How can I reshape a lens like a pro to better fit my glasses?

I want to reshape this single non-prescription lens I have to fit into these other sun-glasses. I already have a lens that fits into the glasses, but I removed them because they are the wrong color. I have the right color lens(but wrong size) but want to reshape them so they are the same exact size and shape of the wrong-color lens(its a single lens) I removed. How can I do this? What kind of tools can I use or should I just go to an optician?
