I hate glasses shopping, mostly because of they’re stupidly expensive.
Giving Warby Parker a try
I’m lucky enough to actually live nearby to a physical Warby Parker location and I did drop by about a year ago and hated everything. For some reason my DNA thought it would be funny to not give me a nose bridge and also take away the ability to wear contacts due to having dry eyes.
So finding a good pair of glasses that fit starts with the requirement that they must have nosepads. Warby had a ton of frames but I found less than a handful with nose pads, which is typically the norm but lately the gods of glasses have been picking it up. Or maybe it’s the round specs trend that’s urging designers to put out more designs with nose pads, whichever the case I took another look at Warby online and was able to find more than 5 styles – victory? 4 I actually liked, and 1 I threw in just to round it out in order to start the Home Try-On.
The packaging is just adorable. They came in a tray just like the doctor’s office would have, and I was pretty tickled by that.
I ended up only liking 1 of these and stupidly enough I forgot to take photos of it on my actual face, but have no fear – I requested another box that’s more sunglasses oriented (Summer is never over in California and sunglasses are a year-round thing) and I’ll be sure to take photos of those, on me this time.
Warby Parker frames are not cheap by any means, but if you wear glasses you’ll appreciate that their price includes the lens and a lot of add ons that at other places you need to pay separately for. That ends up to be a pretty good deal; the particular pair I liked was $145 with anti-reflect/scratch and UV in one swoop. The construction materials are supposedly solid as well, although only time will tell.
I’ll keep you guys posted on the next box. For those of you who doesn’t wear glasses I must’ve put you to sleep. They have super cute sunglasses as well!
Do you wear glasses or know someone who understands my pain?
