Glasses, also known as eyeglasses (formal), spectacles or simply specs (informal), are frames bearing lenses worn in front of the eyes. They are normally used for vision correction or eye protection. Safety glasses are a kind of eye protection against flying debris or against visible and near visible light or radiation. Sunglasses allow better vision in bright daylight, and may protect against damage from high levels of ultraviolet light. Other types of glasses may be used for viewing visual information (such as stereoscopy) or simply just for aesthetic or fashion purposes.
Historical types of glasses include the pince-nez, monocle, lorgnette, and scissor or scissors-glasses.
Modern glasses are typically supported by pads on the bridge of the nose and by temple arms (sides)...
As a forever-wearer of glasses, the idea of specs turning into such a fashion accessory bewilders me. I get pangs of jealousy whenever I see a woman who looks really good in glasses in that super-casual, “I woke up like this” kind of way, because... I have a nearsighted prescription of -10. 50 in both eyes (plus a dash of astigmatism), which means that no matter how chic the frames are, the extreme thickness of my lenses will always give my eyes that inevitable Coke-bottle effect, making them... Wearing glasses, when I absolutely need to, makes me feel frumpy and unpresentable. Though I wear contacts in my day-to-day, I will always be a glasses girl at heart — my identity is forever associated with wearing thick lenses. It was around that age I developed amblyopia, also known as the lazy eye, in both eyes.

I have no idea how many times a day I push them back up, but I’m sure it’s a lot, especially when I’m outside in hot weather or on workout days. Nerdwax may be the solution to prevent eyeglass slippage. Nerdwax looks like a tube of lip balm, but it’s a special cosmetic grade formula of beeswax and other natural ingredients that have been designed to keep your glasses from sliding. Just extend the tube, apply a bit on the nose pads or bridge of your glasses and you’re all set to enjoy a few hours or a whole day of your glasses staying right where they belong.

Fashion designers tend to gravitate to certain cities—New York, Milan, Paris. Less likely is Florence, Ala. (or anywhere in Alabama, for that matter).

It’s...

Having tried the latest attempt at the segment, Rokid’s Glass, at CES 2018 this week I’m pretty confident in saying the answer is “kinda, maybe.”At first glance there’s a lot to recommend them. Where most augmented reality wearables – Microsoft HoloLens, Meta’s AR system, and others – look like huge, clunky visors, Rokid’s is more akin to a set of chunky sunglasses....
