    In my country most of the glasses can be bought for under 50$ and if u want to buy well known brands its not more than 100$ maybe even less. Like most glasses I've worn never cost me more than 20$ and were good as well.

    Next Luxotica should buy out all the laser eye surgery machine companies and jack the price 100000% so no doctors can afford one for their practice. Then you can’t even ditch the frames by getting laser lol.
    At 400$ a pair why wouldn’t everyone get laser eye surgery? From the ads posted all over the city it seems to only cost a couple thousand. Wouldn’t that pay for itself in eye glasses savings in a matter of years (depending how often people buy new frames)

    I'm actually not surprised by this. My dad worked for a factory that made (of all things) eyeglass cases. They made the cases for nearly all of the separate eyeglass and sunglass companies. This industry contraction is the trend that bought the company that he worked for. I just didn't know it had gotten this bad.

    Is buying online really a good solution? I mean I can get kick ass frames but do online companies actually cover the fact that each glass needs to be custom?
