You hear that Nike, Gant, Converse All Star, Prada, Armani, Geoffrey Beene, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, and all you other eyeglass frame makers who think it's cool to plaster your company name & logo all over eyeglass frames.
People who wear glasses just want to see. We are not interested in becoming a billboard to advertise or flaunt your company name everyday.
I'm a little raw in the nerves of late. The husband is getting new prescription glasses. We want function, comfort & a little style. I feel like we've been through the wringer. Have sympathy for me. I have been to Eye Mart, Wal Mart, Costco. Went through the drill of each different wall of frames, and the rampant practice of what I consider to be a kind of bait & switch.
They have low low prices..... UNLESS you are in my family.
Our astigmatism prescriptions are super special, or should I say $uper $pecial?
We use progressive bifocals, strong prescription requires the switch to the poly carb (lighter lens). The next thing you know they are adding anti reflective coating, transitions lenses, and the price goes plus plus.
All those places that claim to be able to have lenses done in about an hour?
We are more in the 2 to 3 week group.
He tries on 50 different frames in each of these different stores, & we have fun..... humming the Star Trek theme if they look Jordy like. Giving the *wrong* buzzer noise if they just flat out suck.
Of if they are decent, put them in the potential stack.
Gun metal grey & silver are out for a person w blonde hair.
Why in God's name do they still have 70's style aviator frames???
But we finally hit a few that were decent.... only to find they were slathered with some brand name.
My head is not your billboard, dammit!
