Albert, at Optical4Less sent me an email noting a new frame on the site. Wow. I've always liked bolder frames so rimless isn't typically a route I travel. For those looking for a cleaner, more transparent look, they're a great option... and then there is the target market for these. Look below! They're GLOW-IN-THE-DARK.
Kind of "bulky" for rimless frames. "Bold" dare I say? Not that you'd probably wear these to a black-tie affair (or to the candlelight Christmas service), but I think there is a place in my glasses wardrobe for these.
Fireworks? Rave? Halloween party? Late night jog around the block? For a little extra light in case of a power failure?
I'll have to remember to carry some GlassyEyes cards with me when I wear these at night. You're asking yourself, "Ira? Are you seriously considering these?" Absolutely,
I'm consideringI've ordered a pair of these "glow-in-the- dork-dark" beauties. Certainly something I DON'T already have -- and a stark contrast to my first pair of rimless frames.
Chime in! Where else are you in need of a little light (or attention)?

Dorky, yes, but fun. :o)
Not sure I would be happy with the late-night jogging idea, though. Wouldn't that mess up your night vision, having glowing thingies all around your eyes? Drivers/other joggers/muggers might see YOU, but you might never see THEM.

Those frames are so cool. As soon as I can, I'm going to order them!

Hmm, it's getting close to the end of the year for me. I think it's time for another pair of awesomely cheap glasses. :)

The only way these could get better is if they make full plastic (no rimless) versions! I am so getting these tho.
Thanks again Ira!

guys, guys, you are all too young. Those of us old geezers regularly get up in the middle of the night and don't want to wake our spouses fumbling in the dark for our glasses.
Voila! glow in the dark glasses!
