How wide should my glasses be? I like 52 because I have a high prescription (it's a bit thick even with high index) but an optician told me that too small makes my head look big. I am leaning towards Prada PS03CV and they come both in 52 and 54. I have kind of a lean, long face with a square jaw.

Thanks.

Hi Daniel!

That's pretty normal, really. It happens to most glasses.

If they are non-polarized, the originals cost usually between $20-$35

I have a pair of prada prescription glasses and I broke one of the temples. Is it possible to just order new temples for them? If so, where?

Hi I was wondering should the CE appear before or after made in Italy on Gucci sunglasses?

Just bought a pair of Ray Ban Clubmaster prescription glasses. The order confirmation says RX 5154 but on the frame it says RB 5154. Are RX and RB basically the same frame? Any difference at all?
Thanks in advance.

It's the same thing, just Ray-Ban uses the code RX 5154, but on the frames it would be RB 5154. They use the RX just for themselves so they don't get confused between eyeglasses and sunglasses.

i have a pair of chanel sunglasses that i bought at well known store in california that sells used designer clothes. I only see the imprint of channel on the both lenses and a serial number, nothing on the side of the frames at all. they are vintage. i hope they are not fake i paid alot of money for them

My Mom found a pair of Prada's on the bus and asked me to try and find the original owner.I have been unsuccessful and have decided to sell them. The right lens is etched BP8414470 but there is no writing of any kind on the side of the frames.Is it possible that the letters wore off? If they are not real I'm not going to pretend they are.

Some Ray Ban sunglasses do not have a country of origin inside the temple. Why do they not have that information? I thought all imported items had to show where it was made.
