    Using eyewear without temple tips

    A customer bought some frames that have rather chunky temple tips. They like the look of the temples themselves and wondered if they can just have the tips removed and wear them without the tips. The temples are titanium, and wouldn't appear to be particularly uncomfortable if they sat on the ear. I wasn't quite sure what to recommend.

    They also inquired if no temple tips is not an option if there is some type of very discreet tip that could be put on, preferably clear. I showed them some tips we had in store, but they were all kind of big compared to what they had in mind, which is something that doesn't add any bulk to the wire.

    Any ideas on either front? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the idea. I'm wondering if you have any experience with this specifically?
