GAAAAWWWWWWDAMNIT!!!

My eye-glasses just broke! Titanium frames.
I was just starting to clean the lenses and the bridge piece snapped in half!

Re: GAAAAWWWWWWDAMNIT!!!

I'm glad the folks you know who had it done that cheaply have no problems. Perhaps their eyesight wasn't all that bad? Personally, I would run like hell from those cheap places. I would always go with a reputable doc and not those "lasik factories" that offer it for $599. I had bad astimatism along with my nearsightedness so I needed to make sure I found someone good.

Re: GAAAAWWWWWWDAMNIT!!!

I had the Flexon frames before going with LASIK. You know, the indestructible ones that you could wrap around your finger and they would spring back into shape. Well, even they can break................if you play with them too much.
After spending large amounts of money on frames, lenses and contacts over the years I decided that going with the LASIK made sense in every aspect.

Sucks about the frames, but maybe the eye gods are trying to tell you something.

i am with you. the way he described it to me = tractor trailer and the doc came in and cut him, gave him a perscription and then sent him home, he said there were between 30-40 appointment for that day. the price he paid was for lifetime work on the eyes. without the lifetime it would hav cost him 199

No. Not Oakleys. They were the springy Ti frames though...I guess they just reached their age limit...about 4 years old.
Thank you for the offer but I got some new ones today....No way I could wait as I didn't have a spare set.

I'll look into Lasik at some point down the road when it gets a little cheaper and Doc's get even more experience with it. I have this big hang-up about things being in/on or near my eyes so going to the optometrist is kinda like going to the dentist for a root canal.

Re: GAAAAWWWWWWDAMNIT!!!

$600 LASIK? fughettaboutit. These are your eyes. That's too damn serious to go in to an assembly line where the doc is tired from doing 30 people before you.

Where they glued together from the factory NH? I've had Ti glasses that were.
