21. one thing to keep in mind about the cost is..
there is a lot of expensive equipment being used to make and cut the lenses. were i used to work our old out of date lens cutter was said to have cost around 30,000 dollars and that is just one peice of equipment.

sure they are in the business of making money, but at the same time i don't see it to be that much different than many other retail products. alot goes into making lenses and making them right.
