How do I search through patents for the design of glasses?

I have a new glasses idea (like, eyewear) and I have no idea what to do! I'm 16. Who do I call, what site do I go on to search if anyone else has used my idea? And typically how long does it take to get a patent on something? Thanks

    You should call an Patent Attorney or Patent Agent. You will need drawings that define what your design is. The attorney/agent will probably know of someone that can draw them for you.... you will need to provide something to explain what your design is.

    In the U.S. you can find a professional to help you by going to www.uspto.gov and using the site index to find the Attorney and Agent Roster. You can then search that by the first 3 digits of your zip code to find someone local.

    It can take a few years to get a patent.
