    Expensive eyewear?

    Saw an add on "CBS This Morning" today from Zenni.com (nicely done, I hate to say). Closing shot shows prescription eyeglasses from $6.95. Doesn't sound overly expensive to me.

    Not a rumor is that they have consolidated their sales force in the U.S. Hoya reps out, Seiko reps in. Sounds like much more than a licensing agreement to me.
