Usually no. You must decide what you want first, obviously eye protection so look for 100% UVA/B protection (this will be slightly less if you are going for photochromic lenses). If you are into sports you might like to consider different coloured lenses, shatterproof lenses, polarised sunglasses etc. Then again, if you just want fashion, just check you have adequate UV protection. I personally have doubts that a pair you pay a fiver for may be suspect even if they say they do protect you. Designer sunglasses are usually a result of years of technological research and come with warranties. Check out some of the articles on the link below.

Totty Originally Answered: Why are books very expensive?
Hi: This is a very good question. I'm lucky to have quite a few writers as friends. Though they are well-known and appreciated, none of them make enough money from their writing to support themselves. Every year there are hundreds of thousands of books published, some with a very small readership because of the content (books about obscure topics that only a very few specialists read). These tend to be the most expensive because so few are sold yet the cost to produce one book is so high. The larger the run, the cheaper it is for it to be published. The largest publishers risk a lot of money when they publish a new author and even if the author is well-known, the book may be unpopular and sit unsold. Most books can be borrowed at a library so they are accessible to almost everyone who might be interested. Used bookstores, big bookstore chains, paperbacks and borrowing from friends can reduce the cost of the book but make it difficult for the writer, publisher and small bookstore owner to survive. Now with advances in computers, many people are self-publishing but again, think of how much a book would have to sell for if the writer spent more than a year researching, writing, editing and finally getting it out. Sort of makes you wonder why anyone would take the risk. You ask a very difficult question when you mention the number of people in the world who are starving and could be saved by the cost of one book. I'm sorry I can't do the question justice. One thing I do feel is that writers are frequently the ones who get the message of the plight of the poor out to their readership. They are the ones who have painted with words an in depth, thought provoking look into the human condition be it through non-fiction or fiction. The more we read about people different from ourselves, the more we learn and hopefully try to understand then ultimately do something about it. I guess now with the advent of something like 'Yahoo Answers' we can try through words to make a tiny, hopefully positive difference. Aren't we lucky that they don't charge us to provide such a wonderful service? Kindest regards, Shari

Where are you looking that books cost $90-200? The only time I've spent that kind of money on books was at college, and if that's the case with you, then the answer to your question is, "Because you need the books and they're greedy."

The Ultra violet protection is identical, but the standard from the contacts are not the same. The majority of the cheap ones have distortions within the contacts than cause head aches or strange discomfort after putting on them some time. If you've ever had a great pair of Rayban or Oakley you'd be aware of improvement in visual comfort in comparison towards the cheapies. Optical quality contacts create a massive difference. The main difference within the frame quality alone constitutes a large improvement in enhanced comfort and sturdiness. High quality ones are costly , yes...but worth it. It's such as the distinction between a Cadillac along with a dune buggy...

I guess it depends on what you're trying to protect your eyes from. The Sun = Probably Rocks = I'd say about the same level of protection Lasers = Probably shouldn't be using sunglasses to deflect lasers Glares from pretentious strangers = Probably should go with the expensive glasses

Nessa Originally Answered: Why is alcohol rehab so expensive?
Few pay for rehab out of pocket, they are able to charge obscene amounts of money because insurance or Medicaid usually foot the bill. They stay in business by spreading the myth that people NEED rehab and AA in order to quit. Over 90% of rehabs are AA (12step) based, the rest are almost all Narconon (Scientology based) or religion based. Here is a list of 48 types of alcoholism treatments, ranked by effectiveness: http://www.behaviortherapy.com/whatworks... Note that Twelve-step facilitation (rehabs) is in 37th place, AA 38th. AA has about a 5% success rate, the same as spontaneous remission, or quitting on ones own. "Another estimate is that at least 50% of alcoholics eventually free themselves although only 10% are ever treated. One recent study found that 80% of all alcoholics who recover for a year or more do so on their own, some after being unsuccessfully treated. When a group of these self-treated alcoholics was interviewed, 57% said they simply decided that alcohol was bad for them. Twenty-nine percent said health problems, frightening experiences, accidents, or blackouts persuaded them to quit. Others used such phrases as "Things were building up" or "I was sick and tired of it." Support from a husband or wife was important in sustaining the resolution." Treatment of Drug Abuse and Addiction — Part III, The Harvard Mental Health Letter, October 1995. The system we have is broken, not because of the huge cost of existing treatment, but because the type of treatment being offer boils down to faith healing. They teach people they are powerless to do anything about their drinking, that God will grant you a day by day reprieve if, and only if, you work their program properly. They also teach people that they are not responsible for their addiction, that they have a disease. I spent almost twenty years of one and off AA attendance, along with four rehabs, unsuccessfully. It wasn't until I took responsibility for my addiction that I could take responsibility for my recovery. Rehabs are little more than indoctrination centers for AA/NA. They even joke about it, saying that people spend thousands of dollars to find out they need free AA. They are staffed by people who major qualification is a year or more of sobriety through 12step treatment. Basically, they keep a person away from drugs and alcohol and keep them away from the people they used with and the places where they used for 30 days, while teaching AA dogma.Once a person is in AA, there is peer pressure to stay clean, but little else.
