About Us


Our mission is simple - “To support Independent Opticians in their mission to stay Independent.”

The Eyewear Company was launched in 2007 in a small Cotswold village, with the aim to make outstanding Authentic Independent Eyewear available to Independent Opticians in the UK. The founders have considerable experience in dispensing exquisite eyewear, launching iconic brands, and providing specialised account management services to businesses of all shapes and sizes.

Our family run business has blossomed by making authentic eyewear accessible and affordable to independent opticians for almost 15 years and delivering an exceptional and personal customer service. Our approach of partnership provides a platform for Opticians to realise deliverable points of difference through our unique portfolio of award-winning eyewear, and flexible account management strategies.

Our collections are created by world leading eyewear designers, each with decades of experience of setting eyewear trends for the rest of the world to follow. Our philosophy is to ensure the independent sector is at the forefront of these eyewear trends as they evolve, giving you the edge whilst the rest of market tries to catch up. Now that’s Independent Thinking!

Every member of our team is passionate about two things – Eyewear, obviously! And you, our customers. To us, no customer is just account number. It’s great to talk, so, talk to us and discover the advantage Authentic Independent Eyewear and TEC can deliver to your business.
