    I always wondered. I mean sure the glass is perfectly custom made for your needs and might have some extra stuff like color change under iUV, but the frame is just fragile plastic with a bit of metal

      where i live the most expensive ones are 280 and the cheapest are around 20, and when you buy one you get one for free as well, so basically two glasses for 280 for example.
