When you go to the eye doctor, they give you prescription to make you a new glasses. To make new glasses takes time. So, they can rent you an adjustable glasses while yours are being made. When you come back you return adjustable glasses and get your own. Then, the adjustable glasses are checked if they are not broken and disinfected to be ready for another customer. It's also good to come out of the doctor with new prescription glasses immediately.

       The widespread availability of this service would incentivise the slowing down of permanent glasses supply.

       Make it a fixed renting fee.

       The best thing is that you can slip whatever onerous 'Terms and Conditions' in the Fine Print and they won't be able to read them until it's too late!

       Not sure this merits an idea of its own so I’ll just stick it here - a social media network with 'friend' suggestions based on closeness of optical prescription. So, I’d be able to find the other person in the world who has the same unusual optical prescription as I do.

       what [hippo] said. The minute I read this I wondered how anyone could wear the same prescription as someone else. My reading number is +4

       I think mine is +4.25 in one eye and +3.5 in the other, plus some astigmatism and then some more correction for my reading glasses...

       I'm not sure about social media network. Usually a prescription also includes distance between pupils. So, to get a good pair on social media network would not be easy.

       I hereby coin the term Opticaloppleganger and I want a nickle every time it is uttered or written.

       I have a similar issue with television ads for hearing aids.
