I just got my first ever set of prescription glasses 10 days ago and I chose Transitions Active photo grey with anti-scratch & anti reflective coatings and Silhouette 5479/5473 rimless frames/chassis for their light weight, relatively obstruction free field of view and reported durability of the titanium ear pieces that can be twisted around and return to the original shape, but the bridge of the chassis appears to have been built crooked and needs to be rebuilt, so I get to decide whether to get the same frame/chassis as a replacement or pick a different frame/chassis that I think may serve me better than the current frame.
Concerns with this frame are it’s robustness, or lack thereof, for paddling and active sports - it seems pretty flimsy and definitely requires two hands to remove them from the face, otherwise they twist around a lot.
The arm pieces aren’t aligned with each other and I haven’t devised a way to correct that.
They keep sliding down my nose and I have gotten that figured out, either.
My current mindset is to replace the frames with some that are more robust, more user friendly for for adjustments and more fool proof for beginners, yet still be relatively light weight and comfortable.
It’s a minimum of an hour round trip to get to the eye clinic to get the optician’s assistance with evaluation and adjustments, so I thought I’d tap the extensive wealth of knowledge and experience of the Paddling.com prescription glasses wearing community.
I am a complete noobie an cluless about this, so any help would be appreciated. This set that I bought is quite expensive and I don’t have money for a second set for now, so I need to try to get a good set to start with.
