The earliest evidence of "a magnifying device, a convex lens forming a magnified image," dates back to 424 BC Aristophanes "lens" is a glass globe filled with water.(Seneca says that it can be used to read letters no matter how small or dim), Roger Bacon described the properties of magnifying glass in 13th-century England, followed by the development of eyeglasses in 13th-century Italy.
