    I'm far past the point where I should have started wearing glasses. I clearly can't read things at a distance that most people have no problem with. (I blame staring at a computer screen day in day out for the past 8 years for this development)

    Question is - what type of frames do I get? What are you specky fella's wearing these days.

    I was looking at this site this week.
    http://www.eyeglasses.com/
    It's got great search features.

    I was hoping I could get these for prescription non-shades.

    plastic frames. glass lenses. you have to ask for glass lenses as they are scratch proof and are long lasting. try to get a frame where the inside is a soft colour. turtleshell if possible inside.

      I've worn the same frames for the last 18 years. same glass lenses.e_p2/3
      plastic lenses only last 1-2 years at best plus they aren't scratch proof.e_p3/3

    le sigh – these virtual frame try on rigs are depressing. They seem a really poor substitute for trying on specs. But these are all great sites for ideas..

    goto a flea market and find a good vintage frame. can be sunglasses. give frames to your optician and put in glass lenses.

    • < great advice. They can fit any frames with your prescription?CyBrainX1/2

    Warby Parker is officially awesome. Pick out 5 pairs online. They send them to you free. Instant gratification. I don't have to go out to try them on. Boom.

    Now i just need a Rx.

    Not many styles look good on my face but Pradas are the nicest by far:

    Also, if you get a thicker plastic frame, you can get away with not paying for the thinner lenses.

    • i like pradas, but their heavymoldero

    Imagine i should try a thin frame too - but I like the look of the bolder ones so I'll try that out first. Glamour shots of the winner.

    • top one with 2nd from bottom interiors.. black outside tortoise shell inside.. is what i wear.e_p1/7
      mine are 1951 Gucci, last year frames were hand made b4 being made in Japan machinede_p2/7
      get something that fits your face versus shape in a picture.e_p3/7
      That's the idea of trying a few out. If thick is no good I'll move to something a little more normal.jtb264/7
      thick?? but she likes it thick!!
      dont go thin!! chicks dig the thick!!

    "...I blame staring at a computer screen day in day out for the past 8 years for this development..."

    I've been staring at a computer screen 12-16 hours a day for 20 years and have not developed any vision problems. Genetics and nutrition are far more relevant than what you're using your eyes far. (Obviously barring direct abuse.)

    I had this very expensive, but very good glasses from Armani.
    The best I had so far in 27 years.
    Broke them to months ago, bought some 29€ glasses at Pearl because I wanted to continue using the same lenses, recent and very special indeed, and no others I liked would give that chance.
    Almost got some Raybans, not the hipster stuff...

    • offer that chance. sorry I just came from working in a Ricardo Villalobos concert...oey
