Eyeglass Shopping Shocker

When you think of reading glasses, progressives or any form of spectacle, you usually think of Lens Crafters or the eye glass counter at your local box store. Well I discovered an entirely new world of accessories... 

Oliver Peoples.....














The sunglasses...










Then there are the glasses created by Morgenthal Frederics...

Sunglasses....


Opticals......





You have to call to find out the cost of the frames, but you can rest assured that Oliver Peoples seems quite economical as compared to the Morgenthal glasses (oh and the cost is without the lenses you need to see too). Suffice it to say that a pair of Oliver Peoples glasses while expensive is honestly only slightly more expensive then many frames found at Lens Crafters...its truly the the cost of progressive lenses that are ridiculous. OK, yes the frames can be costly too, but really the price triples when you add in the lenses.

Meanwhile the Morgenthal glasses could add up to a semester in  college for just the frames. Seriously....I had never seen anything like it..who needs $1800 frames. I know people can do whatever they want with their money, but seriously, why would you need a pair of frames made from buffalo horns? I know it sounds rather uncapitalistic to say that but really people..really...

There are just somethings that do strike me as amazing....
