I have seen countless ads for Warby Parker that intrigued me. What appealed to me was the at-home try-on. Trying on glasses after an eye appointment is never fun for me because I am overwhelmed with all the options and I don’t usually have a second opinion besides people who work there. I decided to check out Warby Parker glasses to see whether I enjoy the process more than the traditional route. I browsed Warby Parker’s selection and picked some styles that align with what I normally pick plus some I would have never tried.
My five pairs arrived in the mail several days later. My aim was to replace my broken glasses so I needed the glasses quickly. If you already have your prescription, you can upload it or send it to Warby Parker to verify it, or they can contact your optometrist for you, but after the try-on, I realized my prescription was expired. For some reason I had thought it was still active. This meant I had several options, I could go get my prescription updated at a Warby Parker location or at my eye doctor. There’s also an option to get a prescription check via the Warby Parker app for an additional fee. Because Warby Parker has no locations in my neighborhood, I chose to go to an appointment near me and send it to Warby Parker when I decided on my glasses.
Once I placed my order for the Chestnut Hughes frames, my glasses arrived in about a week. Pricing for the frames began at $95 and I added blue-light filtering for $30 and high-index lenses for $50. The total was $176.75, which was reimbursed from my HSA. It’s possible health insurance could reimburse shoppers depending on their benefits. (I had already exceeded my benefits for the year.)
Overall I found Warby Parker easy to work with. If they need additional information they will email you immediately and help you obtain what what you need, such as any measurements. I love my new frames and they appear to be sturdy. It’s easier to work with if you already have your prescription and are replacing glasses or adding another pair, but getting a prescription isn’t necessarily difficult.
One aspect of shopping Warby Parker that I like is that a pair is donated to someone in need for every purchase. I love when companies give back.
