I've clipped my mirror(s) onto a pair of ordinary tinted safety/shooting glasses.
I would recommend that you have a pair of glasses just used for riding with these attached. I had been removing and storing them inside my helmet between rides, but they are thin and fell through the vents in my helmet and were lost.
I've looked at several mirrors over the past year, and tried one or two. But I usually ended up riding without a mirror since they were such a pain in the butt. They jiggled around too much to be useful and I was constantly fiddling and adjusting so I could see anything at all. If the mirror is plastic everything is blurry, if it is glass it weighs a ton and pulls your sunglasses down your nose.
But this mirror is about as good as I can imagine a bike mirror being. The acrylic mirror is both lightweight and optically accurate, and is plenty big enough for a wide field of view. If you position it just right, you can see everything behind you with a slight turn of your head.
The attachment mechanism is simple and holds tight. It takes about 30 seconds to move it to another pair of sunglasses and readjust the angles. The springy bits are covered with grippy plastic which keeps the mirror in place and provides less snag points to grab your helmet straps when you put your glasses on or off.
The s steel and brass frame and swivel system is infinitely adjustable, but provides enough resistance that it has never moved out of adjustment, even at high speeds on rough roads.
And, to top it all off, it is less expensive than most of the other mirrors I have looked at. It is a simple, well-thought design, without useless complexity or expense. Beautiful.
My recent bar-mount mirror was fine, but gave me less area of view and was not steady--plus easy to damage.
I bought 2 and mounting on normal frames was easy. I have sunglasses with a more rounded frame surface that made mounting more difficult, but most frames have a flat surface at the sides, so I would not expect problems most of the time.

Also, this takes some practice. You have to turn your head to swing the mirror in left-right and up-down arcs in order to see more than a tiny bit of what is behind you---trying to see more broadly by moving your eyes around will only make you dizzy or distract your attention from the road ahead. On-the-bike practice, because you are scanning behind you, may make you overlook something relevant (like a truck) in front of you!
Consider having walking practice sessions in your home, in your yard, or at the mall. Start out sitting in a chair. Scan the space behind you. Start out getting an overview, then work to find a small object on a shelf or table behind you. You will quickly amaze yourself at the amount of info you quickly can get with a quick glance in the mirror. Walk around your yard or neighborhood, scanning behind you. Then try it while riding in a safe low-traffic area. Eventually, you will be comfortable and will not like pedaling without your mirror. It really does enhance safety.
This specific product appears likely to last a long time. Appears tougher than the plastic models I have always used previously, but which break from fatigue (or because I sat on them) eventually.
