Off Topic: Pierced Glasses

James Sooy and Oliver Gibson have come up with Pierced Glasses - the most minimalist eyewear since the Pincenez glasses that clip onto your nose was invented in the 1840's.

For those who think that Pierced Glasses are dangerous or crazy, listen to what the creators say about other surgical alternatives to glasses: "Paying ... to have someone cut your eyes and shoot a laser in them (just so you don’t have to wear glasses) seems extreme to me…"

My favorite extreme eyewear from science fiction are Molly Million's surgically inset glasses from William Gibson's 1984 novel Neuromancer. The glasses consisted of the lenses only, which were implanted so as to seal off her eye sockets completely. Her tearducts were rerouted to empty into her throat, as I recall.

Boy - and I thought that eyeball tattooing was hard ...
