The Conspiracy Behind Your Glasses – Adam Ruins Everything
Meet the Walmart of eye glasses. Did you know that a single company controls 80% of all glasses and sunglasses brands?
In Adam Ruins Everything, host Adam Conover employs a combination of comedy, history and science to dispel widespread misconceptions about everything we take for granted. A blend of entertainment and enlightenment, Adam Ruins Everything is like that friend who knows a little bit too much about everything and is going to tell you about it… whether you like it or not.
Editor’s note: As someone who is severely nearsighted, I always wondered why my glasses were at least $440 (not including eye exams or even frames). That’s the lowest price I could pay if I got discount frames at $15 at an online outlet. (Severe nearsightedness nearly always kicks you out of Lasik eye surgery candidacy.)
Unfortunately, aside from healing your eyesight there isn’t much one can do since the glasses industry is more monopolized than Walmart is to the grocery stores!
