This is, to put it mildly, suboptimal. It’s horribly inconvenient for people who already wear prescription eyeglasses to expect them to just be totally cool putting on another pair of glasses over their glasses so they can see through the 3D glasses while they see through their myopia-correcting lenses. They’re cumbersome, get dirty from popcorn grease, often have to be angled perfectly on your face to keep the image from going blurry, and they look ridiculous.
