Description

The producer went undercover with a simple prescription for bifocals and seven pairs of identical frames. She went to seven of the top optical chains in New York to see how many of them would pass the industry's own standards for making eyeglasses accurately. All seven failed the industry standards for power, strength and overall workmanship. Three out of the seven did not add the Ultra Violet protection requested and paid for. Also, prices ranged from $52 to $174 for the same glasses.
