A good optical store offers large collection of frames for the glasses and they do keep sunglasses of renowned brands. For many, buying expensive sunglasses may not be possible so optical stores keep provision for the cheap sunglasses along with the designer sunglasses. To keep up with the competition in the market, any standard optical store must have different types of sunglasses, reading glasses, sports glasses for the customers.
