sexy sighting yesterday. Young girl about 18 years in sexy clothes and 4 inch heels borrowed glsses from a friend in a cafe. I sit the table next to them. The power of the glasses were about -3/-4. She try them on for more than five minutes and she looks very nice in them. She said to her friend that they made her sighting not very comfortable but she was able to see things in distance very clearly.

matthewson, it's not unusual to have a fetish, a glasses fetish, many on here are the same

ordered a pair of bifocals online, i don't need them but I LOVE wearing them when I don't know anyone. Don't know why that's such a turn on, but being around strangers wearing lined bifocals is a good feeling

I agree it is nothing mysterious. We can calculate the value using this online calculator, the method is the same:
If my post before felt like a bit mysterious, it's because I described the feeling seeing thru the image. my feelings are subjective , varies with time and not always rational.

That's why progressives are so good. You don't have to slide the glasses down and your eyes and brain coordinate as to what part of the lens to look through. I think they were an inqenious invention.
Cactus Jack 27 Mar 2013, 12:00
Come to think of it, sliding your glasses down your nose can also help a person who wears plus glasses read also, again if the prescription is high enough. Anything to avoid the dreaded bifocals or, horror of horrors, trifocals.
Cactus Jack 27 Mar 2013, 11:54
Another thought. Letting minus glasses slide down your nose has the same optical effect as wearing the dreaded bifocals to help you read, IF you have a significant MINUS prescription.
Cactus Jack 27 Mar 2013, 11:50
If your prescription is more than +/-5.00 vertex distance (the distance from your cornea to the back surface of your glasses) begins to play a role in the "effective" power of your glasses. The magnitude of the effect is the square (^2) of the sphere prescription, though cylinder can come into play if it is over 5.00.
When your glasses slide down your nose, you are increasing the vertex distance from the usual 12 mm or so, which is pretty close to the vertex distance for either trial lens frames or phoropters, you are DECREASING the effective power of your glasses if you wear minus lenses and INCREASING the effective power of your glasses if you wear plus lenses.
You can calculate the approximate power change by squaring the sphere power and dividing the result by 1000. This number is the amount of the effective power decrease or increase per mm.
For example, with Astra's -5.5 it would be (5.5 x 5.5 = 30.25 / 1000 = .03025) 0.030 x 20 mm or effectively 0.60 diopters LESS if the glasses slid down the nose 20 mm or -4.90 diopters. With JD's -10.75 the effect is significantly greater because of the square function at work. Here is the math. 10.75 x 10.75 = 115.5625 / 1000 = 0.116 per mm. If JDs glasses slid down the nose 20 mm the effective power of the glasses would be -8.43 (0.116 x 20 = 2.32).
Remember when doing the calculations the - or + on the prescription is lost and you have to reapply the correct sign on the final result. Just apply the vertex distance effects to the original prescription as described above by DECREASING or INCREASING the number as appropriate.
BTW, this is the same calculation used for determining the difference between a refracted or glasses prescription and a Contact Lens prescription and the reason CL prescriptions are LOWER for minus prescriptions and HIGHER for plus prescriptions.
Probably more than you wanted to know, but there it is anyway. Nothing mysterious going on, just optics at work.
varifocals 27 Mar 2013, 11:44
JD very true.
Much easier with minus lens too.
JD 27 Mar 2013, 10:09
Astra, I agree with you. I really like to let my glasses slide down my nose often to notice things get blurry. I find it very stimulating as well (I'm -10.75). I wear my glasses fairly loose just so they will slide down. I also like to see other people (women) that do the same. Obviously the higher the Rx the better, as it is obvious to me how much different the acuity of their vision will be. Fascinating!

Have not talk about my own fetish for a while.
we all know when myopia increases we would become more dependent on the lenses. When we have lower rx we can have the lenses farther away and still see okay (maybe still 20/25 or 20/30) ...
I have around -5.5 right now it is a lot more restricted (dependent) , even pulling the lenses 2 cm away the image are already noticeably distorting and shifting in position, with the acuity drops down to roughly 20/50 , and i can feel the lenses become a lot weaker by positioning it 2 cm away, or simply let it slide down and sits at the nose tip.
We have seen in some slutty poses, gwg sliding their frame to the nose tip, or adjusting lenses deliberately..
but some gwg use low minus rx or plano lenses, most important is the image shift being very mild. also the wearer can see more than 30 cm good enough without their glasses.
when the rx is higher we can have more image shift with the minus lenses.
onlookers may be unable to experience the feelings of the wearer. when the rx is higher even a slight push around the lenses the image would shift a lot, also with some peripheral distortion.
so that the gwg herself would feel like her vision are really distorting, when her glasses is shifted (either by herself or her partner) it is such a "massage" to her eyes. In my own experience I feel very stimulating, I feel surprised and excited, as if pulling my eyeballs away from and back to my body, and threatened to be back to the unfamiliar blur.
most people at such rx would not be familiar with the blur unless they spend a lot of time without glasses. it is such an emotional shock or stimuli ...
Soundmanpt 15 Jan 2013, 18:30
So they were going for a sisters look it sounds like. Yeah i'm sure her eyes were able to adjust to the glasses without any problem. By the end of each day i'm sure when she took them off everything was blurry at least for a while. At least she knows that if she wants to wear glasses her eyes can tolerate that much prescription, Maybe her friend will let her just keep the glasses if they are a past pair for her?
By the way what you witnessed happens quite often that someone likes the glasses that a friend is wearing and when that person gets new glasses will pass them on to her friend.
gwg-lover 15 Jan 2013, 17:30
I think she wanted to look like her friend because she also wore the same kind of clothes like her. I don`t know if she got glasses herself after wearing her friends but I know that she had no problem with her vision while wearing the glasses.
Soundmanpt 15 Jan 2013, 10:39
You didn't say, but any idea why she wore a friends glasses for 3 days while on of town. It sounds like she kinda wanted to be able to wear glasses but didn't want family and other friends know of her desire? Too bad -1.00 is a very good prescription for someone with perfect vision to wear as first glasses. At the end of 3 days her eyes should have been completely adjusted to them.
gwg-lover 14 Jan 2013, 17:32
Best of all for me is a nice girl who tries on foreign glasses, best with minus-lenses between -2 and -5 diopters and wants to wear them more time.
Once I met a girl who wear glasses from a friend for more than three days during a journey. But they were only about -1 diopter.

Drat! Only available in the US :(
Can someone download it and upload it to YouTube or somewhere similar so us viewers not in the US of A can watch it?

I found a Japanese cartoon episode that deals with glasses fetish. Warning: it alludes to explicit situations between two teens (the series is set in a high school) although there isn't any nudity that I can recall.
The plot is pretty funny and really it's a bit of a microcosm about trying to navigate life as a teen with a fetish or discovering that a partner has one.
The show is "Girl's High" and the episode is called "Glasses! Glasses! Glasses!". I watched it on Hulu although that's probably US only:

Just last Wednesday I got my latest glasses...
They're -12 and are magnificent. I measured the edge of the lenses and they're 15 millimetres thick! I won't be wearing them, that's for sure. I didn't buy them for that. As a true glasses fetishist I bought them for licking. I even made a video of my first licking. I may post it one day, but not now.
I offer no apologies for what I do to thick glasses. After all, I'm not hurting anyone. Nor is it my intention to cause harm.
For those who are interested, the site I ordered the latest glasses from is; greateyeglasses.com

For those who would like to see how bad your eyesight is.
You can see the uncorrected image out of your frame. quite eerie to compare with the corrected image. It's like a haunted image.

trend setters... Clare can be a trend setters if she wish to.
Astra 02 Aug 2011, 15:17
Ha, I can rarely get relaxed enough to observe people around.
But I have an impression , most people looks trendy to me . So I couldn't really care about that as I would run out of time.

That's East from here, Astra :) In British terminology 'the Far East', which I suppose is a slightly old British Imperial term.
Astra 02 Aug 2011, 11:04
come West is not a bad idea. Chinese/Japanese are trendy.
Melyssa 02 Aug 2011, 10:34
Maybe the original name of the town is "Glass-go". There is a Glasgow in Delaware, but I figure that glasses there are still small and mostly not plastic.
ehpc 02 Aug 2011, 08:37
I think the last post was from Clare. Curiously, my observations are the complete reverse.Maybe you should come North:) The trendy glasses scene is very much alive here in Glasgow, I am delighted to say:) Pete
01 Aug 2011, 14:16
Kat - thanks, I may be heading back that way towards the end of the year.
Melyssa - shame. I used to work in a European investment bank and all of my French/German/Dutch/Scandinavian colleagues were real trend setters. We don't get such a sense of style/accessorising generally here in the UK but they certainly knew how to. Seems like NY is a bit like us too.
Melyssa 01 Aug 2011, 07:04
I'm glad you survived your trip to Gun City. (Okay, it was that way before Rudy G. cleaned it up.) Don't be surprised about the lack of trendiness in glasses -- it's like that in the Philadelphia area too, and probably most of this country.
Kat 31 Jul 2011, 21:02

I reside in HK. If you would like to chat about the glasses scene/suggestions for stores to visit then send me a message...
Clare 31 Jul 2011, 11:13
I'm just back from New York. Absolutely no trendy glasses scene there whatsoever! Or was I just working too long/too hard??
varifocals 21 Jul 2011, 04:40
Yes as well as the city I visited the amazing new territories & rode the light rail there too.
People very friendly & helpful.
Astra 21 Jul 2011, 02:42
Hong Kong is mostly an idyllic location with lush vegetation cover, variable landscape.
The highly uneven development in the city can be interesting for tourists. The market is heavily export-oriented. Very unusual in this aspect.
Glasses-wise, it's not much different from China.
Astra 21 Jul 2011, 02:22
you will definitely feel the warmth of glasses frame in cold conditions. nice experience.
Astra 21 Jul 2011, 02:20
Re varifocals, clare.
Hong Kong is fine, but don't expect it's an overtly affordable or extra-ordinary place for shopping.
It's formerly a colonial entrepot.
Now the island retains some features of an entrepot. It has never been a paradise for consumers.
It was a place for traders, now a place for corporate headquarters.
The local market size is too small, population 1,000,000 with a much larger population of tourists, is not the prime location for some sectors.

Clare 20 Jul 2011, 15:03
Varifocals - I was underwhelmed by the glasses in HK. I even dropped into a shop in Central to see if there was anything whacky and interesting enough to make me want to wear glasses more than contacts but came away disappointed. I'll be back later in the year, I wonder where I need to head for!
varifocals 20 Jul 2011, 09:53
Well I am back from Hong Kong glasses everywhere.- beautiful.
