Have you ever thought how many pairs of shoes your average Joe owned 20 years ago? 1, or at most, 2? But there has been a drastic change in the way we perceive accessories like shoes and watches. This is due to various additional factors like economy changes and rise in disposable incomes, etc. Now everyone has a pair for EVERY OCCASION! But what about the accessory that's the closest to us, is the most intimate, and actually makes our life easier in this age? We observed an industry which has been the same ever since, due to the domination of certain big players - making a person's most intimate accessory simply a sight correction device. Yes, we are talking about the eyewear industry! Even today an average individual will have maximum 1 or 2 pairs of eyeglasses. Also those who aren’t prescribed are unlikely to have any! We started in 2017 in Manchester University and decided to change the way people perceive glasses. We believe that glasses are the most intimate accessory one can have. We believe people should have a place in their wardrobe for eyeglasses. However, due to the huge costs, people started to perceive this accessory as a medical instrument. Why would one have 10 pairs when other retailers will charge you over £100-£150 for a decent pair without anti-reflective lenses. For example, if you want to buy extremely stylish frames like cat eye prescription glasses, you would have had to spend a bomb. And why would a non-prescribed individual burn his pockets for this accessory when he will think that he’s not prescribed. Specscart is born to solve this problem and change the eyewear industry for good. Specscart has made anti-reflective, impact resistant, scratch resistant lenses as complimentary. Also, to encourage non-prescriptive consumers to buy glasses we’ve introduced FREE FIRST FRAME. Anyone who buys glasses for the first time from Specscart, will have his first frame absolutely free. We are encouraging the use of glasses by 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 eyeglasses starting from £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 online. This has been made possible by winning the 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 on Cat eye prescription glasses for example remind you of the fashionable 60s. We make shopping glasses online fun and easy!
