Eye Glasses Win By a Nose

CLAY, W.Va. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you’ve just had a nose job and wearing eye glasses is too painful, a West Virginia doctor has a solution that’s right under your nose.

S.S. Jamie, a family practitioner, has invented special glasses that sit on the face, not the nose, after 10 months of healing following his own nose job.

Since patients can’t wear contact lenses or glasses while they recover, Dr. Jamie says his only option was to “put tape on the top of my glasses to hold them to my forehead.”

But the so-called “Couture Glasses” he and his wife developed use the cheekbones, earlobe, and lower part of the nose for support, unlike traditional frames which place painful pressure on the bridge of the nose.

Jamie’s invention is not just for people who have been under the knife like Michael Jackson or Demi Moore. He recommends them to anyone annoyed by indentation marks left by nosepieces.

The patented glasses will be exhibited June 8-11 at the INPEX invention trade show in Pittsburgh.
