Are you looking exclusively for designer frames or sunglasses, either with or without a prescription? I haven’t been exactly thrilled with the selection of designer prescription frames online, but then today I found , which claims you can “save 40% on designer eyeglasses.” Their claim rings true, if the benchmark is the suggested retail price. I’m not gonna list all the brands, but they have Prada and Shuron, which are two of my favorite designer eyewear makers. .com
I’m a huge fan of the Shuron frames, such as the one shown on the far right. I haven’t seen a similar non-designer offering anywhere. This site is definitely the place for designer eyeglasses or sunglasses, which are available with or without a prescription. I found that most fully configured glasses with all the needed coatings (UV, anti-scratch, etc.) ranged between $130-$200. This is about the same as a non-designer pair at your local optometrist (maybe somewhat less) and about half off what you’d expect to pay for designer eyewear. If you’re looking for more typical low-cost glasses under $50, go with any of the other sites listed on the right column of the page.
