The Beginning of Glasses
That said, glasses are one of the most important objects humans have ever invented since they invented fire and the wheel. To get to its present form, glasses have gone through a long development. From beginning as a "reading store" to transforming into a lifestyle and fashion accessory.
It is difficult to prove who the original inventor of glasses was. Many point to Benjamin Franklin as its creator. However, the idea of glasses actually dates back about 400 years before the 1700s, when Franklin became active.
