If I hear of the fighter jets taking to the air, I will know why. But my lips are sealed.

Are they like generic reading glasses? I'm not even sure the eyelash curler would fit through an empty frame.

The whole lense with frame flips up. You don't stick anything through the frame. You look through the other eye with the lens down. As I recall, they were generic reading glasses.

They are made for applying make-up and curling your lashes.

Amazon.com: Kikkerland Magnifying Flip Lens Makeup Glasses: Health & Personal Care

Amazon was telling me I already bought 2 pair of these a couple years ago. LOL!

Or opera glasses. Or even take a lens out of a pair of readers and hold it up to one eye at a time.

Thanks. Those look like they would work. The ones at the Canadian Amazon site flip the other way, so I don't think they would work. But, they suggested a magnifying mirror. I'll give that a try. I already have one.
