Dhruv Gupta, CEO, GKBOptical.com said, “The intention behind building this application is to guide the user through their experience and enable them to virtually try eyewear before they buy; just like they would in a retail outlet. The virtual try-on was developed to make online eyewear shopping easy and fun for everyone on our site. And it’s open to use for anyone. It does not require login or signup. The application is always evolving, based on user feedback. Our team keeps thinking of new ways to make it better.”
