I've spent a bit of time reading about tvs and noticed a deal on a panasonic P60ST30 nearby which I could pick up in time for the superbowl. I decided to do a little bit of research and from what I can tell the different glasses don't work across different brands?
While this doesn't really bother me (I'd only have one 3d tv in the house anyway) , it seemed as if I was only able to find glasses that would fit over my glasses for samsung tvs.

So in the end my question is , for panasonic tvs, what options are there for people who require corrective lenses? and what direction should I go from here? Am I missing something?

I mean , I've thought about contacts but they do bug my eyes a bit. This seems like silly reasoning to change over simply to get 3d on a tv...

sorry if this thread exists somewhere but the redundancy of search terms and corrective lenses has me at a point that I've actually come out of lurking to post.

I'm guessing you haven't tried contacts lately. Acuvue Advance and Pure Vision HD lenses are both terrific. You simply do not feel them in your eyes.

You can get clip ons for passive sets. It's what I have, love it, especially cause I can watch everything converted to 3D. Plus you can use them at RealD 3D theaters. Glasses are way better than contacts IMO. I wear blended trifocals and have used the eye protection of glasses many times. BTW I've read glasses are IN. If you think contacts bother you, wait until you use those flickering active glasses. Been there, not doing that anymore.

I just wear the 3D glasses over my prescription. I remember wearing the 3D glasses at the theater and they weighed too much as I kept having to take them off and rub the bridge of my nose, but the 3rd gen Panny glasses I have weigh so little that they don't bother me at all even after several hours of playing GT5.

I explained what I did here:

Although my instructions are for Epson glasses, it shouldn't be difficult to do the same for other brands.

I must say , this has been ... enlightening and far more complex than I'd ever imagined when I first thought 'wow that's a nice tv , and it includes 3d!'

thank you all for your input , you have been very helpful

Theres always more than one way to skin a cat!
I went the easier route and got some PS3 3d glasses for $39.99 last week at BB. They work well with my glasses. They work pretty much with any 3d TV that uses IR for the 3d glasses.
