SmartBuyGlasses reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to make improvements to, or correct any errors or omissions in any portion of the content and to make any other changes to the Site, materials, tools, products, services and prices displayed or described on the Site at any time, without notice.

Recommended Retail Price
The RRP is the sale price suggested by the distributor of the branded eyewear. The Recommended Retail Price (RRP) is not mandatory, although manufacturers and distributors may suggest that retail outlets maintain a price within the range of their suggestion. Whereas our online prices are very competitive within the eyewear industry, we cannot guarantee that this RRP is always higher or lower than the prices in a retail store. In addition, due to the fact the top branded eyewear worldwide is made in Italy, the RRP is also based on a Euro exchange rate within the Countries our websites are featured. Exchange rates are updated to our websites on a periodic basis and we cannot guarantee its accuracy on a daily basis either.
We encourage customers to compare prices via comparative price shopping engines online and through various other means in order to find the best deal. RRP is not the same as 'street price' - Street Price can be broadly defined as the price at which the item actually sells in the free market. Visiondirect.com.au is committed to providing the very best prices and unbeatable value to its customers. We welcome feedback and notice of price rollbacks in the market.
