    Anybody else have this problem with their juliets? One lens fits fine, but the other rattles around in the frame. I took it to the o store to see if they had any lenses that fit, but the only way they fit was if they took off the gasket and I don't want to do that because it is obviously there for a reason. I was thinking silicone could solve the problem, but I don't want to mess them up.

    I have a pair or two that do it. Not much that can be done as far as I can tell. I wouldn't put anything in there to take up the space tho. Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

    Could lead to stress cracks right? Or distortion because the lens could get bent slightly?

    I just wouldn't want my frames caked with silicone or any other medium that doesn't belong there. Try taking the lenses out and reinstalling and tightening the t6 more but be cautious you don't strip it.

    I tightened it as much as it could go without stripping it.

    I had this problem with my carbon Juliet. I took the lens out and put it back in with a little readjusting. After tightening up, it held without rattling. Perhaps a jostle will help.

    It seems like it happened over time though because the original lenses used to fit fine, but now they don't.

    Maybe I could put a very thin layer in the edge of the lens and let it dry there overnight, then install. Or is that still a bad idea?

    They're your glasses, do what you feel is necessary. The next pair of lenses might not fit so well tho and I'm sure it'll be a pain in the ass to scrape the silicone out.
