    I do tell people not to expect them to be sunglasses in the car and it isn't a problem in my office. I just don't think that trans 8 is any different. It still isn't sunglasses in the car, so it's...

    Charmant does this too. Not sure if they have extra you can stock. Sometimes you can get them a little wet with lens cleaner and they stick a tiny bit. I get them on and then give it a squeeze and...

    I forgot to add that when I do an POF order, most of the time I do it as lenses only and the lab doesn't get the frame. We do tracing and c-sizes.
