Lenskart - About Us


Founded in 2010 by an ex-Microsoft 'techie' with no money but truckloads of relentless passion to make a difference in this world, Lenskart is India's fastest growing eyewear business today.

With a rapidly growing business reaching out to over 100,000 customers a month via a unique combination of a strong online business at www.lenskart.com, uniquely designed 1400+ stores, and a first-of-its-kind 'Home Eye Check-up' service, Lenskart is revolutionizing the eyewear industry in India.

Cause: 1/3rd of our population needs glasses but doesn't have access to them, making us the blind capital of the world with over 15 million blind people.

With the cause in mind, Peyush along with his two co-founders, Amit Chaudhary, and Sumeet Kapahi, founded 'Valyoo Technologies'.

The aim was to truly add 'valyoo' to customers' lives by eliminating the retailers, setting up our own high-quality manufacturing, and supplying directly to the consumer everywhere in India. This not only cuts costs but also helps us maintain high-quality standards. Our in-house robotic lens manufacturing and assembly ensure 100% precision and top-quality control.

Offering the best quality products at affordable prices has helped us grow more than 500% in the last 12 years, and we are the top optical business in India today. From servicing 30 customers per day to more than 30,000 today, we have come a long way. Our commitment to consumer satisfaction and innovative technologies has garnered tremendous support from those who believe in our cause.


India is the blind capital of the world

  • 15 million people in India are blind, which is 50% of the blind people in the world.
  • 75% of these are cases of avoidable blindness. Thanks to the country's acute shortage of optometrists and donated eyes for the treatment of corneal blindness.
  • 153 million people in the country need reading glasses but do not have access to them.
  • Our country needs 40,000 optometrists. Unfortunately, we only have 8,000.

Revolutionize the eyewear industry in India

Lenskart's aim is to help drop this number marginally in the coming years, which can be achieved by providing high-quality eyewear to millions of Indians at affordable prices, giving free eye check-ups at home, and extending our services to the remote corners of India.


Make customers feel 'wow' by doing something that has never been done before in the eyewear industry. It began with an aim. An aim to provide every Indian access to high-quality designer glasses without shelling out their pocket. We rocked our brains. We broke our backs to come up with a plan that will not just change the way this industry works but also completely sweep customers off their feet. It can only be achieved if we provide.


Made by robots

We are India's first and only brand to use the robotic technique that delivers glasses that are accurate to three decimal places. These machines, imported from Germany, ensure perfection on all fronts: an automated system that allows to inspect lenses, determine the geometric center, and load the lenses for edging without the need for a finishing block.

Mind of machine

Our people have zero tolerance for error, and our call center aims to delight every customer, solve their problems, and work on their feedback.
