proculap montana: I have a pair of semi-rimless, and I bought a titanium rimless pair of
frames. i want to drill 4 holes into the lens that are in the semi-rimless,
so i can mount the lens onto the titanium rimless. what will happen if use
a Dremel with the right size drill bit, and drill into the Ziess poly lens?
I have been to many Optical stores and they told me it can't be done, and
they won't do it. So i'm attempting it myself. Any advice would be
appreciated. This new rimless set of frames have the same setup as you are
working on in this video. Is this a press fit type of mount???
Alejandro Medina: @Rene549 late answer but , i do with a very quick heat exposure, it softens
the nylon enough to dissasemble
visionsofcanada: Hi @lhuyng, The optician that you purchased your Silhouette eyeglasses from
should be happy to tighten them up for you at little to no cost. We never
charge for adjustments on our products.
julianppp: nice video - i have a pair of silhouettes, i love them, i am pretty sure
they will last forever. one question, though: what is it that holds the
glasses together: is it glue, is it solely the pressure applied to the
plugs, what is it? i mean i sat on mine, i dropped them, i have had them
slapped with a hockey stick, pulled at by people, etc. i am amazed at how
strong they continue to be and i would like to know what holds them
together. thank you.
Boyntonstu: How do you take it apart for a replacement temple, etc?
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.
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
CJ Eyedoc: Very informative!
Rene549: Does anyone know how to disassemble these?
edgar5001: hey are these standardized? I have a pair of frameless glasses but dont
like the rest of the frame the (ear pieces) Can i put these frames on a
pair of old framless glasses i had?
kamil: so the nose piece holes should be approximately 1mm higher than the temple
holes is that right?
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 have special tools that we use to remove the plastic plugs, which hold
Richard Young: what do you use for a heat source? is a leaving in strong sunlight or
hairdryer enough heat?
Alejandro Medina: nice assembly collegue, greetings from Uruguay
Breeslave: I desire rimless glasses to minimize the fact that I wear glasses, what
frames that are or not rimless can I buy to minize the "nerdy look" of
glasses thanks to who ever has an answer.
visionsofcanada: We don't use heat when assembling or disassembling Silhouettes.
Novelistus: great video. Can you tell me a source in Canada where I can just buy a
temple to replace. My optician wants $ 145 for one temple which broke off
and I can simply not afford that. Last year I paid $ 90 for a temple and
that was already borderline. And $ 145 is just not possible. I don't care
about the color of the temple. This is the third temple already and I can
not spend couple hundred $ every year on eyewear. Great and lightweight
frame, but way too fragile.
ztarrfect: I use silhouette but there are many other brands that give you same look
for like 112 Euros including glasses, shipment.
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
Garry kousoulou: Nice video guys
ztarrfect: would hot or warm water do it?
kakyoukuzuki: that's really sweet!
TiredOldFart: Check eBay. You may find an entire frame that your lenses fit cheaper than
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: 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
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: 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.
visionsofcanada: Thank you, Aleramone23! Dear Edgar5001: It is likely that your lenses can
be put into another Silhouette frame. Its best to take them into an
optician to have the lenses put into new frames---and if they're quite old,
you might be due for an eye exam!
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.
