Fashion E City glasses Museum is the first eyeglasses-themed museum in Guangdong Province. The museum is divided into three areas, eyewear culture Area, Henggang Eyewear Industry Development area and popular science area, which are arranged in chronological order.
Eyeglasses cultural area tells about the cultural change on the bridge of the nose, which is composed of three development histories: the change of shape, the change of industry and the change of use. China is the birthplace of eyeglasses. Eyeglasses have a history of more than 4,000 years. From the legend of the original lens in the Yellow Emperor era to the monocle in the Eastern Han Dynasty, the monocle was made of crystal stone, with a diameter of 1.3 centimeters, equivalent to a magnifying glass, which could be magnified 3-4 times. In the Southern Song Dynasty, two-piece legless glasses appeared, and in the late Ming Dynasty, two-piece straight-leg glasses appeared. In the Qing Dynasty, it developed into double - piece curved - legged glasses, at which time the shape of glasses was very close to modern glasses.
