If you wear perscription glasses and enjoy 3D film, you've been there. The choice: just wear the 3D glasses and give up details in the movie, or wear both and suffer through the awkward look and feel of stacked glasses.
No more! Here is the fifteen minute and virtually (pun unfortunetly intended) free solution. Low skill level required.
Enjoy, and thanks for reading!

Step 1: Remove Ear Rests

The ear rests on your standard 3D glasses pop off pretty easily. Flex slowly away from the glasses, once you get past about 160 degrees they should come off. If this prosess separates part of the front housing from the 3D glasses, gentle pressure will click it back in.
Save the ear rests! They will become the rest of the parts you need for this project.

Your first two pieces will be above and below the nose portion of the perscription glasses. You will need one lenght slightly shorter than wire/plastic between the lenses, and a second piece that is slightly narrower than the space between the two lenses, bellow the nose portion of your perscription glasses.

To break your pieces, score the desired length all the way around of the ear rests of the 3D glasses with a box knife. bend gently until plastic snaps at score line. If plastic does not break, score again along the same line more deeply and re-attempt. Repeat for second piece.
I recommend trimming any sharp edges with the box knife, but since most raw ends will be covered this is optional.

Brilliant! I've only tried one 3D viewing and found the glasses almost impossible.
