The new age of buying prescription glasses online in the UK is dawning and to buy glasses online is fashionable, trendy and everybody is joining in. Specscart are changing the way people buy prescription glasses and designing glasses for every occasion. Going out for dinner or going shopping with friends, never wear the same glasses for both again. Boost your style by adding matching eyewear!
Times Have Changed
Remember how many pairs of shoes average Joe had 20 years ago? one or at most, two pairs. Times have changed drastically in the UK and prescription glasses are fashion accessories that people change for work, leisure and to match their clothing. We observed an industry which has been the same for years, dominated by certain big players - making a person's most intimate accessory simply a sight correction device that people hide away. Even today an average individual will have maximum 1 or 2 pairs of prescription glasses. Also those who aren’t prescribed are unlikely to have any.
Why Specscart Started
We started Specscart.co.uk in 2017 in Manchester University and decided to change the way people in the UK perceive prescription glasses. We believe that glasses are the most intimate accessory a person can have. We believe people should have a place in their wardrobe for many designs of glasses. However, due to the huge costs, people started to perceive glasses as a medical instrument. How could you consider having 10 pairs of glasses when certain retailers charge over £100-£150 for a decent pair of glasses without anti-reflective lenses. For example, if you want to buy extremely stylish frames like cat eye glasses, you would have had to spend a fortune. And why would a non-prescribed individual burn his pockets for this accessory when he’s has no need too. Specscart is born to solve this problem and change the prescription glasses online and offline industry for good.
Specscart has made anti-reflective, impact resistant, scratch resistant lenses as complimentary. Also, to encourage non-prescriptive consumers to buy UK glasses online we’ve introduced 20% OFF SOME SELECTED FRAMES. We are encouraging the use of glasses for anyone and everyone. We’ve been successful in connecting consumers direct to manufacturers while eliminating all the middlemen. At Specscart one can easily get a high quality pair of glasses online starting from just £30. Also, every pair is hand-glazed in the UK. Be it the charming rounders or fashionable cat eye glasses frames, you’ll find every style of glasses on our UK online store.
SPECSCART Award Winning UK Glasses Company
This has been made possible by winning the UK Venture Further Award 2018 and The Albert Gubay Award 2017. Specscart is backed by Manchester Enterprise Centre (University of Manchester) who awarded our startup with giving monetary funding and a free retail space for 2 years. What happens when there’s a great demand for an accessory, yet it is being sold at artificially high prices. A better alternative is born. You'll find every available style of frames on specscart.co.uk. We make shopping for prescription glasses online UK fun and easy!
It's not often that we see a shop rated a perfect 5. There is a reason - top class customer support. Thank you Halina. But there is more. I needed a pair of specs, and with my high power, none of the high street or online shops could guarantee a one day turnaround (I checked with all the big names and more), except this one. Ordered on Thursday morning, shipped on Friday afternoon, arrived on Saturday morning. Wow. Will most certainly recommend.
Fantastic company! I discovered them while searching for home trial glassses on Google and I’m so glad I did! Excellent customer service, super fast and efficient! The website is very easy to use and very user friendly. While ordony glasses, I had some technical problems which were resolved within seconds by chat. The glasses arrived 2 days after ordering and came in a lovely box (looked a little bit like an iPhone box ;) ), together with an adjustment took and cleaning spray. The company certainly deserves the award that they recently received! :)
I love my new glasses! The range Specscart offer is cool and stylish and I had no trouble finding glasses that suited me. I am delighted with the cost too, especially after years of paying way over £100 for glasses that were just ok. I'm telling all my pals. Thanks for bringing great glasses at great prices.
Very impressed with the quality and price of the glasses offered. Really easy to chose frames and order with fast delivery. The 180 degree viewing tool on the website is excellent. Customer service is amazing. Forget the high street shops, specscart is much better. Would highly recommend!
Brilliant place. I got to try as many frames as i liked, and that 40% off my first frames, with the free lenses, meant that my whole setup was only £23. It got sent to me the next day! Customer service was excellent and i spoke to an optician to clear up what my prescription meant. I couldn't have asked for more.
The delivery was fast and the sunglasses are the best quality I have had for not an extreme price. Very impressed and will be using for my normal glasses as well going forward. Great product at a great price.
Wonderful, well made glasses with a screwdriver, cloth and glasses case, delivery in only 2 days. AMAZING!
I was in doubt weather my international prescription would be accepted in the UK being a tourist. The staff was extremely helpful and cleared all my doubts. Impressed with the next day delivery of eyeglasses! Would recommend to everyone.
There are alot of free goodies and quality is superb. I will definitely order again and would highly recommend.Had ordered my prescription sunglasses online, was really surprised as to how cheap they were as compared to other sites. I was a bit concerned about the quality whilst ordering, however took a chance. I must say it was a pleasant surprise.
I bought 2 pairs of glasses on a Friday (at the prices how could I not!) and picked them up on the Monday and I couldn't be happier! I belive they can do a 24hr service.The Good - The frames are super comfortable and high quality The lenses themselves came with anti reflection and anti scratch coating as standard. I haven't had any trouble adjusting from my old pair. The bad - Nothing at all! I'll be telling my family to get a set from Specscart asap! Cheers!
To anyone who knows me fully, I am a full time glasses wearer (bad genetics from both parents, my brother escaped the tragedy) Over the course of three years, the glasses on the left have been thrown around, dropped and their recent tragedy? Being stood on as I got out the shower (explains why I need glasses right?) Now, it’s time to retire the broken framed, broken armed glasses for something..Less geeky! The box the new glass came in reminds me of opening an iPhone, something this company hasn’t skipped on is 1.) value for money 2.) customer service and 3.) the quality of not just the glasses, but the overall package you get, which includes a mini screwdriver on a key ring (handy) the glasses cleaner (don’t get that from other competitors and the glasses case that isn’t ugly. I can’t thank the person I’ve spoken to with every query, they even went so far as to call me so nothing was misconstrued. I’ll be back!
I am really happy with my glasses, designer and a huge selection to choose from. The young man in the walkden branch is brilliant, customer focused and explains everything about the ethos of the brand and the quality you get, you don't wait over a week in fact you get your glasses in the next day or next. The price is really good and quality brilliant includes with your glasses, a hard case, cleaning cloth with spray and mini screwdriver. Amazing. Tell your friends and family. Also I contacted the online option and they were so helpful with any questions I had. I'll be going here for my glasses from now on xx
I normally don't bother doing reviews but this company has the BEST customer service I have ever experienced. I was helped by a guy called Sid and he was the most patient and helpful employee I have met. Their glasses are also very good quality and arrived with prescription after a couple of days. Thank you so much for your awesome service, keep it up!
Great product with excellent service. I had a minor shipping issue and when I called the company they were very sincere and even expedited my shipping so my pair showed up earlier than I ever expected! Would recommend
Excellent service at the Manchester Branch. I was assisted by Sid who helped me in choosing glasses. I felt comfortable and that nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend their service to everyone
Stumbled upon this places, it's hundreds of pounds cheaper than vision express or Specsavers, I got two pairs of rimless glasses for 1/3 the price of 1 pair at the other stores, the staff are super friendly, not pushy and have lots of useful advice. Would recommend to everybody and will definately use again. Thank you all so much.
