  • Well on a positive note::::I work for LensCrafters for over 6 years and most of our customers pay with insurance and average coverage on frames IN NETWORK with lenscrafters is about 300..and sometimes unlimited frame allowance. so looking at it from that point you want your product to match what the insurance is paying...

  • Guys this is how all businesses work. The real cost price is a fraction of the selling price. Consider iPhones, designer bags, clothes, software services etc.

  • You come to my country INDIA. You can buy top brand glasses for 20 dollars.

  • If they are so dam good why do you find lousy frames at LensCrafters. I won't go to LensCrafters because the frames are cheap looking and the selection is always at a minimum. Now I know why. Taking advantage of people in need of a very important health item.

  • Luxottica indeed has monopolized the eyewear industry, owns all the copyrights for all the major fashion brands in the world, I used to work in a local eyewear distributor that dealt with Luxottica but they immediately came & took over when the copyrights license of the distributor I used to work with ended and Luxottica laid off each and every one of us & nobody knows it. Just another mean, arrogant, lame, inhumane corporate company that just thinks highly of themselves.
