Glasses Over Contacts (GOC)

Post to This Thread

notcooljames 18 Jul 2018, 02:49

Glasses now are much more "refined" than 10 years ago, meaning thinner glasses even in much higher dioptrics although still there is some space for improvement.

I have -14 meaning I am blind and dangerous :D So I switch between Proclear contacts and prescription glasses. The optical field you get to have with contacts, especially in higher power, cannot be compared to contacts IMO!

What contacts brand/models come in high plus?

Tweedle dee, Tweedle doo. The last posts were from me to you.

Soundmanpt 09 Jul 2018, 11:48

Please forgive me. I did it again. I jack off so hard and fast my mangy fist slips, cracks me in the skull, and coldcocks me for hours. When I wake up, the next thing I know I have posted here. I have so many bruises all over my face and head from constantly kocking myself out.

This last time I spent thinking about Maria and Carrie. I thought about sex between them and sharing glasses and I better not... think... about it... oh know... I have to leave now...

Ho hum Another day and another phoney comment being made by someone using my name.

The comment posted on "08 Jul 2018 16:00" wasn't made by me.

María 09 Jul 2018, 00:14

Sorry, that post was to Soundmanpt.

María 09 Jul 2018, 00:10

Oh, OK, you are forgiven.

Your explanation makes a lot of sense now that we know the reasons.

Have you found any therapy, or medications that help.

Maybe Weirdeyes knows of some, but then again you may be Weirdeyes. Who Knows.

Merde alors, maintenant on va meme violer la langue et la culture francaise, et on va essaier de demolir la reputation des francophones.

Pas avec nous!

Allez au diable, ignorants et idiots arrogants et laissez nous tranquille!

Soundmanpt 08 Jul 2018, 16:00

I want to come clean and say that honestly I make posts that I cannot remember making. I sometimes black out due to my excessive horniness and cannot remember what happened earlier. I also have a bipolar side so some of my posts might not seem as polite. Please accept my forgiveness as you will constantly see me thinking different posts here are not from me. Keep that in mind when you see that I say I did not make a posting. To be honest, they probably did come from me but I cannot remember. Yes, this is from me. Forgive me.

Soundmanpt 08 Jul 2018, 15:33

The comments made on "08 Jul 2018 10:00" wasn't from me. I would not be so rude by telling anyone to speak in English.

Soundmanpt 08 Jul 2018, 10:00


Pleas speak English.

spartacus 08 Jul 2018, 06:14

I really want to wear glasses at -10 full time with of course lenses +.

However I do not always support the lens very well and I'm afraid compared to my entourage I will take glasses super thinned 1.67 for not having too thick my entourage my always known with -6 -7 who tried the experiment to full-time ? How did it go?

Soundmanpt 30 May 2018, 18:33

Well I was waiting for that same crap to start. Maybe you should grow up and stop acting a fool. You're nothing but a piece of shit that loves accusing everyone of being a fake or using multiple names I been in here for over ten years and have only every used only my name as it is. Go back fro yourself and you see how long I have been around. What about you? How long have you been an asshole? Others may stop coming in here because of assholes like you but you're wasting your time if you think i'm going anywhere. I were to leave then that would mean that you won. Guess what! That's not going to happen.

 30 May 2018, 13:42

Are Maria, and Soundmanpt the same person?

María 30 May 2018, 03:59

Oh, come on! That María on 29 May 2018, 21:51 isn't me. English isn't my birth language, but at least I know its "astigmatism" and not "astigmatisms". This kind of shit is why I held off posting for so much time, even if I have kept reading. Between racists, homophobics, trolls and impersonators, this forum is going to shit.

My prescription went up a little, 0,25 on each eye. I believe I posted about it a while ago. I don't have any astigmatism, so stop inventing stuff. I liked GOC but I'll have to try it a bit more. For now I still prefer wearing glasses that my eyes can adapt to. I'll soon buy a pack of +6 contacts to use with a pair of -9 glasses I bought.

I have had a few interesting experiences using the glasses I bought, and I have some very interesting pairs in my collection I'd love to post about, but the unbearable toxicity in here demotivates me. Sorry Soundmanpt and other that could show real interest, maybe I'll feel like sharing some experiences in a few days, but now I grew tired of these little shits again. We'll see.

Dix 30 May 2018, 03:25

If anyone saying our GOC stories are fake please see my GOC pair.

There are lots of websites to buy contacts without actual prescription. Pls Google and see..

I'm planning another GOC outing tomorrow. I'll upload my experience. Hope I'll not meet any known people! ;)

María 29 May 2018, 21:51

Soundmanpt Yes, I do now have a stronger prescription. I also am supposed to have some correction for astigmatisms in each eye, but decided to hold off on getting it because I do not want to become dependent on glasses.

I also think that having astigmatisms corrected for, could hinder me in doing further GOC.

Yes, I do want to try some strong minus glasses for GOC.

Soundmanpt 28 May 2018, 07:57


It has been a while since you commented in here. Sorry for all the typos in my comment to you. I was in hurry and didn't check what I had typed. Nice to hear that you're still buying used glasses. Are you still going to another town where you can wear some of them all day long? You had started wearing some of your glasses around you own town to places like the post office and the store. Have you stopped doing that? Personally I enjoyed hearing about your adventures wearing glasses often times much stronger than your own actual glasses are. Over th e off season from landscaping did you have any interesting adventures wearing glasses from your collection?

After doing GOC, which do you prefer doing? GOC or simply wearing strong glasses and allowing you eyes to adjust to them? You need to see if you can find plus contacts so you can wear minus glasses next time. Since your eyes seem to tolerate quite strong glasses already youdon't have to be too exact with the combination to be able to see pretty good once your eyes adjust.

Did you get a small increase in your actual prescription? I thought your glasses were -.50 / -.75? I just remember that you barely even needed glasses except for driving.

María 27 May 2018, 23:19

Soundmanpt, yes I am. The collection has grown, the bravery not as much haha.

Soundmanpt 27 May 2018, 18:10


Are you the same Maria that was buying glasses form people in all sorts of prescriptions and wearing them in other city and towns so as not to recognized? You lowly had gotten more brave and was wearing them around your own town.I believe you were in the landscaping business.

 27 May 2018, 15:40

Well everytime I've seen anyone ask where to get contacts without a prescription I've given also check ebay, every now and then before they remove listings, and facebook marketplace.

Führer 27 May 2018, 14:39


Wow, you must have looked like an insect with those bug eye aviator plussies

María 27 May 2018, 14:30

Sorry. Links fixed.

María 27 May 2018, 14:30

Anon, if you are talking about me, sorry but I don't have any problem in answering. I bought two boxes of daily contacts in a second-hand market app, from a person that had surgery and doesn't need them anymore.

So, not a fake.

Trent 27 May 2018, 14:07

Contacts express does ask for a Prescription so I gave them one. There is no way they check every Rx, probably just for their records.

 27 May 2018, 10:57

All these people who are claiming to do GOC, yet when the question has been repeatedly asked where are you buying your contact lenses without a prescription these days, there is no answer. It's sad but I think we are seeing a shit ton of fakes in this thread.

María 27 May 2018, 07:38

Hi! Long time no see!

I did GOC for the first time today! I was scared, but it was a very thrilling experience.

I wore -6.50 contacts and an awesome pair of +5.50 +5.25 aviators. With my -0.75 -1 prescription I just did the rough calculus to try. I loved it! Used the combo, taking the glasses on and off several times, and it was hugely exciting. I'm not a fan of contacts, but they were much more comfortable than I thought. I'll repeat in the future, that's for sure!

Greg 25 May 2018, 23:22

Dix I loved your GOC experiences. Any more stories to share?

Dix 22 May 2018, 21:49

Hi yesterday I wore my GOC pair (-12 CR39) in public for the first time. I was worried there were any know person. But didn't have any problem.

First I went to the service station to pump air to my car Tyres. I went out from the car show myself with glasses. There was a helper to bump air. I saw he was looking at my glasses few times. I saw myself from the car window reflection I was like a real high myopic person. I'm so happy to see myself like a high myopic person.

Then I went to another service station to wash my car. When I went there I was few people there in the waiting area. I was bit scared whether there was any know person. But I was lucky. When I got down from the car my glasses fogged out and I couldn't able to see anything. It was a nice experience. When I remove my glasses to wipe them out I realized how blind I was without them. When I wore them back and look at the customer lobby I was some ladies were looking that incident. I was thrilled. Then I went inside the lobby sat on a seat where I can see them.

I started to play with my glasses

First I tried to clean them by holing them up and looking at the light. Then I tried to relax my eyes by removing them. Finally I started to read a news paper. I could see them properly with my GOC but I hold the paper very close to my eyes to show I'm struggling to read with them. I was those ladies were talking about my vision and my coke bottle glass. Long story short I could able to talk with them. They asked how I became so blind to wear such a thick glasses. I said I born with poor eye site. I knew they felt very sorry about my vision.

Then I went to the pharmacy to get some medicine to my uncle. There was a young girl who was interested about my glasses. I was she looked at my glasses several times. :)

After have my lunch I had a nap in the car without glasses. I had a good sleep and suddenly the car window knocked. I worked up and I was unable to anything. I was scared and totally helpless. I could remember where I kept my glasses. I struggled to find them but couldn't. I manged to put the car window down and asked that person whether he can see my glasses. He handed them to me from the car dash. I thanked him and wore them. He was a parking ticket guy. I realized how helpless those real high myopic people when they lost their glasses.

I had a good time with my GOC.

Cactus Jack 22 May 2018, 19:31


I don't have any experience suggesting GOC Toric Contact lenses to make pre-existing glasses, with cylinder, work with another persons actual prescription. In fact, I strongly suggest that you don't try it, unless you have plenty of money to waste. When advising people wanting to do GOC we strongly suggest that you NEVER buy pre-existing glasses, hoping to find some combination that will work. Success would fall in the miracle category.

Toric lenses have a reputation of sometimes being tricky to fit, for even an experienced ECP. The problem is that all contact lenses are designed to float on a tear film and move around some as you blink, to help circulate Oxygen, nutrients, and moisture to the Cornea. The problem with Toric Contacts is that IF they rotate away from the exact axis when you blink, you will experience very significant blurring, particularly in this instance where you are trying to match up the axis of two different lenses with a significant Cylinder component so they cancel each other. The Toric Contact is unstable, by its very nature.

Here are the calculations. I make no guarantees that the Combo will work or be wearable.

Your prescription:

R +0.75

L +0.50

GOC glasses prescription:

R +7.00, -2.50 x 10

L +6.25, -2.50 x 155

Effective power at the Cornea assuming 12 mm Vertex Distance (VD) nearest increment.

R +7.50, -2.50 x 10

L +6.75, -2.50 x 155

Inverse Toric Prescription to neutralize the glasses

R -7.50, +2.50 x 10

L -6.75, +2.50 x 155

Adjustment for north44’s prescription

R -6.75, +2.50 x 10

L -6.25, +2.50 x 155

Conversion to -cylinder for Toric Contacts.

R -4.25, -2.50 x 100

L -3.75, -2.50 x 65

I would invite any members familiar with GOC calculations to critique the above.

It is highly unlikely that any self fitted GOC combo will be wearable. Have you ever worn contact lenses where you know your BC and Diameter?


north44 22 May 2018, 11:14


my prescription is

R: + 0.75

l: + 0.5

Cactus Jack 22 May 2018, 07:43


What is YOUR complete prescription?


north44 22 May 2018, 05:20


I have experimented with GOC for some time and can work out the sphere strengths needed quite well.

I would love to be able to have eyesight the same as my partner, and be able to use her glasses. The problem I have is that she has astigmatism, and I don't know how to calculate what axis toric lenses would replicate this.

Her prescription is: R +7.00, -2.5 axis 10 L +6.25, -2.5 axis 155

Can anyone help?

Reenan 17 May 2018, 03:22

I have a brand new -38 pair for sale. Pure titanium frame, reasonably lightweight.

If anyone is interested I can post photos then list it on eBay.

Cactus Jack 08 May 2018, 05:18


Yes, you will still need an Add in your GOC glasses. Here is my suggestion, Right eye first.

OD (R) Sphere -4.75, Cylinder -0.25, Axis 5, Add +1.50

OS (L) Sphere -4.75, Cylinder -0.25, Axis 15, Add +1.50

I also suggest ordering a trial pair of very inexpensive single vision glasses from an online retailer such as Zenni. IF your distance vision is good the the GOC combo, try a pair of +1.50 OTC readers over them to make sure you also like the combo for close work. If you like what you see, then order the glasses you really want to wear with the CLs.

Please remember that GOC is not an exact science so there are no guarantees. Also, if you do not already wear CLs, you need an exam to get the Base Curve, Diameter, and Brand of Contacts. You need for the CLs to have good Oxygen permeability and Moisture characteristics. If you don't, you probably will not be able to wear them very long, with comfort.


Sparky 07 May 2018, 23:06

Hi .also I cannot read at all without my glasses.will I be able to read with the minus glasses combo.please could you provide the full prescription for my glasses.if I will need the add.i currently wear multifocals.thanks

Sparky 07 May 2018, 21:07

Sorry about the limited full prescription is L +4 -0.25×15 .R +4 -0.25×5 .Add 1.50.will I still need the add in the minus glasses.

Cactus Jack 07 May 2018, 10:09


Based on your limited information, I should suggest +8.50 CLs.

-5.00 glasses are just strong enough to have some Vertex Distance effects at the Cornea. The calculations indicate you need +4 to correct your Hyperopia and then another +4.70 to compensate for the -5.00 glasses. Above about +8.00, CLs only come in 0.50 increments. I would go with +8.50 CLs and let your Ciliary Muscles make up the small addition al PLUS.

If you have accommodation issues, It may be necessary to drop down to -4.75 in the GOC glasses.

Please remember that GOC is not an exact science. There are no guarantees that the combo will be comfortable.


Sparky 07 May 2018, 05:59

Hi .I need some prescription has changed to +4 both eyes.i want to try -5 glasses.what sphere contact lenses will I need.thanks

NJ 13 Apr 2018, 10:23

Jb, that's a find! Hydrasoft sphere aphakic lenses do go up to +30! Wow!

Inglasses 13 Apr 2018, 10:12

Understand the buzz NIgel... feel the same when I wear very strong glasses

Jb 13 Apr 2018, 06:57

Re plus contacts- strongest I've seen off the shelf are +30. Hydrasoft sphere, bc 8.6, dia 14.2, pwr +30.

There's one thats 32 I think but diam is small and difficult to fit.

NJ 13 Apr 2018, 05:00

Reenen, I don't know of any place that offer CLs stronger than +20. Maybe there are specialty places that do, but all the places I've seen stop at +20, which, depending on the vertex distance, would work for -27D to -30D glasses for an emmetrope.
