This month our readers' opinions were divided over the open-source WikiGlasses made of 18mm plywood (top right) so here's a roundup of our most popular stories about spectacles and shades.
1: in pole position are these Sire glasses made of water buffalo horn, which readers labelled "simultaneously fabulous and disturbing".
2: second place goes to the W-eye reading glasses, made from layers of wood and aluminium without any hinges.
3: Royal College of Art graduate Markus Kayser is in third place with these sun shades that he made in the desert, cutting the material by focussing a beam of sunlight.
4: Yves Béhar's VerBien range of spectacles that will be distributed free to children in Mexico is in fourth place.
6: in sixth place are these biodegradable spectacle frames made of human hair by Studio Swine.
7: next up are these frames made from a single sheet of titanium with no screws, joints or hinges by Icelandic spectacle company Reykjavik Eyes.
8: more from Iceland - these hand-cut Carrara marble eyeshades for the blind by Sruli Recht are in eighth place.
9: the penultimate entry in this month's top ten is a pair of shades made from a concertina of thin plastic by BCXSY.
10: and finally, tenth place goes to these beaded shades by Thorunn Arnadottir, which feature QR codes directing photographers to make a charity donation when they snap the wearer on their smartphone.
