As a consumer you don’t stand a chance.
The eyeglass industry is consumed by Luxottica acting as a monopoly. This means consumers are overpaying for eyeglasses and have limited options for good quality products.
Luxottica’s control is pervasive. From manufacturing frames and lenses, to their retail presence, they are working to squeeze out the independent providers in an attempt to inflate the price of eyeglasses for the consumer.
“Luxottica bought everyone. They basically set whatever prices they like.”
