I need to get a new pair of prescription glasses. Would like to get a style that looks "old" as in from several hundred years ago. Any Internet sources in USA that are inexpensive would be appreciated..

There are several online sources for period-looking glasses. I have purchased from the following places. In fact, I get all my glasses online. They have all worked out fine. They are not going to be exactly historically accurate, e.g., they will have nose pads, but they will work for most situations.

I got mine, period accurate, from Gettysburg Emporium, a local sutler. The were designed by a reenactor optometrist and will take modern prescription lenses. Many lens makers will not mess with old style frames, but will work on these.
