Geeky Eyeglasses for Sale

Wow, those are some seriously geeky frames!

I had never heard the phrase "corneal micro lenses" before, but apparently that was the original term for contact lenses. Sounds very cyberpunk even today. I think we should all start telling people, "Yes, I have corneal micro lenses in place."

"Aphakia" was another NEW word.

England and America are two countries separated by the same language. Shaw, Wilde, or Churchill. take your pick.

But, it's the Scots that have the worse problem with eyesight as is proven in this photo.

Never cared for that style of "winged" glasses. Had a granddaughter come to visit recently wearing some. She doesn't need glasses, they're just plain lenses meant for style, in this case geeky style. Every generation seems to borrow another's strange styles to adopt for their own.
