I don't know much about others, but Emma Bunton is a confirmed glasses wearer. She mentioned on a video "I got them just for reading a couple of years ago, but now it has become something that I can't live without". By looking at the video published date I found she must have started wearing reading glasses at the age of about 35.

Can you find any info about others from the band who wear glasses?

if you read earlier news about the spice girls, they all needed glasses from the start. but not everyone wore glasses. so nothing has changed.

Okay! since I started this by asking a simple question I certainly didn't mean to cause all this fuss. So I am sorry for saying I thought she had a Spanish accent. My mistake! I do thank Carrie and others for advising me where I cold find the pictures I was interested in.

 31 Jan 2018, 14:35

"Like most of us here?"

WOW. How would you presume to know the ethnicity of the group here? Might be a bit conceited, do you think? This is a worldwide site. Only Americans are typically dull enough to not recognize the difference in foreign accents. Anyone from an Asian country sounds the same to them. Anyone from a Spanish heritage country sounds the same to them.

How about we pick an American with a strong redneck Southern drawl and say "that's how all Americans sound?" Or all Americans sound like Doctor Who? No? They all speak English, right? What's the problem?

Do you get the point? Open your ethnic eyes. A Cuban accent is a Cuban accent. It is not a Spanish accent. People from Spain have a Spanish accent.

Carrie 30 Jan 2018, 17:04

Cubans speak Spanish but I presume the accent is slightly different than Spanish in Spain itself, like American English is similar but slightly different to British English. To someone who is neither Cuban or Spanish, like most of us here, her accent *sounds* Spanish. I believe many non-English speakers can't always work out if a speaker is English or American. Sometimes a native English speaker can be mistaken for a native German speaker to a non-English or German speaker!

(Sorry everyone for being off topic briefly)

 30 Jan 2018, 14:23


She doesn't have a SPANISH accent. She has a CUBAN accent.

Carrie 30 Jan 2018, 10:54

Camila Cabello is beautiful. Her songs are ok, not my sort of thing.

Rather than going to the website of a very trashy newspaper you can just Google "Camila Cabello Grammys" or "Camila Cabello glasses" to see lots of photos of her wearing glasses. Her prescription doesn't look very strong. She is Cuban, which explains the Spanish accent.

The glasses of Liam Payne surely are prescription,it looks like a plus one,on the low/medium range,i'm not very good in guessing the prescription.

I guess he used them for long time,but this is just the first time he uses them in a public appearance,which is nice,it's so rare nowadays to see young male celebrities wearing prescription glasses.

I couldn't agree with you more. In most pictures I have seen of her she doesn't look even slightly attractive. So seeing these 4 pictures of her looking this attractive is s nice surprise. And not just because she is wearing glasses. but even her choice of glasses are a nice look for her. They really showcase her eyes, In these pictures her eyes look amazing as well. She should stay with this kind of look all the time. She did look rather nice in a video I saw of her signing with Tony Bennet.

Soundmanpt 16 Mar 2017, 15:37


Thanks for posting the pictures of "Stefanie Joanne Angelina Germanotta" otherwise known as "lady Gaga" With a name that long it now makes sense why she goes by Lady Gaga. Anyway I have seen pictures of Gaga wearing glasses before but was never able to tell if they were prescription and if so what her glasses might be for or if they were just another part of some her often strange outfits. But the very first picture when enlarged clearly shows some nice minification in the right lens of her glasses. So she is without a doubt nearsighted. She even looks quite attractive in these pictures and not just because she is wearing glasses, but even her glasses look very nice on her as well.

Sadly I don't think she is very well known here in the US. She is indeed very attractive. Really hard to get any idea what her prescription might be since the pictures don't enlarge. But from the different angles her glasses do appear to be rather necessary, but i'm not sure they are as strong as -4.00 or -5.00 maybe more around -2.50.

She looks really good wearing those glasses doesn't she? The glasses she is wearing looks like a pair of Art Craft or Shuron glasses. I have a very old pair that looks exactly like the ones she is wearing and they were made in 1941. They are in perfect condition and many things you don't see with glasses today. They are 14ct gold filled. The lenses are real glass. the nose pads are made from ivory. All the etching on the thin temples was done by hand. They have cable temples which you seldom see anymore. And the oddest part is that the prescription is just a +.25 in both eyes. This was during the war and I can't imagine why anyone would even prescribe anyone glasses for such a small prescription and the cost was probably more than a weeks pay in those days. I intend to keep them but I several years ago I did loan them to young lady that really loved them. She was an optician at a local optical store and her manager was getting on her because they had a rule that everyone working in the store had to wear glasses. She didn't need glasses and even worse she was very petite and she really was having a terrible time finding glasses that fit her small face. But my old glasses fit her perfectly and she since she loved them I agreed to let her borrow them to wear until she found glasses that fit her. It turned out she did order a pair the next week but as luck would have it they were on back order and they didn't come in for well over six weeks. When I went in to get my glasses back she tried hard to get me to sell them to her because she liked them that much. She wore them everyday she worked she said. She said they were comfortable and she soon hardly even noticed that she was wearing them. Her glasses looked very nice on her as well and she was good about wearing them at work. I'm sure your glasses must look really cute on you as well.

She is isn't she Brian, not my normal sort, in fact pretty much completely the opposite of what I would normally go for but those aviators and the red slit dress she wore on the live show made her look ravishing. Here are the screencaps;

Her prescription? I'm no expert at these sorts of things, but there were several mm's of lens thickness to the side of her glasses and although not that visible in the caps, some power rings so I would estimate between -4 and -4.5?

Brian 31 Oct 2016, 05:21

Wow, gwgs, she's very pretty and it's good to see aviators are coming back in vogue - any estimates on her RX?

Gifty Louise wore her metal aviator glasses last night on the X Factor - iirc - for the first time, despite wearing them in rehearsals previously, and it was a shame therefore that she was the act to go home.

She looks amazing in them, with a little lens thickness visible when viewed from the side.

I took a few screencaps, but there's an article on the Daily Mail website with a few photos of her wearing them in an interview she was on this morning on the tv.

Last night Ariana Grande was the musical guest on The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon and she was wearing a really nice looking pair of gold aviator glasses that looked really nice on her.

Was quite a sighting wasn't it Carrie, I'm glad you like it!

She sure was cute and geeky in a way and I certainly wouldn't say to no to her. With regard to Adele's language, it was dreadful and there was no need for her to use such uneducated language when she is such a role model for so many worldwide.

Carrie 27 Jun 2016, 13:13

gwgs - I saw that live last night and I thought to myself how can Eyescene readers who aren't in the UK see that (The BBC's catch up website iPlayer doesn't work outside the UK). Thankfully someone (you?) recorded on something so it could be made available to everyone. Hopefully the BBC won't mind. I'm not a super-fan of Adele's but I do like a lot of her songs and I like her as a person. She seems genuinely friendly and down to earth. She just can't control her "potty mouth" when she's chatting. Apparently she swore 33 times during her performance (mostly the "F" word)! We were laughing so much we were crying and lost count of the "f"s! It was after 10pm so it didn't matter and BBC presenter did warn the tv audience beforehand that Adele might swear a bit. (I think I would swear if I walked on to a stage in front of thousands of people!)

There were quite a few attractive glasses wearing ladies in the crowds at the different stages and different times but only seen for a few seconds. I think it was during the performance by one of my favourite bands, Wolf Alice, a girl probably in her late teens was shown several times. She was wearing Wayfarer style glasses with a mild minus in one lens and a moderate minus in the other. I have watched the Wolf Alice performance back a few times but I can't remember during which song the girl was seen because I have watched performances by some of the other bands that played Glastonbury (thank you BBC!)and I might be getting the audiences mixed up.

I suppose these sightings should go in the "Sightings" section because it wasn't the musicians wearing glasses but members of the audience. I don't know if any female musicians wore glasses during Glastonbury.

In looking on "google" Perrie Edwards wearing glasses there is a picture of a very young Perrie wearing what appears to be a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer glasses. Of course they could be fake. The picture is not a close up.

Petrie Edwards, a member of British girl group Little Mix, got glasses just a few days ago.

I think she looks prettier in the second picture.

I would like to make it clear that as far as their music is concerned I am not interested in Ariana Grande or Little Mix. I found the Petrie Edwards photo accidentally. There was a link on the page the first Ariana Grande photo was on to a page with a news story about Petrie getting glasses.

The very pretty Ariana Grande seems to be getting more daring in her choice of glasses frames. I Googled "Ariana Grande glasses" and discovered a reply to a Tweet on 9th May 2011 where she was asked if she wore glasses and her reply was "I don't need them , but I like wearing them for fun sometimes". So it seems she has only been wearing glasses for no more than 5 years.

Here are several photos of Taylor Swift wearing glasses at a concert that I posted back in 2009;

 25 May 2016, 00:03

Only the 2nd photo shows Taylor wearing her own glasses and tjat's from a few years ago.

I'm not sure that the young girl is even a very old photo of Taylor, just an old photo of someone else.

The other 2 photos are of her mucking around on a tv show. The glasses are not hers.

Taylor has a minus prescription of at least -1.50, probably stronger now. A few years ago she tried on a British tv presenter's glasses and she said they were the same prescription as hers when the presenter told her his prescription. I believe she wears contacts mostly now but the glasses she wore in one of her videos were her own prescription ones.

They all looked quite sexy on the TV show and I had Google them to check their ages and discovered that they are all in their early 40s! I also discovered that at least 2 of them wore glasses! Again, looking quite hot. I don't know if they still wear glasses but they are all at the age when reading glasses may be needed. None of them wore glasses on the show.

I'm not so sure I can see any real rx in Beyoncé's glasses, the pics aren't high res enough to confirm any minification. Definitely no obvious cut-in. I've noticed before that even plano lenses make a slight distortion from some angles. So for me, the jury is out.

Would be great to see some real rx though, gotta keep an eye out for better pics to confirm.

I don't recall seeing any pictures before of Beyonce wearing glasses so a nice find indeed. Not only is she wearing glasses but her glasses look like they are quite necessary as well. She appears to have a fairly decent prescription based on what you can see through the left lens of her glasses. So she is clearly not wearing fake glasses just to keep from being recognized. Not surprising that she looks as good wearing glasses though.

Soundmanpt 05 Feb 2016, 10:48

Something I did some research on and found to be interesting. Musician Glenn Frey died a couple weeks ago. He being one of the founding members of The Eagles. I remembered hearing a local sportscaster talking on air about attempting to get The Eagles to play a private function at the high school he had attended many years before and now his son was attending. The name of the school was C,B.C. High School located in the St. Louis area. The date they wanted was to be this year in the spring, but in talking with the manager of the Eagles he was told that the band would not be available at that time because they would be on break from doing an extended tour. The manager offered them the date at after the final tour date which was July 31st 2015. They agreed on that date and this was a private affair and they would be playing for less than 500 people. Everything of course was kept secret of course to prevent any gate crashers. The manger said that this was to be their last job before their break. Glenn Frey was already sick and only got worse until he died. I looked up the band's show schedule and it showed all the cities and big stages they were playing on in front of thousands every night the schedule showed dates starting back in April of 2015 and sure enough the last date shown was July 31st 2015 at CBC High School. Very hard to believe that a band as famous as the Eagles last performance would be at a high school in front of less then 500 people.

I've been enjoying watching Gareth Malone on TV, conducting a cappella singing groups he has trained. He's a neat-looking guy of almost 40 with 'dirty fair' hair and a pleasant smile, usually in classic NHS-style glasses with flesh-coloured frames and minus lenses - showing a bit of minification but no power rings or cut-in. He's worth seeing - and hearing!

Soundmanpt 17 Sep 2015, 14:53

I have not opened the picture of her wearing glasses but just by how hard she was straining and squinting to try and see I think Val is probably much closer than Ari. Is she only needed -.75 correction I don't think whatever she was trying to see was that far away from her that would cause her so much trouble with that weak of prescription. But -1.50 or -2.00 she would have a very hard time seeing anything more than just a few feet away without her glasses. Remember the letters on a teleprompter or monitor aren't that small.

Val 17 Sep 2015, 11:55

About Ariana Grande. I would say -1.5...maybe -2.

The lenses look like high index, but the minification is big enough.

But I'm not an expert...

Ari 17 Sep 2015, 10:14

My guess would be -.75 with a slight astigmatism. Anything wrong with that guess? Experts?

Soundmanpt 17 Sep 2015, 10:08


You are so right, I'm not sure how far away the monitor or teleprompter was from her but she clearly couldn't see it. After her struggling with trying to see the first song Jimmy must have saw that she couldn't see it and he read off the next songs to try and help her. She must be too vain to be seen wearing glasses on stage, but it looked far worse when she was straining and squinting so badly. If she is that vain and has such poor vision I wonder why she wasn't wearing contacts? After seeing that I have to think tat her friends will be telling her that she either better start wearing her glasses or at least have them in hand or get contacts.

But he actually has sold over 65 million records. His name is Michael McDonald. He was very recently in town for a fund raiser which was a complete sell out and I got a chance to visit with him on his tour bus.

If you want to hear his music go to You Tube and look up "What a Fool Believes" or "Minute by Minute" or even Takin it to the Streets" all by the Doobie Brothers and written by Michael McDonald.

Soundmanpt - She's not a full time wearer. I didn't even know she wore glasses until I Googled her name. The photos are from her personal Instagram account.

The band are all siblings and are actually from California. They are best known for their song "Cool Kids" which probably got loads of radio play in the States as it got loads over here. You might have heard the song (sorry, she's not wearing glasses in the video) I love the sound of the guitar in that song!

I couldn't agree with more. Sydney is absolutely gorgeous. Just more proof that you can be stunning and be wearing glasses. Any idea if she is a full time glasses wearer? Judging by theses pictures all taken at different times she must wear glasses at least most to the time and she doesn't bother taking them off for the camera which is even more proof how much self confidence she must have in her good looks. Great find. Sadly I have never heard of her band or her. I assume she just hasn't made her way to this side of the pond. You know i will be watching for her now.

I wish I had been able to keep a copy of all of my prescriptions over the 51 years of my nearsightedness, as I always wondered what exactly did follow my -1.75/-1.50 first glasses.

My current RX is: -9.00 +3.00 90 (each eye), add +2.50. So my RX is similar to Cheryl's.

As for Wayfarers, only my one pair of green frames look like them.

Likelenses 10 Jul 2015, 03:03


Cheryl's newest Rx as of a few months ago is. Rt. -9.50

Lt. -9.25 -.50 cyl@176

Add +2.00

I don't know her prior Rx,but I do know that she had not had an exam. for a few years,and was initially not happy that it had increased at her age of 42,and the lenses became flat fronts.She has not shown it to me yet,but she has a complete log history of all of her prescriptions all the way back to her first at age 14.Her mother has at her place all of Cheryl's glasses back to her first pair.

I do not recall your exact Rx,but believe it is close to hers,but a lot of cylinder.

I also got her an online overcorrection of an additional -.75 with the add bumped up to +2.75

She actually is not opposed to larger frame / lense sizes,her first choice in her new Rx are a pair of black Wayfarers. She dislikes the clear plastic because it is so similar in color to lenses.

murky 09 Jul 2015, 05:49

Melyssa 09 Jul 2015, 04:49


I seem to recall you indicating that Cheryl has a prescription that is stronger than mine, so it's understandable why she would not want to wear large frames regardless of color, especially with the lens thickness. For me it's necessary due to my "size 13 head," in that I need larger frames to get a comfortable fit -- and then there is that peripheral vision improvement.

I told Cheryl about what your college friends said about clear frames, but she dug in her heels and insists that those large clear frames would just scream big strong glasses.

I guess that I would agree with her on that,but I am best to keep that to myself.

Some times she loves talking about glasses,and at other time it is like walking on egg shells.

Likelenses 07 Jul 2015, 20:26

Her Rx is Rt. -9.50

Lt. -9.25 -.50 cyl@176

Add +2.00

I also got her an online overcorrection of an additional -.75 with the add bumped up to +2.75

She is often self conscious about wearing strong glasses.

It seems to go back to her high school years when her Rx changed quite rapidly,and she had glass lenses that were quite thick.She has said that at that time she would feel really sad each time her eyes got worse requiring stronger glasses,which on a few occasions happened more than one time each year.There was also a boyfriend in her life at that time that didn't want her to wear glasses when they went out.He told her you should be able to see without those things.

On the other hand she is fascinated by strong lenses,and likes to talk about eyesight,glasses,eye exams etc.

Melyssa 03 Jul 2015, 12:10


"A face full of lenses." I have never thought of that before. Actually, I have several pairs of clear frames, and most of those are twice the height of I.M.'s frames. When I was in college, many girls wore clear frames in different sizes. I was told by a friend of mine there that clear made it look less like she was wearing glasses.

Likelenses 02 Jul 2015, 20:48


I wanted to get my girl friend Cheryl a frame exactly like that one.

Sometimes she can get a bit testy,and when I offered to buy it for her she said," with those frames,I would be a face full of lenses ". She thought that the clear plastic frame would be just an extension of her already wonderful thick bifocal lenses.

It may not have helped that I said that the frame would be ideal for CR 39 lenses.

She actually likes wearing thick lenses for me,but at the same time occasionally gets annoyed with my obsession over them.

Interestingly, she has ask now on two occasions if I thought that she could get myodiscs in her Rx.We had a server at a restaurant several weeks ago with marvelous probably -30 myos,and Cheryl had never seen anything like them before. Since then, she on and off brings up the subject.She even wants to go back to that restaurant to get another look at them.

Oh and I almost forgot good luck at the optometrists today. I assume by now since your some 6 hours ahead of me you have already had your eyes tested. My guess is that your going to come away with a prescription close to your cousin's old glasses and maybe a touch more.

Soundmanpt 20 Jun 2015, 06:06


I totally agree with you. It's a music video with the same old thing we have seen so many times before. A girl, or in this case a group of girls, start off as seemingly uninterested in their looks and how their dressed. So its simple hair, little or no makeup, jeans, loose tops and glasses of course. Then "hot" girls never wear glasses and are always dressed as if there on a date. Then like magic, in this case a magic book hits them and they are transformed into the hottest girls at school. A change of hair, some makeup, nice outfits and of course the glasses have to go because no "hottie" would be caught wearing glasses. I assume the reason the glasses always have to go is because glasses indicates poor or weak eyesight or better put an imperfection. So to be a "hottie" you can't be wearing glasses. At least that is the way it appears in movies and other shows.

Wouldn't it be nice to see a movie where a "hottie" or at least a very attractive girl that is say the prom queen graduates and discovers that guys only like her for her looks. But as shes heading off to college she decides she wants to be more than just a pretty girl and she decides she wants to be a doctor. S Even though she is very attractive she also was in the upper half of her graduating class. The strain of so much studying late into the night with less than perfect lighting takes it's toll on her eyes and her once perfect eyesight is gone. She first considers getting contacts but she always thought that glasses looked really nice on most people so she got glasses. And from there you could take the story any way you wanted. By point is go the other way and have the hot girl start wearing glasses. I think that idea would be a big confidence builder for many young women getting their first glasses. Carrie you were the exception because you really wanted to wear glasses even before you ever got glasses, but look at how reluctant some of your friends are about wearing glasses. Your cousin tried her best to go without glasses until she finally gave in. Your college friend was reluctant when she got her first glasses. So I think they the writers just need to be more creative with how they handle the subject of glasses wearing.

Ok so the first link didn't work and I forgot the 2nd! Let's try again - Music video Behind the scenes video

Carrie 20 Jun 2015, 03:56

Jade from UK girl group Little Mix wears her own real glasses in the video for their song "Black Magic". Mild plus. She is sometimes seen wearing them out and about. I would like to make it quite clear that I am not into their music! The only reason that I decided to look at the video was because I heard them being interviewed on the radio and it was mentioned that they were dressed as nerdy girls in the video, so I thought they would likely to be wearing glasses. Two of them are wearing glasses but the other member of the group is wearing fake glasses. Here's the link to the video and here's a behind the scenes video where she wears her glasses before filming.

The "nerdy with glasses" thing is getting a bit tiresome now as I feel that most glasses wearers are not nerdy, especially those in their teens and 20s. It could put people off wearing their glasses and I wonder how Jade feels about the "nerdy" thing. Her glasses are not nerdy and she certainly isn't.

Off in to town very soon as my eye test is this afternoon.

I've got to give Emma credit for a great frame choice. They are very flattering.

Soundmanpt 26 May 2015, 10:01


In an picture posted a couple days ago there was a nice close up of Emma and you could clearly see through the bottom section of her glasses a fair amount of magnification in her right lens, but directly across from her eye there was no sign of magnification so either the top section was plano or a a very weak minus. If she rather enjoys wearing her glasses and not doing a lot of off and on with er glasses she could have had her glasses made with just the reading part in the bottom and clear at the top so she can wear them as much as she wants.

gwgs 26 May 2015, 09:06

How can you tell they're progressives Soundman?!

Soundmanpt 26 May 2015, 07:12


I very recall seeing several pictures of Emma when the Spice girls were at their peek of her wearing glasses very similar to the round wire frames she has on in those 2009 pictures. Hard to say if those early glasses were prescription, but clearly these recent pictures she is wearing plus glasses and in one almost certainly progressives. Of course she looks amazing in adult glasses these days.

They have to be progressive considering that the lower part of the lens is close to her cheek which is nevertheless magnified more than the region beside her eye.

I very recall seeing Emma back in her Spice Girls days wearing glasses. They were just the cute little wire frames that were in style at the time.

Most likely the glasses she is modeling in in these pictures have no lenses so as to make it easier for the photographer to make great pictures.

Below is a crude and awkward translation of some information about Diana Cazan. Note that her gender becomes lost and her surname becomes "boiler".

For procurer boiler is affected in a proportion of 90 %. The world through glasses with dioptres of 19 to read and 14 for distance. It has a life as soon as normal in his 25 years, with joys and troubles specific age. And he found, as he likes to call it, a medicine for my soul - music, this is the hardest thing that holds it to the float line in the moments when you feel that everything is now falling apart. One gram of bad luck was not enough for that Diana to be born with serious problems. "I think it is something wrong during pregnancy. Parents are normal people, without health problems. I wore goggles when I know what I did, I'm lucky, though, I fail to see, I can tend to myself. At present, it is very poisonous affected eye are very high voltage, already had may keep under control, even with treatment. On February 18 are programd to a hospital in Iasi for surgical intervention. There is a risk that I can lose my and the last ten percent in view", told me Diana.

Even if only appeares, Diana felt the man, he felt his intentions of voice tone. High school followed the art of Craiova, then emigrate music from the Faculty of Letters of the university Craiova, specialisation music interpretation. In 2007, it is a contributor to Berlin Philharmonie Oltenia is part of institution's choir. He played on the piano, started singing popular songs, and for more than three years interprets light music. He has won numerous competitions light music organized by the National Association of blind in Romania. It has a warm voice, which transmits emotion, kindred spirits perfectly into your songs interpreted by Celine Dion or Lara Fabian, and the Romanian interpreters admired Paula Pantelimon. On Diana boiler you have had the chance to see her and to the "X factor", where it was purr "angel X factor" by Dan Bittman. Experience and confidence which they have acquired as a result of the music competitions in which he participated have invented it and more and want to participate in other competitions and music.

Eyestein I think it was +19 for reading. Here is another video in which she is reading the lyrics while singing. If I'm not mistaken she's wearing strong readers, sort of half lens style. +19? Unfortunately the camera is fixed throughout and doesn't zoom in at all. 8-(

Eyestein 10 Oct 2014, 21:24

Perhaps it makes sense if +19 is her contacts prescription. As it would be the opposite of the rule for minus lenses the number would be larger.

Eyestein 10 Oct 2014, 20:48

Diana is awesome. Some time ago there appeared a Romanian article which seemed to say that Diana Cazan used two different prescriptions of +14 and +19. I can't read Romanian and so I wasn't sure what to make of it.

Owlish 09 Oct 2014, 19:48

Diana Cazan (+14) is back on X Factor Romania, this time with a trio called "Studio 7".

They do a pretty good version of Janis Joplin's "Mercedes Benz" which explains the 60's hippy headbands and costume.

Eliot - I don't particularly like Miley either. My interest in her is purely physical. I will keep to myself what I'd like to do with her and her tongue but I am curious to see what she looks like wearing her own glasses with her current image. It is quite scary how many fans she has. I know she is trying to shake off the squeaky clean Hannah Montana image and showing she is a woman now but she is overdoing it. Britney Spears had a similar change from the innocent image to the adult woman image. Britney wears her glasses a lot in public and has done for a long time. Hopefully Miley will also start wearing her glasses in public.

Soundmanpt 16 Nov 2013, 00:57


About 20 years ago I saw Stevie Nicks in concert at an out muny teather and and as most people know she has a thing about changing outfits after nearly every song. Mostly just a different schol. Anyway when a song was done she was being lead back by an attendent. It seemed very strange but the next day a local TV station reported that the reason she was being lead was because she had lost or had a damaged contact lens and her vision was so bad that she really couldn't see well enough without help. I was very surprised that someone that needed correction so bad didn't have a spare pair of contacts with her. Of course when she was younger she was very pretty.

On my last post of Nelly Furtado singing on the Ellen show, I watched the video looking hard to see how strong the glasses are and became convinced they are plano. This is very odd, since in the clips Joel posted, she clearly has a pretty strong prescription and most certainly wears contact lenses normally when she performs. So why in the world would she wear plano glasses over contacts for this TV performance?

While searching fruitlessly for any video with Fiona Apple wearing glasses (which she has done in several concerts apparently) I stumbled upon this gem:

The girl is amazing with fantabulous glasses and really quite a good singer too. This appears to be the only video of her in specs though.

Soundmanpt - I'm not really in to rap either but she won the Mercury Music Prize in the UK a few years ago. She stood out for me because she was a British female rapper and there's not many of them. I don't know if that style of frames would suit me. They suit Speech.

I really need to decide on some frames soon as it is, as you say, getting close to when I was going to get my eyes tested.

My cousin still only wears her glasses when she feels she needs them (which is more than she used to). She hasn't gone full time yet although I think she tends to wear her glasses all day at college but I think she often did that last term.

Soundmanpt 07 Sep 2013, 09:47


I have never heard of Speech Debelle, but then again I am not at all into rap. You said you want your new glasses to give you a more adult look than your current ones do. The glasses she is wearing even though they are very simple would look much more real than your big frame plastic glasses.

Have you found a style that suits your fancy yet? As I recall you must be getting close to when you said you planned on getting your eyes examined?

What's the latest on your cousin? Is she pretty much full time now or still trying hard to avoid wearing them?

Carrie 07 Sep 2013, 06:24

British rapper Speech Debelle (had forgotten about her until she was on Celebrity Masterchef in the UK a few weeks ago. No offence to her - but "Celebrity"??!! The others weren't much more famous, either!) I think she's really attractive. She's older than I thought. She's about 10 years older than me and I thought she was much closer to my age.

Che Mack, low minus

Revolver 13 Jul 2013, 13:33

Interesting discourse on Nana Mouskori. While it is a fairly low minus, it appears to be in the -2.00 to -3.00 range, and it seems unlikely that if she wasn't nearsighted in 1966 it wouldn't have gotten that high quickly. Next to the youtube clip posted by Astra are several other clips, clicked on one randomly, it was called Adeiu Angeline and while undated it appeared to be of the same vintage. Black and white, similar hair, etc. It's possible that in the 1966 clip (hosted by the late great Danny Kaye) that early in her career she'd go bareyed and using glasses as her signature didn't come until later. As mentioned, an interesting discourse, there are a few options.

lazysiow 13 Jul 2013, 10:50

No she likely wasn't that short sighted yet. For someone whose glasses were always seen on her and so defining of her image, she's fairly low minus. Here's a pic of here when she was younger, she was gorgeous :P

Astra 13 Jul 2013, 06:43

Nana Mouskouri without glasses (1966), did she wear contact lenses maybe ?

 09 Jul 2013, 18:42

If you pay closer attention, you notice she tweets about not wearing contacts vs wearing contacts. That's a relatively large difference between those two statuses.

Do you have any links?

lazysiow 08 Jul 2013, 13:09

In some of her older video blogs you can see her wearing prescription glasses. -1.5 is about right. Mostly not very flaterring for her but there's one where you can even see her sleeping while wearing a hipster type black pair and smiling about it.

She might talk a lot about it because she's one of us and doesnt know it?

Anon 07 Jul 2013, 17:41

She definitely wears contacts, she's tweeted about it many times. And will talk about that and her glasses in interviews from time to time. That's why I always wondered why I hadn't seen any pictures of her in them. Seems like if you talk about it that much, you'd wear them.

Soundmanpt 06 Jul 2013, 14:30


Just like Carrie says if you look and listen at 4 minutes in she says she wakes up and thinks that she doesn't need to wear her contacts for an awards show and then she gets there and can't read the prompter.

Not sure what she is making up???

 06 Jul 2013, 14:06

Not sure what source you are reading, Carrie.. but please point to it. There are many sources out there where Taylor Swift has stated she does NOT wear contact lenses, and in fact sees blurry without her glasses. She even says that in the interview link you posted. Pay attention, please. Don't make up MORE stuff... ok?

Soundmanpt 06 Jul 2013, 12:03


Good find! I know once she commented something about going into an optical shop and she picked this, as she called it, "ugly pair of super big glasses that she knew no one was ever going to buy" I think they are the ones in one of her videos. She has commented also that when she isn't preforming she is always wearing her glasses.

One thing a little surprising is that her prescription isn't stronger than -1.50 if she has been wearing glasses since she was really young. We all know that is usually when the eyes change the most is from youth and through your teens.

Carrie 06 Jul 2013, 06:27

Taylor Swift has a prescription of -1.5 and usually wears contacts. In this interview she tries on the interviewers glasses and he tells her that he is -1.5 and she says she has the same prescription. (from 4 minutes in)

nc 05 Jul 2013, 07:41

It seems like all the pictures you find of Taylor Swift, have little to no prescription. According to articles she has worn glasses since a very young age and is very reliant on them. I too would like to see some photos with an actual prescription

Anon 04 Jul 2013, 16:22

Soundmanpt 24 Jun 2013, 18:56


My first thought was that they are probably props for the video without any prescription, but a close look it appears they are a weak plus prescription. Lasik does seem to bring on the need for reading glasses at a quicker rate, but not usually that fast. Really it would make more sense if the glasses were minus since she may have had the lasik done even if her eyes hadn't become stable yet.

There is no law that says you can't have lasik even if your eyes haven't reached the stable point. Thye of course want your eyes to be stable for 18 -24 months for the best and more lasting results, but I am sure as long as your18 years old or older and you sign a release saying that they are not responsible for any vision changes you may have after the surgery.

Guido 24 Jun 2013, 16:55

Didn't Ms. Clarkson have LASIK a ways back? I think she used to be fairly nearsighted.

Carrie 23 Jun 2013, 18:05

I don't normally watch The Voice but did flick through it on the BBC iPlayer later just to see who did win. I was pleased Andrea won as she has a beautiful voice. Her glasses looked great on her. It's great that her reduced vision isn't going to hold her back from doing what she wants to do.

I had seen Andrea on trailers for the final but couldn't face watching the whole show. I'm not keen on tv talent shows, so I avoid The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent. Simon Cowell is responsible for these 2 and has made a lot of money selling the format around the world. The Dutch guy who created The Voice also created Big Brother and Deal Or No Deal - he has also made a lot of money. Even if you don't like the shows (like me)you have to admit that they are clever - Fairly cheap to make and millions of people love to watch them so advertisers will gladly spend a lot to get their ad shown during these shows (except for the UK version of The Voice which is on the BBC, so no ads.)which in turn makes a lot of money for the tv producers.

The only way I'd watch a tv talent show or the other shows I mentioned would be if a drop dead sexy woman with great glasses was on it. Even then I'd probably watch it on demand later and fast forward through it. (By the way I thought Andrea was pretty, but not sexy. I'm not being cruel - I wasn't put off by her strong glasses prescription. She's just not my type.)

Slit 23 Jun 2013, 10:14

Hats off to this girl who over came the challenges, more than the visual i am sure they had been teasing, bullying and name calling back at her childhood and also the different views of other through out the life because of her sight level.

Her talent is matched to none and let us all send her a greeting for success.

Well the guy's nickname is nickweymouth so maybe he's from Weymouth which is in England. The girl in question is from Northern Ireland which is part of the UK. Nickweymouth also appears to be a native English speaker. If I was to have a wild stab in the dark, I'd guess that the version of The Voice being referred to is unlikely to be the Kazakhstan version and is probably the UK version. There, not exactly rocket science is it?

The girl who won is called Andrea Begley, she's 27 and apparently lost most of her vision through congenital glaucoma. She wears fairly strong plus lenses, probably in the +8 to +10 region which presumably give some improvement to what vision she has. She has to be helped on and off the stage and so is clearly severely vision impaired.

In an earlier blog she mentions her eyes stinging, always wanting glasses and probably heading to Specsavers next week This was in 2010! Either she didn't need glasses or more likely she didn't get any even if she needed them. I keep searching for photos of her with glasses just in case she has got some but so far no luck.

Sad to say but it seems now people think the real world is a soap opera and when you kill someone they somehow re-appear after a few days or weeks. They don't get it, that when they kill someone that person isn't ever going to come back, there gone for good. Real life isn't a video game. You don't push a button and start a new game, "GAME OVER" is for good.

In England this week 2 people are on trial for plotting to rob and kill the singer Joss Stone. Thankfully they didn't succeed. I don't understand why anyone would want to hurt her. She seems very nice (I don't know her personally), she has a great singing voice, she is very attractive and her speaking voice is sooo sexy. I know she sometimes wears glasses so I thought I'd see if I could find any recent ones of her in glasses and I found these from February this year

Soundmanpt 11 Mar 2013, 19:38

I think Katy's glasses are most likely a very weak minus based on how she was wearing them. She kept them on during the game as well as when she was driving.

Couldn't agree more, they're producing some great stuff. Brittany has definitely given me more confidence to wear my glasses out in public more. Hopes she doesn't give in and switch to contacts, though she seems very self-confidant so I doubt she will.

Juicebox 20 Feb 2013, 19:46


I know what you mean. Not many indie bands are fronted by women, let alone those who wear glasses! She has quite a few pairs I think. As I said I've been a fan for a while and she changes them up which is pretty rad. Not many frontmen wear glasses either though. I dont know what I'd do if I ever saw Julian Casablancas in a pair of hipster specs...probably faint as his sunglasses are pretty much glued to his head. But that's where Matthew Gray Gubler in series two of Criminal Minds comes in...haha. I listen to a *lot* of older music too and of course people like Buddy Holly and Morrissey wore them. It's funny cos those styles are what's popular now, it's kinda gone full circle! I'm in the Uk too :)

Carrie 20 Feb 2013, 16:57

Juicebox - you have the same sort of music taste as me! My brothers got me into it when I was quite young (I love the bands that were around when I was too little to appreciate them properly like Elastica and Garbage. I have copied their cds from my brothers!) I first saw Brittany in the NME a while ago (for non UK Eyescene readers NME is a well known rock/alternative music paper in the UK). Great voice. Good to see a "well covered" lady in a band in addition to wearing glasses. Both of these are unusual, even in the more alternative bands. Can't think of a female fronted band where that female regularly wears glasses in public.

chrisb 20 Feb 2013, 14:02


I'm really glad I found them on youtube and that they're known to the ES crowd. For me, as an aged white mal,e its great to hear some new black R&B music (been into it since the 60s with Motown, stax, etc) Its odd you can almost hear Janis Joplin in her voice.

Anyway to keep on topic, lets hope the band does really well and we get to see her Brittany in many different new frames over the coming months.

Juicebox 19 Feb 2013, 16:25

Brittany is such a great role model, I love her style. She's what I consider rock and roll because she doesn't care about anything but the music. She doesn't need a leather jacket and skinny jeans to back up a rock aesthetic because man - that voice is pretty unbelievable! So jealous! She can rock up in pretty casual clothes and glasses (love her frames) and still blow people away. Alabama Shakes have been up there in my favourite bands for a while, I'm not normally one to enjoy female singers (more of a Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, Libertines kinda gal myself) but she's got me sold with that voice.

Melyssa, thanks for the compliment to Marieke. I will share it with her. Mind you, she posed in the falling snow without any extra protective underwear, just the same underwear she used when we went to that gala party eight years ago. One photo of Marieke in the snow is now part of my portfolio on Mayhem Model and it will be fun, asking freelance models for future photo shoots if they have that kind of stamina :). About my collection of glasses: I was in an optician's shop just a few days after being on television (about my first exhibition with catwalk) and the staff said straightaway, "here's a man who has more glasses than we have in the shop". On the other hand, if I would tell my partner Nel about your glasses collection she would probably be jealous. She always had only one pair of glasses until we met. Now she has some more but nothing compared to your collection with up to date prescription!

Melyssa 05 Feb 2013, 06:48

You're welcome, Crystal Veil. By the way, if I had in my possession as many pretty pairs of glasses as you have for your models, I would be changing frames every hour. Also, I am jealous that Marieke could pose sleeveless in the snow. I need an overcoat just to look at the photos. :)

Soundmanpt 04 Feb 2013, 18:06


Your choice is pretty much in line with what more than half said they planned on doing. Of course there were a few that planned on getting contacts just before the wedding and a few that said they could probably get by without the aid of glasses or contacts. Some said they would keep them on for the ceremony and just take them off for pictures. That one seemed a bit strange, but at least they will pictures both ways. but generally most said it like you did, that you wear glasses full time and everyone now knows you with glasses so that makes good sense to be as well. Also interesting that you said you would get new glasses for the big day. That was something that a good number also said they would do.

Melyssa 04 Feb 2013, 15:02


It's more important to be able to see your surroundings on what could be the greatest day of your life. And if you wear glasses full-time, that's what everyone else remembers you by.

I had worn glasses for 37 years before my wedding nearly 12 years ago. (It's been that long? LOL) That day I wore my white cat's-eyes while getting ready with my entourage. Not wanting my eyewear to be the focus of the whole shebang, I switched to unisex clear frames for the photos, the ceremony, and the reception, and I wore red drop-temples for the honeymoon night -- the first glasses my husband ever saw me in a couple of years earlier on our first date.

Carrie 04 Feb 2013, 14:48

Rihanna is incredibly hot. So jealous of her amazing body! Not really into her music, though. I like the fact she is wearing glasses but I'm not to keen on her choice of frames.

I probably would wear glasses for wedding photos. They are part of me now. People are more used to seeing me with them on than off. It's the same with Gemma. We have discussed marriage (well Civil Partenrship - Gay marriage is not legal in the UK yet) with each other as several people have suggested as we have been together for 2 years now. But we feel we are still a bit young as we both turn just 20 this year. We are very happy together as we are and we are really looking forward to moving in together later this year. If we ever did get married or the equivalent I would want to get new glasses for the ceremony and the reception just as I would want to get new clothes for the day. "Sensible" glasses to go with the "sensible" clothes for the ceremony and then some more casual or fun glasses to go with my party clothes at the reception.

gwgs 04 Feb 2013, 09:43

I agree, she seems to be a bit of a 'rebel' in terms of how she has portrayed herself over the last couple of years - what with the various different haircuts, scantily clad/half naked instagram shots and as you quite rightly said, the acceptance of the scandalous behaviour of Chris Brown. I am almost embarassed to like her music!

Having said that, she should be congratulated on forgiving him, not many people would've done so, and we don't the background behind this, but let's not digress too far off the original subject matter.

Soundmanpt 04 Feb 2013, 08:36


I would agree it does seem to show some distortion in her lenses which certainly could be due to a prescription.

I have to admit that I am not much of a fan of hers anymore since she is back with Chris Brown. I lost a lot of respect for her when she went back with him. She would have been a great spokes person against abuse when he beat the heck out of her, but sadly like so many she doesn't get it that people that do that will do it again and again. There is no excuse for any man to ever beat a woman period.

gwgs 04 Feb 2013, 05:38

Here's a link to a few photos of Rihanna wearing glasses which seem to have a hint of a prescription to them;

It's the first time I've seen her wearing glasses, but after searching "Rihanna glasses" on the above site, there are several other articles with her wearing bold black frames similar to this.

I must say the partially shaved head look is a real turn off for me, but nice to see her in glasses.

Soundmanpt 03 Feb 2013, 12:37


Being 64 I well remember those glasses. Yes they were the in thing back then.

And as much as I hate to tell you but your probably right in 30 years or so you probably will be looking at pictures of yourself and asking "What was I thinking"? Nothing you can do about that though. I'm sure there are many that look back at old pictures and laugh at the glasses they were wearing.

There is much talk if you go to some of the web sites talking about whether they should wear their glasses or not on their wedding day. Some interesting comments both ways.

So their is a good question, if you were to get married tomorrow would you or wouldn't you wear your glasses. I think for you since you could probably see well enough without but just if you prefer wearing glasses or not, but for Gemma she probably wouldn't have a choice anymore and would have to wear hers to see.

Carrie 03 Feb 2013, 06:32

The BBC have been showing 1970s editions of music chart show Top of the Pops. I find these really interesting as I'm really into music and a lot of acts in the 70s influenced modern musicians even if like me it was way before they were born. Thankfully most of the fashions stayed in the 70s. As an example I give you Althea & Donna I like big glasses but those are not nice at all! Some of the male musicians I've seen on the show have been pretty awful too. Maybe in 30 of 40 years time I'll look back at photos of myself and think how awful my glasses were!

That does surprise me because i would have thought my the great quality of your photos that your camera was most likely a much more expensive one than a simple digital one. Your right that does give me hope. As you say it can't hurt to try and see how I do. Like anything the more I try hopefully the better I may get at it. When i start I may well take you up in asking for your help or suggestions to make them better.

Crystal Veil 31 Oct 2012, 13:13

Soundmanpt (Oct 25th),

you may be surprised to hear this but my camera is digital and it was ultra cheap (€ 80). Your digital camera is probably better than mine.

I knew little about photography when starting the "Ladies behind crystal veil" project and even at this stage my technical knowledge is very limited. It was - and still is - simply a process of "learning by doing".

Fortunately the technical aspects are just one of many factors involved in GWG photography. Being fascinated by the combination of ladies and prescription glasses is quite instrumental. It's also quite important to reassure the model at the very start of a photo shoot, then to monitor closely if she is feeling at ease or getting tired, and so on. Being clear about the effect you are seeking is another factor. This helps the model to play her role in an (inter)active way. A good photo shoot is the product of team work between equals.

Another factor is speed. There is nothing so boring for a model as a photographer fiddling endlessly with the umpteen options of his camera. If you work fast, the model will go with the flow.

I would greatly welcome it if you give it a try. Aviator 0-0 puts a completely different "feel" in his portraits than I do. No doubt you will put yet another kind of "feel" into it when you start taking pictures of GWG's. That would enrichen this community.

If you have specific questions about photo shoots I am ready to share with you what I have found out so far.

Mark 31 Oct 2012, 03:55

Danny, yes you are correct, the lenses would be thicker.

However when your vision gets past a certain point, using high index lenses gives you worse vision than with low index.

The question becomes:

Do you want to lose even more vision (strong plus glasses already restrict vision and cause distortions) than you've already lost just to have your glasses look a little thinner?

The problem is the optical companies make more profit from high index lenses, so they're pushed on customers and abuse the vanity of most glasses wearers with "oh they'll look so thick and ugly" instead of "well if you go for those lenses yes they'll be thinner but your vision will be worse"

Hyperfan 30 Oct 2012, 04:10

Dear Katie,

Thanks for your kind reply, and sorry, but impossible here to type in Arial 36 !

So you have one eye with a +19 lenses, and the other with a +25 lenses in the same frame ? ... and you dont have any frame only for distance, or for close ?

What kind of frame do you like to wear, and are theses lenses "only" high index or lenticular ?

Hope to read you again...

Best regards from France.

Danny 29 Oct 2012, 13:29

I don't like to correct people, but surely a low index lens would make the lenses much thicker????

Mark 29 Oct 2012, 11:31

Having watched those vid's of diana again, the song with her sister definitely seem stronger, high index too.

The high index seems like a bad idea for her though, if she has such little vision why would they use lenses that cause even more distortions?

If they swapped her over to a low index, yes they'd be thinner but i reckon she'd get a lot more useful vision out of it.

Weeks Katie 29 Oct 2012, 11:07

Hi hyper fan

I love your name!!!!

I used to wear bifocals but after I got cataracts I used got 1 eye for each prescription ( 1 distance , 1 reding)

I need lots of help :( I'm reaalllly close to the ground for another reason so I live in a world where all I can see are legs, bums and bags.

I can see a few feet, dunno how many, but its less than 6.

Reading is ok if the font is size 36 and its arial. Times ne w roman I can see if its 48.

I sometimes chat in lens and that works with my adaptive tech (zoom text)




Hyperfan 29 Oct 2012, 10:43

Dear Weelz Katie,

Maybe you are right : some "X" on the floor, and she will stay right in this mark, while singing or talking.

I suppose you are right : if she doesn't move, maybe she is quite unable to see the mark, and right again about the spotlight : maybe a lot of reflection on her lenses, and that dont help her...

If I may ask : despite your narrow vision, how do you manage with your glasses ? Can you sea clearly in the "tunnel vision", or do you need some help as Diana ? Bifocals or two frames, one for close, other for distance ?

Best regards from France

Weelz katie 29 Oct 2012, 10:03


I wear +19 and +25 lenses (1 for reading other for distances) and I have nystagmus

This means that I have very narrow vision, and I'm guessing that there are lots of bright lights that are facing Diana when she walks onto sing.

There is probably a tiny mark on the floor to show her where to stand, but that probably doesn't help her.

I wish I could sing as good as her!




Eyestein 29 Oct 2012, 08:14

Re: Diana

In the other thread there were two numbers mentioned in connection with her glasses - +14 and +19. I think she is wearing +19 where she performs with her sister. It looks like maybe she wears +14 at times to widen her field of vision when quality of close range focus is less important. Her field of vision must be extremely narrow with her full prescription.

She seems like a very nice girl. Her sister looks nice too.

Owlish 26 Oct 2012, 06:56

The Romanian singer, Diana Cazan, has been discussed on the "Seen on the web" thread, and I'm still somewhat obsessed with her, so, here is a nice video of her and her sister doing a traditional Romanian song a couple of years ago:

+14? Oh, yes. I believe it!

In the following video, I think her real personality shows forth. The video quality isn't great. She is singing in a Bucharest pub with a male vocalist who is blind. She joins him at about the 17:30 mark in the vid.

Nothing of the caliber you do. Your the master. Any pictures I produce would show how little I know about photography, but it would be nice to start taking pictures of the ladies that I get glasses for and I don't think any of them would object. By now I would at least have a large volume of pictures. i only have a digital camera so not nearly as good as the camera you must use for your shoots.

Carrie 25 Oct 2012, 17:38

I don't know how recent the photo is. It was just a lucky find - I just Googled "Heidi Range Glasses". I didn't even know she needed glasses, just hoped she might. During my searching I read she normally wears contacts. I'm not really in to their music. It's not bad, just not my sort of thing. The current line up is completely different to the original one as each girl left she was replaced with another one just as if the record company had spare girls ready to join the group. Apparently the original members have now reformed using their first names as the group name!

Heidi is the most attractive of the current line up and always seems to be smiling which makes her more attractive. It would be great if she wore her glasses in public.

Crystal Veil 25 Oct 2012, 15:13


the Sugababes were big in Europe. Their eyecatcher was Keisha Buchanan, even though she does not wear glasses.

By the way, I read on another thread that you consider taking up GWG photography. All I can say is: don't hesitate, it's always fun and often quite rewarding to do!

Soundmanpt 25 Oct 2012, 10:37


Having never heard of the "Sugababes" I went into "you Tube" and found quite a few videos of them. It seems there were 3 of them and one girl quit leaving the other two as seen in a Nobel Prize concert. Heidi is the blonde young lady from what I could tell? Very pretty girl, is the picture you posted of her a recent photo? If so, I am a bit surprised that her choice of glasses would be so simple. Still though very attractive. Thanks for posting.

Carrie 28 Jul 2012, 23:58

Good news! I am forgiven. I apologised for what I did and she apologised for over reacting but was still a bit annoyed about what I did. We kissed and made up. If I had been caught with another woman (or even a man!) rather than just a video of one I think that would have probably been the end of our relationship. She said "When we are together and you feel horny and I am asleep, just wait until I wake up and we'll have sex! What we each do when we feel horny but can't be together is up to each other." We didn't go out but had a quiet night in and several glasses of wine later we fell asleep together on the sofa. We didn't hear my parents come in. They were probably surprised to find us in! One of them took a photo of me and my girlfriend asleep on the sofa and printed it out and put it on the coffee-table in front of us. Such a cute photo! They had then taken our glasses off and put them on the table and went to bed without waking us. It wasn't until I woke up at around 3:30 am needing a pee I realised what happened. I woke my girlfriend up as I moved and said we should go to bed. I showed her the photo and she loved it. I'll get my Dad to email it to her. We both fell asleep again when we went to bed but I woke up again because I was too warm and needed to pee again. As it's now nearly 6:00am I'm going back to bed before my girlfriend (currently sleeping deeper than a hibernating bear!) wakes up and catches me on Eyescene - now that would be awkward!

To the anonymous poster - My girlfriend would be even more annoyed if I was masturbating over a man's picture! I would still say I was bi but definitely more in to women than men now. Only Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt could tempt me back to being with a man! I don't ever look for photos or videos of men in glasses, only women in glasses.

Soundmanpt 28 Jul 2012, 22:00


Maybe its just me, but its not like you were caught with another woman. God forbid what she would do if she were to catch you with someone else having sex. There would likely be bloodshed. You can't tell me that most men watching a Kate Uptown video wouldn't be doing just what you were doing. Really its only fantasy land anyway. My chances of ever being within 50 feet of Kate Uptown is about the same as being struck by lightning 50 times. And I am sure your odds on being with Carly is about the same odds. If anything I think she should have just got a laugh out of it. Whats the difference if as you say you go off to the bathroom or if your sitting in front of your computer monitor? I guess next time you will need to find a magazine with Carly's picture in it and take that to the bathroom with you. In short your girlfriend is making a big ol' mountain out of a very small mole hill.

 28 Jul 2012, 18:07

uh Carrie you should be masturbating to guys. that might the real issue here.

lazysiow 28 Jul 2012, 14:00

Good for you Carrie, I'm sure you're gorgeous anyway.

She sounds really surprised but will probably get over it. It's natural to find others attractive, but still feels like shit when this happens to anybody. We're hard wired to be upset whenever happens though since "true love" makes other normally attractive people less attractive. IT's only something that becomes more bearable with age

Carrie 28 Jul 2012, 11:40

I've just got myself into trouble with my girlfriend!

She was snoozing on my bed and I decided to watch the Youtube videos of Carly Rae Jepson I linked to last month. Now, as you probably remember, I quite fancy Miss Jepson and seeing her with the big glasses again got me turned on. Unfortunately for me my girlfriend woke and caught me watching the video (bad enough) but also touching myself in an "intimate area". She was seriously unimpressed (major understatement - she was livid!)! She asked me why I was masturbating with a video of another woman and why that woman was Carly Rae Jepson of all people! I mumbled a few excuses but they either weren't good enough or she just chose not to listen. She knows I fancy CRJ but maybe she didn't realise how much. I know I shouldn't have done it but I was feeling horny and needed to do something about it. I could have gone to the toilet to pleasure myself or waited until my girlfriend woke up but I didn't know how long she was going to sleep and she gets grumpy if I wake her (even for sex). Anyway she went off in a huff and locked herself in the bathroom. She can't go back to her house without coming back to my room as she left her bag and her glasses in here. She might be shortsighted but she could see well enough without her glasses on to see what I was doing to myself and then looked over my shoulder to see the computer screen. That must be just close enough for her to see the screen.

Surely most, if not all people masturbate occasionally even if they are in a relationship with a good sex life? I did when I was with my past boyfriends and my girlfriend does, she does know I know - her bedroom "toys" aren't always in the same place when I go over to hers. It was bad of me to do it without her. I'm not sure what she is more pissed off about - the fact I was masturbating whilst looking at another women or that it was CRJ or that I was pleasuring myself and she wasn't part of it.

Hopefully she will calm down soon. Every time I try to talk to her through the bathroom door she tells me to "F**k off!" I know she's seriously angry when she says that as she doesn't swear much. I don't think she'd break up with me because of this but you never know. I'm going to do some serious apologising and grovelling as soon as she comes out of the bathroom. I love her so much. I don't want anyone else, not even CRJ.

Amanda Warner has fielded some questions about those specs:

Women's Wear Daily (May 2011):

> Not surprisingly, after wearing the same custom Seventies white-framed prescription eyeglasses almost constantly for the past five years, she says she's really more about accessories. She counts Zana Bayne's leather harnesses and Shape Shiftr's tights and leggings among her current favorites for the stage. But it's her beloved glasses that complete her ensemble.

> "If you don't have any money or anything to wear, it's a really great thing to make a look," she says. "There are a lot of glasses in this shape, but there's something very special about these."

Esquire (August 2010):

> ESQ: How did you get started with the glasses?

> AW: I've had those for about four years. Honestly I just thought, "I'll wear really garishly loud jewelry and eyewear." I always have. I never learned how to put on makeup, and these seemed kind of like putting on makeup. I was playing minimal techno, and I thought, "Oh, that'd be cool, because people will recognize me." But they have my real prescription.

Her voice is better now than in the videos which are from 2010. I have just noticed how kissable her lips are! Yum!


+3 for Jaydn's glasses? That does sound strong. I guessed at +1.5 to +2 as they looked a simlar strength to my current glasses. I wouldn't be surprised if she wears them a lot more than for just reading now.

I think they could be near +3.00. They do look to be rather strong for being her first glasses. One thing she should have gotten was AR coating on them. I think she would find that it would have relaxed her eyes more when shes reading or on the computer.

I tried to find a recent "You Tube" but I didn't see anything more recent. As strong as they appear I would think she needs them on the computer by now.

I could be wrong, but it really looks like her glasses don't even have any lenses in them. At least I don't see any signs of lenses. In the past Katy has been photographed wearing several different styles of glasses and most are retro and they have had lenses in them, not sure if the lenses were prescription or not but at least they had lenses. I am not a fan of plano glasses but I really hate the idea of glasses without any lenses even worse.

I am not a singer or musician but if I was I would have a big problem with stage fright, but to be like Taylor Swift it would work being nearsighted as she probably is looking out into her audience and all she sees is blur. That would be one way to not have to worry about stage fright.

John S 26 May 2012, 10:29

What's interesting is that Taylor Swift has commented before that she doesn't wear contacts, so when she tells the kid she is pretty blind without them, the kid doesn't realize she's been pretty blind all day with her.

They are prescription lenses but I don't know if they are hers. I'm not too keen on the frames but she's still hot.

Carly Rae Jepsen wearing glasses during a concert in 2010

Just before she puts the glasses on in the 2nd video she's holding them and the look like they could be a weak minus prescription.

Great combination - good looking girl, lovely body enhanced by her outfit and she's wearing glasses. Oh and her voice is ok but I can't concentrate on her voice when I see her!

If anyone else has got links to similar or better videos or photos please post!

(If my girlfriend catches me looking at any more photos of Carly I am so dead!)

Soundmanpt 27 Apr 2012, 15:05


Not long after I found that version there was a story on an entertainment show talking about that girl. Seems that Justin Bieber heard the song and liked it so much he signed her to a recording deal with his company. They interviewed her about being signed by him and she was thrilled and was really surprised when someone told her about that video you are referring to. She wasn't in that video but Justin and his friends made that just because they liked it.

Glad you got back in.

Carrie 27 Apr 2012, 14:42

I've seen the alternative video for Carly Rae Jepson's "Call Me Maybe" that Soundmanpt mentioned on 14th April. The girl wearing real glasses in the video isn't Carly but she is good looking (I don't know who she is).

I can't believe I'm saying this but I do actually like Call Me Maybe a little bit now. It is so bloody catchy! I have watched the official video several times too! In my mind, at the end of the video when the guy she has been trying to get the attention of walks away from her and gives his phone number to one of the male members of her band (mouthing "Call me maybe" to him)I would go over to Carly and give her my number and ask her to call me!

I am not telling my girlfriend or anyone else I know about how I would like the video to end or that I like the song a little bit, my rock-chick image would be ruined forever!

Yoyo 26 Apr 2012, 11:31

Those are NOT reading glasses, clearly a nearsighted prescription. You can tell because they minify, creating cut-in of her cheeks on the sides. If they were for reading, they'd magnify her eyes and you'd see no cut-in.

lentifan 26 Apr 2012, 10:26

And if she's wearing contact lenses or had Lasik or similar, that would explain why she now needs reading glasses.

Soundmanpt 26 Apr 2012, 10:19

It would seem that Eddi Reader is wearing reading glasses. That would explain why she is looking over the top of them but keeps them on so she can read what is in from of her. Also would explain why she doesn't really need them to preform unless she need to she something on a music sheet or the lyrics maybe.

Crystal Veil 26 Apr 2012, 10:06


thanks for this update. I checked her photo gallery and saw a vast majority of pictures without glasses so I assumed that she had switched to contact lenses.

The pictures there you can't tell anything from. But I went looking about and I found a version of that song you hate "Call Me Maybe" and it has quite a cast of performers on it. Several young guys that I heard of except Justin Bieber, but the young ladies in it I recognize all but Kim Crossman. The other girls are Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, and of course Carly Rae Jepsen. In the video there is a girl that is wearing real glasses and I think it is either Kim Crossman or Carly Rae Jepsen.

Carrie 13 Apr 2012, 19:43

I found these pics of Carly Rae Jepsen with glasses on her head

I can't tell if they are real or not but I would like to see her wearing glasses properly. Her "Call Me Baby" song is annoyingly catchy and is getting played loads on the radio as it's number 1 in the singles chart over here. Not my sort of music, I'm more into guitar bands as I'm bit of a rock chick but she's not bad looking! Just to be clear I am interested in her physically and not musically!

I like her glasses they look good on her, but after hearing the interview I found a recent live concert of Ingrid Michaelson doing an REM song Nightswimmer and she is wearing the same glasses but she needs to get them adjusted as they slid down her nose to where she had to push them up 3 times and when she finished the song they were back down again. she is a great singer and musician as well as being a great GWG.

There for a while it seemed she was going to wear contacts, but great to see she seems fine with glasses again.

Did you notice that the video you put up was also her most recent? She only put it up on Feb 16th. It could be that she has just gotten glasses for the first time as they look rather weak. It will be interesting to see if she will be wearing glasses in her future videos.

your impression was correct. Ingrid is the only person playing. The director's clever device of giving us shots of her nailpolish gives it away.

the other musician to whom I referred was Danielle

who's linked in AP's post on 18th dec.

I had a feeling you were a musician. I do play, but wouldnt deem to call myself a musician.

Crystal Veil 19 Dec 2011, 17:30

Thanks Chris for posting this. Being a musician of sorts myself, her fine looks in glasses soon kinda faded in the distance when I zoomed in on the song. If there are two musicians in the clip it escaped me. I was under the impression that she did a "Mike Oldfield", singing and playing all the instruments including the bass (Beatle Paul McCartney used to play one like this). The clip is attractive and the song is nice because the arrangements are simple, without overdoing anything. Sorry if this music talk is off topic - so yes, a nice GWG. Thank you!

chrisB 19 Dec 2011, 17:07

New video from Ingrid Michaelson. I think we've seen the glasses before on recent videos. For those who like such things there are good shots of power ring.

Ingid looks and sings beautifully.

For me, the other highlight is the vintage 'cello' Hofner base.

Its also interesting to contrast Ingrid and Danielle (eats the sandwich.) There's a video of Danielle not wearing glasses and her eyes do some very odd things.

Back to the music tho. I'm continually amazed by the range and quality of US and Canadian female vocalists.

Most UK (white) girl vocalists try to sound like Black female vocalists from 20 - 30 years ago.

Guido 19 Dec 2011, 14:25

Re: Pixie,

Guesser, I would guess -4 or less.

Carrie, do you think the difference in script might be due to the twist of her head? In two of the photos that appear to be more straight on, the difference does not appear that great.

Specs4Me 19 Dec 2011, 14:17

Carrie, I don't know that I would agree with that. I looked at some of the other pics in that group and found a shot that gave a better view of the right lens in which I was able to see power rings and cut-in. It is hard to really tell unless one has the opportunity to compare both lenses simultaneously, at least for me.

Carrie 19 Dec 2011, 13:53

I was just having another look at the Pixie Lott photos I linked to and it looks like her left eye has a stronger prescription than the right eye.

The sexy British singer Pixie Lott seems to be quite short sighted. She must wear contacts most of the time as her prescription looks stronger than my girlfriend's.

This set of photos shows her wearing fake glasses - I don't understand why someone who wears glasses for real would wear fake ones. But she looks good in them anyway

She is wearing some chunky black frames with real prescription lenses here

I love the vintage style frames she's wearing in these photos! They suit her much better than the chunky black ones.

Could someone estimate her prescription?

"Not very strong" indeed? They can't be very strong if they don't even have any lenses in them. It's great that the chic likes wearing glasses, I mean empty frames, but she should at least have some plano Non-prescription) lenses put onto them. I can tolerate someone with perfect vision wanting to wear glasses as long as they at least have clear lenses in them, but I think no lenses at all looks totally crazy.

Alexandra Ungureanu, a famous romanian singer:

A rough (google) translation of the text:

Alexandra Ungureanu is very chic

She is not part of any event among women who wear fancy dresses and high heels, but has a style and unmistakable contrast pattern which ensures normal. At the launch of a cafe in Bucharest, Alexandra Ungureanu chose an outfit very chic, slightly eccentric, in which he combined elements of masculine and feminine accessories.

The singer wore black pants with white polka dots, a white shirt over which he placed a gray leather vest, neck and wore a blue bow tie. Thick-framed glasses gives a roguish air, a sign that Alexandra loves to play with what he has in the closet.

gwgs 09 May 2011, 06:31

Thunderbugs were quite popular back in the late 90s (I think! time does pass us by rather quickly). Jane Vaughan was a lead singer in this group, and a magnificent gwg.

Sadly they were almost in direct competition with Atomic Kitten - who had a gwg of their own in Kerry Katona, and whilst Atomic Kitten's career soared, the Thunderbugs unfortunately went the other way - much to my dismay

Nelly Furtado is a decent pop star/singer, with a decent prescription that can be seen when she wears her glasses

Melyssa 06 May 2011, 06:43

While it's not exactly "recent," the other Jewish woman besides me who wears cat's-eyes a lot has had a decent musical career -- Lisa Loeb.

Val 05 May 2011, 15:38

Sadly, the only recent example of a female vocalist who became famous while wearing glasses, is Anastacia.

I am not trying to compare their talents. Anastacia became famous after singing backing vocals for a lot of great artists and her voice is quite unique. Lia Alexander is very young and has a lot of catching up to do.

Crystal Veil 05 May 2011, 06:09

Val, I feel the same way about Lia. She is a talent but closer to Hilary Duff than she is to Anastacia. It seems that she is also into Celtic music but none of her video clips show the evidence. A pity! She is less outspoken in her frame choices than Anastacia was, more the "girl next door" type, but nice and natural.

Val 05 May 2011, 04:36

I've never heard before about Lia Alexander (aka Lia Duff), but I'm starting to like her. I just appreciate that she is not like the other young girls who want to be famous. Put contacts, get LASIK or just go bare eyed because the record labels or movie studios think they will make more money.

A short biography:

I hope that she will get a good producer who will make her famous like Anastacia.

Jan 04 May 2011, 10:01

Anyone nows this? Lia Alexander. Seems a little crazy and the music is awful imho, but...

Carrie 03 May 2011, 15:04

They are probably prescription glasses as it says she borrowed them off a fellow judge on the tv talent show she was on. Looking at the way she's wearing them she probably can't see much with them on. Sadly, I don't think she actually wears glasses at all. She wears some fake ones in early part of the video for "Poison"

Elton John was on Radio 2 with Chris Evans this morning and said that he had lenses implanted in his eyes.

Aubrac 28 Jan 2011, 12:07

Elton John

I think earlier pictures of Elton show him wearing about -7.00 glasses, I am sure there will be some comments on this !!

At his age he will probably need some, albeit much lesser correction for distance, and help with close work. I would guess he will continue with 'trademark' glasses possibly with varifocal lenses.

He did have the procedure, but will probably always wear glasses with plano, or light prescription lenses in public since glasses were always a trademark for him. I would have loved to have bought a pair of his old glasses that he auctioned off for charity years back.

Eclipse 23 Jan 2011, 08:40

I saw OK Magazine with Elton John on the cover and was thinking about when he announced he was going to have laser eye surgery on TV. Does anyone know whether he didn't have it, had it and his eyes have regressed or is just wearing glasses for show?

So without further ado, here is I Kissed a Myope:

This was never the way I planned, not my intention

I got so brave, drink in hand, lost my discretion

Those specs that you see through, just wanna try them on

I'm curious for you caught my attention

I kissed a myope, I liked it, I even licked his glasses

I kissed a myope, just tried it, I hope my plus friend don't mind it

It felt so wrong, it felt so right, don't mean I'm in love tonight

I kissed a myope, I liked it, I liked it

You know I like your plastic frames, they really flatter

You're my experimental game, just human nature

Not what good myopes do, not how they should behave

My head gets so confused, hard to obey

I kissed a myope, I liked it, I even licked his glasses

I kissed a myope, just tried it, I hope my plus friend don't mind it

It felt so wrong, it felt so right, don't mean I'm in love tonight

I kissed a myope, I liked it, I liked it

Us myopes are so magical, thick lenses, frames, so touchable

Those squinting eyes, so kissable, too good to deny it

It ain't no big deal, it's innocent

I kissed a myope, I liked it, I even licked his glasses

I kissed a myope, just tried it, I hope my plus friend don't mind it

It felt so wrong, it felt so right, don't mean I'm in love tonight

I kissed a myope, I liked it, I liked it

I read that Avril Lavigne has astigmatism in one eye. So her glasses are probably real.

There is a woman with amazing glasses in the current series of the UK version of The Apprentice I would love to have glasses like hers but I don't think they would suit me. I don't know if the video clips work outside the UK but everyone should be able to see her photo. More video clips will be added each week she doesn't get fired. I haven't seen any of the other women wear glasses but I have seen one of the men wear glasses occasionally. I can't remember which one though. Obviously if you like much older men in glasses (not for me thanks!)then Nick Hewer, one of Lord Sugar's aides, wears glasses (Nick's photo is at the bottom of the page)

Soundmanpt 25 Aug 2010, 23:48


If your wanting your lenses to have a thick look they are great for that. I think that may be the one thing that may keep the bigger frames from becoming too popular with the young ladies. That style is fine for people with rather light rxs, but if your rx is very high and you don't want thick lenses it will force you to pay extra to get high index lenses. I've ordered the same style frame as Miss Duff is wearing for several young ladies, but they have all had very weak rxs. I doubt that they would be happy with that frame if their rxs were around -5.00. Don't get me wrong, at first I didn't like that look, but after these ladies got them I actually think they look very nice.

Jennifer 25 Aug 2010, 13:32

I think you're right, Val. I've been noticing more and more teen girls wearing the Joe Jonas glasses. Those frames are very bold. I have yet to see a girl wearing those frames with a significant prescription. So far, it's only been low minus. Who knows, I may go for those frames, too...

Val 25 Aug 2010, 13:24

FaNaTiKX, I like also very much the pictures with Demi Lovato. After Joe Jonas started to wear glasses almost everywhere he went, I think that Demi is another powerfull role model, that can persuade teenagers to wear glasses more instead of contacts, because it's "cool".

Maybe this one has been posted before, it's about Hillary Duff: . Look also at the coments.

Great! That's how I felt when Loving Spoonful hit the charts with the song. Sweet memories....

I was a singer-songwriter at the time but it took me another 35 years before writing my own song in praise of GWG's. The song is called "Crystal Veil" and it will be played as background music to the video of my exhibition "Ladies behind crystal veil" (Sept 16th in Enschede, The Netherlands). I intend to post the lyrics of the song here on Eye Scene by the time the video is ready

All4Eyes 15 Aug 2010, 20:01

OK, I didn't alter the lyrics on this one too much, but I just had to say a few words about the plight of the poor "bilensual" OO:

Loving Spoonfuls' Did you ever have to make up your mind-ES version

Did you ever have to make up your mind?

Pick up on one and leave the other one behind

It's not often easy, and not often kind

Did you ever have to make up your mind?

Did you ever have to finally decide?

Say yes to one and let the other one ride

There's so many changes, and tears you must hide

Did you ever have to finally decide?

Sometimes there's one with big blue eyes, cute as a bunny

then one with tiny green ones, you think she's your honey

And just when you think she's that one in the world

Your heart gets stolen by some astigmatic girl

And then you know you better make up your mind

Pick up on one and leave the other one behind

It's not often easy, and not often kind

Did you ever have to make up your mind?

Sometimes you dig a hyperope the moment you kiss her

And then you get distracted by her myope sister

Those glowing plus lenses, they get you each time

But those white power rings sure mess with your mind

Then you bet you'd better finally decide!

And say yes to one and let the other one ride

There's so many changes, and tears you must hide

Did you ever have to finally decide

About those pictures of Madonna, it says: "tournage scenes pour WE", it means that she is filming some movie. So the frames and her looks may be part of the character she plays.

All4Eyes 10 Aug 2010, 21:23

This isn't about musicians really, but it's a song parody, so thought I'd put it here. It's based on the Beatle's "I get by with a little help from my friends".





























Presby L 10 Aug 2010, 15:26

Those are definitely prescription glasses for Madonna. She has been seen in public with reading glasses for several years now and it looks like these are first pair of progressives. I think they look quite nice on her Melyssa

Melyssa 10 Aug 2010, 12:26


I don't recall any personal knowledge of Katy Perry until I saw her picture in the local Sunday paper's TV section, a small picture of her wearing those glasses. Those frames are hot, certainly more than Ma-donut's choice.

Melyssa 10 Aug 2010, 12:24

Madonna looks like she's wearing glasses normally worn by 80-year-old men (well, at least through 1980). That's one frame I would never want.

Soundmanpt 10 Aug 2010, 12:13


Pretty sure her glasses have a prescription. If you notice she has sunglasses hanging from her top as well. I doubt she would bother with fake glasses and have shades as well.

We must remember she is not all that young anymore, they could easily be bifocals, not saying they are.

Jennifer 10 Aug 2010, 12:05

That picture of Madonna makes her look tired and older. For a woman who obsessed with looking youthful, those choice of frames make her look older.

CRYSTAL VEIL Thank you, Not sure why I have this picture in my mind!!! Mabey it's what i wanted to see, who knows !

Soundmanpt 09 Aug 2010, 21:36


Thanks! I kinda wondered if that might not be the case. I would have been surprised if Melyssa didn't know who Katy Perry was because they both tend to favor retro style glasses.

Crystal Veil

Honestly I had never heard of the group before. It was more of a guess on my part that if one wore glasses the other two maybe did as well. I am not too young not to remember Sandie Shaw. I think I have a record of hers. For the youngsters thats a round thing bigger than a CD with a big hole in the middle.

Crystal Veil 09 Aug 2010, 13:46

@ Soundmanpt, Val, 4 iiii,

Re your discussion about "Pussycat": as far as I remember, they were three sisters from Limburg, in the south of Holland, although a name ending with "stra" would indicate their family came from the north. And yes, their biggest hit was "Mississippi". I never met them in person, only saw them on TV. I am sure that none of the girls ever wore glasses on TV, not when performing, not during interviews.

Some great female singers from the 1960's and 1970's did wear glasses off stage and I remember seeing pictures of Sandie Shaw in glasses (a rectangular black frame and a John Lennon frame). I estimate her Rx was around minus five

Anya 09 Aug 2010, 09:55

Is that someone other than Betty that wore the plastic frames? If they are sisters I would not be surprised if all 3 needed correction, maybe contacts when preforming.

Val 02 Aug 2010, 13:43

I think it's very hard to find pictures of "Pussycat" showing any of the three sisters wearing glasses at the time they were famous (1975-1981). In concerts or at TV shows, none of the girls used to wear glasses.

But at least one of the guys from the did:

After 30 years, here's Betty wearing glasses in an interview:

Soundmanpt 02 Aug 2010, 08:41


On Google they show a "Best of Pussycat" CD. The picture of the band looks like something from the 70's or 80's. There is several young ladies in the band. The one in the center of the picture in blond and looks very attractive but not wearing glasses. Is this the group you are thinking of?

One of my latest models, Marleen, has recently switched to glasses almost identical to Lena's glasses. She is tired of the retro style that dominated all Dutch opticians stores for two decades and I think she is right!

I never post pictures of my models with their own glasses, but you can see Marleen in two dozen glasses from my collection at

Her style is catching on. I saw a girl in London on the tube with similar large frames (although not raybans and with a mild minus prescription) the other day and she looked perfect. On the right face big bold frames look fantastic - I hope the trend continues.

Thanks for the post. I'd say she's a plussie with maybe a little astigmatism. You can see this quite clearly from about 1.30 into the youtube video.

She's gorgeous!

Traveller 30 May 2010, 02:09

The lovely Lena Meyer-Landrut who last night secured Germany's first Eurovision Song Contest win since 1982 (nine years before she was born!) may not be A GWG but she is clearly a girl who likes her look in glasses as this interview clip and image show.

I don't think she has an RX but personally I think it is cool to see a young celebrity embracing glasses culture whether she actually needs them or not.

Aubrac 03 Apr 2010, 03:39

2 April 10.25

If you enlarge the images (click once, and then again)especially the one viewed from the side you get a good idea of the lenses.

They are similar to my wifes, and so I would guess at around +2 with some cylinder and quite possibly some prism. This shows up as vertical lines in the lens, to the right hand side for base out, and to the left side of the lens for base in, i.e. to correct inward or outward turning of the eyes.

At an extreme angle prism correction can give the impression of power rings even in plus correction lenses.

I would hazard a guess that Britney has a slight turn-in of her right eye needing about 3 degrees of base out prism.

 02 Apr 2010, 10:25

Britney also seems to wear some strong + glasses.

guest 02 Apr 2010, 10:01

Are Britney's glasses for vision or fashion? The Rx looks weak but if there's astigmatism they could be stronger.

Melyssa 05 Jan 2010, 11:48


Try They have some "clear glasses" in large styles, along with sunglasses, with which you can then do what I do -- change to clear, prescription lenses.

In the 1980s I bought a lot of frames from Diplomat, which is no longer around but maybe some frames could be out there. Among my newer glasses are some Kenmark frames, such as Judy (a black/white/crystal drop-temple frame) and Milan (a blue horn-rim pair).

Rita, try http:/ - there are thousands of frames for sale on here and numerous sellers offering either brand new vintage 70s/80s frames or second frames from this era with prescription lenses. One seller in particular who often offers such retro gems is "drhugo" - try typing his name into the advanced search options where it says "search by seller" or try searching for "80s eyeglasses", "70s eyeglasses", "large eyeglasses" etc.

Good luck and let us know if you find some!

Speximann 04 Jan 2010, 14:26

The great thing about the renewed interest in the larger plastic frames is now GWGs have the option of either the smaller style frames or ?and the larger frames seen on the younger stars. This may actually create MORE GWGs. Wish'in & a Hope'in.

You can always move to the east coast of the U.S., which is last in getting just about anything from eyewear to soda. I wear large frames not just to make a fashion statement or to be a nonconformist, but because I need them for a better frame fit and to be able to see better peripherally.

Pete (ehpc)

Just in case a lack of response to your provocative email is mistaken for agreement:

I sincerely hope these large frames DO NOT make a come-back.

1 Most wearers were not flattered by them and in some cases they looked plain silly.

2 IMHO many potential wearers were frightened off wearing glasses by the prevailing fashion for unflattering frames and resorted to contact lenses instead. Today, the options would include surgery as well.

It would probably lead to a significant reduction in GWG. I am therefore comforted by the belief that the glasses industry will not behave against their interests.

I have to confess that I do find Avril Lavigne quite fanciable. Not bothered by her music - I don't dislike it and I don't like it. I just turn the sound down on the tv if she comes on but I keep watching! I read somewhere that she has astigmatism in one eye and the other eye she has pretty much perfect vision. I don't know if she wears contacts when she's not wearing glasses but I would guess she does if she wore glasses full time at school.

Avril Lavigne really does wear glasses (contacts most of the time, I suspect), as her old school photos prove, so there's a good chance they are real.

our (I think) favourite GWG girl singer, Ingrid Michaelson has a new song release and its being heavily promoted on BBC radio next week apparently. She's touring in the UK and Europe during October and November.

Its true that her web site shows here sans glasses in some of the shots but there are plenty where the glasses still feature so I dont think there are any worries about the L word, even if she's becoming wealthy.

Her Myspace site shows 10.5M plays of her other single.

No, I've seen pictures of Nelly Furtado in glasses at least as far back as 2002. I also saw a childhood picture of her in Rolling Stone or some other magazine, and she's wearing glasses there too.

She's just a part-time contacts wearer, I'd wager.

Guest of a guest 06 Oct 2009, 14:54

Given the way we've seen Nelly Furtado squinting feverishly in some pics posted on the net, I guess it's safe to say these are her first glasses. WOW. She must have been walking around in a literal blur. Especially during her concerts!

Yoyo 04 Oct 2009, 11:37

I remember years ago seeing photos of Nelly Furtado wearing glasses in concert (a smaller frame than the pair she has now). I suspect that she just doesn't tolerate contacts well for long periods of time, so sometimes she has to go with the specs.

She seems comfortable with it, though, which is very cool.

Taylor Swift has a very mild prescription - likely around -1.50D from the pictures I saw on the links posted her a few months back. This is not "nearsighted as hell". And no, I didn't keep the links.

Yeah we know she is nearsighted as hell but catching her with actual glasses on is the real trick. None of the paparazzi have been able to yet apparently

TS Fan 17 Sep 2009, 06:32

After watching Taylor Swift at the MTV VMA Awards, I am even more convinced she is nearsighted as hell. She had this half-squint during most of the night, and I thought I read somewhere that she really does need glasses but doesn't wear them often. I think the glasses in her video were real though.

Female British rapper Speech Debelle sometimes wears glasses. I hadn't really heard much about her until she won the Mercury Music Prize on Wednesday. I'm not a big fan of rap so I was hoping that someone else was going to win. But at least she was a GWG and seems far less annoying than Dizee Rascal who was the last rapper to win the Mercury Prize.

Only 1 pic of her in glasses on her website but if you search for her in Google Images you will find more.

On her new album cover, video and front web page she is unfortunately bare-eyed. I think she epitomizes how much better many ladies look with their glasses on -- she is quite ordinary without, but very lovely with.

I've also noticed that one of the singers in the Swedish group Those Dancing Days wears similar specs.

I am going to Sweden in a couple of weeks - it'll be interesting to see if this trend is reflected acros the general population.

Diva spotted the 'context'. Tim and his supporter did not.

ehpc 04 May 2009, 09:48

If 'your saying he is wearing full time now' is the subject (which grammatically it could be) that would express the idea that Marie was getting excited about the fact that Julian passed on this information, not the fact that Marie finds Justin Timberlake (whoever he is) exciting wearing glasses. If, as in the context of this forum one might reasonably expect, Marie is excited by the fact that the chap wears glasses, rather than being excited by the fact the Julian told her the chap wears glasses, then the grammar would definitely need to be 'you're'. Marie's initial 'apology' and Diva's post are correct.

Tim 02 May 2009, 19:36

Thank you, Filthy. My point exactly!

Guest 30 Apr 2009, 13:59

Singer Justin Timberlake has confirmed that he wears glasses because he needs them, not because they are a fashion statement.

He told television host Jimmy Kimmel that he is short sighted and needs to wear his glasses, reported Javno.

Any bets as to his Rx?

Mr Timberlake had been spotted wearing glasses last week and confirmed that it was not because he was trying to be fashionable.

He told Mr Kimmel he had "embraced" his poor vision and "made a commitment with these glasses", adding, "I`m good."

Demonstrating his restricted vision, the singer told the host that while he could see him, he could not see the audience.

Filthy McNasty 30 Apr 2009, 07:32

Ah, the arch cattiness of the grammar police.

One can correctly say "Your saying he is a full time wearer is cool." It is equivalent to saying, "The fact that you say he is a full time wearer is cool." The subject of the sentence is the phrase, "Your saying he is a full time wearer."

If you seek to police others, you'd better be right.

diva 30 Apr 2009, 04:27

You're incorrect, Tim.

'Your' is a possessive. 'You're' is an abbreviation for 'you are'.

These are two very different things, and 'your' is NOT appropriate in the context of the post.

I hope you don't work in any industry that requires a great amount of written reporting (or that you employ an excellent proofreader if you do).


Tim 29 Apr 2009, 20:04

All 4 eyes - if you *really* knew English you would have known that in that context "your" is just as appropriate as "you're".

Sorry, but I had to put in my pennyworth on that one!

Julian: Oh, that's wonderful news about Justin Timberlake! I saw a little snippet of him on one of those entertainment news shows where he was wearing glasses, but figured it was probably a rare occassion, since I'd never seen him in specs before, but your saying he's wearing full time now, too cool.

Julian 28 Apr 2009, 17:41

All4Eyes and Jen,

There is another great concert video of Roy Orbison called "A Black and White Night". It was obviously filmed in only those colors.

If you get Sundance Channel, it often airs a couple of documentaries concerning the Traveling Wilburys. There is some great stuff about Roy. Unfortunately, he suffered his heart attack and passed away during that time.

Also, Elvis Costello has a weekly show on Sundance that you might enjoy.

All4Eyes 31 Mar 2009, 16:02

Jen: I should add that I first fell in love with Roy watching that very video you mentioned. Up till then I'd heard "Pretty Woman" on the radio, of course, but I didn't really know who he was and I'd never seen him. I was really taken in by his hyper halos, they had this hypnotic effect on me I'd only felt from power rings before (but power rings and minus lenses are still my favorite overall).

I ALWAYS make passes at guys who wear glasses (especially if they can sing!), Marie 8-)

All4Eyes 31 Mar 2009, 15:45

Jennifer: I LOVE Roy Orbison and have spent many an hour gazing upon his glasses. My best guess as to rx would have to be somewhere in the +8 area.

Maybe "Scriptfinder" (who's been posting on the Actors thread) can do some research for us and tell us what Britney's rx is. Britney's little sister, Jamie Lynn, has been seen wearing her glasses a lot while she was pregnant. I wonder if contacts were uncomfortable for her to wear during her pregnancy.

SimonC 23 Jul 2008, 07:06

I have some pics of Britney in Specs. Quite strange as in one pair there is noticeable cut in and some bits behind the lenses minifide. Then another few pics showing definite plus lenses. I will try to post them somewhere.

Aubrac 23 Jul 2008, 02:05


Judging from one of the pics shot looking her left hand side, I would say the lenses are about +1.50 to +2.00.

They also show some cutout in one of the pics, my wife has this scrip and her lenses look exactly the same viewed from the side.

Anyone have other good lens pics of Britney or info on her scrip?

Dieter 22 Jul 2008, 07:56


I've always been able to spot hard lenses pretty easily. Since soft lenses are larger, cover the entire iris, and seem to be self centering, they are much more difficult to notice. I'm certain that vitually all professional photographers would ask to have contacts removed for a close up photo for magazines, books, CD covers and such. They are way too concerned about "blemishes" and often "air brush" the photos for perfection.

Guest555 22 Jul 2008, 06:54

Has any of you guys ever watched Celine Dion's music video for the 93 song "The power of love"? You'll get a pretty long and clear view at her RGP lenses floating in her eyes... I wonder when she had LASIK...

VFL 22 Jul 2008, 06:05

Do photographers who are taking photos for album covers...and even cinemaphotographers ever ask actors to remove their contact lenses because they are too noticeable in the "shot?"

I can see my own rgp lenses in some close up photos. When I wore the soft lenses I never saw that. I guess I don't care. But people really can see your lenses, can't they?

Dieter 21 Jul 2008, 06:06

Looking at a copy of the Ingrid Michaelson CD in Target this weekend, I noticed the photo on the back shows a half face close-up. At first, I was disappointed that she wasn't wearing glasses until I noticed a very obvious RPG contact resting on the pretty brown iris of her eye. Whoa. Even when she's not seen in glasses, she's making a statement.

The degree of cut-in suggests at least -8.00 and maybe more. She is confident and totally at ease with her glasses and they are a part of her. As a result, many of us would consider her, optically speaking, close to the 'ideal woman' !

She really does look good in specs. Anyone hazard a guess at her rx? I thought she was presbyopic but she appeared to wear her glasses comfortably while interviewing guests at a distance. On the other hand she dispensed with them for part of the programme. I used to think she was arrogant but she came over as rather nice yesterday. And she is one incredible gwg!

I don't know how many of you are country music fans like me, but the other day I was listening to Kenny Chesney's Greatest Hits and when "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" came on, a light bulb appeared over my bespectacled head and I thought if I tinkered with the lyrics a bit I could turn it into a song about, well, something even sexier than a tractor. Then after I wrote it I realized this song is about me-I am SO that girl staring at the nearsighted guy in thick spex and drooling over every little detail of his visual experience! And so, without further ado, here is "She Thinks My Spex Are Sexy" (it's highly recommended that you listen to the original as you read this, next best thing to actually hearing someone sing my version (there wouldn't happen to be anyone here who'd like to try it and put it on the Net somewhere, would there?) ):

Sliding down my nose in the hot summer sun

my thick, heavy spex, lordy here she comes

staring at my plastic frames and the lenses I need to see

I tilt my head a bit and the white rings gleam

push 'em up my nose and the girl just beams

Just look at her face, she ain't a-foolin' me

She thinks my spex are sexy

they really turn her on

She's always staring at me

while I've got glasses on

She likes the way they shine just like a coin fresh from the mint

she's even kinda crazy 'bout my bare-eyed squint

She's the only one who really understands what gets me

she thinks my spex are sexy

She likes for me to tell her all about my sight

how I can't read the signs or see well at night

everything's a fog, I need a guide dog if my spex aren't on

She says she's got a dream and I ask what it is

She wants a little house full of myopic kids

and one more teeny-weeny squint before I take her home

She thinks my spex are sexy

they really turn her on

She's always staring at me

while I've got glasses on

She likes the way they shine just like a coin fresh from the mint

she's even kinda crazy 'bout my bare-eyed squint

She's the only one who really understands what gets me

she thinks my spex are sexy

Well, she ain't into legs or a cute, tight butt

but if your eyes are bad, man her eyes light up

She thinks my spex are

She thinks my spex are sexy

they really turn her on

She's always staring at me

while I've got glasses on

She likes the way they shine just like a coin fresh from the mint

she's even kinda crazy 'bout my bare-eyed squint

She's the only one who really understands what gets me

she thinks my spex are sexy

she thinks my spex are sexy

Tod, I had no reason to think that Becki's glasses weren't real so I didn't really study the thickness, just the overall look. But from what I could tell they were real prescription, though not terribly strong, -3?

Tod 04 Jun 2007, 21:27

Kisal, glad you got to see the Pipettes in person and up close. BTW how strong would you guess Riot Becki's glasses are? I know she is nearsighted. I have heard she is now wearing plano glasses over contact lenses. Did her glasses have a Rx in them?

kisal 04 Jun 2007, 08:05

I just had the wonderful opportunity to see The Pipettes in concert in Washington, DC. It was sublime! RiotBecki is so amazingly, absolutely, sexily gorgeous in her short shorts, tight polka-dot blouse and black-rimmed specs. It was a small club so I was able to get really close. The sound was great and the dancing was great and the best thing was that since she was on stage in front of us, I could stare and stare at her to my heart's content. It's never possible to stare so long at a stranger or even someone you know without embarassment, and in a movie they keep cutting away from the GWG. But in a concert I could keep my eyes glued to RiotBecki, who is just as beautiful in real life as in her pictures. (And the other girls are great to look at too, although not in glasses.)

If any of you live in England or California or Japan or Finland or any of the other places they will be touring this summer, you should certainly check them out:

What do you guys make of this video and picture? He's been asked before about his glasses and he says he's blind as a bat without them. What do you guys think? Is he as blind as he says? And the picture was the best I could do, he's a little shy, I think.

Lisa Loeb, Annette Strean, "Riot Becki"

Do I have your attention yet?

Well here's another to add to the list: Theresa Sokyrka (pronounced So-Keer-Ka). Someone put her video on another EyeScene page and I know that I have fallen in love with her! She was a runner-up on the Canadian Idol program a few years ago and has released two albums. She is in specs in every picture and nearly every video. I haven't found any good, large high resolution images yet but I'm sure they are out there. I think she has a new official page:

and they don't yet have the pictures up.

Her myspace page is great:

Her songs are very good (country-rock that is not really my style, but I'm willing to overlook that). But definitely check out the video on that page. She wears fantastic glasses in most of it. Its kind of sad that in the fantasy section she doesn't wear glasses, but that's allright.

There are also many videos on YouTube including her Idol performances:

The thing that always bugs me about this "spectacle wearer of the year award" is that the winner is ALWAYS someone who has only been seen in spex once or twice, if that at all.

I've only ever seen this Liz girl wearing spex on the TV show "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here" and as for the other girl, I've never seen her wearing glasses.

Several years in a row the winner of this award has come out of 0-0 woodwork wearing would appear to be planos.

I don't know where they find their winners from as I remember voting for this earlier in the year and gave my nominations for women that actually wore glasses, like Kate Silverton

I just remembered an article about Robert Smith of the Cure that I read ages ago - found a copy of it:

"Ross, when he first met me, was surprised at how unaware I am of the world around me. And on a very practical level, it's because I'm short-sighted. I don't wear glasses because I've found it's a very good defence mechanism. If I'm in public, I don't know if people are looking at me. But I can't actually see very well, I'm out of focus beyond my arm. And he thought I'd taken it too far, that I wasn't noticing the leaves on the trees. So I've started wearing glasses a lot more since I met him." There's a pause. He must think I look worried, because he adds hastily, "I always wore glasses to drive." It's a bit like Martin Amis, spending 25 years not smiling because he didn't want people to see his teeth; it sounds like a trivial, physical point, but you do wonder what it does to a person, to live the bulk of his adult life not seeing properly, just to evade the necessity of having to confront attention. It's another signal of his flexibility, as well, that he could adopt that modus operandi for so long, yet allow someone to call him on it, and then think, OK, maybe you're right, I'll change it.,11710,1236945,00.html#article_continue

This is a link to a "News" article on the Channel 4 Big Brother website. As this series only started on Wednesday evening there isn't many photos on the website yet. But keep checking during the series as more photos will be added, although there is no guarantee that Jo will be wearing glasses in the photos as that depends how often and for how long she wears her glasses during her stay in the house. Hopefully she won't get voted out too soon!

I always thought Jo was the sexiest one in S Club 7 and had the best voice (Rachel Stevens came a close second with her looks but didn't have such a good voice.)

I just saw a music video for The Pink Spider's "Little Razorblade" which features a blonde girl wearing glasses. I'm sure there planos, but who cares...She looks GREAT!!! Here's a link:

Does anyone know of any other good music videos to look for featuring a girl wearing glasses? Thanks

I've always wanted to see Faye Wong in glasses. I remember watching her in "Chungking Express" and thinking that contacts were clearly visible in the close-ups . . . that usually means a fairly strong prescription!

Guest : re downloading youtube files.

I expect that there are many ways of downloading such files but all I suspect involve a bit of work.

Here is a method I came across on another forum I visit:

"You can actually download and save the videos on

It’s a little work, but not too bad. You can also burn them to DVD after you save them.

First download and install RIVA FLV Encoder 2.0 at this link

When you find a video on youtube you want to save, copy the URL for the video to the right of the video on the web page. Open a browser and go to the following link . At the top of the page there is a place to paste the URL and you have to pick youtube as the site then start the download. The full instructions are on the web page. You have to save the with a FLV ext.

Then you can play the file in the RIVA player or convert it to a mpg using the RIVA flv encoder".

Don't think she's minus 6, perhaps -3... The glasses are just huge, giving the impression that the lenses are very strong.

While I am not a Country Music fan, I am Canadian and do see enough pictures of him. I haven't seen any with him wearing glasses. Sorry!

All4Eyes 30 Jun 2006, 12:14

Does anyone know if Canadian country singer Aaron Lines ever wears/needs glasses? I’ve never seen him wearing any, but it seems to me in most of his pics (go to to see) and TV appearances he has a serious power squint going. He’s absolutely gorgeous and I’m madly in something with him (love seems a bit strong considering he doesn’t even know me, but I think about him constantly and I feel all funny when I do-like I get butterflies in my stomach and then they decide to fly south!) anyway, but to see him in a nice pair of minus glasses (and preferably nothing else, but I’m trying not to get overheated here!)-WOAH! The very idea gives me hot flashes! *Sigh* BTW, I wrote a poem about him, nothing to do with glasses, except of course I suspect he needs them, but I think it’s pretty good and hot anyway and I’d love to share if ya’ll care to see it (thought I’d ask first, though, because I know sometimes off-topic posts are a nuisance, although I think some of our tangents are rather interesting, the people in this group are so wonderfully intelligent, witty and diverse in viewpoints). OK, now please excuse me while I go take a cold shower. ;)

Nicola from Girls Aloud 3rd posting down - quite a few pictures of her wearing glasses.

Is it common to suddenly need glasses as strong as hers? - they look stronger than +1.50 and she is obviously supposed to wear them most if not all the time. Her right eye seems more magnified than the left.

girls aloud off the record is on again tonight at 10.30 on e4, hopefully nicola will be wearing her lovely glasses again especially now she's got real ones aswell, its great she actually has a proper prescription and wears glasses rather than wearing contacts or going for laser/lasik surgery. also maybe there'll be more cheryl tweedy wearing glasses. both look really great in specs and can't wait till tonights show

00 08 May 2006, 12:35

I wish i had seen that show. Gutted.

Guest 08 May 2006, 02:41

Re Nicola from Girls Aloud, those photos were from the Paul O'Grady Show in UK. She walked on wearing them & he complimented her, then when they had all sat down, he raised the subject again asking her about her glasses & how it was nice that she wasnt wearing contacts like most other celeb singers. She replied that she had only just had then & didnt want contacts in case she had to rely on them. I would say they are around +1.50 and she seems to wear them more now than not.

On a different sighting, check out one of the singers from all girl band The Pipettes. They are from Brighton (UK) and she is hot - never seen photo or video where she isnt wearing glasses - check out their video on their official website

gwgs 08 May 2006, 00:53

What fantastic glasses, arguably the most stylish and attractive type of frames.

I wish they'd make a proper comeback in 80's styles.

Great find. I have been looking for pictures of her since she appeared in the sun last week. She was wearing a secatary outfit with some small wire framed glasses, which has to be said did not compliment her at all. And of course, the sun did not give her a great writeup. But these glasses really look great on her.

ashymae 02 May 2006, 15:22

hi im a newish poster - been visiting a while but never posted haha! Anyway, here's some pics of Nicola from Girls Aloud (UK girl band) wearin glasses. Apparently they're 'real' but I dunno her perscription?

Adam 02 May 2006, 11:21

Anybody seen the young black guitarist who plays sometimes with "Simply Red"? He wears brown frames with very strong lenses which, when I saw him, had lots of power rings and a huge amount of reflection - a real spexy guy. I can't find any pics tho' - could others look as well, pleae.

Kisal 02 May 2006, 06:09

Dave, those Norah Jones pics you found are great! I knew she wore glasses offstage and in interviews, but I always thought she took them off to perform. Now I know differently and will try harder to catch Norah in concert next time she is in town.

Bohsephia 02 May 2006, 01:22

on an (cringe) American Idol episode ( US march 8th , i think about 14 people left and boys were performing) Randy jackson was wearing semi-rimless, Black, thick temple/arms kind of cats eye effect above temple. personally i think they were slightly flamboyant for him but i would love to know what brand and what their called ect. if anybody knows...or cares...

Lesley Garrett is indeed an insufferable woman. But I love those specs. And she is rather attractive if she keeps her mouth shut. I wonder why she's taken up as a gwg at 50. Maybe there was some latent hyperopia there which surfaced as she became presbyopic. Quite nice for the middle aged among us how our female contemporaries pile into specs in their 40s and 50. I was always a "minus" man myself! But I must confess that reading specs, and plus lenses generally, are growing on me with age!!

ehpc 01 Apr 2006, 10:11

echp, why do you talk about yourself in the third person?

Oscar 31 Mar 2006, 17:33

Lentifan – you put it very well, I think! I find her very irritating indeed on the TV.

I've heard her sing quite a lot in the past (at English National Opera, where she was a decent company soloist for quite a while before "stardom" overcame her), including some big roles, notably Strauss's "Salome". She went off the boil rather after that, and moved into recording discs of predictable operatic favourites and not doing much else.

lentifan 31 Mar 2006, 15:03

Completely off topic, but apropos Ms Garrett:

I do not comment on her singing ability and she may be saintly in her private life, but, based on her media persona she is a pain in the arse. Or am I the only one allergic to her relentless jokiness and self-regard?

ehpc 31 Mar 2006, 14:59

Actually I have never heard her sing. Pete

Hansel 31 Mar 2006, 07:30

"Ms Garrett has the range of a soprano." said Hansel, (not one of Ms Garrett's fans!) ;-)

Profile -

Maverick 30 Mar 2006, 05:04

Phil : Lesley Garrett appears to have gone full time.She wore them all the time on 'Countdown' the other week, where in the past she has only used them to read.

I just this minute flicked the TV over to 'Loose Women' (a prog I hasten to add I usually avoid like the plague!)where she is a regular and, yes, she was on and wearing her red framed glasses.

She is long sighted not myopic, by the way.

Phil 30 Mar 2006, 00:02

Saw photo of Lesley Garrett in Hello wearing an outrageously lovely pair of red square-framed specs. I didn't know she was a gwg! She's same age as me so it could be presbyopia. But if she's fulltime it's more likely to be hyperopia or even previously uncorrected myopia? Anyone know? Whatever the lenses she looked yummy. Odd how so many people take up specs for myopia around age of presbyopia. Maybe they get sorted by optician for first time when problems become more complex than just a bit of blur in the distance.

Is that Lisa Loeb show going to be rerun anytime soon? What is its name? I think it was on E!

gwgs 25 Mar 2006, 02:47

Name is B - a few years ago Lisa (Loeb) said in an interview that she was -5.75. Given that was in 2002, I would think if her prescription has increased now that she would be above -6, could be even -7!!

Curt 23 Mar 2006, 13:19

Wally: There were a few fakes going around a few years ago - I have copies of them on my computer at home. They were not even very good fakes at that. I have not seen any real pictures of her with specs, however.

name is B but call me T 23 Mar 2006, 11:56

Saw Lisa Lobe on that TV dating show, whatever. she took off her glasses to try on her dates glasses. His were a low minus -1 or -2. she said she could not see with his glasses on. She gave them back and was trying to see without any glasses on and she said she's "nearly blind without her glasses". Then she put her own glasses back on. I then noticed there is a lot of "cut in" in her lenses. Her glasses seem to be (minus) -6 at least.

Wally 23 Mar 2006, 09:45

small amounts of astigmatism and dissimilarities between eyes can be very problematic for some people, especially if they have any other issues going on like any phorias, or even a tendency to migrains or headaches or even just stress in general.

If someone gets glasses that don't help anything, then they will eventually get rid of them. But no harm in trying if you have something you are trying to fix. And then there are just people who maybe just like glasses, or want the added protection of having lenses in front of their eyes. If nothing else, they help with UV protection!

Beyonce Fantasy 17 Nov 2005, 14:51

I read in an interview awhile back that Beyonce has a thing for glasses and has always wanted to wear glasses. That always stuck with me as quite erotic. Does anyone know if she ever started wearing glasses? Any pictures?

gwgs 11 Nov 2005, 00:58

Great find, nice to see she dressed up for the ocassion!

Britney has finally gone back to specs! its about time!

Maybe she could starting doing a bit of GOC if she gets bored with her planos :) (very big grin in anticipation!)

I heard from g/f a while ago that someone told her she needed to ditch the spex in order to "break" the States.

God knows who gave her this stupid comment as you just have to name Lisa Loeb who is a fantastic spex wearer to know this comment isn't true.

She obviously took it on board though :(

Lazysiow 30 Oct 2005, 12:56

it's a pity, I don't think she's half as pretty without them.

Anyone know a source for her full Sick and Tired video, thats the only time I've ever seen her where regular glasses and not disguised as shades. Se looks quite good too. I wanted to deck the guy beating on her.

guest 30 Oct 2005, 00:45

Went to the anastacia website and saw photos of her w/o glasses(gasp! horror)

Guess she really might have eye surgery!!

 28 Oct 2005, 09:30

Does anione know if Lindsay lohan wears glasses?????

AtropinLover 24 Oct 2005, 06:02

Oh nooo! Sure Anastacia had lasik surgery? ...hope this isn´t true, ohnoo! :(

gwgs 24 Oct 2005, 03:06

Read an article with Anastacia yesterday, there were several references in it to her glasses.

One of them said she needed glasses badly as her eyesight was "extremely bad", one of other quoted mentioned "her thick lenses often protuded outside of her frames as she couldn't see without her stylish collection of glasses."

One thing disappointed me though; towards the end of the article the journalist mentions she had laser eye surgery and asks Anastacia about it. She responds "it's great, now i can see everything really clearly but i still like to wear glasses occasionly".

What a girl!

On the contrary, it's you people who have a problem, walking around in your cheap wire or plastic frames.

Thank God for West Hollywood and the Hamptons, where my customers know the value of a lavishly-tooled wooden frame and aren't prepared to disfigure their faces with Lenscrafter's semi-rimless or whatever the latest fashion is in Hoboken or Des Moines.

Hansel 12 Oct 2005, 13:37

"Well, if you guys are such losers that you can't afford to spend $900 on something as important as glasses frames, that's not my problem"

If the majority of people on the board, who are interested in all aspects of optics, including frame styles, would appear not to think that these frames represent value for money, surely as the manufacturer, you do have a problem.

to burger box.

how could you compare individually hand carved wooden frames to McGlasses? Dont you think all the brands you buy in the glasses stores are a bit more McHanized? All the same, made over in millions of the same fabrication, then stamped with a label so suckers will lust after them. Sounds a bit more burger than frames which are considered as art by a few galleries. Just my thoughts though.

Good Day.

Hey y'all. Check out this lovely singer/songwriter from the Pacific Northwest (USA) -- Laura Veirs: She's a full-time GWG with a great voice and sound. She sounds like Suzanne Vega and looks like Lisa Loeb. The pics and videos on the site are a bit disappointing: small and grainy, but the video for "Galaxies" is pretty nice. I first heard about her because she is the daughter of one of my old college physics professors.

There's also a great picture of her at

Do you wear glasses? Phil, London

I used to when I was younger, but now I've stopped. I fancied a pair of glasses when I was younger so I said: "I can't see the A!" And they gave me really strong glasses, but after six months I was getting chronic headaches.

There is a German pop-star called Jeanette Beidermann (often described as a German Brittney Spears!) who is auctioning 6 pairs of glasses for charity on eBay. The price has gone quite high on most of them, but each is accompanied by a hand written note from her about the frames, a note of her exact prescription and a picture of her wearing them. Well worth a look.

gwgs 06 Jun 2005, 00:55


"C. Britney has poor eyesight. Our early ancestors relied on keen eyesight to avoid predators and locate food. Weak visual acuity doomed individuals to early death or reliance on the kindness of others. Britney Spears requires corrective lenses to improve her eyesight. Eyeglasses detract from her overall appearance and indicate that her descendants will most likely stumble about half-blind as they attempt to avoid hungry lions and vicious, man-eating elephants in the forest primeval!"

The bit that is the funniest is where it says "Eyeglasses detract from her appearance"

Err, no they don't!!! They significantly add to it.

Geez Lousie 05 Jun 2005, 15:03

I never much liked Ms Spears before, but now I think I might have a bit nicer feeling for her!

tim 05 Jun 2005, 14:49

the person who wrote this must be mad!! it lists the reasons why people should hate britney spears with one of his points being that she has bad eyesight

anyone guess at her rx? not seen her wear her specs for a while now. contacts all the time maybe? or just tolerating the blur?

Julian 09 May 2005, 02:28

Yes, I'd have thought John Lennon's Rx was a lot more than -2. In his introduction to 'John Lennon in his own write' Paul McCartney wrote about their early acquaintance and said something like:

Was he deep? He wore glasses so it was possible, and without them there was no holding him. "What bus?" he would say, to roars of delighted laughter.

justme 08 May 2005, 23:40

Lennon described himself as 'blind' without his glasses- he wore them from quite a small child( he and his ex wife Cynthia had similarly poor eyesight- it's how they got together in college, everyone testing how far they could see.He also wore hard contacts for some time before 'outing' himself in public. Though I don't know I would say his prescription was considerably higher than -2, there are lots of pics out there through the years, both his sons are also shortsighted.

LG 08 May 2005, 18:04

Contacts in the 60's were known as "hard lenses" and were about $400 per pair. They were very uncomfortable. My sister, who is about -7, got them in 64. PITA !! As they did not flex, any tiny grain of anything resulted in a scratched cornea. Most people, like Lennon, would probably prefer to go bare eyed at -2. As his focus was his music, most of his activities would be occurring within 2 feet of his face. (Trust me, on stage, you don't see anything beyond the front of the stage anyway!) Another factor is the progressive nature of most myopia. It could very well be that he did not develop that Rx until he was in his 20's.

Tim 08 May 2005, 16:08

Do any of you have any idea what John Lennon's prescription might have been? I'd guess -2 but I'm not sure if I can tell from his glasses. Old glasses tend to look thick even if they are not strong. But more interesting would be to know if he used contact lenses before going public with his glasses? I really have no idea how common contact lenses where back in the sixties. Maybe it was more normal to go around in a haze if you weren't very nearsighted (and Lennon probably wasn't).

Edward 07 May 2005, 12:54

Guest 04 May 2005, 11:49

Do a Google image search for Amy X Neuburg. You might like what you see.

SLB 22 Apr 2005, 14:42

Its the same effect with cameras - for a given focus the smaller the aperture the greater the depth of field about that focus point - squinting is effectivly just reducing the aperture.

daffy 21 Apr 2005, 17:51

gwgs - i discovered that too. That's how pin-hole glasses work. I remember a little about the physics of why it works, but don't have time (if you're wondering).

gwgs 21 Apr 2005, 08:51

Guest - here's a quote i took off a Lisa Loeb site years ago, as you are aware, most spec wearers prescription increases over time so she is more than likely to be - as you say - nearer -6 or even higher now :)


So, what's the prescription on those bad boys? Are we talking legally blind? Would you know a loved one past 5 feet?

Does squinting really help myopics or is it just an endearing way to tell us sighted people you have no idea what we're

showing you?


Squinting does help to a certain extent. Also, making a tiny triangle- 1mm x 1mm with your fingers and looking

through it also helps (seriously). My prescription is -4.75 +0.50 x 8 in my right eye, and -5.75 + 0.50 x 24 in my left..

Guest 21 Apr 2005, 08:47

That same site also has pictures of Lisa Loeb. Any guesses as to her Rx? I think about -6. I've heard that her hunky boyfriend Dweezil Zappa also wears glasses. Has anyone ever seen him in glasses? If so, what is his Rx?

gwgs 21 Apr 2005, 07:56

Yep, they all wear spex, and are hot!

We haven't seen her in spex for a while, and sometimes during pregnancy womens eyesight gets worse.

Lets see her in -8's


jamie 13 Apr 2005, 09:48

britney spears is pregnant!!! we know she wears glasses and hopefully as her pregnancy progresses she won't be able to tolerate contact lenses any more as many women can't during pregnancy and will switch to glasses full time!! this is assuming that she wears contacts and isn't just an occasional glasses wearer. we can only hope!!

Sure, Shannon is cute, but as a guy that prefers guys in glasses, I find bearded Yann, cuter. His glasses are also stronger that any of the McDade family members.

I clicked to enlarge some of those Montreal pictures and was happy to see Jeremiah McDade's contacts. I then clicked around the rest of the site in search of pictures of him in glasses. Unfortunately, like his brother and sister, he too, wears a very weak prescription.

Ted.Quite attractive.

Curt 22 Feb 2005, 05:41

Ted: I think you are correct --- it was Toby Lightman. It says on her web page that she would be performing "Rocky Mountain High" in the pregame. It is strange that her web page contains no photos of her with glasses, however. I wonder if she lost/ruined a contact lens and had to wear glasses instead. They look like a fairly strong + prescription. Hopefully, we will see more of her...

Dave 21 Feb 2005, 13:18

Their eyesight is bad, sure, but that would still leave them the choice between glasses and contacts. And I guess that in many areas of "showbiz" particularly women are still supposed not to wear glasses. So if they do, this could be interpreted as a sign (the unexpected/unusual creates meaning, semiotically speaking). I assume (or fear) that in many cases it is just a marketing strategy, marketing meaning, among other things, to create differences to comparable "products" (probably, this is true of people such as Anastacia, whose musical style IMHO is pretty mainstream and thus similar to many others, it might not be true of Eddi Reader or Catie Curtis). I do not really believe that Solo have not thought about this (there is at least this one photo of Susanne without glasses). Well, probably they have come to the conclusion that they want to present themselves "just the way they really are" (the quotation marks are supposed to indicate that I doubt the concept), because authenticity is a major theme in their self-presentation (their bios, their lyrics, their music).

Tulip 12 Feb 2005, 02:12


Good job. The SOLO-girl is very, very attractive. Her frame fits very will and it's a good combination with the head shape and her beautiful hair.

They are real Rx glasses, no doubt about it. No one wears glasses with that kind of strength unless they're OO or need them. Or both.

 11 Feb 2005, 17:47

I have to agree with Julian on this one. A simple click to enlarge any picture and it's obvious that Erich has some plus power in his glasses and Susanne has some minus power in hers.

Julian 11 Feb 2005, 17:11

You don't think it's just that they both need glasses?

Chloe 11 Feb 2005, 06:42

Interesting couple-qua-musical-duo, oxymoronly called "Solo", both wearing glasses.

I guess the glasses are part of a strategy, creating the image of "the ordinary" for the project (not in a negative sense, but rather in the sense of the "couple next door"). And also to have a cohesive link between the two.

Does anybody know what posh spices's PX is? She doesnt seem to wear them all the time - may she wear contacts? Also any ideas about Scary? I heard she had her eyes lasered. Any ideas what her RX was?

Curt 08 Feb 2005, 13:56

anime fan: I think you mean Ashlee Simpson, not Ashlee Allen!!

Alan 08 Feb 2005, 13:17

Emma's glasses in that pic are not real, she said in an interview she did not need glasses!

anime fan 07 Feb 2005, 16:29

While I don't consider Ashley Allen a singer, there was this about her laser surgery

Eric 07 Feb 2005, 15:43

Wow... Matt Tong's glasses really pack a punch!!!!!!!!!!!! That boy is blind as a bat :)

gwgs 07 Feb 2005, 09:41

Anon, they all wear glasses :)

Baby has been seen wearing oval silver rimmed spex before.

Have a look at this collage i made as well as one of the photos of Emma i have;

David 06 Feb 2005, 11:58

I was just checking out Matt Tong - he really is magnificently myopic! Talk about power rings! And really savage cut-in... mmmmm.

Ted 04 Feb 2005, 13:48

Anastacia and others

anon 04 Feb 2005, 12:06

Kylie certainly looks hyperopic judging by her glasses.

Did all the Spice Girls wear glasses? And were they all short sighted? You can see from the Posh Spice photo that she is short sighted and I know that Sporty (Mel C) & Scary (Mel B) Spices are/were short sighted and I think Ginger(Geri) is also short sighted as I've seen her put glasses on to see something clearly in the distance. The only Spice Girl I haven't seen with real glasses is Baby (Emma).

Brian-16 04 Feb 2005, 10:53

Matt Tong Fan -Yes he is very nearsighted up around my rx I guess and cute!

canpaixano 04 Feb 2005, 05:40

is kylie hyperopic? to me it seems like it. anybody knows her prescription?

funny, there are a few really pretty actresses wearing glasses because they're hyperopic, like Demi Moore, Kate Beckinsale and Daryl Hannah. Well, personally I like it!


Matt Tong fan 04 Feb 2005, 04:19

I reckon Matt's in the low double digits - minus 11 or 12. He must be the most short-sighted rock musician around: he couldn't see his drums without his specs. Very cute.

gwgs 03 Feb 2005, 09:24

Hi Karen,

I was going to say that photo has been around for years, but that would be stating the obvious!!

I've always thought those glasses were planos as they're slightly "oversized". Other photos of her with glasses clearly have a prescription but i didn't think these were prescription.

bloc party 03 Feb 2005, 01:54

the seriously shortsighted drummer matt tong: any guesses to his rx?

Karen X 01 Feb 2005, 14:08

I have seen an old photo of Kylie wearing glasses. The photo was taken around 1993/4 and she is wearing glasses that were quite fashionable at the time - largeish metal frames. They seem very big compared to her current frames - small delicate ovals in wire.

It's difficult to work out the strength of the lenses as she is facing the person who took the photo and you can't see the sides of her face through the lenses to work out the magnification. Her eyes do look big but this may be my imagination. They are probably weaker than her current glasses but strong enough for her to wear them (probably) instead of contacts. I didn't know she had been wearing glasses for so many years.

If you want to see the picture go to (you will have to register as it's a username + password site). When you have registered go to Kylie Picture Post and click on the topic subject "Glasses" (I actually started the thread to request photos of Kylie in her glasses). There are some nice pics of Kylie in her prescription glasses but also several of her in sunglasses. The old photo is near the bottom of page 2.

Filthy McNasty 30 Jan 2005, 13:09

At least nominally a musician, uber-babe Melanie Blatt of All Saints uses a set of thick frames to good effect in this picture:

I saw Jenifer Lopez's new video clip to her new song (think its called "Get Right" - or something like that - correct me if i'm wrong). She plays a few charaters on the video clip. One of them she has a bob-cut hair-do and wearing glasses. They are plano, but still, quite nice to see.

Is Matt into double digits? Looks like that to me.

Julian 09 Jan 2005, 11:36 you say Matt's myopia is spectacular, but you didn't mention that he's one of three spexy guys in the band...though whether the others perform in glasses is another question. Nice.

Love and kisses, Jules.

Myopeman 09 Jan 2005, 10:27

There's a British band called blocparty, with an amazingly myopic drummer.

click on Band, then picture gallery, then scroll down to "Matt off duty" and click on that. Minus heaven.

Myopeman 09 Jan 2005, 10:12

I've seen quite a few pics of Will Young taken from that photoshoot - there's no doubt that he's wearing a very mild minus Rx; you can even see a couple of power rings in places. Driving glasses, basically.

Katy 09 Jan 2005, 06:21

Ok have found one :

Found a couple of other pics while I was at it.. can't resist :-) Any guesses as to rx?

Katy 09 Jan 2005, 05:46

Julian - I have a poster of the gorgeous LTJ Bukem with frames just like those, but in black plastic. They look great on him.. will try & find a link :-)

Julian 08 Jan 2005, 23:35


Julian 08 Jan 2005, 22:48

With that background it's difficult to tell about the Rx, but the second pic shows some distortion - low minus? cylinder? The frames are certainly curious; never seen that sort before but I suppose somebody was bound to dream up that design eventually.

Love and kisses, Jules.

VisitBoy 08 Jan 2005, 05:04

I've looked a bit more, and found these, but I'm sure there isn't a prescription there. Not my kinda frame either. :(

VisitBoy 08 Jan 2005, 04:41

Does anyone have any photos of Will Young wearing glasses? This link suggests that he has worn them, but I can't get the pics.

 30 Dec 2004, 09:52

does anione have any pics of britney

eric 21 Dec 2004, 14:56

I'd say -6 or -7, which still means one hell of a blur when you wake up in the morning. I wouldn't mind waking up next to Clay and watch him fumble for his specs :)

Eclipse 21 Dec 2004, 14:49

I'm sure other people here are far better at guessing than me but I'll guess -8 based on there being far more than my -4 lens manages.

eric 21 Dec 2004, 07:05

Wow, great pic. I wonder how close Clay would have to hold those books if he tried to read them without his specs? Any guesses as to his Rx?

Eclipse 21 Dec 2004, 06:44

Some serious cut-in in this picture of Clay Aiken:

eric 21 Dec 2004, 06:41

I don't think Elton induced his myopia from nothing. In various places I've read that he needed glasses to see the blackboard, but wore them all the time because he wanted to look like Buddy Holly. His eyes did get worse - up to about -5, I'd guess - but there's no way of telling what degree of this was induced by over-wear.

LikeGlass 20 Dec 2004, 17:24

Interesting that someone would write about Elton John inducing myopia. I was examining his glasses when down at the Hard Rock (some grainy pics I took here- ), and they appeared to be more prism, low index, and thick lens stock, then actually minus in the Rx. There is no doubt that there is correction but it looked like a refract in the -4 or -5 range.

Julian 20 Dec 2004, 17:09

A couple links Electra has asked me to post:

1. mentioning Elvis Presley's vision:,2000.html

2. a writer who reckons Elton John's myopia is induced:

Love and kisses, Jules.

Val 04 Dec 2004, 14:01 The link for Laura Pausini -

 03 Dec 2004, 15:49

It would help to be able to read Italian. I don't, so I scrolled down to the entry with her last name, clicked on it and VOILA!

 03 Dec 2004, 10:36

Nice pix and video from Italian Singer Laura Pausini today at

Dave 02 Dec 2004, 16:58

To fans of Jennifer Warnes - her site is back up and contains dozens of pictures from throughout her career.

Filthy McNasty 02 Dec 2004, 06:58

Possibly. It could also be the natural curvature of her phony little face. I don't doubt that there is a bit of Rx in there, though. It's just not much.

D-W-V 02 Dec 2004, 01:30

There's some enlargement (the opposite of cut-in), maybe just from cylinder:

 01 Dec 2004, 16:37

Still wondering about this "coming out" of Bono's....

Maverick 01 Dec 2004, 11:30

I'm not that bothered either way about Avril Lavigne, but all I'd say is that she must have some need for correction as she looked to be a full time wearer in her younger days - see the scan I posted a few weeks back.

Whilst the image is too ropey to determine what sort of lenses she had, it certainly could not be argued that they were props at that time in her life!

Curt 01 Dec 2004, 11:14

Yeah: I was also curious how the original poster figured out that they were - power rings, no cut in, no minification of the background.

Avril states that she has astigmatism in her left eye, but I don't think it could be more than 0.5D of cylinder...


eric 01 Dec 2004, 10:38

Sorry, I meant Avril. What do you reckon her VA is - 20/20 or 20/10?

eric 01 Dec 2004, 10:35

On the basis of those pics, I can make a pretty shrew guess as to April's Rx

L: -0.00

R: -0.00

I could be wrong, of course. She could be wearing +0.00 lenses.

Filthy McNasty 01 Dec 2004, 10:27

There is no discernible script in those lenses. This is not to say that there is NO script, but I would bet that any correction is so low that they're essentially props.

 01 Dec 2004, 09:35

avril lavigne with - lenses

colin 24 Nov 2004, 14:47

hi! i'm new here. i'd just like to ask anyone for the names of uk male celebs who wear glasses

gwgs 22 Nov 2004, 00:53

Yep, although i only watched the first 10 minutes, i saw Sheila Ferguson wearing rimless ones.

I would expect Appleton to wear them as she is a well known gwg.

Eclipse 21 Nov 2004, 15:21

Does anyone know if Elton John has had the laser surgery he said he was going to about two years ago now? I don't remember ever seeing him without glasses on since then but the dark glasses he was wearing on Children In Need the other day didn't look prescription.

TV alerts for people in the UK:

There has been some brief clips of Sharon Osbourne on X Factor wearing black plastic frames. I couldn't tell the prescription but they didn't look very strong.

I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here started tonight and 4 out of 10 celebrities were spotted in the first episode. Joe Pasquale seems to be a full time wearer and I spotted Sheila Ferguson, Natalie Appleton and (I think)Nancy Sorrell briefly.

Julian 16 Nov 2004, 23:31

Mmmm; cool. Serious myopia there.

Love and kisses, Jules.

squinty 16 Nov 2004, 08:50

you have to enter "clay aiken glasses" into the search on that page. Definitly an improvement imho. Much prefer the brown plastic frames for sure.

Sort of makes him look like Seth Green's calmer gentler brother.

don't know if this will work but:

Eclipse 16 Nov 2004, 06:02

Clay Aiken wore a very "obvious" pair of glasses to the American Music Awards. There is a few pictures at:

I've only seen him wearing a much more "discreet" pair of rimless frames before now. One theory I read somewhere was that as he was made to get rid of his glasses when he was on American Idol maybe he is trying to get his look back closer to how it was before and that includes wearing glasses...

kisal 13 Nov 2004, 18:35

FaNaTiKX, those Alicia Keyes pics are fabulous! Isn't the internet a wonderful thing: some photographer can do a photo shoot with a celebrity in New York and we can all enjoy the results in living color.

On the other hand, avoid that Annette Stream link -- it tied up my browser trying to load some streaming video or something and I had to kill the browser to recover.

Maverick 11 Nov 2004, 07:34

Scanned pic from a mag of a young Avril Lavigne in specs.Not the greatest image but at least proves she is a true GWG.

Hi all: Some good pictures of the sexy Alicia Keyes wearing some chunky black specs on Getty Images today. Can't tell if there is any strength to the lenses, but she does look hot!

Here is a sample:


Electra 10 Nov 2004, 05:51

Just to let you know I DO read this thread, can't normally post to it, (see Feedback for explanation), but I will be doing everything I can to find pics people talk about here for my site.

Hope you're all enjoying seeing Bono "come out". We always knew those shades were covering real lenses, he couldn't fool us! I'll get latest pics from the crazy Irishman up on my site as soon as I can.

Karen X 25 Oct 2004, 13:36

Maybe Britney has a similar eyesight problem as Avril Lavigne. It is very difficult to tell what sort of prescription she has.

Britney is definitely plus

Those pictures from 9/25 of Avril Lavigne wearing glasses remind me of my first pair 40 years ago, except my modified cat's-eyes were brown instead of black, but the bottom part was also clear like her frames. Maybe in 20 years, she'll wear a Diplomat Veronica frame, my first drop-temples. :)

Ted 20 Oct 2004, 07:53

Lisa Loeb was also on the McEnroe show last night. He asked her about her glasses and she said she has poor vision and has been wearing specs since grade seven.She also said she gets asked a lot if they are for show or not.

As to "fake musician":

Trevor 28 Sep 2004, 18:20

I have to agree with the "Fake Musician" comment. Ditto!

not very much talent there.

 28 Sep 2004, 14:31

the fake glasses only compliment the fact that she is a fake musician.

Thanks Chris for the great Avril pics. Even if her glasses are'nt real, she still looks great!

Ted 28 Sep 2004, 08:20

Re Avril and her glasses. She has astigmatismn in her left eye.

read the article three quarters of the way down.

Ted 28 Sep 2004, 07:09

I saw a "life and times of AL". In one of the still shots of her childhood there was one picture I'm guessing age nine where she had on glasses. Picture quality not the best so not sure what the rx may have been. Program may have been on VH1.

Curt 28 Sep 2004, 06:23

I stand corrected. There does seem to be a tiny bit of reflection from the lenses in this picture. Still probably planos...

Curt 28 Sep 2004, 06:18

Maverick: that's exactly what I thought. I have not seen a picture yet of Avril where there is any reflection from the glasses she is wearing. Probably not even planos...<sigh>

Maverick 27 Sep 2004, 14:00

The latter I fear ! Would'nt go so far as to say they are planos - look like empty frames to me.

Curt 27 Sep 2004, 11:53

Karen X: Madonna's glasses may be reading glasses (or maybe bifocals). Several other pictures in the series show her reading from a book. Definitely not the same frames that she wore when introducing "The English Rose" or whatever her book was called.

I thought Madonna wore reading glasses. She wore them a few months ago when she was promoting her book and read some of it out to some children.

Curt 17 Sep 2004, 07:54

Pap: Go check for yourself...go to the Getty images site and use the search term "Madonna". There are several pictures of here there, all wearing the same clothes and the same glasses!

And..... how could you possibly judge an rx from that pic?????

Somewhat surprised mind you that the Vatican allowed her to sit in front of the Pope.


Hansel 16 Sep 2004, 14:13

And I await the jury's verdict on the Rx.

I heard she was shortsighted but my impression is a hint of astigmatism in the left eye????

Cazals - Aren't those the kind of glasses Spike Lee wore in his first movie: "She's Gotta Have It" I read the autobiography he wrote about making it, and there was this whole thing about how he had to get those glasses. It seemed like it was the biggest thing (or maybe just to me)

Wurm 27 Aug 2004, 19:50

Well, yeah, I'll probably get around to deleting this. Plenty of rudeness on both sides.

I did get a laugh out of the 'split you into the dork and the nerd' line. That's creative!

However, without dorks and nerds we'd be scratching pictograms in the sand, at best. There certainly wouldn't be any internet to post on (or to search for porn).

Finally, read up on Cazals. Hip-hop has been around awhile and glasses go with it just fine.

It is really hard to tell from that picture, I would say it is a plus rx.

I did find some that I believe are plano's.

Sadly the lovely clarinettist doesn't seem to be playing tonight...hmm. This is who she is (without glasses):

Imagine her in lovely sparkly -6 or so glasses as well. Nice.

oscar 30 Jul 2004, 13:46

Did anyone else in the UK see the Prom concert on BBC4 tonight with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Apart from playing magnificently, my eye was caught by the very lovely second clarinet - a pretty gwg with a very nice myopic correction. Several other attractive gwgs in the orchestra too (as well as some nice g's without g's). Tomorrow night the same orchestra is on BBC2 at 19:00.

About Jessica Simpson's LASIK....

In the interview she describes herself as "legally blind"... she couldn't see her hand in front of her face.......

maybe does she exagerate?

gwgs 19 Jul 2004, 08:19

WOW, that is some cut in.

I wish she would wear plain lenses and not sunglasses all the time.

Andy 19 Jul 2004, 05:30

Good link Dave, thanks a lot. This picture shows another good "bite out":

Dave 18 Jul 2004, 23:49

I'm becoming an Anastacia fan to be sure. I watched an interview on her survival of breast cancer. On being asked "Is optimism also a medicine, because you are always optimistic?" she replied: "I am!... Oh my goodness!... I know, I just... you know... life is so much better when you see it through... you know... through my glasses actually... uuuum... cause they're so big and thick..."

She is well spoken and gives a very good interview.

Dave 17 Jul 2004, 14:04

This is a nice pic. Show's the cut in of both eyes.

Kylie Admirer 17 Jul 2004, 12:34

Thanks for the info Pru. Do you or anyone else know of any photos and/or videos on the 'net of Kylie wearing glasses?

Julian 16 Jul 2004, 09:01

Then again Dee, have you ever looked on a website for pictures of Elijah Wood in glasses? Or Ryan Phillippe? Or Tobey Maguire or Leonardo diCaprio? Sure, you might have more luck with Freddie Prinze jr, but basically fansites are for people who don't like stars in specs, not for connoisseurs like ourselves. (Come to think of it I did have a link to a glasses site for nsync but that's an exception that maybe proves the rule.)

Love and kisses, Jules.

kitten 16 Jul 2004, 08:52


Weslife are an Irish boy band... only four members now as one of them (Bryan) left in March to spend more time with is family and launch a solo career. I've seen a couple of pix of the lads wearing glasses - I know Kian does actually need them from time to time, but not sure about the others, and Mark from the band had laser surgery a couple of years back...

Dee 16 Jul 2004, 06:45

Hey, I keep reading about Westlife on here? Who are they? Never heard of them, so I looked on the Yahoo search and got 5 young guys, no glasses. I looked through pages and pages (and PAGES!) of pics, still no glasses. Is someone messin' with us? There are a couple of them who are quite hot and would be real lookers in glasses.

Pru 15 Jul 2004, 05:37

I am not 100% sure of it's accuracy, but I read (about a year ago) that Kylie's eyesight is getting steadily worse, she used to wear glasses mainly as a fashion accessory with a slight plus lens, but now she is wearing contacts as she is quite dependant on her glasses, especially for reading. She had a squint as a baby and had an operation to straighten her eye and since then there has always been a slight weakness.

She was also videoed removing her sunglasses and putting on glasses to read the menu.

All of which just adds to her beauty!

Kylie Admirer 10 Jul 2004, 09:01

Can anyone help with the questions and request I posted on June 25th?

The Corrs do wear glasses, at least both of the sisters do.

Do you know if girls from Irish band The Corrs wear glasses?Have a pics?

Spec Watcher 04 Jul 2004, 20:09

I am horrible at guessing prescriptions. But I say that she is quite myopic. You'll have a chance to see her on Wednesday at 10PM on MTV.

 04 Jul 2004, 17:15

isn't jessica simpson one of these pathetic "christian" rock no talent put up jobs? or is she the white sheep of the oj simpson family? LOL!

oscar 04 Jul 2004, 11:21

So spec watcher... having seen Jessica in her glasses what would be your estimate of her prescription?

Tod 04 Jul 2004, 10:30

from enlarging the first pic and noticing a slight "cut in" in her right lens, I would have to say she wears a weak minus. -.075 to -1.25. thats my guess

kitten 04 Jul 2004, 09:30

Pics of Liz from girlband Atomic Kitten... bottom one's quite old, but other two are more recent. Not sure what her RX would be tho... any suggestions?

Spec Watcher 03 Jul 2004, 18:45

I just saw a promo on MTV for this upcoming Wednesday's episode of Newlyweds Nick & Jessica. They are documenting Jessica Simpson's laser surgery. She was wearing glasses on the promo. Unfortunately, it was probably for the last time.

A Kylie admirer 25 Jun 2004, 18:10

Does Kylie Minogue wear contacts and just wears glasses sometimes or is she a part time glasses wearer on the verge of needing them full-time? I've seen a few candid photos of her wearing glasses with a plus prescription and only one of those photos was she actually reading.

Also does anyone know how long she's worn glasses? Any photos, old or new, would be great.


Nick 25 Jun 2004, 14:57

I would never have known, although i've seen her with her mum before who wears spex.

Singer Jessica Simpson has corrected her vision with laser treatment after years of being "legally blind."

The "Irresistible" singer, married to former 98 Degrees star Nick Lachey, recently chose Dr. Glenn Kawesch to carry out the delicate procedure and she's elated with the results.

She says, "It's like being healed by God! I was legally blind, I couldn't see without contacts or glasses. I couldn't see my hand in front of me. I couldn't see the big 'E' on the (eye test) screens."

depressed guest 12 Jun 2004, 19:14

Fortunately she had not alone come, but had management ta open disk cumpany, Bodyguards an' friends in the draggin rope, so that immediately someone was ta the place, in order it the door. Are yall wif me? Their Managerin ensured then also fer it that Avril anybody did not come too close, not ta their Posse belonged. In the talc wif Thomas it told of its new album "Under my ta Skin", which comes on 24 May inta the shops. Rockiger should be it as the farst, which is also 'cause of the fact that Avril brung itself inta the Songwritin an' production more. Although it stressed expressly that it had always control of its own music. Proudly it showed Thomas their new Tatta at the wrist, which represents the star, which was also the Logo of their last route. It was not cumpletely so proud on its eyeglasses, which normally always remove it wif television appearaintss. fer the radio the 19-Jaehrige had however left its sehhilfe open, it could not not know that weunz photograph her!

Avril`s statement:

Etwas Mühe hatte die zierliche Avril Lavigne, die schwere Studiotür zu öffnen, um mit Moderator Thomas Bug zu plaudern. Zum Glück war sie nicht allein gekommen, sondern hatte Management, Plattenfirma, Bodyguards und Freunde im Schlepptau, so dass sofort jemand zur Stelle war, um ihr die Tür zu öffnen. Ihre Managerin sorgte dann auch dafür, dass Avril niemand zu nahe kam, der nicht zu ihrer Posse gehörte.

Im Talk mit Thomas erzählte sie von ihrem neuen Album "Under my Skin", das am 24. Mai in die Läden kommt. Rockiger soll es sein als das erste, was auch daran liegt, dass Avril sich ins Songwriting und die Produktion mehr eingebracht hat. Obwohl sie ausdrücklich betonte, dass sie schon immer die Kontrolle über ihre eigene Musik hatte. Stolz zeigte sie Thomas ihr neues Tatto am Handgelenk, das den Stern darstellt, der auch das Logo ihrer letzten Tour war. Nicht ganz so stolz war sie auf ihre Brille, die sie bei Fernsehauftritten normalerweise immer abnimmt. Fürs Radio hatte die 19-Jährige ihre Sehhilfe aber aufgelassen, sie konnte ja nicht wissen, dass wir sie fotografieren!

Electra 27 Apr 2004, 09:42

Argh, I hate text only.....messes up my links, here's the correct link:

Electra 27 Apr 2004, 09:40

I think it's just a disagreement of the term "cut-in". Normally I use it differently, referring to how minus lenses pull the edge of the face further in(see my site"), but as these aren't exactly technical terms, there's nothing to say who's right! Best to just explain futher, what I can see through the right lens is a portion of background, in ultra-sharp focus, where you'd expect to see hair. But I see not cu-in of the face edge at all, if anything, it's out rather than in. Quite odd really, and this sort of distortion has baffled me before. It's a comparatively strong lens, for sure, but I'd be inclined to say plus. Open to the views of others.

Ree 27 Apr 2004, 09:33

Yes, there is a small amount of cut in. Not much anyway, you can see it if you closeup on the face.

SZ6 27 Apr 2004, 08:51

Me neither.

Curt 27 Apr 2004, 08:44

James: sorry, I don't see any cut in at all...

Norah Fan, if you see the program you'll see that the lenses are very hi-index and that there's lots and lots of rx.

In fact of all places it came off one of the Western China provincial satellites which goes to show how much the world's chamged in the past 40 years or so (Memo: stop being a geriatric bore, Eddy). I checked the program but no spiel. If it comes back on again I'll try to get some details. Should be on some website under Nora in Asia or somesuch.

Eddy - Where (satellite, channel,...) did you see the Nora video? I'd love to see her in glasses

Eddy 24 Apr 2004, 16:07

Eddy was sitting in his study quietly but goggle-eyedly (Does this word exist??) watching a WHOLE HOUR of Nora Jones when Lady E irrupted (and erupted). "What the f@#* are you doing camped there in that bloody cave ("cave"? I'd always seen it as a small but significant home of higher learning, my own little Athenaeum) watching that harlot". And much more in the same vein. "You pathetic old man, if I'd known that she was wearing frigging glasses I wouldn't even have considered agreeing to you watching". Crash, as a small but emotionally important memento of a million made ricocheted off the wall. "And I've told you a million times you'll wank yourself to death one day". I apologise to the more delicately sensible of our little community (and God knows but I'm one of them) for having to put down in writing these unfortunate obscenities but I consider it in the interests of science that Lady E in full flight should be properly recorded for posterity.

But, dear friends, it was worth every decibel, every bruise, every broken tchotchke of it. She was simply stunning. An intimate concert in (I think) Tokyo. Singing all those songs she's known for. No glasses while on the piano, just that lovely little arse straining against her jeans.

But then, in between songs, she was interviewed in flagrante spectaculo. We've all seen occasional bespectacled pics on the web but nothing could prepare us for the full widescreen (Eddy's just gone digital) reality. Her little black plastics were almost cats eyes - oh swoon all of you who remember the 50s - and there was some SERIOUS Rx. Even though they were hi-index the stuff at the sides was teeny weeny.

Actually I suspect Lady E's Sapphic side was slightly aroused by her because after she calmed down (does she ever?) she insisted on watching the rest and has been unusually solicitous ever since.

Highly recommended when it comes to a satellite near you.

Anastasia was on TV show Rove Live last night here in AU. A 3/4minute interview can turn into OO heaven....

She was wearing grey metal rectangles, no tint, with what looked like a very high index -4/-5 range lense...

The version of the Legs video I posted the link turns out to have been recorded from VH1, so the quality isn't what you'd expect from the humongous file size.

Dave 20 Apr 2004, 20:21

Hint: Use Kazaa Lite (no addware) Search terms "zz" and "legs"

I downloaded it at over 100 kb/sec. I had it in 10 minutes.

D-W-V 20 Apr 2004, 19:14

To use that link, you need to install the emule client software. Hint: I had to open up a couple of ports in the firewall. Check the FAQ at the emule site for which ports to use. You'll need a full-time internet connection, preferably fast, although I suspect it could work with dial-up if you are incredibly patient and have unlimited monthly hours.

gwgs 20 Apr 2004, 01:19

How does that link work? There is no http:// in it or ftp:// so how do you see the video?

If someone has ftp space to host it, I could upload the file there. About 86 megs; format may be MPEG2 (what's "M2V"?).

tek pa 19 Apr 2004, 17:29

No pics of Fiona Apple, but I did see a few articles of her having something hit her a while back and she was stuck with her glasses, so she is a gwg

gwgs 19 Apr 2004, 04:55

Has anyone got a link to this video? I'd really like to see it (he says panting!)


Tod 19 Apr 2004, 04:15

Yes Plastic Drops, that ZZ Top video was HOT! I wish It was on an apple quicktime mpeg somewhere so i could see it again.

GLoof 19 Apr 2004, 03:40

Sorry, I'm interested in Anastacia only if she's wearing glasses

Plastic Drops For Me 19 Apr 2004, 02:53

Hey Todd, I remembered that ZZ Top video..the chick was hot and the glasses made her even hotter....

Mick 19 Apr 2004, 00:21

Daffy you seem to have missed her on one of the breakfast programs last week or so when she was wearing the genuine article. It was even better than I'd thought it would be.

Daffy 18 Apr 2004, 20:53

Tod and Luci, give me a break. I did not put her in a firing line, nor had a go at her...I mearly stated the obvious (to the OO) and I have the right to be disappointed. I made no reference to her about cancer either. I'm happy that she is a survivor. I am upset at the shows host for bringing it up with her though. But she was OK with it anyway.

Filthy McNasty 18 Apr 2004, 18:44

If Anastacia needs a break I invite her to spend some time on my sun deck. Contacts or glasses, she is HOT.

 18 Apr 2004, 18:21


Tod 18 Apr 2004, 18:17

Does anyone remember the ZZ Top vedio of 'She's got legs" from 20 years ago. Where the girl in the shoe store has glasses and takes them off because she feels tired. Some fat lady steals them and hides them on her but first looks through the lenses to check out the Rx. Later a guy finds her glasses and returns them to her and the two off together. They were real Rx glasses too. I would say about -2.50.

Tod 18 Apr 2004, 17:54

Yes give Anastacia a break!

Anyone have any photos of Fiona Apple in her glasses?

luci 18 Apr 2004, 17:49

Maybe Anastasia can just see better with contacts! Give her a break. She just had cancer.

Daffy 18 Apr 2004, 15:50

I was deeply disappointed last night. Here in the land of Oz (Australia) we had a TV awards show. Anastacia was a guest appearance. Wouldn't you know it, she was wearing plano tinted glasses. While they looked awesome on her, it was upsetting to see another GWG succumb to contacts (Hope she didn't get lasik done).

gwgs 18 Apr 2004, 03:45

Jenny, i have a few photos of sophie ellis bextor - some from the TV and some from her out and about

jenny 12 Apr 2004, 18:32

has anyone ever seen sophie ellis baxter wearing glasses because i seen her once in a paper or magasine and cant remember where i seen her.She looked stunning

Electra 12 Apr 2004, 12:31

Tod: Well said!

Kix 12 Apr 2004, 06:05

Look, I'm not trying to start some war of words here but I have a subscription to the magazine and I double checked before I posted the first time. If Simpson did indeed make the statement, the reporter didn't put it in quotes. And although I don't think Simpson is as air-headed as she comes across on-screen, the phrase "postitively nerdy" doesn't sound like her and has more a journalistic ring to it.

 12 Apr 2004, 05:32

she was quoted here as saying it. how would some reporter know about her glasses prescription if she herself didn't mention it?

Kix 11 Apr 2004, 22:07

For the record, Jessica Simpson doesn't proclaim herself to have a "positively nerdy eyeglass prescription" in the April issue of Allure---the reporter, Alexandra Jacobs makes that observation. I'm not exactly a Jessica Simpson fan but I don't think it's fair when celebs get bashed for things they didn't even say.

Tod 11 Apr 2004, 21:20

I hate these self serving statements from air head celebs like Jessica Simpson.

Wearing and needing glasses does not make you a nerd. Being a nerd makes you a nerd. There are plenty of nerds walking around with 20/20 vision who have never sat behind a phoropter.

SZ6 11 Apr 2004, 20:44

another guest,

Do you have this picture scanned? If so, could you mail it to hookslayer at hotmail dot com?


another guest 11 Apr 2004, 20:11

I have a pic of jessica simpson in glasses. They are pretty strong - probably -6 to -8. She looks even MORE awesome in glasses! Pics of her in glasses seem to be almost non-existent. Anybody have pics?

Guest 11 Apr 2004, 19:53

Has anyone seen the April issue of Allure magazine? Article on Jessica Simpson says she has a downright "nerdy glasses prescription" and is almost legally blind!! Has she had lasik - just can't believe she's never been seem on Newlyweds with glasses with cameras following her 24/7. Anybody know?

Dave 09 Apr 2004, 23:35

God damn, Nelly is hot. Thank you anonymous for that post.

jenny 09 Apr 2004, 02:52

does anyone have any good pics if tash out of atomic kitten wears glasses cause i know the other two wear them but not sure about tash

Filthy McNasty 08 Apr 2004, 20:23

Nelly has a lyric that almost always catches me by surprise. She sings, "It's not that my glass is empty, but...". What I invariably hear is, "It's not that my glasses...", then I have to correct my perception to fit with the rest of the line.

She whould go in glasses more often. She's moderately cute without them, utterly lickable with them.

 08 Apr 2004, 19:41

Nelly wearing glasses

Jo 06 Apr 2004, 16:04

I've heard that Kylie Minogue wears glasses for reading. Does anyone know where I can see photos of her wearing glasses? Also any further information would be great e.g.How long she's had glasses, what her prescription is. The only picture I've seen of her in glasses is on the front cover of one of her albums a few years ago. I think those glasses might have been props, but it's difficult to tell as it's a small picture.

Tod 05 Apr 2004, 10:29

Tod 05 Apr 2004, 10:28

I hope this works better than my April 3rd posts

Tod 05 Apr 2004, 08:07

just go to their search and type in : Atomic Kitten glasses.

Tod 05 Apr 2004, 08:05

Yes 4eyes try locating atomic Kitten on Rex features. i saw some pic of them in glasses a few years ago. Unfortunatly, Rexfeatures no longer allows thier thumbnail pics to open larger as the once did to the general publis and will only do so for the private press members.

4eyes 05 Apr 2004, 06:13

has anyone got any pics of the atomic kitten girls in glasses? read an interview with one of them and she said they all wore glasses

Geri on rex features

Fan of Anastacia 26 Mar 2004, 06:27

There is nothing wrong about her wearing contact lenses for now. She is stil a GWG. Almost all eyeglass wearers have CL and wear them from time to time, myself included. Don't worry, this gal is an OO so she will show up in glasses sooner or later and what's great is she's so willing to talk about her lens wearing and eyesight as well as her other health problems. It is so refreshing to have a celeb be so open and honest. You Go Girl!

Guest 26 Mar 2004, 02:03

In UK magazine interview with Anastacia, the following section explains the situation :

Q. You're not wearing your trademark glasses anymore. Have you had an image change ?

A. Not really. I just wanted contacts. The only reason I never took the glasses off before is because I couldn't see !! I also wanted to hold onto my glasses because they were who I was before I had my record deal, so it's kind of wild for me now I have contacts. I'm not that great at them and there's still a lot of drama and pokes in the eye.

I agree with previous post - whilst not unattract, she does look bland without her glasses.

gwgs 26 Mar 2004, 00:30

I hardly think wearing contact lenses instead of glasses is going to bring her success and make record shops change their minds and stock her records.

Kokopelli 25 Mar 2004, 21:15

I read in a Dutch tv magazine that she's got contacts. She said it was the first time she saw herself without glasses.

I'm not a fan of er music at all, but think it's a shame if got rid of the glasses. She looks kinda bland without them I think.

minic 25 Mar 2004, 20:29

Myopicmax, I am big Anastacia fan and I get updates from her web site and sometimes I go to read message board and it was disappointing seeing her without glasses on her latest pictures and there was some negative feedback on that also, but no explanation. I got from friend also her naked picture from Playboy with no glasses. I got couple of her DVD's, one was from Las Vegas, Divas that is my favorite and The video collection and every song she would change at least twice, even three times different glasses, some close shots at her glasses alone, when she slowly put them on, I always thought her prescription was mild, but it really isn't, just in the begining there is close out on her lenses and they appear to be on the stronger side. During bonus materials her producer even said that no matter what kind of problems they got into during filming for Anastacia only thing what always mattered was her glasses. But he understood because that is her trademark. Really great DVD, too bad that here in U.S.A. none of the music stores would carry her stuff and only place to get it is from her web site. Maybe that is why she is changing her image in order to get more exposure in U.S. market. That would be really sad, I love her voice and songs, but Anastacia without glasses???

Tod 16 Mar 2004, 12:05

yes Myopicmax, in the 1969 film doctumentry "Woodstock" there is a gorgous GWG and she is wearing three piece rimless glasses.

Eddy 16 Mar 2004, 12:04

Not only do I think it's a fake but also I think I know whodunit. But it's OK.

gwgs 16 Mar 2004, 07:04

I see (no pun intended!)

Thanks for the info.

Karl 16 Mar 2004, 06:01

I read somewhere that Mariah has a lazy eye and after studying pics of her I think she has. That would explain the thicker lens.

gwgs 16 Mar 2004, 02:05

Wow, Mariah looks hot in that pic. WOWSA

Definitely passes the Boner Test hey Filthy????

Why do you think they're too frumpy? She wears sunglasses all the time that are a lot bigger than that.

How can you tell its fake? Her left lense looks stronger than her right lense and there is therefore one reason to suggest it's not a fake

myopicmax 15 Mar 2004, 22:15

saw the end of what I gather is the new single for Anastacia there were some shots with no glasses. Anyone know the story there. On other note has anyone seen the movie Woodstock ? in the Santana number there is a wonderful GWG she's right into the music she must of taken the good acid.

Filthy McNasty 15 Mar 2004, 19:11

I agree it's fake - they're way too frumpy on her. She'd have something smaller and more fashionable.

BTW, Mariah, if I'm wrong, you can prove it by wearing those glasses next time we have torrid steamy sex, okay?


Ah, well, for what it cost, it was worth a try.

Curt 15 Mar 2004, 12:02

Andy: Looks to me like another very well done Mariah Carey fake. I have heard that she wears specs, but with a little detective work, I'll bet you can find that same picture on the Internet somewhere without the glasses. That's a pretty good fake, however...

Electra 15 Mar 2004, 11:45

Clay is really pushing the limits for me, but I'm going to put him up on my site when I do the new celeb pages because of his loyal following.

Andy 15 Mar 2004, 01:31

Eclipse 13 Mar 2004, 14:44

I haven't seen Clay Aiken mentioned here but he looks pretty nearsighted from the pictures in these two forum threads:

Can anyone have a guess at his prescription?

 12 Mar 2004, 15:17

Nelly Furtado wears glasses on French Fun Radio (10.03.2004) . She sings 2 songs. Beautiful pictures on site.

 06 Mar 2004, 05:37

VIC are you male or female? How old are you? Are the glasses you are picking up next week your first ones? What is your prescription?

Vic 03 Mar 2004, 15:06

Does Beyonce wear glasses? I have + glasses but I've never tried wearing them all day can it be done? without getting bluriness (well picking glasses up next week)

james 01 Mar 2004, 11:03

the alicia keys definately ARE NOT plano! some of the ones from the side show significant power rings. i think they are around -2 or so. she looks gorgeous

Luc 01 Mar 2004, 09:14

Links finally works. Wow does she look gorgeous! I've looked very close, they're not plano's. In some pictures you can see a cut-in if you look very close. Maybe -0.75 of -1.00. Wow, hope she starts wearing the glasses more and more!

GwGs 01 Mar 2004, 04:11

She looks great.

Can't help feeling they're plano though

Has anyone found any recent pictures of Rachel Stevens in glasses? The only one I've seen is the one someone linked to here a while ago. That picture seemed a few years old - Pre "S Club 7".

Electra 23 Feb 2004, 09:33

The view I want is for these hot celebrities to CLUE IN that they look hotter in glasses and save the contact lenses for necessities!

GwGs 23 Feb 2004, 03:02

Good for you Caroline, if only everyone took the same view.

Caroline 21 Feb 2004, 06:53

I now appreciate why Kylie wears her glasses for more than just reading. I took a few minutes to get used to focussing on distances but after that everything was perfect. My distance vision is possibly slightly better with my glasses, but definately not worse. I liked the feeling of seeing everything through my +2 lenses, so I think I will carry on with full-time wearing.

Does anyone have any more pics of Kylie in her glasses?

gauloises 20 Feb 2004, 17:39

axl wore glasses a several times live and in Videos, just look at the November Rain Video... he wore em sometimes when he was playing piano (maybe a tribute to Elton John?)

Electra 20 Feb 2004, 13:39

I got a anonymous e-mail telling me to look for Axl Rose in glasses, but I can't find anything. Help!

Caroline 19 Feb 2004, 23:11

Kylie Minogue wears +2 glasses all day sometimes does she? I have had +2 glasses myself for about a year now. I have never tried wearing them for anything other than reading before but I am now going to see how I get on wearing them all day. I will post back.

GwGs 15 Feb 2004, 00:22

Lovely photos Curt, i especially like the penultimate one.

I've seen a couple more of her with glasses - one of which she is wearing small rectangular frames with possibly +3 lenses in, this shot is taken out and about somewhere and she is with Gwyneth Paltrow.

The media seem to make a big thing of it when a celeb is first seen with spex;

Quite a few papers ran front page stories when Nicole Kidman first wore glasses out - e.g. The Daily Mail had 1/2 a page photo of Nicole and a headline saying "Nicole looks spec-tacular" or words to that effect.

A few other papers did a story when Gillian Anderson was first seeing wearing spex saying "Spexy".

What is the big drama with celebs wearing glasses? They've been wearing them for years!

Karen 14 Feb 2004, 08:05


Is your posting in reply to mine? If it is do you think she needs glasses/contacts all the time but usually wears contacts. She does seem to wear her glasses "out and about" in public as a full-time wearer would. Is +2 a common prescription for full-time wear?

Curt 13 Feb 2004, 12:33

Folks made a lot of fuss when Madonna showed up wearing reading glasses at the English Rose Tea Party in Sept. of last year. But a search reveals that "the Material Girl" has worn glasses in the past. Check these out:

Electra 12 Feb 2004, 16:05

Apparently someone here has a photo of the band "Westlife" in glasses. 20 photos, according to my source. Would that person contact me as I'd like to put them up on my website.

Karen 08 Feb 2004, 02:06

Does anyone have any idea what Kylie Minogues prescription is? I know she has a "plus" prescription judging by photos of her wearing glasses but I am not very good at guessing prescriptions.

Filthy McNasty 03 Feb 2004, 09:25

I just look at the source code and paste the URL for the pic I want - the javascriipt image protect is attached to the web page, not the pic. So for instance, the URL for the Norah Jones pic is Call it up this way and you can save it without having to download everything else on the page, save the pic you want, then delete it.

ReFractor 03 Feb 2004, 07:18

Thanks Kisal for that link to several of my favorite female singers wearing glasses.

Hint to newbies: The pictures on that website can't be lifted simply by right clicking on them. But there is still a way of getting them. Simply save the entire page to your desktop (under File menu, choose Save As...), and after it gets done saving them, just open the new folder on the desktop and take out all the pictures you want. Then you can delete the saved page and you've still got its pictures.

kisal 03 Feb 2004, 05:22

Anyone out there found pictures of Norah Jones' new glasses? I have seen the shot(s) of her in wire rims as at

but I was intrigued by the lines in a recent USA Today interview (accompanied by, sadly a bare eyed photograph):

"With her hair clipped back and her soft, pretty features framed by functional dark-rimmed glasses. . ."

Lots of pictures and videos of Gracia a nearsighted german idol in glasses.


Olivia 01 Jan 2004, 19:02

Regarding Kylie Minogue. I think she is long sighted as someone has posted a picture of that article from The Sun in the forum I mentioned in my previous post. The photo shows Kylie wearing glasses as she holds a book or newspaper in front of her.

bopbopgod 01 Jan 2004, 06:13

to bernard: i don't if there are any pix of Ritchie in glasses but there is a good ritchie neville website here:

Olivia 31 Dec 2003, 10:38

To the anonymous one. I have posted a question on a Kylie Minogue fan forum regarding her glasses. Click here

ehpc 29 Dec 2003, 15:36

Answer to the question "Can any of the Redtop 'newspapers' be taken seriously?"..............most emphatically NOT:) Peter

Sarah 28 Dec 2003, 22:44

ehpc,you are correct. Can any of "the redtops" be taken sriously

ehpc 28 Dec 2003, 08:02

Without wishing to attempt to 'speak for' Sarah,obviously, I took her question as casting doubt on the idea that The Sun could SERIOUSLY be called a newspaper, as opposed to a comic, a fish-wrapper,a low-grade propaganda sheet, or whatever:) Peter

GwGs 27 Dec 2003, 04:50

Hi Sarah,

Yeah, "The Sun" is a newspaper -

 24 Dec 2003, 04:05

Thanks for replying GWGs. Does anyone know where I can see this photo of Kylie or is it 1 of the 2 I linked to in my post in November?

Sarah 23 Dec 2003, 23:21

is " The Sun " a newspaper ??

GwGs 23 Dec 2003, 02:41

To the anonymous one;

I read in The Sun newspaper that had a front page photo of her wearing spex that she is -3.5

However, this photo looked as if the prescription was actually a plus and i would guess she is actually +3 to 4 but i don't know.

 22 Dec 2003, 22:15

Any info on Kylie Minogues prescription?

Mel C

Alanis Morissette

and finally Sheryl Crow

What do you think about them? Do you know something about their Rx?

me 17 Dec 2003, 14:40

I read on a Rachel Stevens/S Club 7 website that Rachel does wear glasses but usually wears contacts.

Maverick 17 Dec 2003, 07:17

Sorry, but my interpretation of the Rex Features Rachel Stevens thumbnails was incorrect - wishful thinking perhaps !

Found a German site that has the Rex pics in full size which shows they were just shades.

If anyone is still interested they are at :

Maverick 17 Dec 2003, 00:54

There are a lot of the 'out shopping' type pics of Rachel Stevens on Rex Features where you can see she is wearing glasses, so it seems she needs full time correction.

Unfortunately the fact that you can now only get the thumbnails on this site makes it frustrating.

david 16 Dec 2003, 16:51

hi no name,

i am not sure if those glasses are real or not but i know that she does definately wear contacts all the time, so she is a real wearer.

 16 Dec 2003, 14:45

Are the glasses Rachel is wearing real? I've never seen her wearing glasses before.

Good question. Victoria looked absolutely stunning wearing those square glasses. Hope that she'll wear them again....

Peter 09 Dec 2003, 15:11

Does Victoria Beckham still wear glasses? She used to wear them a lot.....or does she wear contacts or had laser?

lizzi 07 Dec 2003, 02:45


its about a -2.5 or -3.

now can i please have the westlife photos

Oscar 06 Dec 2003, 10:43

Result! It was a question of joining from scratch rather than trying to cut any corners.

Nice pix Lizzi / Maverick. In the HLUK2002 3 folder, photo 382 shows a bit of cut-in at the edges of the lenses, so I'd agree with Maverick about the prescription. Say minus 2.5 or maybe 3?

Oscar 06 Dec 2003, 10:32

Thanks Maverick - I'll have another go. I don't normally have any problem with these things.

Maverick 06 Dec 2003, 09:35

Not sure what is going wrong for you on those Cat Deeley pics on the Yahoo Groups site Oscar. I joined it, (its a public site so access is pretty instantaneous) and have had no problem. Worth persevering as they are a nice group of screen caps taken, apparently, during the two weeks before her Lasik when she could'nt wear her contacts.

Difficult to assess her prescription but from some evidence of cut in, and general appearance of the lenses I'd say something in the -2 to -3 range.

Oscar 06 Dec 2003, 09:14

Sorry - that link won't work on my computer. Still comes up with that wretched yahoo group-error message.

Lizzi, you obviously have more luck with this, but is that after correcting "gropus" and "grops" in the URL? And can anyone post a link which is more likely to work?

Oscar 05 Dec 2003, 11:51

Yes - specially as it referred to an earlier posted link in this section! What's more that's one that doesn't work...though it's a Yahoo problem we've probably all had with one site or another.

GwGs 05 Dec 2003, 08:51

Uhh, honestly, if only people would post in the right sections!

Julian 04 Dec 2003, 16:55

Quite right too. What on earth was a question like that doing in the Vision Training thread?

Love and kisses, Jules.

Oscar 04 Dec 2003, 11:13

Confusing...that was a reply to the question which Lizzi posted in the Vision training thread.

Oscar 04 Dec 2003, 11:12

easier said than done Lizzi. First you sign up to that group (no problem), then it comes up with an error message saying Group-Check or something like that. Any idea if that photo is also somewhere more accessible?

now please can i have the link to the westlife photos wearing glasses.

Ubie 27 Nov 2003, 14:43

There were two or three Britany pics a few months ago on a site. Pics showed Britany wearing what appeared to be about +2 specs. The pics were rather clear, and seemed to be taken somewhere during a shopping trip.

GwGs 27 Nov 2003, 03:58

I have seen a couple of photos from side on where you can admire the thickness of the lenses and you can also see through the lenses and they look very much like prescription.

dave 26 Nov 2003, 17:45

does anyone have any solid evidence from any pictures or interviews etc that britneys glasses are real?

kelly clarkson's prescription seems to be around -10 roughly, i think. wow! its very nice to see such a beautiful girl need glasses so badly

Guest 21 Nov 2003, 11:26

ANON I think Kylie has a mild plus prescription judging by the photos. She might wear them for distances and not just for reading. Maybe she'll go full time eventually. There aren't many photos of Kylie wearing glasses and I think those 2 are probably the best.

mickey 20 Nov 2003, 22:57

My -8.00 glasses look very much like hers.

Filthy McNasty 20 Oct 2003, 21:26

The movie is "Dancer in the Dark". The glasses appear to be a real Rx, but much lower than would warrant the thicknes. They're props, made unnaturally thick. Still, she's cute, in a kind of starving-to-death way.

Daffy 20 Oct 2003, 20:51

Well I don't know if I can class her as a musician or actor or neither. I saw a promo on TV last night of a musical (a movies with lots of singing/songs) featuring "BJORK". It looked really weird. But, I saw some shots in the promo where she was wearing black plastic rimmed glasses that looked quite thick. The screen shot was real quick so I don't know if they are real or fake. There was considerable edge thicknes as well, but they can do that with no Rx.

If anyone knows the name of the movie/musical and/or seen it, I'd be interested to know.

lizzi 19 Oct 2003, 02:06

does anyone else know where i can find photos of westlife wearing glasses

There's some of Kian on this website (or there was last time I looked)

Found the J.Lo specs reference. It was posted on 'Actress' Thread on 06-14-03.

Last poster (below) ... fine recollection! J.Lo specs seem to be + Take a look.

The RX of J-Lo looked + to me, I can be wrong...... But all I can see is that she has big eyes when she's wearing her specs??!!

Mac 08 Oct 2003, 17:33


I recall seeing a website reference here (or perhaps elsewhere) about three months ago. There were 2 or 3 reasonably decent photos showing J.Lo with specs. The Rx looked to be in the -2 to -3 range. The site reference may still be in the ES Thread Archives.

Tod 08 Oct 2003, 16:23

I once heard J-Lo in an interview when asked she had "angel eyes" refering to her movie of that name, she said, "no I don't. I am suppose to wear glasses". Does anyone have any idea of her Rx?

Those are the ones. Big black frames with plus lenses in them. Now I know Madonna would probably look stunning in more or less anything, but the specs suited her very nicely - hope we see more of them.

I have pictures of Eminem where you can see some "cut in", so he is definitly shortsighted. I would guess about -2.

Julian 14 Sep 2003, 06:54

From the web on Eminem+glasses:

1. Glasses: He wears glasses for things up close (long-sighted) and he looks so cute wearing them!

2. Still, there's no escaping that Eminem has matured, right down to the wire-rimmed glasses he's taken to wearing.

3. Photos:

Love and kisses, Jules.

From London's "Metro" newspaper on Thursday just gone....

"Don't be fooled into thinking Eminem's specs are just a fad - he needs them. A source said: 'He is shortsighted but tells people his glasses are just a fashion statement.'"

I'm sure there are people here who could verify.

Liz from UK pop act Atomic Kitten quite often wears glasses with what seems to be a minus prescription in them.

She was on tv this evening (in UK) on a current affairs programme called "Real Story with Fiona Bruce". Liz wasn't singing, she was a reportor on an article about old peoples care home being closed down. She wore her glasses for the whole report. Her glasses were narrow rimless rectangles. They looked great on her. She's quite pretty too.

Did anyone see the 'sea of pluses' at the Music Hall of Fame show on Bravo? Notable was Phil Collins, with lots of light reflection below the glasses, as pluses tend to do in bright light. Van Morrison sported some cool-dude specs....all that was missing were Gere and K.Russell!

As usual, the women had to hide their need for correction!

What you have to do to make it work is;

search for whoever you want @

Phil - You CAN make pix on rex features bigger without paying... right click on the pic you want and go down to properties. Copy and paste the URL into the address bar and change the word THUMBS to PREVIEWS and press enter. The picture should then come up bigger.

Hope that helps!

Hey, does anyone have any pics of Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea in Glasses??

lentifan 07 Jul 2003, 16:43


Not sure what the connection with musicians is, but the first girl on that site is very pretty. She'd look lovely wearing some of these frames with nice strong lenses. I presume that you can somehow put the frames on the faces? Wish I understood German.

Hi everybody!

What about Mariah Carey? Is she shortsighted or no? Do you have pics of her with glasses?

Loonyettes 15 Jun 2003, 13:07

Good call Leon - I'd forgotten all about her. I remember F.A.'s first single - she looked fantastic! I even saw her once in the street, outside a record store where she was doing a signing. The record company got her to wear contacts for F.A.'s second video, but she continued to wear them after that. On the cover of one of her solo albums there is a great picture of her in some hornrims - quite think too. Ahhh.

Leon 08 Jun 2003, 15:07

Female lead singer Eddi Reader (Fairground Attraction) used to wear cool minus specs in the 80's!

Loonyettes 08 Jun 2003, 13:46

Remember all of you in the UK - there's a Morrissey documentary on Channel 4 tonight at 11.15PM. He was one of the best glasses wearer of the 1980s - great national health specs followed by great horn rims. He had a good, high minus prescription, as did Lloyd Cole, who also wore NHS glasses. Back in those days, he was an example to all of us who had to wear NHS specs.

Another neglected glasses wearing pioneer at a time when glasses were very unpopular was David Sylvian. Check out the cover of Japan's album *Tin Drum* for proof. Those are great specs. Paddy Mcaloon of Prefab Sprout wore some great big framed thick minus glasses in the early days of Prefab Sprout, as I recall. Those were horrible times ...

Can anyone remember any good female glasses wearers from the world of pop in the 1980s? I remember an interview where Alison Moyet said the first thing she did in the morning was put on her glasses, but never saw any pictures of her in them.

Hearty 25 May 2003, 11:34

PS...Oh, if you look into Chesty's pics, there is one on the bottom, at a concert or som., where a woman is reaching out, and he has this look on his face, that so looks like 'revenge of the nerds', to me.

Gosh, I'd love to have his glasses collection!!!!!


Hearty 25 May 2003, 11:22

OK, here's a great link for pics of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington. I feel it's kinda poopy that no one I know, seems to like him or appreciate his beauty....but I keep tryin' to spread his pics around. Actually, the younger teen girls probably appreciate him, but when I talk about him to my friends, I get a sidelong glance! Anyway, check'm out and click on the pics for the larger size!

loonyettes 24 May 2003, 11:58

Re: the Spice Girls. No that it's particularly important, but I have a slightly different recollection ...

Scary Spice started wearing her brown rectangular glasses whilst the Spice Girls were still together. If I remember rightly, she debuted them on the Brit Awards. It was a great moment.

I remember Posh Spice's lenses being pretty thin ...

Anyone remember the auditions for that band Hearsay - so many of the young women wore glasses!

GwGs 23 May 2003, 01:55

All the Spice Girls do (did?) wear glasses;

Posh wore rectangular silver rimmed frames or heavy black rimmed frames, they both looked like they had some serious lenses in them.

Sporty wore some heavy black rectangular frames but only started wearing them after the Spice Girls split up and wears them quite a lot now.

Scary wore again wore the same rectangular frames but wore them a lot

Ginger Spice i've seen wearing some silver rimmed large round frames and some silver rimmed oval ones as well as some rectangular half rimless frames in one of her music videos!

slimshady69 22 May 2003, 15:55

i want more emma.............. infact i think all the former spice girls wear glasses

Paula Abdul may be an OO. This week on American Idol, the host Ryan Seacrest was wearing a fairly strong pair (-4 or better) of glasses. When he got to Paula for introductions, she told him he "looked really good tonight and I like your glasses".

Reasonable picture of a bespectacled Britney Spears in Heat this week. Jordan and Halle Berry also pictured with sunglasses ... anyone think they're prescription?

American Idol finalist Tamyra Gray apparently used to wear glasses and now contacts. An excerpt from an interview at

IML: How about boyfriends? Did you date when you were younger?

Tamyra: No, I was too skinny! I wore glasses -- I hadn't gotten contacts yet.

IML: An awkward phase?

Tamyra: Yes. I still think I'm going through my awkward phase!

david 14 Apr 2003, 15:10

they are on the bombastic page but there are extra ones on the other website. and some of them are large high resolution photos where you are more likely to spot any rx. they are in the 'other photos' section, and then in the 2003 gallery. they are the first two galleries inside that one.


try it out

another one where she looks as though her eyes are way out of focus while she is inside the opticians without her glasses. wow! ok, i will stop now

david 13 Apr 2003, 17:58

and these are the glasses she was wearing on the way into the opticians. they definately look real. -2 ish is my guess

david 13 Apr 2003, 17:44

john. i agree also with britney looking very out of focus in those pictures when she takes off her glasses. especially on this picture

john 12 Apr 2003, 18:52

i have just seen those britney pics and i agree with '-12's', she does look very out of focus. she is actually in an opticians at the time. it mentioned it at the bottom of one of the photos. thats why some of the picutures appear to have no rx. the ones where she is outside of the shop are obviously her real glasses and seem to have a reasonable minus lens in them. very nice to see. especially her eyes without the glasses. she looks very vulnerable. anyone else have an opinion on her rx and whether she seems to struggle without the glasses?

those britney photos are great. they look around -1 to -2 ish to me. nothing major. she does however look very out of focus in the photos in that galery without the glasses. she has that distant look that a nearsighted person tends to have without correction. thats my opinion anyway. any thoughts?

Myhopeinhere 07 Apr 2003, 07:44

I had a look,you have to go to the archives but they look like very low rx to me,if any,think it's just light refracting througth them

dave 07 Apr 2003, 05:29 everyone should check this out!!!!!!!! look at the britney spears gallery called something like 'melrose avenue la 5th of march'. great up close britney glasses shots. picture 37 seems to show some major indentation of her face through her right lens meaning she is possibly around -3 or -4 ish. not sure though. please let me know what you think of her prescription from these pics. you have to register to view the pictures but it takes all of 1 minute and its free. they are amazing!!!

Interview with Anastacia taken from:

"PC> You've met Elton John?

A> Yeah, Elton John reviewed my album in a magazine called Interview,

and in the process was very taken by me as an artist, so he...they set up a meeting for him and I. It was so weird for me to be able to go "Oh my god I'm going to meet Elton!". I listened to his albums as a kid and I'm wearing glasses because he did! The minute I had to wear prescription I was like "COOL! I can wear glasses, this is the most awesome thing in the world! I'm going to get a bunch of colours!" So it was all due to the fact that he used to wear glasses and be so free spirited about it that I had to wear glasses at such a young age. I was like "Okay, that's probably cool!" and I've been wearing them ever since, but we had a great meeting, we talked about possibly working together in the future and I'm still such a great fan of his,he's such a great admirer of music and always has been, and he's been such a great inspiration to a lot of people."

Hmmm, they're clearly Rx glasses... no doubt about it.

Lisa's prescription answered by herself.


Q: So, what's the prescription on those bad boys? Are we talking legally blind? Would you know a loved one past 5 feet? Does squinting really help myopics or is it just an endearing way to tell us sighted people you have no idea what we're showing you?

A: Squinting does help to a certain extent. Also, making a tiny triangle- 1mm x 1mm with your fingers and looking through it also helps (seriously). My prescription is -4.75 +0.50 x 8 in my right eye, and -5.75 + 0.50 x 24 in my left..

Stefan 04 Feb 2003, 14:28 - Lisa Loeb has a new album out, and her specs feature quite prominently on the cover shot. Also, on the fan questions page of her homepage, somebody asked her what her prescription is - interesting!

so okay, only one more time and then I promise this discussion will stop, honestly...

"god punishing her for wearing glasses"-

no, you must have understood me wrong,

I just meant that the question, why exactly one of the few singers wearing spex had to get breast cancer. I just meant that doesn't matter at all. It was just irony that I wrote this thing with god... okay, I see that you understood me wrong and now I'd say:

okay, just forget about it, I'm sorry if I offended someone, I hope now you understand what I wanted to say (just that the comment wasn't fitting)

So finally: back to the regular topic...

okay... ;-)


minic 30 Jan 2003, 21:07

Seems to me,that you go little bit over board with your reaction to my comment and misrepresenting what it meant. There was absolutely no intension of making any connection between weak eyes, fetishism or anything else and Anastacia's cancer. I can't even think, how anyone can make such stupid assumption. I feel very sorry, that it happened to her and hope for her full recovery, but not just because she wears glasses. I know she has a lot of fans here on ES and I happened to be one of them, reading back on some previous comments seems like not many comments on her performance, but more on her picture cover on CD and her glasses. But that is part of her personality which she apparently enjoyes. Few months ago I've read interview with her and she said, that she never got much exposure here in U.S.A, because she never fit american stereotype with glasses she wears and that she owns large collection of them. I am sure she could choose lenses or some other way to perform without glasses, but she didn't and there is a lot of fans patriculary here on ES admiring her for that. And I just don't see how anyone can deny it and not feel sad, that this person just got diagnosed with this terrible disease.I just don't see any connection between God punishing her for wearing glasses or whatever you are trying to say. Sorry.

Curt: I did not call anyone an idiot, and I did not attack anyone. But this is discourse what we are doing here and it is good that we can tell each other our opinion when we think that a COMMENT was not good and that's what I did. And I guess that's okay, isn't it?

Cause our preference for ladies with specs does not blur our sense for reality, but this particular sentence was just unneccesary. Please do not delete this one, and please just think about it, okay?

Without calling anyone an idiot,


Curt 30 Jan 2003, 05:20

hope....: I think Wurm deleted your post because you were attacking another poster, not because it was the truth. I agree with Wurm - this is a forum for discussing glasses. If you do not agree with someone elses post, that's fine. But it does not give you the right to call them an idiot, or attack them personally.

Filthy McNasty 29 Jan 2003, 21:26

For what it's worth, I agree with you. This post and the deleted one.

hope you read it 29 Jan 2003, 16:36

PS: and of course I wish Anastacia the best too, but not because she got weak eyes.

hope you read it 29 Jan 2003, 16:35

okay, my opinion was being censored and my entry was deleted, probably because I was telling the truth and used a four-letter word but I would like to say it once again, and this time without those words: the sentence minic wrote,

Out of all the celebrities out there the one making us GWG lovers happy...???

concerning Anastacia's breast cancer is unnecessary, unseriously and it just does not fit. Blame god for the fact that he out of all those women he had to take a glasses-wearer for giving breast-cancer... I mean this is DUMB, guys I am sorry, it does not matter if she's the saint of Latex-lovers, a foot fetish queen or a myope lady, any comment like this is just not fitting !

Hope this message won't be deleted this time, because this is my opinion, even though I am a glasses lover too and wouldn't otherwise visit this page, but this goes too far and this is dumb, exaggerated, etc.

myofan 27 Jan 2003, 10:02

I'm sure the entire EyeScene community wishes her well in this difficult time. There's an "official" statement (and a nice glasses pic) at .

minic 26 Jan 2003, 19:09

Reading some magazines over the Internet last week I noticed article in one of European papers which left me particulary sad. It said that Anastacia ( age 29 )was diagnosed with breast cancer and is scheduled for surgery and chemoterapy. Out of all the celebrities out there the one making us GWG lovers happy...??? Hope she will make it !!!

Lance is Hot 16 Jan 2003, 17:27

Does Joey Fatone of NSYNC wear glasses? I know JC Justin and Chris do and Lance doesn't but what about Joey

Minus Dude (Lusts Lance) 16 Jan 2003, 10:09

for Jamie:

I sure wish I did have good photos of Lance Bass in glasses. I recently stumbled onto the 'nsync glasses (pretty boys) site mentioned below & wasn't convinced Lance was wearing prescription glasses in any photos. Appears he's only one of the group with potentially 20/20 vision. But I'm still hoping...

If you enjoy imagining Lance in glasses, there are some slash stories that make mention of Lance wearing glasses. One in particular (which admittedly I don't quite get) involves Chris' reaction to Lance getting new glasses. Here's the website:

Other fiction referencing Lance in glasses can be found via searches with the terms: Lance glasses. You might throw in another 'nsyncer's name to weed out Lance Armstrong pages & be prepared to wade through stories which reference the glasses one drinks out of.

JC was sporting glasses at the awards show televised Monday evening. Watching a recap on E! news live Tuesday, his hat & hair made it a little hard to get a good look at him.

Cover of Anastacia CD that was just being discussed.

 14 Jan 2003, 05:23

Andy 14 Jan 2003, 05:01

Guest you're right mentioning Anastacia. I got this CD and the cover is also very nice, giving for the first time true info about her glasses. I try to scan the cover and hopefully succeed in capturing some pictures of the opening sequence of the video.

Guest 13 Jan 2003, 12:59

I cant believe that fans of Anastacia haven't mentioned her CD "You'll never be alone".

The fourth track is a video of the single & starts with a close-up of her slowly putting on her glasses. You can play it in reverse so she is taking them off too. Great fun & great value at £1:99 from Woollies.

Watch this forum topic for Avril in glasses pics.

The topic starter, "KarenX", is a fairly new glasses wearer herself and has said she is interested in glasses now. She has started a couple of other glasses related topics in the same forum.


Wurm 25 Dec 2002, 15:53

This link came in from an email correspondent -- Jessica Simpson having trouble with her contact lenses (if I scanned it correctly):

Vidge 25 Dec 2002, 14:44

One of my favorite GWG is Anastacia NewKirk. She must always wear glasses to correct her myopia and astigmatism. Eyeglasses which she is very proud to wear by the way. When some talent agent jerk told her to get contacts, she told him: "why don't you get them". She also suffers from Crohn's disease which affects the intestinal tract and is why she has that surgical scar on her abdomin, of which she is also not ashamed of ether and doesn't visibly try to hide. She is one spirited lady and a damn good singer.

Oscar 24 Dec 2002, 17:42

That would be very nice, or just the link to it, since I don't think Wurm posts pictures on EyeScene (or have I been missing a lot?)

Happy Christmas everybody!

Vidge 24 Dec 2002, 14:54

Do you have access to such a photo of Avril Lavigny? If so please email it to the EYESCENE administrator at <> I am sure he will post it here if you ask him to. Thanks

 24 Dec 2002, 06:16

Avril Lavigne is pretty hot in glasses. Does anyone know what sort of prescription she's got? I am fairly sure that she needs them full time and wears contacts sometimes as there is a school year-book photo of her wearing glasses.

jim 22 Dec 2002, 16:29

i agree, britney is by for the best gwg

What about Norah Jones? On the official site there's a few pix of her wearing glasses. Not very close up ones though, so the search will continue...

myopicmax 14 Dec 2002, 15:50

Speaking of John Lennon one wonders if he liked his GWGS apart from Cynthia, he had a girlfriend in the seventies When he had a break from yoko ono, he was involved with a attractive Asian lady who was around -5 ( I'm no expert) her name escapes me. (may-ling or something along those lines).

Maverick 14 Dec 2002, 10:31

Oscar : The Dusty Springfield biog 'Dancing with Demons' has that 'hockey' pic of her with glasses. Dont though get the idea it is something special - it is'nt !

Having said that the biog is cheap in paperback and available from all the usual sources.

Oscar 13 Dec 2002, 15:52

I'm there with you Eddy... But Brock, there's no reason why you should know if your young(ish) was a British pop star in the 60s, was famous for singing in bare feet (truly), and had a huge hit with her Eurovision Song - Puppet on a String - now you may well know that, I think? And as far as I know she never wore specs when performing.

Eddy 13 Dec 2002, 15:29

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaarhg. La jeunesse!!!!!!!!!

Brock 13 Dec 2002, 11:54

Please help me out here - my ignorance is showing. Aside from being a gorgeous GWG, who is Sandie Shaw?

Teah 13 Dec 2002, 11:27

John and Cynthia met while in art school because they were in a class where for some reason the students were testing eachother's eyes. they were paired together, and "clicked" when they both found out that both of them were equally very nearsighted! oo love story. would make a good fiction story if we added details...

Bert 13 Dec 2002, 10:39

Another favourite GWG from this period is John Lennon's first wife Cynthia. She wore and wears glasses and I recollect used to wear sunglasses, no doubt prescription sunglasses, quite a common way of hiding poor eyesight but one that (sadly in my view) seems not to be much used by GWGs these days.

I expect there are photos of Cynthia Lennon on the web.

Stefan 13 Dec 2002, 07:49

Oscar - I do remember browsing through Sandie Shaw's autobiography in a bookshop, and there was something about her being very nearsighted (I don't think it said 'extremely' - and even extreme's seem to've become relative these days). There was something about how she couldn't see a thing when she was performing without her glasses on at the beginning of her career and about what a wonderful thing contacts were when she got them, even though the first pairs were very cumbersome compared to today - something like that. It was one of those autobiographies with lots of photos in the middle of the book, but I don't think that there was any pic of her in specs... (I've a suspicion if there had been, I'd've bought the book.)

myopicmax 13 Dec 2002, 01:39

Wonderful Sandie Shaw photo, You guys find some great photos I take my hat of to you.The Dusty Pics I saw was of the Hockey team .

 12 Dec 2002, 18:05

2 Sandie Shaw Rex Feautures

Oscar 12 Dec 2002, 17:39

Good question! You may well be right but I'd guess a little less than that - I think early plastic lenses were particularly thick (and I assume these are plastic), especially in enormous frames. If they're glass then they might well be at least -8. Someone must be good at this - I always find it hard to judge with huge frames. Is there anything out there about Sandie being extremely myopic? Must have a look...anyway, great picture!

Stefan 12 Dec 2002, 16:01

Wonderful Sandie Shaw pic, thank you very much! The prescription of her right eye seems slightly easier to guess maybe - a -7 or -8, I would think. Would you think less than that, Oscar?

Oscar 12 Dec 2002, 12:50

Fantastic pic of Sandie Shaw!! Looks like a minus prescription which appears huge because of the frames but actually isn't that strong? Do you guys agree?

A pic of Dusty as a member of her school hockey team, wearing glasses, would be awesome for lots of reasons...I must look for that book! (can you remember the author?)

Maverick 12 Dec 2002, 12:06

Hey, wonderful pic of Sandie Shaw Myhopeinhere.

I remember when I was a kid back in the 60's keeping a scrap book of GWG's and having a nice pic of Sandie in black plastic octagonal frames. I also recall a pic of Dusty I had then of her wearing black plastic frames. What with her eye makeup and hair style it was impossible to judge her prescription though I recall.Sadly Ive long lost that scrap book !

I have recently browsed through a biog of Dusty (which I think is widely available) it contains a pic of her with her secondary school hockey team I think where she is wearing her glasses. I think there is some reference in the text about her glasses as well but I'm not 100% sure.

Myhopeinhere 11 Dec 2002, 23:02

Here we go guys Sandie Shaw in amazing glases!!

myopicmax 11 Dec 2002, 20:39

In the program Backstage. it was when she was at high school, I think

you will find it virtual impossible to find it unless you can find the program, and then convert the photos of video they weren't great photos. I don't have the equipment or nouse to do. Also Sandie Shaw was mentioned with the same bad eyesight. there are a few of her around on the web very strong minus.

Teah 11 Dec 2002, 19:16

i've searched and searched for dusty but found no mention of her short sightedness OR or any older pics of her wearing glasses!

myopicmax 11 Dec 2002, 18:54

Oscar, As you have descibed, rimless 50's style. It was brought up constantly how short sighted she was. When she changed her name from Mary O'Brien to Dusty Springfield she lost her old self and I guess glasses where with the old self, There was no more pictures from that point. Lets face it it's still hard to keep a glamourous image at this time. But I think that perception is changing in the last few years thanks to Eye Scene and related sites.


Mick 11 Dec 2002, 04:15

Speaking of Skulker and Ozrock in general, has anyone found any gwg pics of Tania Doko of bachelor Girl. I'm sure they exist but not on their website.

Oscar 11 Dec 2002, 03:26

Now that's very interesting. There's quite a lot of mention of Dusty being extremely short-sighted on the web but no pictures of her as a gwg. But sometimes there is mention of early photos showing her in National Health glasses.

Does anyone know if any are available on the web? And myopicmax, what did her glasses look like that you saw on the tv programme?

myopicmax 11 Dec 2002, 02:20

Just saw a program on Dusty Springfield, big emphasis how short sighted she was, there was one scene where she described how she couldn't see the makeup on her eyes in the mirror. There was pictures of her in glasses at high school, but after that she didn't wear them again.

English made, so some of you may have seen it a while ago.

Oscar 08 Dec 2002, 15:00

I think that's probably about right, though hard to tell about the AR coating and the amount of cyl. Wow. She's a find. Does anyone know if Skulker are any good as a band (apart from having a dream gwg which certainly helps...)?

 08 Dec 2002, 14:31

Vidge 08 Dec 2002, 14:29

Greers' glasses appear to be about -6 with some cyl. having hi-index lenses with an AR coating. Anyone agree with this assment of her vision?

Oscar 08 Dec 2002, 13:56

Greer is sensational. Has anyone more (accessible) pics? A google image search didn't produce much...

Eminem also sports them in the video for "Stan."

Fathom 05 Dec 2002, 20:34

I've recently been seeing, of all people, Eminem wearing specs in various magazine photos (either People or US magazines). They're metal-framed and worn to public apperances. Interesting that a 'bad-boy rapper' would be so willing to wear them in public (since it seems quite a contrast to the image), but then again, he does like trying to catch people off guard.

Portia 04 Dec 2002, 19:44

Last poster, please do tell us about French singers wearing glasses on stage. Could prove interesting!

 04 Dec 2002, 19:41

Yes, having recently come from Europe, they smoke far more than Americans. This is largely because tobacco is so heavily taxed and therefore expensive in America. Plus, the end of any disscussion about cigs in America is always sue the tobacco companies- no one wants to take responsibility for their own choices. But on a different note, I saw the greatest French Opera and at least 5 of the preformers wore glasses in the story on stage. Couldn't tell if they were real or plano though.

And yes, Jules. Despite my last post (!), thank you for such a very reasonable view on this. As you say, we're much better off sticking with women and men in glasses.

Oscar 04 Dec 2002, 13:03

Teah - sorry to quibble over completely unverifiable statistics, but do you live there? I have done so (over a period of years) and it's certainly an astoundingly high percentage - at least 2 out of 3 young professional working women, possibly if not probably more. Especially in the evening when they are no longer at work.

teah 04 Dec 2002, 12:52

far fewer than 95% of parisien girls smoke. it's more like something between 1/2 and 2/3.

bateau_d_amour 04 Dec 2002, 12:51

There's some smoking in the pics afterall.

The 3rd pic in (css7) & the middle pic on their website.

Julian 04 Dec 2002, 10:19

Thanks for an injection of common sense. I particularly dislike smoking myself, but that isn't what we're here to discuss, so let's not discuss it.

Love and kisses, Jules.

Oscar 04 Dec 2002, 09:54

...and as a P.S. I should also mention where the second-most-lovely gwgs are to be found - Italy. The smoking percentage there is (if anything) even higher than in France.

So we have the countries of Verlaine, Debussy, Monet and of Verdi, Dante and Michelangelo. Not exactly uncivilized backwaters then...and tolerant too...

After that I need to find a nice gwg with a lit cigarette.

Oscar 04 Dec 2002, 09:28

Ah. We have a nice Atlantic rift opening up here. Even though cigarettes were spotted in the US until a few years ago when tobacco-fascism became the order of the day - and they are, metaphorically, grown in Virginia (USA), most Europeans have a very much more tolerant view of smoking. In my view the most beautiful girls in the world are French. And in Paris at least about 95% of them smoke like chimneys. Is there any problem with that? For me (n.b.): not a bit of it. They look fab, especially the large number of them who also wear glasses (usually low minus - but specs are quite trendy there at the moment). The combination of the two is - I think - wonderful if done with style and grace.

So...could I suggest we keep off the subject of smoking. It's liable to open up a nasty transatlantic slanging match. I happen to think the European view of this is sane, tolerant and open-minded. But almost any American (barring the tiny handful who presumably now meet in secret to open a packet of Marlboro lights) is presumably going to take a completely different view. Let's not argue over this since there is one thing we're all agreed about (and that's to do with glasses rather than cigarettes)!!

Curt 04 Dec 2002, 09:01

OGL: Just out of curiousity, how many ash tray bottoms have you licked?!? I am not a smoker, but I have several friends that are and I tolerate their habit. This is really a forum about glasses and vision, not a place to air your feelings about lifestyle issues. Truth be known, the name of the band is "the Smoking Section", presumably named for a smokin' (not smoking) horn section, not because they are all nicotine addicts.

while not relating to musicians exactly this does relate to music. for all you oo's out there i suggest you download a song called jackie o by john mellencamp. glasses are an important part of the girl in the song.(who is not jackie o by the way) my only question now is....what about the music video to go along?

Curt 22 Nov 2002, 12:01

Teah: What I do (each morning) is just go to Rex Features and type in the word "spectacles". You know those Brits - they speak the same language that we do in the US, but with some subtle variations. I've tried searching on there for "glasses" and only found champagne glasses! :-) Spectacles yields many, many pictures, however.

teah 22 Nov 2002, 11:10

curt: do you have the link to the michael jackson photo on rex features? i'm sure plenty of people would be interested in seeing him with glasses.


The OGL 22 Nov 2002, 07:40

Re Beyonce Knowles: 20/20 mag (a trade journal) has a monthly page with celebs in spex featured, unfortunately most of them are plano sun. In the Sept. issue there's a half thumbnail of her with the caption "...models Valentino 5211S from Safilo on the pages of "Movieline" magazine"... It's a large goggle/shield type frame, only the left side of her face is show in the thumbnail, they're probably plano.

Curt 22 Nov 2002, 06:24

It looks like presbyopia has even reached the "King of Pop". Rex Features has a couple photos today of Michael Jackson slipping on a pair of reading glasses before speaking at what looks like a pulpit. He is freaky-enough looking already; maybe glasses will make him look at bit more mainstream (read: normal).

Who is Elton John?

Oscar 20 Nov 2002, 17:03

Oh yes, I remember. Anyone going to hear the French Radio orchestra in Carnegie Hall, New York, at the end of this week should keep an eye open for several of the players: a couple of truly delectable gwgs among the violinists, and the celesta player wears glasses sometimes and looks marvellous in them, as she also has particuarly beautiful silky brown hair.

Oscar 20 Nov 2002, 17:00

Alan - you take the words out of my mouth. US and GB style rules are different on the placing of punctuation within quotation marks. It would only happen in GB style if the question mark was part of the quotation.

Could somebody remind me what this thread is meant to be about...

Alan 20 Nov 2002, 15:02

I believe in Britain, the question mark is usually placed outside the quotation marks, whereas in the US, teachers generally teach that any punctuation goes *inside* the quotation marks. Outside makes a lot more sense to me, but unfortunately, I don't believe any of you have much ground to argue upon, as this site is international.

But we seem to have gotten on one of those threads where people are squawking at one another instead of posting on-topic. That's probably a good thing to avoid, as *no-one* likes reading it.

Right, so how about that Elton John character?

MVIII 20 Nov 2002, 12:12

OGL: Thank you so much for helping me with my plot. Now I know there is at least "one" wannabe still alive.

Portia: Still waiting for those stats. I promise I won't say a word to the New York City police.

Guest: The question mark does go outside the quotations. You are forgiven, however.

Jake: Does one need to resort to using words like "crap"? That word is so vile. It's a shame you feel so much anger.

Doc 19 Nov 2002, 15:41

Yup, I agree. Maybe Guest should go back and finish his basic education

myofan 19 Nov 2002, 14:16

Yup. I don't like illiterate posts or posters, but it's worse when a member of that group "corrects" otherwise correct grammar.

Jake 19 Nov 2002, 12:59

Guest, I hate to correct your correction.

But my "?" does not belong inside quotation marks. I think you need to go back to Grammar School.

The OGL 19 Nov 2002, 07:17

Portia: no apologies necessary, I would love to be one of your chattels, or objects 8<) How do I get an application form to get in line as one of your "wannabes"? ;<)

Guest 19 Nov 2002, 07:06

Oh, Jake. The "?" goes inside the quotation marks.

And, if you're a man stand up for yourself. When a woman talks about men as though they're mere chattel she deserves to be taken to task, either in a friendly way, or perhaps with a more serious tone. My take is that MVIII was being friendly.

Perhaps Portia would care to appologize to her fellow male travelers for speaking about us as though we're mere objects.

MVIII 18 Nov 2002, 06:54

Just a bit of playful prose.

teah 17 Nov 2002, 19:36

absolutely nothing. digressions do sometimes get rather fasinating and very involving. let's try to get back on topic though. still it's nice to keep these boards relaxed and friendly and so let's not impose subject guidelines so strict people can't have fun

Jake 17 Nov 2002, 10:10

What's all this crap have to do with the topic "Musicians"?

MVIII 17 Nov 2002, 07:58

Portia, thank you. Yes, the term I was looking for was Film Noir. It all sounds the same to me. Rule number one. When mimicing a French accent, close your nostrals. A close pin will due, or the use of the thumb and forefinger will suffice.

Unfortunately, this method makes nearly everything sound the same, so when trying to translate the sound into words, something is occasionally lost in the spelling. Which leads me to rule number two.

In French, the sound of "x" is silent. Thus, noi, noix, and noir all sound the same, particularly, as I said, with one's nostrals closed.

Now, if I might ask your help in further developing my plot. How many times have you been married? Also, how many wannabe's were there? And, finally, are any of them still alive?

Respectfully submitted.


ps. I too am a fan of IMDB

MVIII, your writing shows promise. I think we have a section of this site whose devotees await eagerly each episode of the newest vision story.

"Film Noir" is the term you were seeking, I believe. My favorite movie site is

My life is as exciting as I can handle right now, but not material for a screen play.

I found EYESCENE surfing the web a few years ago and have been delighted to exchange ideas with a group of people who have similar interests.

MVIII 16 Nov 2002, 06:45


If you haven't yet sold the movie rights to your life, I'd be interested. Sounds like a bit of "Film Noix" coming to life on our little site. (How do you spell that?)

Are you a black widow? Count to five, and tell the truth.

We'll call it, "Strangers In The Optomitrists Chair." Not to be confused with "Strangers On A Train."

In the opening scene takes place on a steamy night somewhere down around Miami. Our protagonist has just met Mr. X, and they're taking a walk near the shore. We hear waves breaking in the background. He says, "I really can't see very well." And, she responds with, "Oh, I like a man who can't see too well." Not unlike Kathleen Turner and William Hurt in "Body Heat."

Then, we find the pair back in her office. She's putting a nice pair of -10's on him. They're gold wire frames with CR-39 lenses that have the most gorgeous lenses with polished edges. She's breathing deep all the while.

The phone rings. It's her husband. He's a handsome mature man several years older than our protagonist. Funny, he looks a lot like Richard Crenna.

Gee, I wonder where all this could be leading?

Who was the FAB singer wearing glasses on Children in need on BBC TV last night?

Any photo links?


Portia 15 Nov 2002, 21:14


All of my husbands (and wannabes)have been high myopes.

We all have our "types".

i have posted 2 mccartney pics in the dom spexy guys yahoo group. i have several others but they're in the wrong format and my efforts to convert the files were fruitless. i'll have ask my boyfriend (he's a computer geek) for help next time i see they should be up somewhere in the middle of next week. while they are better than the ones posted...please enjoy what i did manage to get posted :)

Portia, you wicked child, you. Chasing after men with more than a touch of myopia.

Portia 14 Nov 2002, 20:17

Re: the alarm clock reason for having Lasik. My husband just has a very light German-made alarm clock that he picks up from the nightstand and brings close enough to see.

I realized only after having read several posts about the habits of the highly myopic that he makes a habit of putting his glasses in the same place, in a special case (that his mother made with his initials in needlepoint!)so that he can be assured of finding them again in the morning. He's a -9 -10 or so. If he only knew how much the glasses were part of the attraction!

teah 14 Nov 2002, 17:04

for all you guys who think paul mccartney was cute when he was young i have some absolutely wonderful pictures of him wearing glasses. most of them are thick rimmed black ones. wow. unfortuatly i don't remember the website i got them from but they're on my hard drive. if anyone wants to see them, i'll be more than happy to email them to you!


Alan 14 Nov 2002, 05:55

Drew Carey had lasik, so he wears glasses on his shows still (as they are his trademark), but I guess he doesn't wear them otherwise. Sounds like a whole dumb plan to me, but maybe he has his reasons for wanting lasik.

"Monovision" is correcting one eye for distance and one eye for seeing up-close. Neither eye can see clearly at all distances, but if the person can suppress or ignore a little blur from the 'off' eye, the are able to see clearly at any distance between their two eyes.

I think people have a tendency to just latch onto the idea of "not needing" glasses. It gives them a good feeling when they think about not having to put anything on in the morning in order to see clearly. They like the 'idea' of not being dependent. This seems to happen even to people who *like* wearing glasses...perhaps Elton John is an example. It's kind of funny, though; from what I've heard, the thing most people report as the best part about having had lasik: being able to see the alarm clock when they wake up in the morning. !!! Who cares? The point is, it's all about the 'idea', random feelings not really based on factors that matter in a concrete way.

Portia 13 Nov 2002, 22:58

I wonder if Elton John will have big charity auction of his glasses collection? That 200 page fully illustrated catalogue from Sotheby's or Christie's would be a collector's item in itself.

blueberry 13 Nov 2002, 20:14

this isn't exactly on the musicians topic...but as we're talking about monovision...what exactly is that? could i have some back ground info?

thanks a lot

The OGL 13 Nov 2002, 17:39

Curt: I didn't go monovision until I was 56 years of age, and had no binocular problems right from the git go. I'm a pilot, at the time drove over 25,000 miles per year on very narrow two lane roads in bad weather,served as an Air Force reservist, etc and again, no adaptation problems. But, you either adapt to mono or you don't, that's why it's not a good idea to do it through lasik. If he goes mono with contacts, it would probably only be an occasional situation and probably just in one eye, or he may go with readers. On rare ocasions, I've seen people intentionally undercorrect by 2 or so diopters, and then they can read and only wear specs occasionally for distance tasking like driving, etc. But I agree, with glasses as his trademark for such a long period of time, why screw with lasik?

Alan 13 Nov 2002, 14:58

With so many pairs of glasses and so much history with them, I sure hope he has a good reason not to prefer contacts over lasik. If he wants to go without glasses, why not wear contacts? Well, obviously, he has a reason; they're easier than lasik (price wouldn't be a concern to him one way or the other, I imagine). I just wonder if his reason is a good one (and I doubt it).

Curt 13 Nov 2002, 13:56

OGL - possible, though not highly likely. Elton has had binocular vision for years, and at 55 years of age I wonder how well he would adapt to monovision. And I wonder if he would even try contacts, after wearing specs for so many years???

blueberry 13 Nov 2002, 12:26


blueberry 13 Nov 2002, 12:26


The OGL 13 Nov 2002, 11:56

Curt: not necessarily.....he could opt for monovision lasik (a bad choice, but then so is lasik) or monovision contact (s), or even bifocal contacts.

blueberry 13 Nov 2002, 11:33

may we rejoice in the *weaker points* of laser surgery!

Curt 13 Nov 2002, 11:21

Fear not! At his age (55), he will be back in readers, half specs or bifocals in no time!!!

blueberry 13 Nov 2002, 11:07

sniffle sniffle...he's had some absolutely GREAT frames over the years!

Glassez Luva 11 Nov 2002, 09:01


Sorry, I added an l to the last link. It should have been

If that does not work go to Yahoo, type in Beyonce glasses, and that should direct you to the site I found the link.

Glassez Luva 11 Nov 2002, 08:52


Way to call me on that. I was waiting for somebody to call me on that, when I said that Beyonce failed the exam. In further irony, not only did Beyonce say that she failed the eye exam, she states that under the caption of Secret Flaws.

Type in this link I think that Beyonce is one of the sexiest celebrities around. What a body!!! I can only imagine what she would look like with specs to go with it.

The OGL 11 Nov 2002, 06:19

glassez luva: Beyonce "failed" an eye exam? If by this it means she needs to get glasses by ES standards she didn't fail, she passed gloriously! 8<) Anyway, could you post that link or just post the actual words from the story, I'd like to see it.

glassez luva 08 Nov 2002, 15:28

I was pleased to read on a website for the R&B group Destiny's Child that Beyonce Knowles failed an eye exam and should wear glasses. Unfortunately I have never seen her in specs. If anyone knows of any pictures of her in specs, I would love to see them.

KYGL 05 Nov 2002, 13:04

That reminds me of a story I remember about Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks. Someone asked her how she wrote such dreamy music, was it drugs or mysticism. She said no, that she was very nearsighted and would take off her glasses and the mood was just right!

Pippi 05 Nov 2002, 12:33

I think Martine usually wears contacts though. She made some jokey comment a couple of years back about taking them out when she was performing so she couldnt see the audience and get nervous!

GwGs 02 Nov 2002, 11:42

It annoys me when people say they are blind without their spex and you have only seen them wear them a couple of times, she obviously isn't, and evidently from the pix i've seen doesn't have a high rx either!!


Maverick 01 Nov 2002, 11:01

I saw it and , yes Ive always thought she looks great in glasses. Not sure why she says she is blind without them though as any picture Ive seen of her wearing them, and there are quite a few decent ones around - Rex features for instance - suggest a pretty minor prescription

Alan 01 Nov 2002, 10:56

Some pics I guess from the music awards. I don't understand why she'd apologize for wearing them - they look great on her, and I can't imagine many people saying otherwise.

Dave 01 Nov 2002, 10:08

Did any1 see the national music awards? It was presented by Martine Mccutchoen (sory if spelt wrong)When she came out she apologised for having to wear glasses as they might not go with her dress,i thought they made her look much sexier!She said she was blind with out them.

l8r all

curious 26 Oct 2002, 21:47

Has anyone heard of or know anything about an Aussie singer from 80's or 90's named Kim Durant? I read an article in a mag once which said she had to have white tape put around the stage edges so that she didn't fall off because she was so myopic and couldn't wear contacts.

Doc 26 Oct 2002, 20:06

I heard an interesting song today. It was called "Four-eyed Girls" by Rhett Miller.He is the lead singer in the alt-country group "Old 97s".

I researched the CD that it was on and I found another song titled "Terrible Vision". I think it is interesting to find two songs with similar subjects on the same CD. I think they might both be about an acquaintence of the artist.

The OGL 24 Oct 2002, 17:16

LikeGlass: Nope, that's not the answer. They don't have the FDA regs overseas, lenses don't have to be shatterproof. They can make them as thin as optics will allow. Anyway you slice it, the higher the index the thinner the lens, and glass has a relatively high index.

girnur 24 Oct 2002, 14:49

I have to agree with OGL. My current lenses are made of glass and their edge are not as thick as it would have been if the lenses were made out of CR39.

Yes. I finally got the guts to post something here...:)

LikeGlass 24 Oct 2002, 12:15

But there in-lies the answer. With a glass lens, the "base" has to be much thicker so that the thinest part of the lens will not be easy to shatter.

The OGL 24 Oct 2002, 10:08

LikeGlass: I beg to differ. Crown glass is usually a 1.53 index, whereas CR-39 is a 1.47, so glass would actually be thinner than regular (non-hi index) plastic or nearly the same as polycarb which is usually around 1.54. This is especially true overseas where there's no government mandate regarding the thickness at the thinnest point which is the center of a minus lens.

speco 23 Oct 2002, 22:55

me: could you pls give the links to the sources. I tried for several hrs without success.

speco 23 Oct 2002, 19:40

Thanks for the info "me". Lets hope the trend continues

LikeGlass 23 Oct 2002, 17:34

One answer to this is that John was from a time when glass lenses were used. By nature, they are thicker, and when compaired to our modern frame of referance, look to be a much higner Rx.

kaleidoscopeyes 23 Oct 2002, 16:19

that's funny...i expected him to be a lot more..i guess most people's definitions of "very" is way lower than the eyescene's

 23 Oct 2002, 15:39

I wouldn't say John Lennon was "very" nearsighted. I would guess he was somewhere between -3 and -4.

kaleidoscopeyes 23 Oct 2002, 14:49

i am a big fan of john lennon and want to know more about his vision. he was famous for being very nearsighted and having really strong glasses...but i'm terrible at guessing prescriptions as was wandering whether anybody here had any idea as to what it was...

many thanks,


me 23 Oct 2002, 07:52

My source for this info is two websites; where they had a pic of Britney wearing glasses and the caption said "Britney gets more spex" and also commented on her getting a new prescription.

Val 23 Oct 2002, 05:58

Does anyone know where to find pictures with Debbie Gibson wearing glasses ? She is a singer and I remember one of her videos made in 1987 (I think) where she was wearing in some scenes black plastic frames glasses with -3 or -4 lenses in them. Of course I could be wrong, because it's a long time since then.

speco 22 Oct 2002, 01:54

Well "me" Most GWG's lovers would love to hear that especially of Britney. I hope that its real and not a mere wish. What is your source for this information? Pretty curious!!

me 22 Oct 2002, 00:42

I heard it's gone up, and she is now -2.25 in the right eye and -2 in the left

Go on Britney, i hope they get stronger again soon.

Anon  21 Oct 2002, 16:00

Does anyone know if Britney Spears prescription has increased? I notice the title for one of the new photos of Britney on GwGs site is "BritneySpears-nuprescrip002.jpg". When was the photo taken(I'm presuming it was sometime this year)?

I haven't seen her in those frames before. She looks really good in them

The OGL 16 Oct 2002, 08:19

Specs4: you're beautiful. To boil down what you said to one word, it's experience. About the only thing I can add, and this is what requires the "stealthy sneak" at times, it to try and look through the side of the lens at a mid range or distant "target", that can help.

specs4ever- 15 Oct 2002, 20:46

Really, it is just a guess, based on past observations, and compairisons to lenses that we know the prescription. Just knowing from the lenses concentric rings that they are fairly strong is a good start. Then you take into account how much the edge of the person's face is shrunken in, and you come up with a guess. Sometimes I have been as much as 4D too high, sometimes the same too low. Of course, I don't tell anyone here that I am wrong once in a while.

wondering... 15 Oct 2002, 14:08

how can you guys tell the rx of someone's glasses just by seeing them? i mean, i can tell by the concentric rings whether they are strong or not, but all you seem to be much more precise. how do i go about determining the strength of someone's glasses more accuratly?


Glowworm 03 Oct 2002, 05:31

GwGs: of course it's questionable whether artists like Britney Spears or Hear'Say deserve being called musicians considerung the quality of the stuff they're publishing.

However, considering the aim of this message board I think it's not too important to rate the quality of any music. What we need to give the board a structure is some categorization to decide whether someone is to be featured as a musician, an actor or whatever, regardless of how good he is in that discplines. If someone is looking for pics of Britney Spears, he will check the "musicians" section rather than any other one.

Never forget it's not about the music but about the fascination of seeing them with glasses. And imho bad music doesn't destroy the thrill of a nice glasses pic. (You don't have to listen to the music while watching the pic. ;-) ) Rating their music is up to other message boards, not to this one.

GwGs 02 Oct 2002, 08:10

That's what i thought Oscar.

When i saw her on TV the other day she was right next to the camera (unless it was zoomed in) she can't have been more than 18 inches away as she was seriously squinting, her eyes didn't look that comfortable focusing on anything.

The question has to be asked, why didn't she wear her spex?

On a seperate note, i don't know why Hear'say members can be posted in Musicians as i would hardly call what they used to produce (now they have split) as Music, would you?


Oscar 02 Oct 2002, 07:52

GwGs, I think Suzanne Shaw is quite myopic. During the original Popstars series in some of the earlier episodes she often wore hew glasses - about minus 4 or 5 I'd guess.

GboySL 02 Oct 2002, 05:21

Does Jenifer Lopaz wear glasses? I feel that she needs glasses since she always squint when she see the distance objects.

GwGs 02 Oct 2002, 01:18

I was gonna mention Suzanne Shaw out of Hear'say as she is a gwg, and won Spectacle Wearer of the Year in 2001. I saw on her tv the other day with her group members, and she was seriously squinting at the camera, i guess she ALSO had contact lenses in cos her eyes seemed a bit misty/dazed.

I didn't think she was that myopic, but having seen that footage i'm inclined to think otherwise. There is a press cutting in my site on the "In the Media" page ( where she says that she has broken loads of pairs of glasses in "steamy makeouts"!!!


me 01 Oct 2002, 14:41

I forgot to put the groups name!

It is Hear'say.

me 01 Oct 2002, 14:40

Good news/bad news.

The British pop group have announced today that they have decided to split up and the band members will be "lying low" for a while.

This is a blessing for our ears as there will be less cheesy pop music around. Unfortunately there will be no more sightings of the 2 very attractive female group members wearing their glasses.

S-type 30 Sep 2002, 13:14

yes, Britney's little sis is much cuter and has worse eyesight. Oh, if she were only 18....Mmmm

Curt 30 Sep 2002, 11:33

An interesting picture of the Spears family on Rexfeatures. Looks like Jamie Lynn (Britany's little sis) needs/wears her specs more than big sis. Most pictures of her that I have seen is with glasses. What a cutie...

GwGs 28 Sep 2002, 13:10

Thanks Don Ron.

If any of you are wondering where the update is, it will probably go up Monday evening or Tuesday.


DON-RON 28 Sep 2002, 06:27

best glasses.. is very great

Fathom 27 Sep 2002, 20:01

I saw that issue of The Star, too, and I believe it was last Friday. I personally think those frames were too heavy to really suit her, but hey, opinions vary.

OGL, thanks for sharing that tidbit from People. At first I was going to say that maybe glasses are just one of her main props for going incognito, but if a crowd had gathered, they would've already recognized her, and yet she STILL insisted on putting them on, demo lenses (which attracts even more attention) and all....which leads me to believe she does enjoy wearing glasses to some degree!

S-type 27 Sep 2002, 13:16

I have become aware that one of the Dixie Chicks wears contact lenses/ glasses. I am not a big C&W fan but does anyone have any more info? The DC's are all cute, btw

The OGL 27 Sep 2002, 07:21

Which issue of the Star was that? I looked at the checkout line last Sunday and the story wasn't in that one. Also, there's a cute Britney story in the Behind The Seams column in People, either the September 16 or 23 issue, can't remember which. She stopped at a fashion eyeglass store in California, tried on several, bought a brown plastic tortoise pair for $199, the staff tried to get the logo off the demo lenses and couldn't (dummies, I could've done it in a heartbeat) and because a crowd was gathering she just left the store wearing the frames, plano demo lenses with logo and all. The writer speculated this may start a whole new trend of teenieboppers wearing plano glasses with logos. We know that she wears scrip glasses from time to time, this episode seems to suggest she just plain likes wearing glasses, maybe GOC?

BritneyIn GlassesFan 23 Sep 2002, 21:40

The National Star I bought today at the grocery store has Britney on the Cover, as well as within, wearing really cute brown plastic cateye frames.

She looks great to say the least. Aren't plastic frames attractive? Metal frames suddenly look so out of it in comparision.

KYGL 21 Sep 2002, 13:18

The beautiful Avril Lavigne does indeed wear glasses, and not just plano props.

Here's a link to a school picture of her wearing them.

By the way, the website has more Avril pix than any I have found, and there are others pix of her wearing glasses there too.

GwGs 21 Sep 2002, 12:19

I've posted in this section b4 about Holly Valance - Bam Bam from Kiss 100 ( had her on the show a couple of months ago and they briefly made a joke about her not being able to find her glasses - to long ago to remember, they might be some audio or pix on Bam's site listed above though.


me 21 Sep 2002, 10:02

I've heard that Australian actress and singer Holly Valance wears glasses. Does anyone know of any pics and what her prescription could be?

The OGL 21 Sep 2002, 08:27

As mentioned before, I've seen these in person, they are definitely low minus & possible some low cyl.

GwGs 21 Sep 2002, 03:00

They don't look that strong, and from the side on pics, they seem to relatively weak.

Shame, but never mind, lets hope they get stronger!!


 20 Sep 2002, 18:02

someone else thinks her's are medium plus??

jim 07 Sep 2002, 16:32

yep, i saw the programme too. I agree with the mild minus prescription. Hopefully she will wear them throughout the series. That would be great. Not a fan of hears but she looked good with glasses. especially seen as they are real minus lenses

me 07 Sep 2002, 15:53

Geri Halliwell (ex Spice Girl) was one of the judges on "Popstars - The Rivals" on ITV1 tonight (in the UK). She occasionally wore some very nice glasses with light delicate frames that suited her very well. She seemed to have a mild minus prescription.

I always thought she wore glasses but this is the first time I've seen her wear them in public.

g...lover 07 Sep 2002, 02:36

GwGs 05 Sep 2002, 06:52

Oh Gosh, I saw her on the tv and without glasses and she is stunning, that picture doesn't really do her justice.

I'll look out for some more of her with her spex on.

The OGL 21 Aug 2002, 06:15

Unfortunately, no. We had no idea she'd even be in the mall, of course the local paper mentioned it the day after. In any event, management would probably frown at we associates standing at the front of the store, camera in hand. And, she was really booking when they walked by, heard later she stopped at a jeans store but that was about it. That was a misprint in the last post, I meant to say "her" entourage, not "our".

 21 Aug 2002, 01:53

OGL: Any pics??

The OGL 20 Aug 2002, 18:26

Britney's are real, a low minus with a low amount of cyl, probably about -.50 or -.75 sph and -.50 or so cyl. I was at work at the chain store and she came to town on an outdoor concert tour of shopping malls, they set up in the far end of our parking lot. She came by with two or three of our entourage, walking briskly through the mall (it was probably in her contract) and I happened to be at the front of the store and caught a quick peek from the front and a quick one from the side/rear as she swept on by. Read in the paper the next day she did stop at a couple stores elsewhere in the mall, wish she'd needed an adjustment or a nosepad or something.

jim 20 Aug 2002, 16:26

does anyone really actually think that britneys glasses are real or just for show. anyone have a realistic prescription guess? she is by far the best gwg

GLASSESLOVER 18 Aug 2002, 11:41

sophie ellis bextor is very very sexy in glasses.

has anybody more pics of kylie minouge in glasses?


GwGs 18 Aug 2002, 09:04

Look in the Mail of Sunday today as there is an advert featuring "Myleene from Hear'say" - she is advertising "laser vision correction" (lasik), she looks rough in the photo, but it's interesting to see her advertising it as I've never seen in her spex!

appr. ten years ago verona begun as a singer ( i don´t know her song, it was a latin one, something like a "ohrwurm")

but i only saw it accidently she was a singer before she was famous because of the nice guy she married;)

Val 14 Aug 2002, 02:00

Sorry toesrus, I know her only from RTL.

toesrus 13 Aug 2002, 08:59


she did. so it is the (right) place;)

GwGs 13 Aug 2002, 01:17

Very Very pretty indeed.

Val 12 Aug 2002, 23:01

We are indeed in the wrong thread.

Verona never even tried to sing. (As long I remember)

JS 12 Aug 2002, 17:20

Anyone know of, or are willing to have a guess at spice girl victoria beckham's prescription from any pics they have seen? has anyoe seen pics of mandy moore wearing her spex anywhere. i hear she is pretty nearsighted.

watcher 12 Aug 2002, 07:20

Val- Well done! She really is pretty. Is she a musician at all? We may be in the wrong thread.

Val 12 Aug 2002, 05:19

A few pictures with Verona:

Not a very good resolution ...

Glowworm 11 Aug 2002, 12:11

Verona Feldbusch is a TV celeb from Germany known for her sex appeal rather than for a remarkable amount of intelligence.

watcher 11 Aug 2002, 07:29

GWGs- many pictures of the undeniably glamorous Ms Feldbusch at Rexfeatures but as to spectacles...good luck.

GwGs 11 Aug 2002, 05:20

Nope, never heard of her, who is she?

loulou 31 Jul 2002, 14:35

John Lennon-I always said he was the best because he was 'different' but do you know why really????? You've guessed it, coz of his specs and his faraway look when not wearing them. Same applies to Robbie Williams- never seen him in specs( apparently he's a CL wearer- would look even better in glasses methinks!!!

jsc2003 25 Jul 2002, 09:24

Doe anyone know what *NSYNC's JC Chasez's prescription is?

At Sea, you're a funny man! Which section should she be in "Looks good in glasses" - then they'd all be in there!

Why is Britney Spears in the "Musicians" category?

She's not a musician, as a matter of fact she's not even a good singer.

For that matter, she's not even a good lip syncher.

But she sure is pretty and sexy too. And she looks great in glasses

Lore 12 Jul 2002, 09:25


I don't know what Brittney's presciption is, but from the one pic that had a really good view of her glasses (, it looked to me like she is far-sighted. I'd guess she has a pretty low plus prescription, but I could be wrong.

She's a cutie with her glasses on and without a ton of make-up.

GwGs 12 Jul 2002, 03:39

Jim, If you look on my site - under the Musicians Menu and click on the Britney page there a couple of new ones there, I got them from:

Enjoy - GwGs

Filthy McNasty 11 Jul 2002, 22:05

I call her Anesthesia, because her music makes me go to sleep. Of course, if she cralwed into bed there beside me, I'm sure I'd be bolt upright in no time flat (Oooooh! A double entendre!).

SZ6 11 Jul 2002, 19:55

Yeah, Anastasia was absolutely attrocious. Easily the worst singing of the National Anthem I've ever heard. Grade-school kids do it, and they can remember the words. Apparently Anastasia is not quite on their level musically.

jim 11 Jul 2002, 17:02

anyone seen any pics or heard anything recently about britney and her glasses? i would love to know her prescription. does anyone think they are real or for show? if real,then can anyone have a realistic guess at her rx from pictures and info etc.

Portia 09 Jul 2002, 23:55

Anastacia sang the US national anthem at the beginning of the Baseball All-Stars Game in Milwaukee tonight.

She wore her famous glasses, but I was too distracted by her messing up the lyrics to study them while she was on-screen.

Andy 01 Jul 2002, 06:21


if you take a closer look at the link to this picture of Anastacia I posted, you'll notice that the left lens of her glasses is definetly thicker than the right one. Just look at the metal bridge that is holding her glasses together and you will notice that the left lens is thicker, you may also see some tiny rings on the border of this lens, barely visible cause of the orange tint of the lens.

GwGs 01 Jul 2002, 05:39

Hi Curt,

Sorry, no idea about that - it's the correct link, and the pic does work but i don't why it does that. Sorry!

Here is the link for the Britney page, if you scroll down, the pic is greenish, and she is wearing large "aviator" style spex which look great on her.

Curt 01 Jul 2002, 05:19

GwGs: There still seems to be a few bugs in your web page. That Brittany link launches about 6 windows (all ads)(even with pop-up killer active!) and then crashes my browser. Any ideas???

GwGs 29 Jun 2002, 08:43

Woops, forgot the link!!

RE: Britney - I wonder if she is talking about these glasses????, I think she looks really cute in them, I'm sure you all do too.

The picture is taken from my site (

The following is taken from the BBC Radio 1 website ( )

Britney goes dorky

Britney Spears reckons she has the perfect disguise to go shopping incognito. The singer admits she loves to hit her favourite clothes stores without an entourage, and says there's nothing better than sneaking out in public without being recognised.

How does the world's most famous pop star do it?

"I have some really dorky glasses that I wear - they're granny glasses. And I wear a big cap - every time I wear it nobody says anything. I shouldn't have just said that!"

Curt 28 Jun 2002, 13:51

Andy: Those look like sunglasses to me, not her usual prescription specs. She sometimes wears sunglasses, but more often her real glasses. I have seen some other shots on her web page of her wearing what are obviously sunglasses, which I think is the case in the picture you are referring to.

Andy 26 Jun 2002, 23:15

I think Anastacia's glasses aren't that strong as stated in earlier posts. Looking at this pic under,1658,184497,00.jpg

brings me also to say that her left lens is stronger than the right one. The "bite out as stated in earlier posts might also result in a astigmatic correction near the 90 degree plane

The Kid 24 Jun 2002, 23:19

We are probably looking at the same pic. I couldn't tell if they were real or fake, but it figures she would be wearing planos for show. She is still gorgeous either way.

Lazysiow 24 Jun 2002, 10:20

I've only been able to find one pic and I dont think they lenses were real. Can you scan some and post them?

The Kid 23 Jun 2002, 22:28

Avril Lavigne is hot, and she has pictures of her wearing glasses inside the CD cover.

 19 Jun 2002, 15:13

I'd heard that Anastacia had some serious vision problems, I'd go with the -4.75 for sure.

Guest 19 Jun 2002, 14:00

blubb, based on your link, I'd guess -4.75 or more.

blubb 19 Jun 2002, 13:49

Alan 19 Jun 2002, 09:55

Yeah, that makes it pretty clear. Nice detective work! At least -3, I'd say, maybe a little more.

Curt 19 Jun 2002, 08:15

For anyone who is still wondering if Anastacia's specs are real or sunglasses, check out this pic:

The cut-in on her face leads me to believe the she is moderately myopic, say -2 or -3 anyway.

Wurm 17 Jun 2002, 13:35

Anastacia was featured today on the Lycos 50, including this rundown of activities associated with her current assault on US music markets:

"Anastacia was on Regis and Kelly last Friday and will show up on The View and The Tonight Show in the next two weeks, before singing the national anthem at the baseball All-Star Game July 9. Basically, she'll be unavoidable."

I asked the same question bout jc awhile ago and no one ever answered me! But i found out somewhere else. I heard he is nearsighted. Someone was telling me that they were standing behind him and u could see through his glasses and quote as they said it "The boy is blind!"

Jenna Lee 30 May 2002, 13:42

Hey, I have a question. JC from *NSYNC has been wearing glasses a lot lately, and I know you guys are good at figuring out the prescription of glasses, so I was wondering what his is? Here are a couple pics:

Hey Glasses Luva,

I've got a couple pics of Mandy wearing heavy framed black spex, but my site is down @ the moment - will notify you when it's back up.

GwGs -

speco 22 May 2002, 22:45


Are there any pics of Mandy wearing glasses in this site? I could not find!!

glassez luva 22 May 2002, 20:53


Great work. Does anybody have any more pics of Mandy.

mg 22 May 2002, 06:06

Mandy Moore does wear prescription glasses. This is from "101 random facts about Mandy" on her web site,

05. Mandy wears contacts. She is a spokeswomen for Acuvue contacts!

76. Mandy had to start wearing glasses until 8th grade.

80. Although Mandy wears contact most of the time, she still wears her glasses on flights.

Leon 22 May 2002, 03:33

Hearty, do you know this band Wilco? They have a song called Heavy Metal Drummer. I'll post the lyrics for you...

Wilco - Heavy Metal Drummer

I sincerely miss those heavy metal bands

I used to go see on the landing in the summer

She fell in love with the drummer

She fell in love with the drummer

She fell in love

Shiny shiny pants and bleached blonde hair

A double kick drum by the river in the summer

She fell in love with the drummer

Another and another

She fell in love

I miss the innocence I've known

Playing Kiss covers beautiful and stoned

She lifted up her shirt at the battle of the bands

He twirled his sticks, she helped him to his van

She fell in love with the drummer

She fell in love with the drummer

She fell in love

I miss the innocence I've known

Playing Kiss covers beautiful and stoned

Hearty 19 May 2002, 14:33

Has anyone see Randy Newman on that Bravo preview? He has cut-in and a half! Which makes me wonder, is there anyone in the public eye who does GOC, we'd never know!


Val 15 May 2002, 21:32

glasses luva, I don't know if the glasses are prescription, I only hope that they are.

glasses luva 15 May 2002, 17:28

Val D

Do you know if those glasses on Mandy Moore are prescription. It does not surprise me, to see her in specs. It seem that many people with wide set eyes such as Mandy wear glasses. Does anybody know about any correlation between wide set eyes and poor eyesite? I find women with wide set eyes like Michelle Pfiefer and Mandy Moore very pretty.

StopPretendingYouDon'tWantMe 15 May 2002, 17:12

Thanks Pippi! He's a cutie too! BTW, I also love classical AND jazz...jazz musicians who wear glasses are very seductive to me, maybe it's the whole package, lifestyle, music, etc.


Daffy 06 May 2002, 23:02

Fortunately for me, and unfortunate news for you lot, contacts do the best job in playing the piano/keyboard. I can't handle the glasses whilst playing live.

JC 06 May 2002, 21:46

Tommy -

Sorry, I meant to say that it is difficult to see the notes *without* my -3's. I definitely keep my prescription up to date.


ehpc 06 May 2002, 13:31

Incidentally, I memorise EVERYTHING I perform............and one should ALWAYS look at the keys!

ehpc 06 May 2002, 13:29

As the most enthusiastically heterosexual person imaginable, my interest is SOLELY in women wearing glasses,which I like very much,especially my adorable Wendy.I have no interest in glasses other than when they are worn by women I find attractive.

One facet of wearing glasses whilst playing the piano.................I at least find it essential to have large frames(which I happen to like) so that one can get the whole keyboard in one's field of vision without turning one's head or body.This is particularly essential in modern works which may make more use of the extremities of the keyboard.

Devon 06 May 2002, 12:01

Is Tommy the moderator of every thread on this bulletin board?

Tommy 06 May 2002, 11:28

JC, (and Dan)

I shall not forget about the "watching of the keys when playing piano". Thanks for the nudge.

Now, about your -3 Rx and trouble reading the music. Suggest you try a

-3.25 or -3.50. Do you know anyone with an Rx a little stronger than yours and you could try their glasses? Your eye Dr. is another source.

Assume you are talking about SV, no bifocal. If you are into bifocals that't a different matter.

A good person to comment on this is Dan so I have included his name at top. I have mentioned his expertise before.

After all, notes are not meant to be missed.


JC 06 May 2002, 11:00

Tommy -

I play the piano, and with my -3's, I have to lean in too close and can't play comfortably. You have to be able to see a bunch of little dots going by quickly and react without thinking; there's no time to study that fuzzy one over there to decide if it is a D or E.

As far as looking at the keys when playing, Ray Charles could answer that one for you.


Tommy 04 May 2002, 10:34


Peter, regarding Peter Serkin, I meant to say "his large rimless frames, popular at the time, with thick lenses". My post made it seem like thick lenses were popular at the time. For a lot of folks they were not popular and never will be. However, I now know, from reading many postings, that some really like and want thick lenses.


Pippi 04 May 2002, 10:01

Hearty: re Linkin Park, I believe the guy seated with specs is called Joe Hahn.

Tommy 04 May 2002, 09:59

Dominic, thanks for your comments and info. on myopic classical pianists. Have you seen any photos of Peter Serkin where one could estimate the high (I think) minus Rx?

How would this guy Stephen Kovacevich see the sheet music with even a moderate minus w/o glasses? Unless he does concerts w/o sheet music, which of course is often done. What about seeing the keys? I do not play piano so not sure if one is supposed to look at the keys.

Does anyone know at what minus Rx one could see piano sheet music without glasses? Perhaps a -2 or -3? I am

-5.25 R and -6.25 L and without glasses I can see the computer screen at about 10 - 12 inches, which I just did for a trial, always use my computer glasses or regular progressives. Of course that does not compare to reading notes on sheet music from piano bench to the sheet music holder.

Thanks for email address, will write separately. Want to share above.


PS Glad to see another classical face in Musicians thread. BTW what is your Rx?

dominic 04 May 2002, 05:21

There are lots of myopic classical pianists — Alfred Brendel must be about -6, and someone told me the cute young British pianist Freddy Kempf is very short-sighted w/o contact lenses. Ivo Pogorelich, who was sooo beautiful when he was young, has always worn contacts in his pics. Stephen Kovacevich wears pretty strong minus bifocal glasses off the platform, but not for playing. Tommy, my email's [removed by request] if you want to chat more.

Tommy 03 May 2002, 17:49

Peter, sorry I transposed.

Tommy 03 May 2002, 17:48

EPCH Peter,

Thanks for responding. I think you were the only classical oriented posting on the musicians thread so I posted you separately.

I sat close to Peter Serkin at a lunch counter many years ago. Of course he was much younger then and very good looking, as he still is. My attraction was his large, popular at the time, very thick lenses. (Thin lenses probably not yet available.) I could not keep my eyes off him and should have started a conversation but much shyer in those years. Today,looked at his CD covers on a website but only 1 with him and included Claudia Frank (I think). Enlarged it and not a good shot, especially for the glasses. Will continue to pursue and post accordingly.

Do you have interest in Guys in Glasses? Have seen a posting from you here and there but not sure if there or in the Rx Posting thread? Is your Rx in that thread? Let me know. I am moderate minus and can provide details if interested. Also I am familiar with computer glasses which would probably be good for reading piano music as well.


ehpc 03 May 2002, 15:15

Tommy-I read your post on Rudolph Serkin and Peter Serkin.Rudolph Serkin's work I know very well and he was an absolutely superlative perfomer-in my view one of the greatest pianists ever.I am not so familiar with Peter Serkin's work,although he is phenomenally busy,especially in the USA.I can't enlighten you on any non-musical aspects of their lives,however:)Sorry! Peter

PS! 03 May 2002, 14:56

I forgot to mention, there's a pic of Chester i think (didnt look too long) making a nasty gesture, which I find immature, so if that bothers you don't go in...but I feel the larger pic below that is worth it!

Hearty ~

Hearty 03 May 2002, 11:02

Not to drive Chester ~ & Linkin Park into th ground here, but I found a great pic where the whole friggin' half of the band is in specs! Some great frames on the guy seated (anyone know his name?)It can be found on this aol homepage:

Oh those BOYZ!!! (those bad boys who don't always wear their specs...though Chester does, more n more!)

Hearty ~

ps...isn't it toooo cute how they can't see that well??

Tommy 02 May 2002, 16:52


Noticed from an old posting that you are a classical concert pianist. Would like you to read my posting of May 2 on Peter Serkin. Would like your thoughts on this. Thanks,


Tommy 02 May 2002, 13:12

Saw Peter Serkin many years ago with quite thick minus lenses, rimless medium size, probably in the -8 to -10 range. He is a concert pianist as was his father Rudolph Serkin who had very small, very powerful minus glasses also, no idea of Rx. Rudolph is now deceased. More recently Peter is wearing a much thinner lens and contemporary frames, but I am sure same or stronger Rx, probably bifocal. Can anyone comment on this? Any ideas on Peter's Rx? I believe he has performed in Philadelphia recently.

MinusDude 28 Apr 2002, 20:01

'NSYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick wears lower minus glasses & is quite open ahout it. For a while he was quite taken with a pair of mod sunglasses (similar to those worn by Bono of U2). He had his eye doctor replace the lenses with prescription lenses, he & the boys once reported in a fashion discussion on MTV. Chris has worn more traditional (oval) glasses to awards shows & wears them in an early exterior scene in the music video "Drive Myself Crazy."

LanceBassInSpace 28 Apr 2002, 09:06

GWGS: Can you pls update your Britney page with her most recent photos if any.Does'nt she wear glasses anymore??

GwGs 26 Apr 2002, 05:20

Nearly forgot to post this!!

Holly Valance - Felicity in Neighbours was on Kiss 100FM this morning, and Bam Bam made the following remark on her glasses - "Nice glasses Holly, are you going for the intellectual look", he said something else about them but I can't remember what.

She has never worn them before so I quite suprised, have to keep a look out for her.

speco 26 Apr 2002, 00:48

Does anyone know whether Britney wears contacts when she is not wearing glasses. Sometimes I wonder she wears glasses for fashion only. She has also said she wears glasses to disguise when she is in public places. Does anyone really know what her exact problem with her eesight if any? Who is her optician?Its really good to see her wearing those glasses!!

Hearty 22 Apr 2002, 22:31

A...achem...real musician has passed. I wrote a small tribute & added a compelling pic of Layne Staley to bottom of my Mike Ward page.... I don't care whether he wore glasses or not, he inspired so many that came after him....he was THE VOICE!

Dordeial 18 Apr 2002, 19:14

Did anyone see Britney with her glasses? She wore them down her nose and looked over the top. What's that about?

Rudeman 18 Apr 2002, 07:20

Too bad Britney has a very low minus.

She is a very beautiful young lady and would look even prettier with some great -3 glasses.

I would even be satisfied if she wore her -0.5 glasses more often, preferrably full time

Ulinda 18 Apr 2002, 07:08

Oh, I made a mistake. That was MY prescription. Brittany's is R: -.25 L: -.50.


Socksandglasses 17 Apr 2002, 16:18

I hate to sound in any way negative, but I feel like I must make a comment. If Brittany Spear's precription is more than -.75, I'll kiss my own butt. In all the pictures that have ever shown up on any glasses web site, there is no evidence of minification or concentric rings no matter what the angle of the photograph. I, just like the rest of you, would love for her prescription to be -6 or -9 or whatever, but when my prescription was -2.5 you could tell just by looking at me. I find that many of us are overly optimistic when estimating prescriptions, sometimes apparently even doubling them, especially of celebrities whose pictures appear in publications that we all see. So my guess is to check the source of the Brittany -2.5 prescription. I don't buy it.

glassez luva 16 Apr 2002, 17:03


As much is said on this site about Brittney Spears, I still was not sure if the specs she often sports were prescription, or just for looks. If they are indeed real, I hope she never opts for LASIK.

 15 Apr 2002, 19:17

i have a pic of kylie but i don't have a scanner. eway i think its a very low minus Rx. Ulinda, do yu have ne pics of britanys new spex? how did you find out he Rx?

Ulinda 15 Apr 2002, 16:54

Britanny Speer's script is R: -2.25; L -2.50.

me 15 Apr 2002, 14:51

Does anyone have any idea of Britney Spears prescription? Whatever it is, I think her eyes have got worse over the few years she has been in the public eye as she seems to wear her glasses more often and for longer periods than she used to.

Also, I've heard that Kylie Minogue is a part time glasses wearer. Does anyone know what sort of prescription she has and is there any photos of her in specs?

JC2002 07 Apr 2002, 13:29

Hey does ne1 know if JC Chasez from *NSYNC wears glasses i have seen pics of him wearing them lately and they look real.

HeartOfGlass 05 Apr 2002, 18:50


I have a new pic of lovely Chester Bennington up on my Mike Ward page...I had to resize it, and I seem to have diminished his cut-in just a bit, but you can still see some of it.

My niece recently saw Linkin Park in concert, and I asked if he wore his glasses...she grinned a big grin and said, yup! He like to see his fans!!

BTW...I have always been very photophobic...I remember being appalled as a five yr old, when being unable to keep my pale blue eyes open for a photo session (with big spotlights yet!) the woman photographer said, "Oh, she will need glasses, I was the same way, and I had to get them." She was a very artsy woman for the times, smooth, medium length blonde hair and black modified cats. I was terrified however, I had not yet....turned....

Sorry, I read my post and just went owie with the spelling.


Alissa 19 Mar 2002, 08:32

I looooooove Lisa Loeb, more the music though. I just thought it was cool that she was brave enough to fight the system and go with those big frames, unlike others such as Brittney Spears (not that I would listen to her either way, lol)



p.s. Now no questions about anything besides the topic y'all, lol (sorry, feelling a little sarcastic this morning).

Rudeman 19 Mar 2002, 03:42

I guess I should have read further back in the posts.

Actually I am a huge fan of Lisa Loeb.

She is one hot GWG singer.

Alissa 18 Mar 2002, 15:36

Sorry rudeman. I was voicing my opinion about that I couldn't believe that Lisa Loeb ditched her cat eye frames and was asked a few questions that did quite go with the topic.


Wurm 18 Mar 2002, 15:26


Alissa's post was part of a discussion about Lisa Loeb. As sometimes happens, the conversation drifted a bit.

Rudeman 18 Mar 2002, 14:52


Why are you posting under this topic?

This topic is for discussing musicians with glasses.

Alissa 18 Mar 2002, 10:32

I wear my glasses every three days, when my contacts begin to bother me. I own three pairs currently, one current and two outdated pairs which i wear to the beach and other events so if they get broke, it won't matter much.


Me 16 Mar 2002, 21:29


How long have you worn glasses and do you wear them full time? How many pairs have you got?

No thanks needed Alissa!They are gorgeous!

Love Pete

alissa 15 Mar 2002, 08:20

why thank you Peter.



ehpc 15 Mar 2002, 07:12

Hi Alissa

Your glasses pictures are lovely!Thank you!


Alissa 14 Mar 2002, 15:19

Curt-Say it isn't so. I loved the retro frames that she had. It was like one strong voice saying "wearing glasses are cool". Of course we knew that already. I want to think that her fashion sense helped the fashion world over all making retro stuff cool again.

Okay, I know I'm being just a bit verbal on just that, but it just means that she won't stand out anymore.


Filthy McNasty 13 Mar 2002, 20:26

The above picture leads me to guess that they're planos. Bugger all for Rx. All for show. Pure window dressing. A sham. Optical poserism. -0.0 O.U. He's emmetropic. Neither near- nor farsighted.

Did I miss any?

Carin 13 Mar 2002, 17:07

Hey, I was wondering if someone could tell me what kind of glasses JC and Chris from NSYNC are wearing, and how strong they are. Here are some pics.



GwGs 11 Mar 2002, 09:31

I've also noticed that Lisa is starting to wear different glasses!!!

I uploaded a new Lisa Loeb page to my site which contained some TV caps of her wearing square rimless glasses!

A big pointer that she is trying to get away from her famous cateye look is that on the cover on her new album she is wearing black rimmes glasses.

What a shame, bring back the heavy frames Lisa.

Curt 11 Mar 2002, 08:07

It appears that Lisa Loeb is moving away from her trademark brown plastic cateyes and on to some gold metal frames. Saw here recently on TV, and found a couple pix on her web page:

Look in the Feb. 2002 photo archive. Still cute as hell...

Nelly is gorgeous with those glasses. Do you have more pictures of her?????

Rudeman 27 Feb 2002, 03:51

Nelly is such a babe with those glasses on.

Pat 26 Feb 2002, 18:32

Nelly Furtado (canadian singer)

I spoke before about of a very pretty Hispanic girl who had blue eyes, which is rare for Hispanics. In high school who wore strong plus glasses and later got contacts. She had to wear non Rx sunglasses with them for a long time. She had to show a doctor's note to the school to be allowed to wear them in side the school building.

Wurm 25 Feb 2002, 14:30

Sure, photosensitivity is not terribly rare.

I don't know if tinted contacts would help it... the technology that commonly tints ones eyes to another color doesn't significantly filter the brightness of light, to my knowledge. Maybe some other type of tinted contacts would work though.

spexalot 25 Feb 2002, 14:29

Tinted contacts ARE NO substitute for sunglasses. Any optom will tell you that.

When I was in second grade there was this girl who had to wear yellow tinted lenses in her glasses which had a slight minus Rx. Some of us would tease her for wearing sunglasses in doors. She had this awful squeeky voice and would get so mad at us and she would get all red in the face and then yell "the're not sunglasses"!

spexalot 25 Feb 2002, 14:22

I think its true. Roy Oberson had the same problem

Julian 25 Feb 2002, 12:56

Even tinted contacts?

GwGs 25 Feb 2002, 11:20

r u serious? Is that really an affliction or r u having a laugh?

If you're not then she picked the wrong industry to go into she is affected by people taking photos.

spexalot 25 Feb 2002, 11:08

I heard she suffers from photophobia and must wear tinted lenses. Its why contacts are out for her too.

GwGs 25 Feb 2002, 05:58

I dont think that much of Anastacia 'cos she NEVER wears glasses with clear lenses, they are always tinted.

If she likes wearing glasses so much - which I think she does - why doesn't she wear them with clear lenses instead of trying to make them look like their sunglasses.

Those pics on Yahoo don't work as well!

Socksandglasses 25 Feb 2002, 00:43

I just saw a billboard ad for a local country music radio station with a huge picture of the Dixie Chicks and the little plump one was wearing great plastic almond shaped glasses. Does anyone have pictures of her wearing her glasses? She's really cute!

spexalot 24 Feb 2002, 11:22

Fiona Apple looks sooooooo much better in her glasses

Clare 06 Feb 2002, 12:16

I admire Anastacia hugely for making glasses fashionable, and from what I read she actually needs them too. (Not convinced that Britney, Jennifer Aniston do, just cosmetic wearers?). I guess with all that hair, she's quite sexy too? Well done Anastacia, another barrier broken down ...!

Wurm 06 Feb 2002, 10:36

Proudly bespectacled pop star Anastacia in a photo from an awards show in Germany:

and on a German game show (those pretty frames with rimless lenses make me swoon):

note: Yahoo photos expire after awhile

Leon 15 Jan 2002, 09:37

Hmmm, that's for a direct link.

Leon 15 Jan 2002, 09:36

Completely off-topic: I just posted five new songs from our forthcoming album on my band's website:

If you like alt. country or Americana (think Jayhawks/Son Volt/Uncle Tupelo/Wilco/Ryan Adams), go check them out.

Dave 31 Dec 2001, 19:30

One more for Jennifer Warnes:

Wurm 31 Dec 2001, 10:08

Here are a couple more Jennifer Warnes photos while we wait for the scrapbook:

Dave 31 Dec 2001, 09:43

Here are a couple of links to Jennifer Warnes. I noticed once that she wore glasses on one of her album covers.

Figaro 31 Dec 2001, 07:34

The Emily in question is in fact a Canadian composer called Emily Doolittle who is enjoying quite a bit of success at the moment and just finishing postgraduate studies at Princeton. She was composer in residence at the 2001 Nova Scotia Festival, which is where the pic. originated. There's a less good photo of her on the ASCAP website and a couple of nice ones on Radio Canada. I think she looks wonderful.

Oscar 31 Dec 2001, 07:06

I agree with you, Bassethorn. Here's another musician (I think), called Emily, who has quite a strong minus prescription in her glasses.

Bassethorn 31 Dec 2001, 02:12

It's probably obvious, but the Google search engine in my previous post means, of course, the Google image search engine.

Bassethorn 31 Dec 2001, 02:03

I haven't posted before, so I just chose the nickname. I have actually had the opportunity to play a very fine Selmer basset horn (as you know, it's an alto clarinet in F - Mozart wrote some beautiful chamber music for it). Anyhow, that has nothing to do with my post. I don't have a URL for this one, but type the name Brozkova into the Google search engine and you will get seven pictures. Two of them will be images of oboist Jana Brozkova. If her playing is as beautiful as her GWG image, then it must be sheer heaven. 29 Dec 2001, 02:58

Loads of musicians on my site, go to and look under the Musicians menu

spexalot 22 Dec 2001, 06:43

Singer Willa Ford wears glasses. See her in specks at Then click misc. pictures link

Michel Delving 14 Dec 2001, 07:12

Lucky you.

I think Sheryl is so hot now that she has let her hair grow back out.

And she would definitely be much hotter in glasses

Let me know if you find a pic

MM 14 Dec 2001, 04:43

Actually, Sheryl Crow wears contacts. I've seem some close up pictures of her where they are visible. She appears to wear RGP lenses. I've also seen a picture of her performing in glasses.

Michel Delving 03 Dec 2001, 04:26

Too bad Sheryl Crow or Jewel don't wear glasses.

I love them both

Hearty 02 Dec 2001, 15:01

What are the English people talking about?? =o

Wurm 01 Dec 2001, 10:00

Rupert Holmes even had a song called Nearsighted, if I recall correctly.

Robert 01 Dec 2001, 08:29

Remember Rupert Holmes? He did the pina colada song and had a heavy minus RX. He even wore glasses on his album covers from the 70's or early 80's.

Julian 30 Nov 2001, 10:10

Or even (like Flanders and Swann):

Pee, po, belly, bum, drawers!

Myhopeinhere 30 Nov 2001, 09:47

I do,

ploppy, poo and bugger!!

(said in a Yorkshire accent!)

Christy 30 Nov 2001, 09:05

Wurm - yeah I remember reading something about Anastacia and Elton John not so long ago. Anastacia was saying that Elton John made glasses-wearing really cool - so she was able to enjoy full-time wear no problem. I remember lots of other trivial stuff from wherever I was reading it - such as Anastacia liking the way the English swear - only she doesn't have the accent to do it properly!

Hearty 25 Nov 2001, 16:19

re: INXS, Wow!! How nice to see a 'saxy' promo photo like that, with specs ON! 8)

Hearty 25 Nov 2001, 16:15

Weezer, that's the band....their videos are a must-see for OO's. Cute!

Filthy McNasty 25 Nov 2001, 16:14

Kirk Pengilly of INXS - fairly hefty plus Rx.

Hearty 25 Nov 2001, 14:41

For me it's Mike Ward, hands down. Wish I knew his RX....

Then Chester from Linkin Park who cannot see the front row when he performs...he's on that page as well.

Ex-Metallica bassist, Jason....

What is that newish group someone spoke, islands...cute spex video, I'll find out!

Then there is one astigmatic drummer, but I won't divulge his name cause he is mine! 8))

ehpc 25 Nov 2001, 08:29

Glad the topic of musicians has come I have posted before I am a classical concert pianist....I happened to notice on some old posts ages ago there seemed to be a lot of discussion about classical music at one stage.People going off to see Wagner and so on.Rather a shame (I think!) that this topic seems to have disappeared.

Filthy McNasty 24 Nov 2001, 20:00

Elvis Costello: "I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused."

Julian 24 Nov 2001, 13:53

And of course Cliff Richard whom nobody here ever seems to think of - he is quite myopic.

Love and kisses, Jules.

Wurm 24 Nov 2001, 13:40

This has been a popular topic in the past.

On the female side you have Nana Mouskouri (sp?), Lisa Loeb and Anastacia.

Guys I don't know as well, but there are all those 'emo' guys and Buddy Holly. Not to mention Elton John, who Anastacia actually cites as her eyewear inspiration! It's true! I also came across a site the other day with a lot of information on Elvis' specs. I think the guy was actually Elvis' optician.
