1. An eyeglass device comprising:

  • a first frame includingtwo retaining mechanisms for supporting a pair of lenses, and defining a frontal plane,a bridge connecting the two retaining mechanisms and holding the two retaining mechanisms together, anda first magnetic member at the bridge for magnetically coupling to another magnetic member at the bridge of a second frame;

    such that when coupled,the two frames are attached together,due to the locations of the magnetic members, one of the frames is restricted from moving downwards relative to the other frame, andthe two magnetic members are coupled at a surface that is not parallel to the frontal phase.
