    Yeah... My glasses were bent to heck after 3 years of use... I usually put them on the table by my bed, but I fell asleep with them on last night, and sometime in the course of the night, the lens popped out, the circle frame that holds the lens snapped, and I lost the little screw that holds the deformed broken piece all together.... Good thing I paid off my credit card last night, I'm probably going to need it:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    That's great and all................. If I had something to wear between ordering and receiving the item... The $100 payment I paid on my credit card won't be posted until tomorrow, so I would've had to either wait or send them a check... Not to mention the fact that I can't try on their stinkin glasses and see how they look on me...

    I'm quite happy with my purchase, other than the fact that it cost me all the money from my paycheck that I was going to put into savings... plus all my spending money... and quite a nice chunk of my gas money.... Figures this would happen a month before I was planning on buying new glasses (when I would have money set aside specifically for that), and the day AFTER I spend $100... sheesh...

    I got some sexy glasses with the magnetic sunglass lenses... They're a lot smaller and more round than the ones I broke, so I don't look like a geek anymore :cool1: Plus I got a free $20 cleaning kit:D

    I've got a backup pair. When I had this script filled the lab screwed up and lost my order - then left the anti-glare coating off.... then lost the order again, blah blah blah. They started from scratch and filled the script as written ... then found the original pair. They gave them to me. $300 pair of specs for free. I don't need them to "see", just read and do "close up" stuff. :D

    Those aren't chick glasses.

    I'm going to be ordering a pair, $39??? Damn!!

    Military glasses work great and are impossible to break, just don't leave the house with them on. :grin:

    My glasses are some serious pieces of crap right now. I have to tighten the screws daily or a lens will pop out, usually when I'm driving. I guess if they go caput, I'll wear my safety glasses till the folks from that link can ship some to me. I'm hoping they last another year however, since my wife want's to buy me lasik for next Christmas. Whoo hoo!

    Exactly... Ya know, I have my Air Force glasses on a shelf with some other memorabilia........ I didn't even consider wearing them... The fact that they're huge and ugly, combined with the other fact that they don't stay on my face without the use of straps.... NO WAY....

    Why doesn't the military go with goggles?

    I was thinking about Buddy Holly glasses

    Think I will...either that, or the glasses place will give you longer screws with nuts on top for free...did that on an earlier pair. Luckily, I wear safety glasses 11 hours a day, 6 days a week so it limits the useage of my "daily drivers" lol.
