These things are weird, but I love them! Based on postage stamps they are from 1977 and come with the original shipping box from South Africa, original paperwork and insert with "testimonials" from the UK.

Please note these are not actually meant to be worn; they are a novelty item, but a darn funny one!

You CAN actually see really well out of these since the pinholes allow light directly into your retina. HOWEVER, I would definitely not recommend them for regular use :D The theory of pinhole is ancient and is still sometimes used in determining one's prescription. In the 1990s I worked in a LensCrafters and we actually had a crazy old lady who poked holes in pieces of cardboard and wore them in frames!!!

Weird and cool vintage black Lax-Optics pinhole glasses from South Africa
