One of the first recorded pair of glasses were made in 1284 by Salvino D'Armate in Italy. The lenses were made of glass or a crystal like stone with a handle to hold them up to your eyes (scissor glasses frame and later lorgnette glasses). The frames and handle were often made of metal and the lenses corrected both hyperopia (farsightedness) and presbyopia. During this time between 1284 and the 1400's, Mecca, Venice and Italy established a guild for crystal workers and standards for eyeglass lenses. This meant that by the end of the 14th century, eyeglasses were being sent all over Europe.
