Show how you carry your eyeglasses or sunglasses. I usually use the cases that they come in, which are usually cheaply made and not easy to carry.

Do you have a case with a clip?
Something durable?
Something versatile that can carry various sizes & shapes?

Made this for me then my daughter adopted it.... but she has left it dormant so I am about to reclaim it! Mean time I just use a hard clamshell case and carry them (reading glasses) in my pack in transport and my breast pocket during the day when not on my face. Sunglasses go in my car.

I also use the cheapie case that came with my glasses, and swap eyeglasses / prescription sunglasses in the same case.  If in the car, I use the built-in glasses case which is part of the roof console. Again, swapping eyeglasses (leaving the car) / sunglasses (when driving).

I do basically the same thing. A bit of a PITA though. Why hasn't someone come up with a better carry solution???

I have found my perfect eyeglass case, the "Nite Ize Rugged Optics Case". I clip on or in my EDC bag, well built.

Nice...I found this case on Amazon and was going to ask for a review here! I'll pick one up...

You can use one of those microfiber cloth cases has an added layer to protect the lenses before putting them in a case.

 

My favourite practical case by far has been the Hazard Mil-Pod because of its multi-point attachment choices:

My favourite "bomb-proof" water and dust resistant case is the Tactical Tailor Universal Hardcase - which comes in different sizes, are lined, and can hold other things instead of sunglasses.

 

Small:

Medium:

Large:

I sometimes EDC a nice hard case I got from a local 99 cent-type store. I tend to keep an open mind with my EDC searches because you may never know what useful things you might find anywhere.

 

It's also about context, when I want a multi-functional case or a minimalist one or if I'm concerned about theft, not to have a case hanging out in the open.

I go through a good 4 pairs of glasses a year because of my work and generally hard play. At $400 a pop it was getting a little out of control, so I started buying from $39 .com. I now buy them in bulk of 6 pairs once a year and done. The case they come in are nicer than my $400 glases were, and that's what I use.
