    Do you guys find that your eyebrows hit your lenses when you do close your eyes sometimes? It happens fairly often for me and leaves streaks of oil where they land on my lenses.

    I want a pair of Revo Transom sunglasses, but I don't want to pay $250 for them. are any of the sellers on ebay trustworthy or can I expect the Revo's being sold there to be fakes? how would you rate the quality of Revo sunglasses?

    Would these glasses work for me? http://www.warbyparker.com/mens-eyew...on-bottom?sc=9 [​IMG] I'm not sure on the size and color, I tend to like bigger glasses and I really like the color but I am not sure if they will work for me. Also if you don't think so/want to give me more options please do so! Sorry edit 3: How much on average would it cost to put scripts in frames? =====

    Hi CC,are contact lenses alone enough to protect against UV & computer glare?...would wearing a pair of specs with plano,multi-coated lens together with contacts actually help against UV & glare?

    I've looked through the thread, but haven't found discussion on the basic question of "what are your thoughts on semi rimless glasses"? I usually prefer full-frame glasses, but have found a pair of semi rimless Pradas in brown that might be my next pair, similar to these.

    It's down to those or the Oliver Peoples Becque. I have a roundish-oval face, and a beard that I didn't have last time I bought glasses; maybe it's the extra interest on the lower half of my face that makes the semi rimless look a bit more solid than usual.

    Should I buy these sunglasses? I really like the look of this model, and I've been wanting to buy these for a while now, but no online stores have them in stock. I called around, and a local store happens to have them in stock, but they're selling them for $200. That's significantly more pricey than what I would have to pay online, and I'm not sure if I'm going to have to have the lenses replaced later with prescription lenses - it depends on whether or not I can get used to wearing contacts; so that could be a lot of money on polarized lenses just to have them replaced. Thoughts?

    I suggest you preorder if you want them. You will get them around June 6th
    These glasses go SUPER fast because they are only $95! WITH PRESCRIPTIONS
    If you don't like them 100% money back
    Every pair you buy they donate a pair to charity
    Also if you dont want to risk it, you can wait till june when they have glasses in stock and do the home try on. They send you 5 pairs of glasses at no charge/obligation to you then you send them back
