do you have a take on the quality/appeal of Mont Blanc for accessories like eyewear, wallets, etc? I seem to be running organically into recommendations for this brand as I find myself unable to afford the top makers in a category but I don't want to end up in a situation where I've gotten something that's neither reasonably priced nor extra-nice but ended up spending a chunk of money on no-man's land in between.

I want to order prescription sunglasses online. Looking at Zenni Optical right now. The frames I like seem to have a minimum PD of 64. Mine is 62. How much difference does a couple digits make? Can I order 64s and have them be usable for driving? Or do I need to pick different frames? [more inside]

When and why did it become the convention that blind people would wear dark glasses? Would the purpose be to hide the eyes or to act as a signifier of blindness? Is it something that is done less these days and what are the reasons why?

I have an existing pair of glasses frames I'd like to get fitted with prescription lenses. I've done entirely too much research, and I still have questions! [more inside]

I have a pair of cheapo aviator sunglasses that I love. Any way I can get the scratch out of the lens?
