I've been wearing glasses nearly my entire life, and own many pairs of prescription glasses. Since I wear glasses every day and have been doing so for so long, my various frames are as much fashion accessories as vision correction. But they pretty much just sit in hard-shell cases in my drawer, and I've been thinking that I'd like to have them displayed on my dresser in a way that lets me see all of them at once, like a jewelry display. Can you recommend a creative way to display my prescription glasses (currently 8 pairs in frequent rotation) on my dresser top? DIY and store-bought options both welcome. Complication: glasses are front-heavy, because I am extremely visually impaired, and will topple over if left open and set down themselves on a flat surface.

Does anyone know of any recommendations for thick wine glasses? I am tired of thin wide glasses (that seem to break a lot) and I am NOT interested in plastic glasses. I know they exist, as I was at a bar a couple of months back while traveling, and they served wine in this very thick wine glasses. It was exactly what I was looking for so I asked the waitress, who asked the manager, but they didn't know where there were sourced. I am just looking for a plain wine glass (red or white wine), with no markings or decorations on them at all, but the wine glass itself is very thick. I would need to be about to buy these online as well. (And yes, I am aware that the thickness of the glass could affect that taste of the wine, but I am still looking for a thick glass.
I purchased eyeglasses with an oleophobic coating, and they're great. I can't find complete information on cleaning, though. I understand I can use plain water or a soft cloth. Can I use ordinary hand soap? Bar soap? What's best? Thanks in advance.
Does anyone remember a product that using optics made an iPhone screen look like a big screen? I remember it being some sort of head mounted contraption with some sort of glasses/optics that made the screen seem large. I'm not thinking of the "video glasses" that are being sold now. My google skills are failing me, I can only seem to find video glasses. Am I making this up or did this sort of product actually exist at some point?

Searching for [reading glasses .50] gets me 2.50, etc., on both Google and Amazon. ReadingGlasses.com has expensive ones, but I'm hoping to find good, low-strength reading glasses for the same price one would pay in a drug store. Strength .5 and/or .25. Any specific recommendations or search tips? (and what is the unit of measurement, anyway?)
