Crack in plastic lens

    I purchased a new pair of glasses with plastic lenses a few weeks ago
    from a local optician. They are tinted gray, AR coated etc. They are
    rimless. Quite expensive.

    This morning when cleaning them I noticed, what appear to be, stress
    cracks on both lenses right where they are screwed into the center bar
    that goes across the nose. The cracks are in the shape of a
    "starburst". They're small now but I fear they'll get bigger and
    spread across the lens.

    When I bring them in, should I demand my money back or order new
    lenses? What are the chances that the cracks will, in fact get

    I've been handling the glasses very carefully, so what would be the
    cause of the cracks. I'm guessing that the screws were overtightend.

    Thanks for advice.

    Depends. Do you want your money and no glasses (if you get your money back,
    you will have to give the glasses back) or do you want the glasses. They
    should be under warranty and replaced at no charge.
