About Us


Launched in 1999 by British optometrist Mr Lakh Dollay, designerglasses.co.uk is the UK’s oldest online glasses store. Our mission was then, and still is today: "To supply our customers with the very best range of top designer glasses at the most competitive prices, backed by exceptional levels of service."

We are established specialists in the supply of designer frames, designer prescription glasses and designer prescription sunglasses. As you would expect from a name like Designer Glasses, all our frames and branded accessories, such as cases and cleaning cloths that come with your eyewear are 100% genuine.

The quality brands that we stock, presently includes Bvlgari, Gucci, Alain Mikli, Oakley, Ray-Ban, Face à Face, Tag Heuer, Philippe Starck, Tom Ford, Markus T, Dolce and Gabbana, ic! berlin, Emporio Armani and more, at prices up to 50 percent lower than high street store prices. We also offer FREE quality single vision, anti-glare and scratch resistant coated lenses with all of our eyewear.

At Designer Glasses, we pride ourselves on our very high levels of customer service and optical experience. All of our customer services staff are fully trained and will liaise directly with our qualified dispensing opticians, if necessary, to resolve any queries you may have.

Unlike some other online stores, we have our own specialist lab in Woolwich, where our expert technicians will assemble your prescription lenses. If the frame you have ordered is in stock, this allows us to supply your prescription glasses to your door within 48 hour from placing your order. And remember, we ship all our UK orders with FREE recorded delivery. Orders to Europe and Worldwide cost just £7.50 and £9.50 respectively.
