Could somebody invent this for me, please?
People with short sight, their eyes look smaller in their spectacles. People with long sight, their eyes look bigger in their spectacles. [Long sight is where you need reading glasses; short sight is where you can see the elephant in the room but not the herd of elephants on the horizon.]
I go to the optician and try on some spectacle frames. Without lenses in them, they look fine. When they come back with my prescription lenses in them, my eyes seem to be a different size. Like they don’t fit my face. Not a big deal, but just a bit — disappointing. Takes the edge off getting new specs.
I can get lenses that go dark — different colours of dark — in bright sunlight. I can get lenses that protect my eyes from the glare of my computer screen. I can get lenses for driving at night and I can even get lenses that won’t reflect my lights if I go on Zoom.
There are bifocals and varifocals, and I can get lenses fitted into goggles and masks for diving, skiing, skydiving, playing sports, looking at elephants, being a superhero. [Not sure about that last one.]
What I can’t get is lenses that make my eyes stay the right size. Lenses that make my eyes look like they fit with the rest of my face.
Could somebody … ?
