This Silhouette frame from 1993 is striking but the first owner of these glasses made them even more remarkable by the lens options she chose. The lenses have a pronounced yellow tint which is an unusual choice. The lady in question must have been at least in her fifties as she needed a reading add of +2.50. The left lens is single vision and only the right lens is progressive. Perhaps the lady was well beyond her fifties and in that case, she may have chosen this unusual solution to prevent stumbling or even falling. Iris was posing standing upright, in spite of the blur seen through the lenses. But the alley where this part of the photo shoot was taken offered her the opportunity to grasp something with both hands whenever necessary. Anyway, she was not bothered by anything. Good!
