My glasses have been serving for me for almost 2 years. Although I always took good care of them, they were scratched up after all, which not only appeared to be inelegant but also did harm to my eyesight. Therefore I made a decision to shop another pair for change. However, on entering an optical store which was bright, tidy and spacious in a big shopping mall, I knew, being an office clerk in a small company, I should not come there, because I definitely could not afford most of glasses displayed in the show window. As expected, after a quick glimpse around the shop, I could hardly find a pair that I thought I could afford.
I disappointedly left the store and pondered where should I go to buy a pair of cheap eyeglasses. Suddenly, it occurred to me that a colleague in office several days ago bought a pair of glasses which just cost him about $20. So I called him and asked where he got that cheap glasses and he replied that they were bought on the Internet. He told me that things online were much cheaper than those sold in malls and stores, especially eyeglasses. He told me the other day he just bought his new eyeglasses at http://www.Firmoo.com . And he also said that it was not necessary to shell out big bucks, nor was it necessary to economize them when they came to eyesight. Most glasses were marked up by 300% or more, for that materials for both frames and lenses were almost plastics and resins which were fairly cheap in cost. In addition, most frames and lenses were molded or stamped in mass production. That is to say the mark-up on frames and lenses in chain optical shops and optical boutiques is often several hundred times of the actual cost of materials.
Knowing that, I went home, opened the computer and login that website where kinds of glasses were displayed. They were all in low price. And there were even discount designers, such as Gucci, Chanel, Dior and so on. In a word, everything expected to find were provided there. I was overjoyed. After a careful selection, I ordered a pair of glasses with silver titanium frames. Some days later I were called to receive my parcel. Unexpectedly they were as beautiful as I saw on the Internet, or more beautiful. I felt very satisfied.
NMI research reveals almost a quarter of consumers (24 percent) are concerned “a lot” about preventing eye health or vision problems. Perhaps surprisingly, consumers’ concern with preventing vision and eye health problems is as high as their concern over preventing high cholesterol (26 percent) and arthritis and joint disease (25 percent). Concern over eye health increases dramatically, to more than two-thirds, when those concerned “a lot” are combined with consumers who are even “a little” concerned about preventing eye health issues (68 percent). Loss of vision also resides among the top 10 biggest health-related fears of aging, more so than fear of heart disease or even dying.
