About Us

Discover The Specs Factory Ltd Difference
Proudly Serving the Norwich, Ipswich & Chelmsford Areas

We’re a family-run, independent opticians with years of experience in providing great service, fantastic value and spectacular quality.

We’ve based our business on a vision of bringing the manufacturing and dispensing of glasses closer together. All prescription glasses ordered from us are produced in our state of the art glazing facility in Norwich. This way we can provide a more complete and cost-efficient service, so our customers enjoy great prescription glasses for less.

We know that glasses aren’t just an accessory – they’re an important part of who you are. And, because you need to get the perfect pair (or pairs), we look to ensure we do everything right.

Pop in to our Norwich, Ipswich or Chelmsford branch. We’d love to see how we can help you!
