Noun[edit]

okulvitroj pl (accusative okulvitrojn)

  1. (plural only) eyeglasses, spectacles, pair of glasses
    • 1963, Sándor Szathmári, “Honorigo”, in Satiraj rakontoj[1]:
      — Ĉu vi ne estas miopa? — li demandis.
      — Tute ne! — protestis Palva. — Mi legas ĉiam sen okulvitroj.
      “Aren’t you nearsighted?”, he asked.
      “Not at all,” Palva protested. “I always read without eyeglasses.”
  2. plural of okulvitro

Usage notes[edit]

  • The first Esperanto dictionary, the Universala Vortaro, used plural okulvitroj for eyeglasses. The vicissitudes of usage have given the singular an identical meaning.
