The Truth Behind Designer Reading Glasses
In an ideal world, everyone who needs glasses would be able to invest in high quality eyewear; after all, seeing and reading well is essential to navigating the world we live in. At the same time, nobody wants to pay exorbitant prices, even for designer eyeglass frames. So what’s the trick for getting a fair deal on quality frames and lenses?
If you’re looking to buy cheap reading glasses, and don’t want to dish out hundreds of dollars for brand name eyeglasses, here’s what you should know. Most high-end designer frames aren’t even designed by Gucci, Prada, Ray Ban, Oakley, Ralph Lauren, Versace, or any of the names stamped on them; they’re owned and manufactured by a company called Luxottica, which licenses the brand names and sticks them on the glasses.
Here's something else you should know: scientific research suggests that most designer glasses show no overall difference in quality with generic brands. High-quality, off-brand eyeglasses bought at the supermarket may even last longer than the expensive brand names sold by your optometrist.
Another hot tip: try buying your eyeglasses online. It is possible to purchase a pair of reading or prescription glasses online – including lenses – for less than $40. There is enough online competition to keep the prices nice and low.
