Spectacles, also called glasses, are a pair of lenses worn over the nose for the purpose of augmenting one's sight.
Spectacles were made specifically to correct faulty eyesight for both near and far-sighted individuals. As well as being needed by some for seeing their surroundings, spectacles were also used for reading. Bernard Burns wore wire-rim bifocals due to his own poor eyesight and Evelyn Carnahan wore reading glasses when performing close-up work and when reading, though she did not fully need them..
