Designer Eyeglasses - Discount Eyeglasses

Designer Eyeglasses or Discount Eyeglasses

Is Designer Eyewear a must have for
you. Or are you looking for
Discount Eyewear?
Some people are hung up on designer
name Brands, and some are always
looking for a Bargain,
which one are you?

In this article we are going to compare designer eyeglasses to discount eyeglasses.
Please, do not misunderstand; my intent is not to knock those that
are into name brands, If that is what you are into,and you can
afford it, then more power to you!
There are plenty of expensive brand names out there,
But I just want to let you know that for those bargain hunters,
you can have a Designer look at a discount price!

In the Eyewear industry, which I have been a part of for the
last almost 20 years, There have been a lot of changes.
Use to be, in order to get a certain style or look you had to buy
a certain brand.
Frame manufacturers use to have more of a signature style or look
to there products. But now every body is copying one another and
coming out with multi lines and look a likes,
and their version of a hot selling style.
In other words, they are all starting to look alike!

But that has turned out to be good for John Q. Consumer.
With the competition for sales, you don’t have to spend an arm &
leg for a nice pair of popular looking frames any more like we once had to.

Here are a few examples:
I am sure if you wear glasses you have heard of the Bend me Shape me Frames.
Or as some call them flex frame, flexon frame, flexon eyeglass frame, flexon eyewear,
flexon eye glasses, flexible eye glasses, flexible eyewear, flexible frame.
What ever you call them they are usually pretty expensive!
The first company to make them was Marchon Eyewear.
But now you can get some good quality generic brands of flexible
eyewear at A huge discount price,
(at least I sell them at a discount)

The pair on top is a Marchon Flexon 424 that usually sells for $225.00 at your local Dr.’s office, I have seen it online for as low as $150.00, but the pair on the bottom is a generic
Flex frame that I sell for $89.00 all day long! And it is not junk, it is a good solid frame.
I would think your local shops would have it at a good price too.
Here is a Marchon Flexon 429 on top that retails for $240.00, the bottom frame I sell for $89.00! Other than the color, can you see any big difference in the style?
On the top that is a Calvin Klein 771 that retails for $190.00 to $220.00
The bottom pair is a generic look a like I sell for $65.00

I could go on & on with example after example, but you get the point.
If you see a frame you like but you don’t want to pay that designer price, shop around and you might just find the same or very similar style in another brand for much less.
BUT, you have to be careful, because some of the look a like’s are Junk,
They are a good price but not good quality, and some times to the untrained eye
You can’t tell the difference between Good generics & junk.
That is why it is important to go to an eyewear shop or Dr.’s office you have faith in.
Tell your optician your not interested in designer names, but Good quality at a good price.

As always…hope this has been helpful

See’ya next time

  1. CAN YOU HELP ME?? ... need eyeglass frame advice!


    Where can I get large eyeglass frames?

    I wanted to conform. I tried the current (ugly) fashion craze, and bought a pair of small frames. But because of the reduced frame size, the lenses sit so close to my eyes that my eyelashes continuously brush against the inside of the lenses. I could stand to wear them only for one day. Now they sit in a drawer, and I am wearing my old large pair, which I repaired with epoxy. Unfortunately I see the epoxy is now beginning to crack.

    Please can I get a link to a seller of large style frames? Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated.

    Please email me at (remove SPAMLESS).


  2. I used to have some of the flex frame glasses. When I was in high school because of sports. Let me tell you they are the greatest. They never broke I would always show my friend how i could bend them without them breaking was great. If you live active life or are a clutz I strongly recommend these frames.

  4. This is a great article. I also really need the flex titanium frames. The regular frames never lasted with me but the flex frames were pretty expensive locally. I ended up buying 2 pair of the flex titanium frames with lenses for $100 with lenses from . I cant believe how much the local eyeglass stores wanted for the same frames compared to them. I will only order from them from now on, definitely give them a shot.

    This is indeed a great offer for eyeglasses, but I still prefer my pinhole glasses.
