Counterfeit Education

As we are a premium brand, counterfeiters try to benefit from our popularity by fooling customers into purchasing fake products. Counterfeit lenses are illegal and may be harmful to your health.

A counterfeit product is one that is made of exact imitation of something valuable or important with the intent to deceive the consumer into believing it to be genuine.

Counterfeiting is illegal and damaging to our global economy by removing honest jobs, costing legitimate revenue by not paying taxes, and harming ethical business people. Counterfeiting is not a victimless crime. Consumers who believe they are purchasing genuine items are left with inferior items that cannot live up to their expectations.

Counterfeiters are not accountable to human rights and environmental regulations. Counterfeiters don’t adhere to child labor laws, anti-sweatshop laws, or restricted substances laws, putting both workers and the environment at risk. Fundamental human rights of workers employed by counterfeiters, such as basic safety and health precautions, are often compromised or entirely ignored creating a work environment that is safe for no one.
