Thx guys! I think I’ll keep the Polo for now.
I also chekedLasca, Moscow and Garrettnout. Lasca was in French amd hard to navigate on my iPad, Moscot was maybe a bit too old looking though it had the blessing to have some presence in my country, I liked Garrett quite a bit for what I saw. Is there asite where to find these brand discounted? Do they have sale events like black friday or something on those lines? I think that I’ll buy some, but a discount would be great. I also liked that Garrett offer Clíp one on the same style, that brings down the cost of havingto have a prescription sunglass.
in another thread someone recommended my Persol a time ago. Specially because, he said, they have some flexible parts. That appeals to me because Mimi squally impaired to I bang my head onto things from time to time and flexible frames do not break and are not deform through pressure. Also, I found some Persol in Chile, which simplifies things.
I’ll post a second post with pics of me wearing all the glasses I can find, so you can advice me on which size would work best for my face.
thanks again.

Edit. What do you think of this brand? https://latam.karuneyewear.com/
It’s a Chilean brand that launched internationally not long ago. They make all their frames with recicled materials (plastic and legal) from Patagonia.

How easy or hard would it be to get prescription lenses for this pair of Effector eyeglasses? Any tips/recommendations?

I need to buy new eyeglasses. I am thinking of purchasing a black rectangular acetate frame. Usually I just go to a shop and choose something there.. but this time I thought of having a look at different brands before.

I am leaning towards purchasing Moscot, as they have a wide variety of frames with a classical look. I think some of the glasses below may be Moscot but I had a look at Moscot's website and could not really identify the specific models.. it's hard to identify glasses. Are 2 and 3 Moscot eyeglasses?

Could anyone identify which specific model of eyeglasses are these, or at least the brand?:

I’ve got Moscot Hyman which look a lot like number two but of my four Moscots aside from diamond hinge pins on the Lemtosh the others have two dot, three dot or no dot on the frames, none have that rectangular dash common to most of your pics.
I’ve found Moscot customer service to be excellent and while there’s no substitute for trying glasses on, with my last purchase they sent me a handbook with pics of every frame, dimensions etc which they would probably send if you asked nicely! Heir website is decent too. Good luck!

Are there frames that become progressively more transparent as they go down? I’ve seen bI color, but not sure is a frame that has a gradient of color toward clear.
