Expensive Branded Eyeglasses: Are They Really Worth It?


Apr. 16, 2022

Are expensive designer sunglasses worth their weight in gold? While higher priced shades are usually made of higher quality materials and tend to be more durable, even cheaper sunglasses can provide adequate protection from the sun. Should you pay more for your next pair of shades? Or can you get what you need for less money? JINGWEI wants to provide answers to these frequently asked questions that can help you determine the best choice for you.

Do designer sunglasses offer better UV protection? 

Not necessary. Sunglasses with proper UV protection are available everywhere, whether they come from designer brands or drugstores. 

When it comes to protecting your eyes from the sun's harmful UV rays, it's more important to look for the UV label than the price tag. As long as your intended shades offer 99% to 100% UV protection, they will protect your eyes and preserve your vision. 

There are many low-cost sunglasses that will adequately block the sun's rays, so if this is really your only concern, then a high-priced label is unnecessary.

JINGWEI uses high-quality lenses. We also customize lenses for specific needs. Whether it is indoors or outdoors, you can easily watch wonderful moments.

Do expensive sunglasses offer a better visual experience?

Expensive sunglasses may actually provide a better visual experience when made with higher quality lens materials and certain optional lens coatings. 

Keep in mind that both premium and low-cost tints offer proper UV protection and sometimes even polarization. But these additional coatings are not necessarily representative of the overall quality of the lenses. High-end sunglasses are often manufactured with these additional lens coatings in the lenses, which will help keep the lenses in good shape and resist surface wear and tear. They may also come with glass or polycarbonate lenses that can withstand years of daily wear. 

Expensive sunglasses are also more likely to be offered with prescription and/or photochromic lenses (options so you can walk into the sun with the clearest vision possible.

Does high price mean high quality frame materials? 

When you spend extra money on expensive sunglasses, that premium should be reflected in the quality of the frames. 

Because higher-priced sunglasses come with prescription lenses and additional lens coatings, the frames and hinges need to be flexible enough to be taken apart and reassembled. And they must be durable enough to safely accommodate potentially heavier prescription lenses. 

You'll also find that designer label and brand name sunglasses often offer more impact-resistant frame options, making them a safer choice for sports and performance sunglasses.

Do expensive sunglasses last longer? 

The lifespan of your sunglasses ultimately depends on how well you take care of them. Simply put, if you're not happy with your sunglasses, they probably won't last as long, regardless of the price. 

However, sunglasses made from high-quality materials are naturally better than cheaper models made from lower-quality materials. Therefore, you may be better off buying expensive sunglasses that you hope will last longer. 

However, if your glasses are really rough, stick with the cheaper shades that you don't mind replacing every time you damage another pair. JINGWEI has our own quality test steps, we make every effort to ensure product quality and beauty, and continue to improve.

Expensive or inexpensive sunglasses? 

If you want designer sunglasses with durable frame and lens materials that effectively shield you from UV rays and provide a comfortable fit in your preferred style, then they may be well worth the investment. 

Plus, if that designer or brand name means a lot to you, then go for it! They are your eyes and it is your wallet. However, if these fashionable shades are just a fancy logo, but with considerable sun protection, you may want to opt for more affordable sunglasses.
