I usually change them every 18 months or so.
I figure it is something I wear day in, day out and therefore very important.

I change other things so if it is something I wear all the time, I have no problem changing them 12 - 18 months even if they are OK>

I usually have a slight change in eyesight anyway.

Have just bought a fabulous frame from a tiny shop I discovered in Perth where they only bring in from overseas, a few at a time.

Yes - every year. Specsavers have a great range of frames and my private insurance covers the whole cost which is fantastic! I prefer plastic frames as metal tends to irritate me. My preferred colours are red and lime green.
No, I have only replaced them once and that was because I lost my glasses. I've worn glasses about ten years. I like simple wire frames. Cheaper and sort of timeless.
Thanks, Jennifer, I'll keep that in mind, ("Cheaper & timeless") when I buy my next pr of frames, late next month that I've been informed, that I'll only need for reading.

I would like to get more now, as I wear glasses during the day.

They can really be part of accessories, but some are way too expensive.I have no idea how they
justify $300 for a pair of frames that look quite ordinary.
Some of my friends get a copy of their prescription for their glasses, and buy from overseas....they see what they like on the internet and order.
Paying only a fraction of the cost, with heaps of new colours and designs.
Never hear a bad word spoken about them! so something is working well I would say.
I am going to do it and just see the difference.
Have you done this yet, Jonaj?
by Miro
Sure have!
I now have a pair of dark red.....and tomorrow a pair of purple....and in a month I want a pair the colour in my pic hot pink.
Then a pair of dark blue.....and then after that a pair of glass-coloured. :) Sooo much fun, and great comments from friends...But I got them here, as I found a great cheaper place.

I don't change mine regularly - probably every 4 years
by AJ
I do not wear glasses!!! I do like stylish metallic colours such as rich burgundy,deep greens and blues.
I don't change my frames that often, as it is so expensive and generally once I've found a pair I like, I wear them until they fall apart! So usually I change them only when they are beyond repair or my prescription has changed.

I don't prefer a particular colour, my choice is limited by being allergic to most frames so I'm just grateful if there is a pretty pair in any colour that I can wear.
I'd love to have a couple of pairs in different colours but the expense is prohibitive. So I stick to the one pair and I don't change them unless I have to change the lenses which is probably between 2 and 4 years.
I would like to be rich enough to have several frames to suit my mood, but I don't. I usually have to borrow money or save up for a long time when I need new glasses.
glass frames really not fussed about them only use them for reading ,
No. Any metal colour, NOT plastic!
I've glasses & 'sunnies' of varying ages, ALL with metal! At least they don't move on my sweaty head or oily nose!
AND they last; my oldest sunglasses are 35 years' & one pair of computer/theatre/movie seeing ones' are 40 years!
Only if I need to, like if my frames are dated, or they start to discolour, as far as the colour goes, I choose ones that suit my face, at present I have red ones.
I've expensive Gucci and Dior frames which I use all the time only changing the lens when necessary. I also have mauve, gold, burgandy and purple as I've 2 pairs of each lens, one in my handbag, prescription sunnies in the car, and computer glasses as well.
Are your beautiful frames covered by your health insurer, Helga?
by Miro
Hi Miro. Yes, my frames were covered but only to the maximum the health fund allows on top cover. The balance I had to pay myself, hence wanting to keep them for as long as I can.

I'd only change my frames, when I really had too, so it would be black & more black for me, except the only floral patterned dresses I wear that it doesn't match is a blue 1, so I may also need to buy blue or white frames as well! I used to have to wear glasses full time, but after I have my 2nd cataract removed, I've been told I'll only need reading glasses. Before I needed prescription glasses, I had 7 prs of sunnies, with different coloured frames, then I had to give them all the op shop, except for a pink framed pr, with blue. These were from the middle '60's, so I'm not getting rid of them, as there nearly antique, like me! I recently wore them on my last holiday!
by Miro
I only need to wear magnified glasses now, which will be so much cheaper! Priceline sell them for $20 each, but very recently I found a shop selling them for $6, but they didn't have many with 2.50 strength lensers, so I'll have another look, next time I'm near the shop, & I'll buy a white framed pr if they sell them!
