Word Lorgnette comes from French. At the end of the 19th century Lorgnette glasses were invented by Englishman George Adams, and they were not used for vision correction but as jewellery. Lorgnette became a very popular accessory in masquerades and a predecessor to opera glasses. Only the representatives of upper classes could wear Lorgnettes.
An exclusive optics salon Lorgnette at Berga Bazārs offers to stand out from the crowd today as well because the latest collections of frames and sunglasses of the leading fashion houses, glass lenses and contact lenses, professional vision tests and style advice are available.
