The Invention of eyeglasses
Also called eyeglasses ,spectacles, or specs (informal) – are frames bearing lenses worn in front of the eyes, normally for vision correction or eye protection. Other types of glasses may be used for viewing visual information or simply just for aesthetic or fashion values.
Historical types of glasses include the pince-nez, monocle, lorgnette, and scissors-glasses.
