Brian Lester will help you find your lost spectacles

By Candice Krieger, November 12, 2010

Good news for glasses wearers. A new concept has been launched which can help you track down your lost specs.

Lost Glasses Recovery is the brainchild of Brain Lester, a semi-retired chartered accountant.

The service provides people with a specifically-designed identification sleeve, which is heat-shrunk to the side of a pair of glasses. The sleeve contains an identification number and the contact details of Lost Glasses Recovery.

Mr Lester, 66, tells People: "You simply register the specs free of charge-and if you lose them, the finder calls the number on the sleeve, quotes the ID number and the glasses are returned." The "finders" will in turn receive a voucher for their efforts.

He says: "I wear reading glasses and am always leaving them all over the place. I had been toying with the idea for a couple of years. " Mr Lester lives in Southend-on-Sea.
