Ben Franklin is credited with making the first bifocal glasses about 1760 but glasses have been around for longer than that. I've read that an English philosopher recorded statement about the optical use of lenses around 1268. Eyeglasses were first used in the middle ages in Europe and became in high demand in the 15th century after the printing press was invented.
Today they are very popular. I where glasses at work to protect my eyes, and in the bright sun to help my eyes to see better and I probably could use some to see to read better as well.
Dear Lord, Thank you
