You know those little oval plastic things mounted on little wires on metal frame glasses to keep the glasses a little bit off your nose? Well the right one of those fell off my glasses last night =P

(Right near the end of a 5+ hour game of Empire Builder =P I did a little bit better at it this time, came in second.)

The glasses still work, they just feel odd, and possibly look lopsided. I don't _really_ want to spend $100-200 (or more) on a new pair of glasses right now. I wonder if i make a regular eye appointment (which i'm overdue for anyhow) if they'd be able to solder the piece back on or something?

However in order to do that i need to figure out a time i can go by there, which may be difficult given that i'm hella busy for the foreseeable future.

This saturday shelleycat and i are going to be hanging out with balivatn and dannonsarisa at the LA Zoo. On sunday we're going to be doing boardgaming with steuard chalgaryn and thaisa.

Next weekend i and hopefully shelleycat will be going to the ABL party.

The weekend after that we _may_ be doing boardgaming at Gameology with ConGirl and her SO.

And the weekend after _that_ is Anime Expo :)

And right now i should be doing laundry. But my cat is on my lap, and that's a good enough reason not to move for now, right? ;)

You should be able to take the glasses into a frame shop and get them fixed depending on how broken they are. Your eye doc won't know squat about fixing your frames though.

Is a frame shop just a place that sells frames? Because my optometrist does that too.

Yep a frame shop sells frames. Normally even ones that are attached to optometrists operate separately so you probably don't need an appointment to go in to speak with them.

Second catbird's suggestion. Also maybe use a backup pair if the crookedness starts bothering you. After I rolled over mine when I fell asleep, I couldn't adjust them back to the way they were and so I stopped wearing that pair. But if you wear them for a while, your eyes will adjust to it, though it might hurt a bit or slide more since it's sitting on your nose right now. So it's up to you.

You could just take advantage of needing to fix the glasses to go see the doctor, you know ;)

The place next to the Pancake House in Redondo repaired my glasses for free.
