sogard29: Hi! I have an uncut pair of -3.25 diopter Zeiss Duravision Platinum lenses, 1.5 refractive index. Can they be mounted on a rimless frame, like Silhouette (taking in consideration that they are quite thick due to this diopter value)? Is it risky to assemble this kind of frames on the lenses I’ve mentioned, as they say that while drilling the holes for the plugs, the lens can crack?
Too CoolDude: Thank you very much
Atma Ram Neupane: God. I have come to be extremely jealous towards my brother’s best friend. He has been alone for life. Yet somehow he made a catalogue model to inform him she has fallen deeply in love with him in less than a month. Just how is that even thinkable? He told me he tried the Cupid Love System (Google it!) I wish someone gorgeous fell for me… I cannot remember at any time seeing him so cheerful. Sort of makes me frustrated.
visionsofcanada: Sometimes, but not always. Each lens shape has it's own drill chart. Sometimes the bridge is higher, sometimes lower, and other times it lines up with the temples.
visionsofcanada: They come to our from Silhouette, the manufacturer. If you want to replace the temples, the best thing to do is to bring it to an optical store that sells Silhouettes and pay them to replace it.
Jack Ramsey: How special is the tool for removing the plastic plugs? Have spare sets of temples, and plugs. Temple broken at spring bending point.
visionsofcanada: We have special tools that we use to remove the plastic plugs, which hold everything together.
Boyntonstu: How do you take it apart for a replacement temple, etc?
kamil: so the nose piece holes should be approximately 1mm higher than the temple holes is that right?
visionsofcanada: It's quite the process, but we're not in the business of coating lenses. We leave that to our trusted manufacturers. The ability for your anti glare to stick to your lens depends on the coating process more than it depends on the brand of anti-glare. As you have experienced, there are a lot of cheaply made glasses out there, even if they cost you a lot of money!
The good thing is that you can reuse your Silhouette frames. Have them fitted with lenses from a reputable manufacturer w a warranty.
ztarrfect: how do they put the anti-glare on btw, just curious ;) no, no warranty, with my silhouette the anti glare, It chipped of after 2 months but before I could got to the store the warranty run off, so that's why I ask And is there any improvement of having really durable anti-glare? Because its silly I have glasses that are 15 years old, with normal glass on them payed about $50 for them is and they are still fine. I buy silhouette for about 600 and the anti-glare was gone in seconds.
visionsofcanada: We don't use heat when assembling or disassembling Silhouettes.
visionsofcanada: Hi ztarrfect,
There is no way to get anti-glare off of a lens, sorry. I would check to see if your lenses are still under the manufacturer's warranty.
ztarrfect: I use silhouette but there are many other brands that give you same look for like 112 Euros including glasses, shipment.
ztarrfect: would hot or warm water do it?
ztarrfect: nice video do you perhaps know how to get off the anti reflection. I got glasses payed really a lot and the anti reflection chipped of here end there.
ztarrfect: on ebay de there are a lot of cheap glasses I even found some for 43 euros including 1.5 index glasses and for 25 more you have 1.61 index they are about 20 to 30% thinner than 1.5 index
TiredOldFart: Check eBay. You may find an entire frame that your lenses fit cheaper than $145.
Garry kousoulou: Nice video guys
CJ Eyedoc: Very informative!
