Is Warby Parker any good?

How is the quality of their lenses and frames?

I have a few pairs from there and I didn’t find the lense quality to be great. The lenses on the two pairs that I bought at the same time deteriorated in less than a year (scratches, issues with UV coating). The frames were still in great condition but they gave me two new sets of lenses and frames.

I like their styles and their replacement policy so I’d likely buy from there again.

I have two pairs of glasses that I bought from the Yorkdale store.

2019 was a pair of regular glasses
2020 was a pair of sunglasses.

All prescription. They do come from the US and I had to wait 2-3 weeks.

Quality I’d say 6/10 for each pair.
Customer service I’d say 7/10 as well.

Quality could be better and feels “cheap”

If I had to do it all over again, I’d probably go Lens Crafter.

Jumping on this thread. I had prescription glasses (for distance, light prescription) filled a couple of years ago. These are occasional (driving) glasses. I now have a prescription for progressives. Is lens crafters that much better in lenses? I found my Warby Parker glasses tiring to wear so I only wear them if I need to see far.

I like the quality and styles of the frames, but the lenses are very poor quality. Like others have mentioned, I find the lenses scratch quite easily.
