its a nice idea.. its cumbersome to wear glasses over glasses.. no matter how light/comfortable the design is.. i'd pay extra on a once off basis for a prescription pair.. would just mean you wouldnt be able to share with anyone else.. but thats probably a good thing!

I've luckily dodged this bullet as the only member of my family not to require corrective eyewear - but based on them - don't you need a new prescription every so often to counteract changes to your vision?

I've been wearing the same pair of glasses for about nine years now. And I'm still not in need of a different prescription.

This sounds nice, but I probably wouldn't go for it right now seeing how it's got to be pretty expensive. And wearing the Samsung glasses over my own really isn't much of a bother at all. Maybe sometime down the road.

Actually, I'd probably rather spend the money on a nice pair of prescirption sun glasses.
Is it February yet!?

I see that Samsung is selling their prescription 3D glasses. How exactly does this work? From the summary I see that "Viewers who require corrective lenses can now order prescription lenses that clip on to the frames of the SSG-3300CR" Does anyone here own these?

Both my fiancee and I wear prescription glasses (my fiancee wears them all the time as she's blind without them, but I only have to wear them when I'm driving or watching tv) and to be honest we have never felt uncomfortable wearing the Samsung 3d glasses over the top of them. Though my pair of prescription glasses are made by Oakley, they are made of titanium and are frameless so they very light weight. My fiancee's prescription glasses are a bit bigger and heavier, but she still doesn't have any problems wearing the Samsung glasses over the top. It's certainly a good idea by Samsung, but I personally would still rather wear their 3d glasses over my prescription glasses as it doesn't bother me at all.
Setup:
Panasonic th-p65vt60a tv, Sony str-da5300es avr/pre-amp, Emotiva xpa-2 & xpa-5 amps, Dali Concept: 10 (fronts) 2 (rears x4) & centre speakers, 2x SVS pb13-ultra subwoofers, Oppo bdp-105 Blu-ray player/DAC (region free), Onkyo c-s5vl sacd player, Panasonic dmr-bwt835 1tb hdd/Blu-ray recorder, Xbox One & 360 250gb s, Sony PS4 & PS3 60gb, Cyron lighting & htw1000 controller, Samsung s2 1tb hdd, SurgeX sx1210rli surge protector/power conditioner x3, Logitech Harmony 1100i remote

It doesn't bother me that much, but since the glasses are going for around $110, I wanted to know if anyone here had used them. I can't find ANY reviews on the web for them :\
