Warby's last week, so I was happy to test out the feature to not only search for my next pair of glasses, but also to let you know, dear reader, if Warby Parker's new AR feature is convincing enough to be useful.
Warby Parker Virtual Try-On
Unlike the Home Try-On option, where Warby Parker finds you five frames among a limited selection to test out, the Virtual Try-On feature is available for any pair of frames you find in the app. When you look at a pair of frames in the app, all you need to do is pull it out.
The AR is really convincing. The frames are positioned correctly – neither too high nor too low on your nose. And there's the depth of the image so you can move your head around the angles. If there are different color options for a pair of frames, you can tap to view the various colors. While in the AR mode, you can simply swipe sideways to view the next or previous pair. The AR frames load quickly, which makes the process quick and easy and not frustrating.
If you create an account, you can tap the little heart icon to add it to your list of favorites. 3-2-1 countdown to snap a screenshot of virtual frames on your phone or share on Instagram, Twitter or via text.
Virtual Try-On as Step One

I still need to know how to do this on a pair of frames. 19659016] : Realistic mixed race glasses are real small.
