The origin and development of glasses
In 1268, Roger Bacon first recorded the lens used for optical purposes. In Europe, the first glasses appeared in Italy and were introduced by Alessandro di Spina of Florence. The first portrait with glasses, “Hugh of Provence”, was painted by Tommaso da Modena in 1352.
It is said that it was invented by an optician named Armato and Spina, an Italian living in Pisa.
American inventor Benjamin Franklin suffered from nearsightedness and farsightedness. In 1784, he invented both distance and nearsightedness glasses; in 1825, British astronomer George Avery invented glasses that can correct astigmatism. Glasses appeared in my country in the middle of the Ming Dynasty, and Western glasses were introduced into my country through the Western Regions or Southeast Asia in the Ming Dynasty. Tian Yiheng in Wanli of the Ming Dynasty wrote in the second volume of “Liuqing Rizha” in “Jian Gu”: “Every time I read an article, my eyesight is faint and he does not discern the fine books, so as to cover my eyes, keep the spirit, and make the strokes clear. In the middle, he uses silk silk couplets. It is tied to the back of the head, no one knows it, so you can ask it. Yu said: This is the same.” At this time, the name is the original name.
