eyeglasses and sunglasses that can flatter all face shapes — all starting at an affordable USD95. This includes prescription eyewear as well, for our Shoppers who require more than just a sleek pair of glasses.
For an easy breezy shopping experience, you can download the Warby Parker app that can measure your facial features to find frames to suit your face shape. But if you’re looking to get prescription glasses with the help of our Boxers, you can also use another app to do so. Download the Prescription Check app that allows an eye doctor to give your an assessment coupled with a glasses prescription. At USD40 for every prescription, the app is able to guide you through a series of tests to better gauge your eyesight.
Once that is sorted out, you’re on your way to scoring a pair of Warby Parker glasses in no time! A favourite of celebrities such as Karlie Kloss, Emmy Rossum and Ryan Gosling, you too can cinch this pair without having to splurge an exorbitant amount of money.
