I have a need to make a hole in the center of plastic sunglasses.
Drills or hole saws don't seem to work.
What would you suggest?

Your tools are dull. Alternatively, try a heated needle for a small
hole, a piece of hot metal tubing for something larger. Most plastics
are more or less machinable so your technique needs refining.

Without knowing exactly how you are trying and exactly what
you want, it is difficult to offer suggestions.

How big of a hole? Are you drilling slow or fast RPM? Are
you using little or a lot of pressure? In what way does it not seem
to work? What tool are you using? Are you holding the object and
tool securely (like a clamped part while using a drill press?

If the LENSES are actually plastic, try heating a small nail to RED HOT,
then apply it to the lens to melt a small (pilot) hole.
Drill out to correct size later.

Excimer Laser should do the job nicely.

Thank you all for fine suggestions. The glasses are $1 type until I
find the best way to put a 3/4" hole in center. Please don't ask me
what for...I will have to kill you ;) but will reveal the reason
when successful.
I'm inclined to try the heated points first then enlarge with tubing
until the right size is met.\
This means a lot to me and I am grateful for you input. You all may be
participating in a major discovery.

We have a gag set of dark shades that really take people by surprise.
The lenses are "blood shot". making the eyes look really BIG.

What doesn't seem to work? Most any drill will cut plastic, use a
medium speed. So the tip doesn't wander around, apply some masking
tape.

Drill press. Hole saw. VERY gentle feed pressure, very slow
RPM. That's what comes to my mind.

I've actually used conduit KO punches to
put a round hole in plastic. It works
quite well.
