Lenses on my sunglasses are scratched to fuck. Worth replacing lenses or just cop another pair ?

Depends on the cost (of the lenses and the replacement sunglasses) and how much you like your sunglasses really.

Look nice who they by?

I'm after some nice aviators, any recommendations? Ray bans are a bit too triangular / pointy for me! I lost a pair of diors that where spot on but not seen any since.

No problem. I guess I mean the height rather than width seemed surprisingly small when worn.
Definitely well made though

Every pair of sunnys I ever buy seem to fall down my nose at the bridge, always end up pushing them back up every 5 mins. Possible to get sunnys altered to fit better at the bridge?

You can buy silicone pads to stick on the inside of the frame to make them stick to your nose. A bit nan kid though.

You'd be better off buying sunglasses with a narrower bridge really.

Its probably not the bridge, but instead due to the drop on the arms not fitting tightly to your head. You'll need to create a sharper bend. Most opticians can do this free or cheaply. Or if you have plastic frames then you can blast the arms with a hairdryer (hot setting) for a few seconds and gently bend them yourself.

That's true, it can also be down to the temples not fitting correctly.

But I would strongly advise against using the hairdryer method, it can crack coatings on lenses. Take them to an optician.

Thanks all - any recommendations of a decent London optician who can do this for me?

Any optician can do it if you ask them nice enough
