    I'm retired after 40 years in the banking industry. After I retired I went back to college for one year to get my degree. My mother is very ill, as well as she recently got home after surgery. I am taking care of her almost 24/7. Until she had surgery I was a volenteer at a local hospital 15 to 20 hours per week. Until my mother had surgery I helped out at my local church. Now ask me that question again? What do you do?

    Guys our age are usually more worried about constipation than loose lenses.
    Be grateful!

    Your shooting glasses fall out when you shoot? I'd back-off a couple of grains of powder to start....

    You're a riot Steve! Problem now is we can't tell what is true and what you made up.

    Me? I'm a full-time vigilante/troll-monitor. Doesn't pay well, but is a barrel of laughs.

    Steve see if you can slide a piece of waxed paper or tissue between the lens and the frame when the lens fall out, it might not take much but it will keep them in place

    You will just have to experiment with it, but I have fixed quite a few glasses that way

    It sounds like the frames are loose in one or more dimensions. Try to discern in which dimension the looseness is and see what would be needed to tighten the frames up in that dimension. Possibly gently bending more curve back in to the frames in one dimension might be all that is needed. I would email Post 4 and ask them.

    "Pick the lense you like and super glue it." - Preferably directly over your eyes.

    Steve,

    Take a drive to Flugge Optical in Waterford (hwy 36), that's where most Wisc.shooters get theirs. I got my Post 4 glasses there. Ask for Rocky, he'll adjust them for you.
