Before buying them, are there similar alternatives?

I am looking for a clip on / or acetate + metal double bridge glasses

I've seen great Oliver Peoples but from collaborations no longer made.

Thanks in advance

Han is fine. Maybe look into illsteva

I've got those Han clip-ons and like them a lot.
They are currently being fitted with prescription lenses.
The Doc model has been my been my go-to pair of glasses the last few years.

CityConnection,

How did I do on my purchase in terms of price to quality/value?

Location: MyEyeDr (local B&M)
Vision: R - 2.75/-0.50/175, L -2.25/-0.50/180

1. Oliver Peoples Follies 1281 - $225 http://goo.gl/0Ju0nD
2. Polycarbonate single vision - $40 (I recognize that you don't like poly, but these were what the optometrist recommended to me...)
3. Crizal Alize (the best coating they can provide, sapphire was unavailable) - $68

TOTAL OTD: $333

Thanks!

Anything like the persol 3007v, but a little smaller depth/height wise? The width is fine, but it covers the very bottom of my eyebrows and just seems a little too tall. I like the shape otherwise.

Does anybody know the eyewear Willem Dafoe is wearing in the movie The Fault in our Stars?

Any updates to this FAQ?

5. What are some frames that have a good bang for the buck?

-As of Jan 2012, I feel that Kio Yamato, O&X, Urband, Cheap Monday, MODO, Spectacle Eyeworks, Prodesign and Lightec are all brands that provide good bang for the buck.

So I just got my glasses from *gasp* Lenscrafters. I bought them there because of my insurance policy but I probably didn't end up saving much overall. Each pair was like $400 each with the high index lenses, coating, roll and polish. I did stick to the Persol and Rayban as per city's recommendations.

My prescription was OD -650 -025 130 and OS -750 -025 055 SV Distance. I took the sales associate's suggestion for 1.67 index, AR, and roll and polish. She said I wouldn't gain that much more by going 1.74 over 1.67 with rolled edges and at the cost of 1.74 I didn't think twice. I was wondering if she was right though in recommending that I get smaller, rectangular, plastic frames in order to hide the lenses. I originally wanted to get one pair with large, round lenses and she said that even if my eyes were in the center, my lenses would be noticeably thick and look bad even with 1.74. She also recommended against wire frames so it seemed like my options were very limited. Would you agree with this sentiment? I guess I could still return my glasses if need be but that would be uncool so I probably won't. I can post pictures showing the thickness if that helps. Thanks.

Also, anyone have opinions on Dailies Total1? Worth the premium? I have dry eyes that usually get red after a day of wearing contacts.

Dita is actually very well made and is actually exclusive, they open very few accounts and it's hard to find. They are now very popular because so many celebrities wear Dita.

What's the word on Dita's quality, I'm thinking about purchasing two pair at full retail. Let me know what you think.
