I don't know about less expensive glasses - mine work out to about 300$ also with glare-free lenses. The reason I'm willing to pay that is that I get excellent service from the optician I go to and I like supporting small, local businesses. They have given me loads of free contact samples and are very fair about replacing / repairing contacts and glasses parts at no cost when it's a poduct problem. I had once badly scratched one of my new lenses ( totaaly my fault) and they replaced it free of charge - my cost would have been 75$.

I have been through several pairs of glasses and last year bought my first rimless, titanium pair. I have had to replace the frame twice (it was under warranty) because the arm broke off and the nose piece got all bent out of shape. I would keep buying them because I hate the way I look in glasses and these ones are the least noticeable ones - however I cannot recommend them for durability.
