    I like scanning through formal attire for ladies and pick one to wear in some occasion.

    it all depends on your Rx. with me, if i want 100% crystal clear vision, i need to shell out $500+ on some special lens that corrects everything orrrrrr i can spend $150-$175 and get something that i can live with everyday. the difference between the two doesn't warrant the $400 premium, so that's why i don't pay for it.
    Or you can be a huge dumbass like myself and skip glasses/contacts, clinging to the hope of one day amassing enough extra cash for laser eye surgery.

    The worst part is that my aunt is a laser eye surgeon and won't even give me a discount.

    zeiss lenses will not solve a lot of people's problems. it's all about the Rx. sure, they will be nice for a simple near or far sighted Rx, but other's with unique situations, there isn't a perfect solution.

    For me, new glasses would be strictly a sartorial thing. I don't wear glasses now unless one of my eyes is practically falling out. I actually like contact lenses, aside from the cost associated with them.

    Once I started wearing contacts, glasses became a terrible thing to wear out in public. I remember getting a viral infection in one eye in late 2008 that forced me to stay away from contacts for more than a week. That's what prompted me to get new glasses. While I was waiting for those to come in, I had my wonky glasses from like 10th grade. I remember going to the gym with just one lens instead of wearing the glasses. That's fun, driving home on a December night with only one eye opened.

    kinda curious about your motivation for this, care to explain?

    The majority of my stuff is

    - for working at target
    - purchases at the thrift store I didn't think through


    Also, I don't have a 'professional' enough wardrobe. 95% was an exageration. But as it stands I need to have a lot of stuff tailored , or just admit there is no room for it in my wardrobe.

    you could do a cheap ass pair for when you need/want to wear glasses then do some faux lenses on nicer frames with wearing contacts. i know quite a few people that do this.

    It is quite possible I'll be in a different job once moved. I am just trying to be optimistic.

    I was thinking about that. I've never worn such lenses. Is there much of a difference in appearance between them and legit lenses?

    i think it would be made of the same material. Rx lenses are just cut and bent in a way to distort and refract light in a certain way. i don't see why making one with zero distortion is any different.
