Palin Eyewear

I keep reading articles about Sarah Palin's eyeglasses and their trend-setting ability. Long a glasses and contact wearer, I see the appeal...and I secretly covet it.
While Palin's not the first famous woman to sport eyeglasses -- think Sally Jesse Raphael, Tina Fey and Velma from Scooby Doo -- insiders in the optical business say it's been a while since anyone has given their industry such a shot in the arm.

The frames, which cost about $375 without lenses, are even part of the buzz at New York's Bryant Park Fashion Week.

"Like Jackie Kennedy wore with the pillbox hat her glasses will be a revolutionary thing to wear," said one designer.
Lasic surgery, you're out!
