    please excuse the slightly "quick and dirty" video, which I make while holding a phone and trying to demonstrate how this is put together. I think you will get the concept

    I am not familiar with Flair's rimless so I will search online. I appreciate the feedback a lot. I have heard that Europe is generally a better rimless market than most. I want the optician to be...

    thanks for pointing out avantek. That is a cool looking product, it seems as though it would be assembled by the lab, but perhaps an optician can process in house, I don't know. The system I have...

    What type of phoropter do you use? Where did you go to optometry school? Can you name a prof or 2 you liked? See, I have serious doubts that you are an OD - because anyone with a half-ounce of actual...

    Shoulda coulda woulda bought their shares years ago, instead I stuck myself with Canadian energy stocks and a largely blah canadian portfolio. Just because there is a huge megamonster in an industry...

    You do realize, with your continued references to the power of google and a web search, that a consumer can buy glasses easily for $6.95, right? Do you know that this is NOT an Essilux company...

    Thanks lensman, I appreciate the sentiment, I am simply asking an optometrist who thinks I can't read to actually READ the article which he or she presented to us with this thread. By read, and...

    If this article is ONLY about lenscrafters (as the main retail arm of essilux, and the pictured store) or at least about Essilux retail outlets - why is there a link for people to learn how to buy...

    Question for the group.

    "Yet those same frames and lenses might sell in the United States for $800."

    a direct quote from the farticle. Either the guy is referring to only Lenscrafters based in...

    Again , With Peace and Love. This article is about the ripoff eyeglass industry, it is NOT about Essilux. Essilux, being the beastly presence, is an easy target to point to for there being a...

    So. Have you reread the article you posted. It is about "ripoffs" in our industry, including, apparently, Warby Parker. He says frames are a few dollars and lenses are a couple of bucks. The fact...
