Warby Parker is an online glasses company that lets you try on pairs for free at home before buying.
Warby Parker does for the eyeglasses world what the Try Chrome extension does for online clothing shoppers: lets them try for free before buying. The company sends shoppers five pairs of glasses from their extensive catalog, allowing people to try on the pairs at home for a period of five days before deciding which one to buy. This convenient method of shopping has caused Warby Parker to skyrocket to popularity, becoming one of the most popular brands for eyeglass wearers. For those that don’t want to sit around and wait for the glasses to show up, Warby Parker has also built brick-and-mortar stores in a few locations.
In addition to eyeglasses, Warby Parker also offers sunglasses. The site lets you browse both options, filtering by color, fit, shape, and material. There are several different types of glasses on the site, each with their own distinct name. This gives the brand an overarching feel, without sacrificing the individuality that glasses-wearers want in a new pair. For those who are indecisive or unsure about what look they want, there’s also a style quiz to guide them in the right direction. Warby Parker is a smart, young company that only seems poised for upward growth. If you’re in need of a new pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses, consider giving them a try.
