Toronto-based Specsy has announced the launch of its technology-driven 3-D printed custom eyewear line.
The company provides eye care professionals with a retail-ready app to design custom glasses tailored to their patient’s aesthetic preferences and technical requirements.
The Specsy app uses augmented reality, allowing patients to design frames on a live image of their face. Eye care professionals can use Specsy’s patent-pending measurement tool to verify all dimensions of the patient’s custom frames, including bridge and temples.
By crafting every pair of frames to order, based on the patient’s design and dimensions, Specsy provides eye care professionals with the opportunity to offer a truly custom frame, the company says.
“After extensive research and development, we are thrilled to be introducing cutting-edge innovation and technology to the optical field,” says Milan Madhavji, Specsy’s head of product development. “Specsy will change the way optical professionals approach frame fitting by removing any restrictions currently faced when working with a fixed inventory of frames.”
Specsy utilizes an in-house multi-colour 3-D printer to craft their frames.
Retail pricing for a Specsy frame is $350 CAD.
With a plastic resin frame forming their core collection, Specsy has their eyes set on offering a custom metal frame in the first quarter of 2018 and new innovative materials into the future.
