Framed !... The Eyeglasses Thread
I LOVE my glasses! I don't think I'll ever go to contacts...

Lafont


and my sunglasses (which look MUCH better with dark lenses!)


So- lets see your favorite glasses!
I would love some ideas for new glasses this summer!

I always wear glasses. I have a birthmark under my left eye and the glasses help disguse it. Also, I just like glasses.

I only ever have one pair at a time, and I tend to go for very simple styles. Anyone who has seen my pictures has seen my glasses. They are very plain wire-rims that reminded me of Benjamin Franklin

I might have to get a new pair pretty soon, though I don't really want to. I know I have to get new lenses, because these had this UV coating on them that went funky and is peeling off and is all pocked and pitted and making it very difficult to focus. I have a headache pretty much all of the time. I hope the optometrist can just put new lenses back in these frames. I have had them for several years now, though, and I am afraid the optometrist is going to say they are too bent up and are likely to break

Mine are Armani ones that look similar to this. I don't really like wearing glasses but I do when I'm at home doing homework, or when I want to look sophisticated

I wish I could wear my glasses in public occasionally, but I am so terribly nearsighted that my eyes look so tiny when they are on! Plus I am so used to contacts that my depth perception goes all funny when I put on my glasses. My glasses are really only for emergencies.

i wear glasses.. no contacts but i want to wear sunglasses.. how do i do this?
shoeaddict: when you wear your sunglasses, do you have to switch from glasses to sunglasses all the time?

and my glasses are calvin klein. i don't feel like looking for a pic cuz they're very plain. just a titanium blue-grey frame.

i bought regular sunglasses and had the lenses changed to my prescription...i've been wearing tinted lenses for everyday for many years now...i've stopped now because i just need something different...

silver metal frames-cutler and gross w/ green lenses-very cool-remind me of london

crystal clear plastic goggle wrap aroundframes-w/top half of lenses tinted grey (custom made-very sci-fi futuristic)...great in the summer with all white

little blk rectangular wire frame-dk grey lenses-(very j lennon)by morgenthal frederriks

heavy blk frames with top of lens tinted grey and bottom half tinted brown-the brown really warms up your complexion...by paul smith
*note-i had these lenses tinted blue at first, but everyone looked like a walking corpse through them and it was awful, so i changed them)


i've been wearing glasses since elementary school , so i've tried about every variation by now...i'm somewhat bored ...but my friend says they make me look smart and every little bit helps ...hahaha...

those hugo boss frames are nice maarit

It's a bit of a pain...
But mostly I wear the sunglasses in the car, then switch before I get out.
I did find a good glasses case that makes switching easier.

I tend to spend a lot of time outside in the summer ( taking kids to the playground) so I can just leave them on all day.
Luckily it's not too sunny here in Washington during the rest of the year, so I do okay!
