Find a frame

I need new glasses. Sadly, my choice of frames (RX5226 or RX5150, both Ray-Ban frames) are not available on the UK high street. Are there any trusted online retailers where I can get these frames, either with or without lenses? Or very similar? [more inside]

Repainting Glasses: How to?

I just bought new glasses. Yay! They are perfect, except one thing: there is a small purple stripe on each arm, and I've realized that I don't like it. I'd like to paint over the purple, with black. But is it foolish to try to repaint glasses? Is there a reliable method, or business that can do it for me, that my googling hasn't found? [more inside]

I CAN TAKE ANY ONE OF YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!!! No, wait, I'm just building a cup pyramid.

Australians of Metafilter, I want to hear from you! I've long heard that turning your glass upside down in a bar in Australia is the same as saying you think you could take anyone in the place. For some reason, this idea fascinates me. Is it true? Do people actually do this? What happens when they do? Where did it come from? [more inside]

Glasses causing irritation

I purchased a few pairs of glasses online about 6 months ago. Also, I sweat a lot. And the sweat seems to be corroding the arms of the glasses and causing some irritation where the arms contact my face. Is there something I can coat glasses with to prevent this?

Why does wearing my glasses wash out colors?

I just got my first pair of glasses (very small power, .5) because I was annoyed by everything being slightly blurry. I enjoy them for the most part, but since I can get by just fine without them I haven't figured out when I want to wear them and when I haven't - which I suppose is another question). However, I am bothered by the fact that when I put them on, all the colors I'm seeing seem to wash out very slightly. I suppose it's not that big of a deal, but once again, because I can for the most part see without them, many times it's rather off putting to wear them. Any opinions? (Opinions on how to decide when to wear them also welcome)

Do pinhole glasses work?

I found this pinhole glasses sold at the local pharmacy, and feel intrigued by its claim to help me see better and improve my vision overtime (I'm short-sighted). My skeptic alarm rang with warnings (if it's too good to be true, it usually is, etc.), but a quick google-fu turned up nothing substantial to refute such claims. So, does anybody have any experience or anecdotes to share in regards of such product ?

Removing superglue from a glasses lens?

Long story short, my boyfriend managed to get superglue on one of the lenses of his glasses and it had time to set overnight, and has had no success getting it off with rubbing alcohol or peroxide. He's wary of trying to scrape it off so as not to damage the lens and would like to avoid having to replace the glasses since his prescription is pretty expensive. The frames are plastic so I don't think it'd be much of a problem to have the glasses soak in a solution. Do you guys have any suggestions for a safe-as-possible way to remove the glue without damaging the lens too much, or at least a way to loosen it so that it doesn't involve too much scraping? (Would Goo Gone work on superglue that's on glass?) Or is he pretty much screwed and will need the lens replaced?
