How to Identify an Authentic Designer Eyeglasses

Designer eyeglasses such as Armani glasses have become popular among millions of people around the world. Unfortunately there are many fake eyeglasses that are being sold in the market.

If you are worried about the authenticity of your pair of eyeglasses. It is important that you employ a number of methods to check their genuineness.

How to identify an original from fake eyeglasses?
  1. Check the eyeglasses component. If there are plastic screws or hinges, the eyeglasses are most likely fake. Designer eyeglasses should have a solid construction and quality strong components.
  2. Original eyeglasses should come with a warranty document or warranty registration booklet.
  3. Look at the description of the eyeglasses. Does it state the brand name or does it say Inspired by brand name? Inspired simply means fake. Also, look for misspellings and unusual graphics.
  4. Most designers will come with a product information sheet or small card. There should be a company's contact information if one has any question about the eyeglasses.
  5. If you are purchasing the eyeglasses online, compare the seller's pictures of the eyeglasses with those of the eyeglasses on the manufacturer's website. Look at such details as the location of the logo, frame colour and that of the lenses.
  6. In Kenya, most eyeglasses cost between $ 33 and 40 or more. If you find a really cheap pair, especially one that claims to be designer, you may want to reconsider the purchase as they are most likely fake.
  7. You should also look at the package holding the eyeglasses. Check for a barcode, model name, lens and frame description. The box should have the designer's logo on it. 

Note: A Universal Product Code or a UPC is the barcode and the number series located on every retail product. If you receive a package without a barcode sticker, it is an indication that you have purchase a fake. The barcode may also be on the packaging. When ordering eyeglasses, make sure it is being sent in its original wrapping.

The best thing to do is to check the authenticity of the product yourself before you make a purchase.


  1. I really like this post! Everyone has that question of whether or not they've bought un-authentic shades especially in this dot com shopping age.

How farmers can double their bean yield production

"As Jack slept, the beans germinated in the soil, and by morning a big beanstalk grew in their place. When Jack saw the great beanstalk, he immediately decided to climb..." This is a classic scenario of 'Jack and the Beanstalk' fairy tale. The same is true for Kenya's bean variety that climbs and spreads on sticks producing double the yield of local varieties.

Due to subdivision of land in Kenya, farmers are not able to produce enough beans to feed the 38.6 million people living in Kenya.This is mainly due to shrinking land sizes. This is the reason why high yielding varieties of beans that only need a small area to grow has been developed. These new varieties of beans require support with stakes (sticks) to climb on when they are growing.

He recommends taking a glass in the morning and in the evening for preventive measures. 
He cautions on their medicinal uses which should be considered as neither preparation methods nor dosage prescription are provided. This is a topic that would require much more time and I have decided to leave it for part two of this article.
