Texas man has piercing to permanently place glasses on face


James Sooy was tired of "wrestling with glasses" and decided to have a piercing placed on the upper part of his nose which attached to glasses, so that they were permanently affixed to his face.

I don't know about you, but I like to take my glasses off when I go to sleep. I guess that wasn't an option for Sooy.

James Sooy was tired of wrestling with his eyeglasses and instead of contacts decided to have a post pierced into his face for permanent lenses.

"These, you know they are stuck to my face, with the other ones, if they were pulled, they would just come off real simple," Sooy said. "They're easier to work with and there is no safety risks involved."

Sooy says that LASIK surgery is too expensive, and the piercing "goes with his lifestyle."

I guess the staple gun wouldn't work for him, huh?

Just Damn! To quote your good self.

Well. That was interesting. While it seems like an alternative, I think I'll stick with the contacts.

As far as LASIK goes, it isn't the expense that keeps me from trying it. It's the unknown side-effects and general long-term results. I can still see now with ocntacts, but who knows what would happen after someone got through with my eyes?

I really didn't need to see this.

Someone could easily pull normal glasses off his face -- what does he think will happen if somebody grabs these things and pulls on them?

Imagine his chagrin when he finds out that he needs a new lens prescription.

"Now, take off your glasses and look through this device at the chart on the wall."

It's easy to stole an idea. Or maybe I should say to "inspire". I don't wanna accuse you but even if you not seen this before, please consider to search for your device on the net, before you named it with "innovation".
It's opus-awarded project which designed three years ago. Please have a look at:
