Glasses for Shooting Pool/Billiards

Glasses for Shooting Pool/Billiards

I've played pool since I was 8 or 9 years old, and there's always been a pool table in the house since I was 10 years old.

I gave the game up some years back because of failing eyesight. Glasses fixed things for normal viewing, but playing pool forced me to look 'over-the-top' my glasses.

I finally put together what's shown in the attached photo.


Email me at bstovallmoore@yahoo.com and I'll give you the details. Things like steel frames only (no titanium), and etc. Please use subject = glasses.

I genuinely hope this helps someone recover or extend their love of the game.

    That's pretty clever. You've welded set atop the frames of the main pair.

    Why not just share the details here?

    They're soldered. I used copper wire as connection between frames (need some flexibility for adjustment). You have to find solder and flux suitable for soldering to stainless steel frames. Scuff the frames at the attachment points. I don't believe you can get anything to stick to titanium frames. Find steel frames. Obviously, remove lenses first. Top frame is tilted back slightly. Look for a special deal on 'buy one pair, get one free' or something like that.

    I knew a guy who used these goofy looking glasses with the lenses above his eyebrows so when he bent over for a shot he could see.
