means "pinch nose", and were very popular in the 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries in Europe. The Pince nez grips onto your nose bridge and is normally used for reading. Pince Nez reading glasses have an old-world look, but they have the advantage of being smaller and lighter. They are easy to whip out of your pocket to read something, and because they do not have temples, you do not have to wrestle with them every time.
