@eeterrific I mean it’s not uncommon for people to wear glasses with clear lenses as a fashion accessory. You can get them in different colors, and the different shapes can accentuate your face, like wearing a hat.
@username you can bring frames to most opticians and have them put lenses in. Check out vision shops like those in Costco, Target, etc. There are online options, but local places will be able to properly adjust them for you.
@t0nyc0tt4m@username I have tried to get Costco to put lenses in my previous Costco frames, and they came up with an excuse not to do each one. “There’s a chip in the paint, you’d blame us.” “This hinge is flaky” (it was) “This weld is loose” (it wasn’t).
@username@whogots news to me that costco just won’t do it anymore. It used to be that they would just tell you they are not responsible for damage. In my opinion, you are still better off finding a local shop that will put the lenses in.
@craigthom It’s a bummer that they’ve devoured most of the landscape. I have a few pairs of Oakleys from pre-Luxottica and a pair from after. My impression is that that fanatical attention to quality/durability has disappeared.
I’ve still got a pair of original Juliets, had to send them in a couple times for a “tune up” due to wear on the rubber flex points. Last go round (post Luxottica) they charged me something in the neighborhood of $75 for the service. Not a bad deal, but previously it was a gratis service.
@norman8 if you have to ask what other people do then these aren’t for you. These are for people who do their own thing. These are for people who have no idea Ray-Ban went out of style in 1994. These are for people like me.
@norman8 yes. As someone who wears glasses to see, I don’t understand it. Especially when people considered it nerdy to wear glasses. Now they commonly wear the styles that nerds would wear.

According to the remake of 21 Jump Street it’s cool to nerdy/geeky now, so…
You’re marketing these wrong; they should be advertised as “frames for contact lens wearers” …
“Happy with your contacts but tired of not having to deal with the hassles of glasses? Wear these and your problems will be solved!”
Not Eye Said The Blind Man! Okay,…I’m not blind! I’m buying a pair in hopes that I can get the VA to slap some script lens in those babies! I would like my American Vet 5% discount, so just, please, send me a code , or whatever!!
