As a child in 1950's Amsterdam, I remember seeing
women in myodisc glasses of the type modeled here
by Carla. Contact lenses were still in their infancy and
not widely available. The myodiscs of the time were
invariably of the "Kreislenti" type, with a circular bowl
of the high Rx required. There was no transition into
the plano carrier lens in which the bowl was embedded.
Men and women were wearing "glasses within glasses".
