In an article titled Finding Eyeglasses At Discount Prices, CBS News Healthwatch discusses the high markups that brick-and-mortar eyewear stores often place on eyeglasses and frames and recommends purchasing eyewear online at sites like FramesDirect.com.

The article says, “These retailers often offer affordable eye exams, but they make a killing on marked-up frames and unnecessary high-tech lens options.”

“You’d be far better off buying lenses online and foregoing all the bells and whistles. You now can find everything from designer eyewear to bargain basement frames on the Web, and they’ll cost you far less than you’d typically pay at a one-stop shop.”
