The growing problem of counterfeit eyewear is a significant one, raising serious concerns about public safety as well as harm to brands. For example, counterfeit lenses are not typically shatterproof, which can cause serious eye and facial injuries in the case of an accident. Additionally, counterfeit eyewear frequently possess distorted or deformed lenses which can cause dizziness and visual disturbances, which can lead to accidents.
In addition, counterfeit sunglasses will typically not have sufficient UV protection, regardless of how they are advertised by the unscrupulous merchant. These failures will undoubtedly put countless consumers, as well as brand owners, at risk.
