Re: Always the culprit, always....

Absolutely fascinating about the glasses manufacturer. It explains why a pair of Versace glasses I saw at the mall that would not have been covered by my plan, I was able to find a near identical pair, minus the logo/branding, on the website the insurance wants you to get frames from

I’d be surprised if they couldn’t put new lenses in, given they currently sell the exact same frames. Maybe it just wouldn’t be covered by insurance? Mine are Ray Bans and thick plastic. I’ve noticed nothing wrong with them besides looking a bit beaked up... Perhaps some demon beak marks could be a new trend/design feature My mom actually buys frames for my dad at thrift stores and just takes them in to have the right prescriptions put in (my dad has a propensity to break and loose glasses frequently). I’ve never heard of them not being able to do that. Maybe chain stores can’t?

There are consequences for every action and you chose to wear glasses Man, I can only imagine Kiwi trying to do that... broken glasses and a very pissed off birdie on the floor (and possibly claw marks on my face from as he fell).

Re: Always the culprit, always....

LOL< love the pict!

Appie does this sometimes: flies over and lands on the glasses (even though they are officially rimless ones...)

-

Anyone can put new glasses in existing frames, but some shops do not want the bother...

(Mine have to be sent over to another town because they need a special machine for drilling the holes in the new glasses to attach the old frame, so we have to plan this and I'll be "out-of-eyes" for as short a time as possible)

Re: Always the culprit, always....

My Sam loves to take the glasses off and chew them. Obviously, we cannot allow that. So now, we both wear contacts! What we won't do for our fids.
