2023 at a Glance

This past year was marked by some exciting new milestones in both our social mission and our eye care business. Below are some highlights!

Our community is made up of everyone from the neighbors in our own backyard to the beneficiaries of our international efforts to bring vision care to those who need it most. In 2010, we launched our Buy a Pair, Give a Pair programโ€”and today it has served over 80 countries and provided over 15 million pairs of glasses. 

In 2015, we created Pupils Project, a program that works with local organizations and government agencies to give free vision screenings, eye exams, and glasses to schoolchildrenโ€”for many of whom this is their first pair. This model helps eliminate barriers to access by providing free prescription glasses and meeting children at school, where teachers are often the first to spot vision issues.

Every year we calculate our carbon footprint, the estimated sum of greenhouse gas emissions, which are the principal cause of climate change. We then purchase offsets to neutralize the footprint of our operations. We take our impact on the planet seriously and are proud to be carbon-neutral for our operational emissions since our founding.

Employees

Warby Parker wouldnโ€™t be where it is today without every one of its team members. As we grow, we stay true to who we are by working to develop a team thatโ€™s diverse, well-rounded, and thoughtfulโ€”one where everyone feels respected, valued, and equipped with the right tools to be successful.

Highlights from 2023
Customers

Each and every day, our team aims to create high-quality products and deliver remarkable experiences that delight our more than two million happy customers.

In each customer touchpoint, thereโ€™s an opportunity to bring excitement to a product that can change someoneโ€™s life. Enhancing the entire end-to-end customer journey is what motivates our team and pushes us toward continuous innovation.

In 2023, we continued to expand our vision services: By the end of the year, 82% of our stores offered eye exams. We also launched new collaborations with Jimmy Fallon, Marvel, A$AP Nast, and Emma Chamberlain, to name a few, and expanded our product offerings through new launches like precision progressivesโ€”our latest lenses which use more in-depth measurements to optimize vision, cut down on peripheral distortion, and give a wider field of view.
