I have Silhouettes too and spoke to Cary Optometric about a month ago. They don't make lenses on site, they send them out, but they will fit them into Silhouette frames if you can live without them for 10-14 days.

My glasses are my only pair so I can't do that. I'm considering going super-light non-Silhouette for my new frames and then keeping my current ones as a spare, as much as it pains me to spend that kind of money. I used to have a guy who could fit the lenses the same day, so it wasn't a problem. I don't think I'm going to find that locally now, so it may be time to ditch Silhouettes as much as I like them.

They quoted approximately $500 for lenses because I want lightweight, anti-scratch, anti-glare, transitions, and progressives.

Mike, a zillion years ago someone at Triangle Eye Institute told me they could make lenses for my frames, but I chose to get some different frames instead - might be worth giving them a call to see if they still do this. I think I went to the Brier Creek one at the time. I just needed stronger lenses than I had in those older frames.
