Glassic was founded by Kailash Nichani & Devesh Nichani for the sole reason to sell great quality, fashionable eyewear at affordable prices.
The founders of Glassic spent their formative years in the traditional retail eyewear industry, where the market perception was “good quality and fashionable eyewear comes at a price.” The founders set out to change that perception.
Traditionally, glasses are manufactured, distributed & sold by a handful of major corporations. Because of this, the prices of glasses are artificially high. By designing & manufacturing frames and sunglasses in house, we can offer good quality fashionable eyewear at an affordable price.
At Glassic, we recognise that shopping for eyewear online doesn’t provide you with compelling options to:
Therefore, we have created two major features to help make your purchase experience easier & better:
The Glassic virtual try on is a state of the art technology that aims at revolutionising the digital eyewear purchasing experience. Based on augmented reality, it allows you to “try-on” our eyewear. Simply turn your webcam on, and immerse yourself in an experience so close to shopping in store that you might just forget you’re doing it all in front of your laptop screen. You can turn your face side to side just like you would in front of a mirror. It is extremely accurate thanks to the facial tracking feature. So advanced, yet easy & fun to use.
Today, there are literally thousands of lenses you can choose from. They differ in brands, thickness, quality & price. How do you know which lens is best for you? This is where our prescription tool comes in handy.
Simply choose your power in the prescription table and voila! the site recommends the best lens for you based on the power entered. Our prescription tool has about 2000 variants of eye powers pre-programmed and is fully equipped to accurately recommend which lens is best for you. Since we believe in selling the best quality product, we have tied up with Essilor, the world’s largest ophthalmic lens maker, for your prescription lenses.
We believe simplicity is the ultimate sophistication and have created a simple, yet powerful website with with powerful features. Our revolutionary customer service makes the experience of buying a pair of glasses fun & transparent.
