As seen in its L.A. expansion over the last few years, Warby Parker is clearly on a mission to become four-eyed Angelenos' friendly neighborhood optometry shop. The eyewear startup closed out the decade with its 14th Southern California location on West Third Street — and to celebrate, the brand tapped frequent collaborator and artist Geoff McFetridge (who also decked out the company's first L.A. location on Abbot Kinney) to create an eye-popping hand-painted mural featuring larger-than-life metal glasses sculptures.
Located on a prime corner spot formerly occupied by Regency Jewelry, the shop offers Warby Parker's full collection of modern and vintage-inspired optical frames and sunglasses for women, men, and kids ($95 per pair), plus its just-launched Scout line of daily contact lenses ($110 for a three-month supply) as well as products from Acuvue, Biofinity, and other contacts brands.
In addition to the label's new Halo sunglasses range, expect to find exclusives such as the slim, teardrop-shaped Downing frame in a special Jet Black and Mauve Gradient lens colorway alongside its sunnies collab with McFetridge, which is being re-released only at the West Third Street store for a limited time.
On top of offering optician consultations and online order pickups in-store (just head to the Reference Desk) and accepting select vision insurance (Anthem, Cigna, FSA, HSA, Spectera, VSP, and UnitedHealthcare are just a few), the new space also offers in-store eye exams by a third-party optometrist.
