Moreover, the eyewear firm said it managed to narrow losses during the quarter to $10.8 million.

​“Our first quarter performance represents a solid start to 2023,” said co-founder and co-CEO Dave Gilboa. “We achieved double-digit revenue growth, ahead of expectations and well above the current industry forecasted growth rate. We are particularly pleased to be driving strong market share gains while expanding adjusted EBITDA margin. Our teams are doing an excellent job of capturing demand in the current environment through our compelling value proposition, expanding portfolio of products and services, and delivering world class customer service.”

"While we continue to be cautious about near-term trends given the uncertain macroeconomic outlook, we remain optimistic about Warby Parker’s future,” added co-founder and co-CEO Neil Blumenthal.

“We are still in the early stages of building our store footprint and developing our holistic vision offering and see a long runway for sustained, profitable growth in the years ahead.”
