Health and safety in our stores

Our ability to offer glasses, contacts, eye exams, and other vision services is critical to everyday life, and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve been committed to providing a safe shopping experience for everyone, both online and in person. Here’s what you can expect when you visit a Warby Parker store to shop or get an eye exam.

What to know before your visit

  • Face masks are required; valve masks and gaiters are not allowed. Please wear a face mask during your entire visit—our team will be wearing them too :-)
  • You may experience a wait due to limited store capacity.
  • Some locations are offering appointments for one-on-one shopping and styling sessions, optician services, or comprehensive eye exams. Head here to find out about your store and schedule an appointment.
  • Coming in for an eye exam? The optometrist may give you a call the day before to better understand your eye health history and any concerns you may have.

What to do before your visit

  • Browse frames on our site so we both know what you’re looking for. You can also use the Warby Parker app to add styles to your Favorites or to try them on virtually (with an iPhone X and all newer models).
  • Check your prescription and the expiration date. (If you have it handy, bring it with you!) Some of our locations offer exams if you need to renew your prescription.
  • Stay home if you feel sick, have experienced any COVID-19 symptoms within the past 14 days, or have had contact with anyone infected. If you have an appointment, we can help you cancel or reschedule.
    • Symptoms include fever, chills, cough, difficulty breathing, fatigue, body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.
