Where Can I Buy Good Sunglasses

Post by Doc67 » Sat Jan 19, 2019 9:23 am

I know this is very lazy... but my last question about plant fertiliser produced such good results I am further testing the wisdom of the crowd...

I want a pair of good quality UV protection sunglasses and Polarized. I don't want any over priced designer brands. I've also no idea what these will costs so any advice on this aspect is also welcome.

I have a long history of losing, dropping and sitting on high priced brands and that has become very annoying. Also designer brands encourage people to borrow them on a long term basis.

I assume Aeon Mall is the prime candidate but if anyone knows a good outlet nearer me (172/Norodom area) then please let me know.

As always, many thanks in advance.....

May I suggest you only go out at night after the sun has got down and you could save a shit load of dollars.

Your many thanks in advance has been accepted.

decathlon has some for few $$$. I would never buy cheap Chinese glasses anywhere but Decathlon would not take the risk to sell dangerous glasses, so I trust them.

I am offended by this unhelpful comment. There is no place on the internet for such levity.

How did this make it out of mod preview?

You're lucky I'm not in charge of babysitting your posts, I would relish that power.... I would mod-preview you into submission.

I would put an end to this snarky misanthrope

I would tame the notorious Cam Nivag....he'd end up under my thumb, docile.

Strictly relegated to churning out '7 Reasons' pieces and utilizing his Westlaw access in order to illuminate the tragic back stories of degenerate Americans who have had the misfortune of gracing the digital pages of local news outlets for various acts of social disorder.

A final end to the dismal tide of pictures of half-dressed octogenarian men.

Should I dare contemplate such lofty a dream?

I go to Central Market. The only place I've been able to find my favorite Tortoise Shell Wayfarer Ray-Ban's, polarized and all that jazz.

Just like my idol: that war hero, renowned statesman and notorious sex-machine - JFK

Okay, get ready for the first useful reply. Eyecare on the corner of 130 and Norodom have a good range of quality sunglasses. I bought a pair of Polar brand there a while back, polarized/UV etc, maybe $50. The same would cost just a bit more in the west, while true luxury brands cost a bit more here. If you look into it nearly all the prescription and sunglasses worldwide are actually made by the same company. It is worth getting a decent pair with good protection, the sun here will destroy your eyes if you aren't careful.

But how would you know you were not buying a fake Chinese pair worth 5 $ ?
