Warby Parker vs. SmartBuyGlasses
Warby Parker produce fashionable frames for men and women, starting at $95. As well as selling online, they have a number of different retail locations in the US and two in Toronto, Canada. Their “Home Try On” service means that you can choose five pairs of glasses to be shipped out to you free of charge; then simply try them on and keep the pair(s) you like.
SmartBuyGlasses offer fashionable frames for men, women and kids. They have an extensive range of designer brands in their portfolio, as well as their more affordable, own-label collection. They also ship for free internationally, no matter where you’re located in the world, and have a 100-day return policy.
The only country that Warby Parker ships to internationally is Canada. Their shipping times vary from 5 to 12 business days depending on the complexity of your order. Furthermore, the website doesn’t allow you to browse by price or filter their collections according to price, popularity, or the newest styles.
SmartBuyGlasses is a one-stop online shop for eyewear, as well as a hub of resources for glasses and contact lens wearers; however, their wealth of information and product choice can feel a little overwhelming at times.
Warby Parker provide stylish yet affordable glasses through their varied collections inspired by vintage fashions. Their website makes shopping for frames easy and straightforward, especially with their extensive resources and “Home Try On” service. However, it needs a bit of work in terms of being able to shop via price and filter different options. The company’s free shipping and returns policy for the US and Canada is a big bonus, but it’s a shame that they don’t ship elsewhere.
By offering top designer frames at higher price points in addition to stylish own-label frames at more affordable prices, there truly is something for every taste and budget at SmartBuyGlasses. The wide range of choice is phenomenal, and the fact that they provide a number of useful resources for glasses and contact lens wearers (including a virtual try-on feature) is an added bonus. The sheer amount of styles can feel overwhelming at times, but the site makes shopping with the company as easy and straightforward as possible by offering different filter and sorting options.
