Prescription frames - luxury brands

Hello, just wondering, is it any cheaper to buy luxury brand prescription frames eg. Bulgari, Christian Dior etc? I normally pay out of pocket $550 au dollars after my private health insurance rebate. I have found in Malaysia there is not much difference in price for luxury brands, so is it similar in China?

Luxury brands are usually more expensive in China due to high taxes.

hi,mlogan,Bulgari exclusive shop in Beijing sell the handbag,wristwatch etc. except frames

.You can go to the big glass emporium,like Baodaoyangjing (宝岛眼镜)。There are 6 layers in all.It contains all kinds of glasses and frames.

Add:Northeast corner of Jinsong bridge(劲松桥), East Third Ring south Road,chaoyang district.

Subway:Line 10,get off at station of "jinsong(劲松)”,exit "Northeast(东北口)",

walk 90 meters toward north.

You can find the frames of Bulgari at 5 and 6 layers.

The price almost 3000-4000 RMB.

One general rule for these kind of items: it is probably more expensive, and if not it is probably fake.

Sometimes you might get lucky when older models are on sale. But you will find that also back home.
