351059000 Lens pivots in and out of optical path 3
20090073376Flip up safety, magnificaition or reading glasses - The invention relates generally to the field of reading glasses with safety as a factor in many cases where these glasses are used during the work day. The lenses are attached to a frame which is not a typical frame for glasses and frame and lenses are attached to each other by a small hinge which allows the lenses to flip up and down without removing the glasses and frame. Unlike standard reading glasses that you take off when not reading, they can become lost or broken while not on your head during work. The important feature is that while quite often a worker has one hand occupied with tools, the other hand is free to flip the lenses up or down without removing the glasses.03-19-2009

20080239234Fly-wing rotating lens eyeglasses - A spectacle frame and lens arrangement whereby each lens rotates up and out of the field of vision by pivoting about a central pivot mechanism in the frame which keeps the lenses within the same plane both in the park and use positions. This differs from traditional flip-up spectacles that operate by causing the lens to fold up and forward from the user's eyes or outward to each side. This is accomplished by a simple squeeze of the frame and lower edge of a single lens between the forefinger and thumb of one hand.10-02-2008

20100053544GLASSES WITH TWO POSITION LENSES - Glasses such as bifocals, which have refractive lenses which are rotatable at least between two positions. A manual control rotates the lenses such that if bifocal, the relatively small, high magnification zone of each lens can be moved to a high position opposed to the usual low position of fixed bifocals. The user is spared the necessity of holding the head at an awkward posture when viewing overhead objects.03-04-2010
351056000 Lorgnette type 1
20110170048Vision assist device with an integral carabiner and optional light - A vision assist device without side temples comprises a frame for holding a first vision assisting lens with a carabiner clip that extends from the frame for use as a handle. The carabiner clip has at least 3 sides, at least one of said sides including a bar with spring biasing to define a closed clip position. The carabiner clipped device can be used as reading glasses, a magnifying glass, lorgnette and/or binoculars. Optionally, the carabiner includes a switch-activated light. One preferred embodiment uses overlapping lenses to provide twice the vision correction when folded closed.07-14-2011
351065000 Pince-nez type (including pince-nez bridges, nose grips and nose pads therefor) 1
20120062830LIGHTED GLASSES - Lighted glasses are provided that selectively project light forwardly of the glasses while also having a thin profile by avoiding the use of temple arms. The lighted glasses include a central light mount and a pair of lenses connected to the light mount by resilient arms. The arms allow a user to pull the lenses generally away from each other to fit on a wearer's nose. The light mount is configured to house a light assembly that includes a battery, a light source, and a switch to control operation of the light source.03-15-2012
