The first reading glasses were worn by the monks
In the monasteries in the middle ages the monks 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.
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.
The form and shape of modern day spectacles began to take shape.
Napoleon was short sighted and wore scissor reading glasses all the rage at the time in France.
