post #2491 of 2724

Hi I am having trouble identifying these OP Zukos.

 

I am unclear of their authenticity and if they are fake or not.

 

Can anyone tell? There are many pictures provided.

Here are my own (for TV only), FRED OF PARIS "S.Lucie" platinum plated rimless glasses, set at each temple with a pretty large rosé cut real diamond!

Next eye test: next Monday, but I feel my eyesight has improved over the last 4 years and that I'll be told I don't need to wear them at all!mad.gif

No, they are hard to get hold off and Definitely Not for kopping off me!

I'm deciding between a $600 pair (lenses included) of Kio Yamatos OXs and whether or not to try Warby Parker which are priced at around $100. I know I would have to try the Warby Parker's on in person through online delivery and then send them back, etc. But in general if I find a style I like from Warby, are Kios worth 6x the price? Also most of the price of the Kios are the lenses, are lenses the same wherever I get them?

It is not that simple.  I agree Warby Parker glasses are somewhat over rated.  And they claim poly lenses are something special which they are not.  But many people cannot afford to spend $500 on a pair of glasses.  Further, someone who has a week prescription (say a -.50), no astigmatism, average size face with a 62PD, chances are Warby Parkers with their poly lenses will be just fine.

So the stronger your prescription, the more you should consider shelling out for lenses? I know that high index by default costs more.

How do Warby frames compare to lower end Luxottica frames (e.g. Ray Bans)?

Yeah but, how big can the difference in quality be between plastic frames? I have Gucci (Safilo) sunglass frames and my previous optical frames were Prada (Luxottica). I don't notice any major difference in quality between the frames, even though the designer frames were at least twice the price of Warbys.

I also have pradas and the quality is much better then the warbys...idk they just feel cheap and one pair will be enough for me.

Ended up getting a pair of Kio Yamato O.X. OP-154s with Crizal lenses instead of Warby Parker's, very happy with fit and quality.

Do you have more precise reasoning than that or is it just your gut feeling?
