Or even worse, when a pair of ill-fitting frames were hooked on to comic characters so that others could have a dig at them as they fumbled and tripped. Let bygones be bygones. From a liability to an asset, a sore thumb to a cool accessory, optical frames have travelled through sneers and design-stagnation.
Today, being a 'specy' is the in thing, so much so that even those who can do without one are wearing zero powered frames just to look cool and intellectual. All thanks to international designer labels and prominent Indian retailers who have come up with snazzy designs and jazzy colours and popularised the concept of sporting spectacles.
