Optics Planet Eyewear CollectionLately, I receive a lot of questions about the prices for eyewear collection. People are asking why our prices are lower than other online companies and if that means that our glasses are not authentic. I just want to assure you that absolutely all of our sunglasses and eyeglasses are 100% authentic and come directly from the manufacturer.
