UNITED STATES PATENT FFICE.

CYRILLE LEVEQUE, 0F MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA.

EYEGLASSES.

To all "whom t may concern:

Be it known that I, CYRILLE LnvEQun, a subject of the King of England, residing at Mont-real, in the Province of Quebec, Canada, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Eyeglasses; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and eXact description of the invention, such as will enable ot-hers skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.

The invention to be hereinafter described relates to eye glasses.

In order to more clearly disclose the construction, operation, and use of the invention, reference should be had to the accompanying drawings forming part of the present application.

Throughout the several figures of the drawings like reference characters designate the same parts.

In the drawings: Figure l is a perspective view of the invention, applied; and Fig. 2 is a perspective view of the invention, showing the manner of carrying it.

The main objects of the invention are to provide a simple, economical, eficient, durable, and reliable eye glass which may be readily and quickly put on or taken off with one hand instead of two; one which cannot drop off when the wearer is stooping or bending over; one in which the lenses may be readily and quickly cleaned with one hand and without removing the glasses from the wearers head; one which completely avoids the pinching effect of the nose clips used on the majority of the present eye glasses and also avoids the disagreeable hooked arms or ear clips of the well known forms of spectacles; and one which may be readily and easily carried without a case.

Referring to the drawings in detail, l indicates the lens frame in which any of the well known forms of lenses may be seated or secured. To the outer end of each lens frame is secured one end of a wire rod formed as a loop 2 adapted to lit about the sides and back of the wearers head. Toward the front, this loop is curved downwardly and forwardly at each side, as at 3,

Specification of Letters Patent.

Application filed ctober 16, 1911.

Patented May 14, 1912.

Serial No. 654,991.

forming a rest portion adapted to lie lightly on the upper part of the cheek above the c heek bones. At the end of each rest portlon the wire is bent upwardly, substantially at right angles, forming a short vertical arm 4 connecting the lens frame 1 with the rest portion 3.

The wire may be a single continuous piece, or it may be two pieces, one telescoping into the other to permit adjustments for heads of various sizes. In the telescopic form, the curvature causes a slight binding between the two parts, which binding action serves to hold the parts in adjusted position. If desired, a more positive means may be provided in the nature of a small set screw. The parts may be made to slide on one another instead of telescoping. In fact, any convenient means may be used for increasing or decreasing the size of the loop and no claim is here made to the specific form or arrangement of such means.

One feature of the invention is that of slight resilience or springiness of the wire loop. It is due to this feature that the invention does not require a case for carrying it. It is simply necessary to compress the loop sufficiently to allow the device to be placed in the crown of the wearers hat. Then the loop is freed and its tendency to resume its original shape simply binds it firmly against the crown of the hat. It may be taken out in the same way that it is put in, of course.

It is evident, of course, that the lens frames 1 may be entirely omitted and the lenses mounted directly in the upper ends of the arms 4, just as usual in the well known rimlcss or frameless eye glasses now on the market.

It is thought that the operation and use of the invention will be clear from the preceding detailed description.

Changes may be made in the construction, arrangement, and disposition of the several parts of the invention without in any way departing from the iield and scope of the same and it is meant to include all such within this application wherein only a preferred form has been disclosed.

Having thus fully disclosed my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

l. In combination, a frame adapted to it about a wearers head, rest portions formed in said frame to support the same on the cheek of the wearer, and lenses carried by the ends of said frame.

2. In combination, a frame adapted to t about'a wearers head, rest portions formed n said frame to support the same on Jthe cheek of the wearer, an arm extending at an angle from each rest portion, and a lens carried by each arm.

In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand in the presence of two witnesses. l5
