Thank you for the update. That really explains everything. I tuned in this morning at 7;15AM and she wasn't on. I'm not sure if she was on in the 6 AM time slot or not.

I would guess having having a corneal ulcer it will be sometime before she can return to wearing contacts if ever. I believe corneal ulcers usually occurs with contact lens wearers. After this even if she allowed to wear contacts again I wonder if she might be afraid to wear contacts anymore. Time will tell as she recovers if she will go to full time glasses wear or not.

Robin Meade:

Soundmanpt 18 Jul 2018, 15:54

She made me jack off so much that I nearly blew my mind. I sprayed cum all over the television set and had to wipe it off for hours. Somehow I even sprayed cum into my speakers. Robin Meade really cranks my old ass juices up. I can't wait until tomorrow. Now where did I put that money I saved for extra Depends?

Soundmanpt 18 Jul 2018, 14:45

yesterday morning I happened to be awake in time to watch the early part of "Morning Express with Robin Meade" It was good to see her wearing a really cute little pair of rimless glasses. But before her show was over she was replaced by another reporter for the remainder of her show. Robin made some comment about her eyes getting better. Does anyone have any idea what she was referring to? I can only assume that she may have had some kind of issue with her contacts which was preventing her from wearing contacts? I didn't wake up early enough today, so by the time I turned it on the same young lady had replaced her again so I can only assume that Robin was again wearing glasses. Most likely she will continue wearing glasses at least through Friday? I may set my alarm so I can see if she is wearing glasses Thursday morning.

Because most of you people in Europe are socialist, you do not understand America, its governmental system, or the mindset of the American patriot. We do not consider Americans that promote socialism as patriots.

It was the American patriots that elected Trump, and we feel very pleased that he is carrying out the promises that we elected him to do. We call this the will of the people.

Americans have for many years had the highest standard of living in the world, but were slowly losing it, the due to socialism, and globalism.

In America almost everyone OWNS their own home, often with a fair amount of acreage of land, and usually both adult members own a car each. At age 16 most children get their own car, so many times there are four or more cars in each home.

We saw this being threatened, and hence the election of Trump.

Previous Presidents have given vast amounts of our money, and resources, away to foreign countries. This is ending under Trump, not because he wants to do it, but that " we the people want it done. That is the way our system is supposed to be.

If you Europeans, or others want foreign aid, go find some other nation that will give it to you. And if you want our military to help you, you are very soon going to have to pay us for that. You have milked America for too many years, through NATO, and The United Nations. That is ending also because "we the people" demand it.

This is what we mean when we say "America First, and MAGA".

And if you do not like this, so be it, because we the people want America first.

lonny 04 Jul 2018, 06:04

Really everybody in Europe is laughing or concerned about this dangerous clown you have as president in the US.

I guess the rest of the world is just waiting and hoping that the damage he does is repearable after his term.

Robin Meade's rimless glasses on her blog

Soundmanpt 29 Jun 2018, 22:28


Lv2c4i 29 Jun 2018, 05:57

After a week of resting her eyes (from a corneal ulcer), Robin Meade returned to her anchor gig this week. She's worn her glasses every day--not unexpectedly. Wonder if it is a temporary or now permanent necessity for her eyes (no more contacts)?

The first two days she wore her "old" glasses, but these past couple of days she's worn a nearly rimless (and much more subtle) frame. Again, wondering what the future will bring? She is very attractive and while I do prefer the dark plastic frames, the variety is nice--and always provocative.

Some might find video post on FBk at the Good Morning America page interesting. As minutes are counted down to the start of the show everyday, one of their anchors/staff/reporters posts a "behind-the-scenes" FBk Live video. Often it is Ginger Zee and she wears her glasses--which she has put away by the time she's on the air.

Today, it was Adrienne Bankert who made the video. She appears at first wearing glasses and explains that that is both rare and a result of forgetting to put in her contacts. Then, in the course of the 6 or 8 minute video, she puts in her contacts and readies for her on the air reporting.

Vulgar mouth

Yes, Trump is not a soldier, and Constitutionally is the Supreme Commandeer of all of the U.S. armed forces.

In this Commandeer in Chief position he is to be saluted, and proper protocol, and manners call for him to return a salute.

I was taught many years ago that people that use vulgarity to express themselves , lack the knowledge to communicate on a subject so believe they impress others by resorting to vulgar language.

I suspect that in your case it is due to being a product of the public fool system, where you received an indoctrination, rather than an education.

It is obvious that you have never been in the military.

A salute is given to the RANK of an officer.It is part of military tradition, and has nothing to do with political affiliation, or whether the officer is a friend or foe.

Perfectly the proper protocol.

On the other hand our last communist, sodomite, Muslim, mulatto so called President had a habit of bowing to people, which was a total disgrace.

 14 Jun 2018, 08:41

Everything with the North Korea Summit was done half ass, and all that was really accomplished was making Trump look good to his followers who know anything about world affairs, and how things like that really work. It's all about optics with this idiot, and any time he can distract from the investigation is a win for him, he thinks. Plus, praising and going on and on with compliments with a dictator who treats his people like slaves, and has killed AT LEAST his uncle and brother is a disgrace. Can you imagine how the Warmbier family, (who's son was beaten and tortured into a coma) felt to see this appalling behavior,..Trump is pure evil, and has no right being president. He only was able to win by making up hundreds of lies about Hillary, and convincing his uninformed, gullible followers that they were true. It's the same thing he has always done with his businesses. He is the dirtiest, lying con man in the business world, but most laymen who've never had to deal with him don't know this,..he IS the new mafia.

Yoyo 13 Jun 2018, 16:13

Trump's "agreement" with North Korea is extremely short on specifics. It's barely an agreement at all.

The only thing I'll give him credit for here is that he didn't actively escalate tensions with NK, so I don't think we're any closer to nuclear war. Small blessings.

What's the concern about Trump squinting, closing one eye, using extremely large print and refusing to wear glasses. History teaches that dictators do not wear glasses as this would make them appear weak. I guess orange skin, strange hair and long, long times do not fit into the equation.

Trump might be wearing contacts----one contact for distance and one contact for close-up. Might be why he is closing one eye to read distance and then closing the other eye when reading from close-up documents. Closing an eye is how he copes.

New style frames for a couple of our news ladies. Erica Hill had new frames earlier this week. She'd opted for a thicker frame style. Meanwhile, Alisyn Camerata went the other way as she is now wearing a much more subtle frame style, looks to still be plastic but almost as thin as wire rims. Different styles for different folks--likely why most eyewear stores/offices have racks and racks and racks of choices.

Hollowed said on Twitter she is getting LASIK.

Soundmanpt 12 Apr 2018, 11:06

About 2 weeks ago the female co-anchor of our morning CBS station KMOV-TV has been wearing glasses for the first time. I even checked her past bio and before now she has never been seen wearing glasses. her name is Marissa Hollowed. So since she never said anything about why she is now wearing glasses I don't know if she normally wears contacts and maybe had an issue with her contacts or if she recently got an increase causing her to need glasses to see the prompter or if she maybe only recently was prescribed glasses. Her glasses don't appear to be even have a slight cut-in so they must be rather weak.

Anyway just curious how many other cities have young women anchors wearing glasses these days. It seems like the female national news anchors are being seen wearing their glasses more and more often. So if your city or town has attractive young women anchors wearing glasses please post the city, the station and the time she is on air.

Before she took the last two days this week on holiday, Robin Meade left a speccy memory (and set of caps on tvnewscaps). After 2 weeks of being totally bare-eyed, she wore her spex for all but a few minutes of her show. Not only that, but she began the broadcast wearing her old (original) frames, but then she switched spex, so the caps have her wearing 2 different pairs that day. And her side-kick, Jennifer Westhoven also sported her spex a bit as the week went on.

Soundmanpt, Thanks for your posting regarding TMZ about the pretty blonde lady in the aviator glasses. I noticed right away the glasses were likely a prescription as I noticed a significant bend in the images through the lenses. You are probably right that it is a minus prescription. And yes, after watching several episodes now, I do see her contributing more on the show (but perhaps a lot of these people also contribute behind the scenes and off camera as well). But what surprises me is my difficulties finding out her name, especially when someone is at "celebrity" status, so to speak. In this day of Internet and information, I seem to be coming up blank on my Google searches in terms of making a positive identification on her name.

Soundmanpt 07 Feb 2018, 10:47


I have been watching TMZ for several years now they have always had several young attractive glasses wearing young ladies on their. I know exactly the young lady you're asking about. When she first joined the newsroom she wasn't wearing glasses at all. Then one night I was pleasantly surprised to see here wearing glasses for the first time. For a while after that it was kind of hit ad miss. Some nights she wore her glasses and some nights she didn't. At first because they are so big I thought her glasses were fake but she does contribute to the show and her glasses definitely are prescription. They appear to minimize things so i'm guessing that she is nearsighted. More recently she is mostly seen wearing her glasses. But occasionally you will see her without her glasses. I would also love to know more about her.

rkcity 72 07 Feb 2018, 05:38

I have never really watched TMZ When It's On before, but I am now tuning in more since I accidentally noticed the blonde haired woman on the newsroom cast with the clear aviator glasses (she often has been on the lower right hand of the screen. Also see Hopefully I got the link right.) To me, about the hottest sighting is a pretty woman in aviator glasses, especially a blonde. I am also seeing some of the other female cast members in aviators on some show as well. Anyway, does anyone know the blonde lady's name? I would like to Google search more photos of her. She hasn't seemed to really say anything on the show on the episodes I've seen, but she is the reason I watch TMZ's 1/2 hour format.

Lv2c4i 02 Feb 2018, 12:32

No sooner had I observed that Robin Meade was wearing the same old frames, than she shows up this past Tuesday with new frames. They are quite similar to her previous plastic frames but look to be metal and have almost a modified semi-rimless look. She had them off and on on Tuesday, another day she was holding them in her hand, and a couple of days they were nowhere in evidence. The eagle-eyed capper/poster on tvnewcaps spotted the new frames.

Off and on and ... This past weekend, Paula Faris had her spex on the desk both Saturday and Sunday, and there on the desk they stayed. Meanwhile Erica Hill is wearing her glasses somewhat more regularly on her HLN midday news show but either wears them or not the whole day. And Robin Meade is all over in her wearing patterns. Sometimes she wears them not at all, lately she's often worn them for a few minutes in segments of the show that recur every 30 or 60 minutes, and on Friday she wore them for much, but not all, of the show. But Robin wears her original pair of spex rather than any of the several newer frames she's shown over the months on FBk.

Well it seems that Paula Faris isn't wearing wearing her glasses anymore on air. In fact today her glasses were nowhere in sight. So it mkaes me wonder if she has switched to wearing contacts and if it was her decision or the station that has her no longer wearing glasses? She didn't seem to mind wearing glasses when she first went on air wearing them. It really makes me think that someone had talk with her about her glasses.

Is their anyway to send her an e-mail? Maybe if enough of us sent her e-mails telling her how nice she looked wearing glasses she might be back wearing them.

Any signs of Dan Harris of GMA wearing his glasses on air?

Soundmanpt 13 Jan 2018, 12:07

I woke up enough this morning to turn on Good Morning America and sadly Paula Faris wasn't wearing her glasses again. She has then right in front of her at first but it seemed like after every commercial break her glasses were in a different spot when they came back on. So she must put them on to see something during the breaks and takes them off right before they go live again. Some one at the show must be making her reading material in larger print so she is able to read it without her glasses. Since she first started wearing her glasses on air as her eyes should have continues adjusting to her glasses the more she wore them. in other words she should be needing her glasses more now than when she first started wearing them because her eyes should much more adjusted to them. But she seems like she now needs them less than before and the only way that could happen is if her reading material is in larger print now. She keeps her glasses close by in case maybe something is handed to her that might be breaking news that just came in an no one was able to retype it in a larger font for her.

I overslept on Saturday so I completely missed Good Morning America. I did wake up slightly before it came on Sunday and was a bit disappointed that Paula Faris wasn't wearing her glasses. She of course did have then on the desk in front of her right hand. I noticed when they came back from a commercial break that she was just putting her glasses down. So I assume she must have had them on while they were away but quickly took them off as the were coming back on. So I wonder why she wears her glasses most times when she is on the air but every once in a while she leaves them off? I'm assuming that her prescription must be pretty weak if she is still able to read small print without her glasses. Or is it possible that she maybe gets her script printed in large enough letters that she can get by without her glasses? But when it copy is in normal size print she needs her glasses to see it? I guess we will never know?

Looks like Ginger Zee has some new frames. On her FBk page she's posted a couple of reports on the recent weather (very wintry) in the eastern U.S. wearing them. One, shot at her home, shows clearly the frames are blue. In another perhaps due to poor lighting it is hard to tell the color--could be the blue frames or another frame, same shape, but more of a grayish color.

Paula Faris also was substitute cohost all this past week long on Good Morning America (regular hosts were on holiday). Her glasses were on the desk but she never put them on. Now on the weekend, they are, as soundmanpt noted, 'back where they belong.'

On Bloomberg, Julie Hyman was holiday host for the late afternoon "What did you miss" show and she was sporting her spex at least several of the days.

Soundmanpt 30 Dec 2017, 09:30

Happy to report that Paula Faris of "Good Morning America Weekends" was wearing her glasses again this morning. She had them during the whole show. The only time she didn't have her glasses on was during a pre taped segment where the whole anchor team was in a baking competition. But even then she had her glasses in her hair on top of head so they would handy if she needed them.

Interesting that ever since she started wearing glasses on air they never show a close up of her anymore. In the past before she ware glasses they would often do a close when either of the anchors was doing a report. Not the camera just stay showing both of them.

Also in past weeks right after she started wearing her glasses at the very end of the show she was taking her glasses off. Only for the final goodbyes. Today she left her glasses on for the goodbyes. Maybe shes getting more comfortable about wearing her glasses.

Someone said that she stated that she's farsighted. What I find odd is that when she is doing a report she seems to reading from a teleprompter and not reading form a script on her desk. I wonder if her eyes have adjusted to seeing distances with her glasses or if she is wearing bifocals or progressives or if her glasses are just weak enough that her glasses don't bother her distance vision that much?

Robin Meade has been playing peek-a-boo with her spex practically everyday recently (check caps on tvnewscaps). They are off and on at various times during the HLN Morning Express show. So far she has only worn the same pair of glasses that she wore some years back when she first appeared on the air with her spex. No on-the-air sign of the 3 or 4 other pairs she has modeled on Facebook at various times.

And, it looked like Paula Faris did have her spex on the desk alongside of her this morning. Maybe they are not gone for good? Meanwhile, Ginger Zee does wear her glasses almost every morning in a preview video posted on the GMA website. No telling where they end up when she goes on the air?

Nice to see Robin wearing her glasses again. She seemed to have gotten away from wearing them on air. I'm glad when she asked her counterpart "Glasses on or off" that he quickly replied "Glasses on" She seemed happy with putting them back on. Maybe she will start wearing her glasses more often if she sees that everyone likes seeing her wearing glasses. I understand when some of the young lady reporters and anchors are never seen wearing glasses and wear contacts constantly on air so no one knows they wear glasses. But Robin has worn her glasses often enough that her audience knows if she isn't wearing her glasses she is wearing contacts so I think she actually prefers wearing her glasses rather than contacts so she should just go full time glasses and be done with it.

Thank you, Speximan, for the Robin Meade caps.

Iwas watching the news this morning, to both catch the latest happenings and as well, by clicking around to the various channels, to see if any of the newswomen were wearing their glasses today (again, still or anew!).

When I first looked in on Robin on HLN, she had her glasses on! Figured this would be a great day! Such sightings are somewhat rare of late.

A few minutes later I looked at HLN again and she was bare-eyed! Sigh, too bad, Oh, well. Wondered if the spex were there on her desk? But could not tell.

Then, just a few minutes later, I came back to HLN as a bare-eyed Robin grabbed her spex and talking to one of her coanchors, she asked, "Glasses off or on?" as she put them on.

He quickly and enthusiastically responded, "Glasses on." And she replied, "Good. Now I'll be able to see." (I'd noticed her sorta straining when she had them off).

I then had to leave but suspect she wore them the rest of the day?

And tomorrow?

She indicated that she is wearing the spex due to a recent concussion/accident--also indicated that she will be wearing her glasses "forever." One can hope, tho also hope her healing goes on till she's all well.

While we wait for Robin Meade to sport her spex, her side-kick, Jennifer Westhoven, continues to switch from bare to bespectacled even in the course of one day. Check TvNewCaps for 10/31 and you'll see that today she wore, first, a pair of red spex that looked quite good, then, the next time she was on-the-air, she had her "regular" glasses, and then she ended up bare-eyed.

Eyewear update:

HNN's Jennifer Westhoven has been wearing her glasses every day for nearly 2 weeks now during some of her Morning Express reports. Almost every day she also is bare-eyed for other of those 3-4 minute reports. About 3 weeks ago, she wore one pair of glasses for one report and in another that same day, she was wearing different frames.

Kelly Ripa has not worn her spex much recently. They are there on the desk beside her, but they have tended to stay on the desk the past week or so.

CNBC's Kelly Evans sported her spex for about a week, then was bare-eyed for a few days. Them glorious glasses reappeared yesterday so perhaps she'll be an on and off wearer.

Kansas City's NBC Gina Bullard returned bare-eyed after her eye surgery so suspect her eyewear is permanently in the past--least till she needs readers years down the road.

ABC's Ginger Zee has been posting video previews of the day's Good Morning America FBk site and she often wears her glasses in those previews, but when she's on the air, she has been bare-eyed.

Happened across Lauren Jiggetts on Chicago's WGN morning news earlier this week. And she was wearing glasses. Her FBk (or Twitter) suggested that she'd scratched her cornea and so was sporting the spex till her eye healed. IMHO, Lauren is very attractive without glasses, but also striking with her spex--good choice of frames for her face and her role. While I'm glad her eye healed, she was back to bare-eyed the next day.

Dr. Ashton was again bespectacled this morning on Good Morning America. The main host made a one-word comment, "Glasses." and that was the end of it. But, at least now, there is a video clip on the GMA website--her piece was commenting on Elton John and a mystery illness (an infection from travel) that caused him to alter his concert/touring schedule.

newswatcher 23 Apr 2017, 16:49

There have actually been a lot of sightings, particularly for those that watch American news. Here I include not only news presenters but also actresses appearing on cable news in the current activist/politically charged environment.

During the week approaching the inaugural, both Debra Messing and Patricia Arquette appeared on political news shows, probably on MSNBC. Both are clearly hyperopic and presbyopic and wore their glasses continuously, discussing their upcoming appearance in the women's marches.

Another actress, Marisa Tomei, posted a photo of herself in glasses in her Twitter feed, indicating her march plans as well. She is also likely both presbyopic and hyperopic.

Because NYC has often been in the news (both because of the president's home and because of the various protests), Julie Banderas has provided news packages from the Fox NYC newsroom to Fox affiliates nationwide. She is bespectacled occasionally or sometimes.

During Charlie Rose's recent absence for surgery during February, various guest hosts filled in for him. Allison Stewart subbed twice, both times in glasses. She is nearsighted but apparently presbyopia hasn't yet set in. In the past decade she wore contact lenses while anchoring. Gillian Tett sat in for Charlie as well. She just began wearing glasses quite recently and I would guess she is presbyopic with very mild hyperopia. Maybe not the greatest sight, but she always appears on TV with glasses now.

Now, some have gone the other way, first wearing glasses at least intermittently, no longer now.

Last year during the election campaign, Nia-Malika Henderson of CNN wore her glasses at least some of the time during regular studio appearances, but I haven't seen them lately. She is likely hyperopic, maybe presbyopic as well. Perhaps the glasses are now on the table behind her laptop while she is on the air, or she is now in contact lenses.

While on Bloomberg TV Stephanie Ruhle used to wear her glasses when she needed them to read, but took them off otherwise. She is now on MSNBC and they are gone. She probably in contact lenses now. Stephanie is most likely hyperopic, maybe presbyopic as well. With her rather small beady eyes and smallish, wrinkle-prone face, she actually might look much better in her plus glasses, even to a general audience watching TV, but I doubt she would consider going in that direction.

BBC presenter Katty Kay first appeared in glasses a new years ago, hyperopic and presbyopic, but she seemed to quit them and go to contact lenses soon after. Quite honestly she is looking older and more weathered, and glasses would actually enhance her appearance at this point.

More recently the syndicated series The Doctors seems to have a new female doctor, Jennifer Berman, a glasses-wearing urologist, and she appears to be hyperopic and presbyopic.

she was speaking about some of the health considerations of the growing number of states that have legalized recreational use of marijuana.

I did notice that when she reappeared on Good Morning America yesterday, she was bare-eyed. So, when (if ever) will the spex reappear? However, on either Twitter or FBk, she did post a pik labeled something like "first glasses ever..."

So, happy hunting and thanks for the piks and caps you do post.

Monday, Dr. Jennifer Ashton, ABC's Good Morning America medical consultant, appeared wearing glasses--for the first time ever, I believe. Caps may appear?

And, in her role as expert, that may be the "look" she was after.

So the alt-right “journalist” Milo Yiannopoulos is in the news due to some controversial (to put it mildly) statements. Unrelated to all that, I happened to stumble upon an article where he admits to having terrible eyesight, but he doesn’t regularly wear glasses. Then I found this video where he attempts to put in contact lenses, but can’t go through with it. In the video, he states that his prescription is -6.00! He briefly puts on his glasses, which do look quite strong. You can also see the strong prescription in an old picture (third link). Anyway, I just found it very surprising that he goes around uncorrected most of the time with that level of myopia.

Wearing the wardrobe as the week goes on: so, it looks like Maria Shriver is wearing a third pair from her eyewear wardrobe this morning, and this one is the most flattering for her imho.

On Monday and Tuesday she wore a "wayfarer" style frame in the currently fashionable gray coloring; yesterday, it was the same frame shape but solid black--and comments about the glare that were noted previously continue to be an issue.

Today, she is wearing a softer, more rounded frame. It looks to be black and perhaps because of the slightly smaller lenses, the glare is a bit lessened.

Seems both her working her way thru her eyewear wardrobe and the glare problems offer an excellent opportunity for a "report" on current eyewear styles and choices.

Tracy Strahan, a reporter on the New York city NBC station has been wearing her spex for a few days now. On her FBk page she mentions telling why she's wearing them as having been revealed on the weekend show. Anyone catch her explanation? I wonder if she's resting from contacts in preparation for eye surgery? Or is there another reason?

Lv2c4i 07 Feb 2017, 05:12

On the NBC TODAY show, Maria Shriver is this week's substitute and she is sporting her spex. Unfortunately, the glasses she's chosen present a couple of problems. First, they glare and reflect in the TV studio lighting. She needs some sort of anti-glare treatment. Then, the frames themselves are, while trendily stylish, perhaps not the most flattering choice for her. Thus, her spexy appearing tends to be less than wonderful and not a "good message" about the attractiveness that glasses can offer--the glamor of geekiness.

I love how Cupp looks in her glasses but they are so weak. They must be a security blanket. She might also be along the lines of Jenny McCarthy and Sarah Palin that the glasses are used as a kind of prop to add more gravitas to her image.

Soundmanpt 15 Jan 2017, 10:52

No name

I have noticed also that S.E. Cupp's glasses seem to be either weak or no more than mild in prescription. But reading a little bit about her in an interview back in 2006 she seemed to like being somewhat anonymous. That is why she uses the S.E. as part of her name instead of her actual name of Sara Elizabeth. She said at first before she was on TV it was great because people didn't even know if she was a man or woman. If you notice there are very few pictures of her without glasses which seems very strange since she is a very attractive woman. My guess is she uses her glasses as a way of sort of a security blanket.

One cap kinda looks like she is asking others on the set "how do they look?"

However, to me it seems as if she puts on, not the new glasses that she wears on her FBk page, but her older spex. Her new ones seem to be grayish and somewhat translucent, while the frames she wears in the caps from yesterday look darker and solid colored. Hmmm?? Regardless, she looks great in her seldom-seen spex.

After taking a closer look (could be time for me to upgrade my readers) what I think I am actually seeing through her left lens is some strands of her hair just behind her lens making it appear to be cut-in. I'm not good with computers but I did mange to google some pictures of Finola Huges and as well as a couple of Kathleen Kane and your right without glasses they could be very well be twin sisters. In fact i found 2 pictures of Miss Hughes both without glasses and one seems to be more recent and they other appears to be a few years back and she's not bad looking now but she was a real stunner back then.

For the most part, she only wore glasses when reading things, either written notes or a TelePrompter. Perhaps she may be somewhat nearsighted now (or shortsighted in more ways than one).

Now try comparing a picture of her sans glasses with a picture of actress Finola Hughes. Separated at birth, perhaps? :)

I'm looking at Miss Kane's glasses and based on her left lens of her glasses she appears be be considerably nearsighted, nit farsighted.

I tried to google her her hoping to find even more pictures of the lovely young lady but all I was able to find was a picture of her without glasses. Of course every bit as beautiful without her glasses. In reviewing her pictures nor only do they all seem to show her wearing the same glasses but they appear to be on the weak side as well. From what i could see of her lenses they look to be maybe -1.25 or -1.50. So I wonder if she maybe only recently started wearing glasses? Does anyone know anymore details about this young lady?

Maurice 10 Jun 2016, 18:35

OK--it appears that Donald Trump may start wearing glasses to better see the teleprompters he is now using. Trump is the man who trashed Rick Perry for wearing glasses and Jeb Bush for wearing contacts.

Landon 06 Jun 2016, 19:57

Soundmanpt, actually it's more likely that she moves to contacts soon as her need for correction increases. People get excited about news anchors like Lara Spencer or Stephanie Ruhle developing hyperopia (probably with presbyopia) in their late thirties to mid-forties, but that usually translates into full-time need. Which means, they ditch the glasses and get contacts.

On the other hand, if they become presbyopic somewhat later in their forties, it's less likely that they will need distance correction so soon, and they are more likely to stick with reading glasses. So we get more sightings that way.

Newshound 06 Jun 2016, 19:53

Thanks "Speximann" for those pictures of Lara Spencer wearing glasses. I was a bit surprised that her glasses are stronger that what I would have guessed since she only recently was seen wearing glasses while on air and only very seldom at that. Her eyes are clearly magnified considerably with her glasses on. Based on that I would have to think we will be seeing her with glasses on more and more as time goes on.

Very interesting timing of your posting a picture of Robin Meade wearing her glasses. I say that because like 2 days ago I happened to turn on HLN and Robin was on but not wearing glasses, but it did make me wonder if she ever wears her glasses anymore? I remember when how she came to wearing them in the first place a few years ago. She apparently had had lasik several years before, but her eyes were again becoming myopic and she started wearing contacts so she could read the teleprompter. But according to her the night before as she was was putting things in her bag for work the next morning she apparently forgot to put her contacts in her bag. I assume she wore her glasses on her way to the studio and then when she was in makeup and went to put on her contacts she found that she didn't have them in her bag. She had no other choice but to wear her glasses on the air something that she had never done before. As I recall she got so much positive attention about her wearing glasses that she then wore them every so often for a while. But I have not paid any attention or seen anything as to weather she is still wearing her glasses from time to time or not. It could be that she even went back and had a "touch-up" which is redoing the lasik again.

In the past couple of weeks, frame wardrobe maven and newsreader, Betty Liu (Bloomberg) has been changing her preferred frame style from the wayfarer-style frames (with the very angular and squarish features) to more cat-eyed styles. As with her wayfarer wardrobe, she has a rainbow array of colors which she coordinates with other components of her wardrobe. Is her choice heralding a change in the more popular and widely worn frame style for fashionable females?

Or who is it that is the style trailblazer for women's eyewear?

A bare-eyed Betty Liu hosted her Bloomberg show on Monday but she was back in her spex yesterday. While the glasses are always great, she was also attractive bare-eyed. Meanwhile, her glasses wardrobe has recently focused on the rainbow of colors, but basically the same bold plastic frame style, usually color-coordinated with the rest of her outfit. Suspect she'd also look nice in different frame styles.

Sadly unless one lives near the New York area we aren't able to see Miss Scotto. If she is looking down to read things with her glasses on that doesn't sound like she is wearing progressives but more likely single vision glasses. If they were bifocals or progressives she would more likely be holding her head up and only her eyes would be looking down.

Mr Cockeyed 06 Apr 2016, 06:36

this morning on Fox 5 NY Rosanna Scotto was wearing glasses, which is very rare. They for sure we're progressive, as every time she looked close her head and eyes looked down. They looked mild plus progressives

Happy to report that Erica Hill was again on the Saturday morning news show on NBC. It sure seems like she has made the decision to only be seen wearing glasses from now on. I notice that the girls often seem to get into things outside more physical. It will be interesting too see if she takes her her glasses off then if there is any danger of her glasses getting broken or just in the way. She looks great wearing glasses and this may open the door for even more on air newscasters to start wearing glasses instead of contacts.

I didn't watch Big Brother all that much but around the time your referring there happened to be a very pretty blonde girl on the show and she wore glasses nearly full time except during some of the competions which I assume she was able to see well without her glasses to do. I don't think she wore contacts because all other times she was wearing her glasses. Anyway one episode of the show i was a little surprised to see Julie Chen wearing glasses whenever they went to her she did comment about her wearing glasses by appologizing Her glasses appeared to have a rather decent prescription so i can only assume that when it was time to do the show she was unable to wear her contacts. Like you sine the other co hosts of the Talk Show don't seem to have any problem wearing glasses when needed you have to assume that Julie just doesn't want to be seen wearing glasses. We call that vanity.

Lv2c4i 26 Mar 2016, 05:24

Julie Chen is sorta-celeb, sorta-newsperson (more entertainment now than back when she got her start). I stumbled across a couple of photos of her in glasses in her gig as host of the USA version of Big Brother--back many months ago. Never saw any caps or word of her appearance at that time.

However, her never wearing her spex as she hosts "The Talk" when several of her cohosts have at time worn their glasses, perhaps suggests that it is her own choice to not wear the glasses--as was suggested in the case of Kerry Barret. Ironically, on the Talk all the four women hosts appeared once without any make-up,but at least Julie seems to avoid appearing in glasses.

Does anyone recall any newslady speaking of the "rules" or pressures surrounding being bespectacled on the air?

 25 Mar 2016, 19:56

Erica Hill looks great wearing her glasses. It was utterly awesome to see Milissa Rehberger wearing her glasses on tonight's New Brief on "Hard Ball". She is beautiful.

Soundmanpt 25 Mar 2016, 12:10

Mr. Cockeyed

it could just be that Kerry Barret doesn't want to be seen wearing glasses so she wears contacts. I think now most networks are okay with their female newscasters wearing glasses if they prefer to. My local market I see several of the reports sometimes they wear their glasses but more often wear contacts. Most of them have their e-mail showing as they are doing a report so I have made a point to give a positive comment whenever I have seen one of them wearing glasses for the first time on air. Several have replied back to be thanking me for my complement.

Mr Cockeyed 25 Mar 2016, 11:05

NYC 0^0

I've been watching Kerry Barrett also, and I agree she is probably very nearsighted, but unlike Erica Hill, doesn't wear glasses only contacts. I must admit she has beautiful blue eyes, even though a bit owly You know there is a unwritten law that networks frown on women wearing glasses, but now have relaxed the rule some what.

Years ago I knew a anchor lady who I know, wore something like minus nines, and she had to take off, while she tended to a infection. Guys could wear glasses, women wore contacts.

Being from NY, I'm sure you have seen Juliet Huddy wearing glasses, then whip them off. She actually looks very stylish in her mild progressive glasses,

NYC O^O 25 Mar 2016, 05:14

All week, Kerry Barrett was the Today In New York substitute anchor, filling in for vacationing Darlene Rodriguez who occasionally is on the air with glasses. On close ups Kerry's myopic bulging blue eyes were very noticeable and the rims of blue soft contacts could easily be seen.

My farsighted wife commented again about her owl like eyes.

At one point, she was caught on camera reading something on her desk with her head bent down very close to what she was reading, another myopic habit.

I watched the morning news on NBC mostly just to see if Erica Hill was again wearing her glasses. I was not disappointed because she was in fact wearing her glasses again. So in the past few weeks she has done the weekend news wearing glasses and even subbed for the evening news as well and was wearing glasses. It sure appears that she has decided to only wear her glasses these day and has stopped wearing contacts. I only hope that she maybe wearing her glasses because when your about to get lasik you can't wear your glasses for several weeks before.

 18 Mar 2016, 17:00

It was nice to see Erica Hill doing her usual great reporting while also wearing her glasses on NBC News last night. Sadly, however, Milissa Rehberger was 0 for 3 on wearing her glasses during the news brief on "Hard Ball" this week.

Sure enough, Kerry had pale bright blue eyes with a noticeable myopic bulge. Thanks to the image quaulity of HD television, I was able to detect the rims of soft contact lenses in Kerry's beautiful myopic eyes. Hope she will wear her glasses on the air in the near future.

Just a couple weeks ago I was watching the late local news and and one of young female reports that is more than a little bit attractive seemed to be having some sort of problem doing a news report from the street. She really stumbled badly through her report and that was not like her at all because she never seemed to make any kind of mistake reading the news in studio or out reporting. A couple nights later they switched to her for a news report and I was pleasantly surprised to she her wearing glasses. Of course no mention about her glasses but she did her report flawlessly. They always show an e-mail address for the reporters so the next day I sent her an e-mail hoping to give her a some self confidence that she might make her glasses a regular thing. I told her I had noticed that she seemed to have some difficulty when she as doing her live report that one night and she seemed to be having problems reading from her I-Pad. Of course I told her how nice she looked wearing her glasses and that they really suited her which was also true. I really didn't expect a reply from her but 2 days later I got a reply from her thanking me for complementing her on her glasses. She said that she was noticing that driving at night was becoming more difficult because she couldn't see road signs very well. Her camera man told her that she probably needed glasses. She went and did get glasses and at first she didn't think her glasses were very strong but she was finding herself needing them more and more. So she wouldn't have to wear glasses on the iar they moved the prompter closer to her so she was able to see it without her glasses. But that night with bad lighting and the small print on her I-Pad she just couldn't see it and she said she really pretty much did her report based on what she remembered. She said I could expect to see her wearing glasses when she out doing reports at night. But so far she hopes to be able to not need her glasses while in the studio. She thanked me for being a loyal viewer.

I've noticed both Kirsten Powers from fox and Alysin Camerota from CNN with readers on their desk but haven't been able to catch either of them wearing them. Looks like presbyopia is starting to get to them but vanity is keeping us from seeing them in their glasses.

I enjoy watching Stephanie Ruhle in hers from time to time. She started wearing them this year on camera at 39. I wonder how long it is till she is full-time?

Don't think Erica Hill is getting Lasik. She tweeted she just got new glasses last week. It is unusual for her to wear 5 days in a row.

With the exception of Fox, most TV news outlets seem not to care about their talent wearing glasses. At NBC, Savannah Guthrie wears them a few days a month, as does Erica. At CNN, Carol Costello, Ashleigh Banfield and S.E.Cupp wear full-time.

Before Sarah Palin emerged on the USA national scene as a political personality, she had been featured here as a GWG. And, on a recent link from YAHOO news (as I recall), she was shown wearing 4 or 5 different frames and styles. One was a variation of the rimless spex she made famous (and popular) during her candidacy a few years back, but she also had various dark and colored plastic and metal frames. One might wonder about how vast is her current spectacle wardrobe.

At 7a.m., Stephanie Ruhle is on with her spex set alongside her on the desk for occasional glancing. Seems they may be as much for seeing a distant prompter as for the more common reading of fine print. mNot sure on that but the spex which seem overly large laying on the desk actually look pretty good perched on her face.

She has worn spex often enough that the "theme/title" video shown to start her mid-afternoon (USA)show features a close-up shot of her in those wire framed glasses that Speximan capped. Today however, she was wearing different (maybe new) frames. They are plastic and a brownish horn-rimmed color with perhaps more than brown and yellowish colors. She looks very nice in either pair of frames. Wonder if her glasses will be making more regular appearances or be very now-and-again as in the past?

Melyssa 22 Sep 2015, 04:51

I saw Kait Parker wearing glasses last Sunday and this Sunday, but at no other time in the years she has been on the Weather Channel. Maybe she was out partying on Saturday night and couldn't deal with contact lenses, knowing also that the Weather Channel has dopey, repetitive reality shows after 10:00 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays so she would be on the air a very short time.

Meego 21 Sep 2015, 19:31


Kait in specs is actually quite frequent, but not a hard and fast rule. She often is on air in the mornings west coast time.

I think she represents a trend of younger women willing to appear on air in glasses, at least sometimes or occasionally. It does vary depending on the channel, though.

Even the pictures that "Speximann" posted all the pictures clearly show cut-in and the 2nd and 3rd where you cane see through her left lens look closely at her hair line through her lens and you can really tell by that.

Kait Parker has two sets of caps currently posted on She is on the "Weather Channel". In the more recent set, she is wearing glasses--maybe for a first time? The five caps of her with the glasses all have her with somewhat peculiar expressions on her face--almost as if she is bemused (or mildly disgusted?) at wearing the glasses. Makes me wonder if there was some conversation between her and another anchor about the new (?) spex.

It also is evidence that a smiling face invariably is more attractive than a scowling or even unemotional expression. This is borne out on Tweeted #newglasses photos. If the wearer is smiling, she always is more attractive than those angry or otherwise unhappy with their new eyewear and/or vision needs.

I recall her being asked by a juror about her glasses and she said that she never thought she needed glasses until she tried on a girlfriend's glasses and found that she could see so much better with her glasses. That was when she got glasses she said. I could tell even during the trial that her glasses were real. I would say probably -2.25 / -2.50 would be about right considering she only got her first glasses in 2010 and the trial mainly took place in 2013. So she could have easily had at least one increase in that time.

Recently she was auctioning off her glasses for some charity. You have to assume she got new glasses so she didn't her old ones anymore.

Betty in bold blue this morning. But yesterday's spex show the import of both shape and color in frame selection. She was wearing cat-eye frames but in a purple color that looked very nice. IMHO, the cat-eye frames are among the most flattering on her and adding the color to the darker (black) ones she worn before kept her atop the daily delights of who is wearing what for OO.

After a week away on vacation, Betty Liu returned this week with a variety of eyewear options. Some days her spex were no where in sight. One day she had a pair (a bright almost neon frame) alongside her arm on the desk, but that she never put on, and she ended the week in her pair of dark cateyes.

One of her fellow anchor ladies also had a pair of spex onhand for her midmorning on-the-air stint, a large bold horned-rimmed style pair it looked like, but while I was watching, while she waved them and held them, she never put 'em on.

I had a friend who would vote for a pretty woman even if she said exactly what the Whammy did on "Press Your Luck" back in 1984 -- "If elected, I will raise your taxes!" At that point, the Whammy would get a pie in the face. Sarah Pain deserves that and more, and my former friend probably voted for her when she ran for VP, even with his being a Democrat. (That is not why he is a former friend; I stopped dealing with him long before she came along.)

Case in point: Jon Runyan played a number of years for the Philadelphia Eagles, and was not bad to look at. Upon retiring from the NFL he went into politics and won a House seat to represent his district from southern N.J. Had I lived there I would not have voted for him a second time, as 95% of the time he voted opposite of what I would have wanted.

Even though I am not in the territory of the two women running for that state spot, if I were, I would have to decide which was the lesser of two evils.

Cat-eye fans? Check out Betty Liu today. She's chosen a dark cat-eyed frame that is very attractive on her.

Interestingly, on Friday she had chosen a bold (bright) teal or turquoise frame. It was, imho, striking from a distance, but a bit distracting up close. She (or her producers or whoever) perhaps thought likewise as, I noted that later in the broadcast she was holding the spex in her hand--never put 'em down--but was no longer wearing them. The color was so bold that even in her hand, you could easily see the spex.

On her Bloomberg show yesterday, Betty Liu was reporting a story that included WarbyParker (highly valued and may be approaching an IPO) and she referred to her "contribution" to their success via her extensive eyewear wardrobe. They then showed a screen of her in four different frames--just the "tip of the iceberg" as OO's know. Then they showed pix of a couple of boxes/drawers of many jumbled frames that seemed to be like from a 'goodwill' collection site, but several seemed familiar--they were perhaps her complete collection of spex?

Interesting thing by Erica Hill on the morning news show. It's a 1 1/2 hour show, and they first came on she wasn't wearing glasses. The first segment went about 10 minutes, broke for a commercial, and when they came back she was wearing them. At first thought they had recorded the opening segment earlier, but she was wearing the same dress and it's highly unlikely she would change during a commercial break. She probably took out her contacts and switched, as her prescription is such she couldn't have faked that first segment.

Katy Linendoll, the resident NBC tekkie geek, has a wonderful eyewear wardrobe. For the last few weeks, she's been wearing one of her apparent favorites, and elongated small cateye type. White with a black overlay, very attractive. But today, she outdid herself. Nearly all of her collection consists of cateye types, but this one was for real, black frame front with metal temples and on each end of the frame front was a real cateye point, slightly upswept, and a small one immediately below. Unfortunately they hustled her through the segment with no good closeups and she is so animated it was like trying to watch a moving target.

She's apparently a low minus with a pretty good amount of cyl which may be why she doesn't wear contacts (yea!) but between plastic frames and her animation it's hard to tell for sure.

Thanks for the caps of Liz Dueweke. She is very attractive and her spex add to the beauty. Maybe we'll see more of her as the melancholy countdown to surgery continues? And, her situation and spexy appearance raise a "philosophical" question for our community, a matter of tastes.

Would we prefer 'never' or 'never again'? I suspect Ms. Dueweke rarely (or never) wore her glasses prior to the prepping for surgery? Now we get to enjoy her spexy looks however briefly, then 'never again'. (Well, maybe someday she'll need reading glasses).

A similar set of countdown caps occurred with Norah O'Donell a few months back--and now never again. On the other end of the eyewear continuum we find Betty Liu who not only began wearing glasses everyday, but has an amazing wardrobe of spex to share with us all. And, in between, we have women like Erica Hill and Savannah Guthrie (among others, no doubt) who sport their spex on camera every now and again.

So, is a pre-surgical sighting "worth" the prospect of then "never again"?

Enjoying Erica Hill's new spex. Thanks for the heads-up. Her frame style shows evolution of frame fashion: basic frame is close to "nerd" shape tho softened a bit. Also not black but a brownish (almost wood-colored). And the temples look to be thin and metal rather than the wide plastic.

Metal frames seem to be evolving to more and more "lacy"/scroll-worked temples, while plastic frames are getting more multi-colored and ornate as well.

Re: Lauren's glasses on The Apprentice - to Carrie, et al.

I have the same frame which I bought several years ago for my other half, and meant to get it reglazed, but we have never got around to it, so if anyone wants to buy this style of frame, I'd be more than happy to sell it.

Savannah Guthrie back in specs today. Good to see, been a long time.

Carrie 22 Nov 2014, 12:40

This week on The Apprentice Lauren was wearing glasses some of the time like last week. Quite unusual looking frames with the top and bottom of the frame becoming hinges at the top and bottom corner of the lenses leaving the outer edge of the lenses exposed. The 2 separate parts of the frame forming a long V shape as the come together in the part that goes over the ear. She must usually wear contacts as she seemed to have a moderate minus prescription.

Bianca also wore glasses briefly.

My favourite candidate, Katie, also wore her glasses for a while. She appears to have a mild plus prescription and probably some astigmatism as she has worn her glasses for close up and distances.

I haven't seen the gorgeous Rosin wear glasses yet and I would probably faint if she did but she has amazing eyes.

Go to this link to see what they look like (none of the ones I've mentioned above are wearing glasses in their photo and only Katie is wearing glasses in their audition videos) This page also marks which candidates have been fires, so don't click if you don't want to know.

If you are in the UK you can see Lauren, Bianca and Katie all wearing their glasses by watching the episode on the BBC iPlayer. Someone told me that some other countries in Europe can use the iPlayer without the programmes being blocked and there's also a website that unblocks the blocks but I don't know if that website is legal so I'm not going to put the name of it here.

Revolver 16 Nov 2014, 16:16

That's not a lot of glasses, comparatively speaking. Check out Carla Hall (she wears them wonderfully daily) and Gayle King. Gayle has a veritable wardrobe, but unfortunately, only wears them 1 or 2 days a week.

Soundmanpt 15 Nov 2014, 09:33

Really hard to believe for anyone to have so many pairs of glasses. She must have a relative that owns an optical shop. But she also must be at someone obsessed with wearing glasses to take the time to shop for so many. But to her credit she makes her need for vision correction fun and we all enjoy it as well.

It would be a nice idea for as many as possible in here to send emails to the station she works for telling them how much we enjoy seeing her in all her different glasses. Who knows if enough at the station her about the response she is getting about her glasses others may also decide to wear glasses on air as well.

Carrie 06 Nov 2014, 17:50

Strictly Come Dancing is one of the most popular tv shows in the UK at the moment although me and Gemma don't watch it very often as it's not really our thing even though some of the female professional dancers are quite hot and 2 of this year's celebrities are Frankie from the girl band The Saturdays and the singer Pixie Lott who are both rather hot too. Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills was also one of the celebrities but got voted off at the weekend. Today on his show his Strictly dance partner Joanne Clifton took part in "Innuendo Bingo" with him. As well as being on the radio "Innuendo Bingo" is shown live on the Radio 1 website and then put on YouTube. Joanne is very pretty and to my absolute delight (and probably yours) she wears glasses throughout the whole game. I've played the video a few times now mainly because I keep laughing at the innuendos and have to take my glasses off to wipe away the laughter tears - tears in my eyes + no glasses on = can't see the video at all! I have a rather smutty sense of humour so I love this game!

Don't worry, all the innuendos are clean(ish) as Scott's show goes out at lunchtime and the BBC wouldn't do anything even slightly risky during the daytime even though Radio 1 is targeted at people my age.

Soundmanpt 06 Nov 2014, 10:47


I wonder if for many of these young ladies and being on that show if wearing glasses isn't something like a "Badge of Honor" Hillary is very attractive and she probably could easily have gotten contacts but by wearing glasses she is taken more serious.

Back to bare-eyed: after a couple of months wearing her glasses every time she was on the air, NBC's Frances Rivera is again wearing her contacts (well, I didn't hear of any surgery so am assuming she's in contacts). Jo Ling Kent, too, is again bare-eyed, but not before TVHeads posted a number of caps from Monday and Tuesday.

And Betty Liu wore one of her metal-framed pairs of glasses yesterday. Tho the style is unusual, the frames gave her a more dressy (or formal) look which coordinated well with her black dress and jewelry.

Horn-rimmed? Betty Liu wore her horn-rimmed colored frames the other day. There's a set of caps on TVHeads. Again wondering how many frames are in her current wardrobe? She continues to switch and coordinate frames according to the rest of her clothing choices.

Lv2c4i 26 Sep 2014, 04:58

Am I right? That technically "horn-rimmed" refers to frame color and material rather than shape? Horn-rimmed refers to rims (once made of actual animal horn) that are somewhat mottled and brownish? The post about Carol Costello wearing horn-rimmed spex maybe is referring to shape? Actually, I think she'd look better in frames that were not as dark as the black she's been wearing (regardless of shape) but if she did wear a more brownish frame are there caps?

Betty Liu has become one of life's little daily pleasures. Each day wondering which (and whether) glasses she'll be wearing...and discovering it when she arrives. The past 2 weeks she has been bare-eyed one day each week and then has worn a different pair of glasses pretty much each of the other 4 days, one of the variously colored plastic pairs in a couple of different shapes. She does well in coordinating her frame color with the rest of her wardrobe.

Perhaps one day we'll also see a pair of metal-rimmed frames.

Suzi Perry has put several photos on her website too

SC 08 Sep 2014, 01:53

I saw the Suzy Perry stuff too - quite a surprise. It's not a typical news programme - all outside so I guess she doesn't need an auto-cue but does use an iPad so I guess close-up is more important. There were a lack of close-ups, so apart from being plus lenses it was difficult to tell if they were single vision or progressive lenses. I guess we have to wait for Singapore GP in 2 weeks

Chris 07 Sep 2014, 14:04

Yes stunning indeed, Suzi definitely suits glasses. Apparently she's been wearing them for 12 months. I'm guessing she's always had a small amount of hyperopia but been able to accommodate sufficiently so that it wasn't really noticeable. At 44 that probably isn't the case anymore, hence the glasses.

Oscar 07 Sep 2014, 04:41

Suzi is back in glasses today at the Italian Grand Prix, looking stunning on the BBC.

Oscar 06 Sep 2014, 13:45

@ Chris - I agree, she looked at least as gorgeous in glasses as she does without them. Viewers in the UK can watch it on the BBC iPlayer. She wears them for the first hour or so of the programme. Hope we get to see them again :)

Chris 06 Sep 2014, 09:06

Thought I'd died and gone to heaven today. Suzi Perry was wearing glasses during the BBC F1 coverage this afternoon. They looked to be around +2 or maybe a little more. She looked fantastic in them. Curiously though, they disappeared around half way through. I'm looking forward to seeing if they reappear for the race tomorrow.

Pete 05 Sep 2014, 09:20

:-) Happy, seems that Betty Liu is back now, definitely with glasses forever!

Lv2c4i 03 Sep 2014, 05:20

Upon her return to CBS Morning News yesterday, Norah O'D did speak briefly of her lasik and her satisfaction/amazement at the seeing she can now do without spex. Sounds like the show will not use her experience as the basis of a story about vision and correction.

Meanwhile, Betty Liu continues to sport a variety of looks from her (apparently extensive) wardrobe of frames. And today she is joined (at least early on) by a bespectacled Olivia Stearns.

And Frances Rivera responded (via Twitter) to a question and compliment about her eyewear by saying she'd been being bothered by her contacts lately.

Revolver 28 Aug 2014, 18:21

One of the insanities about Norah having lasik is that she is 40 years old, and if she doesn't already, will very soon be needing reading glasses. But don't expect to see her wearing them, with her ultra-vanity level she won't. She'll either get mono contacts, or keep going to larger and larger fonts on the teleprompter until the inevitable happens. At which time, she'll probably opt to retire rather than be seen in any form of eyewear. Sad to say, she's not one of us.

If she had any sense at all, she would've foregone the surgery and taken a good time from her esteemed (and not vain) colleague, Gayle King, and selected a wardrobe of attractive eyewear and worn them proudly. At this point the remote is my friend, will check on CBS and if Gayle isn't wearing them that day will go to NBS...Norah isn't worth watching.

Lv2c4i 28 Aug 2014, 13:36

Somewhat sadly (tho not for her), Norah has gone ahead and had lasik. If you search for her on Facebook, you'll see a smiling post-procedure photo. There are a "ton" of comments prompted by her post and the vast majority of them note how attractive (or hot or sexy or professional) she looked wearing glasses and how they will miss seeing her in them.

Meanwhile, Betty Lui wore her blue spex today. Looks like she'll continue to go back-and-forth, but it also appears as if, unlike previously, her glasses will be making regular appearances. Or so we hope.

Revolver 28 Aug 2014, 10:39

Norah hasn't been on all week, but on Monday she did a segment on the U.S. Tennis Open and was wearing her glasses. It could have been taped before this week, although it did appear to be live. More food for speculation. Or should I say specs-ulation? (All together now, Grrroooaann!)

Pete 28 Aug 2014, 01:23

What happened again to Betty Liu, back again but again without glasses. What a pitty, was such a beauty with her glasses!

Soundmanpt 25 Aug 2014, 11:28

I notice that Norah wasn't on this morning. Makes me wonder if she is getting her lasik done today? Generally speaking I would think for best results it is best if a patient refrains from the use of contacts for longer than 1 week, however it is possible that she maybe had been wearing glasses for several weeks and only using the contacts while on air.

This week is beginning well, good "news" for OO's. Monday had both Frances Rivera on NBC early morning news and Norah O'Donnell, as noted here, both wearing glasses. This morning has Norah again being bespectacled along with MSNBC's Mika Brezinski. Mika said she dropped her "last contact lens" and while she didn't particularly like seeing herself in spex, others on the show said that they liked the look.

So, who will be next on the news?

It's 4 for 4 this week! Not only is Betty Lui wearing her glasses for the 4th day in a row, but she is in a fourth different pair of frames. Today is the currently stylish what I call "nerd" frames in a brown mottled horn-rimmed "color", she wore the same frame in both a purple and a red earlier this week (and a blue last week), as well as one day in a thinner black frame.

With this eyewear wardrobe, she likely isn't prepping for surgery to get rid of glasses. Maybe she's discovered a discount dealer or bought all 5 of Warby Parker's try-on selections?

As a financial reporter, she knows the value of a diversified fiscal portfolio and has applied that same principle to her eyewear appearance. Luvin' it, Betty!

It is totally awesome to see Savannah wearing her glasses a little more often. She always seems to have a new set of frames to wear and usually prefers the hipster style large frame glasses, which i am in love with! She also seems to have a variety of lens types also... one day its seems she has a weak prescription (maybe -2) and the next time she wears them they look flat and thick (maybe -5 or -6)... im sure just my imagination. Either way i hope she keeps amazing us with her glasses!

And, Betty Liu, on Bloomberg, wearing her glasses more regularly, today has a new pair--very nice. They are the "nerd" shape, but a nice blue color that is quite flattering with the rest of her outfit and her coloring. IMHO, a fine frame choice. Keep 'em coming, Betty.

Just discovered that financial reporter, Jo Ling Kent, has several pictures of herself in glasses on her Twitter page. She's in 2 different frames and seems to have a fairly substantial prescription.

Betty Liu was also wearing her glasses on Monday's Fox Business morning show. She was wearing a variation of the fashionable (as in popular) hipster type frames. Her last spexy appearance was in a different, but more stylish (as in artsy and designed) frames. She looked very nice in both pair, but it leads one to wonder how large of an eyewear wardrobe she has. And what she might wear next.

And TVHeads also capped CNN's Pamela Brown wearing glasses the other day.

Lv2c4i 28 Jun 2014, 08:32

Interested in comment that Norah O'Donnell is the "vainest of the vain." Interested in what prompts that assessment, tho she is very attractive, especially with her spex. I, too, caught the comments about her being overly fatigued (due to a late return from assignment) as she wore her glasses this past week. But, she also seemed to be much enjoying herself, perhaps from the giddiness that often comes with lack of sleep. And, when one smiles, whether with glasses or not, they invariably seem more attractive.

NYC O^O 26 Jun 2014, 09:26

Tne pictures of Norah in the red dress wearing the plano glasses clearly show her large myopic eyes. In the pictures of her in the dark dress wearing her myopic prescription her eyes do appear smaller indicating the fact that her myopic prescription is significant. It is nice to see the comparison.

Speximann 25 Jun 2014, 23:03

Here's to hoping she gets lots more assignments!!!!

Revolver 25 Jun 2014, 21:19

Don't hold your breath waiting for Norah to wear glasses often, let alone quite often. There was a comment from Gayle King about her being "sleep deprived" on Monday's episode, and she sure looked it, the glasses were because she had a rough night either on assignment or traveling and couldn't handle the CL's. She is the vainest of the vain, and only will wear them as a last resort.

Soundmanpt 25 Jun 2014, 12:50

It is interesting that ever since that guy was on the show from Warbly Parker Nora has been wearing her glasses quite often. Before that I don't ever recall her wearing glasses on the show.

What's odd is why she is wearing the non prescription glasses. That really makes no sense at all. It seems Charlie really approves of her wearing glasses because he said more than once how nice she looks with her glasses. Clearly off the air he must wear her glasses full time or quite a bit for him to comment on them as he did.

So now that she has come out wearing glasses I think she will even be wearing them more often as time goes by,

Norah O'Donnell also seems to have had her frames adjusted. Last week they seemed to be constantly slipping down her nose, but this a.m. they seem to be staying in place. Perhaps she will continue to sport the spex every now and again.

Also, wondering about caps from Robin last week? She was wearing an attractive outfit along with her spex--kinda black-and-white like Norah's attractive, eyewear-enhanced appearance this morning.

Norah O'Donnell is again wearing her real glasses right now on CBS This Morning.

Unlike last week's first hour of the show on May 16,she is today wearing her -4.00 something pair showing significant cut-in and power rings.

The photos last week in TV Heads only pictured her in the non prescription pair she wore in the first hour on May 16th show before she switched in the second hour of that show to the pair she is wearing today.

Soundmanpt 20 Jun 2014, 12:13

Her glasses are clearly for distance and I don't think there progressives because if you look in the lower section of her left lens you can see that rail that goes form left to right behind her and it is minimized just as the HLN square is in the upper part of her lens. I don't really think her prescription is all that much. I would say something less than -3.00. Because she had lasik generally speaking if some one again becomes nearsighted most often the prescription is not very much. That is why most places that do lasik only warranty it for a "touch-up" if your vision should get worse than -1.25.

choch 20 Jun 2014, 07:56

TGIF! Robin Meade is wearing her glasses this morning on the HLN morning show. Also, she seems to take off the glasses during the commercials and when they return to her anchoring, she is seen putting the spex back on as the camera zooms in to her. Maybe she's fixing her make-up and hair or maybe she needs bifocals and takes the spex off to read her notes?

Also, on, caps of Norah O'Donnell from Monday and Morgan Radford of Al Jazeera US is also capped in her glasses--an interesting choice of frames for her.

New York City's local news reporter, Weijia Jiang, apparently wears glasses when reporting live from a moving car doing morning traffic reports. but is then bare-eyed once she's done driving. Many myopes seem to don spex only for driving just like others (plussies) do for reading.

They are quite different from the heavy dark frames so popular these days, but they look nice on her. On her Twitter page you can also find links to some video on the Bloomberg site of her from that day. Also, looking at the times from the caps on, it looks like she began the show bare-eyed and then put her glasses on. Interesting. Wonder if there were comments about the spex?

Except for this board, I see next to no note of Norah O'Donnell in glasses, not on Facebook or Twitter. My interest is in letting her know how nice she looked--and thus encouraging her to have the confidence to wear her spex. Any ideas on how to "send" that message?

Not to get "greedy", but seeing her sister, Kelly, in glasses would be another treat.

BTW, I think Gayle King's "upset" over the glasses remark was mainly in jest--tho Charlie's admiration of Norah wearing glasses was genuine.

Norah didn't wear the WP's after that segment was over. In an earlier one they were discussing fashion trends in eyewear, and she said "we all wear glasses" referring to the cast. But due to her extreme vanity this is the first time she's ever been seen in any glasses let alone her own. The only way to describe her is the vainest of the vain, and I don't like it.

This morning CBS Morning News did a segment on Warby Parker and I wondered if the hosts would appear in spex. Well, Norah O'Donnell did wear W-P glasses the last 30 minutes of the program. When they came on with her wearing glasses, her male co-anchor spoke of how sexy teacher/librarian she looked and both commented on how attractive she looked in the glasses.

Norah commented on her having worn glasses for years, that she was "pretty blind" and that her prescription was "like minus 5". She then said her last pair of glasses had cost nearly $1000 v. the $95 price of the W-P pair she was wearing.

She wore the glasses the rest of the morning and the final comment before the show ended was repeating how good the glasses looked on her.

Maybe the spex will make an occasional reappearance. And somewhere soon I suspect there will be caps posted.

You are quite far from blind. However you do have a decent amount of astigmatisms. I think your younger sisters will find that your glasses don't work as well as they may have thought with first trying them on? It's very possible that they both may need glasses and very possible they to need plus prescriptions, but I think after they have your glasses on for a while they may soon both get headaches because of your astigmatisms. It would be near impossible that they would not only have the same CYL numbers but that the axis numbers would also be the same as you wear. But there is no harm in their trying them. They both probably need to get their eyes checked so they can get the proper glasses for their eyes though.

Monday morning and Mika back in her glasses. Some suggesting on Twitter she's wearing different frames--a softer brown rather than the severe black...and comments are varied, both positive and negative regarding the spex. As an OO (sub-group: frame fanatic), I like 'em and hope she wears them regularly if not daily.

Engelbert 15 Feb 2014, 10:19

She has fluctuated between glasses and lenses for some time now.

Aubrac 15 Feb 2014, 03:09

Just been watching Newswatch on Saturday morning BBC News and the usual presenter, Semira Ahmed, was sporting a nice pair of rectangular brown frame glasses with what looked like about -2 lenses. Have not seen her wearing glasses before so maybe a contacts wearer or possibly a newbie glasses wearer.

Last week Kate Silverton on BBC Lunchtime news had new glasses, a nice quite large squareish frame. The rimless pair she has been wearing for several weeks look like varifocals, and maybe this is a new pair of varifocals in a larger lens style. She has in the past worn many different frames but all with fairly small lenses so maybe prefers the larger lens for a bigger reading area.

Lv2c4i 13 Feb 2014, 07:21

And she's back! Mika Br. on msnbc is back in her glasses this morning. She seemed half awake as show started as if maybe she didn't have time to put in her contacts. But then, she mentioned that they (the control room people?) had said that she'd done a terrible job yesterday trying to read without wearing the glasses. And we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Surprised no one has mentioned Bob Costas' well publicized eye issues. He showed up on the first day of the Olympics wearing glasses, saying he had a minor eye infection and couldn't wear his contacts. Doctors told him it should clear up by the weekend. Well it kept getting worse and spread to both eyes, and he took last night off because he could barely see. His eyes looked painfully red and swollen, hope it's nothing too serious.

Soundmanpt 11 Feb 2014, 13:59

Mika more than likely had a contact problem that forced her to wear glasses for several days. Her commenting that she was now able to see the monitor i'm sure was true. but i'm also sure that there was no way she could see it without contacts either. So if she was trying to make it seem that she usually doesn't wear correction you can tell that her glasses are strong enough that she can see very little without them or contacts.

CNN's Carol Costello is again wearing her glasses this morning--at least as she reports from the frozen-over Atlanta streets. I suspect she'll keep them on when she does her turn as anchor at 9 a.m. She may be wearing glasses as she's somewhat stranded by the weather and traffic mayhem that she's reporting on.

Carol Costello is a longtime glasses wearer (as far as back as the last time large frames were fashionable). In her case, I think the bold black frames are flattering: they hide some of the facial signs of her aging and, as trendy, they also give her a contemporary appearance. (I do not think those same frame would be as attractive on Savannah Guthrie, for instance.)

Thanks for the heads-up on Savannah. I think the brown tortoise shell frames are a lot more attractive on her than the darker solid brown and/or black ones. Also this shape seems to suit her face very nicely. On Twitter, Savannah mentions that her frames are from Warby Parker. I hope that someone will post some caps.

BTW, Erica Hill also wore her glasses on Sunday. Hers are the darker color and I wonder if she might benefit from Savannah's frame stylist.

I stand corrected - maybe it was just the look, shape and plus glasses that made me think she was.

The lovely Kate Silverton was on Friday lunchtime news and still wearing her rimless glasses. She always used to appear in different glasses nearly every time she was on but seems to be sticking with the rimless.

I'm pretty sure they are varifocal as my wife wears plus rimless varifocals, and when Kate turns her head the top to bottom image distortion is very similar, maybe also why she sticks with them.

I agree with you, Erica Hill is to beautiful a woman to wear those heavy black rimmed glasses. U know the trend is to wear those so called "BOLD" frames starting with the B&L Wayfarer, but a more feminine frame, even in black or some other color would look great.

The other lady, Dillon Dryer is also very nearsighted, and if they all wore glasses it would be a great show

Kate Silverton seems to be ticking with her new rimless glasses which as already mentioned may be varifocals as she does seem to look through the lower half of the lens when reading news copy.

Watched Saturday Kitchen on BBC this morning and Janet Street-Porter was on. She used to wear double figure minus glasses but don't know if she has had Lasik or is in contacts. Either way to do her kitchen preparation she had to wear about +4 glasses but didn't seem to use them much for distance.

Also on the programme was comedienne Jo Brandt's daughter, she was wearing all the time a large slightly nerdy frame with a left lens of about +3 and right lens with maybe just cylinder correction.

I think we are talking about the same channel. I checked after seeing your post to see exactly what the channel is called and it is "The Jewelery Channel" I hate jewelery but I plan on switching over every now and then to see if I happen to catch either of these 2 ladies demoing their products.

have you noticed that more and commericals are featuring young women wearing what appears their own real glasses for many different products.

It's about time that they figured it out that more women now wear glasses then the few that don't.

It was 0n Channel 49 Jewellery Chanel in the UK. The woman I saw was blond, she later referred to wearing glasses as she was having arrest from contacts. She said she looked like a sexy teacher! I will need to keep a look out for the dark haired woman you saw if she was on the same channel!?

Intersting! Yesterday when i was just searching through channels on my TV I happened past that channel and saw an attractive young woman wearing a nice pair of black plastic frames as I recall she had dark longish hair? I watched for several minutes but since I don't usually watch that channel, no real interest in jewelery, I got bored watching even though she was nice to look at.

But from what you say, you do watch more often and her wearing glasses is not a normal look for her? So I may have to switch over more often to see if she continues wearing glasses or if she maybe just had a contact problem and she can't see well enough without correction.

Does it sound like we are talking about the same young lady?

Wow, te we must have found the same link at the same time. He is a very high profile, much photographed man, so must always be in contacts when in public, except the one day I saw him on his show, and his glasses looked quite strong although no real closeups that day. It must be a personal thing for him, as MSNBC has a number of other handsome myopic anchors who often, or always, appear in glasses, such as Steve Kornacki, Chris Hayes, Ezra Klein, to name a few.

Carlos, in ref to you post on Chuck Todd; this was several years ago already and one Monday morning on his morning show he was wearing ultra strong minus glasses, that had a lot of reflection and flash to them, especially whenever he turned his. They seemed to have less close-uo shots that day, but I would guess his glasses were easily in the - teens. I went into work a little late that day so I could watch the whole show. So I anxiously tuned in the next morning as I was getting ready for work, and there was someone else, Luke Russert I think, filling in for him. The following Day, Wed, Chuck was back with no glasses and I have not seen him in them since. It made me wonder if he had Lasik later that first day, took the following day off, and then was back. Did anyone else catch this or ever see him in quite strong minus glasses. Would be curious to know what his Rx was/is. And just BTW, I think he is a great anchorman.

She has said that she usually wears her glasses to work and then puts on the contacts while in makeup. That was how she ended up having to wear her glasses the first time, because she had forgot to put her contacts in her bag, and the poor girl can't see the prompter without correction.

Agree her prescription does not look strong. But she might have quite some astigmatism, which not always shows in pics of people in glasses. Astigmatism is tough to correct with contacts, and her glasses do not look heavy so she might as well enjoy perfect vision on a full-time basis thanks to glasses.

Sadly though they never had any closeups of her so there was no way to even have a guess at how strong her glasses are.

Earlier today Fast Money on CNBC featured Melissa Lee in a stylish, updated pair (compared with what I can remember from the past--previous pairs seemed to have thicker lenses in a less flattering shape). In her case, glasses onscreen are fairly rare.

Has anyone seen the video of the young lady that quit her job in a most interesting way. She is 25, very attractive and she is wearing glasses throughout.

Go to "You Tube" and it is called "An interpretive dance for my boss set to Kanye West's Gone" video

Also if you look about you can find where she was a guest on The Queen Latifah Show" last Thursday. She was wearing er glasses on there as well. I did find manage to find other pictures of her that looks like they may have been from before she started wearing glasses.

Trust me she is worth looking for.

Someone with a better knowledge than I have may want to put them up even as i think there would be much interest in her.

Oh and she was offered a job working for Queen Latifah. She has not decided to take it though.

Correction noted. :)

Yes, I still have drop-temples, 14 pairs to be exact. I have told my opticians to be on the lookout for them, along with cat's-eyes. If we do have any matching frames, they are probably from the Diplomat collection, but unfortunately that company is no more.

Soundmanpt 26 Sep 2013, 14:14


One can only hope so.

Revolver 26 Sep 2013, 14:07

Melyssa, I stand humbly corrected. Don't know where the hell I got the idea she was Canadian, probably had her confused with some other GWG I saw on TV. BTW, a year or so ago I asked how many drop temples you had and you responded immediately. I'm still rounding mine up, they're scattered in various places in my 400+ collection, someday will get a count and we can compare. One thing that's inevitable between the large numbers we have, there's bound to be duplications but also some that one has an not the other. Not trying to compete with you but at least we both dig drop temples.

Does anyone know if any of the other women at HLN other than Robin Meade and Lynn Berry wear glasses?

Lv2c4i 26 Sep 2013, 07:44

Unusual aspect to Robin Meade's spexy showing this past Tuesday: she started the show bare-eyed, but put her glasses on about 15 minutes into the show and wore them for the rest of the show--check the caps on TvNewsCaps. Don't know if she gave any explanation of the shift.

Also, on the NBC bit from Sunday TODAY about glasses and styles, Kathie Lee Gifford talks about the expensive glasses she likes so much, but never puts them on. The style expert (Bobbi Thomas?) did a good job in choosing frames for the four anchors but little video of any except Erica Hill.

Melyssa 25 Sep 2013, 16:12


I have seen Carla Hall and her pretty frames a number of times on the show that she is a part of on weekdays, called "The Chew." I'm sure I would make her jealous of my collection, and maybe even versa vice concerning some of her frames. She was born not long after I began wearing glasses.

So what part of Canada is Nashville, Tennessee, her place of birth?

Revolver 25 Sep 2013, 14:45

This is not a news personality per se unless you consider a cooking show news, but no other thread fits either. There is a Canadian born celebrity chef named Carla Hall who has an unbelievable collection of glasses, wears a different on every day on a show that is on ABC 5 days a week. Yesterday it was white semi-cateyes, the day before large black plastic frames, can hardly wait to see today. It's hard to get a handle on her scrip as the larger lenses of course make them look stronger, the small ones not so much, best guess is in the -400 range. She's around 50 y.o. so they probably have a progressive add, but one thing sure is she is never without them.

Soundmanpt 24 Sep 2013, 13:08


Sure just my luck. I usually always check each morning to see if she is wearing her glasses and as far as I know it has been a good while since she has wore them. I thought maybe she was told my her staff not to wear her glasses anymore. Well anyway good to hear that must not have happened. I will watch tomorrow hoping for a repeat showing.

Sorry I missed that show. Being Sunday I assume they only had pictures of the those women wearing their glasses at various times? So did the segment have other models in the studio wearing glasses or just a table with different styles of glasses available?

Sunday on the Today Show they did a segment on glasses and style. They have really nice shots of Savannah, Erica, and Dylan with their nice minus glasses on. Also Matt, Al, and Lester wearing their reading glasses.

I saw Erica Hill on the Today show on 9/15/13. She looked really exquisite in her large black conservative frames. They just really fit her well and were just perfect for her!

Revolver 16 Sep 2013, 14:16

Saw Erica, great frame, a large black roundish plastic of the type males wore in the 50's and 60's. I was guessing the rx at around -4.00 but no matter, she looks great.

But, she's really a hit or miss GWG. On Friday she did a feature piece and was wearing them, and then is the custom right at the end of the hour her weekend co-host comes on and they talk about the Saturday and Sunday shows. On Saturday she was not wearing them, but on Sunday she did. When she was on CBS she often wore smaller feminine black plastic frames but then quit cold and this is the first time I've seen her with glasses on Today. There was a spirited discussion on this thread when she was with CBS as to whether not wearing was her decision or one made by the suits at CBS.

This morning on the TODAY program Erica Hill was wearing her low minus (~ -3.00D) glasses but Dylan Dreyer the weather girl was not.

True about the grammar/clarity issue. It inappropriately relied on a prior post to make it clear as to exactly what had become irritated. Since the un-named source is too anal-retentive to understand the less-than-perfectly-composed sentence, let me try again. It was Ms. Guthrie's EYES that had become irritated from having a banana cream pie thrown in her face by Jimmy Fallon, causing her to have to wear her glasses the next day instead of her contact lenses. Better now?

 10 Aug 2013, 09:29

"Savannah Guthrie was wearing her glasses today because they were irritated from receiving a pie-in-the-face from Jimmy Fallon."

I don't blame her glasses for being irritated by being given a pie in the face. Which face was that, the right or the left?

Lynn Berry was anchoring the Headline News afternoon show yesterday wearing a handsome pair of dark framed glasses that looked very attractive on her. Lynn is relatively new to the CNN/HLN networks (she moved from one of the other networks) and I think this may be her first time wearing her spex on the air. Wonder if anyone will post caps and if she'll be wearing them again today--I think she's subbing on that afternoon show all week.

Also, I noticed CNN's Susan Malveaux with a pair of glasses at her elbow last week, but so far, she's not been seen (captured) wearing them.

Although I don't want to make light of the Cleveland kidnapping tragedy, I must take a moment to comment that Gina DeJesus has some of the most beautiful eyes I have ever seen, with and without glasses!

I thought I heard somewhere that her glasses were lost during the initial kidnapping and she went through the last ten years in a blur. If they were kept in a low light area, the blur would have been magnified making things much harder for her to see.

Would there be any long term effects from going that long without wearing your glasses? Based on the pictures, does anyone an idea what her prescription might be?

Lv2c4i 04 Apr 2013, 06:43

It was the 2nd evening in a row for Diane in her glasses. She is one, like Gayle King on CBS Morning Show, with an extensive wardrobe of frame styles. It seemed that the lighting last evening was better--perhaps they'd adjusted things so there would be less glare/reflection. While Diane has worn her glasses often on camera, this is one of the few times she has anchored the evening news show with them. We'll see what the rest of the week brings as far as eyewear (or bare).

Don Lemon of CNN was wearing a very strong pair of readers. This man must be older then he looks. There was a lot magnification in these glasses.

why do people make that crazy assumption? i've known many, many people with very bad eyes over the years who put off getting glasses, and then their first pair appears quite strong. this is not as unusual as you think, guyz!

Lv2c4i 27 Mar 2013, 07:27

Thanks for the Erin caps. I was glad she finally smiled in a few of the later shots as, even in glasses, she didn't look that fine in the first few pictures. Perhaps she was concerned or preoccupied with the preflight security lines and doings?

I noted that a local news anchor who wore her glasses for the first (and so far only) time for the newscast a few weeks back seemed very uncomfortable in them. Perhaps overly self-conscious? (One could presume from the strength of the scrip that they were not her first/new glasses).

And over on CBS, their This Morning show co-host Gayle King was wearing a different pair than I've seen, these were all silver metal, almost oval, kind of a throw back to the 90's. She's been wearing glasses quite often lately, even appearing in one of their promos with them, have seen 2 other pairs on her both contemporary plastic. Are was seeing a trend here?

That picture still isn't close enough to get a good look at her glasses, but her eyes don't appear any smaller and I don't see much of a cut-in. So I really doubt her glasses are anywhere close to -9.00.

I think there is a good chance that you might see Robin wearing glasses more often in the future. It was reported on another show about her return but also that due to the bone maroe transplant it has effected her vision and she was having a lot of trouble seeing the teleprompter and showed her struggling and squinting to see it. So she may soon be wearing bifocals.

Lv2c4i 21 Feb 2013, 06:47

After a period of being bare-eyed, Savannah Guthrie was sporting her spex on the TODAY show yesterday (2/20). Her spex prompted no comments that I heard from any of her mates. Today she is back to bare-eyed, but some caps from yesterday are probably out there....

Also, Robin Roberts returned to her Good Morning America gig after months of sick leave with a new set of frames for the reading glasses that she keeps at her elbow on the anchor desk. However, she very rarely is seen in the spex.

Astras post may seem off topic,but to the regulars in here we remember that the young woman she is giving an update about happens to be very attractive young woman that a number of pictures of her was posted in here. In all of her pictures she was wearing glasses with a decent prescription. I am glad for the update as i'm sure had she stayed on in her job she soon would have been tortured and killed. Even carrying a gun if her glasses were to get knocked off or taken from her she would not have been able to see well enough to shoot at them.

May she and her child have a long life here in the states.

I only wish Astra had some recent photos to go with the update.

Astra 18 Feb 2013, 23:03

some updates about Marisol Valles Garcia:

"The bravest woman in Mexico" as she came to be called, held the job for five months before death threats forced her to flee. Marisol fled Mexico before cartel killers could make their move, and is now seeking political asylum in the U.S.

Praxedis Guerrero a small town in El Valle de Juarez, is known as "one of the most violent towns in Mexico" Marisol's predecessor was tortured and then beheaded by sicarios, naturally nobody rushed in to replace him. Valles-Garcia a mother of one, took the position "I'm doing this for my people" she said "This is not for me, I'm tired of all the drug violence."

Upon taking the job, Marisol put out word that her office would police the community and not poke around in cartel business. That move bought her some time, but it wasn't long before death threats started to come in. Officers under her command reported that cartel sicarios were shadowing her every move. They advised Marisol to abandon her post and leave the town.

Perhaps with the deaths of Hermila Garcia-Quinones and Ericka Gandara on her mind, Valles-Garcia grew wary. When several black vehicles with dark tinted windows parked directly across the street from her office, Marisol made her choice. Within a few hours she had picked up her 1 yr. old son and crossed into the United States. To gain asylum status, one has to prove a "well- founded fear of persecution" With two female police chiefs already murdered, it would seem that Marisol Valles-Garcia has a good argument for asylum.

Our mothers, sisters, wives, aunts, are the keystones that we build our lives around. A healthy society, is one that holds its women in reverence, one that protects its women and children. Once that basic principle of morality and obligation breaks down, the social structure is forever damaged. Nothing is sacred and no good deed goes unpunished in a land ruled by a confederacy of brutes.

Soundmanpt 13 Feb 2013, 21:22


Yes I totally agree with you. Since she has been on the stand I have started to notice that every now and then you can see a very slight minification through her right lens looking at her hair. Shows a small cut-in that way.

It was interesting today because as she is getting closer to the actual killing she is starting to break down. Yesterday they delayed the trial because her family reported that she was a mess. And seeing highlights today she was crying quite a bit and removed her glasses several times to wipe tears from her eyes. Then at one point even cleaned them before putting them back on. I think there will be much more of that happening now as we are getting very close to the killing.

Corey 13 Feb 2013, 15:58

Thanks all for the info/corrections.

Didn't know that Whitney Cummings was regularly wearing hers--so yes they may not be props after all. Perhaps, she and her producers, etc. think glasses 'work' well on her, particularly when doing fake news/comedy.

RE Katty Kay, any idea of her Rx? They look mild. It seems like when she does wear her glasses, they stay on throughout. I agree the frames suit her despite the nerd-inspired look. Obviously on all these news/talk panel shows she's not really reading anything. I was just wondering whether she is an original myope skipping the contacts nowadays...or is she a newer multifocal plus wearer discovering the need for hyperopia+presbyopia correction in her 40s.

Philosifer 13 Feb 2013, 13:00

Re Katty Kay

Actually, her first 'major' appearance for a who;e evening was Nov. 6. as she anchored BBC coverage of the US election results. After that she blogged a bit about how the progressives made her feel cross-eyed.

But it is great to see her wearing them again quite regularly

Yoyo 13 Feb 2013, 11:01

Re: Whitney Cummings. It seems like she's been wearing glasses on pretty much every episode of her new talk show, and I'm not sure they're props. It would make sense if she's mildly nearsighted and doesn't need to wear them most of the time, but when doing this one she needs to read the teleprompter and so wears glasses.

I agree, she looks very good in the various frames she wears, better than without glasses!

Lv2c4i 13 Feb 2013, 07:29

Katty Kay, BBC Washington, DC correspondent, appears fairly regularly on MSNBC's Morning Joe as one of their panelists/commentators. Maybe 6 weeks ago she appeared wearing glasses for the first time and the others made the typical sorts of comments on the new glasses (looking smarter, they're attractive, etc.) and she good-naturedly accepted it all.

Since then she has appeared sometimes bare-eyed, sometimes wearing the specs. I noted in her latest appearance she was wearing glasses and there were numerous close-ups of her bespectacled face. She has chosen a version of the fashionable nerd-style frames--dark and very out-front--and imho, they suit her better than others who choose the same styles. I have never seen any caps of her in glasses.

Corey 12 Feb 2013, 20:29

A couple of news or entertainment glasses events...

Whitney Cummings, on her E! show "Love You, Mean It" in an episode that aired late last month (I think January 23?) These were obviously props worn ironically I suppose, but very becoming.

Katty Kay of BBC America, on NBC's Meet the Press Feb 10. These looked real and she wore throughout the panel discussion. I don't know if she has worn glasses in the past, if this is a new thing for her, or her contacts weren't available. I could not tell what kind of prescription, but she is 48.

Any further info on these is welcome.

Soundmanpt 11 Feb 2013, 00:29


I do see that and it is very hard to tell what that could be, there is a machine behind her and I guess it could possibly be a section of that showing on her lens. Very hard to say? But as you can see there doesn't appear to be any sign of even a tiny bit of cut-in looking through her lens. This is not to say that her glasses are plano but I just think they are very, very weak and could be plus or minus even. But my guess is since she went on trial, this is the longest she has ever worn her glasses. It is interesting how much different she looks from 5 years ago when she was a smokin hot blond. This is a look that has been used quite often to really downplay the looks of these young females.

If you recall not long ago tere was another trial where a woman stabbed and killed her husband and she too claimed self defense. She was also a very pretty young lady but they too had her dress very casual, changed her hair color to dark, pulled it back into a ponytail and of course she now was wearing glasses and not designer glasses but very plain looking wire frame glasses that someone her age would never even consider wearing. She did manage to get her years reduced, she did not get off as she was trying to in the new trial.

Astra 11 Feb 2013, 00:09

then this image looks really strange. the white part inside the right lens may not be really the minified image. Could be caused by the camera itself !

Soundmanpt 10 Feb 2013, 10:42


I am quite sure her glasses are no where near -3.00. I have been watching everyday since she took the stand trying hard to find even a slight prescription and even with a nice new 60" HD TV she has virtually no cut-in at all. Their seems to be many shots of her looking off to her right, at the jury, so looking through her right lens I see no distortion at all.

I do recall a few days back when she was still at the table beside her attorney she pulled her glasses down her nose quite far and was looking over the top of them, but at the angle the camera was at it was hard to tell if she looking at her monitor or if she was looking in the distance. There must have been something she felt she could see better without her glasses. But other than that she has been very religous about wearing her glasses daily now. When her trial first began she wasn't wearing glasses, so to be honest I paid much less attention. Then one day when I tuned in and she was wearing glasses, then I started following it daily.

Melyssa 10 Feb 2013, 09:49

I think her best-looking frames are the ones from Thursday's picture at 3:02 p.m., dark with fade to the middle and clear at the bottom, like one of my large drop-temples.

Astra 10 Feb 2013, 07:55

Re: Soundmanpt 08 Feb 2013, 17:29

Soundmanpt 08 Feb 2013, 17:29


Have you noticed that really all of her glasses are not very trendy at all? I did see her one day at her trial wearing a much newer and more fashionable style of glasses but only that one time. It seems they really want to play down her looks as much as possible to make her look as average as possible. If you notice she has hardly any makeup on and her clothes have been very simple and loose fitting as well. Also as you say I have been watching her trial a good bit and even more now that she is on the stand and trying hard to see if she even has any prescription in her glasses. If she does it has to be a very weak prescription. I noticed once when she was at the desk that she even pulled them down her nose to look off the top of her glasses to look in the distance making me think they could be for close up. Little doubt that her attorney's have told her how to dress and maybe even picked out glasses for her as well. They want her to come across as the farmers daughter type.

I have looked at several times and even some of the other videos as well and not much to go by only a couple of shots from the backside that you can get a peek through her left lens. There is a backdrop with writing on it and there appears to be a very slight distortion of the words in the background. But this could be caused by the angle as well. Probably just a very weak prescription, maybe a minus so she can see the any signs or prompts nearby.

re Misty Kingma

I checked a couple of vids.

Very hard to prove its progressive. In the previous video posted here, I could see a wave effect when people are passing by and glasses can be seen from behind...

I can guess she is wearing a + rx, but a very low power with some cylinder for sure.

When she is looking at laptop on the youtube videos she does not move the head like the normal progressive wearers do. May be she has bigger text on laptop screen or she just need glasses for prolonged reading only.

Biggest point i noticed was she is a cool girl and describe her on facebook page like this: "News Personality: Positively witty Entertainment Journalist who happens to wear glasses."

Cool girl. I like her :)

John S 17 Jan 2013, 22:34

Regarding the prescription in her glasses, some weeks back Erin Andrews tweeted that her specs are in fact bifocals. Someone had commented about her "four-eyes" and she responded, "Actually it's eight-eyes, they're bifocals".

And there are some tweets following last weekend's reappearance of her specs encouraging her to wear them again.

I have to say I am not a fan in anyway of the Kardashian's. But their new eyewear line does look good and they even look good modeling the glasses.

I thought you added quite a few new pairs this past year. Nothing in the world wrong with that.

1. I'm wearing the big black Kourtney Kardashian cat's-eye right now, but I will be switching to square black drop-temples by noon EST.

2. I spelled her name correctly because no one before did, referring to her as Krysten instead of Kyrsten, and I'm really not concerned about her looks or Sarah Pain's [sic]; just mentioning that most politicians are fat pigs, hence the "pork" term always used in CONgress.

3. 2012 was indeed an eyewear record for me, with 10 new pairs, 8 of which were cat's-eyes. Who knows what 2013 will bring? Blue cat's-eyes would be the main goal.

If you notice you in both places you spelled her name the right way. I know you meant to say NOT Kirsten. I must agree I too find her much more attractive than Sarah Palin. Lets hope she keeps the glasses and doesn't go over to contacts.

At least she's getting the idea that there are many out here in TV land that are finding her incredibly sexy when she is wearing her glasses these days. And don't tell me she isn't loving it as well. I believe she really did have an issue one morning because of forgetting to have her contacts with her for work. And not being able to see well enough to see the monitor she didn't have any choice but to wear her glasses, but I don't think she had any idea so many would be so positive about her in glasses and good for her to be smart enough to not turn her back on the public outcry, but instead take it to heart and make wearing glasses at least a some time part of her attire now. I bet truth be told she is probably more comfortable wearing her glasses than the contacts anyway. That is likely what caused the mishap in the first place. She likely has a habit of wearing her glasses to the studio in the wee hours of the morning as her eyes are probably not yet ready to be sticking anything into them. But when she went to make the switch from her glasses to contacts and they weren't in her bag she was left with little choice. I'm pretty sure she probably tested if she could see the monitor or not without correction and she wasn't able to so the glasses were her only option.

Soundmanpt 29 Dec 2012, 20:52

I think we all know she is wrong about us not noticing if she were to start wearing her glasses everyday. Not to mention she of course could always have several pairs that she could change into from day to day. Not only would us guys be watching more but now even the ladies would be watching to see what glasses shes wearing each day.

Some comment about Robin's spex on her twitter stream. Several comments were positive and encouraging. One guy said that she should wear 'em everyday. To which she responded, "Then, you wouldn't notice." (Which kinda sounds like she'll wear her glasses occasionally, but not regularly. But then she also rotates other parts of her wardrobe: tops, belts, earrings, necklaces, etc.

One tweet suggested that her looking so hot and great in her glasses was prompting men throughout the land to get their wives to an eye exam so that they could also get hot eyewear.

Hard to tell, maybe it was her own decision to wear contacts more often, who knows. But I do well remember when she was first hired on with CBS doing their morning show she wore her glasses quite often. I would say 3 or 4 days out of a week. And before that when she did the overnight with one of the cable news outlets she often wore glasses then as well.

Hoped to find some caps of Erica in spex, but have come up empty. She had been "out late" the night before covering the big 12-12-12 concert benefit for hurricane sandy communities. Perhaps the late nite and early morning prompted the eyewear appearance. And none since.

She had very modern, large black framed spex. I thought they were really too large for her face, but it's what she'd chosen and weren't all that bad. They were actually akin to what I recall Ann Curry wearing (just once) some weeks back for her first post-TODAY show appearance. (Again, no caps.)

As far as Erica, I suspect that sooner or later, she'll again appear in her glasses.

CNN's Robin Meade back to bare-eyed this morning. But, has about 30 caps from yesterday's show. Most are fairly close and front-on views. They show a wide variety of facial expressions and angles. There seems to be very little "cut-in" nor power rings which indicates very low prescription, right?

Also, yesterday the show's sports reporter wore glasses also claiming a contact lens misfunction. Robin mentioned that she was "starting a trend" and encouraged the financial reporter to put on her glasses if she had any, but there was no response to the invitation/quip, neither any specs nor any comment.

Soundmanpt 05 Dec 2012, 22:36

It sure is beginning to look that way. Shes already a beautiful women and now wearing glasses she is even more appealing. It seems there are many others besides the "eyescene" community that must feel the same way.

I think each time we see these beautiful ladies wearing their glasses on air is is putting another hole in that wall that says these women shouldn't war glasses on the air. That wall may soon crumble.

Lucas 05 Dec 2012, 10:41

It looks like she enjoys wearing them as she keeps retweeting positive commentaries on her glasses. If it was only up to her, im sure she would wear them all the time

Lv2c4i and Mr. Cockeyed

I agree that for many of these women wearing contacts is the norm for them and so they of course are not going to wear glasses unless there is w real reason to. But in the cases of Erica Hill and Savannah Gutherie, both these young ladies when they first started doing the morning news were seen at least 50% of the time wearing glasses, but not long after they they became anchors the glasses were mostly gone. I agree that Robin Meade admitted that it was only due to her not being able to find her contacts that forced her to appear wearing glasses. And very understandable that because of the extreme early hour she has to be at work each morning she likely wears her glasses to the studio, goes to makeup and then switches to contacts and most likely wears contacts the rest of the day. Erin Andrews was spotted while working for the other network doing sideline reports more then once wearing glasses some of the time. So in her case it is also most likely her preference as to if she wears glasses or contacts. Overall I would agree that many or most of the women on air reporters and anchors probably choose to wear contacts just because they feel they look better without glasses.

Like you you said Mr. Cockeyed we too have a local anchor girl that is very attractive and she has been on air now for about 3 or 4 years and she is never seen wearing glasses, but one night there was a big fire and she must have been the closest reporter to the scene and she became a reporter and I was very surprised to see her wearing glasses and much like your reporter it was clear she had a pretty strong prescription. I doubt she will ever be seen again wearing glasses. Too bad.

Mr Cockeyed 28 Nov 2012, 09:15

There is an unwritten law that female news people usually don't wear glasses unless like Savannah Guthrie, when she wore her contacts too long the night before. Do you remember when Katie Couric started wearing reading glasses? They almost forced her not to wear them. Now, she has her own show and uses them.

The network executives want people with no glasses, Soundmanpt, we have discussed this before, I knew a local news anchor and she only once wore glasses, and wore an rx of -7.50 or so. Anybody with a strong rx plus or minus, detracts from the overall view. I wish it was acceptable for women to wear glasses, but it ain't gunna happan

Lv2c4i 28 Nov 2012, 07:09

I wonder about the idea of "pressure from above" being the reason for the scarcity of specs on TV newswomen.

I tend to think that they are much like other women (classmates, coworkers, etc.) that I've encountered over the years. Most of these have a preference for contact lenses for vision correction and wear the lenses most of the time. Occasionally there will be a "sighting" when the ease of simply slipping on their specs overcomes their vanity or whatever else may contribute to their aversion to glasses.

Thus, Erica Hill, Savannah Guthrie, Robin Meade, Erin Andrews among others will likely not regularly wear glasses on the air--or even when they are "off the air." We can hope that they might choose to make their eyewear an occasional part of their wardrobe just as they change jewelry, outfits, and other parts of their wardrobes from day to day.

Finally, I'd point to the big headline about Robin's glasses and the big positive response that her wearing then on the air prompted. The "higher ups" certainly saw--and maybe even directed--that reporting of how great the glasses were seen to be.

Jose 25 Nov 2012, 01:03

I seen rumors that Lauer will be switching to multi-focal contacts---will see if that happens.

Soundmanpt 24 Nov 2012, 10:35

Once again I think the powers that be have told them to avoid wearing their glasses while on the air. It was quite clear that both these young ladies preferred to wear their glasses more than contacts. If you think about it makes sense that they would. I'm sure the need to be at the studio at 3 AM each day it was much easier to slip on glasses and go. I really doubt that it has been their choice to wear contacts. It makes sense too that the morning after the election and working late into the night Miss Gunthrie's eyes probably couldn't tolerate her contacts again so soon and the network execs allowed it for that day.

Rob 24 Nov 2012, 06:06

You are correct- Erica stopped wearing her glasses after the new CBS program with Charlie Rose began. She is now on Weekend Today, and unfortunately the trend has continued every time she is on air. Hopefully today or tomorrow will break the streak.

Savannah wore her glasses on Today the day after the election, but nothing since then. The reading glasses are Matt Lauer's. Clearly, I know too much about this shit!

Soundmanpt 24 Nov 2012, 01:15


Yes but did you also notice not long after Erica Hill was the morning anchor on CBS she suddenly stopped wearing her glasses and then she disappeared. Over on NBC Savanah before she was named the new morning anchor was often seen wearing her glasses and not long after that she was never seen wearing her glasses again. At least not when I have tuned in. I have seen glasses on the table in front of some of them but they could be anyone's.

I agree it would be nice to see them both start to wear their glasses more often.

Revolver 23 Nov 2012, 20:31

This may come under the heading of wishful thinking, but.... We all enjoyed Savannah Guthrie when she first became morning anchor on The Today Show and she wasn't shy about wearing her glasses.

Now, CBS canned Erica Hill and Today picked her up, so now we have 2 myopes who have been known to wear their fine minuses on camera.

Let's all wish very hard, maybe someday both of them will be seen wearing them. And often?

Soundmanpt 23 Nov 2012, 10:43

I have made a point to check in each day to see if Robin Meade is wearing her glasses or not but she has been off all this week. I wonder if she is maybe preparing to go in for what they call a "touch-up" on her eyes? In other words most of the places that do lasik has a warranty that if your vision gets to -1.25 they will do the procedure over so long as your corneas are still thick enough. But you can't wear contacts for several weeks before the procedure. I don't think her vision could have gotten too bad in just 2 years time. But even being just slightly nearsighted and wearing contacts on a daily basis seeing the teleprompter a challenge if she didn't have her contacts handy. She did mention that she didn't think she could handle seeing the teleprompter if she didn't wear her glasses.

Sadly I think at some point she will be going for the touch-up procedure and the glasses will again be gone.

Lv2c4i 17 Nov 2012, 06:55

I, too, was pleasantly surprised to see Robin again in her glasses so soon. From what I saw, she didn't mention why she was wearing them, tho there were a couple of comments about them. She also toyed with them a bit, at least once removing them during a break (to read script?), but then she put them back on almost as soon as the camera came back to her.

And, on her twitter page she noted briefly "Glasses = more tweets" and made also a comment about her eyelashes brushing the lenses of the specs.

"Will she or won't she?" may well be a day-to-day issue for her fans from now on.

Soundmanpt 16 Nov 2012, 10:07

What a pleasant way to wake up this morning. I turned the TV on in my bedroom and found that Robin Meade is again wearing her glasses. Since I didn't catch the beginning of the show I don't know if she made any comment or if anyone else made any comments about her glasses. I'm sure she can't use the same reason as she did before about not being able to find her contacts. Maybe since she was forced to come out being a glasses wearer she now figures there is no harm wearing them more often. The fact that she must go into the studio wearing her glasses and only puts the contacts on to go on air which is how she discovered she didn't have her contacts or at least couldn't find them when she was getting ready to go on air proofs she must wear glasses more than contacts. That would also explain why she had her glasses handy when she couldn't find the contacts. I think she looks every bit as attractive wearing glasses as she does without them.

I can't wait till Monday to see if she will be wearing glasses yet again. It sure makes watching the news far more interesting.

Corey 15 Nov 2012, 20:49


I certainly know about the intentional overcorrection done by many surgeons; this is part of their model in which, statistically, most patients will regress a bit to normal vision.

There are, however, some patients who STAY overcorrected, which will eventually manifest itself into visual discomfort--probably in the late 30s or early 40s. My optometrist told me this is not unusual. Also consider that the LASIK technique as it was practiced in the late 90s was perhaps not as refined as it is now. BTW, I don't know if there were warranties back then.

Another possibility: some patients who are nearsighted will see their nearsightedness drop a bit around the same age, or later on of course, as the eyes naturally change over time. So if a patient has had LASIK, such a drop in nearsightedness would translate into farsightedness.

Either way (or a combination of both factors), I would guess she is slightly farsighted along with creeping presbyopia. It is not as if people suddenly need constant correction for presbyopia alone around age 40. (After all she jumped back into contacts, which is a rather drastic step if you just need mild reading correction.) The process is gradual--that's why there is a wide range of add lens powers from +0.75 to +3.50.

But, if she has say a +1.25 lens power for distance with an add of say +1.25, this would clearly sum up to a greater need for correction than an expected reading Rx alone. Or, she may not even have an add yet in the first place! This is quite possible as well.

Unfortunately, by wearing contacts the last two years, her eyes got so used to the correction (since obviously they contstantly stay in) that she cannot tolerate being without them on set, so that day she HAD to put her glasses on.

Also, I don't know if we should take everything she writes literally (referring to her ability to read the prompter). She probably can see quite well at distance, at least for now. As mentioned, internally her eyes have not been affected by LASIK. One thing my optometrist told me was that when you are nearsighted your eyes WANT to focus, or even overfocus. In any case, her eyes are definitely not the same as someone who is farsighted in the first place. Otherwise she probably would have had the usual symptoms years earlier.

Soundmanpt 15 Nov 2012, 09:27


It is very common for most everyone getting Lasik to be over corrected. I know of quite a few now that have gotten it and everyone of them came out seeing at least at 20/15 and even 20/10. This is done intentionly because inmost cases the eyes will eventually settle in at 20/20, or slightly better. Also since most doctors that preform the procedure offer a warranty that if the patients vision should regress to -1.25 they will do what is referred to as a "touch-up" which means they will redo the procedure again at no charge to bring the patient back to perfect vision again. This warranty however does not cover the need for plus correction if and when that occurs. In Miss Meades case I would agree that she likely found that her close vision needed correction and instead of doing like some reporters do and just keep glasses close at hand for when they needed them to read small print she likely opted for contacts to avoid wearing glasses. Her eye have likely adjusted to them now for distance as well as close up. She stated that she had to wear her glasses in order to read notes as well as the prompter. Sadly it doesn't look like unless she has a mal function with her contacts again we won't be blessed with seeing her in glasses again. I bet she now keeps a spair pair of contacts at the studio just in case. It is interesting that she for some reason must have had her glasses in her purse. I know many contact wearers and i don't think any of them have their glasses with them when they leave home.

Corey 14 Nov 2012, 21:39

I just went through all the info about Robin Meade, her LASIK surgery 15 years ago, and her return to corrective lenses two years ago. I also just checked her age (born April l969) and I am quite surprised that she began to wear contacts (as glasses were out of the question, professionally) again by age 41.

For someone who was earlier nearsighted, presumably, her focusing muscles generally would not be expected to degrade so early or so rapidly. After all, LASIK does not affect the internal eye. Even for many people in their early 40s who are emmetropic one might expect a pair of glasses needed for small print, not for constant wear!

My best guess here is that she was probably overcorrected, i.e. made hyperopic by LASIK, which probably did not bother her until recently. By two years ago the onset of presbyopia was likely beginning to rear its head as well. The combination of the two forces was probably too much to bear. Hence the contacts.

Melyssa 13 Nov 2012, 15:25

CNN's AccentHealth is always on the TV set at the office of the primary care physician that my husband and I use. Robin Meade is the main person on it, and she wasn't wearing glasses on Thursday when my husband and I had our appointments -- or any other time there, for that matter. Maybe in May, eh?

Lv2c4i 13 Nov 2012, 05:58

While she is today back to bare-eyed, all the pics of Robin in glasses from yesterday are appreciated. And am glad to see the overwhelmingly positive response to her bespectacled beauty. On the You-Tube link you will find several of the comments her cohorts made on the air and her explanations of why she's wearing the spex.

On her twitter page(s), Robin provides more info about her vision. In the last week or so she posted a couple of photos of her in the glasses almost as a preview. She mentions the possibility of her eyes becoming tired and her having to wear the spex to deal with the fatigue.

She also mentions getting lasik 15 years ago and how, until 2 years ago, she enjoyed having clear bare-eyed vision, but has had, in these last couple of years, to rely again on glasses or contacts. Wonder when we'll again see them on the air.

Lastly, I'd applaud her stylish choice of frames. Very contemporary and well-suited to her and the professional demeanor she seeks to present.

Corey 12 Nov 2012, 20:15

Re Erin on ESPN, thanks to all. I stand corrected.

I however would remain skeptical on glasses being a permanent thing for her. Most likely this is an 'adjustment period' after which they will most likely disappear. They seem to go away for just about every female news personality after a temporary 'wearing period'.

One likely possibility is that her earlier wearing (as some of you mentioned) was strictly part-time for distance, but that regimen is no longer viable, and for near vision her eyes won't adjust to her distance Rx, hence the progressive lenses.

Brian  12 Nov 2012, 18:12

Found this from Robin Meade: I thought I packed my contacts (on the packaging of which I scrawled "R" and "L" with a black Sharpie, denoting which eye gets which strength of lens) in my purse Sunday night before I headed to bed at an ungodly early hour as early risers do.

But when I went to morph into "anchor lady" in the makeup chair Monday morning before show time, I couldn't find the contacts. Eeek! How would I be able to read the copy, the tweets, and the prompter all morning? This meant I had to break out the specs, which I’ve never worn on air in the years and years I’ve worked at HLN.

Soundmanpt 09 Nov 2012, 00:53


No Erin has had glasses for some time, but I don't know if they ere bifocals or not. She has been spotted more than once on the sidelines of football games wearing glasses. But no idea if they were for distance so she could better see what was happening on the field or if they were for close up so she could see things written that she also was often looking at on a clipboard. That we will sadly never know unless for some reason she comments on it herself. Really we are lucky that she even let it be known that she is wearing bifocals as that would have been hard to tell since they are likely progressives. That is why I think the bifocals are new for her because that is why she made a point about it herself. Since she has had glasses for a while there would likely have been no reason to point it out except that it was something new for her. Again that is really only a guess.

Corey 08 Nov 2012, 21:11


I personally doubt Erin has had glasses for a long time. If this was a conversion from single vision to multifocal lenses, it should be easy enough to move seamlessly in contacts. For a first, presumably small add, it shouldn't be a huge deal. After all, there are plenty of public figures in their 50s, 60s, 70s, etc whom you hardly ever see in glasses. Presumably they are either doing monovison or in bifocal contacts.

Rather, I think these are her first glasses and she wanted to 'come out' in them, maybe experiment contacts and glasses alternately, get used to them, etc., before settling into contacts for her TV career. Has she appeared without glasses recently? What kind of Rx does she have?

Corey 08 Nov 2012, 21:05

On election night (early morning Nov 7), Paula Faris was in glasses anchoring ABC news overnight. The pattern was unusual though:

first phase, no glasses in sight.

second phase, glasses on table in front of her.

third phase, continuous wear for the rest of the broadcast.

Any idea of Rx?

She is 37 by now. If this is just a reading/hyperopic Rx, I don't know why she was wearing them continuously for the last hour or so, given that she wasn't wearing them at all earlier. The usual pattern for reader-wearers is to have them on the table and wear as needed.

Tango 08 Nov 2012, 10:25

Lv2c4i 01 Nov 2012, 15:55

About Erin and her specs. I suspect that like lots of young girls, she was prescribed glasses around adolescence. And like lots of young women, she got contacts fairly early on, which she wore most of the time. They were useful in her high visibility TV career. And now she is finding a need for bifocal correction and is choosing to wear the glasses (we'll see how often) rather than snatching reading glasses on and off of her eyes. There is obviously no way of knowing what is her actual history (unless she fesses up like she did about her bifocals), but I'm believing there's lots more women who've been wearing contacts all along than those who get their first prescription when age necessitates reading glasses.

Yesterday on the day-long news coverage of Hurricane Sandy on our NBC affiliate, the main sports anchor, Vai "The Tonga Kid" Sikahema (the first Tongan to play in the NFL) held brown plastic glasses in his hand most of the time, putting them on to read something off a sheet now and then. He's 50 years old now, and obviously he needs no help reading the teleprompter when he does the sports, as this was the first time I had ever seen him wear glasses. Being the main sycophant for the Eagles, he should wear glasses to see how bad the team has become. :)

Corey 30 Oct 2012, 00:24

She tweets they are bifocals (progressives obviously), but there must be some distance prescription as well. Otherwise it is hard to imagine why she would wear them throughout these broadcasts. Even older presbyopic television personalities (who don't need their glasses for distance) just wear them when needed. This is why you can often see their glasses on the table next to their monitors/tablets/notebooks. If she went straight from no glasses at all, to being hyperopic with an add as well, then she perhaps really needed them for a while.

The question is how long she will continue to wear them. If she is like most TV news or entertainment personalities in the US who start needing glasses (almost all female personalities, and many male ones as well), she should be in contacts soon. There are very few female tv personalities that "brand" themselves with their glasses as part of their look, except maybe those in tech or gaming. In fact what is really surprising is how quickly even the over-45 female TV personalities go to contacts ASAP. By that time what difference does it really make.

Slit 28 Oct 2012, 10:59


yes, i also saw it and in her twitter also she mentioned. she said "its bifocals, so 8 eyes." i believe it should be 6 eyes rather :)

i was watching her video closely on HD 1080 trying to spot the outline of face through lens to judge the RX. very hard, seems plano almost. but if we go by her word, it can be plano top with progressive add. 34 is a good age to start off with plano tops and progressive add, so no steriotyping allowed by age 40 because she already wear glasses!

she is definitely worth to keep under the radar to watch out for any sighting of the RX of the specs.


Soundmanpt 28 Oct 2012, 10:32

Someone mentioned that Erin Andrews tweeted that she now wears bifocals so with any luck we may be seeing her wearing glasses much more often now. It could be she can't or doesn't want to wear contacts. For some time she has been spotted on the field either with her glasses on or in her hand. her glasses don't appear to be very strong. I think its great that there are several very attractive female reporters wearing glasses on the air. I'm sure even more will follow there lead.

Jenna in glasses was in Law and Order SVU episode "Manhattan Vigil" which just aired: October 24, 2012.

On the show her appearance was very brief--she was seen on a TV screen as the stars watched video of an old news report from a crime scene--she was the reporter doing the interview. I wonder if the "fact" that this interview was supposed to have occurred 10 years earlier was part of decision to have her wear the glasses.

Also, the videos from her report of the whole guest star experience which are on the TODAY show website offer much more opportunity to see her in her specs.

Revolver 26 Oct 2012, 11:04

Have been watching Jenna ever since she's been on Today, especially Sunday mornings when she co-hosts with Lester Holt. Early on she was wearing her glasses a couple of times, got a look at them, they appear to be low minus with a little bit of cyl. Or maybe a lot of cyl, but definitely minus. And a few weeks later she was outside and tried to look at something far away, squinted, and made an offhand comment she couldn't make it out because she didn't have her glasses on. Never seen them since, so assumed she went to contacts.

Anyone know the name of the SVU segment she was in? Would like to see if I can find it on the internet.

Lv2c4i 22 Oct 2012, 09:18

Jenna Wolfe, NBC weekend TODAY anchor, will be doing a guest Cameo on Law and Order SVU this week and on the TODAY show she did a segment about her experience at the taping. On the show she will be wearing (her) glasses. There's video of the segment on the NBC news website and caps at TVHeads, tho neither have a good full face look at her in the glasses.

It's interesting that she is playing a reporter (which she is) and wears the specs as she does her report from a crime scene on SVU. However, she doesn't wear her glasses on her regular anchor job. Wonder how that decision was made?

She is a woman who is much more attractive in glasses (she wears a fairly stylish pair) than "bare-eyed."

Charissa (pronounced "Karissa") Thompson has been an ice-level reporter for NHL games (back when there was an NHL, but that's for another thread). I do recall seeing her wearing glasses with black plastic frames once or twice, possibly because of contact lens problems. Had she worn them for a Flyers' game, that would have been for a better look at all of the handsome guys on the team.

Varifocals - this is interesting, as I read sometime ago that she used to have a prescription of -14.5 - note the "used to" words, as I had read that she had some form of correction to eradicate her severe myopia. I was very suprised at this, as I know people that are around -8/-9 who can't have laser surgery due to their relatively high prescription.

I wonder how she has come down -3.5 diopters, or if this has been incorrectly reported!

Either way, I would have loved to have seen in her glasses

She looks good in black but that dress would look better if the neck was curved rather than straight and the material wasn't so shiny. A different black dress would have been better. A lot of people probably like the dress but not me. It looks like she's wearing a black bin bag. Her good looks and cool glasses make up for it.

After watching your linked "YouTube" of Clarissa Thompson wearing her glasses while on air and I noticed some other videos other as well and one that caught my attention was one where she did a split on camera. Very impressive. I am curious what her own sports history might be. Does anyone know if she was an active player in sports? Or was she maybe a cheerleader.

Carrie 14 Oct 2012, 12:39

Charissa Thompson is VERY sexy! I don't think we've got anyone like that presenting sports news in the UK. We do have quite a few female sports presenters on various channels but I'm not aware of any that wear glasses or that are quite as good looking as she is. (We even have a lesbian sports presenter - Clare Balding. She has a nice face but she doesn't wear glasses. She is probably in her 40s so might need reading glasses in a few years time. I do think she is an excellent presenter - she was the main anchor for the BBC's coverage of the Olympics and Channel 4's coverage of the Paralympics.)

I am a bit surprised that the top people at Fox Sports are okay with her wearing glasses on air. They only recently signed her away from another sports station and she is the queen of the female sports reporters and known as much for her sexy good looks as her reporting. Let's just hope they let her continue to wear her glasses. Nice to see that she must need them enough that she keeps them on during the whole show and isn't doing the on off thing like Wendy Nix did a lot of last year, but she too now seems more comfortable just keeping them on this year as well. I enjoy football and now the halftime is almost as good as the game itself with these young ladies wearing their glasses.

ESPN anchor/host,Charissa Thompson, has worn her glasses several times recently on the air. has some caps tho most are with her and the cohost so close-up pix of her and the spex are somewhat rare. Not sure why she's wearing them more often, but yesterday there were a couple of comments about her spex and the "smarty factor" (folks in glasses seeming to be more intelligent or smart).

Another ESPN anchor, Wendi Nix, wore her glasses for the entire football scoreboard show a couple of Saturdays ago. Then this past weekend, they were no where to be seen. She had been anchoring with them nearby and taking them off and on as the show went along. Because of the format of the show, she is/was seldom seen up close either with or without the glasses.

NBC's Ann Curry returned to TV Friday evening as the host of the Dateline show. She was reporting from Aurora, CO and introduced the show--wearing glasses. She wore very large, black framed spex, which imho, while perhaps fashionable or trendy, they were no terribly flattering.

She introduced the show and then they began an initial pre-recorded segment about "The Evidence Whisperer". When she returned later to do her segments on the shooting, the glasses were gone. And, on the NBC website, I can't find video of her initial bespectacled appearance. One can hope they'll reappear as time goes on.

However, one wag suggested that wearing the spex were Her way of kinda saying to her bosses, "I'll do it MY way." after she'd gotten kinda screwed in her departing from the TODAY show.

Reminded me of her TODAY show predecessor, Katie Couric, who, the first time she appeared on the air wearing her glasses, wore them the entire show. Later she'd snatch 'em on and off as she needed them to read. Some said that first prolonged appearance was her reaction to the firing of a producer she'd worked with for many years.

Appreciate the vids of Darlene Rodriguez and Jody Applegate wearing their spex. Video of Carol Costello wearing her glasses is available on CNN website (from 6/14).

We are not alone. Both Darlene and Carol engage in some spexspeak with their cohorts in these videos.

Darlene R, chats about her spex, her nearsightedness, and that her weather person, Lauren, in fact, bought her the glasses--not sure whether that means that Lauren actually choose the frtames, or, as mentioned, just got her a WarbyParker gift certificate. Now we wait for Lauren to wear her own spex doing the weather.

Carol Costello, in an interview with Paul Stanley of KISS, blushes somewhat as he mentions her glasses right off and asks her to snatch them off and shake her hair out. He repeats the request as the interview winds up and she agrees to take the glasses off, but not to do the hair bit.

All three of these women have chosen similar frame styles that complement their attractiveness--in fact, I think Carol C. looks younger in her spex.

Yesterday (6/14), CNN anchor Carol Costello wore her glasses during her 9-11 a.m. news shift. She's worn glasses before, but not for a while. These were a new frame style for her and seemed to be quite flattering. She was not on this morning and suspect "sightings" of her in glasses will be rare, but always a treat. I've found no caps of Carol in these new spex.

This morning on WNBC Channel 4 local news longstanding news anchor Darlene Rodriguez was wearing glasses with her own prescription for the first time! A nice brown plastic frame with slight cut-in. Years ago she had problems reading the telepromter and she also had tried her co-anchors glasses on one occaision on the air.

Matt Lauer from the Today show commented about her glasses and she said she was "a little nearsighted" and "was given a gift certificate for glasses from her traffic reporter Lauren Scala". Scala, also mildly myopic, has worn glasses for a number of years, and on rare occaision, on the air. Perhaps she was tired of Darlene borrowing her own glasses.

Another sad scene on U.S. network TV this morning, on the Today show they did a piece on Olympian Lolo Jones. During the setup it showed clips of Mary Carillo doing an interview for a sports network, a little bit dark and not in HD, Carillo was wearing very fashionable larger squarish black plastic rimmed glasses. But then they went ot the studio where she spoke with the Today interviewer about the original interview and that had good color, clarity, and closeups. But she wasn't wearing her glasses.

We'll never know whether it's the network suits telling them not to wear on camera, or if it was her choice, either way it is just downright irritating that a decision was made she looks better without them.

Mr Cockeyed 19 May 2012, 15:18

I have to add a few observations recently. Yesterday I was watching Ashleigh Banfield, and I could swear she is wearing progressive lenses. I see her lowering her eyes to find the mid range and near range. She always had plus lenses with astigmatism, and now as a gal in her early forties probably has progressive lenses.

Katie Couric seems to wear her plus lenses mostly for reading, but at her age may have progressives. The people with plus lenses seem to break the no glasses for female anchor hosts.

Matt Lauer needs multifocal lenses., and seems to be always taking his glasses on and off.

Let me hear some feedback, thanks.

Who is the reporter and on what station?

Soundmanpt 15 May 2012, 17:07

Great timing for this to come up because of what happened here at our local CBS station. For about a the last month or so I have been noticing that one of our part time anchors, a very attractive young lady seemed to be having a focusing problem when she was trying to read from the teleprompter. She is mainly the weekend anchor, but last night due to a bad school bus accident with a semi truck she was serving as a reporter on the scene. She was wearing glasses as far as I know for the first time on the air anyway. So now I can't wait for weekend to see if she will be doing the news wearing glasses now? Her glasses looked very weak so it could be her first pair. One thing for sure if she has been wearing contacts they must not have been strong enough anymore to cause her focus to be off.

The good news here anyway is that a good number of the female reporters and anchors often times appear on air wearing their glasses.

Mr Cockeyed 15 May 2012, 16:35

There is an unwritten law on Television, that female news people are only allowed to wear glasses if their contacts are problematic. They prefer that women wear contacts or lasik.

That is not the case with men. They all wear glasses and nothing it seems is said. I know first hand from a news anchor

woman from a cable tv station. I know she wears -8.50, but the viewing public does not know. Once she took off 3 days to clear a minor infection, the management would not allow her with glasses.

Does anyone have their viewpoints??

As to 'why she bothers', I suspect it is not a matter of trying to keep some sort of secret, but rather a matter of wardrobe choices. She doesn't wear the same earrings or shoes, so wearing her glasses is another "look" she can present to viewers from time to time.

Too bad so few media GWG have a wardrobe of frames that they switch out from one day to the next. Katie Couric used to have a variety she wore on the TODAY show, but she seems to have settled on one frame style in recent pix.

puts them on at times. So far she has worn two different pairs--one on Monday and a second pair Tuesday and Wednesday, tho no one seems to have posted caps of her wearing them. Both pairs are the fashionable "nerd" glasses, very front-and-center, but not real becoming in my opinion. I'd like to see her pull a "prettier" pair out of her collection before the week is over.

Heard a radio interview with Rachel Maddow yesterday:

The host (who is bespectacled, by the way) asked Rachel why she looks so different in her regular show (contact lenses and business attire) compared to her appearances on, for instance, late-night TV (glasses and jeans). Her answer was that she wanted to be as neutral-looking as possible in her show, so that the focus is on the guest and the topic and not on her. In other words, she doesn't want people to be distracted by her glasses. I wouldn't mind being distracted, but it makes sense.

Interesting that you said that. Many reports have stated that she indeed was doing much reading and was even learning 4 languages. Not something I would have any way of knowing, but I doubt the lighting was the best. Now with her release she is busy writing a book. I am surprised that there have been no pictures of her wearing glasses. I guess she could have gotten contacts but in an intervue she commented she had no problem with wearing glasses but was more fearful she might go blind.

I just saw where Amanda Knox signed a book deal worth 4 million dollars about her the murder of her room mate while in Italy. She was convicted of the murder and was sentenced to 26 years, but there was little evidence and after 4 years the courts reviewed her case and she was released. While in prison her eyesight became rather bad and she was having much trouble seeing distances. In one report she did get glasses, but to date there has been no pictures of her wearing glasses. Has anyone seen any pictures of her wearing glasses either in jail or since she got home?

Savanah Caps. Yesterday she was remarking that she thought a close up pic of a lobster was the trantula from an earlier segment and said she was having a bad day and was wearing her glasses too, and made a gesture ( cap -43) so it seems there is a need for them. Anyway, these frames apear to be different than two weeks ago. She ROCKS the glasses!!!!

Revolver 14 Feb 2012, 10:13

And on Today, an interesting very quick shot of Savannah. The cast was on the Plaza in front of the crowd hyping their next show segments, the camera panned up from her shoes to her face and she turned quickly in to the cast. There was just a flash of the light catching the front of her lenses, with the reflection showing almost a plano base curve, probably a one or two base as her rx isn't strong enough to warrant a plano.

Savannah is a fine example of a good looking glasses wearing woman. Thanks for the caps--I found some on TVHeads, but they are taken down quickly, and that may be where those below came from.

Savannah had previously appeared in a very simple cat-eye shaped pair of dark framed glasses which seemed a bit small for her face--maybe she'd had 'em for a while.

She has now recently appeared in two other (likely newer) frames. A week or so back she wore the kinda way-farer, "nerd" frames, which while currently stylish, I do not find particularly flattering on her (or anyone else for that matter).

Now, she has worn this frame that I think is more attractive than the "nerd" frames, tho again, I wonder about who is advising these women on their choices, as I think she might have had some even more attractive options. However, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder."

Alert! Savannah Guthrie is wearing her glasses again on the NBC Today Show, and this is a different pair than last time, it's the 2d or possibly 3d I've seen her wear. Slightly larger & got a decent look at her scrip, think it might be higher than estimated before, perhaps -4.00 or higher.

Kind of sad though, she's wearing them with the rest of the cast as it's done live, but the story she did was taped and she wasn't wearing them and there were several closeups.

Last week Fox Business News anchor, Lori Rothman wore her glasses for several days. They seemed to have a fairly substantial prescription and looked good on her. However, this week she is back to bare-eyed (probably wearing contacts).

On ABC Good Morning America, Elizabeth Vargas is subbing as co-host(perhaps all week). She has kept her glasses close at hand. Yesterday (12/26), they came back from a break and her partner referred to her, with her glasses still on, as the "bespeckled" Elizabeth Vargas. She looked up with embarrassment, snatched the spex off her face, and mentioned being "blind without them", put them on again for a second and then took them off and kept them off. It kinda seems like a vanity issue to me.

NBC reporter Kristen Welker has been reporting for several days from Hawaii wearing her glasses. She is covering President Obama vacationing there and can be seen on the TODAY show and on various MSNBC morning shows. I wonder if the time difference and her having to do the reports in the middle of the nite contribute to her wearing her glasses?

Soundmanpt 16 Dec 2011, 21:27


Mariya is one very of the hottest young ladies working as a reporter that I have seen in a long time. It is nice that unlike the women here in the US that only on occasion can be seen wearing their glasses, she is seen wearing glasses in nearly every picture and only a couple of her without glasses. More interesting it appears that her glasses are quite weak. I looked hard to even tell if they even had any rx in them. After much looking she appears to have a slight need for them for distance. My guess is they help her see the prompter a little easier. And who knows maybe she actually enjoys wearing glasses. They do look nice on her.

Do you know if she has been wearing glasses on the air for very long? It looks like she is wearing the same glasses in all the pictures so it could be her first pair even.

I wonder, too, about the factors that impact the decision whether or not to wear glasses onscreen. Like Revolver, I check around to see what there is to see (Erica Hill, Savannah Guthrie, etc.) and upon seeing no specs, I then go to my otherwise favorites.

As to whether the producer (or other boss) impacts the choice, I do recall hearing Kyra Phillips speaking once of how much she hated her glasses--called the lenses coke-bottles. While she didn't say, I suspect that she avoids wearing her glasses whenever she can. So, it may be the wearers' own opinions and tastes as much as any pressure from others.

However, here and there, now and then, we are treated to the spectacle of them in spectacles. Viva la difference!

Thanks for finding and posting the You Tube of Joanna Wagstaff. She does not disappoint, quite attractive to say the least. Judging by the cut-in on her glasses I think Spec 4 ever is very close to say she looks to be around -3.00. I think she could make watching the weather much more enjoyable.

Revolver 06 Dec 2011, 09:03

Specs4: we have a natural tendency to blame the bosses when an attractive on-air personality doesn't wear glasses, just as we did with Erika Hill on CBS. It may not be them, may be the personality herself, never forget the quote "oh, vanity, thy name is woman". Myself, I vote with my remote. In the mornings I tune into CBS until Ms. Hill comes on, and if she's not wearing, Click! Over to the Today Show on NBC.

BTW, how are you able to get CBC Toronto in the U.S. desert southwest?

specs4ever 06 Dec 2011, 07:21

I was watching the CBC Toronto morning weather a couple of days ago, and noticed that an attractive young lady was the presenter. It took a second look before I could see that she was wearing rimless glasses, and after watching for a while I made a guess that they were possibly around a -3D. I figured that her bosses had told her that if she must wear glasses then she had better wear a very unobtrusive pair until she cloud go back to contacts. However I caught the same channel again this morning and she was wearing a rather bold dark brown plastic framed pair. I thought that they looked much nicer on her. The weather lady is Joanna Wagstaff, if anyone else has managed to catch a glimpse of her.

Counting down the days until Wurm closes up shop!!!!!!!

Aubrac 03 Dec 2011, 05:38

Maybe not the right thread but was just watching Saturday Kitchen on BBC1.

The two guest chefs were both wearing glasses and the guest was Sarah Millican, a comedienne wearing a nice pair of black semi-rimless glasses with I think a low plus and cylinder correction.

During a brief preview before the programme started, the host chef James Martin introduced his guests, then said he was feeling a bit left out and produced a pair of glasses from somewhere and put them on - however he didn't wear them in the actual show.

Hansel - happens to the best of us! I checked out Antiques Roadshow, which isn't on my regular viewing list. I noticed a distinct lack of eye make up which suggests to me an eye infection. I'm no specs fashionista but I'd say she should get a pair that are more flattering.

Soundmanpt 17 Oct 2011, 12:33

Yes it was a very pleasant way to wake up this morning seeing Erica hill wearing glasses again. I tuned in in the middle of the show did she maybe say anything about why she was wearing them. She used to wear them quite often and I think some network bosses must have told her to loose the glasses. Suddenly she stopped wearing them and this is firs sighting in months. She must have had a contact problem and no other option. I'm sure she can' see the prompter without them.

Regarding Amanda Knox I don't want to seem unkind but I think a lot of the story may be exaggerated to get the sympathy vote.

It is always possible that she was already slightly shortsighted and during her time in prison this has increased as would be normal for any person her age who has not had regular eye tests.

Lv2c4i 07 Oct 2011, 08:07

Hope to see Amanda in spex soon, even as we must be sympathetic with her ordeal--assuming she is, as adjudicated currently, innocent.

Certainly innocent is U.S. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords who has appeared 3 times since her shooting, wearing different glasses each time. I think her most recent pair is the most flattering and attractive, tho that may be due to her overall recovery and looking better all the way around.

The news yesterday also featured another woman who became news through unfortunate circumstances, Anita Hill. She was shown giving a talk (at Georgetown?) wearing glasses. It was unclear whether they were readers she was using to read her text or they were full-time spex.

Brian  05 Oct 2011, 22:44

Here is one more on her vision: "Her health is badly affected and she is having serious vision problems. She only sees things close-up and doesn't see things a long way away.

"She has been doing eye exercises, where she looks out of the window at things in the distance. She doesn't mind if she has to wear glasses, but her big worry is that her vision will go.


Brian  05 Oct 2011, 22:42

We'll likely see Amanda Knox wearing glasses soon..

See blurb from article: Amanda has lost nearly 20 pounds in prison. As an athlete used to running, rock climbing, hiking, and biking, she finds the physical inactivity a unique form of punishment. Her hair is thinning and she has become increasingly nearsighted, but prison authorities won’t allow her family to supply her with vitamins.

CNN anchorperson, Randi Kaye, is wearing her glasses here for the 3rd day as she hosts the early afternoon news show. She has a subtle pair of cat-eyed glasses that fit her quite well. Not terribly stylish or fashionable, but attractive and well-suited for her face and her role as anchor.

Mr Cockeyed 23 Jun 2011, 10:09


Yes, I agree, the producers or directors of news programming seen to desire young shapely women, naturally without glasses. I think the intense television studio lighting could overly accent thick or strong glasses as in heavy plus lenses. I think slight or moderate minus glasses with a modern stylish frame would be a tremendous asset for a young news presenter. To add anti reflective lenses would create a perfect picture, with the strong studio lighting.

I guess its just a dream, because in the USA as well as the UK, they have similar feelings about ladies on air with glasses

lentifan 21 Jun 2011, 19:21

Mr Cockeyed

I don't think the TV moguls are all that more understanding here. There has been recent publicity about the trend to drop female presenters when they reach their sell-by date which seems to be much younger than for male presenters.

It is clear that attractive-looking young females are preferred to males for news-reading, weather forecasts etc. However, your chances if you are female and not conventionally attractive-looking are zero. I don't think wearing glasses is yet considered to be compatible with being conventionally attractive. Kate Silverton is the only exception I can think of.

The fuss about Fiona Bruce will not have helped in this regard. If only some TV producers (or is it director?) would take the plunge, they might be pleasantly surprised.

Incidentally, this is not the first time Fiona Bruce has appeared in glasses. The last time I thought she looked good.

Mr Cockeyed 21 Jun 2011, 09:18

lentifan, Millhouse,

Thanks so much for your great explanation of the NHS frames. We still have somewhat similar frames here in the USA for people on Medicaid, a form of welfare for lower income or no income folks. I still crack up when watching older UK films, and lots of folks seem to be wearing something similar to those NHS frames.

I think Fiona Bruce just selected rather plain frames, lots of gals do, and her main reason wearing glasses was an eye infection she could not wear her contacts. Here in the USA there is still an unwritten law that most network news presenters don't wear glasses, although they are easing that unwritten law.

I personally knew at one time a news anchor lady, and I know she wore something like minus 9's, but was never allowed on air with glasses. She just stayed off the air. i feel everyone should have freedom of choice, Glasses or Contact lenses

I must admit in the UK, they are much more understanding, about news presenters with either glasses or contacts

lentifan 20 Jun 2011, 14:01

The NHS frames Mr Cockeyed saw in the 1960s are no longer supplied by the NHS. As far as I know, they now supply ordinary commercial frames at the cheaper end of the scale.

The frames Fiona Bruce was wearing, whatever you think of them, are definitely not from that NHS range, which had lenses which were round, or almost so. They were in two ranges, one with wire frames and one with plastic. The most common colours were black and brown, but I think the plastic frames were available in light brown and perhaps also clear. The wire frames were also available in pink and white for little girls.

The wire frames made a bit of a come-back about 15 years ago, sometimes in larger sizes, as was the fashion of the time.

Millhouse 20 Jun 2011, 09:43

- Mrcockeyed.

Here in the UK we are able, as far am I'm currently aware, to get glasses and eye exams via the NHS free of charge if you are on benefits (welfare for our US friends) or your prescription is above -9 or + 9 I think, or you are at school/ student etc. In the 1960's as now they do not make the frames very appealing- otherwise people would opt for them on a massive scale-thereby costing the UK health care system millions in free glasses & eyecare. Its far more likely though in Fiona's case she has an eye injury or infection from CL use and she just is using them for the emergency use rather than spend ÂŁ300-ÂŁ400 on a pair she'd only wear for the odd night home alone. Then again she could have very poor tast in eyewear.

Mr Cockeyed 20 Jun 2011, 09:23

After reading the piece on Fiona Bruce, can any of the UK glasses fans explain to me if those horrible NHS glasses still exist. I was in the UK in 1966, and saw those horrible frames, but thought by now they were eliminated. Any feedback will be appreciated, Thanks

Melyssa 18 Jun 2011, 09:45

What she should do is wear her glasses all the time on the air, and if the stuffed shirts (or skirts) don't like it, she should tell them to stuff it.

Hansel 18 Jun 2011, 06:03

Similar outpourings the last time she donned her specs. Perhaps she was starting to feel her star was on the wane and she thought a little extra publicity wouldn't go amiss.

Cactus Jack 30 Apr 2011, 09:19

Helicopters create their own dust storm when they take off, hover, or land, even on hard surfaces. The only time they don't is when they are close to a water surface. Then, they generally create a spray. Dust storms and contact lenses don't mix well. A speck of dust under a contact when you are flying an inherently unstable machine near the ground would be an un-necessary hazard.

The fact that a person needs vision correction is not necessarily disqualifying for flying helicopters, airplanes, or space shuttles, but it is often used in situations where there are more applicants than available positions - it is easily measurable and not arguable.


Julian 30 Apr 2011, 04:32

I understand from past press reports that he wears contact lenses most of the time, but (if I've got it right) there is some regulation that requires him to change into specs when piloting a helicopter. There was a moment on yesterday's TV coverage of him on duty where we were looking over his left shoulder and he was wearing them. I just think he looks great in specs - but then I think that about most guys ::)

Hansel 29 Apr 2011, 14:48

Given that we know Prince William does wear specs, as he drove the Aston minus specs, do we assume he was wearing lenses for the day, or was he driving illegally?

(With all the roads closed for the occasion, normal rules probably didn't apply!)

Earlier this week, several news shows reported on a study that indicated that persons wearing glasses were perceived to be more intelligent. The report prompted several anchors to respond with their glasses on.

On ABC's Good Morning America, Robin Roberts donned her glasses, a small, round wire-rimmed pair and said she felt she looked like "Henrietta Potter." Since then those specs have been alongside her on the anchor desk. I'm mystified as to why, if she doesn't like her look in those specs, why she didn't choose another frame.

She really doesn't look nearly as good now, her eyes have a funny look about. Maybe she isn't wearing contacts and is struggling to see things. But without a doubt she looked better with glasses.

I agree with you both about the Daily Mail, they regularly make misinformed, or untrue statements, and this one was a typical hark back to the era when glasses were frowned upon.

A ridiculous comment and article purely created because they had bought this photo from a pap company and had to create some text to go with it.

I have almost given up reading this newspaper as it almost become more like a middle class gossip magazine than a newspaper and more often then not they get their facts completely wrong - I read three articles on Saturday they had incorrect facts in them! This coming from a newspaper distributed worldwide shouldn't be the case, I guess it's down to poorly researched articles, and a lack of editorial reviews.

Eclipse 19 Dec 2010, 14:27

I saw the same article about Kate Silverton and thought it was a particularly stupid article from the Daily Fail. The temperature that day was around freezing so I'm not surprised she was wrapped up warmly. I've seen her wearing much heavier framed glasses than that on TV recently and she was snapped with her head down reading a text and wearing a hat so of course not much of her face is going to be showing. It's not exactly newsworthy that she was wrapped up warm and wearing glasses.

The offending article is here

Aubrac 19 Dec 2010, 07:23

I can see how some people may be put off wearing glasses when newspaper reporters often make such silly remarks just to get attention.

In yesterdays Daily Mail there was a picture of lovely Kate Silverton out side on the day before her wedding. She was well muffled up against the cold in Ugg boots, long coat and cap, hardly the sort of winter wear to make anyone look sexy, and the headline was 'Is it the bride or the groom', there was also a reference to 'Kate, her face hidden by heavy glasses'.

She was actually wearing a pair of fairly light framed semi-rimless glasses, wirh her picture taken as she was reading a text on her phone.

Seems reporters must distort things just to make their rather pathetic column a little more interesting.

Sharp eyed OO's might note that Savannah Guthrie appeared on the Daily Rundown this a.m. with new specs. She's worn glasses before, but these seem to be a new pair. Her previous pair was a cat-eye style that was less flattering to her than other styles could be. They were somewhat dated and maybe not the best shape and/or size.

The new spex are a bit larger and more square in shape. They look better, more contemporary, and maybe portend her wearing them more regularly?

There was a picture of Hillary Clinton in yesterday's newspapers wearing the tortoiseshell glasses with what looked quite a significant minus prescription. So the stories that she has had Lasik or similar seem wide of the mark.

Makes her look much more attractive.

Why would you think low plus when at a sporting event and looking at action several hundred feet away? Makes no sense...

Aubrac 24 Nov 2010, 09:45

Michelle Obama

Maybe a first time outing in specs. Could only speculate on a low plus with some cylinder. Don't know if it is Steffi Graf but she too looks like a low plus.

gwgs 24 Nov 2010, 03:29

Looks like she's rather self conscious of wearing glasses, maybe her first time wearing them out, or a new frame?

It's funny how any mention of a government representative, elected or otherwise, always devolves into a political discussion, if one dares to call it that.

All I said was that Hillary Clinton was an ugly troll. It has nothing to do with her politics or party affiliation, or even her age. Just my personal opinion.

Like a previous poster requested, can we please stay away from politics and stick to posting photos of women with glasses?

Melyssa 22 Nov 2010, 14:11

A former friend of mine likely voted for the McCain/Palin ticket in 2008 because he thought Palin was pretty. Then again, that same nimrod voted for Bush the First because he thought Barbara the First was pretty -- and he's a registered Democrat.

Observer 22 Nov 2010, 12:54

I always thought that it was fitting that Tina Fey played the part of Sarah Palin on SNL. Both have made it big wearing glasses with either no prescription or next to no prescription.

Re: Palin 22 Nov 2010, 09:51

I agree that Mrs. Palin is better to look at then Mrs. Obama. I can only hope that Sarah Palin does NOT decide to run for anything else. As for the Obama's putting there life on hold!!! Come on, this is like winning the lottery for these people. All politicions have an ego that drives them toward this life.

Now, now, boys!

Mrs Palin's persona may be rather unattractive (and her supposed appeal to the voters rather baffling to us in Britain), but physically she is undoubtedly attractive and the glasses must have something to do with that.

IMHO Mrs Clinton looks better in the rimless than the tortoiseshells.

And for a non-GWG, Mrs Obama looks pretty stunning to me.

Equating the First Lady to a Pekingese dog? I think you are sadly mistaken... the real ugly ass "bitch" is Palin.

still 21 Nov 2010, 17:07

I guess you can read a Rohrshach any way you like, so your Pekingese is my beautiful woman. But factually, Michelle Obama is not an America hater; I know that the press ran with an old quotation of hers, during the election campaign for 2008. Even so, she tried to explain and repudiate that remark; I for one believe her. Any person who puts her life on hold for 4 to 8 years probably loves her country quite a bit; finding fault with one's country is not the same as hating it. I am a proud Canadian, but you should hear me criticizing my country, and hating my government! Sometimes you criticize those you love, even more than you would the others.

This may belong in or cross reference with literary references, but from a book about the secret service there is a short paragraph where George W. had to lead Laura to the White House bunker when there was a report of an un-identified aircraft in the Capitol airspace. It was shortly after 9-11. It goes on to say that Laura is virtually blind without correction and wears hard lenses for correction. I have never seen Laura in glasses, but she is classy enough not to have her face plastered in the media morning, noon, and night. By the way, the secret service loved her and she is just as genuine in private as her public persona.

Aubrac 19 Nov 2010, 04:26

On BBC Breakfast TV there was a clip of all the female news readers learning a dance routine for a show to raise funds for Children in Need.

The lovely Kate Silverton was one and although sans glasses for her dance practice, was wearing during the two or three face to face interviews during the rehearsal, a nice pair of quite large black framed glasses.

Haven't seen her wearing those during actual news presenting.

Soundmanpt 18 Nov 2010, 14:08


It is very common if she had it many years ago that she may again be needing a slight rx. Also often times reading glasses may be needed, but her's don't look like that at all.

If someone gets the surgery and they are only 18 or 19 and their eyes are still changing the lasik won't last. In fact many lasik centers now offer a warranty that if your eyes change again to -1.25 (that's the min.) they will do something called a touch-up and bring you back to 20/20. Don't get me wrong most that have had it done are very happy. One young lady had it done about 7 years ago and was corrected to 20/10 from being -5.50 with astigmatism. She was better than perfect for 3 years and slowly her vision started slipping back, she has stabalized at 20/50 and wears weak glasses. But as she says much better than before.

The biggest downside is the cost, between $4,000.00 and $7,000.00 for a good doctor.

Clare 18 Nov 2010, 13:56

Can't imagine why Sarah Palin would wear glasses if she'd had lasik.

Soundmanpt 18 Nov 2010, 13:50


How did you hear that she had lasik? I have never heard that. I do agree her glasses seem very low rx if anything at all. Funny that she acts like she can't see without them and wears them for everything mountain climbing, fishing etc. Shooting a gun okay everyone should have some eye protection and if she is a tiny bit near sighted they might help. When did she get the surgery?

Dude 18 Nov 2010, 12:54

Palin's glasses now have a next to nothing prescription. I would have liked to see a few morte pictures of her before she had lasik

Jennifer 18 Nov 2010, 10:46

Have all of you noticed how Sarah Palin always wears her glasses. She's never seen without them. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton wear contacts and glasses. Both are very different personalities and very different prescriptions. I still think Sarah's glasses have become part of her persona. She'll never be seen without them. So many men think she's sexy with those glasses.

Aubrac 18 Nov 2010, 10:29

I remember seeing Hilary wearing glasses all the time about twenty years ago and would say her scrip was -12 or more then. Her daughter Chelsea also used to wear glasses that were about -8.

She may have returned to FT spex if she has passed the limit for bi-focal contacts (+2.50)and has to wear plus glasses a lot of the time in any case.

nc 18 Nov 2010, 09:16

I would agree that Hillary is at least a minus 10. The prescriptions sunglasses she was wearing were extemely thick!

Therouteur 17 Nov 2010, 18:16

In fact Hillary Clinton was in Australia recently. She got off her plane wearing prescription shades and her prescription is MASSIVE. Old pics from the pre hi index days indicate this but she must be at least minus 7

Interesting find Therouteur - I had always known that Sarah "sexy" Palin had worn prescription glasses as although look very plano there were a couple of campaign photos I saved on my pc which showed refraction in the lenses - clearly this wouldn't be possible with planos!

There's a guy called Simon Jack who presents the business news on BBC1's Breakfast TV, in the last couple of weeks he's appeared with glasses, at first I presumed he was a contacts wearer with an issue but its gone on. I'm not sure but I think it may be a plus prescription, or maybe astigmatism I'm not sure. I'm sure others in the UK will have noticed too.

Other waitings besides BBC.

About a week ago I noticed that Martha McCallum of Fox's a.m. line-up clearly had a pair of dark cat-eyed specs on the small table beside her. One of these days she'll pick 'em up and put 'em on (tho they aren't always there handy on the table).

Likewise Chris Jansing.

Erica Hill seems to be switching regularly between bare-eyed and bespectacled. Mondays have been a glasses day--perhaps a symptom of the usual 'monday morning' doldrums?

And there are others as well for whom we wait to don the glasses waiting there beside of these days...

smudgeur 06 Nov 2010, 03:14

Anyway the contacts flirtation seems to have gone away, maybe she has astigmatism and found toric lenses difficult to get on with.

Yeah, not sure about them Smudgeur! I saw yesterday on the news and she was wearing yet another new pair I hadn't seen before, they were also not one of the two pairs detailed in your photos!

Anne Robinson and her must be having a competition to see who has the most pairs of glasses as I read an interview with Anne Robinson recently where she said she has almost an obsession with glasses and has over 40 pairs! Well Ms Silverton must be into the double digits with her collection.

Yes I noticed that she wore them all day long, or at least until the late college game was over. A while back she wore them and I noticed something that time and it happened again today. They went in for closeups of the 2 male anchors often, but I never saw them go in for a closeup of her either time. I think it was last week when she had them in her hand all the time, but she never put them on while on the air. They went in for several closeups of her that day. Do you think she has told them not to show close ups of her wearing glasses? As we all know she looks very cute and she doesn't seem to have a problem with people knowing she needs them, but she seems camera shy about bsing seen close up.

Hi Lv2c4i, yes there are a couple of easy ways of capping images from videos online.

You can either press the "Print scrn" button your keyboard, this will copy this printed screen image onto your "clipboard" - aka the computer's virtual memory. Open your art program and either do CTRL and V together, or Edit and Paste, and this will load this image onto your screen in the applicable programme. Your computer will only remember your last printed screen so it is important to do this step every time.

Alternatively, you can download a free programme called Irfan View which will let you cap images automatically inside this specific function, or allow you to cap what you want via shortcuts on your keyboard. Give it a go and let me know if you need any further assistance.

She must have been having some real bad problems with her contacts because she had been wearing her glasses for quite a while untill Maggie came back and she went back to only reading the news and she was back in contacts for a few days. Now again she is back to glasses. It seems now that she has exposed herself as needing glasses she would ditch the contacts anyway now. As you said Harry Smith wears his all the time as does the weatherman. Maggie doesn't so you would think she would want to be different than her anyway.

Lv2c4i 29 Sep 2010, 13:03

Near the end of this morning's Early Show, they showed a brief clip of Erica Hill on the preceding evening's "The Good Wife". In the clip from the show, she was also wearing her glasses and one of the other hosts commented on that. Erica said, "Yes. I was still bothered by my eye irritation so there was no other choice."

So, the irritation apparently had been the reason for glasses on her for awhile. Now, it seems she wears (or not) somewhat on whim.

And they mentioned she is going to be on "The Good Wife" again.

Minusfive 29 Sep 2010, 07:19

Erica Hill was bespectacled today on CBS Morning show! I really cannot understand why she does not wear them every day. I mean Harry Smith does. Why not her?

Her Black frames really seem to flatter her eyes. They just fit her perfectly and flatter her very well!

Soundmanpt 22 Sep 2010, 11:20


I saw that show with several female models and herself trying on glasses and the gentleman was telling her how to pick the correct frame for your face shape. Maggie said she didn't need glasses as I recall. She did look really nice wearing them though. I wonder if having her 2 nd baby may have changed her vision, but so for no signs of glasses.

The one I keep watching to see if she ever shows up wearing glasses is Jenna Lee of Fox News. She used to be on Fox Business Show. At that time they had the CEO of "Eyebuy Direct in the studio and he was pointing out about the value in buying glasses on-line. Actually Jenna's co-host was the one doing the interview and Jenna seemed to be not paying any attention. Suddenly she interupted and asked the CEO if his glasses were real. He said they were and she asked to she them, he took them off and handed them to her, she without hesitation put them on and started looking around. She commented that she didn't need glasses but then found, and commented that she vould see the teleprompter much better and even said maybe she does need glasses. She kept them on and still seemed very surprised how well she could see. The CEO even made a comment about fixing her up.

From that experence I would be shocked if she didn't make an eye appointment within the week. Of course she well could be wearing contacts these days. Has anyone seen her on-air wearing glasses?

Lv2c4i 22 Sep 2010, 08:49

For the frame-fanatic fringe of the OO world, the recently returned co-host of CBS Early Show, Maggie Rodriguez, did appear in glasses a bit back during a show segment on choosing the right glasses. It was titled "Love Your Glasses" and videos of it can be found online.

Lv2c4i 22 Sep 2010, 08:46

Will she or won't she? Erica Hill had been wearing her glasses each day as she subbed as co-host on CBS The Early Show. This week the regular co-host returned from maternity leave and Erica returned to her role as the news reader for the program. And her eyewear?

On Monday, the first day, she was bare-eyed. Then, yesterday she was sporting her specs. And today it was bare-eyed again. Will she keep us guessing?

Erica is quite attractive either with or without so we'll see what she chooses in the days ahead.

Lots of comments on the press about Chiles and Bleakley and the new ITV morning TV show. I have only seen a couple of minutes, but certainly, Chiles, who is a known specs wearer and Bleakley seem to be leaning forward and peering towards the autocue.

Lv2c4i 02 Sep 2010, 07:28

Jennifer, I agree. Erica's frames are stylish and flattering. It shows the difference subtle and slight changes can make: these frames have the slightest uplift at the temples--more flattering to her than either straight or frames that are curved downward (rounded).

I thought her frames might even have arms that came into the middle of the frame (rather than at the top corner) but a side view shows that that isn't the case.

Wonder why she's been wearing them all week now? New style statement? Resting eyes from contacts? Preparing for lasik or similar?

SoCal 01 Sep 2010, 17:07

If you read through the interview (page 2) Maddow gives her reason for not wearing her specs on the air.

Surprised that no one has yet commented on Erica Hill's wearing her glasses on the CBS Evening news last Thursday and then on the morning show Friday.

CNN's John Roberts wore glasses this morning for much of his morning show with Kiran Chetry. Don't know if they had any "new eyewear" chat. He wore semi-rimless frames that seemed to make him look a bit older (unfortunately), but also more professional. Think I read he's engaged to Kyra Phillips, who also occasionally wears her spex and has had several different styles over the years. Maybe he should get some fashion advice from her.

Anjali Rau is a CNN Hong Kong anchor. I vary on what I think of her. She has moments of extreme hottedness but then the smart-arsed personality kicks in and the hormones go into reverse.


Yesterday she was wearing a pair of square brown plastics which appeared briefly to cancel out the personality. Shortly after which I concluded that they were props to make her look smart.

Nicky - we're not a political forum here so I won't go into this but my one line answer is that this increase is nothing in comparison to what Labour would have done if they were in power, and all of this is actually being done to solve the problems that the previous government got us into.

There's an old adage that rings VERY true - EVERY time Labour get in, they ruin the country, they get voted out a couple of terms later and the Conservatives are left with a mountain of debt and useless laws to sort out. Except this time they have to also satisfy the Lib Dems as they unfortunately in bed with them.

CNN's Anderson Cooper was cohost on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' yesterday morning and he made a big deal about his new glasses. He tried on two different pairs--they seemed the same frame just different colors--asking Kelly Ripa which was best. Her answer was neither.

There followed some of the usual glasses chat, passing around and trying on the glasses, Kelly modeling his spex and saying 'how blind are you', and another pair being passed around.

Then Kelly suggested that she take Anderson shopping for some better glasses and he agreed. They also suggested that cameras might come along and the excursion would be shown on the show sometime in the future. Who knows, Kelly might even get herself some new spex.

Bloomberg's Betty Lui captured on wearing her glasses again. There's about 10 different caps. On Reportercaps there is a thread with several caps of her as well and a brief discussion of her in glasses, one suggesting she needs another frame style. The caps on reportercaps are less attractive shots, but she is very attractive in some of the other caps on TVHeads.

CNN men love their reading glasses:

Joseph 19 May 2010, 22:50

From the All Things Anderson website:

"At one point he said he just had to get glasses for the first time and asked if we all wanted to see them. We of course said yes and he went jogging backstage to get them. When he came back he said he hadn't shown them to anyone before and he wanted our honest opinions and turned around to put them on. When he turned back we all immediately went "You're Clark Kent!". They are black plastic glasses that look like they could have been borrowed from Rachel Maddow if you've ever seen the kinds of glasses she wears. When he put them on he really did look like he was Clark Kent in disguise."

Presby L 19 May 2010, 21:06

AC looks like typical route for a newsreader.......always have the glasses on the desk, but seldom wear them, then more frequent wearing, but self conscious, -then using as an accessroy,and, if lucky, full time wear. Look at Katie Couric and Sue Hererra.....they both started like AC and now pretty much full time........hope AC joins the fold soon. He is 42, which is prime time for that first pair of reading glasses :)

Hey Nick, sorry for the delayed response, I've been on holiday for the last 9 days and this is the first chance I've had to view ES.

I'm glad to say we now have 3/4 of a Conservative government - history is being made for those of you who aren't aware that we have 1/4 of another party sharing the Government as no one won an absolute majority so they all had to haggle to get into power.

I grew up in Maggie Thatcher's time and can only say what a wonderful woman she was/is. If only those Labour gravy train, money grabbers thought about the country instead of themselves we wouldn't have got ourselves into this situation. But as usual, Labour ruin the country when they're in power, then it takes the Conservatives to bring it back to the way it was.

Back on track though about girls with glasses, I noticed a rather nice MP by the name of Heather Harper who is Conservative MP for Beaconsfield. She was doing an interview for the BBC wearing some rather trendy wide arm, with mesh detailing on the temples, these must be new as there aren't any photos of her wearing these frames on the net. There are others though if you want to look her up.

Melyssa 24 Mar 2010, 12:45

These manglers -- uh, managers -- need the Three Stooges treatment ("81C" if you know what I mean). Then they'll know what it's like for someone to have poor vision and be dependent on glasses.

soundmanpt 23 Mar 2010, 19:39

By the way this is not the case at all the Hooter's, I have been in several where the girls wear glasses to work in. This is just that manager being a jerk.

soundmanpt 23 Mar 2010, 19:36


That is a manager that has his head where the sun doesn't shine, if you know what I mean. He should be thrilled that a n anchor wants to wear glasses, it gives more credibility to her reports. It is apparent from her e-mail reply to you that she would much rather wear her glasses than contacts. That is another thought, maybe she doesn't use contacts or can't wear them? At any rate he needs to be fired.

That is like I have friend that works at Hooter's she got prescription glasses from me about a year ago. She attends college and wears her glasses all the time and is pretty dependent on them. Her store manager told her sometime ago that he would prefer her not wear glasses while working. She said she is okay with getting around the room, but if repeat customers come in she can't recognize them until they get real close and she can't watch TV because it is a blur for her.

smudgeur 23 Mar 2010, 16:37

I e-mailed the BBC Look East newsreader, Jenny Kirk, to ask why she had stopped wearing glasses on air.

and was surprised to get the following reply:

"Thank you for your email.

I'm glad you like my specs - and sorry that I'm not wearing them any


I have been asked by my manager not to wear them on screen.

If you'd like to start a campaign to get them reinstated I'd be most

Meredith Vieira again wore her glasses on the TODAY show yesterday. And last week she posted a vlog segment(check about her wearing her glasses. She said she had a 'sty' and would be wearing a different pair of glasses each day for 2 weeks.

Well, there were 2 days last week and then yesterday.

She did, however, show her current collection of frame styles. She has a dozen or moire different pairs and she said she enjoyed the variety and changing styles.

gwgs 19 Mar 2010, 07:37

Soundmanpt - do a search on and you'll see some photos of her I uploaded (I have several different accounts and can't remember which one they're on) and you should see a couple of shots that show she wears prescription lenses - as I seem to recall, this is either shot behind her (view through her lenses) or cut in (if you can call it that - I can't even remember whether she is a plussie or a myope!!) from front shot of her in front of a large crowd giving a speech

Even if Sarah Pain wore glasses like mine, she'd still be a you-know-what. :)

soundmanpt 18 Mar 2010, 09:20


I have an interesting question, has anyone seen a recent picture anywhere of Sarah Palin without her glasses on? She is at least different in that many celebs and women in the spotlight would do anything not to be caught wearing glasses if a camera was around not too long ago. One would have to think that at some point she had to decide that she would be taken more serious if she wore glasses, even if she really doesn't need them. I have never seen an rx for her, only some mention about the stylist that brought her several frames to choose from. If I recall she even had her family help pick them for her.

Jennifer 18 Mar 2010, 08:45

Soundmanpt, unfortunately some people wear glasses to look intelligent. There's that stereotype that a person wearing glasses must be smart. In Sarah Palin's case, it has become part of her image. I've heard men refer to her looking like the "slutty libraian" type. She may be trying to look like an intellectual to give credibility to what she says. She's the classic Hollywood stereotype of woman wearing glasses in movies.

kisal 18 Mar 2010, 05:50

As Melyssa and others were saying, smarts and glasses do seem to go together as in this story about a very pretty medical resident in DC:

You have to watch a short ad before the pictures start, but I think it is worth the wait.

soundmanpt 17 Mar 2010, 16:15


So then where do we rate Sarah Palin? She wears glasses full time, but what appears to be a very light scrip. Does that make her smart or just smarter than dumb? Just askin?

soundmanpt 17 Mar 2010, 16:08


So if I understand you, your saying that young ladies that just started wearing glasses and the ladies with very light prescriptions are on there way to be pretty smart and by the time there at -9.00 they are really smart? Okay i'll buy that.

Melyssa 17 Mar 2010, 12:53

There have been many Jeopardy contestants who have worn glasses on the show over the years, because unlike American Idle, Jeopardy contestants have to have smarts. Also, there has been a study or three indicating that bespectacled people are on the whole more intelligent than the others, and it's not a stereotype. Yours truly is a Magna Cum Laude college graduate. Politicians don't seem to wear glasses much. Just sayin'.

Unfortunately uncapped, but two somewhat rare sightings this past week.

Thursday morning Savannah Guthrie wore her glasses the entire hour of her MSNBC morning show. She tweeted that she had a cold medicine as she went into the White House--it set off the metal detector--so suspect that the cold was the reason for her being bespactacled that morning.

Then, CNN's Randi Kaye wore her glasses for a report she delivered (and was likely repeated) on some of the newcasts the past couple of days.

A few years back she sported some dark rimmed spex for nearly a week and I wondered if she'd then had lasik or something. But apparently not. The rimless glasses were hard to see, but she definitely was an entertaining gwg last nite.

Watched Around the World in 80 Days on BBC 1 yesterday. It is about different sets of celebrities travelling around the world using all means of transport except air, to raise momey for a charity.

Yesterday were BBC Breakfast News presenters Bill Turnbull and Louise Minchin who I have seen several times on screen wearing glasses but usually in contacts.

Only three shots of her wearing glasses, one especially nice with semi rimless rectangular frames with a scrip of at least -6, Bill wore readers a lot of the time.

Also on Beeb yesterday programme How To Look Good Naked, sponsored by Specsavers so a lot more than the usual number of spec wearers, focal person was girl wearing nice semi-rimless about -6 but also seen wearing a few other frame styles.

Nice that my wife was also wearing her glasses to watch the programmes.

I thought I had read here some while ago that Hillary Clinton had been lasicked. Very gratifying to see that she hasn't! On BBC World News last night were a couple of nice shots of her disboarding from her plane in Morocco sporting a rectangular pair of metal rims with a substantial minus Rx. She has been looking rather seedy recently, but was quite hot again for a while - only briefly, alas, for the specs had gone by the time of the next shot of her at her meeting!

ESPN sports reporter Erin Andrews seems to wear her very fashionable glasses somewhat regularly. There are some caps of her on Unlike other onscreen news personalities, she seems to understand that eyewear can be an acttractive attribute and has chosen frames with that in mind.

I appreciate your feelings toward the wrong-wingers like Sarah, not that there’s anything wrong with the Phillies.

The ones that can, though, whoa! “Danger, Will Robinson!”

Thank you for clearing things up about the commercials! Fortunately, I was able to record the conclusions of each of the past two games. I wouldn't mind being awakened by horn beeps tomorrow night.

As for seeing women on TV in glasses, knowing how so many of the lenses are plano, remember the famous words of Major Zolle on Hogan's Heroes: "If something sounds too good, watch out."

kisal 20 Oct 2009, 05:41

Melyssa, I should have specified "flipping through channels during the _commercials_ in the baseball game." I was glued to the screen during play as I was last night. And it is interesting how beauty really is related to personality. When I first saw Sarah Elizabeth Mugg, before I knew who she was, my jaw dropped and I thought "my word, how gorgeous!" But after I heard what came out of her mouth, she literally seemed less and less attractive to me (especially since I fully agree with you that her glasses are fake). Same thing happened with Sarah Palin.

"Flipping through channels during last night's baseball game"? There was nothing else to watch at all. The game was extremely enjoyable! I'll settle for 6 more like it this year. (Guess which team is my favorite.)

Flipping through channels during last night's baseball game, I came upon this hottie,

Though her glasses are so thin that I am very skeptical as to whether they are real.

On YouTube you can find a lengthy video of Katie Couric interviewing Timothy Geithner (not sure of that spelling?). Katie wears her glasses throughout, a pair (and style) of frames I've never seen on her before.

Melyssa 05 Sep 2009, 07:47

Here in the U.S., any woman who wears glasses while doing news is doing so only because her contacts are bothering her for some reason, and the next day she either has to wear the contacts again or take the day off. The network honchos (and Hollywoodies as well) are pigs.

Mr Cock-eyed 05 Sep 2009, 05:13

I enjoy looking at these newscasters and weather presenters in the UK and the rest of Europe, but here in the States there is a unwritten rule that rarely women wear glasses in the news. We all know many of them are glasses wearers, but usually wear contacts. It seems in the States, men can wear glasses in the news arena, but not the girls, it's terrible, but thats the mindset of network executives.

She's a fine looking woman and obviously knows what's she's doing. However, it's interesting that she pairs her flamboyant outfits with rather conservative frames.

newshound 17 Jun 2009, 17:47

They are not fulltime wearers. For reading and wearing occasionally on the air, even Katie Couric was eventually allowed to.

Fulltime wearers tend to be male, old, follicularly challenged, and/or have been wearing glasses for decades, so people are used to it.

Even many older men on air, such as Katie's predecessor Bob Schieffer, wear contacts. Otherwise how they could read what's in front of them.

Goes for politicians too. For example Ronald Reagan had a very elaborate contact lens scheme. When giving a speech (before teleprompters became big) he had to change one lens so he could read what he was saying. He also had readers when not in public, as shown in a few photos.

Today a politician like Nancy Pelosi surely wears contacts as well. Once upon a time she wore half-glasses. Now that she has a higher profile she cannot go that route or she would be made fun of.

Sure Sarah Palin and Ashleigh Banfield on truTV are counterexamples. But they are quite rare.

Public personalities have an image to maintain. For whatever reason glasses tend to not be very acceptable to either them or to the public.

Aubrac 03 Jun 2009, 00:48


Think you're right about Kate, +1.5 to +2.00 but not much more, the occassional slant you can see through the lens does seem to indicate astigmatism. This may be the main reason for wear, and makes her less likely to use contacts as toric lenses can be problematic.


Very nice glasses on Katie, difficult to guess plus scrips but reckon +3.00 to +4.00. I have not seen her before, is she an FT wearer, do you have any other pics of her?

I agree that Suzanne Leonard is dynamite, although she appears to have abandoned the 'Feliz' part of her name along with her curly hairdo and her hot glasses. I still get a charge out of her; perhaps my mind fits her with imaginary specs before sending her to the 'hot or not' decision centre.

If so, you were probably more than aware of a much prettier (in my opinion) TV Meteorologist, Suzanne Leonard Felize, who seems to have let us all down now by having Lasik, or going to contacts full-time ?

But we are reasonably lucky, having Nancy Wood, on the CBC Morning News, who occasionally wears her glasses, and looks much better for it and, very infrequently, Cheryl MacLeod - on the CBC Weekend Evening news ?

Out here on the West Cost we also have Terri Larsen presenting the sorts on the CBC evening news, and Kathy Tomlinson (I think it is) on the CBC short Go Public documentaries ?

She has absolutely killer style that, to my perpetual priapic pleasure, includes a seemingly limitless collection of frames, and is, by all measures I recognize, scrumptiously pulchritudinous.

The sheer size and quality of her . . . collection makes me suspicious that maybe she is an OO as well (on top of the general pervasive hotness of which I have written above). And I don't want a single one of you to shatter that hope. If you can't feed this little dream of mine, then kindly confine yourself to making hymns to the silence.

Clare 17 Apr 2009, 09:55

Aubrac - I think it's great that women like Kate Silverton choose to wear glasses. And you're right, I'm -275 and -3 so reading certainly isn't an issue for me, that's hard to appreciate for us I guess.

I have a former colleague who's longsighted and very glamorous. She's in her late 20s and wears her glasses all day in the office for reading, and more. Of course I can't judge how strong they are but they suit her alot and she appears to be very confident wearing them.

Aubrac 17 Apr 2009, 09:27


Kate always wears her glasses on Breakfast TV. I've seen her in a programme about tracing your family history in which she wore glasses about 70% of the time.

I think she is a plus wearer between +1.50 and +2.50. If I remember I think you are about -2.75 which means distance is blurred but you can probably read ok. The plus equivalent could mean that distance could still be reasonably ok but reading anything is very difficult.

It is possible shes was wearing contacts but I think most likely she was just bare eyed as I doubt if she was seen reading anything during the programmes.

A lot of low plus wearers wear glasses full time because although distance is crisper with them, they are not dependant, but would otherwise have to put them on every time they wanted to read or see close up.

A bit like being able to find the oranges in Sainsburys but not being able to read the price!!!

Screencaps of Katie Couric wearing her glasses are up on They are savable as 'wallpaper' by clicking on the note on the page.

Katie's glasses (and she has a 'wardrobe' of frame styles that she wears) seem to be mainly for reading and during interviews she refers to her notes and prepared questions more regularly, thus the need for her to don her spex.

lazysiow 10 Apr 2009, 02:27

I would guess at a low plus of about +1.50 with some cylinder.

I saw her in a programme about tracing her family history and in some shots when she was driving the low plus seemed about right.

She was bare-eyed in a lot of shots but was always wearing her glasses when reading something.

Check out the Julie Banderas string on and you will find a cap of her reporting while wearing her glasses this past Thursday.

Also on Thursday Katie Couric anchored the evening newscast wearing glasses nearly the whole time. She was "based" outdoors for the show and likely needed the glasses to read her notes in the non-studio lighting. Her frames were an very contemporary squarish style. You may be able to see her reporting in spex at the CBS evening news site.

ATSF9100 14 Jan 2009, 14:50

Actually, yes. She's been wearing them off and on after returning from maternity leave last year. They're rare when she does the 5:30 news and more likely at 10:00. Her partner on the news, Kathy Mykelby, is also a GWG, farsighted but much less likely to wear then on the air. Unfortunately, no screen caps.

This girl is drop-dead! Anyone on here live in that area? Captures?

More on HC and eyewear. During her recent run for nomination as president, her campaign ran a widely shown ad about who has the experience for "answering the 'red phone' at 3 a.m." In that ad, Hillary wore glasses, a pair of black-framed specs that looked pretty good. It was, however, her only appearance in glasses that I can recall.

I was two feet from HC recently, and she does, in fact, wear CL's. And, I also noticed an occasional squint factor.

Philosifer 01 Jan 2009, 07:32


I have been watching La Clinton hard for all those years, and don't believe she has let herself be seen in public with her full minus prescription in clear glasses almost since she was in law school.

The closest I think she goes has been to wear prescription sunglasses on days when you might think the sunshine wasn't bright enough to justify the shades.

There seemed to be several days like that around the time of the Atlanta Olympics , when the Clintons were outside, and in the public eye, a lot.

So she may have gone the Lasik route, but the story never came out , and the 'best' shots of her in glasses in recent years have been when she is using readers in the Senate. And lots of people who have had Lasik have to use readers, so its impossible to say whether thats what it is, or if its just the legit version of GOC, which has to be practiced by many highly myopic women who have worn contacts all their lives, but finally need a substantial add for reading ?

Can anyone find a photo of Anne-Marie Mediwake. Per

"News that sparkles

One person who does wear her glasses on-air is Anne-Marie Mediwake, Global News anchor in Toronto, Canada. She’s been wearing glasses since third grade and has a strong prescription (around –6.000). Kids didn’t tease her about them, but she hated her glasses all the same. Mediwake admits to abusing her glasses as a child, and even to deliberately “losing” some. But that hatred hasn’t lasted. Today she owns three pairs of glasses.

For general use, she has a pair of “vintage-looking” rhinestone encrusted black frames. They’re actually readers that she had prescription lenses put into. For on-air use, she wears black Paolo Rossini frames that are more subtle. “You can’t talk about car accidents and kids dying in sparkly glasses,” she explains. The third pair she uses mostly for reading.

It’s uncommon to find television personalities wearing glasses on-air. Mediwake didn’t always either. But when she moved to Global from CTV in January, her eyes reacted to something in the studio and she couldn’t wear her contact lenses. There was some resistance to her decision to wear glasses on-air, but mostly support.

“I find it’s mostly younger women wearing them on-air now, because they’re a fashion statement,” she says."

We'll title this tales of Kristina Abernathy of the Weather Channel. I seem to remember years ago that she was nearsighted on the rare ocassions she was seen in glasses. Switch to the modern era. She now appears weekly (Sat. and Sun) wearing what appear to be plus lenses. When I turned TWC on earlier today she was bare-eyed. Now, several hours later, the glasses are back on. Any thoughts from the GWG community? Could we have a case of surgery gone bad? Just a curious KA fan.

Yesterday Meredith Vieira on the TODAY show again worn her glasses the entire show. They were a new pair with an interesting and attractive shape and colored earpieces. While there are some videos on the TODAY show website (segment on 'perfection' and on 'toys'), there does not seem to be any captures on line so far.

In an interesting choice given that she rarely wears spex in public, Hillary Clinton, in a latest campaign ad that is getting a lot of news coverage, is shown wearing glasses as the ad depicts her dealing with a prospective international crisis "at 3 a.m. in the White House." I'm sure that showing her in glasses was no accident, but a deeply thought-out choice on the part of the ad makers.

Yoyo 27 Feb 2008, 11:30

Some random YouTube viewing yielded videos of Jody Vance, a very sexy Canadian sportscaster. Not being from Canada, I'd never heard of her before.

The glasses aren't too strong, but she is clearly a full-time wearer.

Traveller 27 Feb 2008, 11:24

Marcia McMillan's glasses look fantastic. I like the fact that when she looks straight there is just a little bit of cut in on both sides. What prescription does this suggest? I'm guessing about -4 or -5.

Don't see much TV, but did see Ms Smith the other day. Does she wear contacts most of the time, she seems not to be using readers, so is she now doing Monovision?

Always thought Vorderman was a lens wearer, so guessing that she is preferring the readers with lenses approach rather than progressives?

Alex lovell used to be the presenter of brainteaser about a year ago. She never wore glasses. I watched all the time eagerly awaiting to see if she would wear glasses.

Great pix there Rainis, love the first one of the heavy aviator frames showing some power circles on her right hand lens. Yummy.

On a more serious note, I was also very sad to see the breaking news on 27th December of Benazir Bhutto's death, here was a woman fighting for freedom in Pakistan and democracy and yet the radicals obviously couldn't handle something they viewed so outrageous they had to kill her.

She was a fantastic person who put her life on the line literally for what she believed in. God rest this beautiful gwg who always had a large number of different frames to show off.

Saw a quote in the Daily Mail the other day by newsreader Katie Derham, which went "At school I used to wear thick specatcles and had a mouth full of braces. My nickname was Girder Gob, which didn't do much for my confidence".

At least she will not have to deal with that freak show of a country in Paksitan anymore. Sad, because she seemed interested in helping the people of Pakistan. It is small wonder that every Pakistani with an ounce of sense and a few rupiyas, gets the hell out of there and heads West.

To "IN THE NEWS" 28 Dec 2007, 05:55

Dude, your joke is just plain dumb because that's not the way her name is pronounced. You really sound uneducated with a stupid joke like that where you would have to completely change the pronunciation of a word to make it even come close to working.

Learn to respect people, okay? Her name was properly pronounced BOO TOE, not BUT WHO... Saying it the way you do makes you look like a BUT HOLE.

eyespy 28 Dec 2007, 05:05

~Aviator, I'd guess that her rx was higher, maybe +/- minus4. I presumed she was a contacts wearer too.

Happy New Year to all eyescene fans!

aviator -oo- 28 Dec 2007, 01:37

continued from below,,,

I would guess her script was -2 to -3 as she was not a full-time wearer. She could be relied upon to update her frames regularly, which always made her an interesting personality to follow. My favourite frames were the ones she wore in the early 1990s when she first became Prime Minsister: large roundish frames, with thin black plastic rims and a graduated grey tint (similar to those shown in the link below). It was a popular style at the time and suited her beautifully.

Jennifer 12 Sep 2007, 13:00

When Ms. Clinton was first lady I never saw her wearing glasses. The thick glasses you're referring to seem to date back to when her husband was governor and before. I've been wondering the same thing about her. Has she had lasik? Or has she been wearing contacts all this time? While in the Senate, she's been wearing what look to be reading glasses. Maybe she thinks it's more acceptable for her to wear reading glasses sometimes than be a gwg full time!

Philosifer 12 Sep 2007, 11:36

So what do our learned observers have to suggest in terms of an explanation of the recent pattern of spectacle wear by the lady who may yet become the first First Lady to take the presidential seat on her own merits ? We all know she really was, in the old days, 'as blind as a bat', so what is going on now ? Are these just reading glasses over contacts, or has she finally had Lasik, and these deal with some residual required correction - together with reading - or is there some possibility of an appearance-conscious effort to restore her original 'highly intelligent' look, without all those power rings ?

Ali Velshi of CNN looks good in those new dark frame plastic glasses.

gwgs 21 Aug 2007, 05:22

Kate Silverton on BBC Breakfast (aka) News this morning and yesterday with a new hairdo and sporting two different pairs of frames over the last two days. One was a metal pair with the ever increasingly popular wide temples with discreasing width as they get to the ears and yesterday she was wearing rimless ovals. Two pairs I haven't seen before - could they be holding a new prescription??

She'll be on a show this evening on BBC1 at 9pm where she is kayaking and thus for the majority not wearing spex so probably not worth watching it!!

Guest 20 Aug 2007, 19:40

Megyn Kelly first wore her specs last week Thursday. She mentioned that she had a scratched cornea, so maybe this is a temporary situation. I hope not.

Willy 20 Aug 2007, 09:44

I thought the Star Jones quote was a bit odd: "I'm not ashamed that I need glasses for distance."

Perhaps there is an unspoken continuation: "But I would be ashamed if you realized that I am 45 and need help up close, so I hope you don't figure out that I am wearing progressives."

Either way, she does look good, and I think the glasses are an effective way of changing her appearance so that your first thought is not to focus on how much weight she lost.

I wonder if someone will be TIVOing the debut of her show to see if she makes more glasses comments.

lv2c4i 20 Aug 2007, 07:39

Megyn Kelly on Fox News morning show is wearing new rimless glasses this morning. The reportercaps website has caps from last week when she apparently began to be a newspersonWG on screen. The message board also says that E.D.Hill briefly wore her specs on camera as a sign of solidarity with her newly bespectacled cohort.

Oops! There goes another one. Liz Claman has left her job at CNBC. She was often bespectacled as she previewed her show and, would also wear her reading glasses during some of her interviews especially as she referred to texts in front of her. Sounds as if she'll be back on another network in a few months--wonder what her eyewear wardrobe will be then?

lv2c4i 04 Aug 2007, 06:49

Paula Zahn had her last broadcast the other evening. And so goes another news reader who would sometimes don her specs, tho she seemed to be doing it less and less lately.

Katie Couric never wears hers in her new gig.

Perhaps Campbell Brown is getting to the age where she'll begin wearing some in her new job.

Having only watched about 3/4 of one of her programs, I get the feeling her "I can't get dates" thing is a bit of a schtick.

Were I not happily in love with a gorgeous GWG already, I would do dirty things to Ms. Loewenberg ten ways til Tuesday.

kisal 20 Apr 2007, 06:00

Hi. I know this video has been posted elsewhere, but I just wanted to bring this sexy GWG to everyone's attention:

Her name is Anna Sophie Loewenberg, or her Chinese name Su Fei. Anyway, she does these videos where she walks around Beijing interviewing people about love and sex and so forth. But she is amazingly sexy with the "nerd chic" cat-eyes glasses and a great body. She is always in skirts showing off her great legs and fine body. She wonders why she isn't getting dates -- I only know that if I were in Beijing and single...

She has a home page that includes a link to her as lead singer in a punk band:

lazysiow 19 Apr 2007, 09:48

Here is a description of how Ashleigh started wearing glasses

4EYES 18 Apr 2007, 16:19

From my understanding Ashleigh started to wear glasses in 1999 when she was in Dallas at the FOX affiliate just before she went to MSNBC. I once saw her interviewed and she said she started wearing them due to having trouble reading the telepromter and had no interest in wearing contacts or lasik surgery. She looked good in the Calgary video, but I think she looks soo cool and so much better with her glasses............

 16 Apr 2007, 09:58

Goodness! Ashleigh Banfield looks completely different without those glasses. Did she used to wear contct lenses?

Trent 13 Apr 2007, 17:31

Erica's glasses may be a new frame style (and a new prescription?). She is not, however, a new wearer, and if these are a new pair, they seem to be only a slight change in style from her most recent pair.

You should be able to find pictures around of her wearing her other pairs over the years.

john112 06 Apr 2007, 20:43

ARe Erica's glasses new?

Lv2c4i 06 Apr 2007, 05:04

Check for caps of Erica Hill, Liz Claman (earlier this week), and Allison Stewart all sporting their specs. Allison Stewart has a wardrobe of glasses, various styles, all flattering. She replaces Katie Couric who used to wear her various styles, but now keeps them discretely on the desk, but nearly never wearing them.

Any caps of Dara Brown?

Hi Tara, i am glad you are getting in well with your glasses. Being a hyperope it will take a while, several weeks for your near focusing ability to relax back to normal. When that happens you will need to wear your glasses full time. Up to now you have been able to see distance and near because your eyes were compensating by focusing for near vision even to see at a distance. This is because your eyes are hyperopic. Meaning your eyeballs are too short or your corneas are too flat or both to see normally.

Yes, you go through a period of the "shock" of realizing you need glasses. And seeing yourself in the mirror wearing them. And others who know you will also be surprised seeing you in glasses. But after a time (it varies from person to person) wearing glasses will be just as normal for you as wearing shoes. So just wear them and be proud of them and enjoy your improved new vision and your new look

BTW what style of frames did you get.

When did Glenn Beck start wearing those "Donny Deutch" style glasses? Guess he is dealing with presbyopia.

Tod 27 Feb 2007, 16:34

Too bad Katie Couric isn't wearing her glasses. Because I would like nothing more right now than to hold off and smack the little bitch right the hell out of her high heel shoes. And if she had those dumb glasses on I wouldn't mind to smacking her out of them too.

Not so far north, the democrats have Michigan's Governor Jennifer Granholm, who has several pairs in her wardrobe, but often appears bare-eyed, so her specs are probably for close work.

I watched the CBS Evening News tonight with Katie Couric. When the telecast began she was seated at her desk with her glasses on the desk beside her. I hope some night she puts them on.

 24 Sep 2006, 15:45

I'm sure you've all seen Erin Andrews who is a sideline reporter for ESPN. She's beautiful and would look stunning in glasses. I haven't been able to find any info and was wondering if anyone knew if she wears glasses or contacts.

Katie had her specs sitting on the desk beside her during the broadcast on Tuesday of this week. She never wore them when the camera was on her, but they were sitting just to her right...brown plastic frames...

JM 14 Sep 2006, 09:24

perhaps Katie has her specs close by,out of sight. Although she reads from a teleprompter, I believe they have a script too, in case of a technical glitch with the prompter, she would read from her papers. Wouldn't want to be on live tv and not be able to read anything. I personally would love to see her wear them all the time.

It must be a thing for Attorney's General here in the states. This is ours from Wisconsin.

When she was first elected 4 years ago she was always without. But in the last couple of years she's always had them on. Appears to be a significant myope too. BTW, she lost in the primary election yesterday.

And oh by the way, Lisa Madigan's glasses rocks!!

4 eyes 13 Sep 2006, 15:10

I stumbled accross this on the internet -- Lisa Madigan the Illinois Attourney General. Thought it was pretty cool - - A high profile politician (at least in Illinios) who is realtively young and attractive who wears glasses not just in the office but on her campaign pictures and all of the time...It looks like in her original campaign in 2002 she didn't wear glasses. Compare pictures - - definetely an upgarde for the 2006 campaign.

Here is the 2002 campaign picture

And the 2006 campaign picture

How long has Jeff Gillan of KLAS been wearing bifocals?

 06 Sep 2006, 04:14

Maybe Katie left her readers at the Today Show for Matt to use.

 06 Sep 2006, 01:03

I watched the CBS Evening News tonight where Katie Couric made her first appearance on the air. I guess she won't be wearing her glasses anymore on the air as she read from the teleprompter while reporting the news. I didn't see her glasses on the desk or in her hand like she held them while on the Today Show.

kisal 27 Aug 2006, 06:24

Saw this one in the Washington Post:

Quote: "Bobby: I was at the bar having a drink [when] the maitre d' called me over and introduced me to Sarah. She was really pretty. She had on Lisa Loeb-style tortoise-shell glasses. I have a thing for girls with glasses." -- and a small picture of lovely Irish Sarah.

Bobby is our kind of guy!

Eggplant is very hot

 20 Aug 2006, 01:59

I'm quite happy to look at Eglantine in specs or contacts. She really is a honey with great taste in specs too.

 19 Aug 2006, 16:56

How long has Lester Holt of Weekend Today been wearing glasses? Presbyopia?

tortoise 15 Aug 2006, 07:01

There's a short video clip of Eglantine in glasses at this link:

Click beside the little TV.

Gourdy 15 Aug 2006, 03:40

So does Eglantine always wear glasses or is she a contacts wearer that is rarely seen in glasses?

4 Eyes 14 Aug 2006, 14:34

Here is a pic of Jill Carroll with a new pair of specs (and color hairdo...)

Filthy McNasty 14 Aug 2006, 14:23

I call her that lovingly.

Rumple Stillskin 14 Aug 2006, 13:24

Eglantine looks a bit like Jennifer Garner, Ben Afflicks current squeeze.

lazysiow 14 Aug 2006, 11:19

I wonder if she knows anyone is calling her an eggplant :)

Gourdy 14 Aug 2006, 11:07

That Eggplant lady is a very hot GWG. Yes!

Filthy McNasty 14 Aug 2006, 09:58

Long live Eggplantine. She's rockin' cute.

WoW Kate wearing different frames today.Nice to see a beautiful women who doesn't mind wearing her Glasses.

whelshy 17 Jul 2006, 02:15

Yep Kate's glasses looked new to me,much prefer her in dark plastic frames , very nice Babe !!!!

Phil 17 Jul 2006, 01:44

Kate Silverton was on this morning with some oblong plastic frames that I hadn't seen before. She looked fantastic.

o.c. 11 Jul 2006, 09:00

dude,is anyone going to post pictures of matt lauer.

 11 Jul 2006, 04:15

If she is on the Today Show, glasses seem to rule: Matt, Al, Lester, etc.

 07 Jul 2006, 18:18

Does anyone know if Campbell Brown wears glasses ever?

 07 Jul 2006, 15:42

An article on Ashleigh Banfield's trademark glasses.

Three weeks before her final broadcast in October 1999, she began wearing glasses. Although she claims she needed them for reading the TelePrompTer, some at the station were suspicious. "The story going around is that when she sent out her résumé tapes, one of the recipients asked, 'How do we know you are a serious journalist?'" relates a source at Fox 4. "Then the glasses appeared."

Myopeinhere 05 Jul 2006, 21:27

hard to tell it's 5 in the morning here,hope that post made sense!!

myopeinhere 05 Jul 2006, 21:26

Twas Room 101,and she's finally ditched the oversize blackk framed ones and went for more girly frames,good rx thougth 7.looked about -6 or7

Some good pictures of her on google.

Bronwyn 05 Jul 2006, 18:17

Mr. Mild? How mild?

Mister Mild 05 Jul 2006, 16:01

Myopeinhere was probably watching the BBC's Grumpy Old Woman. As well as Jenny Eclair - wearing large black/yellow designer frames - there were Germaine Greer (yuk)and Maureen Lipman, the latter wearing attractive rimless semi-rectangular. She is an actress of mature years but still 'scrubs up well'. Plenty of pix if you run a Google image search on her name

myofan 05 Jul 2006, 15:20

I found a little picture of Jenny in glasses at

I trust there are better ones somewhere, but you can definitely see the cut-in in this picture.

Myopeinhere 05 Jul 2006, 14:54

Just been watching the good old BBC and on the programme was Jenny Eclair,comedienne,actress and serious GWG,admitted to being very short sighted and appears to be too..

 01 Jul 2006, 06:43

I think it is a requirement that all the males on Today wear glasses. They are a bespectacled group.

specs4ever 30 Jun 2006, 15:30

Well eyeseeit, the best reason was given to me a couple of weeks ago by a much younger man as he pulled a pair of plus glasses from his pocket to read a paragraph in a book. " I have reached the age where curiosity has overcome vanity." he said

Jay 30 Jun 2006, 06:49

Is Lester Holt of Weekend Today now wearing glasses?

Eyeseeit 26 Jun 2006, 07:08

Chris, here is a link that may be of interest to you. When I read it, I thought that it really did a good job of explaining why farsighted people (aka hyperopes) wear glasses:

Chris 26 Jun 2006, 03:21

Kate Silverton is a very mild hyperope of no more than +2 I'd say. Actually she's probably astigmatic too hence the glasses. Otherwise I wouldn't have thought she would bother with them as at her age she could easily accommodate +2D sphere

gwgs 26 Jun 2006, 01:48

I saw Katie Silverton at the Ascot races (on TV) but she didn't have glasses on!

Smudgeur 25 Jun 2006, 00:45

These pics. (courtesy of GWGs) suggest a plus RX

Jon 19 Jun 2006, 00:14

I would say after watching Kate Silverton last night that she has a plus rx.

guest 18 Jun 2006, 21:48


What would you estimate her rx to be? Sometimes it appears myopic but at other times the opposite!

Smudgeur 18 Jun 2006, 14:35

Kate Silverton presenting Panorama tonight - on now. Lots of closeups of her glasses!

 16 Jun 2006, 20:21

Geoff 16 Jun 2006, 20:21

Any Lauer spex sightings?

Tim 15 Jun 2006, 18:32


After looking through your Kate Silverton album, I had a look at your Madonna one. Interesting. I had never before seen her wearing glasses, yet had always thought that her eyes have a slightly odd look, as if she badly needed them (or was wearing highly uncomfortable CLs). Yet these glasses seem to be planos, or possibly weak plus. Dream shattered - I had envisaged her as a true high myope in the Maria Callas tradition! Or are these weak glasses a double bluff?!

Lv2c4i 15 Jun 2006, 05:19

CNN's Kyra Phillips has been sporting her specs the past couple of days. Caps of her can be found at And, Lix Claman is wearing her glasses more regularly on CNBC's Morning Call. She slips them on as needed to read her notes, somewhat like Katie Couric used to.

gwgs 15 Jun 2006, 02:22

I finally caught Katie Silverton on TV this morning at 7:45am on BBC 1 til 8:15 when I left for work.

The annoying thing was there were very rarely close ups of her, I managed to cap a few shots anyhow of her in her new semi rimless spex;

Poptician 13 Jun 2006, 07:46

Picture of Kate Silverton in today's Independent, bare eyed sadly, but with the good news that she will be presenting TV coverage of Royal Ascot (the fashion side of things, not the dobbins). I can't stand horse racing, but I'll be watching this time.

Filthy McNasty 13 Jun 2006, 07:36

gwgs: "get me up in the morning". Har.

gwgs 13 Jun 2006, 06:04


What time is she on? I'll set my Sky+ to record it.

Smudgeur 13 Jun 2006, 02:29

She's on again now! Wearing a much lighter pair of glasses - possibly semi-rimless

gwgs 09 Jun 2006, 03:11

Damn, the last couple of mornings I've switched on BBC News and flicked over to News 24 hoping to find her and get me up in the morning but I've been disappointed not to see her.

Smudgeur 08 Jun 2006, 01:51

kate Silverton on News 24 at the moment - wearing new rectangular silver frames.

Filthy McNasty 05 Jun 2006, 06:25

I hate to be so predictable...

gwgs 05 Jun 2006, 01:41

Well said Filthy, I guessed that was you before even looking at the name :)

Phil 05 Jun 2006, 00:54

New format on London travel section of BBC1's morning news. Presenters now look straight forward. First time I'd seen Kate Allen like this today. She looked amazing in a black dress and her semi-rimless black frames. She is still my all time fave gwg!

Filthy McNasty 03 Jun 2006, 21:53

She can wear anything she wants, as far as I am concerned. As long as she takes it off for me later.

Smudgeur 03 Jun 2006, 08:39

Lots of coverage in the UK press for Kate Silverton this week - all about a dodgy blouse she wore on breakfast TV.

John S 01 Jun 2006, 06:04

I saw an interesting post on the "mailbag" portion on

"Do you think Katie Couric will be wearing the glasses when she starts the CBS news?"

Maybe another "OO"?

Joseph 28 May 2006, 05:56

The day I saw Lauer wearing glasses, they were full-frame.

Russell 23 May 2006, 08:15

I have been watching Today to see Matt in his glasses, but so far, they just lie there on his desk. Some have said they have seen him wear them. Are they half-frame or full-frame?
