    I have one ear a little lower than the other. I'm trying to find
    something to fit on my ear piece to make my glasses even. It bothers me
    and I keep fidling with them. Does anyone know of anything?

    Thats what they say and have tried more than once. It still bothers me
    and others have complained also, that is why I want something to put on
    the ear piece.

    You can pretty much superglue anything soft (e.g., silicon) to the ear
    piece. Or, you could have plastic surgery on one of your ears if you're
    bothered that much.

    You'd think, wouldn't you.

    I have the same problem. I just bend one earpiece. It looks ugly, but
    since my film career is already foundering I figure it doesn't matter
    all that much :) I'd rather have the fitter do it -- if they break it
    they'll have to give me a new one -- but it's easier to just do it myself.

    A 6 inch coach-screw into the side of the head works. You then tie the
    frame with fuse-wire and it will stay in place.

    Alternativly, get the bloody glasses adjusted. It is not hard, I manage
    to do it a few times each week. If your OD can't do it, they should
    find someone who can, it is not that difficult.
