When I first bought my passive 3D TV, I wasn't sure how much use I would get out of the 3D side of things. But the TV was cheap, and the 2D picture was good, so I went for it. As it happens, I have become quite fond of things 3D, to the extent of even buying a 3D camera. But as someone who wears glasses, I began to find wearing the 3D glasses over the top of my specs tiresome. So I ordered a cheap pair of clipons. These have served me quite well for a year or so, but when I saw that the price of prescription 3D glasses had come down, I thought I had to get a pair. So a few weeks ago, I ordered some RealD compatible glasses from Optics3D. They arrived today, and I am impressed. The frames have good quality (i.e. plastic, not film) RealD lens in them, and the prescription lens are mounted behind them. Which means should your prescription change, you only need to replace the insert. It took a few minutes to get used to them on my nose - my habit is to push glasses right back onto my face, but the inserts being that bit closer to my eyes, meant my long girlie lashes got in the way. However, once I found a comfortable position, they were fine. The first thing I noticed was that these seemed to let more light in than the cheap specs. I had always considered the "tint" of RealD specs to be entirely due to the polarisation, but these glasses definitely felt less like I was wearing sunglasses indoors. This is good, as trips to the kitchen and loo no longer require a change of glasses! On viewing 3D on my TV, the picture did seem marginally brighter, and very clear, as you would expect when not viewed through easily scratched polarised film. I bought this glasses mostly for comfort, but the difference in clarity is quite marked. Of course, these glasses will also be good for the local cinema, as well as my passive 3D TV, and they don't look particularly outlandish. In fact, I would probably wear them to the cinema, rather than juggling two pairs of specs in the stalls. I plumped for Optics3D's cheapest option, which cost 50 quid. Which is not trivial, I know, but I feel I've come away with a bit of a bargain.
