    • Elaine King I agree. I can’t see very well without glasses. Makes choosing a new pair an adventure to say the least.

    • I agree, hard picking new frames and I have 2 pairs so that makes it harder. Will get prescription sunnies next time too.

    • Husband had his frame for 10 years – titanium – and then it just broke beyond repair. Getting a new frame, was like looking for a needle in a haystack. Hopefully it will also last 10 years.

  7. I bought my current frames in early 2005. They replaced a set which are the same brand and model. The old frames became my script sunnies. Frames are titanium and the total weight of either pair is 24gms. Yes they are expensive however they have cost me 11 cents a day so far. B|
