Speckles is the first all-in-one online platform housing innovative and affordable products as well as information and support for parents and their children with vision needs. Spackes has created adjustable glasses that are designed to grow with a child’s face and be hard for them to damage as well as colourful eye patches.
Speckles is ultimately improving the accessibility of reliable information and affordable, quality eye care products for parents of children with vision needs, as well as raising awareness of the importance of early intervention in child vision impairment.
