Eyeglasses! Why are they so expensive? I have been wearing eyeglasses for a majority of my life. Low and behold like most people I have been paying too much for my glasses.  I’m an online shopper. I like to shop online mainly because I can compare prices, do research, and make an educated decision without leaving home. It’s time for my annual eye exam.  While shopping for frames online I found some information that everyone who wears glasses prescription or not should know. I have been paying too much for glasses. Have you?
