I had my eyes tested yesterday and told the optician about my glasses always going down my nose (and when you think about it, when they test your eyes the glasses are rammed hard against your head, so the effect of the lenses will be different from the real glasses halfway down my nose). I said I'd like some like children have, with wire round the ears and she said she thought that wasn't necesary but didn't offer any other solution.
You don't want those! I had those as a child and more than 40 years later the skin still splits from time to time where they used to with the wire round my ears.

Thanks for all your replies. I think my mum was put off by the really, really high prices (£200 min) in the shop and so she wanted to see if she could get anything cheaper elsewhere. It's unfortuante that they are so expensive...and I guess I'm lucky because I managed to squeeze in my last pair of glasses on the NHS voucher for school age students. My mum was thinking about sending off her current frames, which are nice and in good condition, to get the lenses replaced which costs about £15. Then if that works well she might get some new frames and keep the others as spares. Thanks again
I doubt I'd get mine much cheaper anyway. Even with a cheaper frame I have to pay more than £200 extra for the lenses I need. And I'm not sure that a standard measurement is what I have.
