The Story

Inspiration starts with a problem. Affordable glasses are made cheaply. Nerdy Frames was founded with a single mission – to provide you with stylish and affordable eyewear – without compromising on quality. Launched in New York City in 2012, Nerdy Frames is the brainchild of Harlem native Geraldo Delgado.


Nerdy Frames’ roots are humble. The idea for Nerdy Frames was born in an apartment in New York City. The first few frames were designed and made in a small bedroom, you can imagine the mess.  We successfully sold the first batch of eyeglasses and Nerdy Frames expanded to an office in Harlem NYC, where larger quantities could be made. Slowly, but steadily, through word of mouth we have been able to grow. We now have offices in New York City and Cleveland and are able to deliver frames to the entire country.


We now maintain an online-focused presence to keep your cost as low as possible and give you the best quality, plain and simple. Try us out at home or virtually, we have a no-hassle return policy.
