Authentic Or Fake Designer Glasses?

So we’ve all come across places offering “massive savings for designer goods” whether it be a market stall, a street vendor, a high street shop or an online retailer, you’re highly likely to be buying fake goods. What’s wrong with buying a pair of good-looking Designer Glasses for a more “affordable price?” They’re fake, but so what? Well let’s take a look…

Dangerously Poor Quality

It’s going to be a given that the quality of fake glasses will be nowhere, and I mean nowhere, near that of the original…but they look the same so surely they must be made the same? Erm, I’m afraid not and I’m sorry to say also, it’s more than just being poor, some are dangerously poor. For instance, the frames may be weak and could break easily. Do you really want to be left with dangerously sharp shards of plastic near your eyes? And then there’s the lenses, the lenses may not be shatterproof, which could put your eyes in danger if you’re unlucky enough to suffer an accident.

No UV Protection

Fake sunglasses often state that they offer complete UV protection, of course they would they want to make the sale…but in reality they lack much, or indeed any, UV protection. No UV protection puts your eyes at risk from harmful UV ray exposure. In those cases, fake sunglasses fail in the primary purpose you wanted them for, for protecting your eyes against the suns harmful rays. If they fail to do that as sunglasses, why buy them?

Poor Quality Lenses

The quality of the lenses in fake glasses is often very poor, they may not be made from quality materials, indeed they may not even meet the standards required by law and can be quite distorted and provide poor visual acuity which can cause headaches, dizziness and visual disturbances. Why would you put yourself through this to save a few pounds?

Too Fragile To Last

Since the quality is cheap they simply do not last as long as real Designer Glasses. They scratch, bend and fall apart far quicker than the real thing and you may find yourself spending more to purchase several replacement pairs than you would have to buy one pair of authentic frames. Cheap fake frames can be a false economy…


So when you take all of the above into account there’s a clear warning against buying fake designer glasses. Sure, you may think you’re getting a good deal, they may look damn near the same of the originals, but in actuality it’s a false economy and you could in fact be doing yourself some real damage by putting your precious eyes at risk of harm.
