it’s not easy applying make-up when you are wearing glasses (especially in the car – only kidding!) its not just mascara and eye-liner that causes trouble but getting the right all-over level consistency of creams and foundation and powder is also hindered.

now with the use of deely-bobber technology, you can have free-floating lenses as far from your face as necessary and with the aid of tension screws at the base of each antennae, they can be as flexible as you choose.

they come in all colours and lens shapes, in fact, they look quite fun, you may decide to keep them on all day.

       This could be a helpful tool for the astigmatic among us. I can't see close, nor far. So the makeup is really minimal.

       Good. Bespeckled women everywhere thank you. Only problem is ... it'll mess up your hair. ; ) +

       "oddly" is definitely the right word there, po!

       I was just pondering something like this today for bespectacled (wo)men getting their hair cut/styled and checking on the progress, but with a different support. Great minds think more.

       Ya' gotta take a trade-off somewhere, [k_sra].

       you can comb in the dark!

       Maybe [K_sra] if the lenses were permanently screwed into your forehead then you wouldn't have to worry about mussing up your hair, but no, you wouldn't like my idea better now would you? This idea is wonderful, [Po] even for those who just want to wear them as a fashion thing. +

       I am concerned about the bopping nature of these devices. Can you really get on the make up straight while the lenses bop around and distort the picture?

       Sorry. I'm already screwed in the head. 8^ )

       suction pads might be gentler...
