“Why compromise when it comes to glasses? Bespoke spectacles and sunglasses fit perfectly because they are expressly designed and handmade to suite a person’s face, coloring, physical characteristics and lifestyle,” says Tom Davies. “And there are no new skills for an optician to learn when creating bespoke frames. It’s comparable to working with a rimless product, but with any style of frame.”
