“India has enormous demand for eyewear, and the organised play is growing by 2x every year. We are extremely bullish on Bharat opportunity, and we see a tectonic shift in consumer behaviour due to the increasing screen times across new-age consumers from Tier III, IV, and V towns of India. We have seen the business grow by almost 60% from FY21 to FY22, and we are determined to double down in the coming years,” Shivi Singh, Founder and CEO, ClearDekho, said to Your Story.

The company claims to have opened over 100 outlets across 40 locations since its founding in 2017. The Ghaziabad-based company intends to expand by 1,000 retail locations over the following three years by working with the country’s current optical merchants.
