Southern Seas was founded in 2013 in Cambridge, England, by Dr Tony Brooks. We have just sold our quarter-of-a-millionth pair of glasses.

Why choose Southern Seas Glasses? Because we are passionate about providing quality eyewear at affordable prices. We think that the high prices charged for glasses in many countries, whether online or in stores, bear little relation to the actual cost of providing them.

Our long term vision is therefore to offer glasses at reasonable prices without compromising quality in any way. In order to do this, our buyers source the best quality lenses and frames in East Asia, which we then buy in bulk, in order to pass the savings on to you, the customer. We are based in Hong Kong and ship orders daily from there, shipping takes around a week to the UK and two weeks to the US.

Our team has a combined experience of over 15 years in internet retailing and fitting of eyewear. Please feel free to contact us at any time with questions you might have about glasses in general, or your prescription in particular, at
