    I got new glasses about six months ago but wear contacts almost every
    single day now. The glasses are way off of their true fit and every
    person I go to to adjust them doesnt adjust them properly as I explain
    to them. Does anyone on this board know of a very good adjuster in the
    New York Metro Area, the closer to JFK the better as I live not too far
    away. Thanks.

    DIY is a possibility. Mild learning curve, and some ordinary
    tools. Big hammer if all else fails.
    Nobody has time for that kinda stuff anymore.

    BTW, how do you explain? What needs to be done to your
    eyeglasses?

    Whenever they adjust the frames to where the nosepads are at an
    identical position they look very asthetically displeasing. Somewhere
    along the line the frames got severly misalinged and just look awkward.
    Is it possible to send them back to the manufacturer, NIke, and have
    them true them back to how they were when they came out of the factory.
    I spent 400 bucks for these glasses with the lenses and feel that I
    should feel pleased with them after several adjustments.

    Your best bet is with the shop that sold you your glasses, six months
    ago, as you say. They have an ethical, if not contractual, responsibility.
    A third party undertakes mainly liability, and might prefer not to touch
    them, particularly if they seem real messed up.

    Through the years, I have learned to make simple adjustments to my
    frames. I think it is worth doing. But I practiced on old frames to start.
    I do not get new frames each time. After a few years of tweaking, they
    can fit pretty well.

    You can wear out your welcome with your Eyecare Professional by
    being fussy about your eyeglasses. They are busy people. Except
    the ones here debating with Aceman and Otis. They are probably not
    too busy.

    Im on vacation now for another month so I cant go back to the original
    place for a while. It just seems that they do not realize the obvious
    flaws. Maybe since they are not receiving a fee for adjusting the
    frames they do not feel that it is a top priority to appease me. In my
    experience I have found that opticians are not particularly the
    brightest people or maybe they just dont give a shit.
