Thanks Greg for highlighting the outstanding segments...I had a lot of trouble uploading to the site last nite for some strange reason....


GreginColo 19 Dec 2014, 21:30

Thanks Tivo for the post(s); the thread had been kind of dormant lately so thanks for waking it back up. As you said some nice closeups of JT. A nice closeup around 6:57; some really nice moments around 7:30 when he turns his head and you can really see the reflection and curve of his super strong lenses, and then around 8:10 to 8:20 when he starts without glasses and then puts them on; no doubt he knew exactly where they were. I haven't followed the whole series so don't know or understand all of the characters or storyline, but definitely worth a look for any Jon Tyler fans. Thanks again Tivo.

Thanks James for mentioning that, some women mentioned that on a cyber forum about him and got severely criticized for playing doctor, but I have noticed things like that due to my fascination for strong eye ware......so I will try at least to bring it to his attention although I suspect it already has been thanks to that women's acute observation.......he's a wonderful guy in many ways, reminds me of the out going ness of Jon Tyler and thyago Olivera from Brazil...... I have wished so many times that victor and John both, there in tampa, had not been so stand offish and hard to really get to know....seems like that they have both suffered some severe rejection, maybe due to wearing such strong eyeglasses....tried to let john know that I really dug his looks, but he was too introverted to ever bond on any level with anyone, other than a questionable wife he had whom he claimed had passed away a couple of years ago......victor is just plain schizo on top of it all......maybe too much Cuban coffee.........anyway that's all there is to report here in mexico....no exciting myopic men here in la manz........., jalisco..


James 03 Dec 2014, 06:32

Thanks to Tivo for all the videos of the basketball player. I wonder if he has been tested for Marfan's Syndrome, as he seems to exhibit the classic symptoms, including excessive height, overly long and tapering limbs even for that height, and of course the big one, eye "problems".

If he has it, I hope he has been tested and is treated for it, as it can lead to fatal heart complications if it goes unchecked.

a new video featuring elhadji tacko fall and his new sports frames and super thick lenses....this boy has some high script and apparently sees very well, well enough to play a good game, and he's very mellow and good hearted, check him out on facebook under 'tacko fall' and here's the link to the new video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roJCrVgnzqk


JP 01 Dec 2014, 15:10

Thanks Mark One for Jack and Finn. I love the guy with the minus lenses and the split temple. It's teasing not to know whether or not they're for real!

Mark One 26 Nov 2014, 01:34

Jules, there seem to be fewer shots of Finn wearing glasses than Jack. But I did find that cooking video I mentioned before. There's a silly promo thing at the beginning where both have on glasses. The pair Jack wears definitely are the host's. I am guessing Finn has on his pair from that time period.

GreginColo 25 Nov 2014, 20:54

Another Matt Adler video, in the opening frames showing the thickness and power of his lenses. Credit for this also to marco-o-men for finding this for us to enjoy, especially those first couple frames of the video.

GreginColo 25 Nov 2014, 20:08

From our friend marco-o-men comes this great video of quite handsome, quite talented and quite myopic musician Matt Adler. Enjoy!

Julian 25 Nov 2014, 07:37

Mark One: thanks for drawing my attention to Jack's new Harry Potter glasses (as Finn calls them). As you say, they're unquestionably plus. I find myself wondering whether he's wearing them full time, and what Finn's Rx is. I'm a low hyperope myself and I couldn't conceivably see anything through the minus glasses he was wearing in that picture which you say were borrowed...I know identical twins don't necessarily have identical eyesight, but is it likely to be fairly similar?


Mark One 25 Nov 2014, 00:12

Jules, the only shot I've seen of them both in glasses at the same time was on the set of some cooking show from a couple of years ago. The wire frames were borrowed from the show's very myopic host unfortunately.

Coincidentally they posted a YouTube video on November 24 featuring Jack in a new pair of glasses. Finn even makes a comment. Unquestionably plus prescription.


Julian 24 Nov 2014, 05:09

Mark One: they're well worth watching! I'm interested you reckon their glasses are plus. It's really difficult to get any idea of their Rx from the Pics I've seen; but I wondered if the one with the wire frames (is that Finn?) showed a hint of minification. Then again, neither of them seems to be anything like full time in glasses, though one (Jack?) is sometimes seen wearing them out in the street. I'd be interested to know what anyone else thinks.


Julian 24 Nov 2014, 05:09

Mark One 23 Nov 2014, 19:18

Julian, I have to confess that I've been watching Jack and Finn for a bit now. Quite big on YouTube. Their glasses, which don't show up in many photos, seem to be of the plus variety.

In case you're having trouble with that link, I accidentally added a period to the end.

tinyeyes 23 Nov 2014, 09:26

I'm glad you found this forum, Gregg! Many of us are higher myopes (I'm around -8) or fans of same. If you want to chat more I'm at tinyeyes2@hotmail.com. Also you might enjoy following my blog at http://guyswiththickglasses.tumblr.com.


GreginColo 22 Nov 2014, 20:56

Hi Gregg, thanks for sharing more of your visual situation with us; that does sound like a challenge to deal with the mismatched vision and having to adjust by using contacts as well as glasses. Look forward to chatting some more when convenient for you and please be aware that there are guys who would like to get to know you more, even if just by email. Regards, Greg.


gregg 22 Nov 2014, 15:53

Greg and Jamie,

Thanks guys. I really appreciated your comments. My daily relief from the pictures is lonely and one way, to get a response is awesome.

My Rx is unusual as my eyes are mismatched. My right eye is -11.5 worse than my left.For short periods in the morning and evenings I wear just spex but my vision is not the same in both eyes. During the day I wear a contact lens to balance out the Rxs. Most days I wear a minus cls in the right and then spex on top. I have had cornea problems so alternatively I wear a plus cls in the left to increase its Rx to the same as the right. My weakest glasses are -22 both eyes, the other pair much stronger. Both sets are myos. I need glasses to correct astig and a severe squint.

I will email when I get home next week. It would be really fantastic to be in touch with similar minded guys.


Julian 22 Nov 2014, 08:54

I've just become aware of a very handsome pair of young guys, Jack & Finn Harries, 21-year-old identical twins from London, who chronicled their gap year on Facebook and built up a huge fan base, They both seem to have glasses which one or the other is wearing in some of the pics (I don't know which of them is which). There is one shot where they're both wearing black framed glasses - one black wire and the other black plastic - and great beaming smiles.


Jamie37 22 Nov 2014, 06:34

Gregg,

You sound really cute in your rx, hopefully find someone who like your glasses and you


GreginColo 21 Nov 2014, 22:08

Thanks Gregg for your post; yes there are a number of us who enjoy spotting guys with the reflection of strong myopic lenses and would no doubt love to see you in your glasses. If you ever want to chat some more I am gbruny@hotmail.com.

I also had a recent sighting while paying for a purchase at a drugstore, I put my items on the counter turned around and there was a middle age guy in small round metal frames with flat fronted strong myopic lenses, the edges were fairly thick for such small lenses so I would guess at least -10. He is probably a guy I wouldn't have noticed too much without his glasses, but with those glasses, he quickly caught my attention. He had a really friendly smile and his tiny eyes seemed to smile also. We chatted small talk for a minute while my purchase was finalized. I walked slowly out the door hoping he would follow so we could chat a bit more, but he headed toward another door, so no more followup, but the memories of that sighting were useful later in the day.

The Thursday evening hour long episode of "House Hunters" on HGTV was also good. A gay couple, Robert and Nathan, were house hunting in the LA area. They viewed some houses, purchased one and then embarked on a remodel. Throughout this 3 or 4 month process there were various photos of the two guys with glasses and without, about 50/50. The taller of the the two was pretty myopic, looked flat front, and great looking both with his glasses and without. The shorter was also very handsome but his glasses appeared to have a pretty weal Rx, either a very weak minus or possibly even a weak plus. The guys were probably in their 30's. It was a fun segment to watch. Regards, (also) Greg.


gregg 21 Nov 2014, 07:56

tinyeyes and James, great to hear your accounts of sightings. Agreed the photos on the blogs accessible from this site are fantastic and I use them very often. But a real sighting would be better.

I am single,in my early 30s and very shortsighted, a myos wearer. I have yet to meet a guy who loves my tiny eyes. Strangely I do like the look of them and I am always on the look out for the telltale glint of light..


tinyeyes 17 Nov 2014, 21:03

James, thanks for the nice account of your sighting. I know what you mean about how picture-focused everything is now, but it's still nice to read about a real live sighting like this. I know how exciting and wonderful it can be! I don't have many sightings like that to share these days, but I think it's good to do so...


GreginColo 17 Nov 2014, 20:21

Sitting here watching tv while on the computer, and on comes a nice interview with myopic actor Bob Sagett, wearing some fairly strong lenses in plastics frames. Some nice closeups of Bob in his glasses. This is (was) on the Lawrence O'Donnell show on MSNBC.


GreginColo 17 Nov 2014, 20:06

Ooops, forgot to mention you you need to click on the "Behind the Scenes" tab to view the afore-mentioned pics of Jon Tyler.


GreginColo 17 Nov 2014, 20:02

I echo the thanks James for sharing your nice sighting. Those are always nice to hear about.

The attached link shows some behind the scenes out-takes from Paradise University, featuring super myopic super hunk actor Jon Tyler. There are some nice shots of him at the end of the tape starting around minute 11. Although brief, there are some nice shots of him pulling down his high (-27 or so) specs and looking over top of them, though likely not seeing much. There are some other nice shots that follow that.

JP 17 Nov 2014, 16:47

That's beautiful, James.


James 17 Nov 2014, 02:26

Had a nice sighting this morning crossing (jaywalking across, if I'm being honest) a busy road and weaving my way through gridlocked traffic. Out of the corner of my eye I saw something glinting in the sunlight. I turned to look what it was, and to my good fortune, it was a gloriously thick pair of flat fronted glasses - rather large rectangular tortoise shell frames, to be exact - sitting on the face of a cute young guy with dirty blonde wavy hair. I'm sure the lenses had a UV coating of some kind, but he was facing directly into the sun and seemed to be struggling without sunglasses (this is South Africa in summer, after all). His already tiny eyes were squinting in rather a pronounced way.

Reading that back, this kind of description now strikes me as a bit flat in the post-Tumblr world, but I'm posting it anyway as I still enjoy reading others' sightings here.


Cactus Jack 16 Nov 2014, 14:31

I believe the very strong PLUS glasses may belong to the young asian man. It appears that his left eye is turned inward, but it is extremely hard to tell for sure. It is very likely that a person who has that much hyperopia will also experience some Esophoria or Esotropia because of the focusing effort necessary to overcome the hyperopia without his glasses.

I also thought I saw a hint of an Ultex bifocal as he moved the glasses. It is possible that he may have had some birth defects caused by a disease such as Rubella during gestation. It is famous for seriously affecting eye development resulting in very significant hyperopia.

He also exhibited at least one other pair of very high plus glasses.

C.


GreginColo 15 Nov 2014, 22:21

Thanks Brandon, those are some super strong plus glasses. Assuming they are his, that is quite unusual to see a younger Asian guy with strong plus correction; much more often it's a high, and sometimes quite high, minus correction.

I know how you felt, I'll never forget the day I spotted john from tampa, with those huge frames and shiny mayo discs, I almost came in my pants and my heart was beating like mad, don't ever recollect seeing anyone with such powerful looking glasses, maybe one guy back in the village in the sixties.......Elijah and junior came next , particularly Elijah with his uneven script, and oh yes victor and his mysterious ways, and god bless tony, now there's a chunk of myopic ice cube lenses , there was that sighting in Mexico City, but I let him slip thru my fingers.....oh we'll thanks for reminding me what a joy my addiction has been......even went to sex love addicts anonymous, only to find after years 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'.......cheers from mexico.......


Jamie37 11 Nov 2014, 09:53

Oh what an amazing sighting of your big myope, be so cute to see him wearing bifocals


JP 10 Nov 2014, 15:30

He sounds great, Nick! Wish I'd been there. No, wish that had been me!

A less hot but enjoyable sighting ahead of me at a pedestrian crossing yesterday. A guy in his thirties, -3 or so left, clearly plus on the right. Always catches my interest when they've got both. I'd like to know how comfortably he sees.


Nick 10 Nov 2014, 14:28

Had a great experience on the bus today. I was sitting minding my own business when a really hot myopic guy sits in front of me. He looked at least -10, you could see the power rings at every angle and the glasses were very thick. He couldn't have been much more than 35 but he took out his phone and I noticed he took off his glasses, the font on his screen was massive and he had it so close to his face. I felt like telling him, it must be bifocal time!! Is it normal for some people to need bifocals before they hit 40

Thanks tinyeyes, nice post to see -20 guy and his glasses before his ICL surgery.


GreginColo 08 Nov 2014, 15:49

Perhaps this video should have posted under the "Vision" thread, which has in the past addressed issues and concerns regarding childrens' vision, as opposed to the Guys in Glasses thread, which tends to be more adult oriented. So the concern might be more the placement of the video than the content. Just my 2 cents anyway.


Brian Webber 08 Nov 2014, 15:43

Specs4ever

It is not the video which is the problem but the siting of the links to the video.

"Guys in Glasses" is often a fetish based adult male area and this video link is in the wrong place. By sandwiching the link between other explicit links sends out the wrong message to anyone reading the postings.


tinyeyes 08 Nov 2014, 15:38

Guy with -19/-20 diopter vision gets ICL surgery; see him in his glasses at 1:18.

Specs4ever 08 Nov 2014, 15:37

In my estimation this video is an informative video, and is part of the public because it is a news video. There is nothing inappropriate about it's posting. Leave it up.


Brian Webber 08 Nov 2014, 15:31

I believe Moonshiner has the ability to delete postings, he has done so in the past.


tinyeyes 08 Nov 2014, 14:53

I had the same thought when I saw the link about the child. It's not appropriate here. I'm not sure who can delete the posts, but I agree they should be deleted.


Brian Webber 08 Nov 2014, 13:45

I repeat that this is not the correct place to insert a link to this boy's story. Look carefully at the general tone of "Guys in Glasses" contributions and links.

I urge that all references to children and their glasses be removed without delay.


-14 08 Nov 2014, 13:20

OMG the posting I added to tivosante's was not meant to turn any one on but to add to the info of the plight of a young boy whose story was on the CBS Evening news. I thought, mistakenly I guess, it might be of interest to the group. It turns out I was wrong and for that I apologize.


GreginColo 07 Nov 2014, 21:24

Brian, I agree in both regards, and myoptrix, thanks for the great new additions to your site.


Brian Webber 07 Nov 2014, 19:02

myoptrix, thank you.

GreginColo 03 Nov 2014, 20:02

David; I would agree with Julian that these appear to be fairly strong plus lenses. The thickness of the lenses appear to be in the center, whereas with minus lenses the thickness is on the outer edges, where you see almost no thickness at the edges on this photo. It would be interesting to see a front shot of him also, but I would be pretty sure we would see a fairly noticeable "big eyes" effect, also a characteristic of plus lenses. Just the opposite of the "tiny eyes" effect that many of us enjoy.


Julian 03 Nov 2014, 11:02

David: my guess is that the lens we can see in the photo is a very strong plus; so the guy is highly hyperopic and needs his glasses to see anything at any distance - the way the lens seems to hold the light is characteristic of strong plus lenses.


DNBursky 03 Nov 2014, 08:52

Can someone tell me if this guy wears glasses for close or far, and what is with this picture specifically? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=530314393616&set=t.100000631347188&type=1&theater

Thanks!

Go to utube...'Texas boy,s, before I go blind'........a real inspirational video along with great close ups of high myopic glasses......I would have gladly produced a URL, but thanks to my on going ignorance with apples iPad and navigation therein, there go I but for the grace of another cyber nightmare with just enough attractive stimulus to keep me glued to it....very handy for travel, and you can download magic jack on it and have a literal cell phone where ever you find a hot spot...this way I have been able to keep in touch with friends in the states.........

GreginColo 30 Oct 2014, 19:34

Thanks JP for the photo updates of E.S. As you mentioned, the side photo is quite nice. The top/front facing photo, if recent, is still in the same glasses we first saw him in, missing one nose-piece. It wouldn't seem this would be too comfortable, but he must be used to it by now.


JP 30 Oct 2014, 14:53

Thanks GreginColoEy for your fast food sighting. Always interested when people do things that are unexpected with their prescription - leaving minus lenses aside, or putting on plussies, for distance viewing.

Here's a pic that's new (to me) of Edward Snowden, about half way down: https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/10/28/smuggling-snowden-secrets/ A great combo view of the flash of lens edges on a guy with nice arms. :-)


tivosesante 29 Oct 2014, 04:57

Also meant to say thanks Greg, for responding, but as I suspected, people are not getting the whole gammet, so I'll have to figure that out somehow.....


tivosesante 26 Oct 2014, 16:08

Google Chee lee from Taipei on Facebook.......lots of fotos of a young man with a high script....


GreginColoEy 21 Oct 2014, 19:11

1) Thanks JP for the post of the male nurse; certainly very attractive frames on a handsome and brave guy as he prepares to return to Africa to serve Ebola patients.

2) Tivo good to hear from you and hope you are enjoying Mexico. I was able to open your link and view the three photo albums therein. Thanks.

3) Not a high myopic sighting but still one I found interesting. I was in line for a fast food lunch when a couple of guys came in, tradesmen of some sort as they wore working type uniforms with their names on them. One guy was taller and younger, the other shorter and a bit older (probably mid-40's). The latter was wearing some attractive safety type glasses with attractive frames and myopic lenses I would guess in the -4 or -5 range. They had enough cut in to catch my attention. After being in line for a couple of minutes he lifted his glasses and put them on top of his head. They had a slight tint to them but certainly nowhere near sunglasses, so I was curious why he took them off, especially since he was going to have to read the menu board. I was a couple of people ahead of them, but order my fries without salt so that always takes a bit longer, so I had the chance to stand there and watch them order. To see the wall menu, he leaned forward a bit and was definitely squinting, so I was wondering why he just didn't slip his glasses back down, but he didn't. My food came and I went and sat down, and soon they found a table also, with the glasses still on top of the head of the myopic guy. Had he not been with a co-worker I might have gotten up the courage to invite him to share my table.

tivosesante 04 Oct 2014, 13:32

o.k., it's the video dated 08/7/2014., you have to by date because the videos jump around, also I noticed that the sequences of him without glasses are also of him in different uniforms, so the video is not all from one game, he most likely has got some contacts, I know he has new sport style specs.....


tivosesante 04 Oct 2014, 13:26

a video on the liberty Christian b.b. team in talveras, fl., where elhadji tacko fall is playing currently, shows him for most of the video playing without glasses, contacts?, what do you all think, this is the second time I have run across segments where he's not wearing specs......he's a fascinating guy in every way....I think it's the first video at the top of a stack of videos, in other words the latest.....http://www.maxpreps.com/high-schools/liberty-christian-prep-lions-(tavares,fl)/basketball/home.htm

GreginColo 12 Sep 2014, 12:05

Yes Dave me too; while I also did not so much care for his tough guy look, I guess that's the sign of a good actor, being able to pull off various looks. I think the sweet, nice guy next door look he typically presents is much more his true persona. You are right, today's shots of him are so hot, so I also look forward to what the next two days will bring. This week's blog has been an incredible treat for us Jon Tyler fans. Thanks to those who made it happen, but especially to Jon for openly sharing so much about himself.


Dave 12 Sep 2014, 11:57

GreginColorado --

Couldn't agree with you more re Jon. What a hottie and today's shots are absolutely the best! He's got such nice clean cut looks and his glasses are the frosting on the cake. Plus, he seems like a very pleasant guy. Frankly, I wasn't fooled by his tough guy look in some of his earlier photos. Ha!

I'm looking forward to the next couple of days.

In case you haven't seen it already, there has been a real treat this week on the spexyandheknowsitblog (link below). The feature guy this week is ultra myopic super hunk actor Jon Tyler, who we have seen pictures of, and admired...., in recent months and years.

If you have ever been a Jon Tyler fan, from his sweet Starbucks look to his tough guy mohawk look, you will want to see this week's "Spexy" blog where Jon has some new photos, some old photos (of his early years), and a lot of great and very open commentary about his life. The photos of him have always been so hot, but to get the opportunity to know more about him, and learn what a genuine and caring person he is, makes him all that much easier to admire, and not just for his myopic good looks.

Many thanks to both Jon and the blogger who contacted Jon and worked with him to create this fascinating and in"sight"ful look at this myopic superstar. There have already been 4 days of photos and commentary with 3 more to come, so most definitely worth a look if you are a fan of myopic guys (and even better with a guy as handsome and with as strong an Rx as Jon). Thanks again to both, as well as the photographer, for this great feature.

Thanks Myoptrix for some more great posts to your blog. I especially like the Sept 6 post of the guy that looks like he might be shopping in a thrift store, What a great look he has in those super-size glasses; Whether they are actually his or not he looks so hot in them. Thanks again.

GreginColo 25 Aug 2014, 21:46

Thanks Tivo for sharing your recent sightings; hopefully you will be able to help this guy repair his glasses as an act of kindness, as well as appreciation of his great need for them.

On another note, medium myope actor Z. Lucas Pierce is the very handsome feature guy this week of the Spexy and He Knows It blog. He is soon to debit in a role on Paradise University. In his into to us on the blog, he tells us of a car accident where he lost his glasses for a bit, but fortunately he and his glasses were both okay and soon reunited, despite the car being totaled. A good reminder to all of us to always wear our seat belts.


tivosesante 25 Aug 2014, 17:41

a lot of interesting coincidental situations have taken place in the past few weeks while here in florida...most recent one was spotting a black heavy set man with real strong script in black retro frames, missing one arm.....he boarded a different bus, but on the way to mass on another bus the next day he was sitting by the window and picked up his packages to offer me a seat and began to chat......he told me his name was gregory .....i'll come prepared the next time with repair kit el al to help him repair his frames.......since it was just yesterday that i saw him for the second time and the day before for the first time i think i will see him again soon...he most likely is a new homeless being on the scene here.....in addition to spotting him for the first time he and tony the black fellow with the real thick glasses got on the same bus and tony gave him a sideway glance,as he prepared to board the same bus.....ALL IN A COUPLE OF DAYS IN TAMPA.......


tinyeyes 19 Aug 2014, 00:45

LOL, maybe I'll think of something to back there for. Even though kind of geeky looking, he was helpful and seemed like a cool (straight) dude. I'm sure many here would have complemented his glasses, but I wasn't thinking that fast today. Plus, there was someone in line behind me!


GreginColo 19 Aug 2014, 00:31

Thanks te for the nice sighting post; sounds like a very interesting guy. Thanks for the great description of him and his glasses. I probably would have suddenly remembered something I forgot, not unusual, and forced myself to check out, and check him out, again. Hope you will be able to spot him again....


tinyeyes 19 Aug 2014, 00:16

Sighting: The drugstore clerk tonight. He was tall, skinny, young (20s) and probably Armenian, I think. He was a geek and not really that cute, but his glasses made him alluring anyway! His prescription was at least -9, and his big black retro frames did nothing to hide it. Major cut-in, power rings, and thick unpolished lens edges that stuck out from behind the thick black frames. Wow. I wish I could have lingered longer, but my purchase only took a minute!


GreginColo 18 Aug 2014, 22:53

Great feature guy this week on the Spexy and He Knows It blog. Another Australia comedian who is quite handsome and willing to discuss his -12ish myopia. Interesting that he has never tried contacts and wouldn't consider laser surgery, even though he comments he would like to not have to wear glasses. He also talks about of some his adventures, and misadventures, while wearing, or not, wearing his glasses. It's great when guys open up like this, so let's hope we will learn and see more of him this week. Also you won't want want to miss the rock solid cut-in and power rings in his photo. And, again thanks to the blogowner for all the work that goes into finding and sharing these guys with us. THANKS!

Does anyone know if the "Guys in Glasses" Yahoo group still exists? If it does how can I access the group?


GreginColo 07 Aug 2014, 08:01

Thanks MG; nice headshot of quite handsome myopic guy.

Video posted below is full of headshots of cute super myopic German performer who goes by the name of Maxim. The cut-in and reflection from those those super strong lenses is quite stimulating. Take a look and see what I mean.

James 01 Aug 2014, 14:32

Generic comment alert.

I'm in NYC on holiday and what a great place it is for mega myopic guy sightings. I think this is partly just because there's a huge population at all times (residents and tourists) so odds of GIG sightings go up. But I also think there's a sort of ethos in NY that you don't need to wear contacts if you don't find them comfortable or it's allergy season or whatever. You just do you, even if you is coke bottle glasses.


tivosesante 01 Aug 2014, 09:51

one of my absolute favorites....elhadji tacko fall.............https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K37ja4Vtxy0


GreginColo 29 Jul 2014, 09:14

Thanks Dave; while some of us truly enjoy the look of thicker lenses with their more noticeable cut-in and power rings, ie the coke bottle look, many myopic wearers prefer the less impactful look of today's lense technologies, so it is good that was able to be accomplished for your friend's son.

Yes, life is strange where so many people wish to be less myopic, while there are those few of us who wish to be more so, or in my case to at least be where I was. The old saying "be careful what you wish for" applies here.

And yes I am also a car enthusiast, primarily American cars from the mid-50's to the mid 70's, so this time of year enjoy attending car shows, and if I happen to spot a myopic guy or two in the process, all the better. Unfortunately I have never picked up the photography and computer skills to build photo sites to share some of my sighting, cars or myopic guys, as others so artfully do. I appreciate their skills and willingness to share their photos, of both of these interests of mine.

Thanks and best also, Greg.


Dave 29 Jul 2014, 01:19

GreginColorado -- I believe my friend's son continues to progress myopically, but at a reduced rate. Even if it's only -.50 per year, that could still lead him to a prescription in excess of -12 by the time his myopia should cease, perhaps in his early to mid twenties. He's a cute kid (man, now, I should say) and he rarely wears contacts. His optician is to be commended since he's got him in a pair of very cool horn rim glasses (think Mad Men) that have a slightly reduced diameter and, when combined with high-index lenses, don't produce that dreaded "Coke bottle" look.

Sorry that you thought that the Lasik would solve the problems upstairs. I would spend a small fortune to become seriously myopic. Weird, isn't it, especially when I know guys who would gladly trade their myopia for my nearly perfect vision in a New York minute. And they'd probably pay me handsomely for the privilege!

BTW, somehow I came across your Flickr page (I think) and was pleased to see that you have an interest in American cars from the 70s. Just like tinyeyes and some of my friends here in San Francisco!

Best,

Dave


GreginColo 28 Jul 2014, 14:46

Dave, one more thought here; it's fortunate, for him, that your friend's son ended up only -10 at age 18; maybe that has something to do with his parents' good vision. I am guessing a -10 would more likely be the progression for someone who started needing correction in the 2nd or 3rd grade, and started with an initial Rx of -2 or so. To start with a -4 at age 3 or 4 might more commonly lead to a progression of extreme myopia, with an adult Rx in the upper teens or even beyond. But, as we know, each person is different...


GreginColo 28 Jul 2014, 09:39

That was good Dave that you were able to spot the signs of myopia in you friend's young son, otherwise he might not have been diagnosed with such until he started school, and missed the benefits of correctable good vision during some very formative times of life, such as being able to look in the sky and see a passing plane. It's also another example of how myopia is sometimes hereditary, but sometimesGreginColo not, as with many other characteristics of one's physical and emotional makeup.


Dave 27 Jul 2014, 13:49

Funny how the genes work, isn't it. A friend of mine and his wife (both with perfect vision) produced an adorable son who was found to be myopic at age 3. First prescription: -4. In fact, I was the one who suggested that he might be myopic when I was observed the way his gaze went blank when he looked across a room, and how always wanted to sit right next to the tv. Today, at 18, he's around -10.

BTW, I watched some of the Paradise University episodes in which Jon Tyler plays one of the principal characters and wonder who or what is funding it. Jon is perfect as an innocent Kentucky farm boy.


Sydneycider 27 Jul 2014, 08:28

Jo, old as the Hills was meant to be a cryptic answer to your cryptic challenge. I have been on FB w Jon for a quite few years now. His brother and sister are myopic yes, the later only barely. His youngest brother needs no correction at all.

Cheers


GreginColo 26 Jul 2014, 21:57

Thanks Jo, it would be interesting to know the vision history of their parents, as well as any other siblings. I am guessing Rx of Construction Guy is fairly similar to his brother's, both amazingly strong. I would imagine both started wearing glasses before even starting school. Thanks for the followups.


Jo 26 Jul 2014, 21:16

Construction guy is right. : )

Mohawk guy is the same person.


GreginColo 26 Jul 2014, 19:02

My initial guess was also that "mohawk myodisc guy" in the photos preceding Starbucks Jon Tyler was his brother. But now I am thinking those "tough guy" pics are also Jon Tyler. The reason I say this is the very small brown mole below his left cheek. It shows up closely in the myodisc forward looking shot, and also in the bare-eyed shot posted on another site just recently. In the bare eyed shot where is also a small mole next to his right eye, which you would never notice behind his ultra thick lenses. I echo te to say "amazing" and echo Dave to say "Thanks" Jo and "keep digging", as we enjoy and appreciate your finds of highly myopic guys.

I am now thinking, or at least guessing, that brother may be the construction type guy with a similarly extreme Rx, who also drew a lot of interest when his pictures were first posted.


tinyeyes 26 Jul 2014, 11:58

Oh sorry, I just saw where Jo says he's -27. How did you find that out?

Amazing!


tinyeyes 26 Jul 2014, 11:53

So, Jon is gay, but his brother is straight? I wonder what caused them to both have such high prescriptions? I know myopia runs in families, but RXs that high seem like they might be related to some other health issue. I'm more attracted to the straight brother, but they're both pretty amazing.

By the way, when looking at Jon's FB, I can't see a list of friends. Maybe there is more than one FB account? I'm just trying to find the Asian guy you are talking about.

Does Jon ever say anything or post anything about his glasses or vision? The videos I watched so far treated them like they weren't there (at least the part I saw). The very, very thick "elephant in the room", so to speak. He's got to be in the mid-20s, diopter-wise, right?

Thanks to all for sharing these guys!


Dave 26 Jul 2014, 11:34

Keep digging, Jo! I don't care if it's old news if it's as good as Jon Tyler.

I had mentioned in an earlier post that I thought I had seen Jon on Flickr:baco_1983'sPhotostream but guess that's the mystery brother. They sure look a lot alike. The brother, however, has gone for non-blended myodiscs with plano carriers which do nothing to hide just how unusual they are. They look great with his mohawk and "tough guy" look.

And Jo, you're right about scaring Jon off. All actors like attention but he might construe this as being something that is a bit too weird.


Jo 26 Jul 2014, 10:59

Sorry. Previous message from me. Jo


Sydneycider 26 Jul 2014, 10:31

Oh. I'm sorry for digging up old news then. Cheers.


Sydneycider 26 Jul 2014, 09:58

Jo, this news is older than the hills, Jon and his bro have been around for years!!!!


Rimless 26 Jul 2014, 07:09

I have scanned every single one of his FB friends, let alone look for others with his same surname, but mine was a fruitless search.

I did find the Asian with myodiscs, though. Nevertheless his page was a very dull one with only his profile picture showing.

I guess Tyler cannot wear contacts for some reason or other. There is a photo of him without the horrendously deforming lenses he has to wear and someone commented on his expression saying he looked as if he was about to sneeze. But my opinion is he was only struggling without his low vision aids, and was feeling completely out of touch with reality. In fact, I wonder what vision he can have without his glasses, or WITH them, for that matter.

In the web series (episone 5?) there is a scene in which he is carried away from the hospital bed where he was lying without glasses for the first time, and his boyfriend has to literally take care of him has if he was a blind person. Tellingly, he kept wearing glasses even during the most intimate moments...


GreginColo 25 Jul 2014, 23:15

WOW, we have really been fortunate for so many recent posts of high myopic guys from the entertainment world; most recently Jon Tyler (Paradise Univ); Justin Heazlewood (Australian comic) and MaximNoise (German performer); and a while back Dave Labedz (comic) and Juan Alcazar (film-maker), and there may be others who I am forgetting, although guys like these are hard to forget. Each of them has myopic Rx's from mid teens to upper 20's. I am sure each of us has our favorite of them, but they are all pretty incredible, especially in there willingness to be seen in the super strong glasses and in some cases talk about them. Thanks much to those of you who found and shared the photos and stories of these guys.

BTW, Jo I think I know which photo(s) are Jon Tyler's brother, but will let others also guess before I reveal mine. Thanks.


Jo 25 Jul 2014, 21:52

For any of you with csi powers, go find his brother who is a similar script. And equally good looking. In fact, he has already be featured in ine of the photo archives recently. But I'm not gonna reveal who. Need a little work to do this but if you find it, you'll be wow absolutely wowed!

And while doing that, please be more discreet. Dun scare him, lest he locks up his fb and we'll be left with nothing.

Have fun guys! Yes. Jon Tyler is a real gem. And I wish I'm in episode 5.


tivosesante 25 Jul 2014, 18:11

i'm floored....what a script....thanks to all who posted jon i saw him this morning on my tumblr. blog and went to post it and found you guys already found him....he has a facebook site also.....as well as paradise university........


eyescene 25 Jul 2014, 13:36

Jo -- Thanks! I suspected that his prescription might be higher than -25 and now you've confirmed it. Sometimes it's hard to tell since we don't know if he's wearing high-index 1.8/1.9) Zeiss lenses or high-index (1.74) plastic lenses. That said, he's got quite the prescription. I did see a couple of shots of him without glasses, and he's really quite good-looking. I'd notice him immediately if he was walking down the street without specs. BTW, one of his Facebook friends is a cute Asian dude with blended myodiscs. Perhaps in the -25 range.


Jo 25 Jul 2014, 08:26

He's a -27.


JT Fan Club 25 Jul 2014, 08:23

For all those Jon Tyler fans out there, jump to part two of the interviews, there are a few more photos and videos on this site too.

http://www.paradiseuniversitytheseries.com/interviews.html


Dave 25 Jul 2014, 06:53

Myopic Grant -- I'd say his prescription is more than -20 and might be as high as -25. There was also a photo buried on his Facebook page taken of him when he was around 7 or 8 and his prescription was well over -10 at that point.


Myopic Grant 25 Jul 2014, 00:51

A caricature of writer Michael Schulman. Interesting to see a drawing where the artist acknowledges the cut-in of the glasses. You don't see that very often.

Wow what a hot looking guy with his super strong Rx! what would you guess, around -20. Thanks for the links.


Dave 23 Jul 2014, 13:22

You were right, Jo! That guy (Jon Tyler)is super hot with a super hot prescription! And thanks, Myopic Grant, for providing the exact link.

BTW, if you want to see more pictures of him, go to Flickr: baco_1983'sPhotostream and scroll down until you see the same guy in myodiscs. There's also a very good picture of him in his Starbucks uniform.

I don't know what this guy is singing or saying, but sure is cute and quite myopic with great frames and highly reflective powerful lenses with quite the cut in. Any Rx guesses for him?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lAgwxA67Kdw


GreginColo 21 Jul 2014, 00:15

Thanks tinyeyes for the nice post, especially the before surgery pics. For those of us who are fans of myopic guys, refractive surgery sure diminishes that population, but I should not criticize since I regretfully had it done myself.

The vision is better, but emotionally it was the wrong thing to do.


tinyeyes 19 Jul 2014, 21:36

This is nice to see, even though I hate refractive surgery:

Cute guy gets ICL surgery, and you see him in his glasses, taking them off, getting an eye test, talking about how he has to grope for glasses, etc., before the surgery.

His RX looks to be at least -8.

tinyeyes 30 Jun 2014, 01:51

Tivo,

If you are referring to the latest post with the super myopic black guy, I had a feeling you would like that one. I think he lives in Florida. Do you know him or about him already?


tivosesante 29 Jun 2014, 15:26

Tivosesante 28 Jun 2014, 17:12

Saw victor at the flea market now two days in a row, with his screwy mayo discs and make shift frames....he no longer rides a scooter, but is back to riding a bike.......I have to say I would love to get to know his script, how we'll he sees and if you you all remember I referred to him as a closeted g.o.o.er which I still believe he is.....mostly due to the fact that he won't let me get anywhere near him or will he talk about his eyesight......as far as I got with him once was that he was nearly blind in one eye, well maybe.....also saw Elijah on a bus three days ago and he had a successful operation on this left -20 eye and says that he does not see perfectly out of,it yet, but that it's better than it was with corrective lenses.......the other eye remains at about -8 and will be next for correction, oh well another up and gone, but he's a sweet kid and hated glasses.......so he's happy and about to adopt some kids....me too, maybe....was thinking about taking a boy and girl from the immigration detention center in Arizona, back to Mexico and putting them in school, unless they just want to reunite with their respective families....there are now thousands of immigrant children being housed at the border between Mexico and the u.s.......

Glad to see our friend "Spexy and He Knows It" is back with some new posts. You need to check out his latest posts of a quite handsome -5ish young guy named Jake Regal. In addition to the blog post info and photo you can click on the link within the blog and see him playing himself, or so I presume, in some short little videos, all the ones I watched so far in his glasses. Interesting that he talks about having his prior pair of glasses for almost 10 years, during a time when I would guess he would have been experiencing some natural increases in his myopia, and maybe he did and just waited that long for an Rx change. Anyhow, cute guy, cute videos,....worth checking out. Thanks SAHKI for the posts and links.

Tivosesante 21 Jun 2014, 19:19

Had still another sighting here in Tampa this morning at the flea market, where my old illusive friend victor showed up with his thick mayo discs and both lenses as usual are in the other way around, in other words the right is in the left side and the left lens is in the right side, making the inner circles,farther apart, like John I still suspect that victor is a closeted g.o.c.er....having showed up in a variety of makeshift glasses and even saw him trying on reading glasses which were being distributed to homeless people....time may tell, at least he was a little more friendly and in need of money as he was trying to sell a cell phone, I could have taken advantage of the situation and lured him into a photo session.......


Tivosesante 21 Jun 2014, 04:05

Had a great sighting in both Guadalajara and Mexico City on route to Tampa, fl. This past week first in Guadalajara I saw a gentleman sitting on a park bench with black retro frames all taped together to avoid falling apart....he was in his fifties I would say and fairly good looking and very physically well endowed...the lenses were barely visible, but obviously very thick and powerful, the right one being about -14 and the right one really thick and somewhere around -26........he was easy to engage in conversation and he alluded to his eyesight when I mentioned that he appeared to be in need of new glasses, saying that he was scheduled get corrective surgery...oh well........the other sighting was in a bus terminal in Mexico City last Monday, where a man in his late thirties, got off a bus and walked past me with Stella framed rectangular glasses and so thick with mayo discs on top of all of it, thati would say he had to way above -30....I up and filled him as far as the subway station entrance and from behind could see his lenses from the side and all in all I think they could have been upwards of about an inch.......he too was fairly good looking and of moderate build.....that's it!..

if you remember I ran videos of a computer geek with very limited vision and strong glasses a long way back, anyway of late he has no longer appeared in his videos, but now in his latest he appears again, if you notice , in the lower right hand corner, and with super myodiscs in large black frames, which continuously slip off and down his nose, plano fronts and a deep, deep cut, actually almost deeper than any one that I can remember.......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQzzdTjC8Hc to add he started off years ago with metal rimmed glasses and glass lenses.......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntCcXNqkvbM


Dave 04 Jun 2014, 13:20

Hi tinyeyes --

I saw the handsome and very myopic cyclist in downtown San Francisco, although I saw plenty of high myopes when I was in China back in 2011. No matter how much I tried, it was impossible to take a snap of him without appearing weird. I did notice that whenever he wanted to look to the side, he had to turn his head so that he could look through the center of his lenses. I'm sure he has to be a bit careful going down stairs since he can't see the stairs unless he looks straight down through his glasses. I expect that he has a similar visual experience to somebody who has myodiscs. Someone I used to know had myodiscs and said that he had pretty good vision, and that his transition from conventional to myodiscs wasn't a problem at all because he had long ago got used to looking through the center of his conventional lenses which afforded him the best vision. If he looked to the side of his glasses, his view was distorted so he always moved his head more than someone with perfect vision (or vision corrected by contacts) would do.

The Chinese dude that GregInColorado spotted clearly has decided that wearing a fashionable frame is more important than trying to minimize the thickness/power of his lenses. Even a small frame and high-index lenses wouldn't hide the power of his prescription. I just wonder how heavy his current glasses are, though.

tinyeyes 04 Jun 2014, 00:58

One of the other pictures of the same guy has a caption that says he is 19 years old and -20, but I agree that his glasses look even stronger than that. He's one of my favorites of that set.


GreginColo 03 Jun 2014, 14:47

hi bestshot; agree that guy you highlighted certainly does have a very strong Rx. My best guess would be right around -30, give or take a few diops either way. I know that's not an eye chart behind him, but without those think glasses he would probably have trouble seeing anything other than what is within a few inches of his face. Other opinions?


bestshot 03 Jun 2014, 09:11

what is his rx?


tinyeyes 02 Jun 2014, 02:20

Dave,

What do you think the cyclist's RX was? Was this in China?

As for myodiscs, even though they reduce thickness, is vision better with regular lenses? It seems to vary, but from what I can tell, myodiscs seem to be worn only when RX gets to the upper teens and above.


Dave 01 Jun 2014, 13:58

Jo -- It's interesting how many high myopes in China (and elsewhere) are going for full-size frames which are in vogue today. Of course that means that their super-strong lenses have to be very thick and often myodiscs. It's almost as if they are making a fashion statement with their thick lenses: If you've got it flaunt it.

A couple of weeks ago I saw a very good-looking thirty-something cyclist wearing lenses that were at least 15mm thick at the edges in full-size, very expensive frames. I'm sure they were high-index lenses, and I'm sure his optician offered him the choice of blended myodiscs to minimize the thickness. Nevertheless, he seemed to be saying to the world that this is who I am and my thick glasses are a part of my look. No shame there.

There was an hour long tv interview last night between NBC anchor Brian Williams and myopic whistleblower Edward Snowden, who appears to be wearing the same mid range myopic glasses that we first saw him in a year ago. They sit a little crooked on his face, as they appear to be missing the nose support piece on one side.


tinyeyes 29 May 2014, 01:09

Hello Tinyeyes,

Very interesting observation.. It happened to me last year when she got up and reached in her drawer for a glasses case and said, "I hope you don't mind but these are the thickest lenses you probably will see" (she was about a -19, and frames hardly closed on the hi index lenses) Of course I just gave her a gentle kiss and said they were beautiful, like her. She normally wears about -8 and astig and uses -10 disposable contacts, but she wore her pretty blue real glasses all that day.

Are you male or female?


GreginColo 26 May 2014, 09:01

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7O581Lzrb4

And some think lensed -15's in stylish plastic frames. If those lenses were any thicker the arms would be catching on them when they close.


tinyeyes 26 May 2014, 03:21

Thanks for posting the "glasses" videos. Those are both fun to watch, particularly the first link with the -14 glasses. The deep bowls and thick edges are quite amazing.

I also wanted to answer the previous post about the woman who enjoys the intimacy of being around a man who reveals his glasses in private, while wearing contacts in public. I have experienced this a number of times and have posted about it here before in the past, and I love it. I have happened upon thick glasses and contact cases in bathrooms of cute men, sometimes who I was on a date with, and it was unforgettable. And nothing is better than waking up in a myopic blur with such a guy, reaching for his glasses first thing in the morning so he can find his way to the bathroom and his contacts. The more "secret" the glasses are (and of course, the stronger the minus RX and the more helpless they are uncorrected) the better. And it's like belonging to a special private club since I am a high myope myself, and it feels like we are sort of "together" with our similar vision. It's a very nice feeling.


Myopic Grant 26 May 2014, 02:21

Is there an online retailer who will make glasses with the 1.67 lenses, like the ones posted below?

And some strong myopic trifocals; the bottom add is 2.75 weaker than his regular Rx, guessing -10 or so.

GreginColo 16 May 2014, 23:07

There was a recent post on the "What turns you on about Glasses" from a young lady named Kit to a young man named Anton. I hope they don't mind that I copied some of Kit's response to Anton below, as what she replied could also apply to a gay guy with fascination for myopic gays guys.

Per Kit:

"I'm into it when a guy wears contacts during the day and then I love that hour or so before bed when he wears his glasses. It's that side of someone you only see in private...and I'm reminded of that during the day when I search people's eyes for the telltale sign of contacts. Like I'm pretty sure "normal" people don't look for that when they make eye contact with someone. So I guess it's this inner game/obsession I can keep to myself. It is super hot to be cuddling together with my vision twin and asking something like, "Can you see what time it is?" and him replying, "Not if you can't!"

"As for thick lenses, it's not the glasses themselves but what it's like when their glasses come off. I really like being intimate with a bare eyed myopic guy because he gives off this sort of unfocused look and our faces just gravitate closer. But it's also the mundane things like checking email on their phone in the middle of the night or reading a book with the page next to their nose. Again, I think it turns me on because it's a side of the person that most don't get to see and I like that exclusivity."

What do think guys, do these fascinations apply just as much for gay guys as for straight women, each with a fascination for myopic guys?

yes a lot of interesting things about him, one his ability to play so well with such high corrective lenses and I remember this morning seeing a video where he is on the court playing with no glasses for a very brief spell....will try to find the video and upload it later today.....there are in total about eight videos out there.....


Tinyeyes  12 May 2014, 17:18

Very interesting young athlete! I wonder if there is a correlation between his extreme myopia and his height, since myopia is often caused by the eyeball growing too long. Also note that he wears a head strap on those glasses -- quite necessary so they won't fall off during play. I wonder if he's been able to wear contacts?


GreginColo 12 May 2014, 14:53

There's a little longer vid of him on the Athletes thread. I imagine at 16 y/o he's got some potential for more growth in his height, as well as for increase in his myopia, which often doesn't stabilize until early 20's. His myopia must have progressed to such a high level pretty rapidly as a younger photo of him (I presume) doesn't show him in glasses.


tivosesnte 12 May 2014, 12:39

I would say -18 to -19 otherwise he would be wearing myodiscs if it was any higher, although myodiscs might interfere with his sight while playing, I have heard that they have a different focus effect requiring a movement of the head to focus properly...

Great encounter, Greg -- thanks for sharing. His RX sounds quite intriguing, but I'm sad to hear that he's not driving and able to work.


GreginColo 25 Apr 2014, 00:17

Earlier this evening I encountered the most myopic guy I have ever personally run across. My guess is his Rx is in the -30's, as his frames were very small but the lenses quite thick, so that they pretty much followed the contour of his face on the sides. I noticed him as I was walking into a grocery store after work and he was walking out, but it was easy to spot him as significantly myopic. When I got in the store, I realized I had left my shopping list and coupons in the car, so went out to the parking lot hoping I might see the guy again. He was fooling with a bike and backpack so I went and got the stuff from the car and as I walked back to the store he was still there, so I went up to him and asked if he was having any trouble. He said because of his poor eyesight it took him a little extra time to do things, such as unlock his bike, but he had just accomplished that. We introduced ourselves and chatted a bit. He said he didn't drive any longer because of his vision but did enjoy riding his bike both for the exercise and to get around town, where he could stay on lower traffic streets. He also said he was unable to work because of his eyesight so went on disability about 4 years ago. I am guessing he is in his 50's. I didn't get any feeling that he might be gay, but we exchanged names and phones numbers to possibly get grab a lunch or go on a bike ride sometime. Whether that will ever happen or not remains to be seen.

Where are you based in Asia? You say you are a working professional, what do you do? What age are you? Sorry to be so inquisitive but I expect to return to Asia soon and hopefully we could meet up. I am now back in Scotland where there are hardly any seriously myopic guys around.

I met Cedric in Kyoto last week. He encouraged me to wear my GOC combination which increased my mid teens Rx to the same as the guy in your video clip.

DaveV 21 Apr 2014, 18:47

Jo, I think you are like the rest of us just Opitically Obsessed. I see nothing wrong with that.


Dave 21 Apr 2014, 12:54

Yes, thanks Jo for your report. A good number of us are simply pea green with envy!

Nevertheless, I have managed to spot a couple of good ones here in San Francisco: One was a mid-thirties Latino workman who was about one diopter away from plano fronts and the other a really good-looking hipster in the Mission who was wearing the slightly over-sized glasses favored by his crowd which emphasized just how strong they were. I'd say they were easily a -11/-12 with plano fronts, super power rings and obvious lens thickness which the frames could only partially cover. Frankly, I think he had made them a deliberate part of his look for which I was glad.

Another sighting was an older (maybe 60ish) guy at a lecture I attended last week. I was sitting behind him and didn't immediately notice how strong his glasses were because -- unlike the hipster -- he had everything done to minimize their obvious strength: the temples were quite wide which hid the incredible thickness of his lenses (at least 1/2 inch) and the frames were quite small. Nevertheless, a head on look revealed massive cut-in and major power rings. I'd say he could easily have been in the high teens and probably should have had myodiscs. He was constantly fiddling with them to see the screen so I suspect that he was having problems keeping them perfectly positioned for maximum effectiveness. I never would have given him a second look if not for his glasses.

Actually, I think I found the Latino most appealing since you don't expect someone who is part of a drywall team to be wearing such strong glasses. Something appealing about an extremely myopic guy who isn't a professional where years of study have taken their toll.


GreginColo 20 Apr 2014, 23:06

yes, jo, that's certainly one of the nice aspects of this forum is it allows guys who have, or share, a myopic guy fascination to be true to themselves, and it's good you've been able to meet up with some like-minded guys on a one-on-one basis. Others of us, because of various constraints or inhibitions, or whatever, still only dream of such encounters.

But sometimes fate works in quite strange ways and you meet someone that is the person you might have always dreamed of. That recently happened to a friend of mine. Some of you may recall a 10-question myopic guy survey that I posted last fall and got 20 or so responses to. From that survey I developed an email friendship with a guy half a world away, who at the same time had also developed correspondence with someone else, a guy of significant true myopia, who also lived half a world away.

The two of them eventually met in a country not home to either of them and after a week together became very close, and thereafter traveled to each others' home countries, and long story short, in less than 90-days of first meeting, they had a civil union and are now on an extended honeymoon. It's great they have the freedoms for such, and while I somewhat envy them, I also sincerely congratulate them and wish them a long and happy future, enjoying each other in many ways, but thru a connection that was initially ignited by their mutual interest in significantly myopic guys. So whenever this thread seems to die off, the message for all of us is to keep it going in hopes that it might just help two guys of similar myopic interest, meet up like these two did and develop long-term connections.

Thanks jo for the personal sharings you provide to this thread.

and for a matter of fact, i have travelled to meet several of them, each higher then the previousÖ from -12, -15, -18, -19, -20,-24, -26 and -29Ö. i've had the all and each time, i find someone with a higher power, my heart jumps a beat and i find myself thinking of ways to meet them up. i guess this is the only forum i can be true to myself, that's why i'm revealing so much. most of the time, i'm just a normal working professional.


Jo 20 Apr 2014, 21:41

On this subject, i just wonder how many of you will seriously go all out to travel half a continent to meet a guy i thick glasses? say if you chatted with someone online, and they are miles away, would you just go all out to meet them, even at the mere promise of possible sex? for me, yes. in fact, i'm home away from home because i'm here at a place where there are many more myopic guys then i even have right at home. and the we are talking about high double digits. I have travelled a many times just to meet guys in thick glasses, and i admit, mostly with sex in mind. is it just me that the fetish is so strong? or am i just a slut?


eli 20 Apr 2014, 20:23

I am now saving up for a trip to Asia!! WOW!! Sounds the place to be for seeing high myopic guys. By all accounts it would be a serious problem for me to control the rush I would feel all the time!!!


GreginColo 20 Apr 2014, 09:10

Thanks, Matt, for sharing your Osaka airport layover observations. While airport layovers are usually not very fun, it sounds like this one was a bit exciting for you, being able to see a good number of high myopic guys with thick lenses. I don't have the answer to your question about why there are so many high myopic Asian guys but it seems to be a frequent observation on this site. Its good that Asian guys seem comfortable to be seen out and about in think lenses. Thanks again for the sharing.

matt 20 Apr 2014, 06:40

Just passing through Osaka airport, Japan, and I can vouch for the many highly myopic guys here. Not just minus but high minus. How come there seems to be many severe myopic young men in Asia?

There seems toĀ@Á≤ be a liking for full frame lenses I have not seen any myodiscs. The lads do not seem to mind the very thick white edges and with some of the lenses my head turns instantly. Spent the lay over following guys around with those special lenses.


Cedric 12 Apr 2014, 21:40

To Bruce,

SNAP!!!

I am spending the last few days of my trip in Kyoto. I have left a message on the "messages" board on the left hand side as you walk in the K.I.C.H. The message is on light green paper, hope you find it today, the building is closed tomorrow, Monday.

Cedric


Bruce 12 Apr 2014, 06:19

Hi Cedric,

I am in Kyoto, Japan, for a few more days to see the last of the cherry blossom. I almost satisfy your hyperthetical advert. My age is exactly half way but my Rx is a bit lower! If you are in Kyoto then I visit The International Community House most days to check my email and visit this site. On Wednesday I head off back home to Scotland.


Cedric 10 Apr 2014, 21:53

Jo, I am at present travelling around Japan. I am unsure when I will be moving back to China.

Gregincolo, yes it is a very exciting adventure. The highest Rx I chatted to alas did not share my "interests". The only man I have met on this trip who shares all my interests just falls short of my ideal advert!! (But no problems there!!) He is in his late twenties and just minus 30D, but he is from London and we will hopefully meet up when I return to the UK. Like me he has been searching in vain for the mega myopic guy.


tivosesante 09 Apr 2014, 21:56

yes, I believe Anthony is the strongest with about -24 in one eye - 27 in the other, just a guess, they are pretty thick....if you scroll down you see some side views....john is a close second and I have come to believe he may be a real closeted g.o.c. er ; victor too, the one with the round metal rims, he's very cagy and constantly coming up with weird glasses and super strong myodiscs now, also refuses to be photographed any more..... junior was -13 and -14 and Elijah is -20 and -8, that one is for sure, junior probably is more by now.....thanks for letting me know......


GreginColo 09 Apr 2014, 20:48

Thanks Tivo, I was able to open the second one; some really strong glasses there; did you say that was the real Rx for each of those guys?


tivosesante 09 Apr 2014, 19:08

greg, thanks for the quick feedback, try this http://soulcaptor.tumblr.com/ I transferred it to tumblr, maybe this url. will work, frankly I havn't found a clear way to upload images from personal files to eyescene, but joe has done it with picasa, maybe you joe can give me a hint how you do it so that everyone in eyescene can view it....thanks....


GreginColo 09 Apr 2014, 14:53

Tivo; good to hear from you and thanks for the link; I wasn't able to open it but hope to get it figured out.

Cedric; thanks for sharing about your Asia sightings; sounds quite exciting and I must say it sounds like you would be a nice sighting yourself. Good wishes for your Asian travels.


tivosesante 09 Apr 2014, 08:04

hi everyone, want to thank you all for keeping the site alive, have been laying low in mexico here and decided to upload a collage of the real ones that I had known in tampa over the years...I still think tampa is the myopic male capital of the world......https://plus.google.com/photos/105066828604706326817/albums/6000261368726171921


Jo 09 Apr 2014, 07:37

Hi Cedric. Which part of Asia are u in? We might be able to cross path if you are nearby.


Cedric 09 Apr 2014, 07:06

Hi Jo,

Guess I have been very lucky then.

If I was to put an advert in a local paper it would read

"Straight acting guy, young early sixties. WLTM a highly myopic guy, thirty/forty years old with -30D spex or higher."

China and now Japan have so many potential guys!! My own Rx is -21D with some cyl and prism.


Jo 08 Apr 2014, 22:51

Cedric, you are one very lucky guyÖ. i've been i asia all my life and the highest i've met so far in person is only about -29.

I wish i'm in your shoesÖ.


Cedric 08 Apr 2014, 22:17

Travelling through Asia at present, myopia heaven. At every corner a guy in high minus glasses, usually very thick and a strong power. Many lenses are plane fronted with the magical reflection flashes in addition to the usual cut in and power rings. Several guys okay to chat about their glasses, the highest Rx so far has been a young man with -34D.


GreginColo 07 Apr 2014, 20:46

What a scary and close call for this young man, but thankfully he is okay! With his significant degree of myopia I doubt he would be doing much of anything, let alone operating power equipment, without visual correction. Hopefully he was wearing safety glasses or goggles. The noticeable reflection thrown off from the glasses throughout the video would seem to indicate they are probably flat fronts, highlighting the significance of his Rx. Best of luck to him as he resumes his profession; I doubt I could do that. Thanks for the video post.


Julian 07 Apr 2014, 11:30

Unnamed poster: your post might seem to suggest the accident was caused by his eyesight; I don't think he could make any kind of attempt at his job bareyed. He looks really good in those glasses, but I don't think he'd see much without them!

GreginCol 25 Mar 2014, 07:51

I agree, te, that the guy is very cute and also that he must have had a high Rx fairly young to start contacts at 8 y/o. He may have had myodiscs or if using glasses just around home may have had full frames lenses without caring too much about the thickness, ot the other attributes of such strong lenses. Often in testimonial ads like this, they will show a before picture or at least a photo of his pre-op glassses so the veiwer can appreciate his strong Rx, although likely not as much as we (GWTG fans)would have...Thanks


tinyeyes 25 Mar 2014, 00:41

I think he's very cute. It's hard to imagine in glasses that strong. But I'll keep trying! He got contacts at 8 years old -- he must have been in very thick glasses already by then, because that's quite a young age to get into contact lenses. It sounds like he was able to wear contacts full-time and glasses were just for home/nighttime wear. I wonder if he wore myodiscs?


GreginColo 24 Mar 2014, 21:31

Thanks te for the post; too bad we didn't see a before picture with his glasses. But he seems quite pleased with the outcome, so that's what most matters.


Dave 24 Mar 2014, 16:55

He'd be a lot cuter with glasses although I doubt he'd think so. At that level of correction, his glasses would have to be at least two or three diopters over his contact lens prescription. Oh, well, at least he's happy


tinyeyes 24 Mar 2014, 14:15

This guy was -18/-19, and depending on your point of view, sadly no longer is myopic (but could be again, since he had reversible ICL surgery.)

http://youtu.be/otBOW_ffdHo


GreginColo 20 Mar 2014, 21:03

Since there seems to be a renewed interest in posting sightings, I'll share one from this morning. I was at the gym for my normal quick pre-work, mini-workout. After having showered and in the process of finishing dressing, a bearish guy (think recent post on "Even more guys..." blog) walked past me heading to the showers area. I immediately was caught by the mid range myopic glasses he was wearing, so was curious if he would take them off and leave them on the counter outside the shower area so I could get a little closer look at them. I guessed the RX in the -6 to -8 range. Unfortunately, he wore them in to the shower room and I needed to head off to work. It's kind of interesting how guys with similar seeming moderately strong Rx's treat their glasses during the after exercise cleanup process; some take them off and leave them in their locker and shower in a myopic fog and them come back to their locker and stick their nose to the lock to open it; others wear their glasses to the the dressing area but take them off leave them on the counters outside the shower room, and others keep them on even when in the shower except for when washing their face. It seems like guys usually come with their glasses on and leave with them on; only rarely anymore do I see a guy transitioning between glasses and contacts, or visa-versa. Any other good gym, or other, sightings to share?


Dave 20 Mar 2014, 14:28

tinyeyes -- Many thanks for posting those pictures of that amazing hunk. Wow! If I have a looks type ... Oh, and thanks for putting together that terrific blog of yours. I didn't know it was you behind it but all of us are grateful.

I'll post some of my San Francisco sightings when I've got a bit more time.

Keep up the good work!


Julian 17 Mar 2014, 09:46

I'm glad we're posting sightings again. I have a photo in my screensaver that I find terminally cute: kissable lips. perfect nose. long eyelashes - what more could anyone ask for? Myopia; a certain amount of that - not enough to satisfy some of you - and delightfully nerdy black plastic frames on his glasses. I'll try to post it, but I don't have the url - it was obviously on one of thee tumblr blog, but I can't locate it now: tumblr_m1enukmst01qa1vupo1_500.jpg


GreginColo 16 Mar 2014, 23:01

As you said, WOW! Thanks te for capturing photos of him and sharing with the rest of us. If I had a "short-list" of dream guys, he would surely be on it, at least based on photos. He would be a very attractive guy in any regard, but seeing his myopia like this makes him even more so. I notice he just has a hand basket rather than a cart, so maybe he shops often. Were you able to engage him in any conversation? THX, Greg.


tinyeyes 16 Mar 2014, 17:35

WOW. I had another great sighting today, at a supermarket! I have photos on my blog here--http://guyswiththickglasses.tumblr.com/post/79800813081/

When I walked into the store and saw this hunk (from behind) I could immediately tell his glasses were strong. Then when the turned and I saw his face and tiny eyes framed in those glasses, my heart skipped a beat. I have a hunch this guy wears contacts 90% of the time, and decided to try out his newish retro frames for a little Sunday morning errand running. His blue eyes looked decidedly shrimpy in them, but his RX was probably no stronger than -7 or -8. Enough for me, especially with that body!


GreginColo 16 Mar 2014, 14:06

James: I second tinyeyes' comments about the enjoyment from the guys you post on your new blog. Another very enjoyable site for those of us so affected with this fascination, and your commentary is great too, adding additional stimulation to the photos themselves. Thanks to both.


tinyeyes 16 Mar 2014, 11:10

We are in cars too much here in California as well, James. That's why I end up having sightings in places like the bank, stores or the gym. In any case, you may not be finding that many actual sightings, but I'm certainly enjoying your virtual sightings on the "Even More Guys In Thick Glasses" blog!


James 16 Mar 2014, 03:09

Thanks for the sighting, Tinyeyes. I for one wish people did post their sightings here more often. I would post some, I just don't seem to have many noteworthy ones now that I'm in South Africa, where we're all in our cars all the time and don't come as much into contact with strangers. Also, there's a bit of a macho culture like in Australia in which guys with serious myopia are more likely to favour contacts in public.


GreginColo 15 Mar 2014, 20:58

te, sounds like quite an interesting and fun sighting at the bank; Thanks for sharing with the rest of us. Greg.


tinyeyes 15 Mar 2014, 17:26

We don't post sightings here much anymore, but I had a pretty good one yesterday. I was at the bank, and saw a tall, slim, but well built 30-ish Asian guy walk in. He was wearing dark glasses, but cut-in was easily visible as he walked into the lobby from the bright street behind him. As it turned out, the bank wasn't crowded and he ended up at the teller window right next to mine. Now I could see that his glasses were the kind that get lighter as they adjust to the dimmer indoor light. So now the cut-in was clearly visible, as were the thick edges of his rimless frame glasses. He was around -7 or -8, probably, too myopic to be in a rimless but they worked well on him anyway. He also had a deep sexy voice as he asked the teller about a long dormant account or something like that. All in all, there was something very masculine and appealing yet nerdy about him, and it was one of the better sightings I've had in a while.


GreginColo 03 Mar 2014, 08:50

Sorry on prior post I didn't realize so many photos would attach; you have to scroll down all the way to photo 56 for Steven Price photo.


GreginColo 03 Mar 2014, 08:48

Thanks Eli, attached is another photo of award winning composer Steven Price; I would guess his Rx to be "moderate" ie in the -4 to -8 range, although always hard to tell for sure. All pictures I have seen of him he is wearing glasses.

GreginColo 02 Mar 2014, 23:30

Musical composer Steven Price was myopically handsome as he accepted his Oscar tonite. You may want to google him for additional photos.

tinyeyes 02 Mar 2014, 11:43

eli 02 Mar 2014, 08:24

Great picture you have just posted, thanks.

Nice cut in and some prism too to correct that slight turn in his eye.

This guy's got some decent myopia: https://plus.google.com/+JimMartinUK/posts


JP 02 Mar 2014, 04:32

GreginColo - I agree - somewhere in the -5.00 to -8.00 range, and that's an rx that some of us could satisfy ourselves with.

There have been few pics released, and some press comment that this might be deliberate. These don't look new, or at least they look like last summer's pics, but it's great to have them in higher resolution.


GreginColo 01 Mar 2014, 21:02

Tanks te for the additional photos of Edward Snowden; not sure if these are recent on or not, but if so, it looks like he is still missing the left nose pad of his glasses as was noticed when the photos first surfaced last summer. Given his situation, I am not sure what the protocol would be for him to obtain new glasses if he wanted or needed them. His Rx appears in the mid single digits, say maybe the -5 to -8 range. What do others think?


tinyeyes 01 Mar 2014, 19:07

Well, how about that.... our friend over the guyswglasses just posted very nice photos of Edward Snowden.

http://guyswglasses.tumblr.com/post/78238781806


tinyeyes 01 Mar 2014, 11:48

Re: Snowden

I also looked for pics and found nothing when the story first broke. This picture makes it look like his RX is a little weaker than I had thought, but he's still compelling in them.


JP 01 Mar 2014, 04:06

Anyone else regretting the shortage of pics of Edward Snowden? I hadn't seen this one before (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/07/fbi-burglars-snowden_n_4557226.html) which reveals that his specs are a probably old frame by Burberry.

I think those are "BCG" military glasses on the guy in Myopic Grant's post. Very cute. They do have a way of making a low to moderate RX look like a high minus! Thanks for the post.


Gregin Colo 16 Feb 2014, 15:44

Thanks te and MG for your photo shares; both interesting moderate minus guys. MG, the guy in your post sure has some monster size glasses. Imagine those in a high Rx...

GreginColo 12 Feb 2014, 00:19

Te, I agree the guy in the hardhat and beard and the other 3 photos of him are hard to stop looking at. I would guess -20 ish or so. Although there are many strong scripts in this set of photos, his is certainly one of the, if not the, strongest.


tinyeyes 11 Feb 2014, 23:57

Baco's new shots are awesome. I wonder what the script of the guy with the beard (shown in hard hat in one photo) is? I can't stop looking at him....

tinyeyes 11 Feb 2014, 01:48

One of my favorite tiny eyed guys, David Lee King. I haven't looked him up in a while. He's still doing things like posting closeups of his bloodshot eye in his hard contacts on Flickr,

I think he's -12.


tinyeyes 11 Feb 2014, 01:45

My answer to the below questions: 1 (a); 2 (a)


GreginColo 08 Feb 2014, 21:49

Hello guys, the next question I will put out to share involves refractive surgery. I know there is a separate thread for this topic, but we'll keep it here as followup on some of the previous questions we've discussed.

1) Regarding surgery (lasik, etc)to improve your vision (ie to eliminate or reduce the need for correction):

a) never seriously considered it

b) considered it but not a high priority

c) seriously considered it but was unable to for some reason(s)

d) had it and regret it.

e) had it and am happy with it.

2) Same question only this time it refers to surgery to increase the need for correction (ie the desire to wear stronger glasses):

a) never seriously considered it

b) considered it but not a high priority

c) seriously considered it but was unable to for some reason(s)

d) had it and regret it.

e) had it and am happy with it.


GreginColo 06 Feb 2014, 22:23

Significantly myopic American Idol contestant, John Fox, who was videoed on this thread a week or so back was eliminated in the recent group round, so we will not be seeing more of him in this context. He was without glasses in his last round, so no doubt in contacts, but unfortunately the judges let him go. (Not a good week for John Fox, as with Denver Bronco's head coach, similarly named). And AI judge Harry Connick Jr seems to alternate between what appear to be mildly myopic glasses, and no glasses. Certainly an attractive look either way.


GreginColo 05 Feb 2014, 19:40

Thanks:

tinyeyes, for the post of the gov't scientist. Hopefully a real, and significantly, myopic scientist or technician working to help protect our collective health. Nice looking frames and reasonably powerful lenses.

Myoptrix, for the updates to you blog; definitely some cute guys there, and its always nice to see them in their attractive glasses, as well as in a bare-eyed myopic fog.


Myoptrix 05 Feb 2014, 17:46

Little update, guys...

JP 05 Feb 2014, 16:57

Thanks tinyeyes. I agree. A good-looking pair of specs that I'd like to put on myself. And all the better that he's been overpowering that rx to fixate on something small and close.


tinyeyes 05 Feb 2014, 15:58

It's always funny to see a spexy guy in unexpected places, like this US government website. I wonder who he is? Probably a model for a stock photo, but the glasses look real, and so does the cut-in.

The middle "mystery myope" has it all. Who is he?

Thanks for the fun.


Gregin Colo 31 Jan 2014, 14:12

Thanks Julian; what an adorable video of two likewise guys; its always fun and hot to see guys swap glasses and try to adjust to each others' correction. Hat's off to whoever asked the question that prompted the glasses swap. And I do agree that they look better in each others frames.


Julian 31 Jan 2014, 10:19

I think I first heard of the Vlogbrothers, novelist John Green and his brother Hank, here on EyeScene back in 2007. They communicate regularly by video on YouTube. In a post I found yesterday, they appear together and are prompted to swop glasses (they're both reasonably myopic). I'm inclined to think each of them looks better, while seeing worse, in the other's glasses. Check them out at

Thanks JP for sharing your food store sighting; as with so many quick conversations like that, we wish we would have used the opportunity to strike up a bit more of a conversation about glasses/vision correction.


JP 30 Jan 2014, 15:10

Just back from the food store where it was so quiet that I had the choice of three checkouts. I chose the one with the guy with glasses, naturally, even if he wouldn't have grabbed my attention in a crowd, but hadn't intended to chat. However I figured I'd compliment him on his specs. "Cool glasses by the way. Big and funky."

He commented that he can't stand small glasses where he can see the blur around the sides because that gives him a headache. He explained that "with my prescription everything's really blurred so I want to have big frames and be able to see". I said "I understand".

Funnily enough for me, perhaps because I didn't see him face-to-face at first, and because he wasn't my type, I hadn't noticed the strength of his lenses in an oversize frame that he wore well with big styled hair. He could well have been -6.00. I wish I'd taken the bait and commented on my own prescription.


astigmaphile 28 Jan 2014, 21:51

Julian,

I think that the term id exotropia.


Julian 28 Jan 2014, 20:53

Seeing that comment about my namesake's PD, I've just checked out the last video again. His eyes are certainly wide apart - but does he have a bit of divergent strabismus too? (I forget the proper term.)


just me 28 Jan 2014, 17:02

Yes I also think he is + with some cylinder

But he must have a PD of around 100 !!


astigmaphile 28 Jan 2014, 12:25

The cute guy in the youtube video looks like plus to me with quite a bit of with the rule plus cylinder.


GreginColo 28 Jan 2014, 09:21

THANKS:

Julian, for the additional posts of cute, young "scientist" guy; you are right definitely a plus Rx, although I am not good at guessing the strength of such.

tinyeyes, for sharing your viewing of myopic comedian, including reference to his myopia in his act, hopefully an extra bit of excitement for you. Unless of special fascination, as for those of us on this site who like to know, or at least guess, at Rx guys' levels, most people probably don't know or understand their Rx until it gets to a fairly high level; just as most of us didn't know or understand our blood pressure or cholesterol numbers until aging forces us into such awareness.

Thanks to both, Greg.


Julian 28 Jan 2014, 07:34

I've been looking at David Bursky's youtube guy, whose name is apparently Julian 8), and found him on two more videos. Same glasses every time, unmistakeably plus - at times there is a definite cut-OUT - but I suspect a bit of cylinder as well. Check him out at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_7qe-LoCQo and again at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApoYwEeDNrc Incidentally I think he's quite cute.


tinyeyes 28 Jan 2014, 01:04

I have a sighting, but no photo to accompany it. I went this weekend to a standup comedy show. One of the comedians was a man, not bad looking, but on the older side (maybe 45-50?) , shaved head, short, with glasses. And not only did he have glasses, but he used them as part of his comedy material. His joke was along the lines of "Most people don't know the numbers of their prescription. If you know the numbers, you must be blind. I'm minus eleven! Glasses by Hubble." His glasses very very attractive, semi-rimless, and although I noticed the minus RX right away, I never would have guessed they were that strong. It was a fun experience hearing a high myope use the glasses as part of his routine.


tinyeyes 27 Jan 2014, 21:24

He looks like he's definitely wearing a plus RX. It might be fake but it's probably real, because if he has normal vision he wouldn't be able to see well with those glasses. They look fairly strong.


GreginColo 27 Jan 2014, 20:32

Hi David, in my opinion, he is certainly not near-sighted, as no signs of a minus Rx in his glasses. He is either farsighted (plus Rx), which could be why his eyes look large, the opposite effect of myopic correction, or they may just be dummy glasses for effect in the video.


DNBursky 27 Jan 2014, 19:32

Saw this guy on youtube, is he near or farsighted or what?

David

Julian 27 Jan 2014, 06:18

I think my answer is probably 4 - fuelled by discovering EyeScene back in 1997.


Jay 26 Jan 2014, 22:35

#5 for sure, Greg.


tinyeyes 26 Jan 2014, 15:59

For me the answer would be 3, stayed about the same. Of course, my interest/fetish increased a lot at a young age (teen years) and probably peaked in my early 20s, but then didn't change much. I'm quite a bit older now, and while my interest has gone up and down depending on stimuli and what happened in my life, including dating highly myopic guys, it's been constant overall since my teen years. And quite strong!


bill 26 Jan 2014, 15:06

In fact Greg I did think of starting with the statement about you knowing me very well!!


GreginColo 26 Jan 2014, 14:42

Bill; you wouldn't have fooled me for a minute with number 1 based on what little I already know of you.


bill 26 Jan 2014, 14:11

Greg,

Thought I may try to lie and say number 1. But as every picture on James' new blog has me excited then it's a number 5 for sure.


GreginColo 26 Jan 2014, 13:51

Hello Guys; sometime later last year I posted a survey of 10 questions or so to help us learn more about guys of similar fascination for guys in glasses, and also to help generate discussion of such topics of interest. For 2014, I will do it a bit different and if a questions comes to mind I will just put it on this thread one at a time, for whoever cares to answer.

So now I am curious, as you have gotten older, no matter what you age may be, has your interest in guys with glasses?:

1) become much less

2) become somewhat less

3) stayed about the same

4) gotten somewhat stronger

5) gotten much stronger

Since I should not ask a question I am not willing to answer, I would say for me 5, or at least 4. While always a strong interest to me since early grade school, I now know how much it influences my life, and how much I let it do so. Maybe because I am more open about such now that I am aware of photo blogs, discussion groups, and knowing of other guys of similar interest, I don't feel so weird about this interest as I once did, so maybe that makes it seems stronger.

Thoughts from other guys?


GreginColo 26 Jan 2014, 13:03

Hi MG, from what I have read about Chad Stark, his -10 or so Rx is quite real and he started needing myopic correction at quite a young age. I think I got this from the feature on him on the SpexyandHeKnowsIt blog some months back. I am wondering if he may have just popped on his glasses over his contacts for a photo of him in his glasses, and been eyepopingly double corrected for a brief moment.


 26 Jan 2014, 12:31

http://spexinedina.tumblr.com/ About the sixth picture down.


Myopic Grant 26 Jan 2014, 12:24

Does Chad Stark do GOC? In this picture you can clearly see his contacts on while he's wearing glasses. Interesting... http://spexinedina.tumblr.com/tagged/chadstark


Greg 26 Jan 2014, 11:47

Hi Greg,

I think there's some way you can submit it directly on the site itself. I'm not sure how to do that yet, but if you are, feel free to do it.

Otherwise, feel free to email me (with pics or in general) at davidjamesmagna@gmail.com


GreginColo 26 Jan 2014, 09:35

I certainly agree James, that tinyeyes' site is the gold standard for myopic guy sites and is what got many of us to be more open and sharing about such interest, to realize there are other guys with such fascination. At the same time, your site also provides a new perspective with some fresh new photos of guys of different vintage. For those of us who may have such photos stashed away but don't have the talent to make a blog, would you be interested to receive those James for consideration for your blog, and if so how would we get those to you? Thanks, greg.


James 26 Jan 2014, 01:42

Thanks Tinyeyes. Repost as much as you like. Your Tumblr is the gold standard!


DNBursky 26 Jan 2014, 00:11

James,

Thanks as well.

David


tinyeyes 25 Jan 2014, 21:30

You're welcome. Check out this highly myopic computer pioneer featured in Apple's tribute to the 30th anniversary of the Macintosh.

GreginColo 25 Jan 2014, 21:14

Thanks tinyeyes for your long term, and James for your more recent, efforts to capture and share the enjoyment of high myopic guys.


bill 25 Jan 2014, 18:58

James, a bear cub with laser spex!!! No 3 is awesome too. WOW!!!!


tinyeyes 25 Jan 2014, 18:32

James, already loving your new Tumblr.... thanks! "Guys with thick glasses" is following it and may not be able to resist re-posting. The German guy with long hair is my favorite so far. I could also stare at his cut-in for hours -- those are beautiful glasses, and he indeed deserves the "tinyeyes" moniker.


bill 25 Jan 2014, 06:48

James, had to smile when you said "whet the appetite". We are soaked in admiration!


James 25 Jan 2014, 05:22

Bill, I wish that was the case, but no. These are already existing pictures I'm just curating in one place. Some of the guys I've corresponded with, others not. All pictures are publicly available though.

Where I have Rx info or the guy has said something to me about his glasses, I will always post that info.

Not everything I post will be able to match the overwhelming nature of the first two Rx's. Obviously I started with two to whet the appetites of people out there.


bill 25 Jan 2014, 04:47

James, you understand just what it is guys like us prefer to see. Your blog has captured two of the main interests, lens thickness and intense cut-in.

Do you take the photos yourself? If you do then you get to meet these guys. Any chance you can include details, Rx for example.

I eagerly await your next contribution.


GreginColo 24 Jan 2014, 14:52

Not much for me either, but would go on more if that were you, as it seems we have some similar interests. Thanks for the work on your new blog, great gyopia there so far.


James 24 Jan 2014, 14:21

Nope, never been on lenschat.


GreginColo 24 Jan 2014, 13:58

Thanks James, look forward to more such high myopic excitement. And by the way, just curious, are you jamesd from lenschat or is that different James, if you don't mind me to ask?


James 24 Jan 2014, 13:41

Greg - glad you're enjoying so far. More to come....


GreginColo 24 Jan 2014, 12:43

Wow; now I just looked again at James' new site to see guy 2. Extreme cut-in = extreme myopia, almost approaching the myodisc range I would guess. THANKS.


GreginColo 24 Jan 2014, 12:35

It sounds like a number of us are awaiting more posts to James' new site. As already mentioned, the lenses thickness in his first featured guy created quite the sense of excitement.


bill 24 Jan 2014, 11:41

James, I am confident that you will have the full attention of many of us. The new selection of pictures will be much appreciated.


Dave 24 Jan 2014, 11:07

Whoops! I should have addressed my post to James.


Dave 24 Jan 2014, 11:06

Bill, Yes, thank you for the new site! And I'm glad there will be more diversity in the types of guys you will post!


James 24 Jan 2014, 05:45

Hi Bill,

Much more to come! I also hope to highlight the diversity of nearsighted guys out there, not just the pretty muscle boys doing selfies in the mirror (not that I mind them at all!). So look out for bears, chubs, older guys and more, all with one thing in common that makes them all wonderful.

Easiest way to keep up is to register on tumblr and then follow the blog, as I obviously won't spam everyone here each time I do a post.


bill 24 Jan 2014, 02:39

James,

Thanks mate for doing this. Number one is a great start. I like the angled shots showing lens edge thickness. Brilliant. More please.


GreginColo 23 Jan 2014, 14:53

Thanks James for the suggestion that AI singer could have removed his glasses for age 6 photo, as you said commonly done in earlier times. And thanks also for the "heads up" on your new guys with glasses blog; never too many of those in my my opinion especially if they bring up new photos not yet shared. And if your first guy with his mega Rx, (- upper teens ?) is an indication of what's to come, you will have a large following of those us who enjoy such excitement...


James 23 Jan 2014, 13:45

Hello fellow glasses lovers,

First thing: I wouldn't ASSUME the American Idol guy didn't have his glasses yet by 6. Remember that until the 2000's, glasses were very stigmatised, and there was a tendency for lots of people, kids included, to whip their glasses off whenever a photo was to be taken. In the case of kids, sometimes this was with the prompting of parents, and sometimes on their own steam. Many are the class photos I have where the myopes are sans glasses, staring, very blankly indeed, at the camera.

Second, as if there were not enough already, I have decided to start my own Tumblr on the theme of guys in glasses. The first post is up, and it's located here:

http://evenmoreguysinglasses.tumblr.com/


GreginColo 20 Jan 2014, 08:25

Thanks Julian; I noticed that also; I bet he must have started glasses pretty soon thereafter to have progressed to the Rx that he appears to currently have, which as you said is kind of hard to tell becasue of the quite reflective flat fronts.


Julian 20 Jan 2014, 05:37

Hmm. Kind of hard to judge because of the reflections from the plano fronts - but that in itself says quite a lot. You earlier estimate of 'upper single digit' AT LEAST. This guy is pretty blind. Interesting that in the shot of him aged 6 he doesn't have glasses.


GreginColo 19 Jan 2014, 23:08

Another John Fox (myopic AI contestant in Buddy Holly style glasses)with more closeups. Any Rx guesses?

GreginColo 19 Jan 2014, 10:11

I couldn't get the link to paste in but you may want to check out Youtube for American Idol contestant John J Fox, including his AI audition video. A handsome young Texan, good singing voice, and noticably myopic in has glasses.

He quite impressed the judges and you may enjoy him also as his lenses have significant flash and relection during his singing. I would guess upper single digit Rx. WhGreginColoat do you think? The next Buddy Holly?


tinyeyes 19 Jan 2014, 00:14

Myoptrix: Jeezus that's hot. Thanks for posting him! I would say -8 or above. This hunk looks great in his coke bottles, but might not have a career without powerful contacts.


GreginColo 18 Jan 2014, 14:56

Sorry Myotrix I mistyped your name; what happens when I work with a small keyboard and screen.


GreginColo 18 Jan 2014, 14:54

Thanks Myoptixn for the link. Quite the handsome guy in some quite real glasses; hard to tell the Rx without more of a front-view to see the cut-in, but from the power rings in his right lenses, I would have to guess upper single digits.


Myoptrix 18 Jan 2014, 11:45

Anyone want to guess the Rx of Craig Henningsen? the rise in myopia means that so many cute guys now are as blind as bats...

http://myoptrix.tumblr.com/post/73711033577/words-fail-me#notes


Dave 17 Jan 2014, 12:36

tinyeyes -- No need to worry about posting the link but such a shame that he was injured. Funny how capricious life can be.


tinyeyes 17 Jan 2014, 09:41

Yes, I should have mentioned that. It's very sad, and I hope I don't show disrespect by showing him with the glasses.


Dave 17 Jan 2014, 01:56

tinyeyes -- Agree with you re the heavy prescription; unfortunately, Ronny Keller was involved in an ice hockey accident last year and left a permanent paraplegic. A sad ending to a very good career.


tinyeyes 17 Jan 2014, 00:08

Check out this Swiss hockey player, who probably wears contacts during play (rather powerful ones.)

JP 14 Jan 2014, 13:59

Nice sighting, Gregincolo. What more could you ask for at the gym but to see "two otherwise nerdy, reasonably myopic guys" working out in person?


GreginColo 12 Jan 2014, 16:15

Not a great sighting; but still worth possibly worth passing on in case of interest to anyone else. Just got home from the gym and as I was there getting ready to climb onto a treadmill with a bank of tv screens in front of me, I noticed one of the screens had a photo of two younger (to me anyone under 40) nerdish guys, one Asian, one Caucasian, both in mid range myopic glasses, which caught my attention, so decided to stay tuned even though it was ESPN, where I usually don't spend too much time. After the requisite commercial(s), I learned they were the two finalists in some kind of a national or international bowling tourney so would next be competing with one another next, so I watched that during my treadmill run (or I should admit walk). There were some nice closeups of their faces so you could definitely notice some attractive power in their respective lenses. It was fun to see two otherwise nerdy, reasonably myopic guys in glasses, excel at a sport.


James 12 Jan 2014, 10:41

Tinyeyes could you give us the link to whatever account you got the pictures from (or give us his grindr/gaydar nickname ir whatever)?


bill 12 Jan 2014, 10:30

Tinyeyes, a perfect bear indeed. WOW!!!!


GreginColo 12 Jan 2014, 10:27

Thanks te for the additional pics and info on your latest gwtg guys; he has certainly stimulated some interesting discussion here. And thanks guys for your Rx guesses, I would now agree myEye guess was low and and agreeing with your low teens observations.


Tinyeyes 12 Jan 2014, 09:45

I posted more pics of the cub at guyswiththickglasses.tumblr.com. James, he's in California not far from me. Too bad he's not closer to South Africa, although I can only imagine the wealth of cute spexy guys you must have there!


bill 12 Jan 2014, 09:02

Definitely early teens Rx to have a swimsuit problem.


James 12 Jan 2014, 08:58

Greg, I'm terrible at guessing, but that level of cut-in makes it seem higher to me, like a -11 or 12 even.


GreginColo 12 Jan 2014, 08:53

So te, James, and Bill, we had some stimulating discussion about te's fantastic post of bear guy, but I've heard no guesses of his Rx. I am going to guess -9. What do you guys think? Reagrdless of what the actual Rx number is still so hot....., and I am usually not even a bears fan.


James 12 Jan 2014, 06:09

Indeed, Bill. Only way to cool down properly.


bill 12 Jan 2014, 05:26

Summer in South Africa, James. Lots of swimming I take it ??!!


James 12 Jan 2014, 05:23

Tinyeyes,

I'm in Cape Town, South Africa, and having no luck on the blind bears front sadly.

I'd definitely get on a plane for this guy though!


bill 12 Jan 2014, 04:39

This bear presses all the buttons.

Greg in your survey he would for sure be the number one for me


tinyeyes 12 Jan 2014, 02:18

Where do you live, James? Any luck finding blind-without-glasses bears?


James 12 Jan 2014, 02:06

SWOON. It figures. I love bears and even chubs. So much the betetr if they're ridiculously blind without glasses.


GreginColo 11 Jan 2014, 22:17

That's about the best cut-in photo I can recall seeing; the way you can see the sides (temples), front to back, both eyes, inside and outside; quite the intriguing photo. And thanks te for the additional info on the guy.


tinyeyes 11 Jan 2014, 19:58

Yeah, he has great cut-in, doesn't he?

He describes himself as 6'1", 240 lbs., and a bear. I'll see what else I can find out.


Gregin Colo 11 Jan 2014, 17:07

I'll certainly third that feeling. Super hot "cut-in" there.


bill 11 Jan 2014, 14:44

James I agree, wow


James 11 Jan 2014, 13:27

Tinyeyes,

This guys is doing things to me in my "swimsuit area" (as they say).

https://24.media.tumblr.com/ae1fa42f97f7d95df6ff9d57f3bb61e9/tumblr_mz8s44N7Of1r7g3sdo1_400.jpg

Any chance of some more of him? Do you know who he is?


rimless 11 Jan 2014, 10:45

Jo: how do we find you on Google+ if we want to add you?


GreginColo 11 Jan 2014, 08:56

Actor/comedian Bob Saget, appearing in his quite attractive mid-range myopic glasses, was on one of the late night talk shows last night. A Google search of him reveals a number of pics of him in his glasses, various frame styles, so not one of those celebrities who tries to conceal his myopia. Anyone have knowldge or a guess of his Rx?


Nicky 11 Jan 2014, 07:20

Celebrity Big Brother's Lee Ryan. Anybody know if he's full-time/wears contacts?

Jo 10 Jan 2014, 09:39

Guys, for those who add me, I suspect u need to first have a google plus account. I'm not too sure but I haven't figured out how the entire google plus thing works yet. It's a lot more complicated then fb, it seems to me.


GreginColo 10 Jan 2014, 08:24

Thanks James for the OKCupid post of significantly myopic guy (my guess mid teens minus) who doesn't mind talking about it or sharing photos of his eyes behind powerfully attractive lenses. Alas, as you mentioned, too bad he is straight but his profile will likely still be enjoyed by guys from ths site. Thanks again.

Thanks also Jo for the contact info.


Jo 10 Jan 2014, 07:30

HI All,

google plus is a mess, and I've somewhat managed to get it working, so for those who are keen, you can drop me an email iwannabemyopic@g.m.a.i.l.c.o.mÖ.


James 10 Jan 2014, 01:45

Here's an OKCupid profile for a seriously nearsighted (unfortunately straight) older guy:

http://2.instant.okcupid.com/profile/BP67?cf=profile

He even makes reference to having a high Rx and having "tiny eyes".


GreginColo 09 Jan 2014, 22:05

Saw quite a nice sighting tonite but probably wouldn't mean too much to anyone outside of the Denver CO TV viewing market. There's a quite handsome younger news anchor, named Kyle Clark, on NBC affiliate KUSA Channel 9. I always wondered if he wore contacts or not, but now I know as he was on screen tonite in noticably myopic glasses, and of course looked even more handsome than normal. I was with others at the time so couldn't get a real close look to try to make a guess of his Rx, but it was noticably attractive. You can Google him and see a photo w/o glasses, but I could find no photo of him in glasses. There are a number of guys by this name, but I think you will easily know who I mean as he is dressed like an anchor in the Google photos.


tinyeyes 08 Jan 2014, 22:30

Yep, Devo, the quintessential nerds! So, it's fitting that 2 of its members had significant myopia!


Myopic Grant 08 Jan 2014, 13:07

Mark was the frontman of the music group Devo, from the late 70's. Alan Myers the drummer of the band, who died last year, also had significant myopia.


GreginColo 08 Jan 2014, 07:02

Thanks James for your post.I had not heard of him before either, but sounds like a very talented man. His recap of his need for and first getting glasses was quite interesting, like many of us didn't know what we were missing out on vision wise. As you noted, there are many photos of him out there, always in glasses, so must not wear contacts.I weould guess his Rx -low teens. And yes the frames shown in your post are the most unusual I have ever seen. Thanks, Greg.


James 08 Jan 2014, 03:53

Not sure if anyone has heard of Mark Mothersbaugh (I hadn't) but he's a musician and composer with a substantial minus Rx and wears some wacky glasses. No rimless frames for him!

Here's him talking about his nearsightedness:

http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/lists/2010/01/five-notable-anecdotes-from-pastes-recent-intervie.html

And here's one of his more unusual frames:

http://devo-obsesso.com/html/gear_pgs/costumes/mark-eyewear.html

I'd definitely recommend a Google Image search for his name. Can anyone guess at the Rx once they've done so?

Tinyeyes, the deterrent is really the thought of migrating all the thousands of photos over, which is gonna be a chore. i was thinking the probably best way is for you guys to add me on google plus, and that way, i could have more control over who views the photos. I do not want to make public all the photos as some of the guys i have some form contact with, so I would still like to maintain a certain amount of privacy for them, lame as it sounds.


tinyeyes 05 Jan 2014, 16:51

Jo, maybe you could try Flickr?

tinyeyes 04 Jan 2014, 11:44

Yes, family portrait would be great. It sounds like the -32 guy got ICLs so he may not have the strong glasses anymore. Jo, are you preparing a new album of extremely myopic Asian guys? It's been a while.


Kevin 04 Jan 2014, 06:56

GreginColo 29 Dec 2013, 23:40

Thanks Tivo, for the second video. Glad you are back with us. In that second video when he bends his head down at various times, you can easily see the eye-popping thickness of his lenses, so I am thinking your -20 guess is quite close.


tivosesante 29 Dec 2013, 22:17

tivosesante 29 Dec 2013, 22:14

yes, those are my type when it comes to specs,would rather see them on one of my buddys here in tampa, but oh well and guess what another video of him reveals much better closeups and full shots of he and his super specs' and he has to be at least -20.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtAukQftJPw sorry about all the bad spelling and grammar, have been babbeling in Spanish for the last four monthes


GreginColo 29 Dec 2013, 12:43

Thanks te, great video, and super hot Rx; I would concur with upper teens Rx guess; quite significant the diops of correction in those powerful lenses. He speaks of wearing contacts since middle school, but likely glasses long before that, to progress to that kind of almost extreme Rx. Thanks again te for the hot post.


tinyeyes 29 Dec 2013, 12:31

In my prior post I suggested a look at the "12 Days of Christmas" story on the "Spexy and He Knows It" blog. The featured guy is also in the attached link. He is the younger one with the the stronger glasses that throw off a lot of nice reflection in the video. And BTW, the older guy doing the interview, wearing less powerful glasses, isn't bad either.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcFuL_CMInY


GreginColo 27 Dec 2013, 14:33

Agree,te, all the way around; there seems to be a consensus of the larger frames so far. It would be so fun, etc.., to help this guy pick out frames.

And BTW if you haven't done so you might want to check out the "Spexy and He Knows It" blog. The site owner has a special "12 Days of Christmas" stocking stuffer for us; a 12-oart story with photos.


tinyeyes 27 Dec 2013, 11:11

I also like the larger frames on the myodisc guy. What's even better than being with a guy with high minus glasses? Getting to choose which frames you want him to wear! ;-) And picking the ones that make him look more handsome and also look most coke-bottle/nerdy/power-ringed/etc.

I prefer the second one - but I wish he looked a bit happier in both of them!


GreginColo 26 Dec 2013, 12:53

Thanks much to the poster and site owner who supplied us with the two great photos of the myodisc guy. Both of these are quite hot, but yet with quite different looks. So a little one question survey now, for these two photos of the same guy, which is your favorite? I know its already quite hard to choose, but I guess I prefer his look in the larger frames, but certainly quite attractive in either. Your choice of looks?


GreginColo 26 Dec 2013, 12:46

Hope all who celebrate had a Merry Christmas. Just saw on TV a current but brief video clip of political activist Edward Snowden, who is of mid-range myopia and whose glasses were discussed when he first came to attention last summer. It appears during his stay in Russia that he has not been supplied with new glasses or contacts, as they looked pretty similar to his earlier video.

Well guys, luck has come my way and I can now reconnect to E/S from home computer after not being able to for a week or so. Maybe I had bad karma come to me for speaking out about Comfortably Zoned radio posts. Anyhow I want to use this window of opportunity to post the results of the final 2 survey questions.

The last two questions of the recent Guys in Glasses survey dealt with the general stimulation provided by this mutual interest in guys with glasses.

The first of those, #9, asks whatís the biggest turn on regarding guys needing vision correction. There were six potential responses quickly summarized as: 1) correctional dependence, 2) wishing to see thru the other guyís eyes, 3) the look of his eyes behind the lenses, 4) the general transformation of his appearance, 5) the off and on, in and out transitions, and 6) the general stimulation. There was also room for another answer which was the most popular, with 5 out of the 9 responses, where guys answered all of the above. Additionally, the dependency aspect received 2 responses, and one each for general transformation of appearance and the overall feeling of stimulation brought on by this attraction.


GreginColo 23 Dec 2013, 14:16

MG: I echo Julian's thanks for the link to another guys and glasses website. Some nice photos there.

JP 14 Dec 2013, 07:43

Sorry - That last pub story was from me.


 14 Dec 2013, 07:43

Out at the pub pub after work yesterday where there were two guys working behind the bar who wouldnít have caught my attention but for their glasses. Iíve noticed that few bar staff wear specs, which makes it all the more interesting when someone does.

The first guy had got a medium-strong plus rx in a small plastic frame. Although I wouldnít have chosen that frame myself, he wore the prescription well and looked suitably dependent on his lenses. He could easily have looked over his specs if he simply needed to speak with a customer while looking down at the drink he was pouring, but he didnít as he wouldnít have been able to look through those lenses. The result was a greater dependence on moving his head, rather than his eyes, in order to catch the view.

The second guy wore a somewhat hipster pair of black plastic frames; bold but rounded corners instead of the current high-fashion sharper top corners that are so popular for now. Again the frames wouldnít have had my attention but it was great to see a myopic barman at work. To improve things, he came over to my table to collect our (drinking) glasses, showing nicely-built and strong-looking arms, with a nice tattoo on his upper left arm.

A good week for sightings and for guys who wouldn't have caught my eyes but for their spex.


JP 14 Dec 2013, 07:32

A nice sighting the other evening at my local trade/hardware store. As soon as I arrived I saw that the two guys serving customers offered the choice of "Gorgeous" or "Glasses" and I felt interested in both. They use a single-queuing system so you don't know who'll serve you until you're called. Well the cuter guy had a cute jewel piercing in his left earlobe which caught my attention. But of course the guy with glasses had due attention too: His right lens had me thinking plano at first, but then I spotted a swirling low plus in his left lens which, unusually for me, I found attractive. His frames were big and bold and suited him well, as did his tattoos. He also had a piercing - a bar that passed twice through the top of his ear - which looked curved or bent, so not quite so much my thing. (Anyone else wonder about "the metal thing"? I like metal frames and metal piercing jewellery the most.) I decided that I'd like the guys with glasses to serve me but alas, I was called by the other guy.

However.... Having bought my bits and pieces, I realised that I'd missed an item and, with the queue having cleared, I went forward to get what I'd missed. Our guy with glasses had gone off somewhere but happily returned but (Who'd have thought it?) without specs. Well I looked at him twice, being sure that it was the same guy, and also disappointed that he'd lost his specs before serving me. Being a hardware store, it feels a bit "straight" to me, so I wasn't sure I could strike up conversation, but I realised that the change out of glasses gave me the perfect opportunity:

"Were you wearing glasses a moment ago?" I asked. "I'm sure it was you."

"I've taken them off" came the reply, "Getting ready to go home."

"I thought you must be the same person. I'm looking for new glasses so I notice them at the moment" which, of course, was a slight lie about "the moment".

By now I'd had a chance to read his name badge, which said "Daniel". He smiled and we went on talking, and it sounded like he'd recently got his specs. He explained that there are "different thicknesses of glasses" (by which it turned out he meant the frames rather than the lenses). He said he'd been looking for a "thin pair" but that all the frames that suited him were thick. And I have to say that these frames really did suit him. He said he'd spent a long time trying on different frames: "I tried on loads of glasses for 45 minutes before I got these." I agreed that I'd spend a long time myself, although I didn't say that I'd happily spend hours. I didn't find the courage to ask him where he'd got his specs, but enjoyed talking glasses and going out of my comfort zone in a place where I wouldn't say much that's personal. A really nice sighting.


David09 11 Dec 2013, 14:39

Greg great questions, nothing like a cute guy in glasses.


David09 11 Dec 2013, 14:38

Question 6) At what time in your life did become aware of your ďGuys in GlassesĒ interest?

2) Middle school (aka junior high)

Question 7) How significant is your ďGuys in GlassesĒ interest?

1) Itís an addiction

Question 8) What is your own Rx -6 and do you wish it were?

5) Like my current Rx, no desire for a change

Question 9) What is the biggest turn on to you about guys needing vision correction?

1) The dependence they have on their correction

2) Wondering how they might see you, and the world, without correction

3) The look of his behind his lenses (ie minification, magnification, etc)

4) The general transformation of his appearance

5) The transitions, ie glasses on/off, contacts in/out

6) Just the overall feeling of stimulation it brings


David09 11 Dec 2013, 14:32

Greg

Question 1: What need for visual correction do you prefer in a guy?

3) minus 5 to minus 10

Question 2: Do you prefer a guy:

1) primarily in glasses?

Question 3: If a guy is to the point of needing reading correction, do you prefer him with:

2) unlined bifocals (such as progressives)?

Question 4: Considering all the aspects of a guy, how important to you is his need for vision correction and how he accommodates that need:

1) quite important?

GreginColo 10 Dec 2013, 08:54

You are most right Julian, a better description for Dean Skye would have been "significantly" nearsighted as I would guess him close to double digits if not already there. I also like most the pics of him in the clear plastic frames. I have not watched that full video but in the still shots it shows him sometimes in glasses and sometimes not so it would be interesting to see just when he removes his glasses as he gives a massage to another guy also named Dean. But I agree his overall look is so very interesting and arrousing. Back for a moment to the video of him with farsighted guy, its inetersting not only how their vision is so different but also the look of their chests. I would prefer Dean Skye looks the whole way around.


Julian 10 Dec 2013, 06:33

Greg: Dean Skye - 'rather nearsighted'? I'd say that's the understatement of the year! Judging by the cut-in I'd say he guy is as blind as a bat. He has the most marvellous smile, dimples and all. I've had a look at several videos of him in different glasses and none, and to me the bareyed shots (or more likely in contacts) definitely lack something. There's one scene with brown plastic Armani frames, but to me the best of all shows him in clear plastic frames. To be sexy he should definitely be spexy.


bill 10 Dec 2013, 01:50

Greg,

Thanks for doing this survey. It will have given many people lots of enjoyment.


GreginColo 09 Dec 2013, 22:07

This part of the summary of the Guys in Glasses survey will ďfocusĒ on the Rx related questions, both the correction needed by those who chose to respond with that and also our preferences for other guys that we may be, or wish to be, in contact with.

Weíll start with question 5: ďWhen comparing to yourself, to you prefer a guy needing ÖÖÖ?

The overwhelming (11 out of 12) answer was needing more correction than oneself. One guy responded with similar correction need to self. No one responded that they would prefer a guy needing less correction than self or a different kind of correction (ie plus vs minus). Thus as we probably already know, for most of us the interest is not just the frames that are of interest, but also in the strength and power of the lenses that are needed to correct a guyís, or our own, vision. This was also confirmed by the next 2 questions. I will draw the conclusion that for most of us a great looking guy in fake glasses is probably less attractive to us than a more plain looking guy needing a rather powerful level of correction. Of course that is all relative to oneís own level of correction. Weíve probably all heard guys in the -3 or 4 range complain that they are ďblind as a bat w/o their glasses or contactsĒ. Try telling that to a guy whose Rx needs may be 2 or 3 or 4 or more times that.

That leads us into question 8: ďwhat is your own Rx and what do wish it wereÖÖ?Ē

There were 9 answers to this question and 6 of those supplied their own Rx, which went from 0 (plus readers) to -10. Of the 9 responses, only one guy wanted to keep his present Rx. One had a wish to switch from plus to minus. 4 guys have a desire for an Rx stronger than their own, including one guy already in double digit minus. The remaining 3 guys have a desire to revert back to a prior but stronger correction than their present, either due to lasik, or a lessening of myopia with age. Thus the general conclusion is that for the most part we like not only guys in strong corrections, but like that for ourselves also.

The question with the widest variety of answers was number 1 which asked ďwhat need for visual correction do you prefer in a guy?Ē There were 12 responses to this question. There were no responses for no correction needed or for modest nearsightedness ( ie 0 to minus 5). There was only one response for plus correction and that was for quite significant plus (15 or greater). The largest number of responses (4) was for moderate myopia (-5 to -10), followed by 2 for significant myopia (-10 to -15), with also 2 favoring severe myopia (-15 to -20) and 2 favoring extremely severe myopia (over -20). Thus the preference is definitely for myopic correction, with half of us being interested in -10 or greater correctional needs on a guy. This again tells us that for those of us with this interest and who took the survey, that glasses , or contacts, are not just a fashion accessory, but rather itís the real need for correction, and pretty strong at that, that brings on the rush for us. And I have a feeling that for many of us the stronger the correction, the stronger the rush.

Question 2 asked if you prefer a guy in glasses, contacts or back and forth?

Of the 12 responses, 9 preferred to see a guy in glasses, 1 in contacts, and 2 switching back and forth. We are fortunate to have some nice sites to give us some great photos and commentary for all of those, and a big thanks to those who host those, but from the results of this survey anyway, glasses rule, and that could be partially due to the visual stimulation they provide to a viewer that makes it easier to determine a guys Rx than with contacts. More on this will follow in the final writeup of the last 2 questions.

Question 3 about age Ėrelated near correction was probably a poorly worded question to begin with, but it still generated a full 12 responses. Half( 6) preferred lined bifocals, 4 preferred progressive glasses, and 2 preferred progressive contacts or adding readers as needed.

Thatís it guys for this post, but the summary seems to be that mid to high power minus glasses are what we prefer to see on other guys, and in general what we prefer for ourselves. The last 2 questions, which are probably truly the most stimulating, will be covered in another post.

Please add you own commentary and thoughts as you wish, including whether this was all just a waste of time or not. Thanks, Greg.


GreginColo 08 Dec 2013, 23:45

Well guys, the time that you have been waiting for (just kidding) has come. The results of the just for fun (and maybe a bit more) guys in glasses survey are in and so I will start sharing those with you. It may take a couple or 3 posts due to site word limits and my own time limits, and also my hope to make it more interesting for you than just a series of numbers and statistics. And a big thanks to all you of you who answered and or provided ideas and/or questions or questions. I'll try to start with the broader questions and then narrow down from there.

Question 7) How significant is your guys in glasses interest?

There were 9 responses to this question: 4 responded "its an addiction", and 5 responded "not an addiction, but close." No one responded "can take it or leave it" or "wishing to quit it." So for all of us who responded, it's an important part of who we are and how we spend our time and energy, be it on this site, some of the excellent sites of guys in glasses (or contacts) photos, or in personal communication or contact with similarly interested guys. Of course the survey is skewed in this direction, since a guys in glasses thread is where the survey originated. A good followup question might have been to ask how "out" are you about your guys in glasses interest. For me its always been a pretty secretive thing, and only recently have I been able to embrace this part of me and actually discuss with others, though presently limited to those who I have met on line with similar interest.

Question 6) at what time in your life did you become aware of guys in glasses interest?

There were also 9 responses to this question. The most common answer with 5 responses was "in grade school". So for more than half of us this fascination has been ingrained in us since early in life. The second most common answer with 3 responses was at the other extreme, ie later in life (post college). One response indicated middle school. Interestingly, there were no responses for high school or college, but maybe there were other more overwhelming personal issues going on at that time of life. I am not a statistician, but I didn't see any obvious correlation between how strong an interest is (ie addiction or near addiction) and when it began. A couple of guys indicated they could clearly remember their first awareness of their interest, and that is the case for myself also. The sharing of your history is always an interesting topic for this site so please do so if you wish.

Question 4: Considering all aspects of a guy, how important is his need for vision correction and his need to accommodate that?

There were 12 responses, 8 answered "quite important and 4 somewhat important. While there are other characterists of guys that are likely important for each us, (ie facial hair vs cleanshaven, ect, Ect, ECt, ECT....), the vision correction needs of a guy ranks high or top of that list. Again this is likely skewed by the nature of the site. But hey guys, isn't that what we all hope to find, if we haven't already?

That's it for now: 3 questions out of 10 summarized. I'll be back with more, as we narrow down the nature of the questions from broad to more specific, and possibly more stimulating. In the meantime, comments always are welcome, so please don't wait feel a need to wait until all the questions are summarized if there is something in this post that you wish to comment on. Thanks, Greg.


Gregin Colo 08 Dec 2013, 18:56

Thanks David for the nice post of the two male XXX actors. We have seen before some hot posts of Dean Skye, the rather nearsighted one, before. I am guessing his - Rx is significantly greater than the +'s Rx. It would be fun to watch them practicing their trade together, and see at what point, the glasses come off if they started with them on. The nearsighted guy may be wanting to see things a little more up close and personal while the farsighted guy may be using more touch and feel. And while its always hot to see guys swap glasses, and try to adjust to each others correction, in this case it would make each of their vision even much worse than uncorrected.

Thanks Tivo for your post also. I don't what the guy is talking about but still a handsome, fun to watch, mid-range myopic guy.

Here's one for the guys who like farsighted guys and the guys who like nearsighted ones. The video is of a guy who is farsighted and a guy who is nearsighted, both porn actors I believe. I am unclear, the farsighted guy says he can't see street signs without glasses but can see far away, also he said without glasses he had to put the print or book a certain distance, wasn't sure if he meant further away or closer. Just wondered.

I found him a pleasant chap, may have some what ever you call it ....... but who doesn't have some nuance, what about our Brazilian friend thyago, what a sweet heart; and he would sniff more than talk at times, but what ever, I'm not even a Christian, but I know where he's coming from, and futher more I never met anyone who didn't have some thing about them that I didn't like, but you know what will rogers said...his glasses are up there in the high double digits, I would say -18 or -19.......p.s., I moved out of the u.s. for many of the reasons that he outlined...mexico is far more civilized than the u.s....I don't even want or intend to go into that topic.......have a blessed day.......


 06 Dec 2013, 13:21

He has a lot of ticks that make me nervous and he's a bit uncomfortable to watch. Constantly moving around, snorting, clearing throat, and I hate when people talk in the third person. He definitely has the gift of gab, but has an abrasive personality, and could be viewed as arrogant. The problem with his dating life isn't his glasses; it's his personality. He is so radical and unbalanced, he probably dosen't even let women get a word in edgewise. Nice glasses though...


GreginColoEyescene 06 Dec 2013, 11:18

Thanks te for the post; definately an arrousing guy in his super strong Rx, espceially in the 2nd where he pulls his glasses off briefly and then replaces them.


tinyeyes 06 Dec 2013, 09:46

I'm not sure if this guy has been posted before, but he's attractive and has a great high minus prescription. As far as the content of his videos goes, they're very long and I haven't watched them all the way through, and I have a feeling he may say some offensive things. I'm just posting because he looks good.

Thanks Bill, yes the writing about such does bring that rush feeling, hence why I had such fun with the survey questions, and am sure to get an equal effect when I start to summarize the results. I hope others might get that rush also as they answered the questions, especially the final one from tinyeyes. What a stimulating question! If you, or other guys with myopic guy addiction (there I go previewing the results again),I am gbruny@hotmail.com. I must asdmit to being behind the times in technology so still have to log on to the internet to email.


Julian 04 Dec 2013, 09:37

Maybe I'm weird - or maybe I'm just a different kind of weird from the rest of you! I like guys in glasses, but the lenses don't have to be all that strong to attract me. The things that interest me most are the cut-in and the minification, not so much of the guys eyes as of what I can see behind him; then the power rings.

In connection with that, a question: with lower minus prescriptions, does the background minification appear before the cut-in? Or does it all depend on the viewing angle? There's a video of Elijah Wood on YouTube wearing his glasses, alleged to be around -5, with cut-in and minification appearing and disappearing as he moves his head; see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dPK5L7oboMs


bill 04 Dec 2013, 08:19

Greg, We obviously understand each other totally. The writing about the experience was almost as good as the real thing. I regret now not turning to him and chatting. But yes he was very myopic and I guess would normally wear reading glasses.


GreginColo 04 Dec 2013, 07:39

My apologies for the double post; I didn't think the first one took.


GreginColo 04 Dec 2013, 07:37

Thanks Bill for sharing your recent train experience; what a rush that must have been for at you at the time, and then again to write, and now for others to read and share a bit of that feeling. Too bad you didn't get more chance to talk with him. For those like me who live in the middle of the US where there is little public transportation, we miss those opportunities for such fine sightings, and more so converstaion due to being confined to a certain space. The young guy obviously was quite myopic but must have also had trouble accomodating his short term vision, already for a young guy. Thanks Bill for sharing this.

bill 04 Dec 2013, 03:46

As the recent posts are talking about what we find attractive about a guy in glasses allow me to share my recent train journey experience.

On the return journey at the weekend ,midway to home, a young man, a student, got on. As he walked down the carriage the cut-in and power rings were very obvious. Not myos, but I estimate high teens Rx with full frame lenses.

He sat in the seat alongside me. No guesses how I was feeling?!

First he took out his phone. He pulled his glasses down his nose, peered and squinted over the top of the glasses with the phone only inches from his eyes. I was very interested now!

Next an ipad came out. He did the same again but used a zoom setting to give really big print. He held the ipad with two hands and it was so close. By now I had to force my attentions elsewhere. I carry a set of -27D myos, which I bought in Asia years ago, in my pocket. I slipped them on and just enjoyed it all!

I wanted to chat to him and let him see my myos. As quickly as he arrived he got up and got off the train. Still for fifteen minutes or so I was in heaven.


bill 04 Dec 2013, 00:22

The one that really does it for me is B, the severe cut-in


Jo 04 Dec 2013, 00:04

In order will be BCD, A, F, E, of which BCD are equalÖ but generally, will be G.


tinyeyes 03 Dec 2013, 23:49

Yeah, I had the feeling that "all of the above" would be a common answer! I think it's the answer for me, too, but if I had to say, cut-in and power rings are the two most telltale things I notice that instantly make my heart skip a beat, on the right guy.


GreginColo 03 Dec 2013, 23:41

Thanks Bill for the response; I think a number of us share the rush from te's great rush provoking question.


bill 03 Dec 2013, 23:38

tinyeyes, it has to be response G to explain the rush I feel.


GreginColo 03 Dec 2013, 23:36

Thanks te; what a truly fascinating and stimulating question! For those who have already taken the survey pls. also respond to this question if you wish. That will give us an even 10 questions. And if you haven't taken the earlier two parts of the survey, pls feel free to respond to this one, and/or the earlier ones. I think this question truly captures and encases what it is all about for many of us. I must personally respond as G, all of the above, as all of these are so intertwined for me. Its a combination of the cut-in, flash, power rings and lense thickness that initially draw my attention to a high myope guy, depending on which direction I first view him from, and then the other factors come into play. The flash/reflection and power rings is probably the easiest for me to spot from quite a distance. I also like when a high myope older guy removes his glasses and puts his eyes within a few inches of what he is trying to read, similar to the overlook effect mentioned in the question. Thanks again te for the great question, which will hopefully stimulate some stimulating conversation.


tinyeyes 03 Dec 2013, 23:13

The talk about the eye size of the guy in the commercial brings up another survey question we could ask, for those who like minus lenses on guys:

What do you notice most about the glasses on a higher minus prescription guy?

A. How small his eyes look

B. The cut-in of the sides of his face

C. The "power rings"

D. The thickness of the lens edges and whether or not they're polished

E. Seeing how his eyes appear larger when looking over or not completely covered by the lens

F. The "flashing" effect of a flat (plano) front that's common with high minus lenses

G. All of the above


GreginColo 03 Dec 2013, 20:01

Re the guy from the insurance commercial, what an absolutely adorable look he has, so thanks tiny eyes for posting the screen shots also. I have probably already watched that video a dozen times or so and just can't get enough of him. And I think you are right te that his eyes would look much more tiny if he were not trying to act so surprised about running into the trash cans, which I must admit to also having done. I hope that really is his Rx and they just didn't put some high power myopic glasses on a model for effect. Then he really could see nothing but a very minified blur. Thanks again Trent for the wonderful post.

Re the survey; thanks for all the responses to date; it looks like there have been no new responses for a few days so I will start summarizing this weekend as time permits and see how alike and how different we are re our guys with glasses addiction (how's that for a little preview?). Thanks again guys, Greg.


tinyeyes 03 Dec 2013, 16:34

Well Trent,

That's funny to say, but I guess you're right that his eyes appear large.

He's definitely opening his eyes very wide for comic effect, and of course people's eyes come in all different sizes. If his eyes are on the large side, he's lucky, because his strong prescription is definitely minifying them quite a bit, based on the cut-in we see. He's at least -8 or -9, I would guess.

I guess my username makes it seem like I'm an expert on "tiny eyes", but it's just something I admire. I'm sure most here know this, but when eyes look smaller through a lens, it means that the person is seeing images minified just as much through the lenses, so he's seeing a sharp but "tiny" view of his world. That actually could cause problems with driving, especially if he's accustomed to wearing contacts and suddenly switches to glasses.

Maybe that's this guy's problem. :-)


Trent Tannenbaum 03 Dec 2013, 13:39

TE, That guy is cute, but don't you think it's odd that he has such big eyes considering that their behind minimizing lenses?


tinyeyes 03 Dec 2013, 10:04

Thanks for sharing the General Insurance commercial. That guy is seriously cute and very myopic! I put some screen shots of him on my blog for your enjoyment.

Myopic Grant 30 Nov 2013, 12:20

Trent Tannenbaum; Looks like someone is need of a new prescription. Maybe that's why his driving record is so bad.


Trent Tannenbaum 30 Nov 2013, 11:14

Hello,

I caught this commercial earlier for The General Car Insurance and noticed this guy's glasses. They seem like a strong prescription.

GreginColo 28 Nov 2013, 10:51

Ok guys, its Thanksgiving so I have a bit of extra time today, so put together, with some help, some ďextra creditĒ questions for the survey. For those of you have already answered the earlier questions, continue on if you wish. For those who havenít , pls feel free to chime in wherever you want. Again, this is an informal, unscientific survey out here just to have a little fun and help us better share and understand our common interest in guys needing vision correction.

Question 6) At what time in your life did become aware of your ďGuys in GlassesĒ interest?

1) Grade school

2) Middle school (aka junior high)

3) High school

4) College

5) Later in life

Question 7) How significant is your ďGuys in GlassesĒ interest?

1) Itís an addiction

2) Ok, not an addiction, but close

3) Can take or leave it

4) Wishing I could quit it

Question 8) What is your own Rx ______and do you wish it were?

1) Stronger, but same sign

2) Weaker, but same sign

4) Wish I could revert back to the strongest correction I ever needed

5) Like my current Rx, no desire for a change

Question 9) What is the biggest turn on to you about guys needing vision correction?

1) The dependence they have on their correction

2) Wondering how they might see you, and the world, without correction

3) The look of his behind his lenses (ie minification, magnification, etc)

4) The general transformation of his appearance

5) The transitions, ie glasses on/off, contacts in/out

6) Just the overall feeling of stimulation it brings

7) Other, pls specify____________________________

Thanks guys!


GreginColo 28 Nov 2013, 08:07

Happy Thanksgiving to Guys in Glasses friends in the USA and good wishes to the Guys in Glasses community around the world.

Thanks to the guys who have taken the survey. I think we are up to about a dozen responses now. In a little sneak preview of the results, its almost unanimous that our guys prefer other guys who have an Rx stronger than their own, but of course that'ees all relevant to each of our current scripts which eould have been a good question to ask along with a couple of others that I think would generate some stimulating discussionm, so there msy be a round 2 of the survey for those wanting extra credit. Stay tuned.

And James I agree, as to the annoying irrelevance of the Comfortably Zoned Radio posts that show up on this thread, and others, of this site.


James 28 Nov 2013, 03:58

Nice to see the Comfortably Zoned Radio Spammer back (not!).

So here are my poll answers

1) 3 - he must be super nearsighted but not to the level where he has low vision or is disabled by it

2) 3 - ideally he has to wear his glasses often because he can't wear contacts for long but is not totally comfortable in them or a bit shy

3) 2 - the line is a turnoff, not sure why

4) 1 - my Rx is low, so he must be way more nearsighted than me

Thanks for the poll Greg

Hi Alex, welcome to the site and thanks for taking the little survey. It will be fun to get it all tabulated and see collectively where our interests are similar and diverse. Your communication was great, so please no concerns about your English. It's just a group of guys who enjoy sharing a common interest in guys needing vision correction; I am trying to be generic here so as not to influence the glasses vs contacts question on the survey. All kdding aside, sincere welcome. Greg

Hi all i'm a newcomer here,as many of you i like guys obviously with glasses,i'm from Italy as my nick says and well i'll continue next time to talk about me because now i have to do this survey very interesting to start well my presence here

PS i would like very much to answer every questions you have for me and sorry for my bad English

so here are my answers:

Q1 3 because it's a perfect gap for glasses on a guy

Q2 1 well i don't believe this need to be explained

Q3 1 because i find bifocals so funny and sexy on a guy

Q4 2 because glasses are very importante but not all

Q5 1 this requested a little of thinking about


GreginColoGre 27 Nov 2013, 08:01

Thanks guys for taking the survey for those of you that did. I had fun putting it together and so hope you also enjoyed. There were a couple of additional questions that came to mind later that I wish I had included so maybe we'll do it again sometime. I'll let it go for a bit longer and when responses stop coming in will do a tabulation and kind of do a litttle summarization of how we are alike but different in our fondness for guys needing vision correction.

Q1) 3. Most often 3, but more shortsighted would be exciting if he carries it off well.

Q2) 1. Glasses all the way!

Q3) 4. Removing his glasses gives lots of opportunity to see him fiddling with them. Otherwise contacts would be good to allow full-time wear of his glasses.

Q4) 1. He's gonna look hotter with the right glasses.

Q5) 1. I want to take in the impenetrable strength of his glasses.

Thanks guys who already have answered my (hopefully for you) fun little survey. '

I guess I should also share my own answers as follows:

Q1) 4; but could swing a little either way on this

Q2) 1; yep, still like the glasses look and feel the best

Q3) 1; up close, and maybe personal, still like the bi's

Q4) 1; yep, its what puts it (him) over the top for me.

Q5) 1; anything with a minus sign in front of it is better than my self-induced boring Rx;

Thanks again guys I am recording your responses and will tabulate on or around Dec 15; but far minus fascination way in the lead.

GreginColo 25 Nov 2013, 09:32

Oops, failed to include the last question in the little poll (see below) so here it is:

5) When comparing to yourself, do you prefer a guy:

1) needing more visual correction than you?

2) needing less visual correction than you?

3) needing about the same visual correction as you?

4) needing a different type of visual correction than you (such as nearighted vs fasrsighted)?

Sorry I forgot this in the original post but thought it an interesting question for converstaion so wanted to include.


GreginColo 25 Nov 2013, 09:11

This is a very unscientific poll undertaken just for the fun of it. It will run thru 12/15 and then results will be posted shortly thereafter. It may show up on several different sites to help increase participation.

For those of us guys who have a fascination for other guys in glasses, please think of how you would like a guy, be he your partner, boyfriend, casual encounter, dream date, or just the guy next door or at the gym.

Question 1: What need for visual correction do you prefer in a guy?

1) no correction needed

2) 0 to minus 5 (ie modestly nearsighted)

3) minus 5 to minus 10

4) minus 10 to minus 15

5) minus 15 to minus 20

6) over minus 20 (extremely nearsighted)

7) 0 to plus 5 (ie farsighted)

8) plus 5 to plus 10

9) plus 10 to plus 15

10) over plus 15 (quite farsighted)

11) modified need for correction (such as GOC)

Question 2: Do you prefer a guy:

1) primarily in glasses?

2) primarily in contacts?

3) back and forth between the two, depending on the setting/activity?

4) bare-eyed whenever functionally possible?

Question 3: If a guy is to the point of needing reading correction, do you prefer him with:

1) lined bifocals?

2) unlined bifocals (such as progressives)?

3) bifocal contacts?

3) switching as needed (ie readers over contacts,switching between glasses, etc)

Question 4: Considering all the aspects of a guy, how important to you is his need for vision correction and how he accommodates that need:

1) quite important?

2) moderately important?

3) not too important?

Remember guys, this little survey has no scientific importance, especially given the nature of the site(s), but is rather being put out there just to have some fun, compare notes, generate some discussion, etc. so please respond as you can and with any commentary you wish. I may try and post it on a couple of related sites, owners willing, to help increase participation. Thanks for your time and have fun.


James 22 Nov 2013, 23:51

This is a new guy I've discovered on Cam4. He has a great Rx in a hipster frame, so nice cut-in. He's on right now.

GreginColo 18 Nov 2013, 21:37

You're right Julian, he does appear to have 3 different pairs, all the same shape, so thanks for correcting my earlier comment about a single worldwide pair. Most of the clips show the silver stripe at the bottom of the frame, but there are some that don't, especially near the end and it looks like there may be a couple of versions of frame w/o the silver section at the bottom. Any guesses on his Rx?; appears to be pretty moderate.


Julian 18 Nov 2013, 20:46

Greg: it seems to me the guy wears at least two different pairs of glasses, maybe three, all the same shape. Also, I'v watched twice and didn't hear him mention Afghanistan - a place well worth avoiding these days ::(


GreginColo 18 Nov 2013, 15:14

Thanks for the video JP; what a well traveled guy and probably the most traveled pair of glasses ever; looks like he had the same pair the whole time, but hopefully took a spare with him as well, as it looks like a strong enough Rx that he wouldn't have functioned very well in this adventure had he lost or broken is glasses. Anyhow, quite a fun video and many thanks for sharing.


JP 18 Nov 2013, 14:23

It's always exhilarating to compliment a guy on his specs and to have a positive response. I love that.

Here's a guy who puts his glasses at the forefront of his film: http://www.buzzfeed.com/danmartin/this-is-what-every-single-country-in-the-world-looks-like-fo


Julian 14 Nov 2013, 06:42

Well done Greg! I very rarely have the nerve to compliment a guy on his glasses, but I never regret it. They're always pleased.


GreginColo 13 Nov 2013, 21:31

I had a very stimulating sighting this evening that I thought worthy of sharing. I dropped by the neighborhood grocery on the way home from work to pick up a few things that were going to go off sale today. As I walked in, I noticed an attractive male checker that I had never seen before, made even more attractive by obviously thick and strong glasses. So I hurried to get my purchases before he went off duty or otherwise out of the checkout counter. Fortunately he was still there so I made sure go get in his line even though there were others with fewer people. He had light brown/dark blonde hair and has an overall great look but the glasses, reminiscent of Buddy Holly style, took him completely over the top for me.

He seemed fairly friendly with the customer ahead of me, so I decided to compliment him on his glasses after the normal greetings between a cashier and a customer. So I said, hey man I really like your glasses and they way they look on you. He said he hasn't been able to wear his contacts recently so decided to get some new glasses. I again said that they looked great on him and he said it was just blind luck as he picked them out rather blindly as he was without any glasses or contacts when he picked them out. He just knew he wanted large scale heavy Ray-Ban plastic frames so had one of the options guide him to that section of frames. I asked him his prescription and he quickly replied -9. I wanted to carry on the conversation but knew there were others waiting, so thanked him for his time and friendly service. I left the store with a new found sense of stimulation and will no doubt return and hope to catch him again to see this handsome man in gorgeous and strong glasses.


Cactus Jack 12 Nov 2013, 13:42

Myopic Grant,

It probably would not be very difficult or painful to remove that type IOL. I doubt they are clever enough to roll it up and remove it through an incision like they made to insert it. The lens fits between the iris and the crystalline lens capsule and unlike IOLs used in cataract surgery where the replacement lens fits inside the crystalline lens capsule, it is unlikely that anything, like the back membrane of the lens capsule, attaches itself to it.

I think the lens that was installed is made of collagen to minimize chances of rejection, and it could easily be cut into strips and the pieces removed, should it be necessary.

When I had cataract surgery, I asked the doctor how they would remove my IOLs, once they unrolled, if something went wrong. He said that they had some tiny scissors to cut up the lens so they could get it out through a small incision, but that it had to be done within a few days, before the back membrane of the capsule attached itself to the lens. If that had occurred, then they would have to remove the lens capsule and the lens and my only choice then would be to wear very high plus cataract glasses.

I too wish they had mentioned his Rx before and after the surgery. It would not be surprising if he did not see very clearly right after the surgery. My vision was very good the next day after the surgery, but I had to wait 30 days to get a final Rx for my glasses. Most likely to let the cornea heal and any astigmatism affected by the healing process to stabilize.

C.


Myopic Grant 12 Nov 2013, 12:28

I hope he never has to have the lenses replaced. He is only 24. Having them inserted is one thing, but it looks like it would be hard and painful to have them removed.


GreginColo 12 Nov 2013, 08:33

Thanks te for the video; as you say bittersweet for those of us who like to see guys in thick glasses, but he seemed happy with the surgery so glad it was a successful outcome in that regard. It would have been interesting to know his presurgery Rx, which was called severe. BTW I go Eye Dr myself today for annual exam.


tinyeyes 12 Nov 2013, 01:26

24-year-old guy receives ICL surgery for his high myopia. We get to see him for just a fleeting moment in his thick glasses. Videos like this are bittersweet to watch, but I keep looking for them anyway. At least ICL is reversible, because it's a contact lens implanted inside the eye -- he is still just as nearsighted as ever under the contact lens. I search for ICL because it is usually used for higher prescriptions than Lasik.

Greetings from Hong Kong, thanks for bringing up the conversation upon our very secret fascinations. Speaking for myself I have an asorted set of fetishes: Very thick eyeglasses, men with smooth or shaved legs, feet and sandals and men that suffer from polio sequels and that have to use leg braces and crutches to move around.

As for this last fetish I have found that the heterosexual side is highly developed, there are even web sites promoting female models with such condition. And where I am currently living there is a huge array of beautiful women like that. But for us gays I have found that there is no opportunity to find such men as the males who suffer that condition seldom would like to be categorized with the homosexual sector of the population.

You can say they don't want to be discriminated against two times.

Oh well. that's just me sharing some of my deepest decires.


Lurking 11 Nov 2013, 23:09

For me the main fetishes are very, very thick glasses and going barefoot. Preferably both at the same time.


tivosesante 09 Nov 2013, 07:02

like to get in on the conversation about different fetishes, i.ll speak to my own which are three major ones, one being glasses, two boots, and three men with various disabilities, the list could go on, as for example various parts of the male body like legs, breast, not the sex organs at all ironically nor the buns, but overall the human male body I find exciting and the face is it, upon which I can with my imagination affix glasses and likewise boots to the legs.....all in all I believe fetishes are god's toys for us to play with, and the important thing is to remember who gave us these toys and be grateful and validate a higher power that so endowed us with such undying facinations........

Regarding the discussion that emerged when Jo raised his recent questionÖI began to mull over Julianís comment about liking a man with nice legs. It led me to wonder how many of us have an additional fetish, and if there is some close association with the glasses one. Iím just curious if you might have an additional fetish that may not rival the glasses one, but certainly perfects (to borrow the term from Julian) the experience of being with a glasses-wearing, nearsighted man?

My apologies if this discussion has been raised earlier/elsewhere.

http://guyswiththickglasses.tumblr.com/image/65335762314 Does anyone know what brand of glasses these are? Notice how the hinges vary at each temple.


Julian 03 Nov 2013, 18:08

James and JP: although you don't exactly agree with each other, I'm inclined to agree with both of you:

1. I like guys who wear glasses; but then I also like guys with nice legs. A guy with nice legs who wears glasses is perfection!

2. I'm also turned on by the squint as a myopic guy tries to focus. And I have a photo of a young guy reading a paper, his glasses discarded on the table, and the paper just that bit closer to his eyes than normal - delicious.

Incidentally I've just been watching an old edition of the quiz programme Blockbusters which I mentioned recently on 'Julian's jottings'. the single contestant was a very handsome boy wearing minus glasses. When he had to read letters on the board there was just the hint of a squint that said he was due for a new prescription - again, delicious!


JP 03 Nov 2013, 05:38

Regarding Jo's nightmare(!) prospect of a world without glasses, and James's helpful response, I don't imagine that glasses fetishists would've been sexless in a world before specs, but simply that our sexualities would have taken different forms.

James touches on the multi-faceted nature of our interest(s): The need of the wearer, perceived dependence, the lenses, the frames, the way he uses, touches, wears and moves his specs, his intimacy with them, his life and vision with/without glasses, his beauty to others, and so on.

Since we're talking about not only glasses, but men with glasses, we know that there's more to these attractions than simply the specs. I suppose in another (glasses-free) world, we'd still like the guys, but the specific interest within that category would necessarily lie elsewhere.


James 02 Nov 2013, 13:26

On Jo's question, I suspect in my case that if I had lived in a pre:glasses world, I would probably have been turned on by guys who were clearly nearsighted. I'm even turned on by that today ie guys who clearly need correction but don't have any. It's a lesser thrill for sure, but still a turnon.


GreginColo 02 Nov 2013, 11:21

Thanks James, I was also having trouble understanding the relevance of Gus' posts to this site.

GreginColo 01 Nov 2013, 14:43

An interesting question Jo, something I often wondered myself, especially in terms of what attracts us to this particular aspect, ie the need for visual correction, of another person, specifically for myself in other guys. I am guessing if everyone was born with, and maintained, perfect vision, then we never would have known about the need for visual correction and never developed this specific fascination, but instead it likely would have something else that distinguishes various people from one another. For me this fascination goes back almost as long as I can remember, although only more recently have I become more accepting and open with it. Being fairly myopic myself for much of my life, I thought it was maybe related to that. However, that may not be the underlying cause, as I has lasic correction about a decade ago which I subsequently regret, not because of visual issues, but because of emotional issues. Pre-surgery, I wondered if the the fascination would go away when I was no longer myopic myself. That proved not to be the case and likely the fascination has gotten even stronger, although I now feel somewhat strange, possibly even guilty, in not being able to share in myself something that I find so fascinating in other guys. I suppose it's one of those mysteries of life that we can enjoy but never fully understand or explain. Sorry for the ramble...


Jo 01 Nov 2013, 12:25

Very random. But I was just thinking what if we were born in an era before glasses were invented? Would we become sexless ( for lack of a better word) bunch of people? I for one, has never had sex with a non glasses wearer nor can I imagine myself doing it.


GreginColo 31 Oct 2013, 22:17

Not a strong script, by any stretch, but always pleasing to see a guy wearing any minus for close-up work, and enjoying the thought of his eyes working hard to overcome the lens power.

Thanks MG for the video post; after you get past the movie scenes, the enthusiastic reviewer provides some of the best lenses reflection I have ever seen. You can hardly see his eyes with all the flash going on with his lenses. They appear to be flat fronted, and I would agree with the -7 to -10 range mentioned. He does a couple more reviews also, same glasses,even same shirt. Thanks for turning us on to this video.


tivosesante 28 Oct 2013, 07:06

yes, greg, I would say about -18 or -19 and thanks myopic grant, I would say he's a little higher than -7, maybe -10...?


Myopic Grant 28 Oct 2013, 01:20

Thanks te for the post of this guy (Josh) who is very myopic, funny and inspirational. It's long but worth the watch, even if it takes a couple of viewings to complete. We all have our challenges that we have worked through, or are working on, but this guy is a great example of how to how to step up and work thru life's challenges. Plus the flash and reflection from his strong lenses add some additional appeal for those of us interested in such, as probably many of the viewers of this thread are.


tinyeyes 24 Oct 2013, 23:42

I've heard of and posted about Josh Hanagarne, The World's Strongest Librarian, before, but somehow I didn't realize he had Tourette's syndrome. It's very much in evidence in this long video interview, which is neither here nor there but worth mentioning. Very interesting guy, and you certainly get to see plenty of Josh in his wonderful thick glasses.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdz3ugIDzyA


GreginColo 20 Oct 2013, 23:56

Agree, he looks great in his glasses, and I think your -8 is probably pretty close given the look of the glasses. If he were only -4, he probably wouldn't be making such a big point about his vision being so bad.


tinyeyes 20 Oct 2013, 22:32

I agree, his RX looks more like -8 or so. Sometimes people (especially if not OOs like us) forget their numbers or get them confused. One thing for sure -- the glasses really enhance his looks!


GreginColo 20 Oct 2013, 21:13

Thanks te for the links. In the narrative he mentions his vision as being 20/300, which I think translates to a -4 or so Rx; is that correct since his glasses appear to be quite bit stronger than that? as te mentioned. There are probably more high myopic athletes than we realize, though I don't follow any specific players myself, but always enjoy the pictures of them in glasses. Thanks again for the post.


tinyeyes 20 Oct 2013, 19:55

This might belong also in the Athletes thread. I think Jake Peavy, major league baseball player, has been mentioned there before, but I'm not sure if I'd seen a picture of him in glasses before. His prescription is quite strong!

Scott 17 Oct 2013, 11:40

In London today, 6 foot tall, short light brown hair, late thirties, wearing those smoothed out blended myodisc lenses, black metal frames that didn't really suit him.

So with a few minutes to kill I followed him into a bar.

Without any vocal communication he bought a beer, sat down and and swapped to a black plastic myodisc pair of glasses.

Which, after a moment or two, he removed the glasses and held his phone almost touching his cheek.

He then used his nose to operate the phone. It appeared that one eye was blue and the other eye seemed an almost opaque grey/ white colour.

He also wore hearing aids and used a red-white cane.

The owner of the "Spexy and He Knows It" blog has put together a very nice You-tube video commemorating the 1st anniversary of his blog. The video features many of the guys he featured each week for the past year. There is a nice mix of guys in the video, the common theme being the glasses they wear, of mixed Rx's from some plusses to a mid 20's minus. Our thanks to the person (not me) behind this blog and we look forward to what he will have for us in his second year. The first guy of the year, Juan, is certainly a myopic stunner, as mentioned in an earlier post. Keep up the good work! Hope the link below works.

If you are a myopic guy fan, you need to check out the "Spexy and He Knows It" blog. For the start of its second year, the blog owner, who features a new guy each week, is treating us to a cute double digit myopic guy who has offered up a number of close-up pictures in his high Rx glasses, as well as some open conversation about his vision and glasses. Some great material here.... including a couple of videos, one of which is about him trying to find his glasses in the morning. I am guessing many of us would welcome the chance to help him.

I read an interesting piece in the NYT about mugshots, and how once you have one, it's almost impossible ever to get it off the net (even if you're just arrested and never charged, or exonerated). Anyway, being the OO I am, I of course went over to one of the most popular mugshot search sites, and decided to do some catchword searches for glasses. Yowza! Some seriously myopic people are getting arrested!

Another video you might enjoy, similar in Rx to the one tinyeyes recently posted.

Comedian Dave Labenz showing the cut-in effect of his double digit lenses. He was one of the featured guys, and we saw and learned a lot about him on the "Spexy and He Knows It" site, which featured him for a full week, with some intruiging stories about his "growing up nearsighted", and some encounters which left him without his glasses for a bit.

Congratulations to the "Spexy and He Knows It" site on celebrating its first anniversary and bringing us 52 weeks of spexy guys, some of which are significantly myopic. Thanks to the owner of this site and the time and effort he puts into it, for the rest of to enjoy.

Yep tinyeyes and Greg - Santino Rice has nice cut-in. Would love that rx!

(PS Haven't been here much lately, so looking forward to catching up.)


GreginColo 04 Oct 2013, 15:05

Thanks tinyeyes for the video post, a fun video of a cute guy with with a strong Rx, which you can really see at the end of the video where the closer-ups show the significance of the cut-in, as well as the reflective flash you see throughout the video.


tinyeyes 04 Oct 2013, 10:03

I shared a pic of Santino Rice, fashion designer and reality TV personality, a couple of years ago. Check out his homemade video with dog. He looks great in glasses, and his RX has got to be close to -12.

In case you have access to the Sept 16, 2013 issue of Fortune Magazine, there's a fantastic full page (Pg 154)pen and ink illustration of US Treasury Sect'y Jack Lew (sure wouldn't want his job right now.) Anyhow, this is probably the most detailed facial illustration I have ever seen, especially the way it shows the strong Rx in his myopic glasses, including the capture of the significant power rings. Often when an illustrator puts glasses on people they appear to have plano lenses, but that is sure not the case with this illustration. It really captures the strength of his minus Rx. Sorry I couldn't figure out how to provide you a link to this.


tivosesante 28 Sep 2013, 16:26

GreginColo 28 Sep 2013, 16:24

Thanks -14 for the post and Wow those are the certainly the most powerful myopic lenses I have ever seen; too bad not more closeups of him; Any guesses on Rx, -30 or more? I'll have to watch that again.... the theater and organ music are nice also. Thanks, Greg.


astigmaphile 28 Sep 2013, 16:24

This is the first person in years that I have seen wearing minus lenticular glasses. I am well aware that many people here use them GOC. The last person that I saw here in Santa Barbara, Ca was a lady from Mexico that worked at a local Vons grocery store.

The Morton organ is interesting since most were WuliTzers. The one in our local 1931 movie palace is a Morton.

Just caught the end of a Samsung tv ad for their HDTV television; what caught my attention was a very handsome medium range myope guy sitting on the couch, evidently watching tv; there was another guy standing in the background. AS mentioned I just caught the end of the ad and wish I had watched it more closely once I saw this. If anyone has seen this ad and knows how to link to it, it would be worth a post. Thanks, Greg.

correction greg, that is not john, this chap refers to himself as mr1695 in the form of a user name on utube.....he is a computer geek and has literally put out hundreds of videos, many with his old glasses....john is my friend in tampa, whom I used to walk to work with....I will upload a bunch of pics and videos of him on tumbler and post the site......


GreginColo 20 Sep 2013, 00:30

Tivo; thanks for the posts on John; I'm not sure if you know him personally or through his videos. Either way, its interesting to see him in his old glasses (with what appear to be bi-focal lines) and then enthused, and willing to share that, about his new hi-index, transitional glasses, which are indeed thinner, despite his significant myopic Rx. In the old glasses video, despite what appear to be bifocal lines, he seems to read above his glasses, ie uncorrected, to see his phone screen, at a very close range as would expected with his Rx.

There's also another video of him out there where he talks about completely losing his sight for a period of time due to retinal swelling; fortunatley, per his video, that self corrected and he was back to his normal vision of significant myopia. It's admirable now easily he talks about his visual

challenges.

Nathan, thanks for sharing the exciting sighting that you recently had.

Just seen a bifocal myodisc wearer, asain, 5foot4, early 20s looking like a uni student. Bifocal myodisc glasses were black plstic, thick frames, thick arms and really tinted lenses. Later he swapped to a clear (non tinted) pair with metal frames that really did not suit his skin tones, that had single vision non- blended myodusc lenses. He seemed to really struggle with these.

I love London

Cactus Jack 13 Sep 2013, 21:57

GreginColo,

Very hard to tell. Maybe low minus or low plus with a bit of BO prism. A small amount of BO prism will cause the appearance of cut-in, but be very hard to see. Even 5 BO in each eye would only cause each eye to turn inward about 3 angular degrees and shift the iris inward only a tiny amount. I don't feel like doing the trig right now, but I would guess less than 1 mm, I would SWAG about 0.5 mm for 5 BO, but don't hold me too it. Even 1 mm is too small to see looking at a straight on facial picture.

C.


GreginColo 13 Sep 2013, 21:39

I found the cute guy in the attached post fairly intriguing. At first glance, I thought he was wearing plus lenses the way his eyes look so big, possibly a magnified look. But looking closer, he appears to be wearing some fairly moderate minus lenses based on the cut-in you can see in the photo. Any thoughts?

http://guyswithglasses.tumblr.com/post/61071234618


James 13 Sep 2013, 15:18

Some may remember Thorsten Schaefer Guembel, the minor German politician with the -16 diopter (and I've now learnt prism as well) glasses.

He's campaigning again for regional office, so there is a wealth of Google images to be had.

I also came across an article that goes into more depth on his Rx and experience of detached retinas in both eyes as a 20 year old.

Here is a rather bad Google translation (but you'll get the gist):

Thanks James for the post; many pics of him with, as you mentioned, a whopping Rx squeezed into tiny frames.

Nazir Afzal is (I think) the chief prosecutor in the UK. He has a whopping minus Rx and has clearly gone the tiny frames route.

tivosesante 06 Sep 2013, 05:42

yeas greg, these guys have some of the strongest glasses I have ever seen, particularly john and Antonio, they both are in the range of the high 20's.....on many occasions I have borrowed their glasses thru image manipulation to produce what I call high myopic male figures by placing their glasses on another face.....john for example is not all that good looking but has a very nice tall and erect body with a very pleasant kind of amble when he walks.....Antonio is not physically appealing to me but his glasses are almost an inch thick, one lens being a bit stronger than the other....and then Elijah with his -20 in the left eye....I will post a pic of the three of them together on my tumbler.....


tinyeyes 04 Sep 2013, 22:11

Tivo, I took a look at your blog. I can re-blog some of your posts on mine if you want. But I don't think it's possible right now with your preferences. Or, let me look back at what you sent via the Tumblr email and I can post something from there, maybe. Thanks.


GreginColo 04 Sep 2013, 21:47

Thanks James for the additional posts of James Taranto; I certainly agree that the shimmer and flash of his high power glasses in the first video is quite enticing, to put it mildly.

While not the myope powerhouses (or should I say power-rings) of James Taranto or Scott Shane (x2), also worth a post is Ian Ayres, accomplished scholar, author,economist and lawyer. No kidding, his resume is 24 pages long, but related to this post, also quite handsome in his mid-range myopic glasses. Other pictures show him w/o glasses, so he must wear contacts at times. Interesting also that among the wide topcis of his writings are some dealing with gay rights.

Thanks also Tivo for your post. I don't know where you find glasses as amazingly strong and thick as those being worn/modelled on your site. I am guessing many of those are -20's and up. Wow.

Hope the below link to Ian Ayres works. Regards, Greg

James 04 Sep 2013, 16:28

Wow Dave, thanks for putting me onto James Taranto. I've been in a James Taranto shaped internet hole ever since.

Cannot get enough of his flashing ice cube glasses in this video. He should've sprung for AR coating!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwmbvaYrlB4

Of course most of what he is saying is repulsive, but these glasses are also enticing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RniGFvOhmI

In this one he's in his mega-strong contacts (which cannot feel comfortable in the eye) and immediately has to whip on the reading glasses:

tinyeyes 04 Sep 2013, 10:16

Thanks for the links on James Taranto and both Scott Shanes. They have awesome prescriptions and glasses! Both definitely in the double digits and could probably use each other's glasses in a pinch. I like how James seems to switch back and forth between contacts and coke-bottles.


tinyeyes 04 Sep 2013, 10:12

TIvo, I have seen some of your messages and pics on Guys with Thick Glasses Tumblr blog, but the message system there doesn't work well for me. Usually it doesn't seem to allow me to reply, and sometimes I don't even see the messages until much later.

GreginColo 03 Sep 2013, 19:36

Thanks Tivo for the post; there actually appear to be two Scott Shanes, both pretty myopic judging from the strength of their glasses, quite noticeable in their Rx. I think the one you posted the pic of is an Economics Professor, and the other one is the NY Times journalist. At first I wondered if they were the same guy with a couple of pretty different looks, the main similarity being their glasses. But I think they are two different guys, who happen to have the same name and both with fairly hefty minus Rx glasses; quite a coincidence. I posted some links but they seem pretty long so may not work so it might be easier just to Google Scott Shane images and you should get pics of both of them. Any Rx guesses on one or both?

Sorry for another post so soon, but just turned on the TV and on his MSNBC show "The Last Word," Lawerence O'Donnell was doing an interview with James Kurchick; see earlier post by Eyescene contributor James. On the MSNBC interview, he was also wearing his glasses and was as cute, insightful, and I might add heroic, as in the earlier video posted to Eyescene. I didn't see the full interview so hoping I can keep awake for when it replays in a couple of hours.

Not sure how many people noticed the story of reporter James Kirchick in the last day or two. He went on a Russia Today panel, ostensibly to talk about Bradley Manning, but instead went on a brilliant off-message rant about homophobia in Russia, before being cut off.

Of course, he was wearing glasses in a not huge but definitey necessary and noticeable Rx.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57599641/activist-reporter-james-kirchick-takes-on-russias-anti-gay-laws-on-russian-funded-network/

From the few Google images I could find, he seems more of a devotee of contacts, so we should consider ourselves lucky he wore glasses yesterday.

JP 18 Aug 2013, 11:21

Visiting a store this afternoon, I had the choice of two checkout queues: One with the better-looking guy, and the other with the speccy-guy. Of course I chose the latter, and his glasses didn't disappoint. I could see from afar that his prescription was strong, and it was clearly in double digits.

His frames were small (perhaps 45 mm lens width) but the lenses projected far behind the rims, as well as in front. I'd say 12 mm thick and safely into double figures. A fairly standard frame, but with nice moderately wide plastic temples adding a bit of style. He was young, so I guess his myopia started in childhood and progressed through adolescence towards its current dizzy heights.

I noticed that this guy read my payment card and receipt closely, so I guess he piles on the eyestrain whenever he reads anything else too.


Cactus Jack 17 Aug 2013, 09:51

GreginColo,

You are correct. Pinholes or even glasses or contacts, for that matter, only provide correction for most people as long as you wear them. With one exception, they do nothing to "improve" vision, long term. That exception is latent hyperopia. In latent hyperopia, the ciliary muscles and crystalline lenses are under constant stress to provide the extra plus needed to focus at distance, internally, and over time, they can take a "set". That situation uses up some of their "Accommodation Amplitude" or range which often leads to early onset of the symptoms of presbyopia.

However, don't assume that latent hyperopia's reduction of Accommodation Amplitude is the only factor in the onset of presbyopia. There are more factors involved, which makes the relationship between hyperopia and presbyopia hard to understand, made all the more challenging because they apparently have the same solution, external plus lenses or in the case of people with myopia, a reduction in the minus for distance.

There are a lot of myths associated with vision that can be easily explained if you have an understanding of optics and the physiology of the eyes. It is sad when people propagate myths that simply are not true to people who don't have enough knowledge to separate myth and conjecture from proven facts. Some of the "laws" of optics may not be exactly right, but they are close enough that they have worked pretty well for over 300 years. Recent discoveries in Quantum Mechanics have shown that Sir Isaac Newton was not exactly right with some of his laws of motion and gravity, but they are close enough that the space vehicles that use them, mostly get where we want them to go or stay in orbit long enough to be very useful.

My philosophy is similar to that of the Christophers. 'It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness".

C.


GreginColo 16 Aug 2013, 23:38

Thanks Cactus Jack for the very thorough explanation of the science behind vision improvement, as in recent video post, with the use of pinhole glasses. Based on your explanation it seems the improvement would last only while the pinhole glasses are being worn, correct? Thanks for the wisdom and insights, and time you take to put them into posts, that you share with the Eyescene audience. Regards, Greg.


Cactus Jack 16 Aug 2013, 10:21

Pinhole ďglassesĒ

There is nothing new or strange going on with the optical effects of single pinholes or multiple pinholes as in the pinhole ďglassesĒ. Pinhole effects are used to advantage everyday by photographers and by Eye Care Professionals (ECPs) to help determine if optical correction (adjustment of the location of the plane of focus by using lenses) of vision defects are even possible.

The optical term for a hole through which a ďbundleĒ of light rays pass is called the ďapertureĒ. In photography, the size of the aperture in relation to the focal length of the lens is called the f-stop. The term f-stop is not used for vision purposes, but just for information, the typical f-stop range of the eye is about f 8 (pupil diameter of 2 mm) in bright light to f 2 (pupil diameter of 8 mm) in dim light, but it can vary some, depending on the optics of a myopic or hyperopic eyeball and the optical power of an individual cornea.

The primary effect of aperture size is to control the amount of light admitted to the eye or the camera to strike the retina, the film, or the image sensor in a digital camera. An important secondary effect of aperture size in photography is ďDepth of FieldĒ or range of useful focus. The smaller the aperture size (higher f-stop) the greater the depth of field. In vision, the smaller pupil opening in bright light, the wider the range of useful focus. That is why eye exam rooms are NOT brightly lit so the pupil opening will be as wide as practically possible and the depth of field will be as narrow as possible to determine the patients actual prescription as accurately as possible. Of course, many ECPs have a trick up their sleeve when they want the pupil really WIDE open - dilation. Dilation has the useful side effect of paralyzing the ciliary muscles so they canít mess with the (hopefully) relaxed state of the crystalline lens.

ECPs typically use a pinhole ďlensĒ with one small (1 to 2 mm) hole, which is typically good for seeing an eye chart. The multi-hole ďglassesĒ in the video just allow you to look around to see a broader field. The big disadvantage of the pinhole ďglassesĒ is the substantial reduction in light admittance, but an important secondary disadvantage is that they donít offer the degree of correction provided by optical lenses. True, the holes could be made smaller, but then another effect of hole size comes into play, edge diffraction where light rays tend to bend around the edges of the hole as the hole size becomes closer to the wavelength of the light. BTW, you can see similar effects in wave action in a calm body of water as waves encounter objects and bend around them.

I hope this helps. If you want to know more about how this stuff works, there are some pretty good explanations about Aperture effects in lenses and depth of field in Wikipedia and other on-line sites.

Agreed -- the pinhole glasses video is fascinating! I've never really seen anything on this. Thanks for sharing it.


GreginColo 16 Aug 2013, 00:06

That is quite an interesting post/video about the pinhole glasses. Besides getting to watch a significantly myopic guy talk about and test his vision, with and without his glasses, the improvement in his myopia appears to be quite immediate and dramatic while using the non-Rx pinhole glasses. I don't know what would cause such an immediate improvement but maybe someone smarter on the subject than myself, such as Cactus Jack, might be able to weigh in on this. The myopic reviewer seems very sincere in his testing and evaluation of the glasses. I would also be curious if this result is only for myopia or whether it might also work for hyperopia.

If you haven't already seen photos of him, you might want Google Ira Glass. He's an attractive NPR commentator/host who seems to always wear big-framed moderately myopic glasses. There are a lot of pictures of him out there, but always in glasses, going back to possibly his teen years, so he must seldomnly if ever wear contacts.


tivosesante 06 Aug 2013, 06:45

good morning, thank you greg, for the story, I am setting up a tumbler account, actually I have had one for years and still don't know how to navigate it all that well....time will teach and hopefully I will be able to bring my entire collection public.....i'm hoping to break it up into three sections, one the real myopic, thick glasses wearing people I have known, two some of the ones outside my circle of acquaintance and three the morphes that I have created from all two groups.....yesterday john, my friend from tampa with the ultra thick glasses loaned me a pair that I had given him some time ago, to give to bori for modeling, bori is minus 3 something and doesn't mind modeling glasses for me.......it was interesting to me that john would not part with his original glasses even though he had two pairs, but rather he offered me two pairs, both slightly tinted and some extra frames all that I had given him over the years that we have known one another, again a very mysterious movement on john's part, only saying 'I would rather not say why right now'


GreginColo 05 Aug 2013, 23:37

I was picking up a few things in my neighborhood supermarket over the weekend and was about ready to head to the checkouts when I noticed a mid-40ish (or so I am guessing) guy in sunglasses which appeared to have some myopic flash to them so decided to stay and shop a bit longer, and get a closer look. They were black plastic frames with a pretty strong grayish/green tint. With the tint it was hard to judge the cut-in, but they appeared to be flat-fronts with some noticeable edge thickness. Seeing that I was expecting, and hoping, he would soon change to his regular glasses, but he was wearing some pretty light running or biking clothes, so it wasn't obvious as to where he might have his glasses stored, other than possibly in a small waist pack we was wearing. I am guessing his Rx was around -10.

As he began to walk around the store, I suspected he may not have been familiar with the layout of the store. He spotted one of the store directories hanging from the ceiling but appeared to have trouble reading it with the strong tint in has glasses, so he just kind of wandered around the store picking up a few things. A couple of times he pulled his sunglasses off to read labels, noticeably close to his face.

As he proceeded to the checkouts, I got in the line behind him as the checker was about halfway though a larger order in front of him. Getting up a bit of nerve, I said "You must have left you regular glasses in the car". "How'd you know?" he asked curiously. Instead of being truthful and saying it was kind of a hobby/fascination of mine to notice guys in glasses, I said something to the effect of "Yep, I've done that before myself" (before Lasik). He said he was actually out for a bike ride and forgot to bring his regular glasses and it was a real pain to navigate the store in sunglasses, but would have been impossible without them."

I wanted to ask his Rx, but the checker had finished the prior order so he proceeded to check out and wished me a nice day and I said likewise and thanked him for the chat. I was glad I was wearing some heavier weight, and looser, cargo shorts rather the lighter and tighter biking shorts he had on. Our conversation was brief, but he seemed like a nice guy so I regretted not starting conversation sooner and offering to help him find what he was looking for in the store.

GreginColo 23 Jul 2013, 13:19

Thanks James for you info on your new government official. The pictures I has able to find of him on-line indicate quite a hefty minus Rx, as you mentioned. I would offer my opinion that your -10 estimate is probably pretty close, and maybe even a little bit low, as in the front facing pics, which were the only ones I could find of him, the cut-in was quite obvious and substantial. Thanks for sharing this with the rest on us, who probably wouldn't have otherwise seen photos of this significantly myopic man. Regards, Greg.


 23 Jul 2013, 12:41

Very low RX,..-1.00 at most.


Andrei 23 Jul 2013, 12:19

Such a shame he doesn't keep his specs on for the racy stuff. Any estimates at RX?

I invite you to do your own google image search for Yunus Carrim since this site is not allowing me to post links these days.

Can some of our esteemed Rx-estimators weigh in?

I want to say at least -10, but I tend to over-exuberance in the face of high myopia....

A couple of things that may be of interest to you in case you haven't seen:

1) On the "Guys w/Glasses" blog there is a "Behind the Scenes" interview with a young Randy Blue model named Antonio Galvon. He is moderately myopic and talks a little about wearing glasses during the interview. It would be quite fun and exciting to see a scene with him and Dean Skye, another myopic Randy Blue model, glasses on, glasses off, trading/sharing glasses....

2) On the "Spexy and He Knows It" blog, there is really fun content this week featuring a young highly myopic comedian/performer named Dave Labedz. In addition to some great photos at various times in his life, he is very open to discussing his myopia and some of the impacts it has had on him, and some of the situations he has been in with, and without, his glasses. Definitely worth a look.

And again, a big thanks to the guys who take the time and interest to host the various guys and glasses type of sites and blogs. I don't have that those computer talents, so express things more in words.


GreginColo 17 Jul 2013, 23:29

Thanks David; I am glad I was able to help him out but must also admit I was particularly interested in helping because of his specific need, ie his being moderately myopic and needing correction to basically function. Had his post been for some other type of need, ie lost his sleeping bag or his bike or his shoes, I probably wouldn't have responded, especially since he was 45 minutes away, figuring someone else could probably help him quicker and easier. But in this case I was kind of on a mission to meet him and help him, even though it took us five days to actually meet up. Had my old glasses not worked for him, I probably would have taken him to a chain store optical shop, where you can get an exam and single vision glasses for $99 and paid for them for him. Of course, it would have been fun for me to learn his true Rx and watch him try on frames.


DNBursky 17 Jul 2013, 21:39

Greg,

That is very admirable of you. You made this guy's time.

GreginColo 15 Jul 2013, 23:22

A brief followup to my post 5 days or so ago about a homeless guy who lost his glasses and was posting on C/L for some help. I had contacted him back soon after I saw the post, asking about his Rx in case I could help him with some of pre-lasik :( minus glasses that I had hung on to. He confirmed he was nearsighted but didn't know his Rx, but knew things were quite blurry without his glasses. After a w/e of emailing back and forth and trying to connect, since I was about 45 minutes away from him and for me, a w/e with very limited free time. Today, he caught a bus for the 45 miles to get to my town. He had gotten a number of replies to his C/L post but none that had yet solved his problem.

We met up in a public place and introduced ourselves. He had very attractive brown eyes but I could tell he was having trouble seeing out of them. He was homeless by choice, actually a very nice, educated upper 30's man who had taken the summer off and was traveling from NY to Calif, doing day labor along the way to cover expenses. He had stopped in Boulder CO to do some whitewater rafting and that's when he lost his glasses. His limited vision then limited his ability to do any more day labor until he could get some glasses, so he just hung out in parks, etc until he could get up to FC. He said he had a bike but crashed into a curb that he couldn't see and pretty much ruined the bike.

When we got to my vehicle I gave him the weakest pair that I had (probably -5 to -6) and he tried them on and said they worked great for him. He could immediately read the house numbers on the house across the street whereas before he said he could barely tell that the house was even there.

He also tried on a couple of stronger pairs (-6 to -7) but felt those were too strong. He said the weaker pair seemed very much like his own glasses and felt good. They also looked good on him as he has a thinner face like myself. Those were also from my pre-progessive add days, which he didn't need. I also gave him a pair on similar Rx sunglasses. I offered to buy him dinner but he said he just wanted to walk around and experience being able to see clearly again and see that trees actually had leaves rather than just being big blobs to steer clear of. He was very thankful and I was equally thankful to be a able to help him as I remember how tough it was to be without glasses for even a small period of time, let alone going on a week and in strange surroundings. I would have loved to have spent some of that time with him, but that didn't work out and I certainly wouldn't wanted to have prolonged his visual misery any longer. But he had great spirits and was looking forward to continuing his journey after hoping to get in a few days or so of day labor locally, now that is back to normal, or near normal vision.


tivosesante 11 Jul 2013, 04:18

thanks for your story greg.......it reminds me in some ways to my encounters with john, although he never asked me for glasses, but that I did, was to find no less than six pairs at the flea market that were all within the range of his prescription and to this day he wears some of them....meanwhile a friend of mine who I have posted several times, bori, is back staying with me until he finds work and a place to live....he wears minus glasses all the time now and has two pairs......I soon will be publishing a new album about him.....


GreginColo 10 Jul 2013, 23:39

The following is a C/L post that caught my attention

C/L Post: "PLEASE HELP I NEED GLASSES!

Unfortunately I lost my glasses while tubing. I am homeless without the resources to buy new ones. Any help in reaching my goal of achieving vision again would be a gift from an angel. I am an experienced carpenter and would gladly trade my skills for the gift of sight. Thank you and have a blessed day"

ME: "Do you know what your glasses prescription is? Are you nearsighted or farsighted. I 've got glasses I am no longer using but don't know if they would be helpful to you. Thanks, greg. (xxx)yyy-zzzz or email."

RESPONSE: "I am nearsighted. But have all around blurry vision. I would love to try them. I don't have a phone but check my email several times a day. thank you so much"

ME: "I had the lasik surgery done some years back and for some reason kept my old glasses. I was mid range near-sighted (-5 to -7 range), so was totally dependent on my glasses. Probably if they are a diopter or two of your range they might work for you, or at least provide much better vision than no glasses at all. Unfortunately I am in Ft. Collins and just noticed your post is from Boulder so not sure how and when we might link up. I feel sorry for you as I know how difficult it was without my glasses for even just a couple of hours."

RESPONSE: "I actually might be in Fort Collins. Ill stay in touch. Thank you very much."

ME: "Please do; I would like to help you out if possible. Do you mind if I ask your age, ie do you need an additional correction for close up or did your minus Rx work for that also?"

RESPONSE: I am 36. I wear single vision lenses

My E/S comment: I would sure like to help the guy (I presume) out, plus found the whole chain of communication quite interesting.... I'll provide follow-up if there is any.

Since I mentioned Danny Gokey, former American Idol contestant, here's a video of him singing, typically always in his myopic glasses. He even has an eyewear line named after him. Cute guy, great voice, attractive glasses. I am guessing his Rx is mid singles, although they don't look as strong on this video as when he was on American Idol. Enjoy.

GreginColo 02 Jul 2013, 23:09

I just caught the end of America's Got Talent tv show tonite and the last act especially caught my attention. It was a rock group of 4 guys. a singer and 3 instrumentalists, guys probably in their 30's, some of which were military vets. They were very good musically and all very attractive guys, but especially the singer in his his half frame, medium strength myopic glasses. He was quite active in his singing and all over the stage, but his glasses stayed up well. The judges really liked the act so they were advanced to the next round so hopefully we'll see more of him/them, and he will continue to appear in glasses. He could be the next Danny Gokey, I think that has his name, a myopic American Idol contestant, usually performing in his glasses, of several years back.

Richard Carpenter fans; look at the link below, or you may have to type it in as a search, to see some more early (1960's) Richard Carpenter photos, in glasses. One or more of these may be the view(s) that tinyeyes was referring to with the Buddy Holly style glasses. None of the photos are real clear but the one in the straw hat would indicate an Rx requiring full time use until hitting it big and getting contacts, except for the rare photo that Grant posted. There are also some current/recent photos of him; none in glasses, but still a handsome man, although aging just like the rest of us.

richard carpenter biography


GreginColo 30 Jun 2013, 21:11

Thanks Grant for the great Carpenters' photo; I too am a big Carpenters' fan and have been for 40+ years. The current bio on Richard says that he is 67 y/o, has five kids (first born when he was 40), still writes and produces music, lives in Thousand Oaks CA, and "wears contacts", so maybe never did have surgery. If I recall both he and Karen were also fans and owners of vintage Mopar (Chrysler Corp) cars of the late 50's, with a '59 DeSoto convertible once owned by Richard recently selling for big bucks (can't remember the exact amount). Thanks again for the post, especially with Richard in his hefty myopic lenses.


tinyeyes 30 Jun 2013, 17:29

Wow, I'm a Carpenters fan and wasn't really aware of this!

I do remember one early photo I saw from before they hit it big, from the mid-60s, where he had short hair and Buddy Holly-ish black frame glasses, but the RX was not evident. It certainly is evident with these giant aviator frames! Richard is still alive and well, so he probably still has at least this strong an RX unless he had surgery to correct it.


Myopic Grant 30 Jun 2013, 14:00

Richard Carpenter of The Carpenters rarely was photographed with his glasses, but you can see that he was pretty myopic. At least -6.00.

Dave 21 Jun 2013, 17:24

Yes, he is kind of cute in a geeky sort of way. Nevertheless, if I were in his visual and career position, I'd go for a frame that was slightly wider (like the woman who is a -23) and just deal with the extra thickness. (I expect that he is also using a super high index glass lens.) His specs really are a bit too small for his big face and actually draw a bit more attention to themselves and his obviously strong prescription because of their puny scale.

Most people don't have a clue about eyeglass strength unless the lenses are super thick.

Thanks for the link to this site! I didn't know it existed.


GreginColo 21 Jun 2013, 14:40

One more thought; his glasses are very small in relation to his face, almost like the mini reading glasses you see, no doubt to help diminish the look of the strong Rx. His early, pre glasses, years must have been quite difficult from a visual perspective.


GreginColo 21 Jun 2013, 14:35

Thanks James for the additional photos of Ramiro...

Quite an interesting story of him on the Spexy and He Knows It site.


Myopic Grant 21 Jun 2013, 12:04

It's amazing that Ramiro wasn't prescribed his first glasses until he was 7 years old, and they were -12.00! How did he function? It's interesting that myopia hasn't hit his daughter so far who is currently 7 as well. Everything must look quite small through those strong lenses...


James 21 Jun 2013, 10:23

Ramiro (3 of 3)

this one also vies for favourite status - you see head-on what a TINY frame he needs to wear on that big chubby head:

Two (I'm guessing rare) instances of him in contacts - note how he has that super-myopia thing where the eyes are misaligned even when corrected:

Not sure if everyone follws the Spexy and He Knows It Tumblr, but I have been mightily distracted by this week's guy, Ramiro, who wears a -23. So entranced, that I've actually done a real internet deep digging thing to find extra pics of him, and even translating his blog posts. Wow, if this is not a dream prescription I'm not sure what is! And it doesn't hurt either that Ramiro is a bit of a chubby bearish guy.

Here then in separate posts are all the pics I could find, including the Tumblr ones.

First ones with his daughter:

Just be direct. These Chinese are pretty direct in their needs. If u are seeking one night stand their equivalent is 419 meaning for one night. Just indicate you like guys in thick glasses 喜欢高度近视男 will do.


Dave 20 Jun 2013, 10:22

He's certainly prettier than his girlfriend! I wouldn't say he had an especially high prescription. Perhaps -2. That said, he probably wears correction most of the time.


Robin 20 Jun 2013, 08:01

The beautiful Jeremy Irvine. Quite a high prescription, non?

@Jo thank you so much for the jackd suggestion, I downloaded it in my iPad I think it should work better on a telephone, I am going to get a Chinese number ASAP, any suggestion as how to look or say I like guys with glasses?

tinyeyes 19 Jun 2013, 01:12

I thought you were from China, Jo. So where is home?


Jo 18 Jun 2013, 15:19

China. China. China. I love this place so much that I don't even wanna go back home. I always fantasize about having a mass orgy with these guys. Have yet to happen but I think, I hope some day it will.


tinyeyes 18 Jun 2013, 15:09

I went to Hong Kong a few years ago, and while I had some great sightings, I didn't think the streets were THAT full of high-minus guys. Wow... I want to go back. Are other areas better than Hong Kong for this? I had great sightings in Japan, too. I love your photos, Jo --keep up the postings!


Jo 18 Jun 2013, 15:01

And yes. It is indeed amazing. I can assure you I get at least one hardon every time I step into the streets. I'm in Guangzhou just two hours from Shenzhen. And we are talking about high teens and sometimes twenties.


Jo 18 Jun 2013, 14:58

Turn on jackd and search for the guys nearby. Chances you would get at least one. Trust me.


Krieger 18 Jun 2013, 08:09

Hello, I am glad to report that China is beyond anything I imagined, I have got my neck injured from turning to look at guys with the strongest specs I've seen, just amazing, I have died and gone to heaven, unfortunately I missed pride and could not spot the gay guys with glasses, and spotting an asian gay guy is not so easy, if anyone could provide insight about it I would appreciate any help. I am at the moment at Shenzhen right in front of Hong Kong.

Cheers!


GreginColo 17 Jun 2013, 07:08

Thanks Trent and tinyeyes for the Nicholas Calson links. Appears he must be a full-time glasses wearer. Very attractive!


tinyeyes 17 Jun 2013, 00:48

Google him (Nicholas Carlson) and you'll find some cute pictures of him, both current and older, like this one with longer and different frames.

http://www3.davidson.edu/cms/x45860.xml

He has such nice blue eyes....


tinyeyes 17 Jun 2013, 00:45

Thanks for the link to the news interview. He's very cute! Nice frames, and the lenses have a nice reflection. His RX isn't all that weak either...!


Jay 16 Jun 2013, 22:08

Thanks, Trent. Agree those glasses really look good on him.


Trent Tannenbaum 16 Jun 2013, 21:40

Hello,

I don't know if any of you caught this CBS newspiece, "Privacy vs. convenience online: What you need to know." The commentator, Nicholas Carlson, is wearing nice glasses; not terribly strong, though.

http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50148768n


Julian 16 Jun 2013, 14:15

I agree with you about the attraction of a spexy policeman. At one time there were strict regulations about what kind of frames they could wear on duty, but both from what I see on the streets and TV programmes about police work that I watch late at night, there seems to be a much wide choice.


JP 16 Jun 2013, 12:47

I do like a policeman with specs. Not as cute as one of our locals, but here's an example: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/journalists/andrew-gilligan/10122496/Anti-fascists-fuel-the-fire-of-hate.html


JP 12 Jun 2013, 17:09

Well the media have been digging for info about a younger Ed Snowden and appear to have turned up some pics and other info.

The pics are most interesting for us on Eyescene, with this one (http://static3.businessinsider.com/image/51b8de5ceab8ea8368000020-1024-768/bmljswocaaaqvax%20(1).gif) showing a nice bit of lens thickness (but high-index, I would've thought) and others showing him either in contacts or bare-eyed.

For all we know, he might only just have broken his current specs, or not really care. But he might well have considered the image he wants to present to the world. He's gained a lot of attention after all, and not just from our group of enthusiasts.


GreginColo 11 Jun 2013, 18:59

The news info revealed that Ed Snowden was a high school dropout so maybe why no earlier pictures have surfaced, as the media can usually dig up a high school yearbook picture or two. Despite his lack of formal education he is quite articulate. I agree with JP that he is wearing his glasses because he needs them to see; his vision would be quite poor without them. And he seems quite comfortable wearing them not adjusting them during the interview as someone who didn't regularly wear glasses might do. I don;t think he is trying to disguise his appearance or he probably would have done a lot more or just spoken from being a screen or something. He may have had to leave his normal residence quite quickly so that pair of glasses may be the only vision correction he has available at the moment, and would be in a very blurry world without them.


JP 11 Jun 2013, 17:25

No more of the script finder nonsense. Would this man, of aanyon, have such personal data available? No.


 11 Jun 2013, 17:22


Scriptor 11 Jun 2013, 17:00

Edward Snowden's prescription is:

OD -7.50 -1.00 x.065

OS -8.00 -1.25 x 180

Per Scripfinder


JP 11 Jun 2013, 16:35

I love that Edward Snowden is wearing those specs, to be honest. Uncomfortable as they might be, he needs them to see, more than he needs to take them off to avoid being seen with broken specs. And yeah, I like that for a moment there just a few of us in the world appreciated him and glasses enough to notice that missing part.

I'd love to try on those specs.


-14 11 Jun 2013, 10:43

GreginColo may be correct that Snowden wears contacts. Could be the interview in glasses was just a way to alter his appearance. The broken frames also begs the question: Why would someone who claims to have been making 200K USD walk around in busted spex? Unfortunately all the pictures of him online seem to be from the interview. Hope someone comes up with earlier pictures.

One more thought. When he was in the army he supposedly applied to be in the "special forces". Was wondering if anyone knew whether someone with an Rx as strong as his would be accepted. It appears he left the army after he broke both his legs.


Dave 10 Jun 2013, 14:16

I'd say they're -8/-9. A great prescription! On top of that he is quite geek cute. Much cuter (and much smarter) than that dweeb Bradley Manning who's probably -3/-4.


GreginColo 10 Jun 2013, 13:28

Good catch JP noting the missing nose piece; his glasses seem to stay in place well during the interview, but it might be a bit uncomfortable. Wonder if he normally wears contacts, and hence hasn't updated his glasses although he does appear very comfortable in them.


GreginColo 10 Jun 2013, 13:22

Yes he does seem to be showing up a lot now that he has identified himself; certainly a very brave young man. It took me 6 months just to get up the nerve to post something on here. I am guessing the Rx is likely in the -6 to -10 range as had already been speculated, and probably the upper end of that range. James or JP if you wish to contact me to chat one on one you can at myomanfan@yahoo.com.


JP 10 Jun 2013, 12:33

Edward Snowden has turned up on screen any time I've checked the new today and, with those specs, is seriously attractive. James - I reckon at least -6.00 and easily -8.00, so I agree with your estimate.

Does anyone know what frames he's wearing, as I've looked at similar (but not the same) ones myself?

Note that the left nose-piece is missing from his specs.


james 10 Jun 2013, 10:21

Like Greg, I am also very taken with Edward Snowden's glasses.

Can anyone hazard a guess as to the Rx? I tend to overestimate, but with the flat fronts, I'm thinking they can't be less than -8.

Anyone?


JP 10 Jun 2013, 02:12

Hey Greg - He's cute! Attractive guy, a little bit geeky, cute frames (small rectangular semi-rimless must be my favorite), hefty minus lenses). Thanks.


GreginColo 09 Jun 2013, 23:24

Here's another and longer video of the same guy.

GreginColo 09 Jun 2013, 23:11

Video of NSA whistleblower Ed Snowden; a lot of cut-in and reflectiveness in his glasses during the course of the video; hope you can open the link.

JP 05 Jun 2013, 17:23

Greg - Yes, I love it when a guy (particularly minus) switches to glasses. And loathe it when a guy switches out of glasses or - worse - an actor switches into planos, as though it makes no different. Artie did this once in Glee.

Adam B - I just signed in to share that same link. The guy's cute, and it's especially good when he looks through those minus lenses close-up at his work. I like the thought that focussing close-up overcomes the minus, yet ultimately the lenses overcome natural vision and foster the need for greater minus.


Julian 05 Jun 2013, 09:07

He is cute, isn't he? But I somehow doubt that his frames were made there 8)


AdamB 05 Jun 2013, 07:09

Hi All,

There's a cool video below about the company that made all of the glasses for the Harry Potter films. Tells you about the company and how frames are made etc.

Also has a pretty cute guy talking at about 2.11 seconds in.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-22766785

With it being a UK site, not sure if the video will be available to everyone though. Sorry.

Adam


Gregin Colo 02 Jun 2013, 22:56

Thanks JP for sharing your retail clerk sighting & chat also. As likely for most of us viewing or contributing to the thread, a guy in glasses always adds some added excitement/attraction for me, but it is especially uplifting when he is also willing to converse about his glasses and/or vision. I am getting a little more brave about initiating such conversations. While I am mainly a moderate to high minus fan, the right plus scenario can be quite interesting also, as you mentioned.

Switching gears, or maybe better lenses, a bit, there's a show here in the US called Househunters that I enjoy watching, because I enjoy housing and architecture. The show follows a person or couple (sometimes same sex) as they look at a number of houses over a period of days or weeks and then select one to try and purchase. It's especially hot if there's a guy who suddenly appears in a scene or scenes wearing glasses, and usually strong enough to know he was not bare-eyed in the non-glasses scenes. I think its great that people are comfortable enough to make that switch back and forth, even knowing it will be on national tv. Regards, Greg.


JP 02 Jun 2013, 03:27

Yep, GreginColo, it's a winner when someone's willing to talk about their specs. I complimented a supermarket checkout guy on his (small wire-rimmed strong plus - which worked on him) frames once, and had a nice little chat. Definitely lifts my mood!

We've had some good posts here lately - Cheyenne Jackson's a favourite.


GreginColo 28 May 2013, 23:24

Thanks tinyeyes for the post about the cat found in the OK tornado debris. One of the bright spots in a tragic event, and yes, I love the guy's glasses. Very hot. Thanks, Greg.

GreginColo 26 May 2013, 21:32

Yes JP, he was pretty hot, to me because of his reasonably strong glasses and willingness to talk about them, in addition to his general friendliness. I left the store in a different state than I arrived in. But talking about hot, the hottest I have seen in a long time is Chad Stark. See posts below and also on GWTG site. Thanks again Grant, and also TE, for those quite stimulating posts.


JP 26 May 2013, 02:39

GreginColo - Your store guy sounds hot.


tinyeyes 26 May 2013, 01:19

Thanks for Chad Stark, Grant. What a hottie!

A good looking guy with a real prescription, around -10 for sure. Nice!


Myopic Grant 25 May 2013, 01:20

My Pleasure Greg!


GreginColo 24 May 2013, 22:56

I was in a retail store last night just before closing, and heard the announcement that the store would be closing in 5 minutes. The guy making the announcement seemed to have a very friendly manner as he was encouraging shoppers to head toward the checkouts, which I did. The checkouts were right next to the service desk so I noticed the guy as he made another announcement over the PA. He was around 30 I would guess, but was wearing some pretty strong minus glasses, I am guessing -8 to -10 range, in some attractive gray plastic frames. Seeing that, I moved toward the service desk, trying to think of a question to ask him to be able to engage in a bit of conversation. Before I could do that he asked if I would like to be checked out there at the service desk and I said sure.

There was no one else in line at the service desk, so while he was ringing up my items, I told him I thought his glasses had a great look on him. He said he liked them also, but they were already a year old and he felt he was getting more blind again so would probably have to go in for a check-up and get new glasses again. I asked him what his prescription was and he said he couldn't remember the numbers but knew it was pretty stong and likely to get stronger. He said the distance was getting to be a bit blurry just like it was before he got his current glasses. I didn't say it to him, but found myself thinking that his Rx probably should have stablized by his age. I thanked him for checking me out, wished him a good evening, and good wishes in getting his eyes checked and new glasses if needed. In addition to the thanks for shopping at (store name), he thanked me for the conversation and compliment about his glasses. This was a store that I don't frequent that often but its nearby so will probably do so more frequenly on the off-chance of catching him again, especially since he seemed quite open to talking about his glasses and his vision.


GreginColo 24 May 2013, 22:22

Julian, it would be great to see some of our pictures.


Julian 09 May 2013, 12:10

Back in the days when the original EyeScene was new - 16 years ago! - and Wurm was still called Chris, Mark, one of the very early posters who still posts once in a blue moon under the name of Mark One, launched a site called 'Guys who wear glasses' - it was in the West Hollywood section of Geocities, for those who remember such things. I think Mark would agree with me that 'spexy guys are sexy guys'; anyway I used to wait eagerly for the monthly update. He took the site down years ago, long before Geocities went out of existence, but not before I had downloaded all the photos which I still have in a folder on my hard disc. This morning I decided to use it as a screen saver instead of one of the more recent and better quality folders I normally use, of cute and mostly spexy guys, and I was struck by the style of frames that were popular in the mid-90s. I took the trouble to go through the folder of 129 photos, some of which have more than one guy in them, and I reckon there were 117 pairs of wire rims, 87 of them round. How different from what we see on Tumblr blogs today!

Thanks Julian and Cactus Jack for the updates on Bobby's site and related sources of stimulating guys with glasses stories. In fact a few of my own stories (pen name myopmanfan) are there, but certainly not as good as some of the original stories on Bobby's site. Thanks again, Greg.


Julian 21 Apr 2013, 13:48

GreginColo: I've just discovered that some of the 'Men in glasses' stories that were on Bobby's site (and, let's hope, will be again) are on the Yahoo 'gay glasses fetish fiction' group. A lot of the stories were there originally there - unfortunately a lot of them were uploaded as links and were lost when Geocities closed down, but a few of them have ben reposted, along with some which are (to put it mildly) very explicit. Check http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GayGlassesFetishFiction


Julian 19 Apr 2013, 06:26

p.s. Actually Bobby reported the problem with his site last week under 'Site Feedback and News'.


Julian 19 Apr 2013, 02:37

Greg, Cactus: On Bobby's newer site, http://bobbylaurel.blogspot.cz/ he writes about the problems on his original site and says he hopes to get them put right by the weekend - that was last weekend, so I guess he still hasn't succeeded::( I'm with you Greg, I really miss the older site, but Bobby assures us the stories are all safe. If all else fails I guess he'll move them to the newer site, but that will take time in all conscience!


Cactus Jack 18 Apr 2013, 23:06

GreginColo,

I am not certain, but it is possible that Bobby is working on it or a new site. He mentioned something about that a few months ago and perhaps he just got around to it. Here is a translation of the text by an online translation program:

"Access is denied. Author Web site probably does not have the file in the main folder uploaded index.html or index.php, which is required for the operation site."


GreginColo 18 Apr 2013, 22:11

Does anyone know what happen to know what happened to access to "Bobby's site"? I sure would hate to lose all the stimulating "Guys with Glasses" stories that were available there. Thanks.

Stephen King's son is taking after him in more ways than one. He's an author, and also rather myopic (although his prescription isn't as strong as his dad's mega-minus RX.)

Thanks Jo for the great new set of pics. That's incredible that someone would go from uncorrected to -16; it would have been almost impossible for him to function beyond a handful of inches from his face. It must have literally opened up a whole new world to him. Thanks for your posts, some great material.

Thanks Jo!

Thank you Jo for posting such a wonderful assortment of the lovely asian guys with thick glasses, would certainly love to meet a few of them.


jo 19 Mar 2013, 02:27

tinyeyes, can you provide your email? i would like to share some discreet photos of one of the guys you earlier mentioned, which i do not wish to share on this public domain. that is if you are keen.


Jo 19 Mar 2013, 02:22

More asians uploaded.

check out one of he guys wearing glasses for the first time with a prescription of -16.

Thanks for the info, Jo. Very interesting!


Jo 16 Mar 2013, 13:00

Hi tinyeyes

145 is a 20 year old with a -20 prescription. I believe he is straight.

256 is also about 20. He is gay and is very into thick glasses as well. He has several pairs with prescription ranging from -21 to -30. He initially claims to be -30 but later said he's -22. I suspect goc but I'm not sure.

362 is someone whom I've not chatted before but based on the info he provided from where I downloaded his pics, he's a -15. I suspect an OO looking at the oversized frames.

tinyeyes 11 Mar 2013, 09:04

Thanks for the photos, Jo! If you have time, it would be great if you could add more details about the guys (gay or not, RX, if they wear contacts, how you found them, etc.) These super-strong prescriptions are hard to believe, but there they are! It's hard to imagine that many people would be doing glasses over contacts. For example, I would love to hear more about the guys in pictures 145, 256, and 362.


Jo 11 Mar 2013, 02:20

Hi Tinyeyes, i do not mind you sharing it. i haven't been too hardworking lately in getting good pics hence i added photos without sharing yet. but still you managed to find it after all. BTW, for the guy in the pic, he is married but gay. i too am very aroused by his glasses and am even considering flying over to meet him up. its a 2 hours flight from where i am, but due to work commitments, i'm unable to do it anytime soon. will keep you posted if i do.


GreginColo 10 Mar 2013, 23:26

Thanks te for the post and also thanks to the originator. As mentioned, what a treasure of high minus guys; can't believe all the -20 and uppers. Also love the photos of the loose glasses. THANKS.


tinyeyes 10 Mar 2013, 17:47

I hope he doesn't mind if I post this, but it looks like Rob LItho added some photos to his Asian Guys collection. There are some nice ones here. I think Asia is high minus heaven. This one blows me away!

mattp 02 Mar 2013, 08:03

Tristan Littlehale is a young bespectabled guy from California who is achieving quite a reputation in autocross. Google him--there are too many pictures to provide a link. His RX is not huge, but significant enough so he always is wearing glasses, unusual with someone doing all kinds of active things like driving race cars, boating, biking. There is one profile showing some nice power rings. Wonder why no contacts!


DNBursky 28 Feb 2013, 19:43

How do you contact Dean Skye? Although i doubt it's his real name. Great video.

David


Dave 28 Feb 2013, 12:45

I agree that's he's past -10. Thanks for the picture.


Myopic Grant 28 Feb 2013, 11:29

GreginColo 27 Feb 2013, 21:10

Thanks Te for the heads up on this; a good number of handsome photos of him out there, mostly in his strong (-) glasses. A nice looking guy both (especially)in his glasses, but also with contacts, no doubt.


Tinyeyes 27 Feb 2013, 13:05

Google Robert Limandri. You'll see the NYC buildings commissioner with a prescription that's at least -10D.

Julian 18 Feb 2013, 02:09

Browsing Youtube: I'd call that an EXTREME plus rather than just strong. The guy is quite cute; do you reckon he's aphakic? I don't like contacts, but I should think they'd give him better vision. (I've no idea what the discussion was as I don't speak German!)


James 17 Feb 2013, 17:29

Thanks for the info Tinyeyes....I chatted to him yesterday on Cam4. Says his Rx is -13, and can't remember exactly when he first started wearing glasses, but his guess is about age 4.


Browsing Youtube 17 Feb 2013, 16:50

tinyeyes 16 Feb 2013, 18:11

And he's on right now, although patience is required to see his face on cam. Gallery pics are good too. (That was me in the last post, accidentally put wrong screen name)

To Ellie:

My rx is same as yours!!! with astig.... had cataracts and partial implants, still -6...scar tissue comes from retinas being stretched over time in double digit myopee's (like us lol)... lots and lots more..want to give email? or pick a time for another site..

Ellie 10 Feb 2013, 03:40

Hi guest, I am at -14.50 in my right eye and -12 something in my left. I have some astigmatism as well. What is your prescription? Could you elaborate a little bit about how you got the scar tissue? If you'd like, we might want to consider moving this conversation to a more appropriate thread.


guest 09 Feb 2013, 21:14

To Ellie....

I have retina's with scar tissue and thickening due to high myopia....they make vision uncorrectable past certain points. Vitrectomy can help, but healing is sporatic as to actual results.

How myopic are you?


Ellie 09 Feb 2013, 15:39

I'm guessing that retinal health and astigmatism likely play roles in affecting visual acuity as well. However, I'm no expert, so I could be wrong.


tinyeyes 09 Feb 2013, 13:17

I'm sure someone else will weigh in on this, but I don't think there is a direct correlation. However, I've always had the vague idea that someone who needs a -8 correction would likely have an acuity of around 20/800.


Myopic Grant 09 Feb 2013, 11:25

So, what whould 20/800 eyesight be in regards to negatives?


GreginColo 09 Feb 2013, 07:21

Thanks Spexman for the interesting video on Buddy Holly and his willingness, out of necessity, to lead the way with it being okay to perform on stage wearing glasses. His glasses certainly became one his trademarks, along with his tremendous musical talent.

A geeky video here about tech start-ups in Newcastle, with a scattering of speccy guys in the background. I've taken the liberty of highlighting not only Stephen (glasses of course) but also two other good-looking but spec-free guys. I can but hope they might wear glasses at other times.

tivosesante 03 Feb 2013, 18:58

cercasi appears to be a -14.......here's a clip that was on the sidelines.....http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEl_6QcxW4c


original Tony 03 Feb 2013, 17:47

Antonio seems to be bare eyed in the Stage clip. When he reaches for the bottles at the end he has to feel for them first of all


tinyeyes 03 Feb 2013, 15:35

Thanks for the Antonio links. He's sexy! Somehow (maybe prism) the right eye seems to have a much stronger prescription, but it's hard to tell. I don't think he's anywhere near -20, but I could be wrong. He's definitely in the double digits and wearing it quite well.


GreginColo 03 Feb 2013, 09:20

Thanks James for the videos of Antonio; I agree a very high and intruiging Rx; while I don't consider myself an Rx expert, I would have to say approaching -20 if not there; some of the close up shots in the latter part of the video are especially intruiging. As far as the second video where he is without glasses, I would think he would have great difficulty functioning in a bare-eyed situation, even in an acting mode, but you certainly do raise an interesting question. I'll look forward to other replies. Thanks for the posts.


 03 Feb 2013, 07:03

Welcome to another very special episode of "Specs4ever shoots from the hip" where he once again speaks without evidence to back himself up.

Hold on, isn't this a rerun??


James 03 Feb 2013, 07:01

Here's a video of Antonio Prestieri, whom some may remember as the son of the mafia boss in Naples who appeared on a BBC segment.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqz4JF6dyJU

In this video, logic would dictate he is in contacts, but I just have a gut instinct he is bare-eyed, not sure exactly why I think that (if anyone has a more scientific view, I welcome it).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ayr20KSgKw

Clearly his Rx is otherworldly, something crazy and definitely in double digits, and his left eye has almost a low vision look about it (even though there's a helluva Rx on that side, so maybe not).

Could some of our expert Rx guessers please weigh in?


tivosesante 02 Feb 2013, 14:16

guest-jan 28.......meant to respond, i live close to ybor city and get over there once a week, nothing spectacular, but tampa itself is teaming with myopics, particularly blacks and puertoricans, very few mexican here are myopic...


tivosesante 01 Feb 2013, 18:08

i usually don't relate to non illustrative posts, but this one really grabbed me.......i have mentionrd this character before(victor) and did get some pics of him a long time ago....anyway, ran into him at the main bus station downtown, waiting for the same bus i was going to take and the bus was runing real late so i got an opportunity to sit and talk with victor breifly.....being like a grasshopper he was soon in a flight mode and would land a few yards away and after awhile i would zero in and he would focus for a few minutes....it's quite obious that he has mental problems.....i would say he's as crazy as he is myopic and i got to tell you he's no less than -25 if not higher.....small oval shaped metal rims housing hi index, but still pretty thick myodiscs with concave fronts....his eyes appear ever so tiny, the power rings are horrendous and the incut very deep......in a day or so i will so some assimulations and post them on the web....

i posted a thanks to you you earlier greg, but somehow it got lost in the ozone......i'm not going even to attempt to repeat some of the context, but rather put it into practice.....i will say that my friend johnn with the very thick glasses has been passively teaching me some sort of inner quiet and introspectiveness about things that go on around me outside of me and my control......it's been one of the most curious relationships i have ever had.....


tivosesante 30 Jan 2013, 05:00

thankyou greg, i find feed back very validating, but i have to learn to speak for myself only....so this is to say that i feed and continue to feel inspired when someone acknowledges or validates me......my friend john, with the very thick glasses seems to be quite the opposite.....he could well be a master of non-codependency.......


GreginColo 29 Jan 2013, 19:44

Thanks Tivo for your continuing efforts to provide us with thoughtful but stimulating hi-myoguy photos. I am no computer genius but have typically been able to open and enjoy your posts by highlighting the link, right clicking, and opening the link. Not quite as easy as just clicking on the link, but definitely worth the effort. Thanks again.


tivosesante 29 Jan 2013, 13:41

checking back now i see that when joe publishes asians with glasses on his web albums that the urls also are not underlined or highlighted.....


tiivosesante 29 Jan 2013, 03:52

good morning everyone....thanks for any feedback on my posting urls.....it's with this feed back that i am able to adjust the situation.....i have much to share and very willing to do so, but due to lack of computer sabe i fail often times short to hit the mark.......for a while there back a month or so greg and others had no problem getting into my picasa web albums.....your feed back is going to be my best guide to improvement and i guarentee most of you will be amazed before you are halfway thru.....thanks....tivo....


James 28 Jan 2013, 08:38

A general problem I've noticed with Tivo's links is that you often precede or follow them with an ellipsis (...).

There may be some picasa specific problem too, but this ellipsis thing also prevents your other website addresses appearing as links. All URL's should be preceded and followed by at least one space.

hows the sightings for hi minus in Tampa Ybor area??? GWGs or whatever. Where ???


tivosesante 28 Jan 2013, 07:22

thanks julian one for tellig us that it did't even go thru. but two, for istructing tom how to copy ad paste it on the address bar.......as far as rendering a standard version of the underscored and blue tinted italic url, picasa does ot give me that option.........if anyone knows how to convert that, please let me know.....remember pic no, 5 is a video, although very amaturish, i hope tet good enough by next week in mexico to do some effective video work.....i strongly recommed the apple i pad for good foto and video work and filing convenience......thanks...


Jo 28 Jan 2013, 07:13

for some weird reason, maybe due to the link being too long and complex, picasa links could not be automatically highlighted. i encountered the same problem as well. but i dun think it takes too much effort to copy and paste to actually warrant a post to a contributor.

Julian 28 Jan 2013, 03:23

Tom: like you, I've always wondered why Tivo's URLs aren't highlighted; it normally happens automatically. The easy way round this is to copy and paste it. But don't worry about that last one, there's nothing and nobody on it.


Tom W. 27 Jan 2013, 20:58

Umable to access your site due to URL not being highlighted and too complex to type in manually. Can you improve on this? I think I am missing some interesting photos?

Nothing political intended here, but you may see the relevance to prior E/S posts re US Treasury Secretary nominee Jack Lew. I read the following sentence in a national publication today:

At his last confirmation hearing, in 2010, Lew discounted the importance of regulation, revealing a "myopic view of the origins of the economic meltdown."

Oh, the irony here...

And speaking of irony, as I write this the TV show Jeopardy is on in the background:

The question: Concave lenses were invented to correct this.

Answer: (which a contestant quickly answered) What is nearsightedness (or myopia)?

Yes, Dom(with the skateboard) is very myopic, but when I've 'spoken' with him, he seems to have no idea of his prescription. He's a really nice guy and did 6 months' worth of daily vlogs last year, if you can find them on You Tube. And in case you were wondering; yes he is deaf, too.


tinyeyes 22 Jan 2013, 08:56

That's a good point about the stress of removing contact lenses, Cactus Jack.


Julian 22 Jan 2013, 02:14

Bwian: both interesting guys, as Greg says. I thought the first one was particularly cute. The second guy seemed to hold the skateboard pretty close when he was working on it - could be be heading for an increase?

GreginColo 21 Jan 2013, 20:11

Thanks Bwian for the two videos; both interesting guys. The second (skateboard guy)appears to me to be noticeably more more myopic than the first. I would guess second guy is -10 to -15 and first -5 to -10, kind of wide ranges I know, but sometimes kind of hard to tell with today's high index lenses.

And thanks Cactus Jack for your thoughts on contacts and retinal detachment. I have never worn contacts, always glasses, but your thoughts make good sense after having watched people at times struggle to remove their contacts.


Cactus Jack 21 Jan 2013, 17:21

tinyeyes,

I suspect, but don't know for sure, that the reason people who have had retinal detachment are concerned about wearing contact lenses is not the lenses themselves, but the stresses and pressures that are sometimes necessary to remove the lenses. Insertion of the lenses is usually pretty gentle, but often it is necessary to apply pressure or distort the eyeball a bit to break the suction between the lens and the cornea. Anything that could put stress on the retinal re-attachement bonds is probably avoided at all costs.

I have never had any hint of a retinal detachment, but from reading the experiences of others and a description by a relative who had it happen, it can REALLY get your attention and you have no desire to repeat the experience.

Dave 21 Jan 2013, 16:28

He's cute in a geeky sort of way. His glasses exaggerate his prescription somewhat but it is a hefty one nonetheless. I'd say about -7 to -8. Not quite double digits.


Bwian 21 Jan 2013, 15:47

This looks like a decent prescription. Any guesses? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6AwSc_mdz_8


James 21 Jan 2013, 04:43

Tinyeyes - that's interesting that you say that, as I've met people with formerly detached retinas who were told contact lens wear will always up the risk, even if only slightly, of the retina detaching again.


tinyeyes 20 Jan 2013, 14:06

Yes, thanks for the info James. I didn't realize he was as high as -16.

I don't know if detached retinas necessarily preclude contact lens wear, although they may make lasik or ICL surgery impossible. I know someone who's about -10 who had a detached retina, and I think he was unable to wear contacts for a short time, but is wearing them again now.


tinyeyes 20 Jan 2013, 14:06

Thanks James for your additional insights on the German politician, and I certrainly agree with your comments on the intrigue aspect of it. And thanks again for the original post of him.


James 20 Jan 2013, 08:26

Tinyeyes,

He has a really crazy prescription, read somewhere in the range of -16 in his right (worse) eye. This came out when the German media was mocking his nearsightedness and choice of eyewear during his last campaign a few years ago. He also had detached retinas in both eyes at age 19, so no ICL's or contacts in his future!

Amazing how a major league Rx can make a not very conventionally attractive man really intriguing to me. With that kind of eyesight, though, I imagine the world is a really different place for him, perception-wise, than it is for those with 20/20 vision or even mild to moderate myopia. While I'm sure he can technically "see", I'd imagine it's a very tiny and one dimensional world with little depth perception, like he can see what's right ahead of him and not much more.

Had a great sighting at my gym yesterday. After my workout I went to the sauna for a quick rest. Was in there for about 2 minutes on my own until the door opened a man's voice said 'ah shouldn't have worn my glasses'. Curiousty got the better of me and I put my glasses on to see 2 men in their 40s both in glasses. They both proceeded to take off their glasses as the warm air steamed them up. I plucked up the courage to say 'it's not a good place if you need glasses', one just smiled while the other said 'ye but I'm blind as a bat, I wouldn't find my way from the dressing room to here without them'. I replied 'tell me about it' and the conversation ended. They both put their glasses back on before they left.

and to dnbursky....what i do is, i have downloaded a free application of picasa 3 program which allows me to send foto images via gmail you might want to open a google gmail account, also free..... i fell upon all this over time, but it works real good....picasa allows me to file and lable images, also combine them in album, manipulate them, enhancement also, lots of options.


tivosesante 14 Jan 2013, 04:13

Its Me let me explain, i think i posted earlier on that victor was not coopertive and would not pose with his new glasses, he hasn't for some time now...these fotos were taken about two years ago and the one was morphed from the other and still others to give the groupe an idea what his new glasses are like.....victor has changed glasses and prescriptions so many times since i met him about two years ago, that i do believe he may be a well closeted g.o.c.er, but who knows, what i do know is that he started off with glasses somewhere around -17 and now is doing well over minus 20 with myodiscs that are are extremely well defined with pronounced prisms...along with all of this mystery victor has sported on different occasions glasses ranging from - 7 or 8 to maybe 10; then stronger ones, then tinted ones, then i saw him recieving handout glasses from a mission in down town tampa, that were for reading, also he has appeared in glasses of a lighter script again that were completely different in strenght from one eye to the other....he is seemingly homeless, posibly mentally ill, definitely super tense and hyper anxious and somewhat paranoid.....rides a bicycle all the time...


Cactus Jack 13 Jan 2013, 22:14

tinyeyes,

If I can offer some comments regarding Herbieís choice of the plus contacts. If you consider the following back of an envelope calculations to balance his glasses prescriptions:

His current glasses prescription is:

R -20.25 sphere

L -9.50 sphere

If we allow for a 12 mm vertex distance and calculate his eye power (the inverse of his prescription at the cornea) we get the following.

R +15.42 (CL = -15.50)

L +8.41 (CL= -8.50)

The first question is what power contact lens should Herbie wear to make his Right Eye require to match the glasses prescription in his Left eye?

We know his Right eye power so to make his Left Eye require approximately a -20.25 glasses lens, we need a +7.00 CL

The second question is what power contact lens should Herbie wear to make his Left Eye match the glasses prescription in his Right Eye

Again we know the eye powers and we would need a -7.00 CL to partially correct his Right eye to require a -9.50 glasses lens.

Now consider the shapes of the lenses.

For maximum comfort, the outer edge of the lens needs to be very thin and the thickness increase as you approach the center of the lens, very nearly the natural shape of the cornea itself, just a little thicker in the center.

Now consider the shape of a relatively high minus CL. It needs to be very thin at the edges for the most comfort the increase rapidly in thickness about 1/3 the distance from the edge to the center and then get thin again near the center of the lens to produce the -7.00 power.

The relative comfort of the different lens shapes depends on the tightness and relative sensitivity of the eyelid as it moves across the lens. I suspect, but donít know for sure that the -7.00 lens has a noticeable circular ridge that the +7.00 lens does not.

Unlike the person who needs a -15.50 CL for both eye, Herbie can easily compare the relative comfort of each power lens on his corneas and make a choice of which one he prefers.

I hope this makes sense.

Herbie, I would appreciate your comments on my explanation and my estimation of the CL powers. I used the commonly accepted formulas for the calculations, but I donít think the calculations are exactly right at very high prescriptions. The best way do determine the glasses prescription is a refraction with the CL in place. The result for your left eye may not be exactly 20.25 with the contact, but glasses are commonly available in 0.25 increments and contacts around these powers go from 0.25 to 0.50 increments. The examiner can be more accurate with the glasses prescriptions.

C.


Its Me 13 Jan 2013, 20:19

I think its amazing that Victor is wearing the same clothes in both photos and the photos are taken in the same location!


DNBursky 13 Jan 2013, 19:56

I switch between contacts usually during the day and glasses at night. Not sure how to post a photo.

David


tinyeyes 13 Jan 2013, 02:14

Herbie, it's interesting hearing about your solution to your vision correction.

Do you wear hard or soft lenses? I'm curious as to why the minus contact lens is uncomfortable. Is it because of the thickness? I don't know if I've heard of a contact lens, either hard or soft, available as high a power as -20. What is the limit of power of a contact lens, does anyone know?

On a related subject, I talked to a guy who is blind in one eye and about -8 in the other. He wears one contact much of the time, but when wearing glasses, for appearance's sake he wears the -8 prescription in both eyeglass lenses. It looks much better. And course fas an OO who likes the look of a strong prescription, I would agree.


herbie 12 Jan 2013, 12:53

Cactus Jack

Yes your comments are perfectly true. When I wear glasses without any contacts I get double vision.

The plus contact lens I wear on my left eye is much more comfortable than the minus contact lens required on the right. It means I wear -20.25 glasses which are strong but give me good vision.


tivosesante 12 Jan 2013, 11:42

this morning i got the surprised of a lifetime from my old contact victor who some of you may know thru a throughly ficticious story, but anyway victor has been an enigma all along, starting with a total lack of cooperation in regards to fotographing, along with unpredictable mood swings....i have dubbed him a a closet goc' er mostly becuase he has appeared in so many different glasses at different times and now from a seemingly very low script, after sporting a high one to start with, to a very high one, i would say some where in the high twenties, he has even dawned plus reading glases, but all in in all he's totally illusivw and unwilling to stand in front of a camera at this time, so i assulated what he looked like this morning and compared it to the forst time that i was able to capture some fotos of him which appear in the same web albums just click on to tivo's albums on the bar above 'victor today and before'....here's the picasa web album link......

Cactus Jack 12 Jan 2013, 10:20

One of the big problems people with very mismatched prescriptions is the difference in image sizes on the retna caused primarily by Vertex Distance effects. Sometimes it can make it nearly impossible to fuse the images and keep them fused. Contact Lenses with Zero Vertex Distance do not change image size very much, so the idea of using a contact lens on one eye to match up the glasses prescription is a good one and then, correct the final result with glasses. The choice of which eye to wear the contact should be the choice of the patient after trying both.

I remember a few years ago that an ES poster had a similar problem where the different size images made it difficult for him to read without double vision problems. The several ECPs he had seen had tried everything but a single contact lens to match up the image sizes. I suggested that he look into that option and never heard back.

A good solution to a not very rare problem, Herbie.

C.


GreginColo 12 Jan 2013, 09:36

Thanks Herbie; for you response, I am glad that single eye GOC works well for you, as a way of providing comfortable and clear vision for you. I assume you are not yet of the age, as are some of us, that requires near vision correction also, which adds another complexity.


herbie 12 Jan 2013, 08:54

Thanks for the replies guys.The photos were great.

I have always had mismatched rxs but in my teens and early 20s the difference got bigger. I get better vision if I use one contact lens to equal out the eyes then finally correct with glasses. The most comfortable is to use a plus contact lens to make both eyes high minus then use strong minus glasses,vision is better too.


GreginColo 11 Jan 2013, 22:03

A number of thoughts/questions here:

Re Jack Lew: I agree with tinyeyes, who is a great judge of myopic Rx's, that Lew's Rx is likely pretty strong, ie in the teens; there are a few recent pictures of him that show significant cut-in when he tilts his head a bit to one side or the other. At his age he must have some progressive near distance correction built in or else be switching glasses a lot for the all numbers and charts he must be frequently looking at. It would be interesting to see some younger day pics of him but I couldn't find any.

Re Herbie: The difference in your Rx's is quite intruiging; that is a large difference. I would be interested in knowing your visual history, as to whether you always had a proportional difference, or whether one eye changed much more rapidly than the other. If you don't want to share this on ES but would do so via email let me know and I will provide that to you.

And lastly a gym sighting today. An attractive mid-40ish guy who I had never seen in glasses before showed up today in some some upper single digit glasses in attractive brushed aluminum rectangular frames. He was working with a trainer so I couldn't strike up a conversation, but it had me wishing I didn't have to get to work and could linger through the end of his workout.

tinyeyes 11 Jan 2013, 09:11

Jack Lew actually looks to be at least -10, maybe even as high as -12. His well-chosen small frames minimize thickness and do a good job of hiding cut-in, but make no mistake, they're very powerful. In photos where you can see part of his eyes or eyelids not covered by the eyeglasses, you can see the major difference in size, which helps show how strong the correction is. He's 57 years old, so I'm assuming he's in bifocals, but I would think it would be difficult to make bifocals with such small frames -- interesting.


herbie 11 Jan 2013, 09:06

Hi, any guys here share similar experience. I have mismatched rxs. L-9.5, R-20.25


James 11 Jan 2013, 04:43

Google images for new Treasury Secretary Jack Lew.

Looks to be significantly myopic - perhaps not in double-digit territory buy I'll warrant he'd be very lost without his (predictably hi-index, wire-rim) glasses.

Any guesses as to his Rx?

Church is probably not the most appropriate place for myoguy sightings, but it happens, so I will share one here and hopefully not offend anyone. And to be totally honest, a myoguy sighting is hard for me to ignore regardless of the setting. The church I attend is a somewhat specialized, small congregation, so we typically average about 25 at our weekly service, so it is easy to notice a guest in our midst, and we always try to be very welcoming to them.

This past Sunday, an attractive guy showed up, my initial guess 50 y/o, +or- 5 either way, and we sat in the same pew. I quickly noticed he was wearing mid-range myopic glasses, I am guessing -5 to -8 range, in attractive frames. He must not have had any near vision correction however as to read anything he would slightly lower his glasses and look above them, with the material at a pretty close range, something I used to do myself, and probably more convenient than needing to have the right power of reading glasses available, as I do now.

Anyhow, after the actual service we have a fellowship time so I had a chance to chat with him a bit more and learned his age to be 55, so I was surprised he add not yet availed himself of some near vision correction. He seemed like a very nice guy and I hope he will return sometime in the future, and if so I'll be interested to see if he is in glasses or contacts. I am left wondering if he normally wears contacts so has not bothered to update his glasses for some near vision assistance.

The chain supermarket where I normally shop opened a store relatively close to my house about 5 years ago. There was a male cashier there, tall, slender, handsome, probably early 30's, dark eyes, and dark hair pulled tight to his head and braided in the back. By the way he blinked his eyes a lot I suspected he was wearing some fairly powerful contacts but wasn't sure. I would usually try to go through his checkout line if he was available as he was always quite friendly, in addition to his overall handsomeness.

Several years back, the chain opened another store, that he transferred to, on the opposite side of town so I didn't see him much after that, until yesterday (New Year's Eve day)when I was in that part of town so decided to shop there, pretty much having forgotten about the fact that he worked there. As I approached the checkout lines I noticed he was working, so I made sure to go his line, especially when I noticed he was wearing glasses with pretty strong appearing myopic lenses.

I had a fairly large order so it gave us some time for small talk as to how he liked this store vs the prior one. I finally got up the nerve to compliment him on his glasses, flat-fronted, reflective, lenses in stylish wrap-around lenses with wide temples making it difficult to judge the lense thickness, but I am guessing at least a -10. He continued to say that the smoke from area forest fires we had this past summer had begun to bother his contacts enough that he would have to switch out of them midway thru this shift so finally just started wearing glasses full time for work. I again complimented him on his look with his glasses and wanted to ask him his Rx but didn't get that level of courage, and he had finished ringing up my items so I didn't want to hold up those in line behind me. Anyway it was a nice sighting and a confirmation of my earlier suspicion of his myopia, so thought it worth sharing here.

Happy New Year's to the Guys in Glasses community.

White House Press Sec Jay Carney has been on TV a lot lately, always looking quite attractive in his glasses, which appear to be not all that strong. Today he was without glasses, still quite attractive, but must have been in contacts, as no obvious squinting or eye discomfort or difficulty seeing or focusing.

Thanks Tivo for the Youtube post of the interview with video game designer John Romero. An interesting interview even for a video game outsider like myself. Especially appropriate for this site however is that he is a very handsome guy wearing quite attractive high minus glasses, with a lot of lens reflectiveness showing throughout the interview. Also quite interesting are the earlier in life pics of this handsome and talented man. Thanks again Tivo for sharing this post.

GreginColo 07 Dec 2012, 19:43

Thanks Tivo for the post of myopic supermodel guy lying in bed before transitioning to contacts for the day. Nice looking guy, nice looking glasses. THX for sharing, THX for caring.

Also an update on myself. In my Thanksgiving Day post I had mentioned that I had just ordered 4 pairs of glasses from Zenni during their BOGO sale. This was the first time I had ever ordered Rx glasses on line. Anyhow, they arrived today and I am pleased with the fit and quality. The frames however may be a bit more fashionable than I have used in the past, but that will probably be good for me.

In case you haven't read my prior posts, I was moderately and progressively more myopic starting in 4th grade and always wore glasses until about 10 years ago when I had lasic, which I came to regret, as I miss being myopic and the connection that brings with other similarly interested myopic guys.

So during the past years I have worn off the shelf readers, more frequently and with a stronger Rx, but always glasses on for close, off for distance. So I finally decided to order some bifocals with a mild plus top and stronger lower reading segment. I wore one pair most of the afternoon and they seemed to work well at work (mostly computer work) and in general. The bifocal portion seems well placed. I'll try the look and feel of the other 3 pairs over the next few days, but so far, so good.

GreginColo 29 Nov 2012, 21:54

Thanks for the post; the content of the video is kind of weird, to me anyway, but still worth a watch. It's interesting how he starts with his moderate myopic glasses off without a lot of squinting, a bit later moves his face close to the computer screen to read, then puts his glasses on, then removes them again toward the end of the video, all with no mention at all of the glasses. Thanks again.

Greg,

Thanks for the update. I don't feel GOC is at all about the contacts; for most, if not all, the contacts are merely a means to an end ie. to get to wear stronger/ different prescription glasses and still be able to see properly while doing so.

What do others think?

Sam


GreginColo 23 Nov 2012, 22:40

PS; I forgot to mention Jamie's writing, that I referred to in my post, is posted on the Vision and Spex site. Sorry.


GreginColo 23 Nov 2012, 22:37

Hope your Thanksgiving was good; mine was with family here in Colorado; and safe travels to those of you yet to return to your homes. While many of us were suffering through our post "ate too much" bloat, our friend Jamie (see prior post) was busy at the keyboard writing down his own personal guys in glasses story, and particularly his interest in bifocals, on himself and on other guys. As someone more recently out of the closet regarding my OO interest, I am always interested in other guys' stories as to how and when in their lives they became aware of this interest, and how it has influenced their lives (see my earlier "Have You Ever?" post) Thanks Jamie for sharing yours and hope others of you have a chance to read.

It was kind of a coincidence that I ordered 4 pairs of bifocals from an on-line retailer the day before Thanksgiving. They were having a buy one/get one sale, hence the 4 pairs. A brief recap of my own story, I became interested in mypoic guys fairly early in life but shoved it in the closet,along with other things, even though it often influenced my actions, such as trying to sit next to or befriend a myopic guy. I started wearing glasses in 4th grade and had the normal myopic progression until it stabilized around -7 in college. Fast forward some decades and I had lasik done thinking the closeted myopic fetish would go away. Wish I would have known some of you guys then to help talk me out of it, as I miss being myopic, but am not going to do GOC as I had no interest in contacts even when I was myopic; always just wore glasses. Having lasik is definitely in my personal top ten list of bad decisions, even though the vision turned out basically normal, but that's how we all learn. Are there any others with this regret? Anyhow, long story short, I am now needing a mild plus Rx with a close up add, hence the bifocals order. A good friend of mine, who is also a myoguy fan, looked up the frames I ordered and thought I made some good choices, so I appreciate that, and look forward to receiving them in a couple of weeks.

Thanks again Jamie for sharing your personal story, and O hope others will consider doing so also.


Jamie32 23 Nov 2012, 18:40

Black Friday in USA,

big day for shopping.

Guy in probably early 20's came into store wearing dark brown plastic frames, able to get close enough to see some very thick lenses behind the frames.

Certainly looked a day away from the contact lenses, could definitely tell guy had to be double digits in myopia. Looked like average cute college guy, fairly trim, cute dark brown cropped hair


GreginColo 21 Nov 2012, 22:24

I wanted to offer a special Thanksgiving wish to the Eyescene Guys in Glasses community in the USA as we celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday; and to those of you elsewhere in the world, may this also be a time of thankfulness and generosity in your lives.

GreginColo 06 Nov 2012, 19:53

If you haven't already, check out the most recent video on the GWTG site; a very cute, very myopic guy talking about making an adult film with his glasses on, and also how he often wears his glasses, probably very necessary with his Rx, during times of personal intimacy. If he did make such a video it would no doubt be very popular among those of us who read and enjoy this thread. Thanks Tiny Eyes for the video post, and the site.


GreginColo 06 Nov 2012, 07:44

THANKS Tiny Eyes for the additional information you provided on "Craig" and the stimulating video link of him in his glasses, as he talks about his New Years resolutions. And as you mentioned, too bad we haven't seen any recent posts of him. And as always, a big THANKS for the stimulating photos and comments on your GWTG site. Best to you.


tinyeyes 03 Nov 2012, 10:37

Greg, if you look at the "channel" of Craig, the guy who got new glasses after 18 years, you can find more videos of him wearing his wonderful strong glasses. We discussed him a lot a couple of years ago here. Sadly something seems to have happened and he never posts videos any more. Here is a good one...http://youtu.be/sZ2w-yZydGU

Also, just a reminder to anyone new or who hasn't looked in a while, to check out my tumblr blog, where I continually post pictures of spexy guys--

Gregin Colo 27 Oct 2012, 21:10

Thanks again, Minus 10, for the posts you shared. Hope you find even more to share. The "I can see clearly now" video was great: very cute guy showing us his super hot new glasses. Hard to imagine he hadn't replaced his glasses in 18 years. He likely would have had some noticeable Rx increases during that time, so must not have relied on his glasses much at all. Would love to have seen him remove his contacts and then put the glasses on, with those fascinating bare-eyed moments in between. Too bad he got distracted telling us about chips and dips and trips to the Dairy Queen, but I imagine he was making a general video , not one targeted to us myopmanfans.

The other guy with the very strong bifocal plus Rx, you have to admire the way he carries on his life (did he say lifeguard training?)with some pretty obvious visual loss, as evidenced by the way he hesitates to remove his glasses to show the lens thickness. I don't know a lot about plus Rx's, nor have the same fascination as I do with minus Rx's, so it would be hard for me to even guess at an Rx for him.

Thanks again to -10 and to all the guys who share on this site and help keep it interesting and stimulating.

tinyeyes 25 Oct 2012, 01:16

Good story, Greg! Poor guy, but I'm glad it ended ok. Thanks for sharing.


Gregin Colo 24 Oct 2012, 20:56

This true story happened about 10 years ago, and was related to me shortly thereafter by the person it happened to, a friend of mine named Derrin. As a bit of background, Derrin was a bit younger than me, and also a bit more myopic. I was -7ish at the time, and his glasses were a bit stronger and thicker than my own. Neither one of us had hi-index lenses; or ever wore contacts, so were completely glasses dependent, so we rarely saw each other without glasses, but I was always welcomed those chances to try on each otherís glasses, which I seemed to enjoy more than he did. Anyway, I would guess his Rx was likely somewhere -8 to -10, and probably closer to -10. For the purpose of this story Iíll assume -9.5.

Derrin was married at the time and had a couple of great kids, probably then late elementary school age. He had promised the kids a day-trip to the regional water park, so used a Saturday when his wife was travelling out of state to make good on that. They made the 45 minute drive to the water park getting there in time for the morning opening to get in the full 10 am to 6 pm day at the park. Derrinís glasses at the time were transitionals, in rather large frames, so figured he didnít need to bring any Rx sunglasses or clip-ons along. One of the early ďridesĒ that the kids wanted to go on was a water plume tube about up 2 or 3 stories that shot you down a tube into a large pool of swirling water. There were warning signs saying to remove any jewelry, accessories, etc and if wearing glasses to make sure you had a safety strap to hold them on tightly, because they couldnít shut the attraction down until the end of the day, to retrieve lost items. He had not brought a strap along, and didnít want to navigate up the stairs in a bare-eyed blur, so he ascended to the top of the ride with his glasses on, figuring they were heavy enough that they would stay on his face.

The kids went down the plume first and Derrin followed, soon ending up in the swirling pool. He soon realized that his world had become an intense blur and he had lost his glasses somewhere on the way down. His kids, neither myopic at the time, helped him get to the side of the pool and climb out. He started to panic realizing the gravity of his situation and the pending difficulty of getting through the rest of the day in Ė9.5 bare-eyed blur, until his glasses could be retrieved after the attraction was shut down at the end of the day. He explained his situation to park management but was reminded of the warning signs about personal items lost on the ride. Of course there was no way he would drive home, or even get out of the parking lot with his significantly myopic uncorrected vision. With the kids help they did make a trip out to the car to see if by chance he had left an extra pair in the car, but no such luck. And with his wife out of state she couldnít bring another pair to him, although, had I known, I would have volunteered to bring him a spare of my own Rx to least provide some significant degree of correction. A -2 to3 undercorrection would certainly have been more tolerable than what he was experiencing. He decided the only thing to do was to squint has way through the day and make the best of it until he could hopefully retrieve his glasses. On the way back from the car, with his limited vision, he made a mis-step and twisted his ankle so had a double handicap.

The kids were not used to seeing their Dad without his glasses, so he explained to them that they would have to help him see for the rest of the day and they could go ahead and have fun on the safer rides but he wouldnít be able to watch them as close as he would like. They did go the concession stand and buy some cheap sunnies to help reduce the glare and make the squinting less obvious. Nonetheless the kids had a fun and safe day, and by the end of the day Derrinís eyes were very strained and tired but had somewhat adjusted to the blur. As soon as the park closed for the day the lost items in the plume pool were retrieved, and Derrinís glasses were among those, along with some other glasses but likely without such a strong Rx. They were a bit worse for the wear but still very usable.

As he was telling me about this misfortune a couple of days later, I was trying to hide my own excitement about what he was sharing with me and how much I would have liked to have been there to help him navigate thru a -9.5 bare-eyed day, and likely would have shared my glasses with him, to at least share the blur of the day, and somewhat lessen his. Being afraid of heights I would noty have gone on the plume ride. Of course, my own excitement would have been hard to conceal; likely a full towel day. From then on he always kept a spare pair in the glove box of his car, which I enjoyed when we were travelling together and he would go into a store or something. Even this many years later, recounting this story brings fond memories......


JP 24 Oct 2012, 12:40

Yes, -10, I agree with GreginColo. He's cute!


GreginColo 23 Oct 2012, 21:35

Thanks -10, for the video post; a cute guy with great eyes and some obvious cut-ins visible throughout the video: I would guess his Rx minus 6-7ish or so, but that's just a guess on my part based on the cut-ins.

Thanks for sharing some very attractive photos of him in a variety of frames; definitely some power in the lenses. In the photos if him without glasses, wonder if he is in contacts or posing bare-eyed. Thanks again for sharing these.

to answer some of your inquiry, bori, luis alaya from puerto rico is presently incarcerated in a florida correctional institution, scheduled for release sometime in the next few monthes, will be staying with me until he finds work and a place to live.....he has no particular profession, is very mild mannered likes to wear glasses has not such a high script but is nearsighted....his age i'm not sure about.....i met he and his girlfreind some years back and he was very willing to pose even with thick glasses....i will post some even earlier photo work that i did with him in and around tampa.....i'm going to publish all the fotos and videos(2) of my friend john from tampa...he has an incredibly high prescription and a i found a whole bunch of strong eyeglasses that belonged to some one else and they all work very well for him...the first few pics are of him with older origonal the middle ones are him with high index glass, with metal frames and the last are another pair that i found for him at the flea market...all in all there are about six pairs that work for him....


Sofsted 20 Oct 2012, 18:45

Wow this is a very sexy guy,when i saw the images he got me up,not only he is very nice but the wonderful thickness of the lenses with so many power rings is so beautiful especially in his retro frames,i guess that his rx is over -20

tivosesante may i ask you some information about him:name,age,place,work,rx and all the stuff that comes in your mind about him


tivosesante 20 Oct 2012, 16:40

Hey Sofsted,

Glad to see you come over from Lenschat to be with all of us!


GreginColo 14 Oct 2012, 11:25

Hi Kevin; from just the side view, it's hard to tell if those are Rx glasses or not, but my guess would be not, as its hard to see much lens thickness, either plus or minus. A front face view would be helpful to tell if there was any minification (minus Rx) or magnification (plus Rx)of the eyes, and background. Sorry no definitive answer here.


Kevin 14 Oct 2012, 09:09

Can anyone tell if these are prescription

i'm a 35 old male optometrist from Rome(Italy)

as you all i'm a guy who like guys with glasses so i'm asking your permission to enter in this club of guys who likes guy with glasses


GreginColo 13 Oct 2012, 17:04

It might be nice to have an XXX links thread for guy photos/videos and one for gal photos/videos so people could select based on their personal interests. Just an idea...


tivosesante 13 Oct 2012, 11:55

don't feel bad jo, i enjoyed the last one of the guy with a really powerful script.....let's take what we want and leave what we don't want, somebody else might enjoy what's left over....all in all they are not in great taste and i appreciate the fact that eyecene has not evolved into a hard core porn site, but an occasional slice of the other world wont kill us and to me the guy was very stimulating leave the cock and take the face and the glasses and run.....


tinyeyes 13 Oct 2012, 01:07

Went out the other evening to get a Chinese takeaway, and on the way back passed the local fish and chip shop which has a couple of chairs just inside. There was a young guy sitting in one with a pair of glasses on top of his head (short, crisp, fairish hair). Shades, I thought - but at this time of night? Not a bit of it! A quick look as I passed revealed black frames and minus lenses, not strong but not negligible either. As I moved on he got up, came out of the shop, and walked off in the direction I had come from without, as far as I could see, putting his glasses where he could see through them. Why do short-sighted guys not make use of their specs? I suppose he might have been heading for his car, in which case he presumably would need them.

Thanks Tivo for sharing you personal glasses fascination story; it started pretty young, as with myself. Let's hope some other guys share theirs also.


tivosesante 05 Oct 2012, 15:02

as greginC0lorado requested, i'm going to share some of my earliest memories....all the glasses then, when i was mayby four or five, were steel rimmed and i remember my earliest encounter accompanied by a lurid facination was of a boy named danny, sandy dark blond hair, teenage thick, strong glasses, not plano in front, steel rimmed of course and they made his eyes ever so small....they glimmered and then i remember my grandmother talking about them when i was sitting on her knee and i was lapping it up, no pun intended...later on in grade school, maybe around second or third grade my second discovery of a boy with very simular glasses and he was a loner, older who cut thru class rooms and seemed to not be part of the school regimen....he would pop up now and then over the years with his shinny glasses , he definitely was a true truant...but nevertheless there he would be from time to time....these are the only two note worthy sightings in my earlier years, until i came to n.y.c. in my early 20's or late teens and it was there that the fun began...a black boy in the village with very thick , now plastic rimmed glasses, another, white boy with big horn rimmed specs with lots of pronounced power rings...after all that it never stopped, just getting better and better all the time.....

GreginColo 02 Oct 2012, 20:11

I am always interested/curious about how/when other guys first discovered/became aware of their interest in Guys with Glasses, so I will post my own story in that regard, hoping that might encourage others to do the same.

For me, prior to grade 2, no really recollection of anything about glasses. It hit big time grade 2. A friend of mine had a big brother who drove us to school at times. Big Brother had glasses like I had never seen before; thick and shiny and things looked very tiny. That fascinated me to no end. Dating myself, this was before cars had seat belts in the back so I was able to scoosh around a bit and try to peak thru those thick lenses, and he was a guy to boot. I felt something during those 5 minute rides that I had never felt before. He soon left for the military (I heard he wanted Air Force but got Army instead because of his eyes; didn't know quite what it meant but it seemed exciting) so no more rides with him, but I was hooked, just didn't know or understand it at the time, like many things in my life.

Now to grade 3, two guys got glasses, one that made things (and his eyes) look smaller, the other that made things (and his eyes) look bigger, my fascination definately with the former. Always tried to get behind him in lunch line to get a glimpse of his tiny world, even though his glasses were likely not all that strong. One day he was without them, broken he said, so I was curious about what he was able to see, so tried to watch him even more closely that day, especially when he asked the teacher to move to the front of the class so he could see the lessons better. Thought that was pretty ballsy to admit he needed to move froward to better see the board. I admired him for that not fully realizing I should also be moving closer to the front. Grade 4, routine school eye exam, and I also needed glasses, don't remember the power or it meant nothing for me, but guessing -1.5 to -2, seems reasonable for a first myopic Rx. Was marvelled about how much better I could see. By then more guys were getting their initial minus scripts, always hoped someone would want to swap glasses with me, but no one ever did and I was not brave enough to suggest that with anyone. One days my glasses were "misplaced" at home (actually someone hid them for me) so I was forced to go to school without them. so I could understand the blur of the guy the year before. I didn't have the courage to ask to move closer but the teacher must have noticed my squinting so she asked me to. By the time I got home, my Mom had found my glasses so that was only experience being without my glasses for a longer period than I wanted.

From then, my Rx and myopcession continued to increase. The Rx eventually stabilized, myopcession didn't. Teenage years, "xxx dreams" were always about guys (that should have been a clue, but I was still clueless, and have been much of my life). in their glasses, always one that made things look tiny (later leaned the term minus power, etc, etc, etc).

Here's hoping to hear for some of the rest about the history of your own myopcession.


tivosesante 02 Oct 2012, 14:27

meant to say thankyou too, phillip for the thanks and aknowledgement...i don't know weather or not some of you know, is that you can click on to one of the prompts on the top tool bar of picasa and view other albums i have published...check them out.....

tivosesante 01 Oct 2012, 10:19

scott

to answer your inquiry about no.32.........his name is bori and he was kind enough to model for me for a few years from time to time, he does wear glasses and is nearsighted, but not as i depicted him although he has willinging posed with some of these strong glasses that have been given to me by other myopics who have either gotten new glasses or contacts...bori is presently encarcerated for a dubious charge, but should be released shortly.....later today i will upload my entire album on bori with and with out glasses...will post the link as soon as i get organized....thankyou for your interest.....


russell 30 Sep 2012, 20:34

On the new season of "Secret Princes," the Indian prince wears glasses full-time and has five pair that I've counted so far. The Spanish Prince, Cisco, was sporting black rims in the second episode (apparently pre-contact lens insertion.) Cisco is hot, with or without glasses.


scott 30 Sep 2012, 16:28

tivosesante,

I cannot stop myself from looking at your wonderful pictures of the gorgeous guys in glasses. They are all great looking guys but number 32 out of 35 in the first set simply makes me so aroused. Will we be able to find out their names and rxs?


scott 30 Sep 2012, 10:33

Heaven!!

Where do you meet all these guys tivosesante? Do they know eachother? Man you are very lucky. Some are real hunks in glasses.


tivosesante 30 Sep 2012, 08:09

greginColo....as far as i know john is in the high 20's.....elijah is -20 in the left eye.......junior was -14 on his last exam......roscoe is -11........i will let you know when i get more info....dayrle i never see anymore .......victor won't talk to me and i beleive now he's a closeted goc er .....unfortunatly i never got fotos of reggiie who was -16 and only a poor foto of robert...later on i will put names with these guys....something about victor...he constantly was changing glasses and then actually went to plus and when he sees me he seems to act very strange, like i might know what he's doing......


Phillip 30 Sep 2012, 07:58

tivosesante,

Thank you so much for posting the second set of pictures. They will keep me very active for hours, no days. Months!!

I hardly dare ask if you have any more.

When you meet these guys you must be so hard.


gregincolo 30 Sep 2012, 07:41

Phillip and Scott...I know what you mean. I don't know this for sure, but I am guessing most, if not all, of Tivo's photos are real Rx's, and would appear to avearge about -30, give or take 5. Tivo, any info you could share on this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Are these guys going GOC or do they have a real rx?

Thank you tivosesante

GreginColo 29 Sep 2012, 10:42

A nice Saturday morning myoguy sighting worth sharing. Was out running around to a few yard sales this morning before beginning more productive activities for the day. At one house I stopped at, the seller was a tallish, quite attractive guy probably right around 40 y/o. Enhancing his already attractiveness were the super stylish high minus glasses that he was sporting on his face. They were the newer wrap around style with bronze color metal frames. With the wrap around it was hard guess the Rx but the thickness and reflection would cause me to guess at least high single digits. I got up the courage to say "Hey man, I really like your glasses, quite stylish," hoping that might encourage some related conversation from him, but it didn't. All I got was one of those "what?" kind of looks. I wanted to ask if I could snap a picture of him, but didn't summon that level of courage. Nontheless, I did linger at that sale a bit longer than I otherwise might have, and looked around at his sale stuff a little more closely just in case he had some old glasses in there. No such luck, but still a nice way to begin the day.


GreginColo 26 Sep 2012, 07:38

And thank you Tivo, your kindness and concern toward this significantly myopic man is no doubt greatly appreciated, and is what makes the world a better place for all of us.


tivosesante 26 Sep 2012, 07:06

thankyou gregincolo for your comment..here is a before and after foto set of my freind john...the high index glasses are a result of several pairs that i found at a flea market in tampa, and most of them are very close if not exact in prescription to john's.....the first low index cr 39's are what he was wearing when i first met him...he only occasionally wears them now......https://picasaweb.google.com/105066828604706326817

Scott (different one) 25 Sep 2012, 05:46

I sometimes see a man sitting outside a pub in Camden(north London) who wears myo- disc lenses that look quite thin,

He seems to have two pairs, probably distance and reading,but I,ve also seen him take his glasses off to use an iPad, and to operate the screen with his nose.


gregincolo 25 Sep 2012, 01:00

Jack, one more thought to ponder if you would. If it would be in your comfort zone to share some of your optical history, with us, both the challenges and the rewards, I am sure others of us would find that quite interesting. Or if doing that by email would be more acceptable, let me know. Thanks.


gregincolo 24 Sep 2012, 19:57

Welcome Jack and thanks for sharing you thoughts with us, especially the suggestion about talking with a guy about his glasses rather than just secretly wondering about them. I hope you will consider sharing a picture sometime.


Jack 24 Sep 2012, 12:52

Jim suggested I should post here. It doesn't upset me, at all, that many men find guys in powerful minus glasses attractive. If guys use contact lenses to be able to wear thick glasses I am flattered.

Some of us who have to wear these type of glasses also feel similar feelings to those described in previous posts. I am really attracted to Jim when he wears his thick myodiscs with GOC.

Please feel free to chat to any guy you see wearing thick glasses. He has most probably accepted long ago his need and may well welcome open discussion. He could even get turned on by your attention.

tivosesante 24 Sep 2012, 04:23

it's been interesting all the chat about us as a minority and our coming out at least unto one another in this cyber media, which has made it feel safer to be ourselves......i wonder sometimes if we are really indeed a minority or simply a minority that has reached out....interesting also is the phasing out of the elements that facinated us so, particularly if you are my age (80) and find less and less really notiiable glasses with solid thickness and power rings......i have been fortunate like many of you have related in that i have encountered over the years a lot of guys with really strong glasses......my lover of 12 years now, who is 20 years my junior, although we don't live together we are still commited.........and i have to add that the guy who i have referred to as john from tampa, who still sports the thickest and strongest glasses i have ever seen on a guy, maybe with the exception of one person way back.....john and i continue to become closer and i have to add that he is not a person that is easy to get to know or will he generally show any trust at any level, but he little by little he is......surprisingly he has allways allowed me to take fotos of him and the other day i did my frst videl of him....


Julian 24 Sep 2012, 02:10

Greg; although power rings and minification have their own appeal (as my home-made screensaver shows!) I'm less selective: any g/l guy with well-chosen glasses does it for me...see my recent postings about two cute foureyed cashiers at Tesco.

Love and kisses, Jules.

Spexy guys are sexy guys.


tinyeyes 23 Sep 2012, 23:54

Here are a couple more:

1. Have you ever gone on a date or two with a guy who didn't wear glasses, and then went to his house/apartment, and needed to use the restroom, at which point you took the opportunity to check the bathroom for contact lens/glasses paraphernalia? And, on a rare lucky occasion, did you find seriously thick glasses in a case next to contact cases and solution? And then did you try those glasses on (removing your own contact lens to check the RX if you're very myopic yourself)?

2. Or, did you go on a couple of dates with a guy, and then on the third date, he shows up with coke-bottles on, tiny-eyed? You heart skips beats while you pretend to be nonchalant, while you are suddenly extremely excited and ten times more attracted to him? You casually compliment his glasses, and he mentions that his contacts were just so dried out and he needed a rest from them tonight. Lucky you!

(Yes, both of these have happened to me.)


gregincolo 23 Sep 2012, 22:46

OOps, forgot one:

Have you ever...

Wished there could be a gathering, convention, meeting,or whatever you envision it to be, of high myopic guy (himyguy)fans. Another poster also posted this possible desire earlier, but I have also have often thought about this, thinking there had to be others than me with this fascination?


gregincolo 23 Sep 2012, 22:38

Have you everÖ..

1) Been in a store; you spot a good looking (g/l) himyguy (high myopic guy)and adjust your shopping pattern to better match his, including making sure you are in the checkout line behind him (even though other lines are open)?

2) Been leaving a store and g/l himyguy walks toward the store; you remember what you forgot (or didnít) and ( repeat 1 above)?.

3) Been waiting for a cashier/teller/attendant, etc and notice one to be a g/l himyguy. You make sure to go to his line/station and treat him extra nice? (a win/win)

4)Been in a restaurant and you waiter is a g/l himyguy; the service is good with a lot of nice small talk; you are a little extra generous with the tip? (another win/win)

5)Been waiting for a haircut with only one stylist on duty; youíre up next; a g/l himiguy walks in and seems in a bit of a hurry; youíre not, so you offer him your slot and enjoy watching him squint his way through the haircut ? (another win/win) Youíre secretly wondering what would happen if the stylist lost his glasses?.

6) Been driving or biking down a road and notice a g/l himyguy out for a walk or run; you take an extra loop around the block, or maybe two if he is shirtless?

7)Seen a g/l himiguy couple (yes ,both himyguys) and wonder if they consider their myopia an attraction or a distraction to their relationship; you also wonder if they leave their glasses on during times of intimacy or go bare-eyed?.

8)Been at your optometrist and get aroused waIting for the Doc knowing there is a g/l himyguy in the next room and wishing you could ďseeĒ that exam as it took place; or wished that you would chosen optometry as a career, but realizing that may have been too obvious?

9)Strolled thru optical stores hoping to see a g/l himyguy trying on frames with his face pretty close to the mirror? Youíre secretly wishing he would ask you to help him select a frame.

10) Lingered in the locker room a bit longer when you notice glasses cases or contact supplies on the counter hoping to watch a himyguy switch between the two? (see my true locker room story in an earlier post.)

11)Seen a g/l himyguy with his glasses off, (shower.sauna, just rubbing his eyes,use your imagination, etc) and wishing you could experience his vision for a bit; wanting to ask him what he can really see or not but you donít, donít want to seem weird.

12)Wonder what it might be like for a himyguy to have to go bare-eyed in a strange setting for the better part of a day? (stay tuned for a future true story post on this).

13) Had lasik surgery and wish you wouldnít have as you truly miss the myopic connection?

14) Been attracted to a guy because of his myopia?

15) Thought you were the only one with a fascination for himyguys and once you realize there are others that you can connect with in this regard, you wonder about theirs stories as to how, when, where they became aware of this fascination as how it has affected their lives? (I will have a more detailed post on this sometime in the future)

I can answer yes to each of the above, as well as some others better shared in private. How about it guys, any others of you done any of the above, or have any himyguy "have you evers?" you might want to share?


scott 23 Sep 2012, 10:50

I am very happy you had a chat on the train Jim. Because of these postings I have met Jamie on lenchat. Only possible because of you Jim. Enjoy tonight, as if you could fail to do so!!!!


Jim 23 Sep 2012, 10:42

tinyeyes

The first HMC high myopes conference is on tonight!!!

Let's all put our heads together to think of a plan. Real guys beats pictures hands down.


Jim 23 Sep 2012, 10:39

Who would have thought one simple chat on a train would go so far. Good to meet many of you guys this afternoon on lenschat.com

Jack is coming over tonight. He has asked me to wear my stronger GOC minus glasses, have to keep pinching myself.

We'll be able to swap glasses after dinner. OMG again


gregincolo 23 Sep 2012, 10:29

Tinyeyes; I have also wondered, fanticized, about a conference or gathering of guys similarly interested in hi-myope guys; seems like it could be such a fun thing to do. Problem is we seem to be pretty geographically dispersed, at least those of us who have opened up recently.


tinyeyes 23 Sep 2012, 10:20

Wow, all this activity is very exciting! I hope we get to see photos of Jack eventually! Sometimes I wish there was a way all us OOs could meet, a High Minus Conference or something. Joking, but half-serious...


GreginColo 23 Sep 2012, 09:39

Thanks guys for sharing your posts and Jim glad you have been able to spend some time with the guy you met on the subway.


Jamie32 23 Sep 2012, 08:51

So great to see new blood in this group, and so happy for you guys to feel you can now be open about your love of guys in glasses. Look forward to hearing more from all of you :)


scott 23 Sep 2012, 06:36

Sounds wonderful Jim. Do you go on lenschat.com?


Jim 23 Sep 2012, 06:23

Got back mid morning. Instant chemistry just like when we met on the underground. Been introduced to the alternatives to pictures.

So pleased you guys have felt able to discuss how you are feeling.


scott 23 Sep 2012, 04:18

Thank you Greg for being so supportive. Yesterday I registered with lenschat.com and chatted to several people. Hope to speak to you there.


Phillip 23 Sep 2012, 03:34

Greg it's good to hear your story. It can be a lonely life using thick lenses and pictures to satisfy our needs. Maybe there are only three of us who feel like this, but at least we are not alone.

I hope Jim is able to update us on how his evening went. I cant imagine being with a real myope, with thick glasses, and not a photo.


GreginColo 22 Sep 2012, 15:38

Hi Scott; I am definately like you in that regard, so there's at least two of us and I am sure many more if truth were to be known, and have only recently opened up about it and finally got the courage to share the locker room sighting that I had a while back. It's good to know there are others who have this fascination and can talk with one another about it, and possibly share pictures, stories, etc. Congratulations on expanding your comfort zone to be able to take the big step to open up and share this important part of your (and others of us) life and of who you are. Regards, Greg.


scott 22 Sep 2012, 15:17

Trying to come to terms about being open. It was my secret for so long. It is such a big part of my life. No, it is my life. I live and breathe strong glasses on guys.

How many more are like me?


GreginColo 22 Sep 2012, 14:01

I am always interested/curious about how and when other guys developed or became aware of their interest in myopic guys, so I will be sharing my personal story on this in the near future now that I am more comfortable that I am not the only one in the world with this unusual, but exciting, fascination. Philip and Scott, I am pretty similar to you guys in how I "handle" this fascination, so if you would want to chat or exchange some of your favorite pictures sometime, I would be open to that, although I am away from the computer much of the day, probably a good thing. My email was posted a few posts back. Greg, (aka myopmanfan.)


Phillip 22 Sep 2012, 09:04

Thanks GreginColo, I am so pleased to have posted a thread.

scott I am like you, a closet optical obsessive and gay too. I practise my obsession at home, in private, by wearing thick glasses and using pictures of highly myopic guys to arouse me. I would love to be Jim tonight.


GreginColo 22 Sep 2012, 08:20

Jim; thanks for sharing with us about your upcoming meeting with Jack; hope it goes well.

Scott & Phillip; welcome and thanks for taking the initiatives to make your first posts; that's what keeps this thread going and interesting to those of us who are myopmanfans.


scott 22 Sep 2012, 05:44

After years of reading both the old/new eyescene posts and all vision-and-spex messages I have come out of the woodwork and posted myself for the first time.

Jim your experiences with the -29 guy has made me very jealous. My experiences are restricted to wearing medium goc glasses at home and going onto every link published on this thread on eyescene. Over the years I have downloaded hundreds/ thousands of images and printed many. The twelve best pictures of hunky sexy guys in thick glasses, all but one are high minus, have been framed and hang in my bedroom.

My own real experience is with the goc at home. I've never actually had enough courage to chat to a real myope but admit to having followed plenty around shopping malls just to get that extra glimpse. At home I put in my contacts and enjoy the minus 11 glasses infront of the twelve pictures. They are stimulating and I am sure many guys understand how they bring gratification.

Jim I can only imagine what will happen tonight. Enjoy every minute.


Phillip 22 Sep 2012, 03:41

I have read eyescene for so long but never posted.

Jim you are doing what many of us would love to do but dare not. I look at guys in thick glasses but dare not speak to them. Enjoy tonight!!


kiwi 22 Sep 2012, 02:04

Jim, will you be wearing glasses for tonight's meeting with Jack?


peter 22 Sep 2012, 01:41

You are a lucky guy Jim.


Jim 22 Sep 2012, 01:30

I plucked up courage to phone the guy, I now know he is called Jack, and we are meeting up this evening for a drink. Now it really is OMG

Gregin Colo, I'll share a photo if Jack is happy about it.


GreginColo 21 Sep 2012, 21:55

Guest; you can email me at gbruny@hotmail.com


guest 21 Sep 2012, 20:00

Gregin Colo - is there a way to write to you? I may have an additional place for you to share your story


Gregin Colo 21 Sep 2012, 18:14

Thanks, Tinyeyes, for your feedback; glad you enjoyed the recount of my locker room experience where a fairly myopic guys was bare-eyed for a bit longer than he expected. It was kind of stimulating to remember it in enough details to put it into writing to share. Speaking of words, some of your comments about the guys you post on the GWTG site are just about as hot, and stimulating, as the pictures themselves.

Please keep up the good work. I do have another true-life story of a higher myopic guy forced to go bare-eyed for most of a day, that I need to get put on paper to share with others.

Jim, thanks for you sighting of cute -29 guy in London. If you ever happen to get a picture of him, I hope you consider sharing. Thanks


kiwi 21 Sep 2012, 14:10

Jim, you are such a lucky guy. I live in London and have never seen this adonis. Please keep us posted on any developments.


Jim 21 Sep 2012, 10:47

Just been on London Underground. Since the Olympics people chat to eachother more. I sat next to a beautiful guy with short dark hair, tanned complexion, slim build wearing very tight and revealing trousers. My eyes moved upward to his face. He had the thickest minus glasses I'd ever seen, all the usual attributes, cut-in, power rings and lens thickness. Best of all, the tiniest squint when he looked around. Aroused and excited I was desperate to chat to him. When he turned to me and started to converse it was heavenly. After some time I gathered the courage to ask about his glasses. Myopic since a little boy, now aged 27, he wears minus 29D myos, and for real.

He gave me his phone number, omg.


tnyeyes 21 Sep 2012, 08:43

Wow, the locker room story is great! Things like this don't happen too often. I know it was a frustrating time for the guy, and I don't wish that on him (since the same thing could easily happen to me) but the silver lining was that it was an exciting experience for you (and you helped him.) Even if a made up story, this is good, but it almost sounds "stranger than fiction". Thanks for sharing.


Gregin Colo 20 Sep 2012, 20:32

I wanted to share an interesting happening of recent. I went to my gym a little later than normal as I didnít have to work that day. One area of the gym has an oval track that is 1/16 of a mile, so I usually walk it every morning 16 times to get a mile in; I donít run much anymore due to my middle aged knees. Inside the oval are cardio machines and around the outer edge of the oval are various weight machines, so I try to include some of each in my workout. While I would like to say I go the gym to keep in shape, thatís just part of it. I also like to see myopic (the more so the better) guys working out in their glasses or switching from contacts to glasses or visa-versa.

That day, just as I was getting ready to leave, a nice looking guy, Iím guessing mid-40ís came in wearing some quite attractive, but pretty powerful glasses, I would guess around -10ís, give or take a diopter or two either way. He settled into one of the weight machines outside the track so I decided to walk an extra mile or two, since I didnít have to rush off to work. I tried to make some eye contact with him on my laps around but he seemed more interested in his workout . After about 20 minutes, I noticed he was gone, so I decided to head to the showers (one large room with about a dozen showerheads) just in case he was also showering. Sure enough, he was in there but with no sign of his glasses, and just the two of us in the shower room as the normal morning rush has already passed. Given my own situation I was hoping I could see him better than he could me, which proved to be the case with how close he had to stick has face to the wall to see the soap/shampoo dispenser. I was presuming he left his glasses in the sink area outside the shower room, as guys often do, but I hadnít noticed them there. He left the shower area, so I made sure my towel was tightly in place and did the same. He was in the locker bank across the aisle from mine so I could see as he squinted his nose into the various lockers looking for his clothing, and probably most importantly, his glasses. I could tell he was becoming frustrated/panicked so decided to see if I could assist, so I walked across the aisle, still holding my towel firmly in place, introduced myself, and asked if he needed help. He said he was certain he had left his clothes (both gym and street) , keys , and glasses, in one of those lockers but now could not find them, and could not see very well at all without his glasses, which is why he usually didnít even bring a lock in.

felt sorry for the guy but was also excited about the situation, keeping good hold on my own towel. He never offered his name back, but I told him I would quickly dress and see what I could do to help him. Again I was glad the locker room was pretty empty and he could not see me very well. While I quickly dressed, he continued to peer his face into the various lockers, but no success. I then explained to him that I could sympathize with his situation as I used to be pretty myopic myself, before lasik (yes, a mistake). I asked him if he had extra glasses or contacts, or clothes, in his car that I could retrieve for him. He said he hadnít been able to wear contacts for a couple of years and he did have prescription sunglasses in the car but his keys were in the same place as his clothes and glasses. His myopic lack of focus seemed to be of great frustration to him, and would be expected for someone of his script, so I asked him if he lived nearby and I could go retrieve spare glasses or a spare set of keys from his spouse or roommate. No, he lived alone, he said.

We finally concluded that likely someone else had accidently snapped their lock shut on the locker where his stuff was , as there were occupied but unlocked lockers of either side of the one he thought was his, but which had a lock on it. I offered to go ask club management to make an announcement so see if we could find the lock owner. Just then, another guy walked up, realized his mistake, apologized , and quickly opened the locked locker. Sure enough, there were Myoguyís clothes, keys, and most importantly to him, his glasses; I never saw someone so happy to get their glasses back on their face. He dressed quickly and mumbled a thanks. I asked him if he wanted to grab a coffee, but he said he needed to get on his way, likely still feeling pretty embarrassed, which I tried to downplay. I was hoping I might run into him again sometime, but havenít, but this definitely made for an exciting day at the gym, as well as some interesting memories.


Julian 20 Sep 2012, 08:46

I really enjoy a TV quiz game called Blockbusters which is shown on the Challenge channel here in the UK. At the moment they're showing editions from 1992, which are far more fun than the series of new ones they put on a few months ago. These old ones have senior school kids as contestants (so they must now be in their late 30s!) and the winners got great prizes for themselves and sometimes for their schools as well. A single player competes against a team of two; and for a while this week all three contestants were boys with glasses - round glasses, all of them, and all different! The single player (short dark hair) had retro round tortoiseshell frames, with, I think, a low minus Rx. One of the others (untidy shoulder-length dark hair) had black wire frames with a high joint, and his partner, definitely the cutest of the three, had short dark hair and low joint gold frames, like Harry Potter's but without the black covering. What's more, in due course the single guy was eliminated and was replaced by a girl who also wore round glasses - big gold frames and plus lenses. Oh well, it was good while it lasted!


Julian 15 Sep 2012, 11:33

Shopping in Tesco this afternoon, I spotted another good-looking guy with glasses manning a till. I wasn't able to join the line for him to deal with my few purchases; but I did manage a look at him. He was slim and fairly tall with short dark hair, and his glasses had wire fronts (I think), black temples with a white line running along the bottom edge, and minus lenses, not negligible. A nice sight.


jo 15 Sep 2012, 00:08

the -30 is for real!


GreginColo 14 Sep 2012, 20:58

Thanks JO for the great new material, especially the vidoes; as other have mentioned, they are pretty hot.


James 14 Sep 2012, 06:44

Jo - I also want to add a thank you for these amazing guys. Is the guy in the videos for real or a GOC. Doesn't make much difference but would add some degree of hotness to know it was a real Rx


Dave 14 Sep 2012, 01:02

Hi Jo -- I agree with tinyeyes, the guys you have posted are awesome. The -30 in the videos is so hot, but then again, so are so many of the others. I have begun to appreciate, more and more, all of the Asian guys here in S.F. who are so amazingly myopic and good-looking, too. My next door neighbor has just returned from three months in Taiwan and looking better than ever in his new glasses. I'll bet he's at least a -11 in his left eye and at least a -10 in the right. Totally hot in a nerdy sort of way. And as for the guy who takes care of my car ... well, what can I say. He's so cute and his glasses kind of put the frosting on the cake. Keep posting!!


tinyeyes 14 Sep 2012, 00:30

Jo, your latest album was just what I needed this morning. Damn, I could get really spoiled on these high prescription guys! Anything less than 12 diopters seems like nothing now! The guy in the videos, particularly, is amazing.


Jo 13 Sep 2012, 06:25

More Asian Guys...

Cactus Jack 12 Sep 2012, 11:08

Julian,

For the "upper half" half glasses to work really well, the Rx needs to be very nearly the same in both eyes, little or no astigmatism, and an Rx of -2.50 or less.

C.


Julian 12 Sep 2012, 10:56

I've just been away for a few days in a group led by two guys in their early fifties. The cuter one (fair hair, dimples) wore rimless glasses with a low minus prescription and usually took them off to read. The other also wore rimless glasses, also minus and a bit stronger, which he never seemed to take off; BUT the lenses were shallow/narrow from top to bottom and he wore them high on his nose, so that he was looking under them to read, rather like half-moon readers in reverse - logical enough, but this is only the second time I've seen anyone use minus glasses that way


 07 Sep 2012, 22:00

Some great looking, and very smart, myopic anchors on MSNBC, including Chris Hayes, Ezra Klein, Steve Kornacki, Sam Seder, etc, almost always seen in their glasses, some fairly high power. Myopmanfan


Romeo 04 Sep 2012, 08:11

Great to see you again here Tamas, so are you really -9 now? Any chance of getting in contact with you? Do you use skype, facebook or msn/yahoo messenger?


sam12744 03 Sep 2012, 17:54

Hi Tamas,

Great to hear from you; you have been missed!


Jim 03 Sep 2012, 11:12

Relieved to hear you're okay -14. Don't know how I thought you used a wheelchair.

Tamas good to get your message here. Your pictures are surely missed by many of us.


Tamas 03 Sep 2012, 10:51

Hey guys!!

Here I am, I was informed that someone asked about me here... and well, here I am!

Still alive lol :)


-14 03 Sep 2012, 10:38

Jim

well after a quick trip to Lourdes I am now wheelchair free! Actually never have needed one. Oh, Tam is as goodlooking as ever.


Jim 03 Sep 2012, 08:04

But any guy in thick glasses looks hot.


Jim 03 Sep 2012, 06:05

Tamas always looked really sexy.


Romeo 03 Sep 2012, 03:44

Thank you guys for your replies.

Well, yes, I think I was talking about Tamas. I didn't remember the name at first...

I am very happy to hear that he is not needing a wheelchair now. Looks strange to me as he seemed to be a fulltime user but well, that's good for him.

You guys know these details because you're still in contact with him?

Very cool that he's a -9 now, he must be very sexy with them!!


Jim 02 Sep 2012, 05:27

Sorry, last post was from me.


 02 Sep 2012, 02:10

-14 that is good news about Tamas not needing a wheelchair or crutches. How about you -14, are you still a wheelchair user?


-14 01 Sep 2012, 22:36

Tamas is now a legit -9 and no longer needs a wheelchair or crutches.


Krieger 01 Sep 2012, 19:28

Yes Tamas18 used GOC as a matter of fact he used to do the front page for all the guys with glasses groups but then he decided to leave and withdrew all his pictures. I have some in an old computer, I guess


sam12744 01 Sep 2012, 17:33

Romeo,

Could the Italian guy be Tamas? He wore -14 (goc), is very good looking and uses a wheelchair.


tivosesante 01 Sep 2012, 10:51

romero, i don't know who you might mean about the guy from spain or italy, but posibly the guy from south america could be thyago......if so i have an archive on him, including videos.....


Romeo 01 Sep 2012, 10:41

Hello people,

I am an old fan of ES.

I used to browse also the old "Guys in Glasses" yahoo groups, and I loved some of the guys I saw there.

Before they will be deleted (sadly I think it will happen soon) I want to create my own archive of cute guys in glasses.

I was looking at the pics in the group and I sadly noticed that some have disappeared.

I remember of a great looking guy wearing very strong glasses (I think about -12), European from Spain, or Italy.

I think he had a SCI and used a wheelchair in some photos.

His pics are not in the club. Do any of you remember him or is still in contact? I'd love to see how he looks now and if he has stronger rx!

I remember also another guy from South America, with some great prism glasses and a slight strabismus.

Same: do you remember him or are in contact?

Thanks


kiwi 01 Sep 2012, 09:53

That was great Kevin


James 31 Aug 2012, 02:41

Here's an article where Jake Peavy says he has astigmatism and can only be corrected to 20/40. He says these things in the context of not being able to see the catcher's signals during the game.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/whitesox/ct-spt-0723-white-sox-bits--20120723,0,7659486.story

Also, lots of new photos of some serious myopes here:

sydneycider 31 Aug 2012, 01:25

@ Tinyeyes I kinda thort he'd be higher than -6 but I think I'm better with plus rx's these days. Still quite a rare find down here, down under :)


tinyeyes 31 Aug 2012, 00:50

This player was -12/-11.5 before surgery! Amazing! Oh, to have seen him with his glasses...!

http://youtu.be/KRwHbnCAsck


tinyeyes 31 Aug 2012, 00:33

Thanks for the link with the baseball player.

There was another pro player who had ICL eye surgery who was even more myopic ( -11 or more) but I could never find pics of him in glasses. This guy is hot! Looks like he's about -6 or so? It's always surprising to see someone from pro sports in a stronger RX.


kiwi 30 Aug 2012, 16:11

Hi Kevin,

It would be fun to chat on lenschat.com


Kevin 30 Aug 2012, 13:48

Kiwi - I also live in the UK. Give me your email if you wanna chat?


James 30 Aug 2012, 07:16

kiwi 30 Aug 2012, 01:13

hi nzoptic

From Northland, and you? Living in London at the present playing rugby for a gay team.

Present lifestyle in UK more accepting of me wearing strong spex goc. Also many more guys here with powerful glasses, even two on the team goc as well.


NZOPTIC 29 Aug 2012, 22:29

Kiwi are you from New Zealand?, I am


kiwi 29 Aug 2012, 06:22

Which is best site to view highly myopic guys in thick glasses?


only me 27 Aug 2012, 14:47

I agree Julian keep up and you have your on tread for a long time and you have also been here a very long time I found Eyescene when I got internet in 1995 and from what I can remember you were already there back then. Oh dear what memorys I canīt describe the feeling when I found the site I as many others believed I was the only one with this fetish or attraction for guys in glasses !!

My very best...


Juicebox 26 Aug 2012, 19:27

Julian,

Please don't listen to them! Post on your thread! It's got your name on it after all :)


Julian 26 Aug 2012, 11:48

Thanks Sam. Just to follow up on another jotting (6 June on J*****'s j******s) I went shopping for a few items at Tesco this afternoon (unusual for me on a Sunday) and for the first time since I mentioned him was assisted by Scott, whom I described then. The boy is definitely somewhat myopic.


sam12744 26 Aug 2012, 09:24

Julian,

Nice sightings. Don't let the b**tards grind you down!


Julian 26 Aug 2012, 06:56

Two jottings from Julian ( I'm posting them here to avoid any more flak!):

I had an engineer round the other day to attend to my dishwasher, and he did a brilliant job, repairing the electronics with a soldering iron! He was a big butch guy, not a beauty in any way, but very pleasant and efficient. I did however find his glasses interesting. The frames were fairly ordinary in shape, in dark blue wire, but the lenses fascinated me. As I watched him at work, there would be minification at one moment and magnification at the next - a clear case of mixed astigmatism (plus in one meridian and minus at right angles to it).

Later the same day I went to a supermarket filling station for fuel, and the cashier was a delicious young man: pale complexion, dark hair, moderate minus lenses in black wayfarer frames - quite made my day!


tinyeyes 24 Aug 2012, 01:14

Jo: Thank you, thank you for your photos. What a paradise of incredibly myopic guys you seem to live in! I think my current favorite is the muscular -19 hottie in Asian Guys 3.


Jo 21 Aug 2012, 20:56

unfortunately, that guy doesn't have a page. he's someone i picked up from the streets.


lovegwg 21 Aug 2012, 09:31

post that page of -30 guy

please


jo 21 Aug 2012, 06:58

lovegwg.. i do have, but they are from all over the place that its hard for me to consolidate. besides, all the sites are in Chinese and you will have a hard time navigating, unless you know the language.

here's one: bf99.com.. you check it out.


lovegwg 21 Aug 2012, 05:55

re jo

if you have their links of skype oovoo or facebook or anywhere you found them post it i like to become their friend


Jo 20 Aug 2012, 09:07

nice to hear you guys like them. i'll be on the lookout for more and will keep you guys posted. stay tuned!


Krieger 19 Aug 2012, 10:09

Well I just love the guy with -30 and the vid, wow! Would love to be in touch aguerreroh at gmail dot com


Dave 19 Aug 2012, 09:53

Jo -- Many thanks for the pics!!

My favorite is in your July 17 group: Pictures 228 - 234. A truly handsome -14. Wow! And I'm not that into Asians but when I am ...


Jo 19 Aug 2012, 06:24

Most welcome! WIll be nice to hear from you guys which are the pics that gives the most reaction and see if we share the same tastes....lol!


Krieger 19 Aug 2012, 06:08

Jo, you made me so happy!! Thank you, I just love asian men with glasses


tivosesante 18 Aug 2012, 20:16

And in yesterday's Lightweight Men's Double Sculls Final A at Eton Dorney, Stany Delayre, wins gold for glasses. During the line-up for restart, TV coverage showed him pulling off his specs to clear a lens. That's at 2h54m58s into the BBC replay.

Plenty of pics online: http://franceolympique.com/art/3077-3_questions_a..._stany_delayre.html

Omar Assar played Table Tennis for Egypt at the Olympics yesterday and yes, he was wearing specs. He looks to have mid-range myopia, certainly dependent, and the commentator commented that he's one of the few to wear specs.

Dave 25 Jul 2012, 10:59

tinyeyes -- If you want to replicate a -34's visual "experience" why don't you buy some +20 contacts on-line which would give you an approximately -30 prescription. I'm sure that you'd find that you'd only see blobs and that your nighttime vision would be nearly non-existent.

If you wanted to correct your "new" vision with glasses and by factoring in a vertex distance requiring another -4 of lens strength, you'd probably be replicating Mr. -34s visual experience pretty closely without his very high astigmatism of -6.


Cactus Jack 24 Jul 2012, 12:27

tinyeyes,

Thanks. You might be able to get an idea of the difference in uncorrected blurriness by trying on the strongest readers you can find without your glasses. However, the very best way would be to ask your Eye Care Professional to let you try some +10 lenses in his trial frame and then some +20s or the highest + lenses he has. With your Rx, the +20s would be pretty close to needing -30 glasses. While you might see some difference, I really doubt you would be able to identify any unfamiliar object at any distance other than very close without correction.

If you get a chance to try it, please let us know your impressions of significantly more uncorrected myopia than you have.

Remember that optically, all glasses or contacts do is neutralize or cancel out existing refractive errors. In your case, your eye's optical system has about 8 dippers (with adjustment for vertex distance) more plus than it needs to focus an images on your retina and your minus lenses cancel that out. To simulate higher myopia, you just need some additional external plus from either contacts or glasses. Contacts would really be best, but trial lenses work just fine.

tinyeyes 24 Jul 2012, 00:06

Thanks, Cactus Jack.

OK, here's my latest eyeglass RX:

OD -9.5-.75 x 180

OS -9.25-.50 x 180


Cactus Jack 23 Jul 2012, 06:44

tinyeyes,

Once an image gets really blurry with just some colored blobs, more blurry doesn't make much difference. A -20 eye focuses at 5 cm or about 2 inches. A -34 eye focuses at about 3 cm or just a bit over an inch. With that much myopia, it is very likely that the eyeball is significantly elongated and the retina is not a perfectly smooth section of a sphere. On top of that, vertex distance effects in glasses would be about 0.4 diopters per mm at -20 and over 1 diopter per mm at -34 so keeping the glasses at the correct distance from the cornea can be a problem. Of course, any correction would be better than none. -20 contacts are available on line and higher values can be custom made. Theoretically, contacts should be better than glasses, at least for a significant part of the correction, because they are on the surface of the cornea. A better solution would be internal "contact" lenses because the lenses are closer to the optimal location within the eye and there is little or no vertex distance caused minification of the images.

If you could provide your Rx, I might be able to suggest an experiment so you can get a better idea of what is going on visually, with high myopia.

C.

tinyeyes 23 Jul 2012, 00:17

Thanks for the insight, Dave. Very interesting.... so the vision without correction isn't that different, but the vision with glasses is. It sort of makes sense. At -34, the distortion and minification are so extreme, it would be difficult to deal with for sure. I would think contacts, even gas permeable, would be very thick and uncomfortable at that level of RX. From what I understand, the edge of the contact lens has a limit of how thick it can be, and of course at -34 would need to be very thick indeed. The lens would have to have an edge without prescription around the edge so it could be thinner, similar to the myodisc eyeglasses also needed at this level. I don't know if that's possible with gas perms or with soft lenses, or with either. I guess this is the wrong forum for such technical questions. At any rate, -34 is a very interesting RX!


Dave 22 Jul 2012, 16:14

Tinyeyes -- I'd expect that there's no significant visual difference between an uncorrected -20 and an uncorrected -34: you just can't see much of anything. The difference corrected is where the rubber meets the road. There's no way Mr. -34 could have normal vision with glasses, and I doubt he could drive. That said, everyone is different and a couple of people I know who are in their low -20s see pretty well -- well enough to drive with glasses and not contacts. Speaking of contacts, I'm sure they're available in that strength (probably gas permeable, not soft) although he might be one of those people who can't wear them successfully.


tinyeyes 21 Jul 2012, 02:36

Wow. -34, for real? I would like to know more about guys like this. Are they handicapped or do they have normal vision with glasses? Can they drive?

With -34, what would the blur without glasses be like? I would think that you literally would have to feel for your glasses. It would be almost like being blind. How about contacts? Are they a possibility? At what RX level do they become impractical? I would certainly enjoy spending some time with Mr. -34. As extreme as it is, I'm sure these stratospheric RXs are more common in Asia.


Jo 20 Jul 2012, 03:35

hi Tinyeyes, unfortunately, that is the only pic i could get out of him.. apparently, yes, he is indeed -30.. perhaps even more since his last change of specs was like 5 years ago. and he claims that his vision is deteriorating...how he functions without his glasses is really up to our imagination...very wild ones i have. :)


Jamie32 17 Jul 2012, 08:01

Nice tumblr Adam!


AdamB 17 Jul 2012, 06:46

Hi all,

Not posted on here since 2004 but have been reading the thread every so often. Following on from Tinyeyes guyswiththickglasses blog I thought I'd do one of my own and put all the pics i've been collecting over the years into one place. There aren't really any with really strong prescriptions and some may well have been posted elsewhere previously. I've currently uploaded 57 pics and will follow up with more over the next few days. The link is:

tinyeyes 16 Jul 2012, 00:29

The guy in picture 71 (with -30 glasses) blows my mind! I would love to see more pics of him. If it's really his RX, I would like to see how he deals with wearing them and also not wearing them! I find the extremely tiny eyes so hot. What must his vision be like without those glasses?


Dave 15 Jul 2012, 10:43

Jo -- Many thanks for sharing these Asian shots. The -14 guy shown in #141 - 147 is really good-looking. BTW, mixed in with all of the Chinese is a rather unusual -- but good-looking -- white guy with incredibly thick myodiscs. Must be well past -20 and might be more like -25. Looks like these shots were taken somewhere in eastern Europe. Any ideas?

William 20 Jun 2012, 22:05

Does Josh on GMA wear contacts?


lentifan 16 Jun 2012, 11:32

I don't think so. The new specs seem to be mild minus. They may be readers but, if so, his distance Rx must now be a less mild minus.

I suspect lensectomies, perhaps due to cataracts, or perhaps implants.


tinyeyes 16 Jun 2012, 10:55

He's probably wearing readers over contacts in the second picture, don't you think?


JP 15 Jun 2012, 01:33

Not at all someone who'd normally get my attention, but I can't help but notice Bank of England Governor Mervyn King's strong rx. Try this for size: http://www.investmentinsider.eu/index/u/united-kingdom/mervyn-king

A very public GOC.


JP 15 Jun 2012, 01:29

You're welcome, tinyeyes. Zuckerberg certainly looks more interesting with specs. I guess he didn't expect to have his image captured this way.


tinyeyes 12 Jun 2012, 23:22

Thanks for the links. Mark Zuckerberg's RX seems slightly less strong than I had thought, but he's still quite blind! I'm surprised he's being photographed again in glasses -- is he tiring of contacts?

The Marlboro dude is definitely a fake or GOC fetishist. Besides the fact his Rx seems to increase by about -5D with each new round of videos, he also panders more to the OO demographic than any real myope would.

That said, he's still hot!

Several months (maybe a year or so) ago, there was a post about an Italian fellow, a relative young man, who was somehow well-connected politically, if I remember correctly, who wore glasses with a very significant minus prescription. Seems like there was a link, or links, to photos or videos of him. I tried to find it yesterday, to no avail. I don't remember the thread; I thought/assumed it was 'Guys in Glasses,' but that may not be the case. Can any of you direct me to that post? Thanks.

Oh, I'm sorry, that wasn't even Mark Zuckerberg in the right side photo, it was Justin Timberlake. I was so excited I didn't even realize it!

OK, well, even better then, the one photo looks like Mark is packing some pretty strong lenses. He might even be close to my other elusive celebrity favorite, Jake Gyllenhaal, who has to be over -10D.


tinyeyes 21 Apr 2012, 22:57

Ah! I love it! I knew Zuckerberg wore contacts and somehow I just knew he was a high myope. The pics are difficult to tell (left photo looks much stronger than right photo) but I'm hoping he's at least a -7. Yes!

Interestingly, the actor who portrayed him -- Jesse Eisenberg -- is also quite nearsighted! http://nikkikoala90.tumblr.com/post/3302678932

I think Zuckerberg's eyes are even worse than Jesse's, though.

Cactus Jack 18 Apr 2012, 15:02

If a person is very myopic, it is reasonable that they may need minus glasses to read at a comfortable distance. For example, if a person needs to wear -10 glasses, that would mean that anything beyond 10 cm or 4 inches would be very blurry. There is more to reading at distance of 10 cm or 4 cm than just focus. Your eyes have to converge quite a bit to fuse the images of a page at that distance. It may not be very comfortable. Even wearing -5.00 glasses to read would move the near point focus out to 20 cm or 8 inches which would make reading a lot easier.

C.


 18 Apr 2012, 09:50

Tivo - I have also always found it interesting that he only puts his glasses on to read when it's obvious that they are not reading glasses but rather myopia glasses. I bet he can't even see the camera without them.


tivosesante 18 Apr 2012, 05:15

yeah, i know what you mean, someday i'm going to try and get some translations and see what he's about cuz you never know......i speak and understand spanish, but portuguese is a total mystery to me...............interesting that he only uses his glasses when he reads, seems to avoid using them at any other time.......

The next dinner (fourteen, no less!) is an early May citizenship dinner for my ex who is exceptionally cute when he wears his -2s. How do I get talked into these extravaganzas which push my limited space and my limited culinary skill set?! Oh, and thanks, Alan, for the wonderful pictures. Keep at it!


tinyeyes 12 Apr 2012, 23:56

That's an awesome sighting, Dave! I'll be in San Francisco this weekend myself...maybe I'll see him! And thanks for the Myoptrix postings, Alan -- love them!


alan 11 Apr 2012, 15:53

sorry, that should be http://myoptrix.tumblr.com/


alan 11 Apr 2012, 15:52

I have so many great pics destined for this site - just updated http://www.tumblr.com/blog/myoptrix


Dave 11 Apr 2012, 09:38

tinyeyes -- many thanks for the great photos. Please keep on posting!! BTW, I had an amazing siting in the Castro: a mid-thirties, dark-haired handsome white guy with myodiscs nearly identical to those worn by that fellow with the Mohawk on your Tumblr site. I'd say they were at least -20, very thin (may have been high-index glass)and the bowls were about 25mm. The carriers were plus which really emphasized the power of his prescription. A rough guesstimate, I admit, but probably pretty close to what he was wearing. My only regret was that he was dining with friends and not at the bar on his own where I might have been able to chat him up.

Myopic Grant, I think he suffers from classic male pattern baldness, I know some young guys bald like him


Myopic Grant 14 Mar 2012, 20:28

Looks like a -10 to me. It's hard to tell from that small of a picture, but his face looks too young to that kind of hairline. Almost looks like he has one of those bald caps on that they use in theatre.


gwen 14 Mar 2012, 19:29

guy with thick minus lenses, nice despite the baldness, guess of his rx?

tivosesante 13 Mar 2012, 15:58

that's interesting dave, you may be right, i'm setting him up with the lion's club here for an eye exam and new script so we will know........i think he's in the low 20's, but he doesn't know himself...........


Dave 13 Mar 2012, 11:54

Tivo -- Thanks for sharing your collection! They're definitely last year's models but really interesting examples of the world of the high myope before high-index lenses. BTW, the picture of that black guy you posted a while back probably was wearing glasses with CR-39 lenses, too. They're seriously strong but the lens material and the oversize frames have exaggerated their strength. -15, perhaps?

Julian -- Nice sighting. There are a couple of major lookers in my athletic club who do the same thing. Real jocks who probably haven't even figured out that they might need correction. Probably hovering around -.75. Nothing serious but a small television set perched a good distance away from the sofa can challenge even near-perfect vision.

Carson Daly was wearing his glasses last night on his program. They were silver frames, and rather large. His script is pretty strong, but the lenses must have been high index.

Tineyeyes - that guy is great! Love the cut-in. Also, what is the Cam4 handle of the guy you posted after him on the Tumblr? He is A-need to take a breath in the middle-MAZING. Tried squinting/enlarging the page etc but can't make it out from your screenshot.

PS - for what it's worth, the other person posting as James is not me, not that it matters all that much. But since I've been posting on Eyescene since at least 2000, I'm pretty sure I was first. Just always interesting that people feel the need to appropriate others' names.


tinyeyes 12 Feb 2012, 16:48

Recently discovered this guy. He calls himself the "world's strongest librarian". He's 6'8" and extremely nearsighted -- well over -10 -- and wears glasses much more than contacts. I like, a LOT.

I've seen a new ad for McDonald's coffee on TV the past few nights, featuring a man and a woman sitting on a park bench. He's wearing glasses with black, traditional-shaped frames and an actual prescription, with a cut-in that's noticeable when the camera catches his face from a three-quarter angle. I'd guess his Rx is about -2 to -3.


Tom. W. 28 Jan 2012, 13:11

Brian,

Not good at cut and paste so cannot participate in this one.

Have you been looking at the guys with thick glasses? Some of those have Rx postings. One recent with est. of -15.

Tinyeyes,

Tried to post at your Thick Glasses site and keep getting an error message?

On Thick Glasses, recent very neat Chris Fink, would guess at least -9 or -10. The narrow frame with wide edge to hide the thickness, do you agree?

Some of your recent postings do not seem a very strong Rx but good looking guys.

thanks miranda for reminding me of those great moments when i see someone here in tampa or whereever i am that has some really signifigant specs..............i spoke about this guy john sometime ago and then lost track of him, and again he showed up the day before yesterday with his ultra large and thick welfare glasses...the power rings are so strong becuase of the deep inset of the myodoscs.........all in all he appears to be about a -26d........he's tall, brawney and very dark(black) so his power rings come off like silverdiamonds in the lucid sky......oh boy you gotta see this one to believe it......there was another one too in a dollar store about a month ago......this must be the capitol of high scripts..............as much as flicker and folkti are interesting sights, i think i'll reserve my energy for picasa web albums for now.............


Miranda 20 Dec 2011, 12:53

I had a nice sighting on my way home for Xmas. On a long flight from the US to Europe I was wearing glasses (~ -7) myself. I am a 99.5% contacts wearer so I always feel a little uncomfortable if I have to.

Anyways, the guy sitting next to me was really adorable and had facinating eyes with long lashes. We were talking for a while. When we were close to landing, he pulled some glasses out of his pocket. My heart skipped a beat, I couldn't believe it at first. They were black and huge, roundish nerd style. Not really strong though, -2 or so. This was really a nice surprise and I had to stop myself from staring at him all the time.


Dave 20 Dec 2011, 12:03

tinyeyes -- Thought you might want to post some really great batches of pictures on Tumblr that were posted this year in "Guys in Glasses": All4eyes on April 6 and lovegwg on June 3. Some choice shots that would be a pity to lose. Have a great Christmas!

yeah, thanks nate, that was really hilarious......let's not let this groupe die...the real only reason this groupe would suffer such a fate would be if we let it, unless some control freak that we have no control over is really in charge, and i don't mean god himself, cuase you know i don't really even know where this groupe comes from or who monitors it....i'm not that sabe at times and just take a lot for granted, anyway i beleive we can keep it alive, particularly if we keep our egos out of it......hugs..........tivo...........

Great Tumblr Tinyeyes - i'll be checking in regularly.

Particularly like those two CAM4 guys - only ever seen catachip live though and on that occasion he came on his glasses and then took them off to clean them. It was almost like I had scripted how the whole thing should go!

Also love the guy with the sidenote about being too nearsighted for LASIK and saving up for ICL's - where did you find him?

thankyou, tinyeyes for the link.......sorry to here about the pending closing of guys in glasses,...perhaps we are a dying breed as lasik removes our stimulus.........i'm going to enclose the link to my picasa web album in the next post and my email address......as i would like to keep in touch with anyone interested in staying in touch............tivo.........


tinyeyes 16 Dec 2011, 23:03

Partly because of the impending closure of this site, I have started my own tumblr blog to post my photos and links on. You guys are welcome to follow.

There may be some photos that came from sources here on Eyescene -- if you want me to take down an image you feel is your own, you can let me know.

There are a lot of pages with guys in glasses on Tumblr, but I didn't see any specifically about strong glasses, so that is my focus.

http://guyswiththickglasses.tumblr.com/

You can follow multiple blogs on tumblr, and they will show up on your "feed".

Look up Robert Mcdermott 101 on youtube (sorry I can't get links to work this morning). Nice looking young man with pretty strong + glasses. In his latest video, he is not wearing glasses. He says they were broken in a fight, and in a comment he says his RX is +7. Surprising that he isn't particularly concerned about not having glasses given his RX--he must be pretty uncomfortable.

thanks Guest, i did not know that the vid was of a celeb. i checked out some of the project runway skits that Santanos is in, without glasses and has a much fuller beard - he kind of looks very earthy and scruffy wouldnt even think he was the same guy [and not too sexy in my humple opinion]. but here ie really hit the spot - i really feel like i connected with him [would absolutely LOVE to meet him in person!] possibly in the vid he is much younger. born in 1974 so he is pushing 40.

talking of celebs - here is one of those gorgeous JONAS brothers whom ive recently noticed wearing glasses - and i had assumed that he had jumped on the band-wagon wearing those fake 'nerd' glasses like so many other other celebs are doing these days [yes i'm talking about you, my lovey-dovey, Justin B.].

thanks for the vid, tivosante!

he so mesmerizing! just the perfect man with the perfect glasses (that are so naturally a part of him). add those delicious lips to the scenerio - and you have the perfect man! I wish there was more vids of him......yum, yum...it would be heaven to meet or see him in the flesh.

See Krzysztof Rozycki who appears 21 seconds into the clip at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-15555352 What do you think about this guy's "look"? He's got a great face and smile, less keen on the frames, but he has the confidence to make me say they suit him.


JP 03 Nov 2011, 17:17

Thanks royboy. I like that this guy has the courage not only to be open about his sexuality, but also to wear his glasses.

I thought the same about Awalaki's glasses when I saw the media flood us with pictures of him. I paid too much attention to the glasses he wore in the pictures and had a certain guilt about it.

http://www.longwarjournal.org/threat-matrix/images/Awlaki.jpg


Tinyeyes  02 Oct 2011, 10:05

I hate when I find unsavory characters and criminals attractive. But google Anwar al-Awlaki. He wore quite a strong minus prescription in a variety of frames.


tinyeyes 30 Sep 2011, 00:27

Those are great sightings too, Dave... Even better is when the gym jock can't wear contacts and shows up one day for a workout in thick glasses... occasionally it happens!


Dave 29 Sep 2011, 15:29

Hi tinyeyes -- Yes, that sounds like a great sighting. This morning in the Mission I spotted a reasonably good-looking Middle Eastern type with -11/-12 glasses in a very trendy "geek-style" frame. The frame was ever so slightly oversized which really emphasized the power of the lenses. Flat fronts, of course, and major cut-in. When he looked at his cell phone he got closer than normal to see the screen. Clearly straight as he couldn't take his hands off his g/f.

Best yet for me are the hot, straight young guys in my club who just haven't acknowledged their myopia. There are a couple of major dolls who really need a bit of correction who can be seen most days trying not to squint too much at the tv (albeit a small one) in one of our locker room lounges. They always hold their heads back slightly and lower their lids just enough to get things into "better" focus. Somehow weak eyes doesn't comport with their jock image.


tinyeyes 29 Sep 2011, 00:53

I don't usually post sightings anymore, but at the gym today I had a good one -- tall young (late 20s maybe) Asian guy with VERY thick glasses. I think they were around -14 or -15, and didn't seem to be myodiscs. The lenses were over a quarter inch thick and polished. When I saw him he was finished with his workout, adjusting his glasses, and headed to the locker room. I went in there a few minutes later, and he was taking a shower, with no glasses anywhere in sight, which amazed me because of his strong prescription. I couldn't exactly hang around waiting for him to come out of the shower, although I really wanted to, to see how he would find and put on his glasses. I came back in a few more minutes later, and he was dressed and the coke bottles were on, of course. It was a fantastic sighting -- I don't see attractive guys with prescriptions that strong more than once or twice a year.

JP 27 Sep 2011, 14:01

I was travelling on the Tube the other day when a straight couple, both about 30, sat opposite. An unusual eye-catcher for me in that he wore a healthy plus prescription (Hard to estimate but perhaps +4.00) in a cute semi-rimless frame with those temples that get wider half way down.

I have to say he looked gorgeous, his eyes magnified, and a handsome body to go with his glasses. I wouldn't have given him so much attention if it wasn't for the glasses. Pleased to be surprised by this plussy.

as fate would have it, i ran into this guy twice before actually, three encounters all toll, so on the third i decided to stop and talk with him, turns out he's homeless and so i releived his plight a bit and asked his permission to take a few fotos..............he's blind in one eye and both lenses in his glasses are incredibly thick and myodisc in construction..he did'nt seem to know what his script was and also seemed to have no prescription on him........i would say he's around -30 d...as soon as i get home, i'll upload them onto my picasa web album and send them out...............


tivosesante 17 Sep 2011, 07:34

yes joe, thankyou, and well done, i myself am slowly putting together a picasa 3 album and found yours full of many really strong scripts and handsome guys..........incidentally while in n..y.c. yesterday i saw a guy with the strongest glasses ever, at least 3/4 in. thick.................

Tinyeyes 16 Sep 2011, 08:06

Wow, that's great, Jo. So does your partner wear contacts, or glasses full-time? What about you?


Jo 16 Sep 2011, 07:15

Yeah.. i live in Asia, and there are indeed alot of sightings. It helps that i'm versed in both English and Chinese which allows me to search for many of these asian guys. and i'm happy to share that i've finally found a partner, who is -18.


tinyeyes 15 Sep 2011, 23:25

Wow Jo.... what a collection! I've seen a lot of these pics before, but so many I've never seen! Did you live in Asia to collect so many of the Asian pics? There are a lot of dream guys in those albums.... thanks for posting it all.

I have to say, I love the photo of the optometrist's RX for -11.25/-12.25. A dream RX, and pure poetry. 8-)

Wow, I've watched his ghost show on Travel Channel before, but he's never worn his glasses, yet from looking at his archive pictures, he wears them a lot. He has a good body,..would love a picture of him wearing glasses with his shirt off! I'd say he's around a -6 or -7.

Not really glasses-related (and a little morbid, sorry), but George Tiller, the guy in that video (a "late-term" abortion provider) was actually murdered, during a church service, in May 2009.

Interestingly (again in a morbid way), he was shot at close range in the eye.


Tinyeyes 03 Sep 2011, 08:48

Thanks for the link, Tony. His lenses look thick (not very high index) and there is no ar coating, which makes the glasses look even stronger with nice reflections. Nice.

Julian 12 Aug 2011, 04:41

Royboy: you are so right about Prince William, that's a particularly good shot of him. Three comments:

(1) Seems to me he isn't as shy about appearing in public in his glasses as he used to be. Can this be Kate's influence?

(2) He isn't the only member of his generation of the Royal Family to wear glasses in public - remember his cousin Peter Phillips.

(3) Are those new glasses in that pic? They look to me like rimless or semi-rimless. As you say, sweet!


tinyeyes 12 Aug 2011, 00:59

James, totally agree -- there is something so sexy about the bald with glasses look. David King is one of my favorites -- it's the personality and voice (nerdy I guess, but masculine) along with the face and wonderful strong glasses.


Obsessed 11 Aug 2011, 13:31

I have always been into middle-aged men... :) Yum! Especially with glasses! My favorite type is latent hyperopes who suddenly realize they need glasses for distance at age 45 or so :)

But high myopes are pretty gorgeous, too! Love them!


James 11 Aug 2011, 12:05

Aaargggh....David KinG even


James 11 Aug 2011, 12:05

Tinyeyes and Obsessed: glad you like him too. I like him in the same sort of way I like that bald librarian guy on flickr, David Kind. Bald with glasses can be a hot combo!

What I also like is that he doesn't have the stereotypical shrinking violet type of personality one might ordinarily associate with a high myope. He is known to be quite defiant/abrasive/controversial when interviewing politicians.


tinyeyes 11 Aug 2011, 09:18

I love this picture of Nick. It really shows the high power of his lenses. He's probably pushed the glasses down on his nose to read something, which shows that (at least at the time of photo) he isn't in bifocals yet.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nick_Robinson-26June2007.jpg


tinyeyes 11 Aug 2011, 09:15

James, thanks for posting Nick Robinson! Regardless of his age, he's cute and the high prescription is hot. I would agree that he's in the -9 or -10 range.


Obsessed 11 Aug 2011, 08:45

Wow! Very hot! And he's definitely got quite a few diopters in his glasses! I'd say 10?


James 11 Aug 2011, 03:42

I know not everyone is into that bald, middle-aged look, but I am (if the glasses Rx is right), so here goes.

Nick Robinson is the (head, I think) political correspondent for BBC news.

Here is a selection of images:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=nick+robinson&hl=en&cr=countryUK-countryGB&safe=off&sa=G&tbs=ctr:countryUK-countryGB&prmd=ivnso&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&ei=V5JDTu7vJ8HOhAeZt8ygCQ&ved=0CEQQsAQ&biw=1920&bih=863

and here is an interview that makes repeated reference to his glasses and myopia.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/media/nick-robinson-northern-arsey-confrontational-416446.html

Can anyone guess his Rx?


royboy 10 Aug 2011, 23:54

this is the link of prince william wearing his glasses - sweet! he should wear them all the time. not a very strong script - would venture to estimate in the -2 or -3 range:

Jose Padilla is another good example. I definitely noticed him back when he was in the news (and maybe it was documented here on this message board as well.)


James 06 Aug 2011, 10:22

Tinyeyes - totally know what you mean. There is a lot of cognitive dissonance when what you find attractive diverges from your brain's logic. I remember thinking Dahmer was cute after watching a documentary about him years ago, and more recently, that José Padilla (convicted terrorist) was kinda sexy.

http://www.foxnews.com/images/338619/3_63_012208_padilla3.jpg

I guess attraction doesn't conform to rules of logic.


tinyeyes 06 Aug 2011, 09:51

I never heard of Warren Jeffs, but I have to admit I think he's kind of cute. I hate it when scary criminals are attractive (with glasses). Jeffrey Dahmer even had thick glasses. I could have been his victim because I would have been super attracted to him in glasses. Frightening...

James 05 Aug 2011, 09:05

Tinyeyes - that guy certainly is strange - his voice could narrate my nightmares!

Speaking of nightmares, Warren Jeffs (the FLDS "prophet" just found guilty for sexually assaulting his 12 year old "spiritual wife") is a myope. Who knew prophets could be nearsighted!

Lots of pictures of him on Google without glasses (contacts I'm guessing, he seems like his minus is def too high to go bare eyed) but since he has been in prison, seems to be full time in glasses:

Cute but very strange guy. The prescription in his right eye is significantly higher minus than the left (I think). http://blip.tv/ssidwashere/i-m-going-to-hell-4-1-11-day-111-5008354


sydneycider 29 Jul 2011, 08:49

royboy, how old are you now and what did your rx end up being?


royboy 29 Jul 2011, 06:54

man! +12.25 and you don't already wear bifocals? I am surprised you were not prescribed bifocals with a much lesser plus - even at a young age. by the time I was 15 and was wearing +5.50 - I was in bifocals (with no choice).


plussy 28 Jul 2011, 21:34

Sorry its impossible to induce myopia if you lived to be a hundred, i don,t know where all this rubbish comes from. Go to any true professional optician he or she will tell you all that will happen you will get severe headaches MY RX is plus 12.25 and increasing, will soon need bifocals, to correct a roving eye.

What the heck is scriptfinders??????


Chet 28 Jul 2011, 10:53

According to Scriptfinders, Chace Crawford's prescription is OD -5.75 -1.25 x095 OS -6.00 -1.50 x 180

He normally wears gas permeable toric lenses


ksnl 28 Jul 2011, 01:54

To me it seems like those were personal pictures of Chace at home that got out somehow... I don't think he would have ordinarily allowed pictures to be taken of him in glasses (except for plano glasses in Esquire magazine), he seems quite vain.

We need to find some personal pictures of Jake at home...


tinyeyes 27 Jul 2011, 22:32

Oh also, I think Chace's rimless frames are tricky to estimate from those pics. I wish they were -8, but I'm thinking they're probably closer to -5 or -6. I think rimless frames tend to exaggerate the appearance of high power. They could be higher, though. But there is no way they're only -2 or -3.


tinyeyes 27 Jul 2011, 22:13

That's pretty amazing. I'm glad that Chace allowed pics of himself in glasses to go public! I wonder if we'll be treated to more? Now if only we could get Jake Gyllenhaal to do the same! My life won't be complete until I see him in his coke bottles!


Alan 27 Jul 2011, 12:54

Well, I'm pretty good at estimating Rxs, and believe me Chase is very myopic. I'd go with -7 or -8. Those are seriously high index lenses with a lot of cut-in and they make his eyes quite a lot smaller. Uncorrected, he couldn't read small print unless it was four inches away from his face and he'd have difficulty recognising strangers if they were more than three feet away. If those rimless specs are his main pair it must be quite a struggle to find them sometimes.


ksnl 27 Jul 2011, 11:28

I thought a bit stronger than that, maybe I am looking from a different angle... but once again, I'm no expert... any other opinions?


James 27 Jul 2011, 10:03

I don't wanna dampen the party at all, and am also no expert Rx estimator, but Chace's glasses just look incredibly low minus to me. Like -1 to -2, -3 at a push.

I could just be looking at them wrong though.


ksnl 26 Jul 2011, 15:31

I really suck at estimating rx's... on the actors thread they were saying -7/-8... if you didn't see the other threads, here's more views...

eyescene 25 Jul 2011, 15:31

tinyeyes -- you're right. My geographic LA view is too homocentric! I'll need to expand it beyond West LA. HA!

Yesterday was a beautiful day in SF with 68 degree weather and perfect blue skies. An optical obsessive dream day, too, with numerous sightings of some seriously myopic guys, one in the Castro with at least -15 lenses in very small rectangular frames. Awesome power rings and serious lens thickness.

http://fuckyeahmeninglasses.tumblr.com/archive


tinyeyes 24 Jul 2011, 22:01

Dave, you're only partly right about LA. There are plenty of guys in strong glasses if you know where to look. Sure, Hollywood and the West Side may be image-obsessed, but there's also, for example, huge Asian areas like Monterey Park that are full of high myopes in glasses. (hate to bring up the stereotype but...) The great thing about cities like San Francisco is the street life and mass transit so that it's so easy to people-watch.

Also, I've seen "Strangers on a Train" -- great movie!


mint 24 Jul 2011, 18:13

layla, they look very strong, i guess about -14, nice find!

@ Layla: I think he is not more than -8 diopters, but anyway a smart guy

high myopic guy, rx?

http://www.flickr.com/photos/25874124@N00/5968392812/in/photostream


Dave 24 Jul 2011, 11:04

tivosante -- I'd love to take his picture just for myself but he's so shy and would probably think I'd lost my marbles. I don't think he's at all happy being totally dependent on his glasses and never thought they'd get to this level of strength since he only started wearing them in college. Within 5 years he was a high myope and now an extreme one. Even without glasses, though, he's so hot.

tinyeyes -- You're right about SF. LA is so beauty obsessed. While glasses are a fashion accessory down there they can never be construed as a medical necessity. You might see some very low minus prescriptions in some very cool frames on some very good-looking people, but rarely do you see something serious in the prescription department.

BTW, I just saw the last Harry Potter movie (a first for me) and was so annoyed to see those prescription-free glasses of his. You'd have thought they would have had some sort of script to make them appear real. Guess most people would never notice, but I sure did, and have always found it annoying that Hollywood wants the look of glasses but never the look of a real pair. (Read Matt Damon). The one serious exception was Alfred Hitchcock who insisted in his classic movie, Strangers on a Train, that one of the principal actresses wear real glasses even though she didn't need them and was effectively blind with them on. The real prescription was key when Hitchcock filmed her murder as it was seen through the strong prescription.


tinyeyes 23 Jul 2011, 20:37

Dave, I think SF is heaven for seeing guys with thick glasses, especially Asian since there are so many in the area. And yeah, I meant straight guys in general (regardless of race) who have a strong prescription are more likely than gays to wear their glasses in public. My only point about race is that high myopia does seem to be more prevalent among Asians and Asian-Americans.


tivosesante 23 Jul 2011, 11:39

hey dave, how's about a pic of your asian freind with his thick glasses, since he's not so concerned about thickness he may be more than willing to stand in front of a camera, particularly if you tell him that his glasses make him even more appealing............good luck...........


Dave 23 Jul 2011, 09:48

tinyeyes -- I'm in SF which has always had lots of Asians and many with serious scripts. I'm always on the lookout but agree with you that the Asian guys with the strongest glasses tend to be straight. Frankly, I think the same holds true for white guys. Nevertheless, you should see a couple of the Asian boys who live in my building!! There's also a very cute Eurasian I see downtown all of the time who has made his extremely thick glasses a part of his look. I'd say he's a -14 and wears frames that are a tad too large for his hefty prescription which means the edge thickness is nearly 1/2". Always a nice sighting!


tinyeyes 22 Jul 2011, 18:57

Dave -- ah I see. Not surprising at all that your friend is straight, but you can still look! Straight guys are much more likely to wear strong glasses. I do like Asians a lot, (I'm white) and one of the reasons is their prevalence of high myopia! From what I understand, double-digit prescriptions are very common in Taiwan and SIngapore as well as elsewhere in Asia. Fortunately a lot of them have been imported to the US!


Dave 22 Jul 2011, 16:43

tinyeyes -- My Asian pal is very cute and very straight. 6'1" and built. Oh, well. Normally I'm not into Asians but when I am ... His thick lenses really do the trick for me.


tinyeyes 22 Jul 2011, 07:07

Dave, your Asian friend sounds awesome! Does he wear contacts, or glasses full-time? I'm -9.5 and have been in flat fronts for a long time, since I was -8 which is what I've pretty much been since teen years.


Dave 22 Jul 2011, 04:55

I'd say closer to -15. I was at dinner with a hot Asian friend of mine tonight whose new glasses have finally gone flat-fronted and are -10/-10.5- after a big increase. He's got the 1.74 index lenses but they've still got some edge thickness and lots of power rings. I'd say the son of the mafia don has the highest index available in plastic and, yes, he is cute. Not that he's classically handsome but he does have a lot of appeal and is very manly.


James 22 Jul 2011, 03:59

I'm not the best at guessing - I just know strong when I see it! - but I'd say anywhere between -12 and -15.

Hot!


tinyeyes 21 Jul 2011, 17:57

A guy describes growing up to be a -12/-11D myope, and getting Visian ICL implanted contacts. Sadly, no pics of him in glasses, but there are pics of the glasses and of his little nephew wearing them. These were thick coke-bottle backup glasses (not high-index).

Wow! It has been very hard to focus since Antonio Prestieri entered my life.

Here are two unrelated videos:

In this one, there is a high myope brony (an adult man who likes My Little Pony - yes, that is an actual thing!) - starting at about 1:31

http://www.slate.com/id/2299068/

This is a video of a -10.5 guy getting his new, very thin hi-index glasses. Without being able to explain exactly why, I love the part about halfway through where the optician takes the glasses off his face, and you see his eyes go into that high myopia blankness, not even trying to focus.

JP 14 Jul 2011, 03:18

tinyeyes and tivosesante - You're welcome. I noticed that they filmed a close-up of the side of the lenses, a couple of times. Ideal for us. Do you think they like a distinctive pair of glasses? Something to add interest to a typical head shot.

James -- yes, it's a small world isn't it? I think this is especially true when we combine the gay world with the OO.

JP-- great find. Speaking of OOs, I almost suspect the videographer was one, since they made sure to include a side view of Antonio's lens thickness!


JP 13 Jul 2011, 03:17

Antonio Prestieri, in this clip, is not only good-looking but (of course) has very high myopia - loads of lens thickness to conquer his frame. See video part-way down the page, at least for UK viewers.

tinyeyes, i posted a comment this morning in regards to your question about any ideas? i'm in mexico right now and maybe the post got lost in the international shuffle or whatever.i recently submitted a story to izzy lennon, whom i had the pleasure of meeting in n.y.c. in the end of this story you may find the answer you are looking for. it came upon me during a mediataion over how to give the story a spiritual, social twist. some people may find it offensive or over moralistic, but this was not my intention, but rather to find an enlightened path for souls like us to tread upon. the story is not complete as yet, but should be as soon as i get settled down here in mexico, if you would like an early draught i would be delighted to send you one


tinyeyes 30 Jun 2011, 01:37

Not sure if it's OK to bring this up-- but has anyone tried role play type stuff when having encounters with guys with glasses, particularly with strong Rx? I'm talking about stuff like playing eye doctor, hiding their glasses for fun, or?? I'm looking for ideas.

I'm quite lost when it comes to tumblr too... I'm slowly figuring it out. I just search in google, for example, "guys wearing glasses tumblr" and it comes up with the tumblr sites. Ever since those Chace Crawford pics (on actors thread) were discovered on tumblr, I decided I need to figure out how it works. Here's 2 more....

Hmm, Julian Smith is really cute, but he seems to be using the glasses as a prop to make himself look goofy/dumb in the videos. I'm wondering if those glasses are even his. He looks great in them though, although I wish he wouldn't wear them crooked, cross his eyes on purpose and otherwise try to look terrible when he's wearing them. It's for comic effect but to an OO it's not that funny!

Here's another vid of the same guy. Starting about 38 seconds in, he switches to his old glasses and then later talks about how he can't see with this old pair and finds vision so much better with his new pair.

A pretty strong script either way--flat fronts, and note the edge of the lens sticking out beyond the frame by a significant amount on the new (black plastic) pair.

rather high script


tivosesante 25 May 2011, 19:24

i would love to share this encounter that i have to say was one of very best in a;; my years of lurking. This rather husky black boy, maybe in his early twenties, caught my eye as i drove by a bus stop. Spotting what i believed to be glasses about as Strong as gertz's aviator goggles, but not quite as large and more round, almost surely welfare glasses.

carefully making a u turn i pulled into a checkers parking lot and walked over to the bus stop just in time to get a closer look at his incredibly strong glasses, very thick on the sides

; and he was gone...........

hoping against...odds that he would be there tomorrow at the same time i returned and parked behind checkers, bought a shake and waited at an outside table, he showed up pretty much on time and i wasted no time in walking over and almost immediately struck up a conversation about how strong his script was. he responded in both a congenial and evasive manner. I'm good about glasses chatter and kept the conversation going, talking about contacts, eye surgery, hi index lenses, what ever just to get him to face me a bit. he seemed not to want to make any pronounced eye contact ...............

finally a bus came going east west instead of north south to where we were and he hurriedly grabbed it. i was left alone wondering if i scared him off, I can not forget the wonderful image of those huge dark tortoise shell frames with thick myodisc type lenses protruding both forward and behind the heavy frames. the inner ring was larger than most myodiscs suggesting a much more powerful script.....................

.

when i get a chance i will get a foto of him if he will allow me and I'll post it with his permission....................

tinyeyes 21 May 2011, 17:41

Gertz is fascinating... does anyone know the story there? Too bad the other vids are gone. I don't see how he was able to get those -29 glasses made in that huge frame -- seems like something that would be very difficult to get someone to make. It looks ridiculous to me, but some of the smaller frames in the old videos were awesome, and I would be happy to be with a guy who needed them.

I'm assuming he's GOC but does anyone know?


tivosesante 21 May 2011, 15:42

gertz is back with some frames that i don't care for, i think he has had some critical viewers, and allowed them to chase him away; anyway he's back and how's about encouraging him to make more videos......http://www.youtube.com/user/75gertz#p/u/0/pVndD0hJ_mk

Cactus Jack 12 May 2011, 12:03

Myopic Grant,

I am not 100% sure, but I think the thickness of the cornea and the underlying corneal stroma are important, in addition to the actual Rx.

In lasik, they make a corneal flap and fold it back revealing the corneal stroma. A laser is then used to ablate (vaporize) some of the tissue that makes up the stroma to reshape the stroma. The flap is then allow to return to its original position. If the stroma is not thick enough to allow successful removal of enough tissue to produce the necessary correction, other solutions must be found.

Consider the process of making a minus lens where the center thickness of the blank is ground away. The blank itself must be thick enough to allow the full Rx to be ground into the lens and retain enough center thickness to keep the lens from being very fragile. Essentially, lasik for myopia uses a laser to grind away the center of the stroma to reduce its plus power.

C.


Myopic Grant 12 May 2011, 11:18

So in regards to the ICL guy; how bad does your vision have to be in order NOT to be considered for lasik? It looks like he's around a -10, so I wonder what the cut off is. I know people who were around that range who had the procedure.


Dave 12 May 2011, 08:07

Tivo -- Like tinyeyes, I totally agree with his assessment about the ICL guy. A dreamboat! I"m sure he was around a -12 (maybe more) with super high index lenses. The e-cigarette guy is only cute because of his glasses which have to be around -8/9. How people can prattle on You Tube for minute after minute saying nothing is really tiresome.


tivosesante 12 May 2011, 04:24

tinyeyes.....the reason for quoting my mother about if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything, was to abate any chance of my being totally critcal or cynical about the entire video and how utterly insipid it was, except for the glasses of course(who's biased here?)....


tinyeyes 12 May 2011, 00:44

James & Tivo -- I like the cigarette guy too, but he's just nowhere as cute (to me) as the super handsome high myope who got ICL lenses. Thanks for finding all this!

James -- thanks for posting that ICL news report. Oh wow, that guy is so cute, especially with his glasses!! Sad that he got surgery, but at least with ICL it's reversible -- he's still a high myope, and if those contacts were surgically removed he'd be right back where he started.

Fun video and his glasses are hot, real or not!

To answer the questions from earlier--

I can't remember posting any pics with glasses that I shared here, but maybe I did. Anyway here's my latest rx, only a few weeks old actually:

OD -9.75 -0.75 x005

OS -9.75 -0 50 x025

This is for glasses, not contacts. The doctor actually also provided a .75 add (for the first time!) I asked for it, but I think he thought I was still ok without it. I'm ok in contacts for now, but getting to the point where I have to push my glasses down when reading. In recent years my distance rx has gotten about 1D worse, which surprises me going from my 30s into my 40s! My old glasses from a few years ago seem much too weak now!

I haven't had the new glasses made yet -- still deciding whether to hold off on the add. Aging is a reality!


tivoseante 05 May 2011, 20:52

All4Eyes 05 May 2011, 17:52

Tinyeyes: Yes, it's true, "opposites attract" and "birds of a feather flock together" can both be valid forces, believe it or not. For example, I am bisexual (I've said here before that I was straight, but that was when I was still coming to terms with being bi, and also I am more hetero where the OO thing is concerned, I don't know why, but maybe it has something to do with that whole "strong guy with 1 weakness" thing) and find that I'm attracted to guys and girls but for different reasons. With guys there is that ever-present allure of the mystery of the unknown, while with girls there is a comfortable sense of intimate familiarity.


Dave 05 May 2011, 13:19

Tinyeyes -- I remember that you posted some pictures of yourself in glasses on Flickr (and there were many without) and you looked great in them! What's your prescription now?


Obsessed 05 May 2011, 10:27

Hey guys! Thanks for sharing your thoughts :-) It's really fascinating to read about your feelings about strong glasses and, of course, VERY strong glasses ;-)

I have been fascinated by glasses since I was in the 6th or 7th grade. A friend of mine was prescribed glasses, and his initial RX was stronger than most kids' - I think he was -2.50 or so. For someone who hadn't worn glasses before, it was a significant RX. Most kids would start at -0.5 or -0.75. I remember being endlessly fascinated by realizing that he must have seen things blurry without his glasses and then everything would come into focus whenever he'd put them on. I asked him many questions. We used to play together, and often he would not have his glasses on because he was afraid of scratching them while playing active games. I kept asking him questions about the quality of his vision. Since he was pretty much a full-time wearer at school, he soon became quite dependent on them. It was fascinating to see him start wearing his glasses while playing with kids in the yard after school (we lived in the same neighborhood). I asked him why he was now wearing his glasses all the time and almost died when I heard the answer "I can't really see well without them".

The next thing I did was simulate myopia. My mom was a medical person, so I found her college textbooks and read about myopia and other refractive errors. I managed to trick 2 doctors into believing I had myopia, but my mother figured me out, so I didn't get lucky and didn't get glasses. I was so depressed - I wanted them so badly.

At a young age, I was only attracted to myopic people. I was fascinated by my friends glasses, but I didn't feel any sexual attraction for him as a guy. Even when we were in high school. I was always into older men. Like, significantly older - usually over 40. I actually love men over 50 and 60, as well :-) I occasionally get attracted to men who are in their late 20's or early 30's, but that's not typical.

I love myopia. I do wear glasses myself now (been wearing them for 3 years and am at -2 now). I have huge frames and my lenses are low index - that gives me a chance to have some power rings even with my mild RX.

I have recently developed a crazy fetish for presbyopia. With only one restriction: there must be a distance RX and it must be plus, as well. Seeing a man over 40 (or, preferably, even over 50) with a plus distance RX and a line at the bottom of the lenses indicating an add - it just drives me nuts. I can stalk a guy like that around a store for a long time. I don't know where it came from, but there's something endlessly hot about that for me.

When in bed, I like to imagine (while having sex) how poorly my man sees things wihtout his glasses and how he's able to focus with them on his face. I absolutely LOVE the face distortions that glasses create. They are insane sexy in my opinion :)


tinyeyes 05 May 2011, 09:26

All4Eyes -- good point about how some high myopes are OOs but most aren't. I have no idea why either. I can tell you that almost all of the high myopes I have been interested in or dated had no interest in my myopia at all. The whole thing is sort of analogous to the "opposites attract" thing: most people seem to like someone very different from themselves, even when the same sex. Dark skinned with light skinned, skinny with big, etc. -- you see it all the time. But you also see the guys who are paired up who look like twins or brothers -- both muscle bunnies with blond hair, etc. But that's less common. I fall somewhere in between. I definitely am attracted to other races and body types, but I also like commonalities -- guys close to my own age (although the older I get the less true this is!) and guys who are myopic. I think this psychological stuff we all carry is pretty complicated.

James - I totally agree with you about seeing someone in glasses for the first time, when you had seen them previously in contacts. Nothing is hotter!!! I've mentioned this frequently on this site before. Sometimes it was a guy I knew, and sometimes it was someone I just saw frequently, like at the gym. Best of all it was when someone I dated suddenly appeared in strong glasses, or when I was at their house and discovered contact cases and coke bottles in the bathroom. Extremely exciting! And I totally agree about the contrast between hot masculinity and the vulnerability of powerful minus glasses. I also agree with you in that I personally am less attracted to disability.

One more thing -- yes, I am "really" myopic. I am so self-conscious about my strong prescription that I never wear my glasses in public, even though I yearn for other guys to do so! Weird, isn't it? You'd probably think that a high myope who is an OO would want to wear glasses constantly.


James 05 May 2011, 07:51

Tivo - I know what you mean! I have lost count of the number of times I;ve stalked high myopes round supermarkets and shops. The other day I got on a subway in the wrong direction because I was so entranced by this high minus, hot young guy. Luckily, I always manage to stop myself before it gets into truly creepy or even illegal territory.

Tinyeyes - makes perfect sense. Funny thing is, I always got the impression from you (may be totally wrong, not sure where I got the idea) that you were not so super in love with being a high myope yourself, that you were ambivalent about it. This is how I definitely know you are real, since I find it hard to imagine true high myopes who are just toally ecstatic, without ANY reservation, about being highly nearsighted (knowing its pitfalls and all it means in day to day life).

So for me it's very interesting that you find it hot in others, having such an intimate understanding of what it means at a practical level. For me, as i said, I love the vulnerability, and there is also a sense of the unknown for me, as a very low, even pseudo myope.

What I DO realise (from my experience of the -19 guy) is that the myopia must not be at the level of a disability. The -19 guy, while certainly not low vision, did not seem to have good acuity, e.g. struggled to find the latch to open the door etc etc. From this, it dawned on me that I am attracted to myopes who are otherwise rugged and masculine in every other way, but have this one thing - their eyesight - where they are vulnerable. So while I want them to be utterly dependent on the glasses/contacts, they must be able to see well with them. Disability is just no turn on for me (I know it is for some people, no judgement of course!)

While I'm doing rambling stream-of-consciousness anyway, here's another thing I like (sure I've mentioned it before): while I love once off sightings of thick glasses, the absolute best is when someone I know turns up one day in super-thick lenses, and all the time I have known them until that point, I had no idea they were seeing through strong contacts. It is somehow so intimate and personal, such a revelation of personal vulnerability or weakness.


All4Eyes 05 May 2011, 02:15

Tinyeyes: Sure it makes sense! I feel the same. I think there is an intimate sense of commonality between 2 myopes, especially with the need to get close to see each other clearly. But that doesn't explain why some myopes are OO and others aren't. And for ppl with perfect vision, there is an air of mystery to the world of myopes, an intriguing "other" they know they'll never fully understand. But that doesn't explain why some non-myopes are OO and others aren't.


tinyeyes 05 May 2011, 00:32

For me, the answer is also that I like being with the guy both with and without glasses. I'm most attracted to seeing them with their thick glasses on, but I have also been extremely aroused by seeing a guy grope around for his glasses, or having that blank look in his eyes that can't focus. I have had this fetish for so long, and I still don't really know why I have it. Of course, since I am a high myope myself, it obviously has something to do with that, but I still don't understand why I find it sexy. I think part of it is the intimate feeling of being close with someone without glasses and seeing each other at close range with our nearsighted eyes, and the brotherhood feeling of waking up together blind and putting on our glasses. If we both wear contacts most of the time, it's all the better -- it's our private world where we are transformed with our thick glasses, and unembarrassed and uninhibited by them since we both need them. Does that make sense?


All4Eyes 04 May 2011, 18:39

He's only 19 so I almost feel bad about this, but awwwwww!

all of gertz's videos about thick -29 specs have been removed by his request........


tivosesante 04 May 2011, 16:09

james, i too have have had great rushes over sightings, one just recently at a local super market, almost losing all control i would lurk around this guy with what i believed to be a -18 more or less; and i would try to stand behind him where i could look thru his glasses to see what was on the other side, and sideways to catch the power rings , straight on to see the depth and width of the cut. it became a majer obsession with me the whole time i was in the store as a matter of fact i went back in again on the pretext that i had forgotten something on my shopping list, just to see him again, a very dark skinned guy, black, not bad looking....i finally got myself together and got out of there,but was quite hot for sometime....no i don't fantasize about his losing his glasses or seeing him take them off and put them back on...i do get a rush from feeling the lenses, especially thick ones....thanks for sharing about your fantasies...i could go on about other things, but don't want to take up the room here....


tivosesante 04 May 2011, 07:41

not ignoring you post james, just have to think about it awhile...meanwhile -29 is back with the wildest ever..... http://www.youtube.com/user/75gertz#p/u/3/JtrgksQX1_U


James 04 May 2011, 03:03

This fetish is so constrained to fantasy for me, I can;t even say definitively what I would do. Case in point: I recently had an, ahem, encounter with a super-high minus guy. He was -19 (born with Marfan's Syndrome), CRAZY thick glasses (not myodisc if you can believe it, but really bevelled at the edges). When it came to the crunch, i.e. fantasy intersecting with reality, I really kind of froze up and didn't know what to do. It was still a hot experience, but not because of me taking charge in any way....he ended up taking the glasses off, then later looked at a text message with one eye shut and the phone basically touching his face.

The experience made me think more deeply about this glasses obsession and what it is based on. There is certainly a vulnerability element to it - that a really masculine guy has to depend on glasses to see - but it is more than that and has elements I can't explain.

I know my fantasy would involve taking his glasses off, and then seeing his try to cope without them. The fantasy would also involve him putting them on again and having that "I can see" moment again.

But I can't say in reality whether a) I would do those things or b) they would actually be a turnon.

So basically, the most non-commital answer ever!!!! How about you guys?


tinyeyes 03 May 2011, 21:53

So I was thinking, Obsessed and James, and anyone else that cares to answer --

If you could be with this guy in the photos and do whatever you want with him (provided he was mutually consenting) would you prefer him to take his glasses off, leave them on, take them off for him... ? Just wondering.


Obsessed 03 May 2011, 17:58

But damn - he's extremely hot with a pretty extreme RX :)


Obsessed 03 May 2011, 17:57

I was wondering about the wife. I most certainly hope she's NOT dead and that she didn't make him unhappy by leaving him or anything.


James 03 May 2011, 13:41

If one were a conspiracy theorist though (which I am not), you would notice that in the more recent years, the taking off of glasses in photos stops at the same time the wife disappears (divorced? dead?) from the pictures.


Guest 03 May 2011, 13:23

He's definitely a hottie that keeps improving with age. I don't think the pictures without glasses are due to being self-conscious or his wife telling him to remove them. I think that he has had enough experiences where the glasses glared and 'ruined the picture.'


tinyeyes 03 May 2011, 08:44

I agree -- he's a cute sexy high myope, and only improving with age!

You're right about the bare-eyed photos, James. I just usually assume bare-eyed photos of super-nearsighted people are in contacts because they're so blind bare-eyed, but in this case, he seemed to pose for photos with glasses off a lot.

I think at this point, the RX is so high that he just won't do it any more. Also, he may be at the point where he looks cross-eyed or otherwise not normal without glasses. One guy I met looked perfectly normal (and extremely hot) in his -12ish glasses, but when they were off his eyes were crossing and had a very blank look.


Obsessed 03 May 2011, 08:21

I mean, what could be better than a collection of several hundred photoes with serious and smiling faces, STRONG (!!) glasses and semi-blind squinting, dressed and topless, with all parts of the body including hands and feet properly demonstrated? :)


Obsessed 03 May 2011, 08:19

Totally agree with all the statements! I think the bare-eyed pictures are actually bare-eyed and not CL. And yes - his RX seems to be stronger and he seems to be getting much hotter in general as time goes by. I think he's in the mid teens now (RX-wise, of course ;-)).


James 03 May 2011, 05:34

Another example of glasses on and then off

http://www.declium.com/threeofus/images/1999/Steve+Connie-atRodeo.jpg


James 03 May 2011, 05:31

This guy is a great find. He also seems to have "grown into" his looks and got hotter with age.

I think some of the supposed contacts photos are just him taking his glasses off though. There are lots of examples where he has them on in one photo and not in the next, and the squintiness of the eyes somewhat backs up this theory. An example:

http://www.declium.com/threeofus/images/2001/June/SC-060801.jpg

http://www.declium.com/threeofus/images/2001/June/SC3-060801.jpg

(I'm not implying he NEVER wears contacts though in the older pics)

Wonder if was self-conscious about the glasses or if the wife was telling him to take them off? Either way, he is certainly comfortable with them now, and that's a good thing, as he'd be blind without them (as he would've been then anyway!).

Definitely agree that the Rx seems to have increased over the past ten years though.


tinyeyes 02 May 2011, 23:35

Yeah, I just backed out (erased) the url until I got to the other pages of his site.

tinyeyes 02 May 2011, 00:55

Thanks, Obsessed. He's cute... I looked at the older albums and saw some photos where we wears contacts. Also in the older photos (2001 for instance) his RX seems to have been somewhat weaker. I would guess he's up to -11 or -12 now. Nice!

No need to worry James. That is from "Hangover I." Ed Helms' thick lenses were popped out for the promotional photos. In this trailer for "Hangover II" you can see that he is still nearsighted as ever.

thamks dave, i combed those videos and only found three that show him with the glasses i was hoping to find a better resolutioned foto on the net somewhere; and he mentioned getting those glasses in the mail in one of them and also that he's considered legally blind, but that doesn't neceasarily mean he cant see well with corrective lenses. some do and some don't, and yeah he's a transexual or trans gender i guess the term is....a brave guy....i have known a couple.....


Dave 08 Apr 2011, 14:50

Tivo -- I think the "guy" with the thick biconcave glasses is actually a girl transitioning to being a guy. There are other vids of her.

I just discovered this "guys with iphones" picture site.

I spent some time going through it, but it goes on and on and on so I only saw a couple of months worth of photos so far. I found surprisingly few guys with high minus RXs, but many guys with glasses in these impromptu photos. Happy hunting!

Warning -- full frontal nudity in many photos.

Wurm 06 Apr 2011, 02:54

Difficult to say for sure, but you might want to:

- run a virus scan

- change your Vonage password (using the regular Vonage site, not the one you get from Flickr)

After that you could try restarting your computer and see if the redirect is still happening.

In general, you should be wary of login pages that appear when you don't expect them.

Feel free to post again to the "Site Feedback and News" thread if you think I might be of further assistance.


All4Eyes 06 Apr 2011, 01:32

Wow that's weird. I was going thru the pics on that Flickr page, when suddenly a page from Vonage comes up instead asking for my Vonage Username and Password and when I put them in it said they were incorrect, even though I could sign in to my Vonage account with them. Now even when I just go to Flickr homepage it takes me to the Vonage page. All other sites seem OK. Sorry to be off-topic, but does anyone know what's going on here?

I cannot believe how many exciting new websites are now online for men in glasses, boys in glasses, etc. Tumblr websites are particularly good, and I see that others of you have posted links. As you probably know, in a Google search box, you can just input "tumblr" and "glasses" and "boys" OR "men"--and about a half dozen tumblr glasses websites come up. (And the tumblr websites that are NOT exclusively devoted to glasses-wearing men and boys also incidentally have photos of many cuties.) Has everyone seen the photos of "T.R. Knight's glasses wearing friend"? I think he is absolutely gorgeous--to die for! (And I usually go for the skinner types!

Matt Willis' article on Wikipedia says that he suffered from tunnel vision as a child. I wonder what his vision issues are now and why he needs glasses full time.

http://www.youtube.com/user/emboboi#p/u/0/bUw-nUPbNXc this is the same guy who came out with a couple of videos about two monthes ago and the abruptly removed them....kinky he is for sure and all the other remaining 21 videos are so smokey you might get enphizima from just watching them....i miss genuine souls like thyago who made such simple and beautiful videos and wore really super thick glasses, every video he came out with featured lenses with a notieabley higher prescription, much like jey ping, also and m139 the young semi blind computer geek all gentil sweet guys, who have contrbuted so much to the eyescene....to them i sing...........

Last post (for today at least!). The same site also has a before and after page (almost designed for OO's like me). HEre are some highlights:

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/bape/bape_dsp.asp?TYPE=BA&G=Near-Sighted&S=Glass&BAPE=100000034

(-15 Rx)

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/bape/bape_dsp.asp?TYPE=BA&G=Near-Sighted&S=Glass&BAPE=100000033

(yes, you guessed it, -16)

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/bape/bape_dsp.asp?TYPE=BA&G=Near-Sighted&S=Glass&BAPE=100000001

(not surprisingly, another -16, seems to be their niche)

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/bape/bape_dsp.asp?TYPE=BA&G=Near-Sighted&S=Glass&BAPE=100000029

(this guy's a paltry -12)


James 08 Mar 2011, 10:50

Here is yet another -16 guy on the same site (again, why are more of these -16 guys not in my life, or at least my VIEW?).

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/bape/bape_dsp.asp?TYPE=PE&G=Near-Sighted&S=Glass&BAPE=100000032

For me, easy as it is to speak as a non high-myope, this takes cosmetics to the point of ridiculousness. In the quest for thinner lenses, they have given him a frame that is RIDICULOUSLY too narrow for his face - how is that cosmetically appealing, especially when viewed front-on?

Also, at a mroe technical level, surely such tiny lenses would give acuity that is like tunnel vision at best? Wouldn't a slightly larger (not talking anything crazy and retro here) frame give a better visual result?


James 08 Mar 2011, 10:41

Here is a site advertising its credentials at making thin glasses for extreme prescriptions.

Here are my favourites:

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/featured_clients/fc_list2.asp?FC=100000015

(-16 in one eye)

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/featured_clients/fc_list2.asp?FC=100000003

(-12.5 in worse eye)

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/featured_clients/fc_list2.asp?FC=100000009

(another -16 - why do I not see more of all these -16's in the street?)

http://www.visionsofcanada.com/eyeglass_lenses/featured_clients/fc_list2.asp?FC=100000023

(-11.75)

Except for the last one, which I truly WAS surprised was a -11.75, with the others, while the opticians have achieved technical "thinness" in the glasses, it is still very clear, even to a non-OO I believe, that these are abnormally high Rx's.


tivosesante 08 Mar 2011, 07:20

it appears that he has a high script and the profile reveals a really thick lense, but modern technoligy has wiped out that exciting effect that shining light had on power rings in older lenses i guess mostly in the cr39 catagory and also even in the glass lenses although they never appeared as thick.

I love the retro frames on the upper right. Great style and just look wonderfully strong with their concentric power rings, even not being worn!


tinyeyes 06 Mar 2011, 17:21

I would say so -- at least -8. I find it very sexy. I love the "tinyeyes" effect and the deep cut-in that is only accentuated by those huge frames.


Myopic Grant 06 Mar 2011, 12:31

Notice how much larger his eyes look without the glasses. Must be a pretty high script...-9 or -10?

The glasses are definitely plus. I.e. he's using them for farsightedness. Can't tell if he's got astigmatism.

I wasn't sure where to post this. I don't know if people are familiar with Rupert Murdoch. His son has made news lately. I am trying to decypher what his glasses are used for. If he's near or farsighted or what or if that looks like astigmatism. Here are the photos:

Nice sighting this morning. I went to a gym that I don't go to normally, one that is frequented by downtown business types. Plenty of very good looking men! Including one young accountant/auditor (his T-shirt with company logo gave it away), with a great body, brown hair, scruffy 5-o'clock shadow, and wearing dark-rim glasses around -6. Very nice.... I am pretty sure he is used to wearing contacts mostly, because it was early in the morning, and he kept adjusting his glasses like he wasn't comfortable with them. Even better, then he took them off and looked very close to see a speck on them. Ahh, such a turn-on. I could have kept checking him out for a long time, but I had to go.


Chrissi 06 Feb 2011, 21:24

Hi, Cactus Jack! Sorry about missing your first post in response to my friend's situation. I mustve clicked post and then typed while your post came onthe thread.

Thanks for the advice about the rx estimations. I will probably just end up waiting for him to get the exam. Naturally, he'll tell me how it went, and then I'll probably ask him if he knows what the rx is. I'm still reluctant to wear my glasses. Part of this is because my glasses are a couple years old. I only use them around the house. I am going to get new glasses soon, hopefully. As for contacts, I'll probably wait since paying for glasses and contacts as well as an expensive school trip will be too much.

The thing about this situation with my friend is that he has never shown any signs of needing glasses at all. I have never seen him squint, and he has never mentioned it. However, I suppose that's not too out of the ordinary. He couldve just kept to himself until the right time, I suppose. I'll see him tomorrow, so maybe we'll talk more about it then. I'll be sure to post

if there is anything worthy to be posted!


Cactus Jack 06 Feb 2011, 20:52

Chrissi,

Please forgive the punctuation blunders.

C.


Cactus Jack 06 Feb 2011, 20:49

Chrissi,

You are right. Your friend would probably just see blurry blobs with your glasses. It is unlikely that he could function this long without correction with an Rx anywhere near -13.

My suggestion is that you first show him your glasses and explain that they are very strong. You normally wear contact lenses, but keep the glasses around just in case something happens to the contacts. Because you have difficulty in unfamiliar environments without contacts or glasses.

Depending on his reaction to that, you might offer to try on your glasses over your contacts so he can see what your glasses look like. Explain that with double correction, you cannot see very well at all. If, after that. he wants to try them on, alert him that even though he probably needs glasses, it is not likely that he will need glasses anywhere near this strong. What he will see is pretty close to what you see when you are wearing double correction.

His reaction to all this is a good way to judge his character and perhaps decide if he is a "keeper".

C.


Chrissi 06 Feb 2011, 20:00

Soundmanpt: we'll see how it goes. He mentioned a visit to the clinic his mother and brother go to, which is not the same place I get my contacts from. If he gets glasses though, I will certainly post about them!

Original Tony: I don't think he'd be able to see anything with my glasses on! My prescription is around -13....

He actually wanted me to wear my glasses to school tomorrow instead of contacts. I am extremely averse to this idea due to the strength of my glasses and the fact that I have not worn glasses in public for the past four years!


Cactus Jack 06 Feb 2011, 19:58

Chrissi,

I am sure you have posted it, but I cannot recall your Rx. If your friend is curious about what his Rx is before the exam, you might suggest the procedure I described on the Post Your Prescription thread in two related posts.

Post 1 at 30 Jan 2011 20:52

Post 2 at 1 Feb 2011 05:39

I suspect he is myopic, particularly if he does not have problems reading at typical distances, but he could have some astigmatism also. If he does the test, please let us know the calculated results and then the actual exam results if possible.

The reason I asked about your Rx is that if there is a big difference between what he needs and your Rx his first reaction might be that they are not much better than no glasses.

C.


Original Tony 06 Feb 2011, 19:23

Chrissi

When you next see hime take your glasses along and ask him to try them on. Be intesting to know what he sees.


Soundmanpt 06 Feb 2011, 13:55

Chrissi

I would say it is pretty certain that your guy friend will need glasses and I would say from what he described that he will be wearing them quite a bit within a short period of time. Maybe you should mention having him go with you when you go for your contacts. I assume you are meaning your yearly checkup that you have to have to get your next supply of lenses? When he goes be sure to come over to the "Post Your Prescription" thread with the details. Are you anticipating any changes in your contacts?


Chrissi 06 Feb 2011, 00:22

A good male friend of mine brought up his vision in a conversation I was havng with one of my female friends. I talked about how I need new contacts, and the girl mentioned needing new glasses. My guy friend contributed, saying that his mom asked him if he could read these words on the tv, and he couldn't even tell that they were there. His mother let him borrow her glasses (her glasses for distance, he said) and he said that he could tell that there were words onthe screen, but still couldn't read them. Personally, I was a little surprised at this news because I'd never noticed him having any vision issues. He is going to an optometrist soon, but I do not know when. I wonder if he'll have to get glasses.

I told him that if he needs them, then he should get black plastic ones! Haha

He said that he almost wants his eyes to be bad because then he'll look smarter. I don't think that he has a fetish. He probably just wants them as an accessory. oh well.

Well, anyway! I hope he gets them! I am almost a little bit excited...

tinyeyes 31 Jan 2011, 23:04

It's hard to say if there are any particular behaviors with glasses that I enjoy, but I do sometimes see guys with that "day off from contacts" look -- it's hard to say how I can tell, but sometimes I just can. Yesterday there was a guy at the gym with that look. He was wearing a ski cap with the glasses, which were around -5, and he had a lot of tattoos. Somehow the look just didn't quite jive with the nerdy glasses, but of course they looked great on him. Sometimes guys (especially with lovely higher minus prescriptions) appear to be peering through their glasses and testing how far they can see. It's obvious they don't seem to be used to wearing them, and maybe they're getting used to the distortion and the small image size of their strong RX. Meanwhile I'm enjoying their "tiny eyes"!


James 31 Jan 2011, 13:00

Saw three of my favourite glasses related "behaviours" (I suppose that's what you would call them) today, all of them at various times on the Tube (subway).

1) high myope (at least -10, very inappropriately square wire rim frames, not in a hi-index material, I'd say clearly a day off from contacts, hipstery 30's-ish guy with long hair and a cap) lifted the glasses with thumb and index finger, eyes closed, squeezing bridge of nose for prolonged period.

2) another high myope (I'd say at least a -8, quite large aviator inspired frames, not worn with any retro sensibility, he was just an older guy, probably late 40's), was reading while walking. And by reading, I mean he tilted his head at angle so as to look over the frames, holding the page literally about 2 inches from his face - this behaviour is not to be confused with pushing the glasses down one's nose to read with your head at a normal angle. That wouldn't have worked for a guy with this level of myopia, hence his convoluted head-tilting and holding of reading matter ridiculously close. Bifocals anyone?

3) Yet a third high myope (it was really a day for sightings - when it rains it pours as they say - this almost guarantees the rest of the week will be serious myope free), I'd guess also about -10, this one with sensible high index lenses in a very small wire rim frame. He repeatedly pushed the glasses closer to his eyes to read the next station (displayed in a ticker tape style). Even when not pushing them closer (they were already very close, it wasn't a case of them sliding down or anything), the temples were at an upward tilting angle, indicating this guy definitely needed a bump in his Rx.

Any of these things individually is a treat. Three on the same day is almost too many to properly digest and appreciate. There were many myopes today, some high as well, but these are the three that stayed with me.

Does anyone else have anything in particular they enjoy seeing myopes (or indeed, hyperopes) do with their glasses?

tinyeyes 26 Jan 2011, 09:03

James, I couldn't agree more! Nothing is more exciting than when the high myopia "secret" is revealed! Wearing powerful glasses full time is hot, but wearing them only "at night" "because my prescription is so strong" is much more exciting to me. Especially if I'm the lucky one getting to enjoy the intimacy of being one of the only people who gets to see the guy in his usually hidden coke-bottles.


James 26 Jan 2011, 04:43

Tinyeyes - it is! Because it's a personal and major thing about the person that you have found out.....I find it almost more tantalising when the high myopes alternate between contacts and glasses. It makes the glasses sightings that much more special. And if they are a little uncomfortable in the glasses, so much the better!


tinyeyes 26 Jan 2011, 01:12

Wonderful story, James.... how nice that you were able to verify the RX! Isn't it just like striking gold when you discover someone has been wearing strong contact lenses all along? Nice...


James 25 Jan 2011, 13:23

Great sighting at my new(ish) job today.

One of my new colleagues, who shared my office for the day, showed up in glasses today. I'd never seen him in glasses the few times we'd met before, and in fact had no inkling, that sixth sense one sometimes has, triggered by the way someone blinks or even something undefinable, that he was a contact lens wearer.

Anyway, he is a scientist and what I would categorise as sexy nerd/geek....probably early thirties, maybe even late twenties, but with steely, completely grey hair, all thick and tousled and sexy, a completely ripped but effortless body that he is probably not even aware of.

The glasses were semi-rimless, i.e. rim at the top, rimless at the bottom, where part of the edge thickness (unless I am wrong) is attributable to the frame itself, i.e. over and above the Rx itself, so the glasses looked quite substantial. I also noticed he peered at the screen, leaning in quite close. This may just be a myope trait generally, or indicative that a stronger Rx is needed. Either way - it was sexy.

Shortly before he left (he doesn't live in London and was just in the London office for the day), he went to the bathroom, and when he returned to say goodbye, was in contacts. I am sure he had his reasons, but putting in the lenses at the end of the day strikes me as odd. Perhaps a sign he has never really got comfortable in glasses, never got over that first awkward phase, at whatever age, and if this is true, I can relate and do not judge him.

Anyway, seizing this perfect opportunity for investigation, I went to the bathroom and found his disposed of contact lens packets - one eye -5, the other -6.5. That is an Rx that I would scoff at on paper (give me the high myopes please, universe!), but it is not insubstantial in the non-OO world (certainly precludes you from part time wear), and with his particular frame, looked quite impressive. In any event, it was a lovely sight to behold all day.

tinyeyes 19 Jan 2011, 01:11

Big glasses are making a comeback, most definitely, with the young/hipster crowd. I've seen a few guys with large frames and surprisingly strong prescriptions! As with everything in fashion, when the people are young enough that they don't remember something, it's new again and the cycle begins again. I thought those huge frames would never come back, but here they are! Also, boat shoes from the 80s, and coming soon, short shorts!


Jennifer 18 Jan 2011, 11:39

Was at Starbuck's yesterday. Saw a guy there wearing aviator glasses, like those worn in the 70's. He was probably in his mid 20s. I was surprised to see a younger guy wearing the silver frames. The glasses looked huge on him, but the minus prescription was not very strong. He wasn't all that cute to look at, but his glasses did catch my attention. Just wondering if these frames are making a comeback?


tinyeyes 16 Jan 2011, 12:25

No link to share here, but I had many good sightings in the last couple of days. First, a very good-looking, almost model-handsome guy, around 30, at the gym, with a great body, smooth skin, scruffy brown hair, baseball cap, and plastic-frame glasses around -6.00. At a very straight gym and he looked straight. Then, at the home improvement store, a nerdy looking skinny white guy, mid-30s maybe, kind of a younger Jeff Goldblum look, with retro plastic frames and deep cut-in, around -8.00 to -10.00. Nice!

Then, attended a gay party with a mostly Asian crowd....not a great-looking crowd, but many in glasses. There were at least half a dozen guys in glasses ranging from -6.00 to -10.00 I would guess. Including a Chinese couple who both wore strongish glasses -- one of them cleaned his glasses and then took his boyfriend's and cleaned his too.

Found an intriguing poll question on Manhunt.

"If a guy is wearing glasses in his main picture on Manhunt, are you more likely to click through and check out the rest of his profile?"

Sadly, the voting is already closed but the results bode well. And there are some very nice photos of a bespectacled hunk, Zack, accompanying the piece. Definitely NSFW but if don't mind porn, you can keep clicking through to the original site for more shots and video.

Wow! Some VERY hot pictures! Thank you!

I think his left eye is way beyond -5. I would guess -9 or -10 even.

I am a bit stumped on his Rx....in some pictures it does not look all that substantial (in the -5 range) but then in others, the left eye in particular looks high minus.

Anyone have any thoughts?


James 03 Jan 2011, 13:46

This is David Carey, the new CEO of Hearst (the media conglomerate). I like that he chooses bold unapologetic frames, and from a google search, never seems to wear contacts. There is even a slight squint/laziness detectable in some photos (this might preclude contacts?).

hi everybody and seasons greetings, i'm kind of butting in on everyone's busines, here and there, feel free to chase me away and i will run, not walk to the nearest exit.....i wanted to share this about how i met my sig. other, who happens to have a very high prescription and who i have not posted....roscoe and i met up in a park in downtown tampa about 10 years ago...i first noticed his glasses and sat down on a bench next to him and struck up a conversation....we have been together ever since.....if anyone one wants to hear the whole story i will send it to you as it is definitly inique, but also a bit long and out of place for this site......


tinyeyes 24 Dec 2010, 16:31

James -- I waste too much time on sites like adam4adam, grindr., etc.

I just ask guys if they have glasses and go from there. Chatting back and forth with that particular guy, he told me seldom wore glasses and didn't have a picture with them because they made his eyes look very small. Little did I know he was -13D! He actually took a picture and sent it to me before we met up.

specs4ever 26 Nov 2010, 15:47

I agree with tivosesente, and I feel that this chap is either from somewhere in the Ozarks, or in the general area. While you don't get a good view of him in the video, he has a much better picture for his profile now, and that is certainly a serious prescription in those myodiscs.


tivosesante 26 Nov 2010, 11:37

dear guest, try somewhere in the ozarks by the looks of the back yard and the general theme, hope i havn't offended any hillbillies, as for the video it has been posred before and i asked then and ask now what is it all about, am i missing something, i do remember seeingfor a flash a vuague, shadowy quick shot of the guy with glasses;they very wekk could have been dirty sunglasses or maybe i need glasses.....where's the beef??????.....

OMG!!! A smoking guy with a strong minus / plus RX - that's like the hottest possible combination on Earth!


tinyeyes 24 Nov 2010, 00:50

The previous post was from me -- I accidentally put "eyescene"


eyescene 24 Nov 2010, 00:25

OK, well I guess he must be an "OO" himself, or he wouldn't bother with doing the GOC videos! I agree that he sure is hot in those glasses, and here's hoping the RX is real, but you're probably right.


All4Eyes 23 Nov 2010, 23:22

Yeah, the smoking guy and his glasses are hot (and probably not his real rx, or if it is he is clearly deliberately "playing to the OOs"). He seems to be making an appeal to the smoking fetish community too I'd say, though I'm not into that myself and don't know too much about it. Not that I mind it really, but the way he smokes without holding the cigarette makes me a wee bit nervous, what if it falls out of his mouth and sets the floor on fire?!

I ALWAYS make passes at guys who wear glasses (even if they're prolly GOC and have slightly scary smoking habits), Marie 8-)


James 23 Nov 2010, 13:34

Tinyeyes - I was. This is the same guy from a couple of years ago. On his flickr page, his Rx seemed to have doubled in the space of a few months.

When someone here commented on some of the signs the glasses weren't his real prescription, a new video would be uploaded the next day "correcting" whatever the mistake had been, usually the next day. When somebody noted this, the videos were promptly deleted.

Also, he just does too many OO-bait things, things real life high myopes (unfortunately) don't do, for the Rx to be real.

That said, he and his glasses are super hot!!!!


tinyeyes 23 Nov 2010, 08:41

I thought he was suggesting that the previous "smoking" guy was doing GOC. Maybe I misunderstood.


Julian 23 Nov 2010, 05:04

tinyeyes - James did say 'NOT doing GOC'. Perhaps you're due for bifocals ::)


tinyeyes 22 Nov 2010, 22:13

James, how do we know that he's doing GOC? That's disappointing -- he looks so hot in those glasses! Thanks for the other link, too.


James 22 Nov 2010, 08:33

Think I may prefer the old ones. Or it may just be the angle of the older photo and therefore the increased cut-in visible.

Anyone wanna guess the Rx? I'm thinking double digits for sure (but tend to doubt myself on these things).

typo correction:

Obsessed 23 Oct 2010, 17:56

Well, giving us a path to a directory on your LOCAL computer definitely won't help ;)

You have to put the pictures somewhere on the web to make them visible.

One thing you can do it pay for web hosting and upload the images into your own folders.

JP 10 Oct 2010, 05:20

Thanks Rocker7 for both of those photos. If either of them is a medium prescription, I'd love that Rx for myself!

tivosesante: Those times when I see lots of high prescriptions leave me longing! But do you really think there are many goc'ers out there? I agree that a prescription so high it makes even hi index look powerful is great.... an extra intensity.


tivosesante 09 Oct 2010, 16:13

i would say -10 to -11 on the one and -8 on the other....really hard to tell with hi index lenses which i tend to despise unless the prescription is so high that it makes even hi index look powerful and i have seen a lot of those lately for some strange reason.....i suspect some of them are goc'ers

i also agree that they should certainly be afforded the opportunity to have 20/20, i'm blessed with that as a result of one of those operations and it has made it posible for me to create my own fanatsy world of guys with all sorts of thick glasses and also i happen to be blessed with several freinds with very high prescriptions who do not mind standing in front of a camera.....soon i hope to actually produce some ceative videos along simular lines with handsome hunks sporting vintage myopic eyeware....


Obsessed 29 Sep 2010, 13:22

That is so true!

I've known people who can see perfect through their -15 coke bottles and others who have problems focusing through -6 glasses.

Contacts and intraocular lenses seem to do a much better job overall. Unfortunately, even with RX as low as -6 some people already prefer contacts because they give them better vision.

Overall, my motto is: vision comes first. If someone can see clearly in their thick glasses, I love that. However, if they cannot do glasses, I will genuinely be happy for them because vision is irreplacible.


James 29 Sep 2010, 11:07

@ Obsessed - I hear what you're saying. What I meant was, I was unaware that there could be such divergent results with glasses and contacts (as the ICL is essentially an implanted contact lens) i.e. that you could be legally blind with one but 20/20 with the other. Thought differences were more slight (with contacts obviously giving better acuity at higher RX's). Live and learn, I guess.


Obsessed 29 Sep 2010, 09:39

@James:

some people cannot be corrected close to 20/20 with glasses because of their phisiology.

if the intraocular lens is the person's only chance to see well, then it must be used.

I love thick glasses myself (that's why I'm here), but I don't think anyone should ever be denied good vision without them if they make such a decision.

Finally, an ICL testimonial where we see the patient in his glasses before the procedure (he's -17):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azuxqjaXCjg&feature=related

Why they couldn't correct him at least close to 20/20 with glasses if the ICL's get him there is not explained. Or perhaps didn't fit in with the story's angle.

tivosesante 26 Sep 2010, 12:25

since people have been sharing sightings i would like to share this one which was a little over an hour ago at a flea market in florida. one which i frequent and often see at least one or two myopics per visit...this one i had spotted a couple of weeks ago and this time he was in the shade of one of the indoor sales areas where there was no glare and i was able to get up fairly close, say three feet ...i would say he is latino probably mexican, about 14 to 17 yrs. of age good looking and with coke bottle lenses tinted in lime or say coke bottle green.... at least 1/2 in. thick at the outer edges and myodisc....with black frames wide lenses very deep cut and powerful silverish power rings.....i would say he is no less than -24 d and very obviously his glasses are what you commonly find among teenagers in style as well as being high index, but being so thick and strong they come off much like -17d's in the old cr-39 ers.....definitely the best and strongest glasses i have seen in years, i hope to get to know him sometime soon and do some foto work....meanwhile i am assimulating something of an image to give eveyone an idea what it was like and i'll post in about an hour on my picassa web album which is open to the public.....


James 26 Sep 2010, 03:27

London.

A picture would have got me arrested I suspect. I was 3 inches from his face.


tinyeyes 24 Sep 2010, 20:42

Wow... that sighting sounds amazing, James! What city do you live in?

I know how you feel... I have literally had my heart pounding and felt short of breath at sightings like that, when there was a combination of high or very high prescription and attractive guy.... Too bad you couldn't get a picture!


James 24 Sep 2010, 15:26

AMAZING sighting today in the queue to get coffee. Tall (must have been at least 6"3), skinny, handsome guy with at least -14 (honestly, I am very conservative with my estimations, he could have been -17 for all I know - in any event, a CRAZY prescription)....wearing skinny pants, tight white shirt and one of those skinny ties that seem now to be in fashion. Lots of gel in his (thinning) hair, styled in a messed up "bedhead" style....so much gel in fact, it was the smell of it that made me turn around and see him looming over me.

As seems to be de rigeur among the super-myope set these days, frames were wide plastic (but narrow top to bottom) rectangular frames,wide-ish temples, a pale blue in colour. Of course, confronted with this image, it literally takes my breath away, I felt almost winded.....obviously I tried to contrive many reasons to turn around and not seem like a TOTAL creep, but pretty sure I came off creepy (oh well! it was worth it). What made it harder to take a look was that he was looking dead ahead, i.e. at me every time I turned around. He clearly has a fast metabolism, as he got two sausage rolls and two doughnuts. I almost followed him down the street, but checked this possibility as beyond the realm of acceptable.

Cut-in was otherworldly in how extreme it was....you could have seen the whole planet behind him through those lenses, power rings for days.....

Sad thing (from a reality point of view) is, from his dress and demeanour, he could definitely have been gay (a RARITY for someone wearing thick glasses....maybe it was a day off from contacts?). I just go blank in these situations, my mind is an abyss, and the only sentence I could probably construct is I LOVE YOU, which of course is wholly unacceptable in polite society.

I had a frog in my throat as I ordered my coffee.

Resolution not sufficient. Can't tell.

But the fact that one can't tell right away means that even if there is an RX in those specs, it's quite low.

London actually has a glut of high minus sightings....never thought I would say this, but there are actually too many to process. At one point I actually wondered if I was hallucinating from lack of sunlight, but no, they appear to be real.

And when I say high minus, I mean at least double digits.

I have been thinking about it, and I think the prevalence is attributable to two main things:

1) London is a magnet for skilled labour from across Europe, Asia, Africa and even North America. A lot of this skilled labour are the geeky IT types; and

2) While a stylish city, people here have far fewer pretences and/or need for artifice than, in my opinion, the US or other parts of Europe. From this it follows (my theory) that people are far less likely to wear contacts for reasons of pure vanity (i.e. if they don't present clear visual advantages, whether perceived or actual).


tinyeyes 25 Aug 2010, 23:23

James 23 Aug 2010, 06:03

I have recently relocated to the United Kingdom, and WOW, is London ever a place for MIG sightings. In my opinion, it rivals New York City, and even, and this part is almost unbeleiveable, Tokyo (where I lived for 2 years).

A case in point: yesterday I was at Sainsbury's (supermarket) in Balham, and saw a mid 30's ish guy in what were some of the strongest minus I have ever seen on a person who was not otherwise disabled in some way. Now I am a complete sceptic who tends to scoff at posters here who nonchalantly report myodisc and various other high minus sightings. But this guy had to be at least -14 (if I am being conservative) and possibly even -16. This was a handsome, hipstery looking guy (longish wavy hair), but the eyes were like pin pricks behind the lenses.

He had black plastic Armani frames, VERY narrow top to bottom and wide across the face. Had the thick arms in a way blended into the frames (i.e. not a sharp right angle) that obscured what could only be MONSTROUS edge thickness.

The strangest part: he had two kids, a boy and a girl in that indeterminate 8-12 age range - the physical resembleance removed any doubt he was their father, and NEITHER was in glasses. This was interesting to me, as even if their mother has the eyes of a fighter pilot, surely this guy's heavy dispensation for extreme myopia should have dented their genes somehow? Perhaps it is just a matter of time....

Many many other sightings of substantial myopes (and interestingly, hyperopes too) too numerous to mention.


Original Tony 21 Aug 2010, 09:37

when a guy places his glasses down and has to run his hand around the surface to locate them - sweet


VFL 18 Aug 2010, 21:14

Is there anything cuter than watching a highly myopic guy take off his glasses and rub his tired eyes at the end of the day? Maybe when he puts them back on and blinks hard a few times to try to refocus on the computer. God help me, I need to lie down with an icepack to recover.


russell 18 Aug 2010, 19:18

But oh, isn't he gorgeous!


Cactus Jack 18 Aug 2010, 12:29

Danny,

Very low if any. There is no displacement where the left side of his face is seen through the edge of the lens. Because of the camera angle there could be some correction in them and the displacement would not be obvious.

I'm never very good at estimating plus prescriptions, but this has to be in the double digits. The magnification is intense.

He seems totally accustomed to them. Too bad we can't hear what he's actually saying.


All4Eyes 10 Aug 2010, 21:37

This one's kinda funny. Methinks maybe the girlfriend has some OO tendencies, since she insisted he record an eye test and had tons of reasons why he shouldn't get the surgery.

Well I mean its their eyes, their vision, they who have to put up with heavy glasses, so if they want surgery it's their privilege; as much as we might like to see them in glasses, it's kind of selfish for us to not want them to do it. Just my 2 cents.

i could feel that way i suppose, but rather i just create my own fantasies from foto shop and feel empathetically happy for those guys who get the operation and also get good results, think how wonderful it must be for them.....i have several freinds 10, to be exact who are very myopic and all of them have willingly posed before the lense for me so that i have been able to create the albums i have and to think about, why not go for the most ideal images if we have the tools to do so.....best regards....tivo....p.s. none of them, has yet to go for the operation, due to economic reasons, but many of them use cls. junior does them almost full time, but he is running into trouble all the time needing a higher script....elijah is very stable, but can not do contacts for a long period of time....latelle is going blind in 1 eye and is going for contacts, dayrle has gotten hi index lenses and will not use contacts, would never consider an operation.....and so on.....

fracl 03 Aug 2010, 16:35

As to the lasik and other operations, next to making me very sad that someone has invented this, I must say that in Europe (at least the continental part) there seems to be no big rush for it. People know it exists, very few do it but there seems to be no hype. Out of all the people I know only 3 have undergone lasik of which one was forced as he wanted to become a ship captain at that time (he was a -3, and is very unsatisfied by his night vision, plus he wears -0,75 again permanently)

What follows should be no offense to Americans it's just some thing I remark during the plenty of traveling I undertake:

I hope that with lasik it will be like with the automatic gear shift, big success in the US and in Europe a few think they need to have it but it is seen as boring and unmasculine by most that still like to have control over their gears (or the way they can change their look with glasses and contacts).

I also tend to find most Europeans more fashion aware if it come to glasses then the US (leave NYC and SFR out of it) where I find most guys with standard wired framed black glasses, and I tend to find less of a "season" for glasses then I find in Europe where often you can see trends shift within a year or to from plastic to wire to rimless etc.

Other remark that you can comment on: I tend to see a lot of glasses wearing guys in very rural areas where opticians are far away and fashion less important. Then I also find that in big cities there are quite some guys in glasses (often the air is polluted and dusty, and the metro is windy, not nice for contacts and there is usually a sense of fashion that allows you to sand ou of the crowd, hence you can wear you designer glasses). The worst I find is your average boring suburban area or mid-sized city, contacts seem to flourish there :-(


fracl 03 Aug 2010, 16:17

This is one of my favored recent finds. The glasses are by ic! berlin , brilliant glasses manufacturer, a brand that I got to know thanks to two years with a -8 myopic boyfriend who had bought some fabulous wired ic! berlin glasses

Rather then making us sad about all these nasty people how get surgery have a look at this young fellow, it's hard to guess his prescription but the way the lenses are cut it must be over -12 if not he could have gotten normal lenses.

JP 03 Aug 2010, 12:05

In the supermarket the other day was quite a guy in his early twenties with dark rimless non-rx shades up on his hair. But in front of his eyes were fine, medium-strength plus lenses shining like crystals in their small silver wire frame. Now I don't often go for plussies, but this one caught my eye. I wondered how his vision was outside with the shades but no rx.


Soundmanpt 03 Aug 2010, 11:37

Jennifer

i like you have wondered over the past few years why health insurers don't cover more that 10%, if that much towards lasik surgery. It seems they consider it to be cosmetic which is rediculious by most standards. I can actually understand that contact lenses come under cosmetic, because they are only an option instead of wearing glasses. Lasik even though this site is dead set against it as we all want people to wear glasses as much as possible is a basic cure for many vision conditions these days for many people. It has become advanced now to the point of near perfection. I tell people all the time I do think it will happen that insurance companies will someday cover it in full. Sadly that will be bad for us guys that like looking at a beautiful lady wearing glasses full time. Currently cost is the main thing keeping many from getting the surgery done.

By the way, have you found glasses that don't slip down while your working in the ER?


Jennifer 03 Aug 2010, 10:19

Having worked in health care in America for a number of years, I've always asked myself why the vision care industry doesn't cover lasik, etc as a benefit. If these procedures are a sure correction to vision, why not make it a covered benefit. Instead most vision benefit cover an eye exam and glasses every two years. When insurance companies start offering lasik as a covered benefit, is when the insurance companies are convinced of safety, cost saving, and permance of these procedures.

For example, in California insurance is covering gastric bypass surgeries for morbid obesity. The positive outcome of the surgery has convinced health care executive of the cost saving of these patients. This surgery is very expensive and requires several days of inpatient care in a hospital.

So when is lasik going to be widely accepted by insurance and covered as a benefit?


James 03 Aug 2010, 09:52

Just for the record, I was joking about the oversight committee. I am a militant libertarian in "real" life. It is your life and your eyes to do with what you will.

What I was not joking about was that people (whether having LASIK/ICL/whatever refractive procedure) DO tend to conflate "curing" their myopia with "correcting" it.

Because these procedures remove the need for external implements (contacts/glasses), people either forget (or don't understand in the first place) that the pathology of high myopia is still present. In my experience, this is true of even otherwise intelligent and educated people.


Cactus Jack 03 Aug 2010, 09:00

The Visian Implantable Collamer Lens (ICL) discussed in the videos is replaceable and therefore changeable. Unlike the IOLs used in cataract surgery which replaces the natural crystaline lens, the Visian lens is placed between the Iris and the crystaline lens, like an internal contact lens and it can be removed. The crystaline lens is not affected and it retains its ability to provide the focusing function for close vision. I have not checked the available powers for the Visian lenses, but I suspect the reason the -22 patient required additional PRK is that the the Visian lenses do not go quite high enough in power to fully correct his vision.

Note that the patients are all older than the mid 20s. I doubt any eye surgeon would consider ICLs for any patient whose vision was not stable. Even if there were some changes, they would be small and if the -22 patient wound up needing + or - 1.00 glasses or CLs, that would be almost insignificant compared to -21.00 or -23.00 glasses. I am sure the patients are well aware that the ICLs cannot alter the risks associated with very high myopia, but the risks would be there with either glasses, contacts, or ICLs.

To my knowledge, Visian lenses are not available in plus powers which would be of interest to those wishing to be more myopic. However, the minus lenses might be ideal for those wishing to be hyperopic (Tino?) if you can find someone willing to implant them. Because they do not become permanently attached to internal tissue in the eye, they can be removed if you change your mind, but it requires surgery.

For those wishing for more oversight. Remember, the ICLs had to undergo years of testing before approval was granted in the first place. But for increased assurance, perhaps this would be a good task for the Ministry of Vision. If the MoV gave their approval, you KNOW proper procedures would be followed and all implants would be 100% successful. If, by some billions to one chance, your procedure was not successful, you could complain to the Ministry of Complaints, just down the hall from the Ministry of Silly Walks, and they could put you on the list for your formal hearing to get on the list for having the problem fixed.

Jennifer 03 Aug 2010, 07:59

Wonder why they wouldn't have the guy in RGP lenses not wear his glasses? As a commercial to sell the procedure, it makes more sense to show how thick and strong looking his glasses are. It would convince the viewer more. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on my end. I agree with the unregulated aspect of the these surgeries. Does anyone have statitics to show how many end up back in glasses after a few years? All of us have heard of the bad outcomes.


tinyeyes 03 Aug 2010, 07:03

Well said, James. I think you might be right about the lack of oversight of this industry. I'll be right there beside you on the council, LOL!


James 03 Aug 2010, 01:20

I am enjoying these ICL testimonials a lot! I found two more I enjoyed:

This guy was -15 (!!!) in his worse eye, and you can really picture him needing those coke bottles (something about big puppy eyes always signifies high myopia to me)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvUqrsHh48c

This guy you at least get to see in RGP lenses before his surgery (closest we're getting to "before" shots I think). Added bonus: you also see him getting helped blindly to the table....alas, no glasses in sight.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8jiLloWi3E&feature=related

What worries me about this industry in general, though (in addition to the obvious, i.e. that they're helping people get rid of glasses!) is that they seem to be making otherwise intelligent people think that this is CURING their myopia, rather than just CORRECTING the error in much the same way (albeit more conveniently) as glasses or contacts.

I think this explains the nonchalance of the -22 guy - he clearly believes his myopia is cured. Otherwise he would NOT be going skydiving at that Rx. Any responsible opthalmologist would tell him that, at that Rx (which he still has, just corrected), he is at ALARMING risk for retinal detachment, cracks, tears etc when doing things like skydiving, scuba diving etc.

Also, the fact that they did PRK on a -22 (where they are actually SCRAPING at your cornea, or at least part of your eye) is completely outrageous to me. The industry definitely needs more oversight. I submit myself as head of the oversight council that will grant/deny high myopes applications for refractive surgery. I will be very strict.


tinyeyes 02 Aug 2010, 20:17

Nice job faking the pic of the -22 ICL guy. It's surprising how nonchalant the guy in the video is about his surgery -- I mean, if he was -22.00, it's truly a miracle for him to get to 20/20 without glasses! It's hard to imagine him in -22.00 glasses (and can contacts even correct that high an error?) But I guess it's true.... it just seems strange that his testimonial is about the same as someone with a -5.00 talking about how they can swim without glasses now, etc.

I would have loved to see Aaron Luna in glasses as well. Of course, with his .240 career minor-league average, he should have just skipped the Lasix and become an umpire. Even sans glasses he could see better than 105% of those already in the big leagues.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRwHbnCAsck

Thanks to this new implantable contact lens procedure, even the super high myopes can rid themselves of glasses/contacts. At least it's reversible -- without the implant, his eyes are still just as myopic as ever.

I definetely agree with Yasmin, this is an amazing place to share and enjoy this unique fetish. I truly thought I was the only one who felt aroused by glasses.

I am a 29 yrs old, my rx is -7.50 in each eye, and I wear contacts a lot more often than glasses. It probably has to do with the fact that I feel self conscious of wearing them in public, mostly because of my prescription. Still I find girls who wear glasses an a big turn on.

Yasmin 22 Jul 2010, 02:26

Hi all,

what a great place to enjoy my fetish - somehow it could not be that I was the only one.

I am a 28 old woman, contacts wearer almost full time, -6/-7. I feel very unconfortable in glasses and I find it's a turn on so see a guy who is just the same.

I have to say that I am estimatig the power of lenses since I am 14?/15 y.o. I just didn't know the word "cut-in".

So I enyojed your sightings very much. So I gonna give you one of mine, some years ago.

I went home form a club with a really hendsome guy, very athletic, musculous and a great dancer. After making out a bit, he excused me to take out his contact lenses. Wow - how great was that? Than he dissapeared into bathroom, came back to the bed and while sitting next to me, he pulled out his contacts. Absolutely Amazing. He told me that he is like -7. At that time I was still -5 and so it sounded strong to me. He did not put on his glasses and so I was sure, that his vision must have been blurry. Later he dissapeared again into bathroom and I was able to make out his glasses on the writing desk. Silver rectangular metal frames with nice and stong looking leses.

A beautiful sighting yesterday afternoon. A guy 18-20 out with his family wearing silver semi-rimless - the type that's hinged at top squared corners, with rounder edges to the bottom of the lenses. The striking thing was his new and deliciously thick lenses glinting in the bright sunlight. A standard-index -5, I'd say, when so few do standard index now. I love the way new lenses appear so clean and bright.

Tinyeyes,

Blind links are just a link with no accompanying text describing the content. They are much more likely to result in requests for removal from the content owner. To cut down on aggravation among Flickr and YouTube users, as well as bloggers, I ask that links come with some basic description.

It's also a courtesy to users here, so we can decide if it's worth a click or not.

Your flickr link is fine. But I still wouldn't have any idea what's behind your YouTube link unless I clicked on it. How about "French guy with rimless" or something?

Hope this helps.

thankyou dave for your rapid response...i'm still not sure what viewers are seeing after what you said about wrekage and a then a dinner party.....did haqve a big party at thanksgiving and then xmas, but no such fotos appear on the web album that i know of.......tivo.....

Tivosante -- The pictures came through just fine. Looks like you had quite a dinner party juding from the day after "wreckage". HA!

Dave 07 Jun 2010, 09:36

Julian -- Glad you've checked. For a moment, I thought you needed a prescription enhancement!


Julian 07 Jun 2010, 08:46

OK, I've found the three pics of you now - on my screen they're Nos 57, ME 1, 'chris04_29_09.jpg'; 58, ME 2, 'dark.jpg'; and 59, ME 3, 'ME-2.jpg'. And they all look the pic of you I've seen in the past. So that's all right!


Dave 07 Jun 2010, 07:46

Tinyeyes -- You might have got a few years older but certainly you're getting better! No kidding. The first photo's the best since it isn't dark and your glasses are really hot. You should wear them more often.


tinyeyes 06 Jun 2010, 16:08

The pics are definitely all me! Maybe I've just gotten older. Two of the pictures are within the last year or so, and the dark one is from a couple of years ago.


tivosesante 06 Jun 2010, 13:57

Julian 06 Jun 2010, 10:52

Tinyeyes: I've had a good look at your new album and I have some trouble believing that the last three pics (76, 77, 78) are all of the same guy, let alone that it's you...I have seen a pic of you somewhere in the past.


tivosesante 06 Jun 2010, 09:18

i would like to know if anyone has been able to access my web album that i posted recently as i would like to use it as a media for sharing......also i've been having a hard time with borders vs. full size images in uploading to various groupes on my albums....any ideas?


tinyeyes 05 Jun 2010, 16:10

Thanks guys.... it's kind of hard to send a link, because you have to be a member. Try the link below from Tivo to get you started (hopefully.) I think you have to request to be a member of GuysGlasses14 first.

tinyeyes 05 Jun 2010, 09:18

OK, I created a new album on GuysGlasses 14 called Tinyeyes 2. There are some great photos in there of guys. The last 3 photos are ME.


tinyeyes 05 Jun 2010, 08:46

I actually already have a folder in the GuysGlasses 14 group.... you will see it if you go to the oldest ones. I will post some new photos (including one of myself). I've been meaning to do it for a long time.


tivosesante 05 Jun 2010, 00:50

a good place for posting pics.......http://groups.yahoo.com/group/guysglasses14/?yguid=344862803........ i was able to share pic in eye scene thru picasa web albums a feature that comes with free down loading of picasa 3 and then creatinga web album......picasa 3 also provides a convenient method of emailing......hope this was helpful....tivo....

I'm about -9.5 in glasses these days. I'm a little younger than David Lee King, so no readers yet, but I feel it coming. In RGP contacts I'm about -8.5.


Dave 31 May 2010, 09:40

Hey Tinyeyes -- How strong are you glasses now? I agree with you that David King is a hottie: not great-looking just so sexy.


tinyeyes 31 May 2010, 08:08

Thanks for that -- David Lee King is so sexy. He's -12.0 and he looks so good in his powerful specs. He also has readers he wears with his contacts, but of course I much prefer him in his coke bottles!

He must have been "glasses shy" when he got older, and never went out without wearing contacts. I would have loved to have seen him with glasses on before he had the surgery.

Hey Jennifer - he was convicted for marijuana possession - so not exactly white collar, but hardly a mass murderer either.

Very interesting find, Sam. I wonder how the other inmates treat him? Does he get teased or is he a tough guy that no one messes with. Did he commit a white collar crime? Or is he a bespetacled thug? Makes me wonder. I enjoy seeing glasses on those guys we wouldn't imagine usually wearing glasses.


tinyeyes 29 Mar 2010, 19:55

I do find that hot. He probably sleeps with his glasses on or under his pillow.

If he woke up without them in reach he'd be helpless.

Nice strong Rx. As an OO, I of course like to imagine others stealing and/or breaking his glasses. Sadistic? Maybe, but there are no rules for fantasy.

More to follow.

Cactus Jack 12 Mar 2010, 08:01

mattp,

You can get and idea of the approximate size of a glasses wearers field of vision by observing the appearance of the eye from the side. This is because most optical systems actually work in both directions - looking out and looking in.

If you look closely at the glasses as the young man turns his head, his eye disappears from your view point very soon after he begins to turn his head away from the camera. When you can no longer see his pupil, he cannot see objects at that angle (actually, a bit less) from his central axis of vision. He likely has very poor peripheral vision. Strong plus glasses tend to act like telescopes or telephoto lenses because of the vertex distance of the lenses from the cornea. The enlarge and focus the image on the retina, but reduce the visual field.

Minus lenses can have an opposite effect. If you look closely at a person wearing fairly strong minus glasses, you can see their eye at pretty close to 90 degrees from their central axis of vision. They, of course, minify the image and act, to some extent. as wide angle lenses.

Very high plus or minus lenses tend to provide the best visual acuity when the central axis of vision coincides with the optical center of the lens. This means that people who need lenticular plus lenses or myodisc minus lenses are pretty much forced to keep their eyes looking through the center of the lens and move their head rather than their eye to see things well that are off the optical center of the lens.

C.

P.S The two way characteristics of optical systems is why the examiner can determine your approximate Rx by looking in your eye with an opthalmoscope, retinoscope, or auto-refractor.

Dave is very cute! I'm usually not that into plus but he's an exception! The frames are very small for such a strong plus rx, aren't they?


mattp 12 Mar 2010, 05:41

Here's some strong plusses--I wonder what Dave's field of vision is like with his glasses on! Yet I suspect without them, things are pretty blurry.

Anyone following the "Jihad Jane" story today will have heard the name Lars Vilks. He's a controversial Swedish cartoonist at the centre of an alleged murder plot, but most importantly, a SERIOUS myope!

For me, he's the archetypal sexy older guy, but I could be biased by the glasses.

What do you guess his Rx is? I'm gonna say double digits for sure?

Hmm, don't know about that...

Thanks, I'm flattered ;) -6.5 and -7 to answer your questions.


Sydneycider 23 Feb 2010, 00:05

I am with tinyeyes on this one, not sure of the rx but his right eye seems stronger. Cute dude


Myopic Grant 22 Feb 2010, 08:32

When you look at him in the pictures straight on, the cut-in looks about the same. I would say he's in the -6 to -7 range...


tinyeyes 22 Feb 2010, 07:30

Is it me, or is his right eye more myopic than his left? There seems to be a lot more cut-in on the right side. LIke maybe a -7/-10. He's a really sexy guy...

Looking at the "changing faces of Brad Pitt," I thought to myself, "He started out quite myopic, then he got lasik. Now, I'm sure, he can't read a thing without reading glasses." Kind of makes you wonder if lasik is the miracle "cure."

Jonnie4eyes 12 Jan 2010, 10:59

I mainly agree with you guys. One other point: I'd have expected more cut-in and power rings for the thickness (compare with geektron's images).

Whatever the deal, though, I've rather fallen for him. (And I found him first, Tinyeyes!)

Maybe he's going through a 'Jey Ping Phase' - a high myope making the very most of it. JP seems to have moved on. Pity. But he hasn't completely disappeared:

http://www.jeyping.com/photos/16s.htm


tinyeyes 11 Jan 2010, 23:57

I agree on all counts, EXCEPT someone with a high RX like that might be wearing RGP contacts, which usually cause a more "squinty" appearance rather than the more glassy-eyed look of a soft lens. But I still think it's a fake. Cute cute guy though!


James 11 Jan 2010, 23:06

Definitely a faker/GOCer - here are the signs:

1. NOBODY who genuinely has a double digits prescriptios DOESN'T try to get the thinnest glasses possible;

2. 95% of the photos on the flickr are about the glasses, and make explicit reference to the glasses, indicating a fetishist;

3. Even high myopes don;t have their prescriptions "double" in "a few years". And in the rare instance that it did, you would surely be AWARE of this from your escalating contacts prescription....?

4. The photo where he is supposedly wearing contacts reveals that he does not have the tell-tale big, doe-eyes of double digit myopes.

Wish it was real though....


tinyeyes 11 Jan 2010, 20:50

I'm suspicious.


lentifan 11 Jan 2010, 11:30

They look real enough to me. He complains about the thickness, but some of us would give our right arms to be able to wear glasses like that. And some meddler is offering to get him thinner lenses. Away with you!


Jonnie4eyes 11 Jan 2010, 10:15

Cactus Jack 04 Jan 2010, 04:27

Guest,

The picture is not very good, but it appears that there may be a significant amount of Base Out prism involved. The inner edge is hard to discern, but it appears to be very thin compared to the outer edge of the lenses and there is a pronounced prismatic shape to the lenses. Could be in the vicinity of 15/15 BO, but you really can't tell much about the overall Rx and nothing about his orientation.

C.


Guest 04 Jan 2010, 01:30

Yes, he was fantastic, but somehow the blond guy with sixties horn-rims was even better! Maybe because his look and style suggested that he normally or at least sometimes wears contacts, which is something I like.

That bald guy is strong specs was definitely a fantastic sighting!


tinyeyes 22 Nov 2009, 21:53

Good day for glasses sightings today --

First at the gym, a hot bald/shaved bearded middle-eastern type guy with super powerful minus coke bottles (maybe -9 or 10)... it was nice watching him do situps lying down so that the thick concave edges of his lenses were visible...

Then, a hipster tattooed guy with long straight blond hair at the supermarket (with wife and child in tow) wearing big 60s retro frame black glasses. Deep cut in and power rings and also around -8 or 9d. I got the impression he was taking a weekend break from contacts. Nice....

Cactus Jack 15 Nov 2009, 14:47

Kevin & guest.

I think that most myopic men over 35 have become so used to wearing their glasses that they are simply part of their wardrobe. By then, they are probably well beyond any vanity considerations and prefer the good vision provided by the glasses. Vanity may occasionally raise it head when presbyopia gets them and they have to consider bifocals or progressives.

C.


Kevin 15 Nov 2009, 14:25

Maybe it's just a stereotype on my part but most men over 35 if they're myopic tend to wear there glasses all the time no matter how strong they are.


guest 15 Nov 2009, 05:57

Kevin

What do you mean, at his age its usually all the time no matter what the strength is? Do you mean older men tend to wear fulltime even if not very strong??

Kevin 14 Nov 2009, 15:42

I saw Ricky too. I think he is only around -2 so I think it might be a personal choice to wear glasses. Though you don't see many men his age that wear glasses for short sight only sometimes, its usally all the time no matter what the strength is.


guest 14 Nov 2009, 13:10

and good news - he's thru to next week so let's see if he's wearing them then. Anyone have any screen caps?

First bespectacled contestant I've seen on the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing is Eastenders' Ricky Groves - don't know who he plays as I'm not a fan. Have seen him in rehearsals with specs but never on the programme. When people commented he said "it's the first time I've seen what everyone looks like". New prescription I wonder?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/strictlycomedancing/couples/2009/ricky_erin.shtml


Myopic Grant 13 Nov 2009, 08:02

Yeah, I think around -6 on those glasses. He's cute even though he's definitely got the whole Jeffrey Dahmer 1980's glasses going on. I'm sure he has different frames now with that being 10 years ago. I'm surprised someone like him who would endure that kind of jarring wouldn't opt for contacts...glad he doesn't though.


Obsessed 12 Nov 2009, 17:37

I think he's around -5.5~6 D.

Check the video out at 2:58 -> the cut-ins are so hot there!

And I love how huge his frames are!

Another recent sighting...

We were on the road in Long Island going to the North Fork. Got stuck in traffic at some point. As we stood there in the jam, a car pulled over next to us. There were two people in the cae - a driver and a passenger. They were discussing something actively. The driver was a gorgeos middle-aged American with a classical goatee and an amazing arms and hands. He turned his head in our direction once and stared at me for a second, but the look in his eyes was very empty for some reason. After a minute or two a couple of cars in front of us moved a foot or two forward, so the hot driver of that car was stopped from talking by his passenger and asked to go forward, as well. Can you imagine how delighted I was when I saw that he took a pair of ridiculously strong negative glasses off his lap and put them on his face? His RX was probably in mid double digits. Definitely over -12. Amazing... I was happy like a puppy :) The guy looked at the road and squinted a few times (probably checking if the focus was right ;)). Very nice thing to see in the middle of a difficult day.


ObsessedWithSpecs 22 Aug 2009, 19:34

I had a very cool sighting today. I was taking a little walk in New York with a friend of mine. I kind of felt hungry-ish and asked my friend if we could go somewhere and have a bite to eat.

When we entered the cute little Indian restaurant on the corner of the street and ordered our meals, a man walked into the restaurant with a woman (probably his wife) and sat down at the table next to ours.

He was probably half-Latin-American, in his mid 40's. Not slim, but not terribly overweighed. Very good looking. And on the tip of his nose he had a pair of fairly strong plus glasses (Rx +5..6). They added so much to his looks! I was even slightly disappointed that they were all the way down on the tip of his nose - clearly a pair of reading glasses (quite strongish though). He was going through the menu...

My friend distracted me for a while, and I got back to looking at that man after about 10 minutes. By that time we had all gotten our meals and were enjoy eating. The man's glasses were still down on the tip of his nose. Suddenly something really noisy went by on the street.

(suprise)

The man lifted his head, looked up, realized that he was totally helpless --- and slid his glasses all the way up to the bridge of his nose in order to make out what was going on out on the street.

I was delighted completely. One of those moments when one feels there IS heaven on Earth!

Tinyeyes,

Didn't com across any of him in contacts. But I imagine his face would look "naked" in contacts - tends to be the case for people with high RX's anyway


tinyeyes 19 Aug 2009, 21:00

The Nokia guy is great. I like all his frames! With that cut-in and those tiny blue eyes, I would say he's right around -10 or maybe -11. Very sexy RX....

Are there any photos of him with contacts?

Cactus Jack 08 Aug 2009, 11:00

Tinyeyes,

I don't normally pay much attention to this thread, but I think you are correct in asking if this is an "enhanced picture". The cut in does not appear to me to be optically correct. You can see the temples in the cut in, his hair line and the colored back drop, but no obvious ears for the temples to be resting on. If you enlarge the image there still are no ears. He may be myopic, but not as myopic as it appears.

C.

ilovepretzels 03 Aug 2009, 10:44

In the US Big Brother, one of the contestants, Jeff wears glasses occassionally. My heart fluttered a little during a competition and he said, "I think I just lost a contact." And sure enough, later on that night, he was talking in the Diary Room wearing glasses. An already GORGEOUS man, but the glasses take him over the top.

-14 is about what I was thinking. The glasses are pretty large for such a strong RX -- I bet they're quite thick. I really have a bad case of glasses fetish, because to most people this guy is a mega-nerd (even without the glasses) -- but I find him attractive.


James 07 Jul 2009, 07:02

His left eye in particular is SUPERMYOPIC. You could see the whole world through that cut-in, if he wasn;t standing against a wall.

I'd say in the region of -14?

I would have to guess that Mr. Helms's glasses are more in the range of -6 to -8, just because mine are -7.5, and I have noticed about the same minification looking straight on, that is -- the amount of inset of one's face/head as it is reduced through the outer edge of the lens. At any rate, nice to see a star unabashedly wearing some powerful glasses.


tinyeyes 19 Jun 2009, 23:03

James-- thanks, those are great photos of Ed Helms that I hadn't seen! He is indeed a hottie in his glasses. Amazing cut-in on some of those photos! He must hate wearing contacts, because he is seen in glasses quite a lot. I think he wears hard contacts, by the way. I agree that the RX is very close to -9 or -10. Yummy! It's especially amazing to see a famous actor wearing glasses so powerful in public. Now if only Jake Gyllenhaal would wear his!

Tinyeyes - wow! We must have very similar tastes, you have snowballed a total Ed Helms fixation for the past few days. I even look at him differently now in The Office (where his character never wears glasses) and it now seems OBVIOUS he's in some seriously strong contacts.

What do you think his Rx is? I'd venture -9 or even -10, but I;m quite bad at estimating.

Anyway, here are my favourite pics:

The other day I logged on to bukbuddies for the first time in ages, to find that the latest feature was a remake of 'The Band' featuring Dylan and Judd, both of them in glasses in quite a lot of the shots. The pics are mixture of new ones and 2003 shots, but they weren't available before - without paying to join, that is. These are the first 'new' shots of Dylan in glasses for five years, though he was squinting in some more recent ones, so I guess he hasn't gone for contacts, let alone lasik. It's no longer the 'front page' feature, but you can find it at http://www.bukbuddies.com/bukbuddies/dylan/catalog7/catalog.html

There are two best glasses moments in the video:

1. when he takes off the glasses and blinks confusedly at the audience

2. much later in the video, after they show the clip of the reality show that JT is producing, Jimmy says "you're going to get sued for that show. You'll have to sell those glasses" and JT looks amused but embarassed...

I have just one thing to say to all you adorable men who need glasses... Stop looking so darned cute because you are distracting me from things I really need to get done.

That is all.


Julian 05 May 2009, 00:46

Let's hope not. This quote suggests not:

When the famous singer Justin Timberlake appeared with glasses on his nose last week, everyone thought that it was just a part of his new image. However, the singer admitted that unfortunately, a new fashion accessory is not in question, and that he needs the glasses for his poor eyesight.

Whilst on the late night show ďJimmy Kimmel Live!Ē, Justin said to Jimmy ďThatís just ridiculous... I can see you, but I canít see any of youĒ (audience).

Timberlake is short sighted, and does not have a problem with having to wear glasses.

ďIíve embraced it (bad eyesight). Obviously Iíve made a commitment with these glasses. Iím goodĒ says Justin.

On further reflection, I am thinking the recent glasses wearing may point to upcoming LASIK......?


James 05 May 2009, 00:28

I have never actually seen Justin Timberlake in glasses, so these recent photos were surprising. I had kind of decided he was one of those celebs who would NEVER wear their glasses in public.

While the Rx seems disappointing, and he does NOTHING for me sans specs, the glasses do get him a second (ok, and third) look from me.

Any guesses on the (mild) Rx?

I've just checked out Bukbuddies for the first time in ages, and there's a new model called Max at http://www.bukbuddies.com/bukbuddies/max/max.html In a few shots he's wearing glasses - oblong, white wire frames, look like low minus - and in a few more they're dangling from his vest. That's quite something for Bukbuddies these days; a few years ago it seemed as if any guy who had glasses would wear them for a few shots: Dylan, Darrel, Derrek, Daniel, and of course Jude and Simeon who were never without them.

All4Eyes 21 Apr 2009, 09:23

Tinyeyes, you did catch the only episode of American Idol where Darling Danny wasn't bespectacled. When I saw it I thought how much more fun that would have been back in pre-contacts days when you'd know he was bare-eyed and blurry, instead of wondering and thinking he's probably in CL's. But I think maybe he just enjoys being bare-eyed sometimes, because in some of the off-stage things I've noticed he will be wearing glasses at one moment, off the next and back again. I do strongly suspect he is One Of Us and I've considered sending him a bit of fanmail to inform him of our whereabouts, but I'm not sure, I understand some people are a little freaked out by us, at least at first 8-/. Anyway, I'd say -5 is a pretty accurate-sounding rx guess, I don't think -4 or less, I'm -4 and they do look a bit stronger than my glasses.

I think I probably saw the one time he didn't wear glasses on American Idol, but I now realize he wears them a LOT. I don't know if he's got a fetish, but he definitely likes them as a fashion statement! I thought his RX was like -5, but now it seems more like -4 or less. I read one article that said his vision is 20/200.


James 17 Apr 2009, 00:43

Tinyeyes,

On the contrary, Danny Gokey is a total OO glasses fetishist who seems to favour glasses over contacts. Granted we're a bit behind here, but so far, he has worn a different pair of glasses in every episode, and NONE of them are rimless, blend into your face glasses, they're loud and proud.

I even read an interview in which he rhapsodises on how much he LOVES glasses.

What do you think his Rx is?


tinyeyes 14 Apr 2009, 21:05

I haven't been watching American Idol this season, but hey! Check out Danny Gokey -- usually in contacts, but also sometimes in glasses (at least offstage)!

Just do an image search on google for him to see glasses pics. Maybe -5ish?


Clare 14 Apr 2009, 14:05

We watched Gok's Fashion Fix tonight on Channel 4 and thought his over large glasses were a little overdone. Shame because his slightly less large frames in the previous series were rather stylish. Not sure I get this retro/big thing.

By the way, I think we've posted about the Big Brother guy before on here, but it's been a long time. I'm seeing some other repeat postings too. I hope no one minds the duplicate postings. It's nice to see some of these guys again, and for newer people here, maybe for the first time.

Also, when I post Youtube links, there are often related videos that come up that would also interest you, but I don't always post everything I see.


tinyeyes 08 Apr 2009, 12:43

Yes, he's VERY cute without glasses, and absolutely amazing with them! I didn't see Big Brother 5 but I would certainly like to, to get more glimpses of this hottie!!

matt P, I saw Michael Jordan's son on Yahoo. I also read some of the comments posted about his picture. Some comments included, "With the money his father has, you'd think he'd be able to afford contact lenses." Another person questioned why he didn't have lasik done on his eyes. I was surprised by the hostility towards his glasses and the goggles he wears while playing basketball.

tinyeyes 07 Apr 2009, 19:52

The surfer guy is so amazing. I am cursing the day he had his surgery! If I had met him, I would never have guessed he was wearing such strong contact lenses. I wonder what his glasses looked like?


mattp 07 Apr 2009, 12:08

Carter--Where/what is chicken island?

On another note, watch the news for Marcus Jordan, Michael Jordan's son. He wears glasses all the time--even playing basketball--he seems to have a significant but not huge amount of nearsightedness. His choice of Central Florida for a college is a news item on yahoo, and video clips of him are all over youtube.

One of the times that the Folger's commercial was aired was a couple of weeks ago on HGTV during Design on a Dimes Top 35 tips episode. In that episode, Spencer, one of the designers, who's a myope, mentions that he got the job because they liked his glasses.


tinyeyes 28 Mar 2009, 06:11

I had never seen it on TV, but it was sent to me by a friend.

marsh 21 Mar 2009, 15:03

hey, TINY EYES how about joining this conversation, ciao


marsh 21 Mar 2009, 14:48

Hi VFL, interesting, I have the same problem. I never told countless others what the few told me. Who knows what the future would have held in store? I think they were all good people and no mistakes. VFL, you still did not give me your RX and age? I'll give you one more story- (I was invited to the home of someone i was doing business with in pa. when i got to his house his w was a -15 and a good cook,(I was -11 then) I of course said nothing about our coke bottles and had a good prime rib dinner. Years later, he told me he got divorced and remarried an old gf from wva. Several month after, he knew i was in ohio temporarily and after going away for weekend, i found a note that his ex was at friend for weekend in ncanton and looked me up to call her there. I got back tuesday, called her friend and she said, "where was i, __ came all the way here just to see me. I never called back, embarrased.) Later,VFL, come back with those answers! have you been to lenschat? ciao


VFL 21 Mar 2009, 06:43

So it seems that all of these women had very substantial prescriptions of their own. Interesting.

I'm not a shrink. I've spent years trying to figure out why I love men in glasses so, though. Maybe that counts?

It is not only the glasses that attracts me. The man has to be attractive to me anyway. But the glasses have to be there to complete the attraction. So I would say that what is going on wit;h me is a fetish, though not in the purest sense of the word. That said, I have been very vulnerable emotionally because of this. There are several times in my life when the man behind the glasses was not worthy of the affection I bestowed upon him. I got it all mixed up in my mind because the attraction to the glasses was so strong. This derailed my younger, single life in more ways than one.

I never came right out and told a man that his glasses turned me on. One did say that he thought that they did. I didn't answer. Wonder what would have happened if I had. I'm afraid it may have diffused the magic.

That's all for now.


marsh 20 Mar 2009, 14:49

VFL, you're something else. I felt all you said, it was long ago. one(a-13) stated the thick glasses attracted her, she didnt know why, but then she liked what was behind them, I believed her, another (-7)after pushing on sofa said she was attracted to the glasses - but didnt want me wearing them inside, she didnt either in her house?? There are more but not now. I was suprised, embarrased and relieved because i was self conscious too. The relationships did not last, -7 was too princess and spender$ (she married rich canadian)and -13 went back to school, with her kids, to be a psych. Yes its different? Yes it was "tingling" not to be worried about whether or not date liked the coke bottles (I hated c. lenses) I was self consious as youger person, now i dont care. Are you a psych? or similar or what? Whats your RX? tell me about your situations - in detail ciao marsh


VFL 20 Mar 2009, 14:08

Really, Marsh? Tell me what those girlfriends said to you when they admitted that they liked your glasses? How did that make you feel? Did you believe them? Were you surprised? Embarrassed? A bit shy? Were you more aware of your glasses after they "declared" themselves? If so, in what way?

I wear glasses myself...contacts more often so I "know" what it is like to need correction. There's nothing very romantic to it in reality, but the idea of it in a partner is something quite different. Wonder why that is.


marsh 20 Mar 2009, 09:47

b4 I saw this site, it was unusual for anyone to admit this but a few gf's did, I subconsciously felt everyone was looking at me, in younger days, at -11 with coke bottles. I am now at 60, cataract implants for the -11, with -4 left over in glasses, with the new interest and openness, I'd wear the -15's !!


VFL 20 Mar 2009, 08:00

Yes, it is the "almost never takes them off" part that is so endearing. Even when they come off for just a moment or two, it can be such an emotionally charged moment. Once a man I was absolutely crazy about was sitting next to me, in the middle of a conversation he took them off to polish them and looked me in the eye (how much he could see was debatable because of the thickness of those lenses) in such an intense way that I nearly had a heart attack. I will go to my grave believing that he knew exactly what he was doing to me. If he had taken off his clothes it wouldn't have sent more of a message in my mind. A few moments later, he turned back to the task at hand and in the act of replacing the glasses, the spell was broken and normalcy returned. It has been years and I still remember.


Kevin 20 Mar 2009, 02:03

Does anyone know if there's a gay dating site for guys in glasses?


tinyeyes 19 Mar 2009, 21:17

I dated one guy who was about a -9, and when he slept together, he would put on his glasses if we woke up at night, even in the darkness. I guess he could see a little in the darkness and he wanted to be able to see it clearly. He also put on glasses to use the bathroom etc. during the night, even if not turning on the light.

On another subject, I had a good sighting today at the gym -- haven't had that many lately! Very tall white guy, late 30s or early 40s, light complexion with brown wavy hair, and (of course) extremely strong minus lenses. The frames were metal and were very small to keep the lens thickness down, but they were still thick with deep cut-in. I think he was around -12 or so. I see that even though larger frames are in vogue these days, the really high myopes are still wearing small styles, out of necessity. I find that very sexy of course. Tiny glasses work very well for tiny eyes!


eustace 19 Mar 2009, 20:19

VFL: I'm with you! I particularly responded to your "almost never takes them off." I have fantasies about guys who almost never take them off--even to shave, shower, swim, make love, or have sex. Nothing is more exciting that the guy who does not take his glasses off until he is in bed and has turned out the lights, who puts them on if he must go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and who gropes for them first thing in the morning before he gets out of bed. The thicker the better. And bifocals, trifocals, and prisms are even more of a turn-on. I love that image of helplessness. I even have some fantasies about guys who are so insecure without their glasses that they sleep with them on!


Doreen 19 Mar 2009, 00:34

VFL: I absolutebly agree with you!!


jo 18 Mar 2009, 19:32

hi.. it's so rare i see someone from singapore... i'm from singapore too, practise GOC and gay... any chance of chatting more? email me at iwannabemyopic@gmail.com:)


Eric 18 Mar 2009, 02:59

Kevin, I would say nearly all men in Singapore are nearsighted. Many are wearing contacts, but still the vast majority in glasses. Even with those middle-aged and older, rarely to do you see a pair of regular reading glasses---most are nearsighted with an add for close-up work.


VFL 17 Mar 2009, 13:50

Without fail, a handsome man who wears glasses and tickles my fancy, can drive me absolutely crazy by removing those glasses to either polish them or rub his eyes. Extra points if he almost never takes the darned things off. There is a strange intimacy in that act.

Am I the only one to feel that way?


Kevin 17 Mar 2009, 11:27

Eric that story is amazing. Is it like that everywhere in Singapore?

By over here I mean America, have you noticed more young children are wearing glasses. Where I work when I notice a kid with glasses, there is normally a myopic parent if not both and strong RX.


Cactus Jack 17 Mar 2009, 06:51

Kevin,

I'm not sure where "over here" is, but I have seen evidence of connecting glasses with intelligence or education occuring in the US.

Some years ago, I noticed a small group of 3 or 4 teen males in a local supermarket, all wearing glasses. At one point, I got close enough to overhear their conversation and notice that none of the glasses had any prescription, in fact the lenses still had the tiny designer logos that you find on glasses on display in optical shops. Their conversation was in English and it was obviously their mother language, but it was also obvious they hadn't paid much attention to proper usage in class.

Apparently, these young dim bulbs felt that wearing the non-Rx glasses would make them appear smarter, improve their grades (?), or perhaps make them appear more attractive to potential mates. There is an old saying that if the girls were attracted to boys that walked around on their hands, many hands would have calluses.

I later wondered, but not for long, how they got their glasses.

C.


Eric 17 Mar 2009, 05:31

I am an accountant in Singapore. We used to have only one guy in our office who did not wear glasses for nearsightedness. After working here about a year, one day he comes in wearing glasses---strength looked very weak, but I think he did not want to be out-of-sync. Now he wears glasses all the time.


Kevin 17 Mar 2009, 03:06

Do you think that trend will follow over here? My dad is -5, now I'm a -8, I have 3 brothers and they're all myopic, although I have the strongest glasses.


Cactus Jack 16 Mar 2009, 19:22

Kevin,

Unless there is a genetic technique developed to cure myopia, I suspect that it will only take a few more generations for almost all to be myopic. There will likely be a very few who aren't, but most will be. That population is very prone to myopia and the ones who study, become prosperous, and have children, who study, become more prosperous, etc. will likely overwhelm the rest. People in Singapore are pretty intelligent to start with and I suspect that high myopia is associated with scholarship in the society. Those few who aren't myopic will probably try to induce myopia, do GOC, or have some form of surgical "correction" so they will not appear less scholarly than the rest of the population because of group pressure.

C.


Kevin 16 Mar 2009, 18:20

I just read that 90% of students in Singapore are myopic, now I'm just wondering how long do you think it will be until the entire population are myopic. My guess is around 2080, what does everyone else think.

Clearly he's old and fat now, but with that Rx, am guessing he was in glasses before primary school.

He must love them because he couldn't have needed them. It was great! (I could tell they weren't thin lenses too).

eye doc 06 Feb 2009, 03:19

guest 555 - it is not the retinal detachment that causes high myopia, but the other way around.

your prescription after a detachment is usually the same, it is just the visual acuity that may have worsened, depending how quickly it was repaired.

also, it's not only the extreme myopes at risk - anyone over -5/-6 (which i suppose non-OO's WOULD consider very high) is potentially at risk, because their retinas are stretched very thin.

Here's a good article on the main ways to repair retinal detachments:

WOW, that's all I can say about that German guy! his lovely chubby looks are so enhanced by those coke-bottles! I guess that retinal dettachment caused his severe myopia; all the people I've met so far reportimg such condition bare high minus rx's... as a high myope, I've always been told to watch out any time I start seeing clouds floating since it's a signal for this and you've got to be rush to the hospital to be treated... does anybody here know how it's treated?

James 03 Feb 2009, 03:37

The heavy Rx at least explains why he wears frames that are clearly too small for his face.

I read an interview with him in which he said he had retinal detachments in BOTH eyes at the age of 20 - this also maybe explains why he doesn't wear contacts, even though it would probably have helped his political career.

5. Even though I know better, the fact that I could swear 90% of the photos of him are taken by OO's trying to highlight cut-in, edge thickness and general awesomeness of Rx


James 02 Feb 2009, 03:52

OK, so I've now posted my favourite photos to the LOTS OF LINKS thread. There are lots - I just couldn't narrow them down further.

Here are some of the things I love about him:

1. The temples of his newer glasses don't really fit properly over his ears - this is weird (and also titilating) as he clearly wears them ALL day EVERY day and yet somehow this issue never came up

2. The glasses also aren't wide enough for his (lovely) face - this is highlighted in all the frontal photos.

3. He just keeps his eyes closed even when the TV make-up person takes a break from applying his make-up, realising there is little point in opening them while not wearing his coke-bottles.

4. The way his face gets fatter during the course of his campaign, especially in the chin area (glasses + chubby face/jowls = HOT!)


James 02 Feb 2009, 02:26

So I've been scouring the internet for the last few days poring over every photo of Thorsten Schaefer-Guembel ever taken. There's a lot of stuff on www.zimbio.com and www.daylife.com (I may post my favourites later).

Late last year he also changed frames, and by the looks of it, even had a bump in already hefty prescription.

This photo is particularly interesting - it's obviously a campaign photo that's been heavily airbrushed to make the glasses look less strong. This airbrushing is clearly highlighted with him standing in front of it.

Any guesses on his Rx?


VFL 30 Jan 2009, 14:15

Aw, Mits, see?

Give the girl what she wants. Take her along to help pick out the frames. Make it a date!


Mits 30 Jan 2009, 12:47

I am 42 and finding I need to lift my glasses up to read up close. Looks like it may be time for bifocals. That may be why I'm not doing well with my contacts.

By the way, VFL, I asked my wife if she ever thought my wearing glasses was at all sexy, and she definitely answered in the affirmative. Who knew?

I think you've made me decide to ditch the contacts and go to the optometrist for a prescription for bifocals and get new glasses.


Dieter 29 Jan 2009, 18:49

jojo,

This conversation hijacked this thread, but . . . . .

Like everything, there will be at least two sides to every story. The OOs will love your glasses but there will be many others with a different opinion. Suffice it to say, that you can't please everyone. Still, isn't it nice to know that in the eyes of some, you have something very special.


jojo 29 Jan 2009, 16:50

thats really cool, i do have a lovely husband who looks sexy in his glasses although he prefers contacts, he would also prefer me to wear contacts so its nice to know not everyone feels that way. he has had people say horrible things about his glasses in the past which i think has made him feel really self conscious and put him off the whole glasses thing


Dieter 29 Jan 2009, 12:42

jojo,

To add to your excitement, optical obsessives will find you the most desirable. When wearing glasses you will "transgress to a higher plane".


VFL 29 Jan 2009, 10:30

That's great. Now we are all made up and can be friends again.

Let's clean our glasses and start anew.


jojo 29 Jan 2009, 08:00

sorry guys i didnt mean to offend at all course im not anti gay! i was just so excited when i found this site to think there are guys who would actually find me attractive when im not wearing contacts!


VFL 29 Jan 2009, 07:45

You all are very dear to me. I don't know how my life could have ended up any happier than it is, though.

There is nothing more charming than the sight of a handsome man wearing a well-chosen pair of eyeglasses. Absolutely nothing. Just the thought makes my pulse race and my knees grow weak.

Nearsighted, farsighted, astigmatic, presbyopic or a combo of the above. It doesn't really matter. One younger guy with blended bifocals nearly had me drowning in my coffee cup a few years ago. I've never seen them before or since. He was a cute 30 something attorney with big brown eyes. Nearsighted. Most all of my nearsighted guys have had brown eyes. Has anyone else ever noticed that?

But I do prefer that the man need to wear the glasses full time.


Charles 29 Jan 2009, 06:43

VFL

The thought of what might have become of you is quite an exciting one.

How I wish in my younger days, when my myopia was increasing steadily, I had realized that some people might have found my glasses attractive.

Cut-in UK 28 Jan 2009, 14:18

It is very reassuring, but not entirely surprising, to find passionate women (VFL, Katy and Jennifer) moved by thought and the appearance of males in glasses. VFL we know well as a transparently passionate person. She writes as she speaks, and she is driven by feelings. Music, poetry (and myopic women) do it for me. They are triggers to the extreme emotions which many, but not all, possess. With passions, come mood swings, and cycles of elation and depression. It make life, and the persons involved, all the more interesting. I imagine that the poetry of Wordsworth or the music of Beethoven would not exist if they were not people of passion. Be bold and true to yourselves ladies, and continue to enrich the lives of those around you!


ehpc 28 Jan 2009, 13:25

Do you girlies have the same general prefence for minus MIG that many men (definitely myself:)) have for minus GWGs? I never know how much minus I am. About minus 6 or 7 I think..........................

Pete


Mits 28 Jan 2009, 11:37

In case you all were wondering, I can make it to and from the bathroom in the middle of the night without my glasses, but I do take them with me so I can see to shave after my shower. And for some reason, I can see the clock onthe nightstand OK without them -- but if I get more than 16 inches away, I cannot.

I have contacts, but I think I actually see better with my glasses on.


Jennifer 28 Jan 2009, 10:45

Definately Katy! The prescription at the end of Mits post did get my blood pumping! I think he did that on purpose (knowing what it would do to us!)


highminusdude 28 Jan 2009, 10:03

Guest 555 -- What bar and where?!?!


Katy 28 Jan 2009, 09:26

For me, Mits has just demonstrated what VFL was talking about, that glasses can change our perception of a man (which isn't always good). Before, I thought Mits sounded narrow minded and judgemental. Now he has put his prescription on the end of his post I think 'Ooh, he sounds nice!'. Hmmm.


Phil 28 Jan 2009, 09:06

Restraint is the difficult bit. But you are right Jennifer: a non-OO is easily spooked. As you say, every OO needs another! I wish I'd married one. If I had known what I know now I wouldn't have settled for any less. But when I was younger I just thought I was a bit "odd" being attracted by glasses! I've never mentioned it to my wife: she'd call me all sorts of names if she knew.


Jennifer 28 Jan 2009, 08:59

Mits, I think most of us have learned a great deal of restraint when it comes to our attraction to a man in glasses. The last thing we want to do is scare the guy away because he thinks we are more interested in his glasses. To this day, I am very guarded about the strong attraction. I have strong thoughts about the guy, but am very careful to never come across inappropriate. Although, I have to stop myself from starring at a handsome guy with glasses, many times. Maybe this is the forum where we can express our true feelings about that good looking guy with glasses who crosses our path. I do often wonder what it would be like if two OO's ended up together? Wild sex! Wow


Mits 28 Jan 2009, 07:48

VFL,

I didn't intend to be mean to you. I do appreciate your affinity for men in glasses. It just sounded like you were in bed with ALOT of men in glasses. But then you explained that it largely fantasy. That's fine! We all fantasize, don't we?

Mits

Phil 28 Jan 2009, 03:22

Katy, I do, I do! I'm much more of a mig now. I don't wear at work but I wear throughout holidays and weekends, and going to and from work. It's a necessity! At -4 I am at last finding it difficult to function bare-eyed! I couldn't follow TV programmes, I was smiling at all the wrong people (which was going to get me into real trouble one day) and I couldn't find anything in shops.


Richard 28 Jan 2009, 02:33

VFL

You might have lived even more happily ever after?


Katy 28 Jan 2009, 02:24

Jennifer - he sounds gorgeous!

Phil - I think you have to actually wear your glasses to qualify as a mig - there is an 'in' in there... ;-)


VFL 28 Jan 2009, 00:34

Dearest Charles, I only wonder when I were a single girl years ago what would have happened to me if the internet had been so popular.


Phil 27 Jan 2009, 10:07

Jennifer, Katy and VFL, it's a great thing for us migs that there are girls around like you. Especially when you are gwgs yourselves.

I wonder how many mig/gwg couples there are where both are OOs? I observe quite a lot of couples where both partners wear specs. But what I read here indicate that in many partnerships one is a reluctant gwg/mig non-OO and at best tolerates the optical interests of the other.

Is there any OO here who has an OO partner?


Charles 27 Jan 2009, 09:38

VFL

As far as I know, I am one of the most myopic men to come here. If only I could have met you years ago!


Jennifer 27 Jan 2009, 09:26

Katy and VFL, it's comforting to find there are other girls out there similar to me. Through the years, I have done some crazy things to get close to a man in glasses. I have to say that glasses wasn't the only thing that got me going. There had to more to it than that. I remember one incident in my younger days, when I was seeing a very handsome, MIG. Went to meet him at work and saw him without his glasses. I knew that he needed his glasses badly. Turns out he broke his glasses in a fist fight. It was his only pair and was struggling to get through the days until he got a new pair made. What turned me on the most was that he really needed those glasses! He complained of headaches and it just made me melt. I wanted to comfort him and pamper him. I knew how nearsighted he was. Oh, he was so cute with or without his glasses! OMG!


guest555 27 Jan 2009, 09:19

Sorry guys, but this dissertion about whether glasses on a guy leads to explore the dark sides of soul's getting kinda out of place... VFL, I'm sure you're such a fine lady and to be treu and honest, if I was str8 I'd love to be with a girl like you, who besides my thick glasses likes my spirit, anyway... I wanted to tell that just the other day I went to this gay bar and I saw something you don't get to see every day, a guy about 40-something, fair skin, average built, cropped hair, both ears pierced, wearing black leather boots, pants and jacket, and bearing some of the thickest eyeglasses I've seen. They were light-grey tinted myodisks with quite a plus carrier and fitted in an oval shaped plastic black frame... at first I thought of them as plusses with a reading add, but after a closer look and examination I realised they were myo's... not the biconcave type, but the single one... When he arrived I noticed most guys just took a look at him and got off right away... In my case, I'm not a big fan of skinhead leather guys, although I guess the leather bit was OK on hi, he had a decent looking body, but if it wasn't for the glasses I wouldn't have given him a second glance! When I went to the john I saw him closer and I saw both his eyes very extremely tiny behind them, almost impossible to see since the reflections were very extensive. I noodded at him, he nooded back and went off... since I was with a friend, I coudn't tarce him...I'm hoping I can go there once more and maybe get to see him again, so I can get a chance to chat with him...


Katy 27 Jan 2009, 08:08

VFL, lol, I don't think Mits sounds like he would like to be smacked, but that's a whole other story...

Looking back, I can't believe some of the things I have done because of men with glasses. I know exactly how you feel, all reason goes out the window. It's as though it has more control of me than I do of it. But I don't think I have much choice about it, it's always there, whether I want it or not. And you're right that's it's a mixed blessing - it makes life more complicated, but a lot more interesting... :-)


VFL 26 Jan 2009, 18:39

Thank you for coming to my defense Katy. Mits is mean and should be smacked.

It is all about thinking not acting. Aren't most of our glasses thoughts fantasies anyway? Mine are. Sometimes they overwhelm me. I'm a very sensitve person. Men I fancy who need glasses to see clearly make me come undone. It is my Achilles heel so to speak. I look into those corrected eyes and lose control of all reason. It has gotten me into trouble in more than one occasion. I give too much emotionally because of it. That is a very bad thing because sometimes the man behind the lenses is not worthy.

Definitely not worthy. But the glasses (and the power rings) draw me in. What can I do?

If you can only say something snotty, don't bother to comment. Remember, I am a real person and a real woman and not a fake. This is as raw and as real as it gets. I am putting it out there for all of you like minded people to see.


Dieter 26 Jan 2009, 14:14

Well said, Pete!

As far as glasses being considered sex toys, they do a lot more for me than anything else. But especially when they are real. Everything else seems like props, including fake glasses.

VFL, hope that helps.


ehpc 26 Jan 2009, 13:58

Being a very 'straight' man, I see stylish glasses on women as a sign of intelligence, competence, courage (look at me- I'm a hot GWG!!!), confidence,and the woman having her head together. That's the turn on for me.......................Pete


Katy 26 Jan 2009, 13:44

Mits - I think you're on the wrong website, or at least the wrong thread.

Glasses and S&M equipment do have some things in common, if you see glasses as a sign of vulnerability and helplessness, which quite a few people do.

If you had read what VFL said, she was talking about *thinking* about guys, not sleeping with them. But if she wants to sleep with them too, then that's up to her :-)


Mits 26 Jan 2009, 12:07

VFL,

What are we supposed to say? You seem to equate glasses and hopping into the sack with a guy. Do you really sleep with that many men, or do you just make it sound like that?

We need our glasses to see, and for most of us, that all it is. They are not some sex toy like a vibrator or S&M equipment.


VFL 26 Jan 2009, 08:55

It would be really nice if someone would respond to what I said. I am a very real person and kind of going through a hard time. You could say I'm asking for commiseration. Or help so to speak.


VFL 25 Jan 2009, 16:21

Wilder. No one in my real life knows how I really feel. I hide it really well. I have this ability to make every man who wears glasses that I fancy to take them off almost immediately and place them in my hands.

It is a mixed blessing and curse. I lie awake nights and re-live these moments.

Thank God I hold myself so well.

Now you know.


Alan 23 Jan 2009, 04:26

How can anyone not realize this is a wig - and not just any old wig, but the worst in US political history? It's not just his glasses he has to take off at night.


Phil 23 Jan 2009, 01:31

Oh Clare, I hate to think of you being lonely! Why don't you pop down to one of the many optical stores and get a test and some new specs? Hong Kong's a veritable cornucopia of frames and lense-types!


Mits 22 Jan 2009, 14:57

VLF,

Are you as wild as you sound?


VFL 22 Jan 2009, 14:13

I don't think it is a wig. I think he just has a rotten hairdo. Poor boy needs to grow it out and get it styled. He probably goes to an old fashioned barber who takes his glasses from him and only gives them back when the "deed" is done.

He has potential. But I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers if you know what I mean.


Clare 22 Jan 2009, 10:27

mmm I'm not sure if he's wearing a wig.

But it maybe that I'm just sad and lonely and jet lagged and working in HK this week ;)


VFL 22 Jan 2009, 05:08

He is beyond handsome. I'll campaign for him and clean his glasses before every speech. It will be a sacrifice on my part but somebody has to do it for the good of the country.


tinyeyes 21 Jan 2009, 22:39

Yeah, I realized that after posting this. There is a lot of stuff on the internet about whether he is wearing a toupee. I think it may just be a bad haircut. I originally saw a really cute picture of him in the newspaper, where his hair looked great. Well anyway, he would be handsome if bald, too, I think. But definitely needs to get a better haircut and/or get rid of the toupee if it is one!


Myopic Grant 21 Jan 2009, 21:14

He's handsome...just wish his hair didn't look like a wig.

 20 Jan 2009, 16:32

they can't wear contacts?


Todd 20 Jan 2009, 16:11

There is a grocery chain in my city which tells its employees that if they have been prescribed glasses they must wear them at work. They need to be able to see across the store or across the parking lot, so no matter how slightly nearsighted, or farsighted for that matter, that someone is, they have to wear their glasses.

The result: a lot of young stockers, checkers and bag boys with glasses. Same with the female employees there, too.

I wonder if they grew "dependent" on their glasses this way? Do they just become full-timers?


Cut-in UK 19 Jan 2009, 13:20

JoJo; assuming you are female, at -10 you are a goddess to many of us ! Tell us a little more about yourself and your optical history and how you feel about wearing glasses.


Myopic Grant 19 Jan 2009, 09:21

In regards to Joe Jonas, I think in the first picture, the pair of glasses he's wearing are someone elses. He's doing a face that looks like he's just put on someone's glasses and he's saying, "you're SO blind." even though they look to be only about -2.00. Plus they look like female frames, and not a style that would suit him. It's hard to tell in the second picture, but there looks to be very little prescription.


ehpc 19 Jan 2009, 07:35

There certainly are emphatically 'straight' men who adore women wearing minus 10. Me especially :) Pete


Katy 19 Jan 2009, 04:27

I don't think jojo was being anti-gay, I think she meant it's a shame there aren't any straight men here who would appreciate her -10 glasses. Which there are, of course :-)

He is adorable and I love how he unabashedly wears his glasses when he needs them. Makes me wish I were a gay man!!!!


Myopic Grant 27 Dec 2008, 10:36

I think Craig is adorable! (voice and all) I would jump on a plane any day to have a date with him...


WideOpen 25 Dec 2008, 16:16

Just checked out craigsjourney on youtube. I wonder if he looks and sounds better in person. His camera doesn't look like it's the best quality. Has anybody ever met him?

Wow, I just found out this guy I got together with a couple of times had lasik.. bummer.. He was -10.0! It's amazing how lasik has progressed to that point these days... and depressing!!!!


tinyeyes 24 Dec 2008, 18:50

Yes, bald guys with strong glasses are extra sexy to me for some reason...

And you're probably right about Craig's voice. The one problem with David King -- he's a straight man!


James 24 Dec 2008, 05:23

Me too. There's something about David King's baldness, piercing blue eyes and clear comfort with and acceptance of wearing glasses that makes him sexier than Craig could ever be.

Craig is also sexy, at least until he starts talking. I tend to turn the sound off on his YouTube videos.


tinyeyes 23 Dec 2008, 22:18

Well if I had to pick, I would have to say I find David King much sexier than Craig. I'm not sure why. David's VERY nerdy, though! Funny, they have about the same prescription.


Cleventine 23 Dec 2008, 13:33

Craig isn't sexy. I think he's a nerd.


James 23 Dec 2008, 08:02

I never get tired of David King:

Yeah, he is sexy.. you know those coke bottles go on before the robe and before his feet hit the floor in the morning!


Guest 19 Dec 2008, 12:34

Our pal Craig in his glasses and robe. I envy his boyfriend who gets to see this every morning.

Dear Jo,

Do you know the name of the girl failing the eye test ?

Thanks


Jo 06 Dec 2008, 01:50

he's one of the guys. but admittedly, he kinda resemble a girl...


Seeker 05 Dec 2008, 18:45

The guy at the start has a great squint and he's probably not the most myopic. Jo is it the other guy or one of the girls.


Jo 05 Dec 2008, 05:12

basically, he was telling how he once rode bare eye on a scooter, when he was younger with a prescription of -5, and was caught by the traffic police, cos he went past them without seeing them. the name of this guy is "高山峰" (gao shanfeng) and you can do a search for him if you like. But mainly, the pictures of him are without glasses.


tinyeyes 04 Dec 2008, 22:26

That's a wonderful video! But of course I can't understand a thing. I love the guy who shows up around 4:30. What is he talking about? Can you translate?

These Asian shows are SOOO goofy!


jo 04 Dec 2008, 18:22

hi nzoptic,

thanks in advance for your consideration. but before you get around to doing that, here's my contribution.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4BK2jHu2Bkk

this video shows some taiwanese selebrities talking about their struggle with myopia and sometime into the show, they even put on their prescription glasses, with the highest among them having double digits. if you understand mandarin, there's even part one and two of the video where they discuss about their issues with more depth. enjoy.

nzoptic 03 Dec 2008, 00:15

I am sorry Jo that you found the experiece so unmoving. I am sure we are all well served by that knowledge and will try harder to meet your specifc needs with our posts in future.


Jo 02 Dec 2008, 21:55

No offence here. He's rather goodlooking, but if you ask me, it's not worth the effort watching the video because of him, at least for me...


JP 02 Dec 2008, 14:37

And a jolly good thing too Melyssa. There's nothing like a bride in glasses!! Was it an excuse for a new pair (or two)?


Melyssa 28 Nov 2008, 06:39

My husband and I wore our glasses in all of the pictures at our wedding, including the posed pictures, and we still both wear our glasses in photos to this day.


Emily 27 Nov 2008, 20:58

About -1.00 per year in recent years.


Martyn 27 Nov 2008, 16:17

HI Emily gosh i,m shocked at the rapid increase of your RX over a couple of years, your RX has almost doubled, going on at theis rate you will need myodisc glasses, how would feel weaing those glasses. Hope your doing well at Uni long time since had sent you a little message. take good care Martyn


Martyn 27 Nov 2008, 16:13

HI Tinyeyes, i have a friend who is a professional photographer, he always likes glasses wearers to take their glasses off especially if they have a high minus RX,

10 the lenses can act like mirrors and distort the picture. 2) the eyes are an important part of having a good pic taken.

Wearing high minus RX glasses the glasses are noticed more than the person behind them.

I agree take your specs off to have your pic taken.


Emily 27 Nov 2008, 16:09

Tinyeyes -- Over -2 each diopter correlates to about 20/n, so -8 would be about 20/800. I'm -14.50 and my optometrist says I'm about 20/1,400.


tinyeyes 27 Nov 2008, 13:49

Yeah, people tend to have most of their pics taken without glasses unless they wear them all the time (sometimes even then!) Does anyone know the RX for 20/800? I'm guessing around -8 or so, but I know it doesn't exactly correlate.


russell 27 Nov 2008, 11:23

Concerning the discussion board mentioned in the previous post: isn't it interesting that so many of the guys say they love their glasses, never go without them, or prefer to wear them over contacts--and yet, their pictures are bare-eyed?


tinyeyes 26 Nov 2008, 16:43

Just found a glasses discussion online at this website: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/250818/

Most interesting was this cutie,

http://www.realjock.com/profile/?id=145647

who says, "I almost always wear my contacts (RGPs) instead of my glasses. But this isn't for vanitys sake. My vision is horrible (somewhere around 20/800) and the lack of peripheral with the glasses drives me crazy. Plus to not have the glasses be thicker than coke bottles and extremely heavy on my nose, I have to get the smallest frames available. Which severly limits my range of vision to what is directly in front of my eyes. Then I can't just move my eyes to look at something I have to turn my whole head. However, if it weren't for the limited vision I would probably choose the glasses because the upkeep on the contacts can be a pain sometimes. And I definately agree that some guys look really hot with the right pair of glasses."

Too bad we don't get to see him in his glasses, because they sound like high-minus wonders!


tinyeyes 24 Nov 2008, 00:00

Thanks, 6.0. You look great! I would love to see you in your high-index lenses, too. This reminds me of a few years ago when my then-roommate had a friend visiting who I discovered wore hard contacts and VERY thick, large outdated coke-bottles not unlike the ones you're wearing in the videos. His RX was around -9 (very close to mine). At the time I had a pair of high index glasses with very small wire frames that were quite thin. I tried on his glasses (when he wasn't around) and realized our prescription was almost exactly the same. I was amazed that I could have such thin lenses, yet still see clearly through his thick glasses! They must have been about 3/8" of an inch thick. Although quite a bit older than me, he was very attractive -- tall and muscular. I only saw him wearing the glasses early in the morning a couple of times during his visit. I still wonder what he would have thought if he'd tried MY high-indexers on. He never knew anything about my fetish or my attraction to him.

Mark One 22 Nov 2008, 21:43

Interesting few months watching Kevin Rose--former Tech TV host, founder of Digg and current Diggnation host. Back in May he put out a tweet that said, "I need glasses - I've denied it for a long time, but the time has come - not all the time, just for certain tasks. Suggestions?"

http://explore.twitter.com/kevinrose/statuses/822088479

Then in june during Diggnation episode 153, he tired on his co-host's glasses and exclaimed, "Holy Hell I'm blind." among other things.

http://revision3.com/diggnation/2008-06-05epic/

Finally this week, he showed up wearing his own pair. Interestingly the episode was done as a multiview, meaning the viewer can chose from multiple camera angles--including one that's a close up of Kevin and his new frames.

http://revision3.com/remix/

Decent frame selection. And the lenses while not high for this crowd seem not unsubstantial for a first prescription. Hopefully he will wear them often, despite his protestations at the opening of the episode.

As far as that goes, at least his teeth look (and presumably are) natural.

...with all that money you'd think he'd have better teeth. At least his glasses are strong.

I don't know if I can create links to two videos on youtube, but I'm going to try.

Both of the following links are of guys with super strong plus lenses. In each case, watch to the end of the video when they put their glasses on.

Eustace 28 Oct 2008, 04:20

I appreciated Kendyl's honesty regarding the Matt postings. I agree that it might be a good idea to have a separate thread for those of us who would like to share our fantasies (and get reactions from others) but who are not quite ready to complete (or send to one of the fiction websites) a finished story. I have lived in a fantasy world since childhood--many (but not all) of them sexual. I too have many ideas for stories but just don't seem to have the time (or maybe the self-confidence) to sit down and write a more complete story. Or, I keep changing things around in them. It would be nice to be able to float an idea for a fantasy and solicit reactions--sort of a writers workshop approach, I guess. I WONDER IF WURM WOULD CONSIDER A SEPARATE THREAD FOR SUCH? It might be simply called "Fantasies" or "Stories in Progress." I can understand that many posters in Eyescene have serious questions and problems that they wish to share and to get advice on--or even just true experiences and sightings that they would like to share. They should not have to sift though our fantasies.

Of course, I would prefer separate threads for gay fantasies and straight fantasies--but I suppose us "Fantasy Psters" could begin our posts with some kind of label--Gay Men, Gay Women, Straight Men, Straight Women, etc.

What do some of the rest of you think? Also, it would be great, if someone would send a post giving the contact information (e-mails, etc.) for getting stories "published" in one of the fiction websites--all in one directory.


Kendyl 27 Oct 2008, 22:22

For those of you interested in the "Matt" postings, please refer to my posting in XXX Links ONLY if you are not offending by honesty!


Eustace 27 Oct 2008, 14:36

Very interesting exchanges about Matt's postings! I was not duped by this one. I have been fooled in the past. For example, Mark who claimed to be extremely myopic (with trifocals, as I recall), hearing aids, paralyzed from the waist down, a wheelchair racer, and with an entire family with vision and hearing disabilities (and even a brother who was a double amputee)! And then there were the teenage twins who had rapidly-worsening vision and hearing. Actually Matt's story was rather exciting, if just a bit too pathetic. (One of the most unconvincing lines was the one about his not having an old, back-up pair of glasses--because his mother insisted in giving all of his old glasses to charity!) Actually, Matt could work this into quite an erotic story for one of the gay glasses fetish websites: Those mean locker room boys could strip all of his clothes off and throw him into the shower (with his glasses on, of course). He could then bargain with the gang that, if they would promise not to touch his glasses, they could "have their way with him."

"On the internet, no one knows you're a dog." ::)


tinyeyes 24 Oct 2008, 22:23

Regarding the fake stuff, I guess I'm pretty naive. I really thought the Matt story was real. I guess because I was bullied as a child, I was more susceptible (although it wasn't because of glasses per se). To me, the internet seems like a place where there is no reason to lie, because it's all relatively anonymous, so it strikes me as odd when people do it. I guess some people get a kick or a turn-on of some kind out of making up a story and getting reactions. I would think they wouldn't waste their time on online pranks -- wouldn't it be more fun to play a joke on someone in person, so you can see their reaction?? Oh well, go figure.

Wurm, thanks for running the site and taking care of all this!


Julian 24 Oct 2008, 16:54

Well Kendyl, there are places for posting glasses-related fiction. There are Yahoo groups called 'glassesfetishfiction' (the founder of which has resigned and left me i charge!) and'gayglassesfetishfiction'. I have seen another site too, which I found much more sexually explicit and less congenial. And then of course there's Bobby's wonderful archive at http://bobbygoc.sweb.cz - I suggest that's the place for writing fantasies, though I must admit I used EyeScene in this way in the early days - and I wasn't alone in this either.


Kendyl 24 Oct 2008, 13:30

Is it against the websites policy to post fictional stories to fulfill fantasies? I thought this was what the website was about, for OO's to come together and be able to share their stories/fantasies/etc and maybe some are true and some are not true but where else are we going to post our fantasy stories about glasses? Maybe I was wrong about the purpose of this website but as I posted, I have been coming here for years and years and generally post under a different name because I usually go awhile without posting.


Wurm 24 Oct 2008, 13:06

I might add that the usual internet caveat applies -- don't start exchanging personal info with someone you aren't certain about.


Wurm 24 Oct 2008, 13:03

No worries all. I have the distinct advantage of visitor log data to review.

Maybe someday I'll post my list of dead giveaways, but I think Julian's approach has a lot to recommend it (take posts at face value unless something really jumps out at you). No sense in everyone getting all paranoid - that's my job!


-10 24 Oct 2008, 07:02

If it sounds too good/compelling/heart-wrenching/captivating to be true... it probably is.


-14 24 Oct 2008, 06:57

I'm glad that Wurm exposed the hoax. It kept me from making more of a fool of myself.


Julian 24 Oct 2008, 00:54

I guess Wurm was able to see that the posts came from someone else's address. I generally take posts at their face value, but even I thought Matt's style was remarkably adult for a high school freshman.


tinyeyes 23 Oct 2008, 21:21

Gosh, well if it was fake, I feel duped and naive. How do we know it was fake?


VFL 23 Oct 2008, 09:39

Katy, that lens thickness and the power rings does me in every time. If it is the right man who really does it for me he could be reciting the phone book and I would be mesmorized. The first time I saw a handsome guy in obviously strong rimless glasses with highly polished lenses I nearly tripped over a Manhattan curb at rush hour. (Of course without them he would have as well.)

It just goes to show that the best things in life are free!


Katy 23 Oct 2008, 09:07

Alan - wow! 'I want to show you the edge thickness'... :-)


Galileo 23 Oct 2008, 08:18

Well I read Matt's posts and I immediately though "fiction". Wurm (as usual) spotted the inauthenticity. Stories like that are just too stereotypical, even down to the prescription.


Alan 23 Oct 2008, 01:14

Looks as if Wurm is keeping track of urls to identify fictional posters - ie, people who post bogus autobiography. Good. It's annoying enough to have what are in effect short stories published as real testimony - and really sad when people manifest genuine sympathy or are otherwise taken in. Wurm, since the bullshit detectors of regulars on this site don't work very well, I'm glad you're activating yours!

Why were the Matt posts deleted? What is going on here??? Of all posts, why would those be deleted? This person (if for real) is really crying out for help here!


Kendyl 22 Oct 2008, 11:41

Wurm:

I am not sure what is going on with this website but it seems that certain posts are being deleting intentionally and I am not sure why. I have been visiting this website/posting for about 8 years now, going on 9 and at times I do change my name because I go awhile without posting and at the time, feel a different name suites me best.


Wurm 22 Oct 2008, 10:43

One username per person, please.

If you are a regular with an occasional alter-ego, I can tolerate that. I'm more concerned with people who try to develop a suite of characters on the site, or are serial trolls.


-14 22 Oct 2008, 10:41

What has happened to the 5 or 6 previous postings?


-14 22 Oct 2008, 10:38

Maybe Wurm should start a new thread - "I don't believe it" - so all the "Anons" can have their own forum and leave the posters who need some help and confidence building alone.

Matt - don't give up on us. Many of us have been through the same thing and together maybe we can help you through this. I know how tough it must have been to be bullied and then embarrassed by mother nature and left blind and hurt. Speaking for myself my heart is with you.


tinyeyes 16 Oct 2008, 20:11

Oh, he finally sent me photos... he's a sweet guy. I won't share them online unless he says I can, though...


tinyeyes 15 Oct 2008, 23:32

He's 25 years old. We don't live in the same city, so it was basically a one-time encounter. In the end I think it was more of a friend vibe for me, even though the glasses were amazing. Unfortunately, I may have scared him off, because he won't answer my email!


Eustace 15 Oct 2008, 20:23

Tinyeyes:

What an exciting and wonderful encounter! I hope things develop into a least a nice friendship for you--though I can imagine that it might be fraught with frustrations. (It would be for me.) How old is he?


tinyeyes 14 Oct 2008, 20:29

I was out of town this weekend and I met a guy at the gym who wears -13 glasses...we talked and ended up hanging out for a bit, but it was kind of an awkward encounter. He was 25, from Taiwan and has only been in the U.S. for 2 years. When I told him I liked his glasses, he was very surprised and told me how he hates, hates, hates wearing glasses (Which is understandable) It makes it weird and awkward when someone is saying they find the glasses a turn-on, since it's a very negative thing to him. I've found this before with guys, but it was especially so with this guy. He told me didn't get glasses until he was 10 years old, and was a -4 at that point. He tried some kind of Chinese medicine thing to correct his vision without glasses, but it didn't work and within a couple of years he was -9! I think it was a very traumatic experience for him. By the time he finished high school, he was up to -12. He said he's tried contacts (hard RGP) but finds them very uncomfortable. He's hoping to try for Lasik (probably impossible for him) or ICL or PRK. I wanted to discourage him, but I understand how he feels. Guys with OO fetish are few and far between, and in the gay world it can be tough for someone who must wear -13 glasses all the time!

As far as how we met, I saw him as we were both coming into the gym together at the same time, and did a double-take when I was how strong his specs were. I said hi, not even sure if he was gay. As I worked out, I couldn't keep from looking at him because his glasses were quite unusual with lots of cutin and distortion (of course). Finally, he came up to me and started talking! Very nice guy, but a bit of a language barrier and also just beginning to come out. All in all it was an interesting experience!

Wow! That must be like a -18 prescription! Awesome...

[NOTE: This is a repost of a previous message. We are trying to reach the widest possible audience, and we apologize if you see multiple copies of this message.]

Dear readers (man or woman),

We are a group of scientists from Sweden and Italy doing research on sexuality. Many sensitive issues in sexuality are poorly understood, mostly due to lack of research. To partly remedy this, we do research on "fetishism", broadly defined as sexual preferences that are both fairly strong and not very common. No moral judgment is implied: we simply view fetishism as one expression of human sexuality.

We post here to advertise a survey that targets people who are sexually aroused by a partner or potential partner wearing EYEGLASSES/SPECTACLES. To take the survey, click on the link below. It will take at most 20 minutes to complete the survey. We offer a substantial privacy guarantee: no sensitive data will be monitored or stored at our site, only the answers you explicitly provide.

To take the survey click:

Geeks not Freaks-- he's cute. His large frames make his RX look stronger. He's maybe about -7?

Good question. I've never seen any evidence of Obama having glasses. I think Hillary Clinton is very myopic, but that's off the guys topic.


guest 13 Sep 2008, 09:39

Lately there's been all this buzz about Sarah Palin's glasses. What about Barack Obama? I recall seeing a lifesize cutout of him at Union Station in DC and I swear he was holding a pair of glasses with minus lenses. Anyone know if he is myopic?

James, he might not be an oil painting nowadays but 25 years and 25 pounds ago he might have been. Also 25 years ago was pre high index lenses. He is definitely in the double digits. I hope you get the opportunity to meet face to face someday and that you get to talk about and try those glasses on.


James 03 Sep 2008, 11:19

I have this weird thing where I have to google the people I am exchanging emails with at work to check what they look like.

and today, I unearthed this gem:

http://www.routledges.co.za/routmod/modules/OurPeople6/content/index.php?id=7&bio&uid=AlastairMorphet@eversheds.co.za

OK. so he is no oil painting, but there is some quite considerable myopia there to be sure.

Can somebody hazard a guess? I was thinking definitely double digits, but not too sure whereabouts....

For those of you who watch Project Runway would have seen that Keith was let go last night. He was cute and probably was around a -3. I counted about three different styles of frames that he wore...

I've been a big Elvis Costello fan for many years, but not because of the glasses. He actually looks pretty cute without the glasses in that old clip!

I agree, he's dreamy, although without the glasses he'd be much less so. I think -13 is a good guess for the RX. Maybe even higher?


James 19 Aug 2008, 00:55

Tinyeyes,

WOW! That guy leaves me a bit breathless and at a loss for words.

A dream guy in every sense of the word. And clearly so confortable in his glasses, because he has no other choice. Also not a heavy duty contact lens wearer (I scoured all the pics), and his face looks kinda naked without the glasses.

Also a dream Rx....am very bad at estimating, but I'd say well into double digits, say -13....your thoughts?

tinyeyes 09 Aug 2008, 16:20

WOW guys... GREAT new links! I'm still digesting all this.... especially the two Asian guys... gosh, Asia and Asians are such paradise for high myopia OOs!

James, I agree with you about the Singapore politician... he's quite striking with those small frames. It's hard to guess but I would he's closer to -15 than -10. Maybe some of our Asian readers can enlighten us, but I think double-digit myopia is quite ordinary in places like Singapore. I think these days, really small frames have fallen out of style somewhat, but they continue to be used for people with really strong RXs to keep thickness down. It also helps hide how small the eyes look in relation to the glasses frames. It's definitely hot! Good find.... I also LOVE the guy who posted his RX slip.

As for the French guy, who knows what he's saying? Those myodiscs he's wearing are intriguing. Any idea of the RX there?

He also has a blog. It's pretty dry, but there are links to lots of videos (better quality) of him speaking:

http://siewkumhong.blogspot.com/

So my usual question: can anyone guess the Rx? Watching the BBC story (Gaaaah! I wish I could find a video link to it) I was SURE it was well into the teens, but now, I'm starting to doubt myself).

PS - sorry for doing this in 4 parts. There is obviously a limit on the number of links per post that I was not aware of

This morning on the BBC World New Business programme, they had an interview with a Singaporean member of parliament. Needless to say, after I saw his glasses, I completely lost my faculties and could not remember, if my life depended on it, what the interview was about.

OMIGOD. Such strong glasses. what's funny is that the BBC cameraman was a closet (or maybe not closet) OO. More than once, he filmed through the lenses of this guy's glasses, and you saw the TINY interviewer on the park bench next to him.

Anyway, I've scoured the internet, but alas, it is not to be found, even on the BBC's gargantuan website. It had the feel of a filler story anyway.

Here are some pictures of him found during my Friday fodder of procrastinatory internet perusal:

This one, his parliament website photo, does the Rx NO justice:

Oops, i missed that.. but thankfully, according to the latest update on aug 2008, he's still in glasses with a bump in prescription.

Just had a similar experience to the one I posted the other day...I was at the gym (one I don't usually go to) in the locker room, and had another one of my contact-taking-out viewings. But wow, this was a really good one! The guy went to a locker near mine, and I immediately noticed that he was very good looking -- tall, very nice build, white, early 30s, short brown hair with a slightly receding hairline, looked like a hunky young attorney. He was all sweaty from his workout. I didn't pay too much attention until -- of course --- I saw the glasses case and contact lens case come out of his locker. He took the glasses out of the case, then uncapped the contact case and started pinching out his lenses. The contact case was resting on the bench behind his glasses, and I could see that the contact case looked very very small through the lens of his glasses. Yes!! He held the case very close as he put the last contact in, and then put on his glasses. Oh wow, this already very hot guy looked SO sexy with his black rim glasses on, his blue-gray eyes tiny, his RX about -8. The lens edges stuck out from his frames quite a bit too. VERY nice.... and he looked really relieved to have his contacts out, too. I watched him as long as I could...but unfortunately I also noticed a wedding ring. This guy was so my type, I was getting kind of a weird heart-pounding feeling.. I love when that happens!

Tinyeyes... that sighting about the guy removing his contacts sounds just great!! I've done that myself b4 taking a flight and on some other occasion, (like when I'm at work and my contacvts start bothering me after some hours in front of the screen) and I've found people looking at me with a mixed thrill and surprised look... I guess it all has to do with most people thinking that the putting/taking out contacts thing is one of the most difficult tasks in the world, and watching it being done with such ease and calm... don't you think??


tinyeyes 21 Jul 2008, 08:30

I was traveling this week and as usual, had a number of interesting sightings. Airports are great for seeing a variety of good looking guys, many with surprisingly strong RXs. One fun sighting was in the airport bathroom, where I saw a very cute guy in his early 20s taking out his contacts (probably in preparation for a long flight). Then he took his glasses out of a case, cleaned them carefully and put them on. His RX was only about -3 or so, but watching a guy remove contacts and put on glasses is a favorite fantasy for me.

Also, at the event I traveled to, there was a tall, ex-military type guy, late 30s maybe, who wore glasses around -10. What made it more interesting is that his glasses were large round wire-rims, and very thick with flat fronts. They looked like they were from the early 1990s. The cut-in and concentric rings were amazing! He had light blue eyes that looked small and distant in his specs. I think they may have been CR39. I remember when that type of glasses were popular and I miss it a little! I saw him switching from the glasses to a pair of RX sunglasses once, but he was too far away for me to check out the sunglasses. They must have been thick too! He made the switch seamlessly, using one hand to remove his glasses while the other hand brought the sunglasses to his face.


VFL 21 Jul 2008, 01:05

Yup, I'm a gusher all right.

Isn't it funny that something that lots of people find a "negative" is a "positive" in our eyes?

It just goes to show that as my grand-mama used to say, "There is a lid for every pot."

Love makes the world go 'round. Our little "quirk" is part of that. There is nothing wrong with it or bad. It's just a piece of human nature that has somehow manifested itself.

You say that you are English and traditionally educated. I am going to say it outloud...smart is sexy! And oh, gosh, by golly, that accent is also cute, cute, cute...uh, and darling as well. Glasses are something that smart people tend to "need." (In some cases dumb people as well...ha!)

I am all passion and expression...but, gosh, isn't this glasses thing great? There are other "quirks" in this world, but isn't ours just the greatest? It is so common and doesn't hurt anybody.

You guys in your specs...cute, cute, CUTE! Thanks for lettin' me look...


Cut-in UK  20 Jul 2008, 23:57

VFL, I'm with you all the way on the effect of power rings. For me it is that flicker as a -5 to -7 woman turns their head slightly towards you and half a dozen or so rings suddenly fill the side of the lens! It is a defining moment, even though I do not have the gift of being as overtly expressive or passionate as yourself,(I'm English, and traditionally educated!) I can still sense that trigger of a 'rush'. It really is great for those O-O's who have t
