@melonscoop yes, exactly. When you buy glasses you buy frames and lenses and then they cut/grind the lenses to fit in the frames. So you’re just buying the frames one place and bringing them to get lenses. It shouldn’t be a big deal, although I’ve never done it like that.
@melonscoop Wasn’t there a pretty good list of options the last time this happened? The lens-only places were still lots more expensive than buying a frame and lenses at Zenni Optical, but some folks thought it was a good deal.
Besides being for people who want to get prescription lenses or sunglass lenses in them, they could be great for Halloween costumes or just to appear smarter as well.
Maybe too masculine to be a good pair of bukkake, erm, safety goggles. If you’re in that industry, though, you probably already have a line on glasses. I bet you are either really good at cleaning glasses or you go through quite a few pairs.
@Aschdrw when I worked at a pizza place several years ago one of the women had a pair of glasses and there was some little red logo or something in the corner of one of the lenses. Couldn’t figure out what it was, until one day she set them down on the counter for a bit and I was able to get a good look.
They said “display only”
So yeah, some people will steal the display pair from a store just to wear glasses.
I can see clear now the glare is gone
I can see the spectacles on my face
Gone are my normal eyes that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright)
Bright (bright) sunshiny day
How about a fun (fun)
Fun (fun) mediocritee
Let’s hear it for one of the founding members of the 1990s’ girl power supergroup. She was cut just before they took off, but Scary, Sporty, Posh, Sexy and Sneezy all fondly remember their time doing the zig-a-zig-ahh with their old friend
I use a site called usemyframe.com.
I love it, and can’t recommend it enough! I’m an eBay seller, and come across a lot of cool frames that I send in to get my prescription put in.
There’s a lot of sites like these, so I’m pretty sure that’s what most people are using these for.
This is RayBan close out from last year. You can take these to a national retail eye glass place and pay 29 bucks for cr39 plastics uncoated lens. Be careful, they might try to charge you a pattern fee.
After waiting all day, I decided to take a chance on the $20 to see how this goes. I’m going to try to get one of the lens places to do the magic on them and see how it goes. (so far that online eBay guy, and Costco, seem like the best chances for me, but I’ve never done the “please put lenses in my frame” thing.) I’m not sure; I’m afraid either it won’t work or they’ll charge me way too much, make me feel like a turkey… My order number:
@pmarin Good luck! Please report back, I decided these lenses are a little too short for my progressive prescription. Currently I have pretty big lenses (about 50mm tall) but I like having the real estate to handle far, mid, and close-up focusing. I am interested though because I might want to switch things up.
