    I have had good luck with prodesigns from Denmark

    prodesign

    I own these (first picture is exact, second is close - I could not find the exact frame online...)

    Bvlgari BV1011T. Nearly weightless, and good and strong.

    Though with rimless you have to worry about issues at the corners of the glass where they connect with the frames.

    I have a terrible time finding an optician who can accept my insurance (VSP) but also has something better than the Luxottica cookie cutter frames. Do you guys have any tips for this?

    I highly dislike glasses made by fashion labels. Just like watches from fashion labels. I dunno, I think it's best to buy things from brands that have a history of originally producing those goods...

    Mine are Vice Consul model by Oliver Goldsmith.
