Our Story

Like superheroes, our brand also has an inspiring origin. Okay, it didn't involve any radioactive spider bites, but it's a lot more relatable. Our founder Sid broke his eyeglasses one day before his semester exams. The Manchester University student found himself wandering at Manchester City Centre, looking for a replacement. The glasses he found were either overpriced or mediocre quality (mostly both). The glasses were locked behind shelves like some treasure - the bigger the brand, the higher the security. The ones he liked cost well above £150. After paying an insane amount without even properly trying the glasses, the last straw was that they arrived much later after his exam.* Hope was lost here, but direction and purpose were found.

Sid got to work and came up with the idea of an award-winning eyewear startup Specscart.

Our Mission

Specscart is on a mission to revolutionise the eyewear industry by changing the way people perceive eyeglasses from being a tool of sight correction to a sustainably made fashion accessory, that is a true joy to wear.

Our Vision

Specscart aims to bring justice to the monopolistic eyewear industry. Our vision includes:

  • Challenging the status quo: We refuse to accept a system where affordability and style are sacrificed. No one should have to choose between clear vision and expressing their individuality all while ensuring the best possible prices.
  • Eyewear as fashion: Glasses are more than an instrument of sight correction; they are the most intimate fashion accessory that reflects personality, style, and mood. Just like our wardrobes, our eyewear collections should evolve to match our lives.
  • Empowerment through choice: We believe in providing an abundance of stylish, high-quality frames at accessible prices, empowering people to change their glasses as often as they change their outfits.

Specscart's Promise

We promise to never sell something that we won't buy ourselves. You get essential upgrades like anti-glare, anti-UV, anti-scratch, and impact-resistant coatings on all glasses for free. Plus, every order includes a protective case, designer cleaning cloth, cleaning solution, and a screwdriver. And to ensure your vision is at its best, Specscart offers free eye tests at all our stores - for everyone!

Who we are?

About Us

"Unedited Since 2017” Sid Wrote This When Specscart Was Just an Idea

Specscart is a Britain born startup which is born to bring justice to the eyewear market by making eyewear a Fast moving fashion accessory. A startup which is born to change glasses from being just an instrument for corrective sight into a fashionable accessory for daily wear. A fashion accessory that should be changed with the attire/occasion. Fashionable eyewear that has a place in your wardrobe. A fashion accessory that is intended to be your most intimate wearing. Unfortunately, it is limited to just 1(one) or a maximum of 2(two).

What do we stand for?

Well, Enough of the High Street Rip off!

We will change this! We will stand for it.

Jeff Bezos says

"There are 2 kinds of companies -

One who works hard to pull their prices up And who work hard to pull their prices down"

We follow the 2nd philosophy.

“If high-street stores expenses are higher & uncontrollable that doesn't mean that you will have to pay for them. We push ourselves to compete and provide the best quality, keeping our unnecessary and avoidable over-heads to the minimum by eliminating all the middlemen. And we try & try & try so that you get the best of the best. Because you deserve 10 glasses in your wardrobe in the 21st century.”

What's Driving Us?

When an old man came to our store with his glued and taped broken glasses and asked to repair them because they cost too much. When a customer is not able to afford his choice of frames.

When a person comes & asks do you accept NHS Vouchers It gives us pain

Why are people being over charged to the extent that they buy glasses once in 2-3 years? This has limited this fashion accessory to the ones who only need mandatory sight correction

We don t feel smart, to ask a customer Do you need UV protection for £XYZ-AND thus, all our lenses are anti reflective and UV protected. We want to change the industry. We want to offer every possible thing that should be upgraded with time. We want everyone to have glasses as a fashionable accessory with simultaneous vision correction/protection. And make a place for this most intimate fashionable accessory in your wardrobe. We want you to throw away those broken glasses and get these new ones because from now on it will not cost a fortune.
