Spectacles have enhanced the lives of countless people over the last few hundred years, yet most of us take them for granted. In addition to a few individual collectors and enthusiasts, there are several small societies and museums dedicated to visual aids such as the Ocular Heritage Society1 in the United States and the British Optical Association Museum2 in London, England. Now there is an incredible online collection of everything related to visual aids created by David Fleishman, MD, a retired ophthalmologist in Massachusetts, with the help of more than 1100 contributors from around the world.3
