    If you need glasses to see, then you could just use a fine line of glue to the edges of the 3D red & blue 'lenses' ... & glue them onto the actual lenses in the frame.

    I also wonder why you removed the lenses from the glasses instead of just taping the edges of the 3D lenses to the actual lenses .... either to the inside or outside of the lenses. Inside would be more aesthetically pleasing, however it might be more comfortable to wear them with the 3D lenses on the outside of the frames.

    I don't know where people use 3D lenses these days .. Is it just a LONG time since I've been to the pictures, or are they used with some computer games?

    All in all it's a terrific idea .... I wouldn't have come up with these suggestions without your original Instructable to jump off ... :) Thanks. I'll remember this if I even get to see something where they are used. I've only seen anything with 3D glasses once, and that was at a brife demonstration at Movieworld on the Gold Coast in Qld, Australia. I really loved them ... until a spider was jumping out at me!!
