Speaking as a glasses-wearer, I would say that while glasses might be most
annoying there are downright necessary for some of us and I have not seen
any frames which would look proper (nor have I the skill nor time to make
any myself).  I will continue wearing my modern glasses because I have no
choice else I be handicapped at an event to the point where I might even
need a guide.  For the same reasons, I do not expect wheelchair users to
attempt to disguise their wheelchairs or go without as the chair is a
necessity and can be excused for making our events available to more
people at a slight cost to period authenticity.
