Pre-emptive repair is in order

Reviewed by One-eye from Flagstaff AZ on Monday, October 8, 2012
Bought a pair several months ago. Within a week one of the lenses fell out, scratching it and making it fairly worthless. I couldn't quite see what the problem was but couldn't seem to fix it, so I put it aside. Silly me, thought this was just a fluke, bought another pair. Within a few weeks a lens fell out. This time I realized the screw that holds the lens was put in without tightening--on both sides. The screw was gone, so I got a lousy replacement that didn't really work. Couldn't use them for weeks. Then decided to cannibalize one from the other pair. It seems to be holding, but I don't quite trust it for travel, etc. without a backup pair. I like the glasses themselves, but the manufacturing and final work was very flaky. So, if you can get a micro-screwdriver and tighten everything first thing, you might have a decent pair of glasses for awhile. This is not the first pair of Bolle's that have had lenses fall out. I won't buy Bolle anymore, but I've managed to make these glasses serviceable.
