    Everyone talks about the frame for fashion but nobody is talking about the lense. Glass is a must. CR39, polycarbonate, and trivex look like shit in comparison, especially after a few weeks or months of owning them. Glass doesn’t scratch easily and looks as new as the day you bought them. This in turn makes the eyes look better and super clear to the onlooker. It absolutely shows in photos too; glass wearers absolutely mog plastic wearers and eyes look pristine and magnetic. Only reason to get plastic ever is for rimless frames.

      trivex > polycarb > glass
      there’s a reason no one uses glass anymore. even high end brands won’t use it and that says all you need to know

        >trivex > polycarb > glass
        No explanation given. You’re an idiot. Polycarbonate is horrible with it’s low abbe value and high chromatic aberration. CR39 is optically better than trivex.
        >there’s a reason no one uses glass anymore.
        Except Zeiss and Corning and others? And the reason is it’s more scratch resistant and can last decades without any decay and the profit incentive of replacing them every year isn’t there and most lense discussion occurs with opticians who don’t even know glass lenses exist. Safety is NOT the reason. They are very safe, undergo chemical tempering and need to be FDA cleared. Even for bad optical quality glass, like 1.9 index, people with bad prescriptions benefit tremendously from how thin they can be.

        >even high end brands won’t use it and that says all you need to know
        All the high end brands use glass sunglass lenses by default. Most brands ship and deal with a third party lab. Even in the high end normie Eyewear like Oliver Peoples and Persol, glass lenses are offered and are their most expensive material. Glass performs objectively better, holds up better, and looks better.

        Until you get into a minor car accident, the airbag deploys, and your eyes are full of glass shards.

        There is only ONE instance of this happening and this was to a Japanese man with untempered lenses. When tempered glass shatters, it falls apart into hundreds of small uniform pieces and even then it is often contained within the frame. If CR39 shatters, sharp shards can splinter and get in the eye. Literal non issue and a worry only for hypochondriacs in both cases.

        lenses are not made from glass anymore for the same reason car windshields are not. but contrarian gay anon over there will keep spouting ignorant garbage just to be different

        You’ve really proved yourself to be an idiot.

      Don’t listen to this Anon, everything in the glasses is what you’re looking at. Most glasses wearers enjoy their digital screens and never grasped that outdated cliche they call a click, back when geeks and nerds were made out of metal and plastic, not holhaplohapgroup bullshit like we got today. Even their memes stank, that’s because they’re using the wrong glass color, the frames are meant to let others know you got high blinds or low blinds on your peripheral.

        Which is why you want the best optical material. Also wearing glasses in front of a screen worsens myopia. They should be taken off at a computer.

        Whats your prescription? What was the frame? The higher the prescription the heavier the weight and the larger and more rectangular the frame the heavier the weight too. Glass also comes in a variety of refractive indexes which affects density, generally lower the RI, the less dense, the lower the weight. For most glasses and prescriptions with crown optical glass it’s only a little heavier than CR39, about 1.5x to 2x for the lenses. There might be an island of lightness where the thinnest of an greater RI might offset the increased density of the material, subjectively 1.6 index seem lighter based on samples from barberini I’ve handled. The super heavy glass lenses comes into play with 1.9 high index glass which should be reserved for really bad prescriptions. On the bright side, they’re super thin. Good prescriptions should get low index crown glass for the best optical performance. Keep in mind, most opticians have never handled glass and most optometrists I talk to dispense 1 pair or less on average a year.

    Don’t want to sound like a shill but I finally started a "real" job that has vision insurance so I splurged on the nicest glasses I could get and I got some Salt Optics frames and they are amazing

    I saw a 20ish year old young blond male wearing pit vipers the other day. Can I safely assume he was some flavor of right wing?

    Does anyone know similar frames to the one Mastroianni uses in 8 1/2? The closest I’ve found is this one but I wonder if there are any cheaper options

    what’s the point of buying 400-800 dollar glasses when you can find similar looking ones at a fraction of the price? isn’t it only the design of the frame that matters? expensive glasses is the one /fashion/ kink that i’ll never understand.

    I’ve got an eye exam in a few days, and I’ve worn rectangular frames my whole life. What I’m gathering is I should avoid picking them again from now on.
