Check out Japonism frames. Hand-made in Japan and the most comfortable frames I've ever had.

I have a pair of Marc Jacobs that I got a few years ago, mainly wear contacts but it fits fine. I think your best bet is to try on in store or Warby Parker sends you frames to try on for free: http://www.warbyparker.com/Our-Story/pledge I don't have any but GQ recommended them a while back and its really cheap at $95. Edit - I am Asian with a typical Asian nose.

For Asian face we need to make sure that the lens height is not very large as the nose bridge is not very high the bottom of the rim tend to touch the cheeks... Avoid using large frames opt for smaller height frames.

Can plastic frames be heated/adjusted along the nose bridge and behind the ears?

Behind the ears, yes. On the nose, no. They can be "make-shift" adjusted but basically, no. You can get pad arms mounted to the frame if you so please but it will look lifted off your face.

I have a pair of Warby Parker's (Miles) after trying on 5 different pairs. The weird thing is when I tried them on, the particular model (Miles) felt fine, but my actual one I received with prescription sits low. I adjusted the back where it meets the ears and curved those. But, it still slips. I'm considering getting "the surgery done"

Warby Parker is a good brand though. If you have really bad eyes like me though, you'll need the special lenses which add $20 more, which isn't bad.

I just bought some plastic frames from TC Charton (website same name). They still slip a bit,but SO much better than anything I was able to get before. The frames are quite stylish a little pricey but worth it.

The "Miwako" frame is really nice.

If any of you guys live in the O.C., there's a wonderful place in Garden Grove called Nara Optometry (look up in yelp). They do a very nice modification where they attach nosepads to your existing glasses. It is very clean and professionally done--I've had compliments from all different optical stores like Lenscrafters, etc. when I go to get my glasses adjusted. You can't even tell from the outside they are really there and they sit almost flush with the stock bridge.

It costs $30 per glasses and the turnaround time is around 2-3 days depending on when you are available. Most of the people there speak both English and Korean, but if you need someone more fluent, Angie is really helpful.

I hope this helps!

Haha, you don't have "really bad eyes". When I submitted my order to Warby Parker they straight up told me that they couldn't fill my prescription.

Re: the Nara modification are the the pads suspended on wire arms?

Haha that is pretty bad Yes they are. I was really impressed. My local optometry store was commenting on where I got it done haha.
