"....and last but not least, here's helpful hint # 99:
When you wear eyeglasses that have protective coating on the plastic lenses, never, NEVER open the oven door and stick your head closer to remove some hot food. That GUST of hot air has a way of damaging that eyeglass coating and eventually you see these very fine spider lines on the lenses of your glasses.
It happened to my husband and his optician explained the fine "spider veins" to him.
My husband warned me.
Wouldn't you know it! I put my head in the oven...once...another time...and another time.
My eyeglasses are new, and maybe only a month old. They are already damaged...showing very fine lines...perhaps like this 45-soon-to-be-46-year-old skin of mine!
By the way, my eyeglasses were ordered online by a Winnipeg optician; the sample frames were sent to me in Toronto. The frames came from Denmark, and the sunglass lenses came from Quebec. I'm wearing an international pair of eyeglasses.
See this link. My glasses are the exact ones shown in this post -- Model 1641, collection 5132.
I guess if I keep sticking my head in a hot oven, I will have to begin "reading between the LINES!"
