Your backhand is pretty good

but the size he made worked for me
i will try to get a pic today of me with the glasses on and post it later so you can see them
Yes, I also used Bill Curran. The first pair was with progressive lens. I was looking completely over the top. The replacement pair was without progressive lens and I still looked partially over the top. With both pairs of glasses, I also had a distorted view of the balls that can best be described as seeing doubles.

FWIW, Ray Ban makes "Shooters" frames that sit high on the nose for shotgunners. Pretty sure that's what I have on in the poster photo. They work for dove hunting etc and if the progressive portion were at the top should work for pool.

I have the RayBan. My optician adjusted the nose pads slightly to have them seat little higher. I'm using progressive lens. They are excellent(for me).
