Southern Seas was founded in 2013 in Cambridge, England, by Dr Tony Brooks. Since that time, we have grown at a rate of ten percent a month, mostly by repeat custom. We currently sell around 8000 pairs of glasses a month on Amazon and eBay. 

We think you should choose Southern Seas Glasses because we are passionate about providing quality eyewear at very affordable prices. We think that the high prices charged for glasses in many countries, whether online or in bricks-and-mortar stores, bear little relation to the actual cost of providing them.

Therefore, our long term vision is to offer glasses at very reasonable prices without compromising quality in any way. In order to do this, our buyers scour East Asia for the best quality lenses and frames, which we them buy in bulk, in order to pass the savings on to you, the customer. We ship to our orders daily from Hong Kong, via the fast and reliable Hong Kong International mail service.

Our team has a combined experience of over 15 years in internet and eyewear retailing. We also have a consultant optometrist, who can answer any technical questions you might have about eyewear in general, or your prescription in particular.
