I started wearing glasses regularly a few years ago when I found out the reason I was experiencing migraines and eye strain almost every single day for two months was because of astigmatism and nearsightedness. Knowing that glasses would now become a part of my daily life, I wanted to be sure I bought a pair that I felt cute in, but I am SO INDECISIVE. That is where Warby Parker comes in.
Their at-home try on program is FREE. You get to pick five frames you love, and they send them to you within a few days. You then have about a week to try them on, take pictures with them, consult your family and friends for their thoughts, and they provide a free shipping label for sending them back. You can do this more than once! You just can’t order a pair of glasses until your at-home try on has been return.
When it’s time to order, you can either upload your prescription (this is the quickest option!), or Warby Parker can call your eye doctor for you. You can also choose between various add-ons. For example, because I stare at a laptop screen most of the day, my glasses contain blue-light filtering to help lessen the strain on my eyes. I now own THREE pairs of glasses from Warby Parker, and I can honestly say that thanks to their excellent customer service and trendy frames, I will be a customer for life.
P.S. — If you have vision insurance and they help to cover the cost of glasses, Warby Parker can provide you with an insurance reimbursement form after you order!
