Cat eye acetate sunglasses
I need some help with eye wear/frame selection
I have been wearing cat eye sunglasses for 10 years or so and really like them
I love how slim they are and feel light on the face
However my prescription is about 1.0D-2.0D so I need a prescription size
My eyes have been very sensitive for several years now but that doesn't mean that I can't wear sunnies. I have worn a pair of aviators but they are very expensive and I like how much I can see with cat eye sunglasses
Here is the problem that I have
The lenses are really thick and the frame itself doesn't feel very comfortable. But I like the look so I don't want to get rid of them
The only thing that makes them a bit uncomfortable is the fact that the temples are too wide for my head. I have no idea how much a prescription would narrow these. Do you have any recommendations for a frame that might work for me?
The frames are made by Oakley, I think they are more comfortable and the lens is more opaque. I am using an Rx of 1.50 to 1.75 and the frames are slightly wider than my glasses
I'm a huge fan of the way Oakley cat eye sunnies look on you, and have several pairs, myself. The wide shape lends itself very well to a slim frame. But if you're looking for something a bit different then check out Oakley frames that look a bit like goggles, like the Ray-Bans, for a very different look.
Thanks for the reply. I have been thinking about Oakley for a while now. I do have a few frames from them. I like the idea of having a very slim profile with a very wide shape so that I can see as much as possible
The only real problem is that the prices are really high. It is the frames that make up for that in my opinion.
I have a Ray-Bans 1.6, which I bought at the beginning of the year when my prescriptions changed. Before they changed I had glasses and never thought I'd wear prescription frames. I like them but not because they're stylish. I like them because they're comfortable and my eyes are happy. They're also very durable and if I ever do end up wearing glasses again I can replace them easily with another pair. That's a good thing with glasses that tend to get scratched if you're going to the beach, or walking, etc.
I tried to find pictures of me with my prescription glasses to post here but can't find any where I didn't look like a freak with an extra pair of glasses. I guess that's not an uncommon look in pictures, but I like how they're supposed to make you look really young and cool, but I feel like I look stupid!
They're a very popular brand amongst teens and 20-somethings.
For the glasses I bought them from a local optician and they were the equivalent of 70 dollars which for a guy with decent money isn't that bad, but if you're doing an apprenticeship in your trade they're not going to be as well priced as the sunglasses.
But just because a brand is cheap to buy it doesn't necessarily mean it's cheap to make. Oakley make a hell of a good pair of glasses. It's not a brand that people are going to be looking at but it's always a pleasure to look at a pair of Oakley eyeglasses.
And I don't think I'm going to be looking at my specs any time soon.
I think I'm going to stick to what I like now and buy a few nice pairs of Oakley's. They're comfortable, durable and I can't find another pair of glasses that are as good in quality.
A few years ago I could have bought a decent pair of Oakley's for around 150 dollars.
Now they cost at least as much as the pair of sunglasses I had on when I bought them.
To sum up this post.
If you want to wear a pair of glasses that are going to last you for years and make you look younger than you are then there's only one brand you can buy from, OAKLEY.
If you want to buy something a bit more practical then that's a bit more complicated.
There are a few other brands that are pretty cheap, but they don't make their money by making a pair of glasses that's going to last forever. And they don't make their money off of the cool factor.
So that's it, I'm glad I found a pair of Oakley's in the bottom of my desk drawer. I'd rather have a pair of cheap sunglasses, that will last me a lifetime than a pair of glasses that cost a fortune and don't do anything in the first place.
I think it is much better to have a good frame on top, rather than a cheap pair of plastic frames that you can get easily at your local optician.
The best pair of glasses are not "just" the lenses, but the frame and the material of the frame are equally important. Also, you can not just buy a pair of Oakley glasses without making sure that you have them adjusted properly.
That's why it is very important that you have your frames checked out by an optician.
I know it's not easy to find the best frames, because often times, cheap glasses are just a frame without any other "good stuff" inside it, whereas you actually need an optician to be able to tell you what is actually "wrong" with the frame you have.
