    They can monopolize the industry because in a time where small shops and big shops go under due to internet sales, they own an industry that depends on you going and trying them on to see if the product fits you. That's how they have the "headlock" on the market. They learned that early on and capitalized on it heavily and aren't willing to release their grip. Not agreeable but quite brilliant.

    LoL you guys did not know this. All of them, I were Gucci and I saw the same pair at walmart only no Gucci sign or anything. They own them all.. There are a few companies they don't own. Also if you want a good pair get older frames new, Look at were they are made also. 2014 and down..

    That's why companies like Zenni Optical are thriving, selling glasses for exceptionally LESS money. No they don't offer name brands. But if name brands are NOT important to you, then check them out. I have been using Zenni Optical for years for my family's glasses and they are good quality nice looking stylish glasses. You can find glasses including frames and prescription lenses starting at around $10. Even their most expensive do not come anywhere near the prices charged at eyeglass retailers for designer brands that often are no better quality. Yes, Zenni sources their eyeglasses from China and it takes several weeks to get your glasses in the mail, but they stand behind the product. They are worth checking out! Just look up Zenni Optical online

    This makes me even happier that my Maui Jim sunglasses aren't owned or made by Luxottica. I get the CEO's position; he's running a business, and the bigger the profit margin the better for him. I'd rather not support a company that's swallowing up all the little guys though.

    Big scam, I spend over £600 on my spectacles, the frames I choose are 'cheap ' and then the lenses are thinned down transition designed for astigmatism and far sightedness, very costly, Costco isn't cheap as the Americans suggest, well here Costco in the UK aren't. Vision Express are more or less more budget orientated than their rivals. At least the eye test is free.

Anyway there are mamy online retailers who sell very good products for fraction of what you pay at......well....therr are isssues that places like Sunglass Hut is operated by your neighborhood like a franchise.....hmmmm I believe in Laser eye surgery. I got em done did me wonders thru allergy seasons when I couldn't wear contacts. Here is a suggestion. You can get your eyes fixed + have your skin cleared thru laser + remove your sagging eye sacls below your eyes for less than 3k dollars in South Korea. The decision I ever made.

    All of these brands say copyrighted by the Luxottica group on the bottom of their websites. 30 seconds of looking. Rayban, Oakley, these are brands that fall under a larger parent brand. Proctor and Gamble does the same thing, Tide, Gain, Downy, and Febreze are all Procter and Gamble products. Different brands under a parent brand. It's not deceiving it's common practice in capitalism. If you don't want to buy this stuff thats ok! No one is forcing you to. Go to other companies like Warby Parker. Do some research, make an informed purchase.

    There is nothing wrong with them owning so many brands. For example Sony manufacturing majority of camera sensors, you still have a choice what camera to buy. They get specs and they deliver. Entire 60 minutes missing a point here
