The Mirror in the UK posted an interesting article on Brit and opticians: The study came from Glasses Direct so it could be a marketing gambit to get Brits to purchase contact lenses online and if purchasing contact lenses online of course that is what they will say.

  • Up to 20million Britons avoid getting glasses or contact lenses because they believe opticians will rip them off.
  • It also found that 47% of adults put off buying new glasses or contacts because of the cost and 65% who do make the purchase say they feel ripped off.
