Noun

glasses

  1. Plural form of glass.
  2. (plural only; not used in singular form) spectacles, frames bearing two lenses worn in front of the eyes

Usage notes

  • A sight-improving lens for a single eye is a monocle.
  • Though confusion is unlikely, clarity as to quantity is improved by using the expressions "a pair of glasses" (or "a pair of eyeglasses") or "(however may) pairs of eyeglasses".
