I recently bought a W1070 and though about getting a pair of 3D glasses.

However, I'm one of these near-blind fellows that cant see a clear picture past a few centimeters in front of me, so I'm always wearing glasses. I have issues with contact lenses, so those aren't an option.

 

My local theater uses polarized glasses for the 3D effect, so I got myself these handy clips:



 

Is there maybe something available for my DLP projector? Or are there good shutter glasses out there, that I can wear comfortably over my normal glasses?

 

Or better yet: Is there a polarizer I can mount in front of the projector. or do I need one of these expensive silver screens for that to work as well?

These glasses always seem awfully small (the see-through part), especially if I have to wear them further from the eyes due to my normal glasses...

 

Isn't there something more fitting out there?

The Blicks are bigger than they appear.

I can easily wear them over my presecription lenses

without any issues.

If you have an extra pair of prescription lenses there is another solution. Take them out and put them in a pair of 3D glasses with a cavity that the lenses can fit in such as the Blick or these cheaper bulky 3DTV Corp glasses on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/DLP-LINK-3D-Glasses-Projectors-Mitsubishi/dp/B004G2VJM6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394127828&sr=8-1&keywords=3dtv+corp+dlp-link+3d+glasses


Using a very very small piece of scotch tape at the very edges of the top and the bottom of the lenses (anything but scotch tape will have undesirable results) insert them into the glasses and make it look neat. The amount of tape will be small, and only on the very bottom and top of the inside of glasses, so if your results are like mine noone else will notice at all, and you will only have to wear one pair of glasses instead of 2


If you need cheap lenses try zennioptical.com where you can get a full set of glasses for less than $10 and then take the lenses out and use them to fit your 3D glasses. You just have to enter your prescription in when you order it's easy and fast and the glasses have been suprisingly good quality

http://www.zennioptical.com/730621-stainless-steel-full-rim-frame-with-acetate-temples.html $6.95 (get the anti-reflective coating for another $5)


Or these:

thats a great idea! i think ill do that. though, I guess i have to find a german or at least european supplier instead for my glasses :)

 

Might as well ask my local optician if he can fit them in perfectly :D
