How it works

Getting new glasses can be very expensive, especially when your prescription changes frequently, so that’s why we’ve created a platform to help you buy and sell old frames!

Whether you’ve got old frames lying around the house you’re looking to get rid of, or you’re wanting to save some money on your next pair of glasses, take a look through our website.


One day, while the twenty year old Irene updated her prescription glasses for the tenth time, she suddenly wondered to herself… “if only there was a place I could easily sell all my old frames?”…  and that’s how the idea of GlassCycle came to be.

But GlassCycle also has an important twist, we’re a charity working hard to provide new glasses for underprivileged children and teens who just can’t afford them. So whilst you enjoy your new glasses, you can also feel good about helping someone else achieve clear vision.
