Last time I bought reading glasses I paid about £6 for two pairs off eBay!

in fairness I only use them for reading in bed to stop messing up the expensive ones.


I am not seduced by having trendy designer names on frames for willy waving competitions. :sisi1

I know the chap who has the Oakley concession in Cyprus, it is comical how little he pays for stock compared to what they sell for.

I can’t use those ones off the peg in places like fleabay or from the local newsagent. My eyes have very different prescriptions. It’s nothing to do with my todger; I can’t see close up with them, plain and simple.

I started wearing Oakley because I’ve been wearing their sunglasses for about 25 years and prefer the arms to traditional ones that hook around the ears. They work for me so I’ve stuck with. Yes, they’re ludicrously expensive when bought through some channels but if a bit of research is done, they’re quite reasonable.
