    What if you forget you have them on and snag 'em when you're putting on a sweater? OUCH!

    Tired Of Glasses Slipping, Man Pierces Nose With Metal Bar

    POSTED: 11:26 am EDT April 6, 2005

    DALLAS -- Artist James Sooy will go to extremes to prevent his glasses from slipping down his nose.



    He's had his schnoz pierced with a 1-inch metal bar. Now, the Texas artist hopes other eyeglass wearers will see the light. He and a friend plan to market the glasses piercing bar, for $75 to $100 each. The lenses screw right into the bar that is inserted through the bridge of the nose.

    And Sooy said getting your nose pierced doesn't hurt as much as you might think. He added that with your glasses permanently attached to your nose, there's nothing to rub against your ears

    Is it the air or water? There has to be some environmental reason why the human species seems to be getting stupider and stupider.

    Thanks for the summary (unknown links at work are not worth the risk). I saw this design recently (online). It's very very disturbing. I'll sitck with my contacts.

    Kinda reminds me of the "Optigrab" from the movie "The Jerk"

    Wonder if it will have the same long term effect? [​IMG]

    I think I will simply put up with taking the gargantuan effort to push my glasses back into position with my finger. If anyone comes near me with a sharp or pointy object, I will assume that they are looking to have said sharp or pointy object shoved sideways where the sun doesn't shine.

    Doesn't look too bad, but what's up with that hairdo?
