A really good value

These eyeglass frames appear to be the standard among 18th Century living history reenactors who don't want the trouble and expense of buying originals. I see them everywhere. Inexpensive and well made, a local optometrist was able to fit then with my prescription lenses. Steel wool and lacquer thinner softened the shiny finish, and wrapping the bridge with string added comfort. These sturdy eyeglasses are a good dollar value. That said, as a flintlock shooter, I wish the lenses were a little larger to provide more protection between the pan flash and my eyes. Review by Morgan (Posted on 7/8/2017)
