Before you order, you’ll need a valid eyeglasses prescription (make sure it’s not for contacts!) and your pupillary distance (PD). Your PD is the distance in millimeters between your pupils, and helps us center your prescription correctly in your frames. If your doctor did not include your PD on your prescription, you can measure it using our online tool here. (Unfortunately, it’s not available on our mobile site just yet!) You can also stop by any of our retail stores where our trained associates can measure your pupillary distance (PD).
Once you have your PD, you can either hand-write it onto the copy of your prescription before scanning or submit the measurement to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We process orders quickly, but we’ll do our best to accommodate any changes to your order. The best way to change or cancel an order is to call us at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET.
We’re working on a way for you to check your order status online, but for now, our staff is on hand to assist. For time-sensitive questions, it is best to call 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET. You can also reach us via Twitter, @WarbyParkerHelp.
If you are interested in purchasing multiple pairs using different prescriptions (e.g. one for you and one for your spouse; one pair for distance and one for reading), please place a separate order for each prescription. Shipping is always free, so don’t worry about getting charged extra for the separate orders!
To purchase Warby Parker gift cards or sunglasses in multiples (quantities greater than ten), send an email to email@example.com. We’ll be happy to help.
Pick out five frames from a selection of our favorites to test out at home with our easy–and free!–Home Try-On program. You’ve got five days to take them for a spin and decide which style suits you best, then return the frames and order the pair (or pairs) you like. Shipping is free both ways. Learn more here. And if you’re having trouble deciding on a frame, reach out to us on social media using #WarbyHomeTryOn. Just make sure your accounts aren’t private, and we’ll chime in with feedback. You can also give us a call at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET. Please note that we are only able to ship Home Try-On orders within the 50 United States.
Finding the right pair of frames can be tricky, but our team is here to help. Think of our Customer Experience frame experts as your personal Warby Parker stylists. LiveChat us, Monday - Friday, 9a.m. - 5p.m., email us at PS@warbyparker.com, or post your pictures on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #WarbyHomeTryOn. (Just make sure your accounts aren’t private, and we’ll be with you in a flash.)
The Home Try-On program is absolutely free! During the checkout process, you will be asked to provide a valid credit or debit card before completing your order. We require your credit or debit card information for security purposes, but rest assured that the Home Try-On program is a totally free five-day trial. You may see a $1.00 authorization on your card account after placing the order, but this will disappear once we verify the card information, usually within 48 hours.
The only exception: if you do not return your Home Try-On, or if returned frames are damaged, we will need to charge the card on file the full price for each outstanding or damaged frame. The charge is $85.50 per acetate frame and $130.50 per titanium frame. This is our full retail price for frames without prescription lenses. In order to avoid this charge, your Home Try-On will need to be postmarked (on its way back to Warby Parker) by the fifth full day after delivery. (We’ll send you an email reminder so you don’t forget.) If your Home Try-On period ends on a weekend or holiday, just drop it in the mail on the next available day. If you need an extra day or two, no problem-just call us and we’ll work something out.
We send Home Try-On orders one at a time. If you are already trying on a few frames with an existing Home Try-On, we’ll ship your new Home Try-On box once we receive your current order.
Read more about our stores and showrooms here. Then, visit one of our retail locations and see which frames are right for you!
Warby Parker stores carry our complete line of eyeglasses and sunglasses. Not all of our showrooms carry the full Warby Parker arsenal, but they all feature a wide variety of styles. A few of our locations provide in-store eye exams, which you can book in advance. Find out more about our locations on our Retail page.
Once you’re ready to checkout, you’ll be asked to upload an image of your eyeglasses prescription to your order; you can either snap a picture or scan it in. If you’ve already placed an order, email the image of your prescription to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may also submit your doctor’s contact information during checkout and we’ll take care of getting your prescription details.
We’ll also need your pupillary distance (PD). Your PD is the distance in millimeters between your pupils, and it helps us center your prescription correctly in your frames. If your doctor did not include this measurement with your prescription, you have a few options:
Measure your PD yourself using our online tool. (We’re currently outfitting our mobile site with this tool. For now, please use a desktop browser!)
Trained associates at many of our stores and showrooms can measure your PD. See if this is available at your nearest location.
Most optical shops will measure your PD for free or a small fee. We are happy to reimburse you the cost of one optical measurement (up to $50) within 30 days of purchase.
Please note: we’re unable to fill expired eyeglasses prescriptions as well as prescriptions for contact lenses. If there is no expiration date written on your prescription, Warby Parker will fulfill the order only if the current date is within two years from the date of the exam.
There are two ways you can get a prescription:
Book an eye exam with us. At some of our retail stores, you can get your eyes examined by an on-site licensed independent optometrist. Make an appointment here.
Make an appointment with your local optometrist, or find an available doctor through ZocDoc. Ask your doctor to include your pupillary distance (PD) on your prescription. You can also measure it online here. (Unfortunately, it’s not available on our mobile site just yet!)
We cannot fill prescriptions with a sphere (SPH) value stronger than -18.00 or +6.00. If you do not have astigmatism, the SPH will be the only value on your prescription (no cylinder (CYL) or axis).
If you have astigmatism in either eye, you will have a cylinder value in your prescription. We cannot fill prescriptions with a cylinder value stronger than ±10.00.
We can fulfill progressive lens prescriptions with ADD powers that fall between +0.75 and +3.75 and a combined sphere (SPH) and cylinder (CYL) value between -10.00 and +6.00. We cannot fill prescriptions with a cylinder value stronger than ±4.00.
If you have any additional questions about progressives, we’re happy to help. Chat with us here.
If you’d like prescription sunglasses, we can fulfill your order up to a combined sphere and cylinder value of -7.00. Some of our smaller sunglasses frames can accommodate slightly stronger prescriptions. We also offer progressive lenses and are currently able to accommodate ADD powers that fall between +0.75 and +3.75.
We’re happy to help you figure out the best frames for you based on your prescription strength. Give us a call at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET.
If we are unable to fill your prescription, you can still purchase Warby Parker frames. Call us at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET to purchase a pair of frames with demo lenses for 10% off. Just take them to your doctor and you’re all set.
||Free with purchase of $95 frame|
(Compared to $100< in other optical shops)

If you’d like progressive lenses, we offer them starting at $295, at our stores and online. We do not currently offer bifocal lenses, but if your doctor has written this type of prescription for you, we can fill them as progressives (similar to no-line bifocals) or as single-vision. If you would like single-vision lenses, please write your preference for distance or reading right on the prescription itself, or call us at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET, to let us know what you’d like.
Single-vision lenses offer one correction throughout the entire lens (usually for distance or reading).
Progressive lenses offer multiple focal corrections in one lens, providing a seamless transition from distance correction on top to reading correction on bottom. This means you can see your whole field of vision without switching between multiple pairs of glasses. (Neat.)
Progressive prescriptions typically include an ADD value.
On each product page, the frame measurements are listed as three numbers. The first number refers to the width of one lens in millimeters, the second number to the width of the bridge, and the third to the length of one of the temple arms.
Most glasses (including all Warby Parker frames) have these numbers printed on the inside of the temple arm.
If your Warby Parker frames don’t fit you perfectly, our skilled opticians would be happy to adjust your frames at some of our stores. If you’re not in the area, most optical shops will make minor adjustments for free or a small fee. We are happy to reimburse you the cost of one adjustment (up to $50) within 30 days of purchase. Just send us an electronic copy of the bill and we’ll take care of it. Please note that if you decide to have your frames adjusted, be sure to tell the technician to use low heat and light pressure on your glasses, especially if you have high index lenses. Too much heat may cause bubbles, cloudiness, or even cracks to appear. Yikes.
To thoroughly clean your lenses, simply rinse them with a mild dish soap and lukewarm water, and dry them with a soft cloth. For day-to-day cleaning of light smudges, a few swipes of the cleaning cloth included in your case should do the trick.
Please be careful to avoid using hot water on your lenses (especially if they are high-index lenses), as they can develop bubbles or cracks when exposed to high heat.

If you need your glasses in a hurry, give us a call at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET, to talk about expediting your order at our labs for an extra $30. Unfortunately, orders for progressive glasses and progressive sunglasses are not able to be expedited at this time.
We have a 30-day, no-questions-asked return policy for all of our eyewear. Additionally, we have a one-year, no-scratch guarantee for our lenses, and we’ll replace your scratched lenses for free within that timeline. Unfortunately, gift card purchases are non-refundable.
Give us a call at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET, or email us at email@example.com so we can get started on the return or exchange process. We’d love to hear your feedback too.
We want you to love the look and feel of your new frames, so if they fit anything less than comfortably, let us know! Our glasses are only available in one set size, but we’d be happy to recommend a style that might fit you better. Adjusting your frames is also another easy option to improve the fit. Find a retail location that offers adjustments here. If you’re not in the area, most optical shops will make minor adjustments for free or a small fee. We are happy to reimburse you the cost of one adjustment (up to $50) within 30 days of purchase.
Sometimes it takes a few days to adjust to a new prescription, but if you’re having ongoing trouble with your glasses, give us a call at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET. We’ll help determine the issue so that we can re-make your glasses and make sure that your prescription is just right!
We can’t replace lenses in non-Warby Parker frames, but we are happy to put brand new lenses into your Warby Parker glasses and sunglasses. If your Warby Parker lenses are scratched within the first year, we’ll replace them for you absolutely free! Give us a call at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a replacement.

Our gift and e-gift cards make great presents. Purchase them here. Physical and e-gift cards are not refundable.
Your gift card will arrive in five business days.
We don’t deal with insurance providers directly, but you can request a receipt for your use when applying for reimbursement.
A flexible spending account is also known as an FSA. Like a health savings account (HSA), it’s a program that allows you to set aside money (before taxes) for specific health care expenses. If you’re unsure whether or not you have an FSA, please check with your insurance company.
Warby Parker accepts FSA dollars for all prescription eyewear purchases (this includes prescription sunglasses and progressives too!) and exams, as long as your FSA or HSA (health savings account) card is affiliated with a major credit card. If you would like to use your FSA or HSA card to pay for a portion of your purchase and apply the remaining balance to a different card, please call us at 888.492.7297, Monday–Friday, 9 a.m.–9 p.m. ET. We’re happy to set that up.
Just make sure you have an up-to-date prescription and your pupillary distance (PD). Your PD is the distance in millimeters between your pupils and helps us center your prescription correctly in your frames. If your doctor did not include your PD on your prescription, you can measure it using our online tool here. (Unfortunately, it’s not available on our mobile site just yet!)
