We aim to furnish our customers with beautiful, inspired frames and quality eyeglasses that are effective yet affordable.
Our Origin Story
The people behind Mouqy Eyewear are freelancers, digital nomads and individualists; characters that value the flexibility and freedom only offered by the freelance lifestyle.
With the advent of fast internet speeds, more people are embracing the freelance lifestyle, with companies moving away from the traditional 9 – 5. While most offices find themselves occupied by fewer people, remote workers and freelancers find themselves spending more time staring at their screens, working longer hours.
Remote working does not mean working less, it just means working at a location you actually want to be at instead of being stuck in an office all day. As a matter of fact, remote workers, freelancers and digital nomads spend more time working than dedicated office workers but are happier with their lifestyle, which makes them more willing to clock in more work hours.
However, more time spent working in front of a screen also means more health drawbacks, especially due to digital eye strain aka computer vision syndrome.
As freelancers ourselves, we’re happy to see more people working remotely, but we are also aware of the negative aspects of freelance life, especially when it comes to eye strain.
While there are plenty of options available to help alleviate digital eye strain, the good ones are too highly-priced while the affordable ones just weren’t effective enough.
So, we set a goal for ourselves: we wanted to create something to keep the eyes of the entire freelance community healthy in a sustainable, affordable yet effective way.
With that goal in mind, Mouqy Eyewear was born.
We take inspiration from the eyeglasses that we want to wear, and it just so happens that what we want to wear are designer frames – sleek, stylish and timeless pieces that never go out of style.
There’s only one problem – frames like these are usually ridiculously expensive.
Hence, we had to find a way to manufacture a collection of high-quality eyeglasses that are good looking while keeping our prices low to make them more accessible to the general public.
The only way we can realistically achieve that while maintaining quality is by reducing expenses, so we made the decision to cut our biggest expense of all – we did away with physical outlets, and made our brand available online only.
We also managed to keep our prices low by doing everything in-house. We oversee everything, starting from the concept, designing, down to the manufacturing of our eyeglasses, so we have total control of the quality while reducing external 3rd party costs.
By bypassing stores and shipping directly to you from our factory, we’re able to keep our prices competitive while maintaining the high level of quality that our customers have come to know us for.

As important as it is to keep our eyeglasses looking good, we know that it’s even more important for it to be practical. This is why we’ve equipped our lenses with technology that keeps Mouqy’s functionality relevant in today’s digital world.
