    Dear everybody,
    Please stop dropping metal balls on lenses. We don't like it. Thank you.
    Sincerely,
    All of the lenses in the world

    If the lenses are breaking, they are too thin. Simple problem, simple solution: make them thicker until they don't break. The rules exist for a reason...

    They would shatter under the impact: the lenses are not chem-temperable. That's why they cannot be sold in the US.
