For Real3D, I bring my own - I have clip-on 3D glasses. Sony's passive 3D glasses also work very well; the way they were designed, they fit over prescription glasses perfectly.

Default How do people who wear seeing glasses watch 3D?

How do the folk who have to wear seeing glasses due to impaired vision watch 3D? Are there special glasses you buy? It would seem awkward puting the movie theatre issue glasses over the top of your seeing glasses..

I watched BvS just last night. I wore the 3D glasses right over my regular glasses I wear to watch TV or movies. Never bothers me at all. I do the same at home when I watch 3D movies with my DLP projector/screen. Never has bothered me.

To me, that seems awkward and uncomfortable

I guess it depends on the size of your seeing glasses among other things?

Have you tried it? Because you say "it seems...." I can only speak for myself, but I honestly don't even notice I have them both on... I would say, my glasses are average size, but they are light weight, meaning, I don't wear Coke bottles.

OK I really don't have to ask, but I will anyway b/c I must admit I've never heard it used this way before.

If it is, then yes most of the 3D glasses used fit right over my regular eyeglasses. Never considered it out of the ordinary. I'm just surprised if you've seen any number of 3D theatrical movies or theme park 3D shorts that you wouldn't have noted a fairly large number of folks doing it.
I'm saying "seeing glasses" to differentiate them from 3D glasses.

Been to about 5 or 6 3D showings and no I never noticed what you are describing although I'm sure you are correct.

I am going to get my first set of eyeglasses soon. I figure I want to get something where the lens is a bit bigger than average. Will they just sit over those?

Even when wearing 3D glasses it can become a bit uncomfortable, so it seems it will be extra uncomfortable, plus don't you get two sets of arms over each ear?

My wife wears contact lenses to avoid these issues but I can't stand them.

You can get very lightweight frames these days, I don't find wearing two sets of glasses a problem EXCEPT in the Vue cinema chain in the UK. They changed the design of their 3D glasses a couple of years ago so they no longer fit over the top of any of my eyeglasses (all of which came from Specsavers). The problem is at the sides/hinges, the 3D glasses grind against those and can't be made to fit comfortably. I'd have to rip the arms off.

I'm a normal adult, I don't have a giant head or anything, but this caused me major issues a number of times. Never at IMAX, Cineworld, Empire etc but if I'm going to see a 3D film at Vue I need to take some clip-ons (which I don't like) or a rival cinema chain's glasses, all of which are fine. Any glasses branded "IncredibleVue" are useless to me. I complained about it a number of times but not only did they not care, they denied that they shrunk the design of their glasses! Consequently, I always seek to avoid seeing 3D films at Vue cinemas.

But at home I have no trouble fitting my 3D glasses over any of my eyeglasses, it actually helps keep the 3D glasses cleaner too.

I could post exactly the same but I am projector-less. I watch MY 3D discs on my 50" Vizio with the 3D glasses over my eyeglasses with no trouble at all. Of course, I must admit, my eyeglasses are the thin variety.
No problem at all.

I put them over my normal glasses as you can see my avatar that I wear glasses. I have clip-on glasses that are necessary, but I'm good with the latter.

So your 3D glasses are "clip on"? That makes sense to me. Can you tell me where you got them?

I used to always switch to contacts for 3D movies because I was paranoid about this very issue - but over the past couple of years I've switched almost completely to just wearing the 3D glasses over my normal glasses. For me it's generally less uncomfortable and more convenient than taking special care to stop and put in my contacts, make sure they're in snugly without hurting, et cetera. It really doesn't feel that much different than just wearing the one pair as long as they're the light passive 3D glasses.

I also specifically bought glasses with slightly bigger/wider lenses than typical, and RealD glasses and the passives that came with my oldish Vizio 3DTV don't give me any trouble.

I wear glasses and used to put the 3d glasses over them, but the 3D glasses for my home TV are quite uncomfortable over my regular glasses, so I got contact lenses. It is a much better viewing experience that way.

Well, I don't have a 3D setup at home. November 2015, when it was my birthday,me and my family went to a 3D showing of The Peanuts Movie and my local theater had a notice stating that they have clip-on glasses. So when I used them, no distraction at all. I loved them.

I am glad I wasn't the only one confused by he term "seeing glasses".

I only started wearing glasses about 3-4 years ago but in going to 3D movies with my wife she always just put the 3D glasses over her regular glasses, didn't really think it was hard to figure out really.

The only issue I've ever had were when I wear my Nike Kevin Durant frames which are pretty big. I have to remember when I go to the movies to switch them out to my smaller framed glasses. Same thing when watching at home.

Clip On 3D Glasses are just as effective as stand alone.

Of course it's not hard to "figure out".. but to a non glasses wearing person ATM it sure as hell looks awkward and uncomfortable.

But I guess it works for some and does not work for others.

So I am grateful for the advice and shall be seeking out some "clip on" 3D glasses.
