I Broke It while Repairing it!

That's how foolishly I broke my pair of spectacles. Some of the screws on the frame had gone loose. I was trying to tighten them but while I was doing it I bent the frame too hard and it snapped! I need spects only to read. I don't have to stop reading or writing. I have a "use-n-throw" Chinese pair which works fine for me! Opticians and ophthalmologists discourage them but I find them good enough to fall back on. Have you ever tried them?

No, I have never heard of these. I should get some as if I lose or break my glasses I would really be in trouble.

They come ready made. They are sold in optical shops. You have to wear them and find which one suits you the best.

@franxav They sound like good to keep as a back up pair

Quite a few of my acquaintances use them. Those glasses are quite OK for them.

I find them OK too, only I don't find them large enough for me.

@franxav (some designer glasses these days, are small like that, and some people really like them .)

I haven't heard about that. I hope you can get a new specs. I need a new one to replace mine. But it was costly.

New spects will be costly. Hopefully, I'll get them in a month.

I've used them before and found them very helpful. I sometimes wonder if I should just use them and not bother with the expensive ones.

I have seen some of my friend use them always. Those glasses look too small for my face.

Nice to know about them. How much they cost you.

Compared to the ordered spects, they are quite cheap. In our neighborhood we get them for 80 rupees a piece.

Are those like cheaters you use?
@franxav (4065)
23 Sep
Probably. Cheaters mean different things at our place. What are they exactly for you?

What a shame. Those shopkeepers are rather unhelpful here also.
