Most sunglasses put too much pressure on...

Most sunglasses put too much pressure on my nose and give me a headache. The Smith Optic Factor Max sunglasses have worked well for me, but I scratched one of the lenses. A replacement is $60 and it seems I would do better to just buy new sunglasses, but the Factor Max has been discontinued by Smith Optic and I think I need to find another option. Anyone know a similar/good option for replacement or know a less expensive way to replace one brown, polarized lens on the Factor Max line?

you would be hard pressed to find a smith polarized lens by itself for less than that...especially for a discontinued line. in my experience, its much less of a hassle to just get new glasses. or you could call the Smith customer service line at 800 635-4401.

I lost my Factor Max glasses and was in the same boat hoping to find a replacement that works as well for me. The Parallel Max was the ticket. The fit and feel is very similar and they have worked well for me. I have since found my Factor Max glasses so i was able to make a good side by side comparison. I actually favor the Parallel Max now. I broke one of the lenses and had to buy a replacement.
