I agree, but in the dental and medical area - including opthalmic opticians - it is also important to have some checks and balances in place to prevent the free market riding roughshod over vulnerable people. And those checks and balances, and professionalism, sometimes state-sponsored, often introduce cost. Some might say too much cost, but I would not wish do without protection when I am paying for essential aids such as glasses.

It is often amazing how few products could actually cost much less and still serve the same purpose or be equally useful. As in the case of glassesdirect, a lot of medical technologies could cost a lot less if only more people got ideas like Jamie Wells and, of course, the public realized there is little correlation between the quality and the price of a product in this brand driven market and marketing driven economy!!
