“Glasses are not only sight correction devices but also our most intimate fashion accessory,” – says Specscart. Specscart, a Walkden based growing eyewear start-up, offers glasses at a fraction of high-street prices that are built-in superior quality.
In Britain, almost 35 million people wear glasses, and if you think a large proportion might result in eyeglasses to be affordable. You might be incorrect. Many retailers in the UK charge a fortune for even a minimally designed pair of glasses while a fancy pair costs around £200 on average. In the atmosphere of high expense, glasses are not only restricted to one time buy but also thought of as a medical device rather than a fashion accessory. How do you expect to buy more pairs when the prices burn your pockets?
