It looks snooker style to me. Not pool style that a lot of US players have used.

Ha!
Is this a snooker shot?

"We also supply especially compensated glasses for American pool players….."

Those rimless glasses where there's more glass above the nose and ear stem part is
what I've been interested in. I've asked my eye doctor about something like this only to
get a funny look like - what? for shooting pool---huh?


on sale there f189.00

I read that also. I'm guessing that has to do with the way they sit on your head. Because of all the long distances in snooker vs. pool the glasses probably have a different tilt/angle to the lenses.

I made my Pool Glasses, about 18 years ago... I got tired of playing badly, craning my neck & looking over the rims... bad deal, all the way around.

These glasses allow me to see normal (90 degrees) to the focal plane, no aberrations for me...

The temples are bent to allow me to see the balls clearly & the nose pieces are adjusted, to raise the lens to a better position.

Nice mod!!! Should be a great example for people who need this.

Looking and comparing the choice(s) of glasses from the websites mentioned here
shows why homelessness in America is in full swing, the Curran guy is way over priced,
so much so that the prices are 3-4 pages deep to learn the cost for a piece of plastic reengineered by a machine.

Alex’s are 1000% not from Curran. I’d bet my house and everyone’s in this thread
