Don't throw away those old plastic reading glass lenses if the cheap frames break! I managed to recycle a pair of stronger lenses into another cheap wire frame that was flexible enough to grip around the lenses and was the approximate size and shape. I eased the soft wire around the lens, putting it in place.
Result - another pair of emergency reading glasses. Someone crafty or good with a drill might also try recycling individual lenses into "monocles" of a sort to wear around the neck with a cord or ribbon.
www.photojojo.com has tricks you can do with cameras using old lenses too.
