A couple pairs of glasses were purchased in order to find one with good eye coverage and a suitable shape for accepting the screen holding adapter. Women's sunglasses seemed the best choice since they offered larger frames.

Screen adapter glued to sunglasses frames

None of the sunglasses frames worked well. Every time the problem was finding just the right angle and trying to glue a piece of plastic was too crude of a method. Aligning the screen in front of the eye was achieved a couple times but tilting the screen to the right angle was not feasible.

Failed attempts on glasses frames

A 3D printed model was devised which would allow each iteration to have a different alignment. This seemed like a good time to start learning a new 3D modeling software but the combination of iterative design and the parametric modeling of OpenSCAD delayed that change. A sketch of the model was done on graph paper. The shaded region, a 3/4 rectangle, represents the holder where the screen will rest.
