OK PEOPLE!   
   
In ancient India, the philosophical schools of Samkhya and Vaisheshika, from around the 6th–5th century BC, developed theories on light. This would help understand how polished crystals concentrates light to one spot in the future.    
   
As light travels slower in glass, crystals, water, etc. The light bends into the curve making the light focus on one point.   
<~~~~ Explained.   
   
   
The earliest known lenses were made from polished crystal, often quartz, and have been dated as early as 700 BC for Assyrian lenses such as the Layard / Nimrud lens. The ancient Romans and Greeks filled glass spheres with water to make lenses. However, glass lenses were not thought of until the Middle Ages.

read somewhere that someone put made a fire on the beach overnight and woke up finding shards of glass. Then again I read this in an SRA when I was 7, so I could definitely not know if this were true or not

The earliest use of glasses I've ever heard of is that Nero used to use a cut jewel to correct his nearsightedness somewhat.
