Ouch!Pierced eye glasses by James Sooy

pierced-eye-glasses

Always forgetting your glasses? Not any more, you won’t be, because with these ones will be actually attached to your face.

Yes, as you can see from the image, the frames are attached to a piercing at the bridge of the nose. They’re designed by James Sooy, and cost $75 – $100 (you’ll have to have the piercing done yourself). Oh, and the lenses are held on by magnets, so at least you can take them off before bed, thus minimising the chances of damage to either you or the glasses.

More info can be found here, but tell us: what do you think of this idea?

    Ouch! I don’t think the weight of the glasses would be all too nice on the piercing.

    I can imagine some yobs chasing you with magnets the moment they knew you had these. (I guess it’s just where I live).

    seriously?! if you are that dumb that you can only remember that you need your glasses by piercing them to your face, maybe you should just consider LASIK. good grief.

    Honestly, I suspect there’s not much pain involved, once you’ve got the piercing set.

    I still have this nagging feeling that they’re not a good idea, however. Can you imagine if you got hit in the fact with something, and there’s nothing to keep the edge of the lens from digging into your eye? At least with regular frames, you have to get hit hard enough for the frames to break before that would happen.

    What if you forget to unscrew them when you go to sleep?

    I think that sounds horrifying.

    I would be terrified. I hate things by my eyes, but at least with sunglasses (since I don’t need glasses — yet anyway),I can take them off. Those piercings would be such a distraction to me; I would always notice them. And I pictured someone forgetting to unscrew them and them like breaking in your sleep, either pulling the piercing out or cracking the lens…by your eyes. Glass + eyes = oh noes…

    Definitely not for me, at the point when I will need them.

    Of course, one day you’d break the glasses and find they stopped selling them. Oops!
