Peripheral prescription preference

Hey... if I'm the first guy to think this up then I can honestly and with a straight face tell people that I have single-handedly won the new clear arms race!
  [vote for,

My wife got new glasses the other day. They're cute and she likes them but the arms of the frame must be at least a centimeter thick so she doesn't seem to notice as much going on around her as before and our kitchen ballet routine is no longer going to land us a guest spot on Dancing With The Chefs.
For myself I've always relied heavily on my peripheral vision and it's kept me from getting my nose broken and my block knocked off a few times now, as you can clearly see by just how dang pretty I still am.
Being nearsighted I can only see clearly for about a couple of meters unassisted and I prefer more of a John Lennon style of frame so as to keep my peripheral vision as unobstructed as possible.

To this end I propose prescription arms for glasses.

I think it would be great to be able to rely on my distance peripheral vision as well as close quarters vision and I can't believe nobody has made these yet.

       If one were to add prisms to the prescription arms, perhaps peripheral vision could be transposed to central vision.   

       ... or rearward views could be transposed to peripheral... hey, that's how mother did it!

       Do these arms grow longer as your focal length increases?

       Peripheral vision is so out-of-focus anyway that I think just transparent arms (or very thin arms) would work just as well.
