The first glasses were worn by the monks in the monasteries in the middle ages. They were constantly reading manuscripts in poor light and found that their eyesight deteriorated badly. An Italian monk named Salvino degi Armati invented the first pair of spectacles, they were metal and were held together by rivets.

Because the eye is round the first spectacles were round in shape and made to perch on your nose. They had no arms.

In the 18th century a London optician named Edward Scarlett developed the first temple arms and the form and shape of modern day spectacles began to take shape.

Many famous figures in history have been blighted with sight problems. Napoleon was short sighted and wore scissor glasses that were in fashion at the time in France.
