-plural noun
1. Often (informal) shortened to: specs .  a pair of glasses for correcting defective vision
2. cricket pair of spectacles  a score of 0 in each innings of a match

I wonder at the value of education
That teaches you to use spectacles
When all you need really is glasses

My Mum often said this word to me, as in "Stop making a spectacle of yourself!"
