Chakshu London was created by a team of optometrists in 2016, friends who all graduated together from City University in London. Our co-founders have worked in a variety of different optometric settings from independent stores to retail chains. Combined they have over 30 years of experience in the optical world.

Together they designed the brand Chakshu London.  Frames which were thoughtfully designed by the co-founders and handcrafted in a small family-run factory in Italy. All frames go through a meticulous 72 step manufacturing process, to ensure pristine quality with each pair. Premium Italian acetate is used in all of our frames, which offers an air of luxury, unique colours and a lightweight feel.

All glasses include HOYA lenses with their premium Hi-Vision Longlife coating. 

Our ethos is that the best should be given as standard.
