Glare-proof Glasses From 1932

Anyone who doesn't chuckle at this image ad for glare-proof glasses is dead inside, possibly due to childhood trauma or too much Suddenly Susan reruns.

HEADLIGHT glare from approaching cars is practically eliminated by the cup-shaped aluminum shields shown on the left, which fasten onto regular spectacle frames.

Holes are cut a little to the right of the apex of the cones, which are one inch deep. When meeting a car, driver turns his head slightly to the right. This automatically cuts off the glare from the lights and enables him to watch the side of the road.

Holes in the sides of the cups aid wearer in watching cars at intersections.

If you're looking for current eye-wear we'll laugh at in 70 years, might we suggest the Oakley Over the Tops?
