Meet Roger Bacon

The English scholar Roger Bacon (1214-1292) is probably one of the most influential intellectual forces in the history of the modern world. He was an optics pioneer and one of the founding fathers of glasses. His ground-breaking philosophy is reflected in Roger Bacon glasses: we lead the field in exclusive, made to measure glasses to suit every taste and face.

100% unique, made to measure glasses for every face

Roger Bacon specializes in exclusive, made to measure glasses to suit and fit every taste and face. By using a high definition display, your customers can try on all of our frames virtually. This combination represents an unbeatable alternative to the current – and expensive – trend for handmade and classic glasses.

Roger Bacon uses ‘additive manufacturing’ in which every pair of glasses perfectly matches the wishes of every client. Our glasses will be delivered just like every other manufacturer’s, while the finish of polished glasses works exactly as you’re used to.  

The advantages of working with Roger Bacon

In addition, Roger Bacon will improve customer loyalty: whenever a customer makes a scan, he or she will be guaranteed to return for their pair of Roger Bacon glasses.

Finally, Roger Bacon provides a solution to a problem that many opticians face: large stocks. Thanks to our unique high definition display, customers can instantly try on every frame virtually. Stock is a thing of the past – our frames will only be produced after purchase.
