Need Rudy Project Sports Prescription but having problems finding it?
If your optometrist is either Specsavers or OPSM, or other selected regional optometrist's, you may experience difficulty obtaining Rudy Project sports prescription eyewear.
In Australia, like many other countries around the world, the optical market is dominated by the Luxottica Group operators of Sunglass Hut and OPSM retailers and many others. This can make obtaining Rudy Project Sports Prescription difficult and in many cases... impossible! These optical retailers never purchase Rudy Project products to offer on range, preferring to support their own in-house brands and not providing their customers with the opportunity to select Rudy Project. We think this is very sad particularly as we know Rudy Project has the best sports prescription program in the world with multiple frame and lens options to suit all sports performance and fitting needs. Specsavers is another Goliath chain of stores that dominate the Australian Optical business. Just like the OPSM business, there is no way they will support Rudy Project.
In saying this both Specsavers and Luxottica owned retail stores offer great service and products including eye testing and will continue to in the future.
So what does a consumer do when they go to one of these optical chain retailers or country optometrists and enquire about Rudy Project? Generally they will receive a negative response and my be told they are not stocked and not able to offer the Rudy Project brand. Customers will generally accept the advice of the optometrist and will be steered towards another brand which may or may not be the best option to meet their sporting needs. We have seen some cases where the customer even walks out with non sporting sunglasses.
