Were you ever one of those kids that always wanted glasses? 👓
Yeah, that was me. And like mom always said, “appreciate the eyes you have now!” because that little girl with great eyes got older and now I actually need them. Talk about some serious procrastination problems. 🤦♀️ As if the two and a half hour eye exam wasn’t enough of a hassle, I was (for once) dreading the entire shopping process – boy, I never thought those words would come out of my mouth!
Like many of you, with the Coronavirus epidemic going on all over the world, I’m taking my social distancing very seriously. So although I really needed glasses, I was not willing to leave my house to find a cute pair.
You mean to tell me that I can try on trendy and well-made glasses FOR FREE without leaving my house?
Yes, it’s really a thing and not only was it the easiest experience ever, but it’s completely FREE!
Needless to say, my friend didn’t need to do any more talking – I was already sold on trying out this free home try-on. And worst-case scenario, if I didn’t end up liking anything (which was extremely likely since I’m super picky) then rest assured, I still know it didn’t cost me hours of shopping and wasted gas money. 🙌
Upon visiting the Warby Parker site, you just click “Home Try-On” at the top. From there you can either browse through their selection of sunglasses or eyeglasses. Just know that not all of their frames are available for home try-on, but most are.
Overall, I was really impressed with the selection. I felt that all the options they offer are trendy and chic and not what you may find at your typical eyeglass store – not to mention, the Warby Parker ones are SO MUCH CHEAPER – starting at just $95 for prescription glasses!
Plus, they’re really well made with quality materials. I’m talking hand-polished cellulose acetate, impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses, anti-reflective and superhydrophobic coatings, 100% blockage of UVA and UVB rays, and all finished off with a scratch-resistant treatment.
I know, tons of big words, but I was super impressed and now even more excited to try their FREE home try-on!
Once you find a pair that you like, click “Try at home for free” and it will be added to your cart. Once you pick 5 pairs, you’re all set! You can even take their style quiz to see what their best recommendations would be for you. From left to right, I chose Ada (sunglasses), Fletcher, Vaughan, Chamberlain, and Haskell.
Ordering them was easy and like I already mentioned, totally free! You do have to enter your credit card info at checkout, but don’t worry, this is only to protect Warby Parker if you don’t actually return their sample glasses.
My home try-on box came in lightning speed! Literally in less than 24 hours the glasses arrived, I couldn’t even believe it, and it was lightyears faster than I could have ever traveled to multiple eyeglass stores. 🤯
In my box, there was a return label (already paid for so return shipping is also totally free!) and a packet which talked all about Warby Parker and what they have to offer. I’m so glad that they included it because I learned so many awesome things about their company.
For one, they donate a pair of glasses to someone in need every time a pair of glasses is purchased through them. In fact, to date, they’ve distributed over 5 million pairs! 😱
Not only that, but they include visuals, for newbies like myself, that show how glasses should fit on your face. And if you end up buying a pair from them, they’ll do FREE adjustments until they’re absolutely perfect. 🙌
They even talked about their warranties which I had no clue about. They have a one-year no scratch guarantee on their lenses so they’ll gladly replace any scratched lenses for free within 12 months of your purchase. Plus, they also have a 30-day return or exchange policy – all of which is super easy and they’ll pay for it all to make your life hassle-free.
To make shopping with Warby Parker even sweeter, you might even be entitled to a reimbursement, which means you could potentially get your prescription glasses at a lower cost or even for free depending on your coverage! 👏
Here are the two ways you might be able to save on your prescription glasses:
FSAs and HSAs: If you have a flexible spending or health spending account, you can use the card associated with your account to pay for prescription eyewear and accessories. Just enter your card details at checkout and “Bam!” – savings have washed over you.
Insurance: If you have vision insurance, you might be able to save on a new pair depending on your coverage and plan. Check for your carrier at warbyparker.com/insurance. They can also answer any questions via their chat, email, text, or you can even call them!
When all was said and done, I LOVED the entire process of working with Warby Parker!
I ended up really loving the Baker eyeglasses in black matte eclipse, so I ordered them right after dropping off my home try-on box at the post office. I also opted for the single-vision, classic, 1.67 high-index lenses, and my total came to $125 for the pair I love (as pictured above). 😍
Since I’m new to the world of prescription eyewear, I was totally clueless about what I needed, so I didn’t hesitate to chat with someone on their site. She quickly answered all my questions and helped walk me through which lenses I needed and anything else I wasn’t 100% sure about when placing my order.
After just a couple of minutes, I was all set with eyeglasses in my cart. When our chat ended, I was even given the chance to send the person who helped me a thank you by clicking if I thought she should get a small gift card, coffee, lunch or something else. I thought this was so unique – and so awesome for the person who just helped me! 🤗
Before placing my order the only thing left was to upload a picture of my face and a PDF of my doctor’s prescription and Warby Parker’s team took it from there! It was the easiest most painless process ever and I would have never imagined I would get such great glasses that I love so easily!
They even came sooner than originally quoted time which was pretty sweet, and we’ve been happily ever after ever since. 🤓
