No, what you see is what you get. You may be able to straighten them up and reshape them but not lengthen them.

Looking at doing it to a pair of Persol 649s - the 52mm is by far the best size for the lens parts IMO - but the temples are only 135mm at that size.. Unfortunately no option to mix and match.

Careful now. A 135mm temple isn't necessarily short. Depending on where the actual temple starts, 135mm may be enough. It's like a medium Tshirt in different brands will fit differently. I would tell you to go to a B&M and see what they can do for you.

Sorry, this is what I meant by "lengthening".

Yep I have tried them on in B & M and definitely a bit too short. I'll ask around.

Do you guys know how to adjust (bending) plastic frame? My sunglasses is not snug so it slips in my nose. How to fix it?

Had a chance to play with a couple pairs of made in japan prodesign Denmark glasses. Gotta say they are really really nice in person! And for Asian, prodesign is a really good fit for Asian.

All plastic ProDesign frames are available with nose pads. Makes the fits much more comfortable.

Take it to your local optician. They will be able to help you adjust it without compromising your frames.

exactly! You know it all! I actually only started look into them when you suggested to me a while back. Now the glasses boutique that I go to started carrying them when I asked them to look into them. They told me they are selling ProDesign faster than they imagined. Works a wonder for Asian.

Where can I gind these specs in NYC. If I can get the brand/style number of this.

 

 

 

2) I am a total idiot when it comes to specs. I would love some recommendation and advice on what kind of specs I should be looking for or what kind of specs will look good on me.

 

These are my current frames on my new look

 

 

Thanks in advance...have a great weekend.

I need the following two things: 

1)Spectacles / Eye Glasses that look like prescription but with Zero Power - Bonus: Anti Glare for Computer usage

Goal: A frame design that makes me look more mature and older for INTERVIEWS and EARLY INTERACTIONS with Clients & New Teams.

Issue: (I look way young for my age and have a baby face)

- What kind of frame designs/ construction would suit this purpose? (Links & Pictures welcome) - Conservative & Mature is better. 

- Any particular kind of Zero Power lens/ you might recommend? 

2) Photo-chromatic Sunglasses (+Polarized?) for daily wear and weekend hanging out. The "Go To" daily pair (Maybe buy 1 and then a second). 

Goal: Air, wind and dust protection and clarity while driving or walking around 

- Please suggest brands and models? 

- My homework on this points to few that I found affordable and decently well built - 

e.g. - Ryders - Around 89/ 99 $ - Photochromatic and Polarized for Glare protection. 

- Found a few brands that support Photochromatic and Polarized on REI.com - Should I list them so you can rate/ review them? 

Thanks in advance. 

In terms of frames, there are tons of options so my advice would be to go to a brick and mortar store and try some on. Nobody can tell you what brand or style to try because everyone's face shapes are different.
As for plano lenses, do NOT get cheap ones. It will probably cause more discomfort than not wearing them. Not all lenses are created equally. If you're using it for extended computer use, look into the Zeiss Purecoat and the Nikon Seecoat Blue. Both reduce blue light to create more contrast and in turn make them more comfortable

For polarized/photochromatic lenses, again they are not created equally. Some have better clarity, more scratch resistance and better overall. if you want true bang for the buck for polarized lenses, try Polaroid Sunglasses. Launched by Safilo and great lenses for what you pay. They retail for under $120. Most "active lifestyle" brands have terrible quality lenses. Usually very thin, flimsy, distorted vision and soft. 1 good pair is better than several poor quality pairs.

 

 

Photo chromatic/ Photo chromic is a first priority. 

 

Polarized is a second. A bonus if in addition to Photo chromatic. 

 

I am looking all over here- http://www.polaroideyewear.com/ but unable to figure out which ones have both.

 

Any suggestions please?

 

I do not mind spending the 120$ instead of the 89/99 I had planned for Ryders (LINK: Photo chromic and Polar) + More + More, but I'd like to find models that have: 

 

- Photo chromatic

- Polarized 

- scratch/ break resistance

 

I don't know if Polaroid are photochromatic. They aren't as far as I'm aware of.

 

So can you please suggest a brand/ model that are photochromatic / photochromic. 


For photochromic and polarized, there aren't a whole lot of choices and they will retail for $300+. Anything less and they quality won't be good. One brand that sticks out for me would be Serengetti. I think Maui Jim has few pairs if I remember correctly, as well. I know Nike has some sporty "golf" sunglasses with a purple-ish lens that is transition branded but I can't recall if they are polarized. Occasionally, a random brand will have a model or two as well.

 

Is there any way to find place or sales for Serengetti or Maui Jim?
