About Cubitts

We were founded in King's Cross, London, in 2013.


Handmade Frames

Our frames are made in the traditional way, and go through fifty crafted stages of production over a period of six weeks including four separate stages of polishing to ensure a glorious lustre. Most of our frames are constructed with custom Cubitts pins that secure right through the acetate - this is called pin drilling. This process is done by hand and takes more time and skill, but means hinges can be easily maintained.

Eye Exams

Comprehensive, honest and enjoyable eye examinations are available at all of our sites. Using advanced technology, including fundus cameras to photograph the back of your eyeballs, each examination lasts around thirty to forty minutes and is taken by one of our team of optometrists, who will talk you through each step. Eye examinations cost £25 with a pair of spectacles or sunglasses, and £40 without.
