Less obvious uses of Eyeglasses your optician didn’t tell you about

Most historians believe that eyeglasses were first developed in Italy, 700 years ago. Similarly sunglasses, in their rudimentary form can be traced back to the 14th century.

However, nowadays, these accessories are ubiquitous in our lives – spectacles to improve our vision, and sunglasses to protect us from the glare of the sun. But these are not the only functions they perform. For example, centuries ago, Chinese judges routinely wore smoke-colored quartz lenses to conceal their expressions during the proceedings of the court.

Similarly, there are other less common uses of these lifesavers that you need to be made aware of:

  • ALTER EGO – Your most essential gear for leading a life as Clark Kent by the day and Superman by night!

  • DEFENCE AGAINST THE NEURALYZER – If you’re also a firm believer of the existence of ‘Men in Black’, just like me, a pair of good old black sunglasses can come in handy – unless you want to delete that memory of you tripping in front of your crush, that is.
