Where DO You Get Spectacles ~ Glasses Like This Then?
A friend said I should show Dennis Taylor the famous snooker player with his special spectacles – with the lens raised that extra inch so that when one looks down the cue, you’re still looking through the lens (it helps to see properly when you play this sport – like many others!) and the lens is re-centered in front of the pupil.
Our friends at Premiere Optical (again!) said that they made them. To be honest I don’t know if it’s this pair in the picture – though they say they made him many pairs, apparently. Nor do I know in this display of general ignorance whether Dennis was the first or one of the first to have special snooker glasses. Does anyone out there know? You can get a custom pair of snooker specs at Premiere (44 (0)1255 424100).
Or you can now buy them on line nowadays. The pair on the right are avaiable at Glasses 4 Less for £55.95 including lenses – which are 52mm high!
