As always let me say again, I am glad those of you that our viewing my blog enjoy the content, and I'm glad you're leaving comments, that was the concept from day one.
So thanks for your participation.

Today's posts should be fun!
On the last post someone had left the comment saying how they enjoyed the blog, and what did I think about the new “pierced eyeglasses”.
Well, I have been in this business almost 18 years, and I like to think that I keep up on all of the latest trends, but I have to admit I had never heard of “pierced eyeglasses”until this comment asking about them.
Check out the photos below:

The person that left the comment also left a link to another web site where the pierced eyeglasses were pictured.

The person that invented these is an artist, and said he was tired of his glasses slipping down his nose and that is why he invented these.
Now call me old-fashioned but I think this is about the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen.
As an optician I do not think this is very practical at all.
I suppose it could be my age, and if you are a young person you may think it is cool since so many young people seem to be piercing things these days, but again I don't think this is very practical even from a cool, hip fashion standpoint.
From a professional standpoint if you're having trouble with your glasses slipping down your nose,
A. get a frame that properly fit's, or
B. get contact lenses

What do you think?
Are they cool or crazy

As always, thanks for stopping by, please feel free to leave comments.
