So sorry to read about the difficulties you are having with glasses. I've been in glasses 50 years & do remember very well glasses being so heavy! I am near sighted, have astigmatism & wear a progressive no line bifocal. Call it vanity or whatever, I did not want a line showing up on my lenses. Thankfully with the new technology I buy the best plastic lenses made on the market & yes they are pricey but worth it. I wear what is called a half frame, half metal & half plastic & they are very light. I've learned over the years how critical it is to have a proper fitting pair of frames. I have a small face, my temple length is 135, anything over that is too big & will increase the weight of the glasses.
I go to an eye dr for my vision testing & many years ago I went into Target one day to their optical department. I had a lady spend over an hour with me & she found the perfect fitting frame for me. I had never had that happen in all of my years of wearing glasses. My Target carries high end frames which I buy, the cheap ones do not hold up or hold their shape well.
Have you checked to see if you are a candidate for the laser surgery to correct your vision? That may be an option for you.
I hope you can find something that works.
