Thanks James for sharing of your recent real-life encounter. It's great that you got to experience what most of us only fantasize . Too bad he wasn't more open to conversation/discussion about his vision/glasses, but great that you got to experience the degree of intimacy with him that you did. Thanks again for sharing. Greg

James you lucky guy

James 27 Feb 2017, 07:16

I have something even better than a sighting to report: a real-life, actual encounter, and my first of this kind (outside of my fantasies that is!).

I've been in Germany on business for two weeks, and started talking to a local guy on one of the ubiquitous apps we use these days to meet people.

He is very tall (like bending to go through doorways tall), very handsome and dark (olive skin, dark thick hair, very dark almost black eyes), not typically German looking at all, but apparently 100% German. No glasses or hint of glasses in any online pics, but nice and alluring enough that we decide to meet up. So, we go for a pizza, then back to his apartment to watch a movie.

As we get back there, I use the bathroom and BINGO, there is a contact lens case and a few different solutions. Cue this guys-in-glasses obsessive searching frantically in the bathroom for sealed contact packs or a pair glasses. Nothing! A repeat trip to the bathroom reveals that the solutions are for hard/RGP lenses. So that explains the whole no extra contacts packages. He uses a case that I traditionally associate with soft contacts, though, so that had thrown off.

I spend a lot of the movie trying to see a contact on his eye. Looking for that wonderful visibility of the RGP lenses that is such a thrill to me. No luck! Maybe the almost black eyes, maybe the low lighting. I'm sure marcoeyes on Tumblr would be able to give a technical appraisal of why not.

Anyway, the movie ends. There's not that much sex stuff happening, bit of cuddling here and there, but we decide I will stay over anyway. He turns the bedroom light on, and JACKPOT! there are his beautiful, flat fronted thick glasses, I'd say anywhere from -9 to -11. Not a very fashion forward frame, square and wire rim, no polished edges on the lenses. I'm going to hazard a guess that this guy has never been seen in public in glasses in his adult life.

Anyway, he goes to take the lenses out, and then there is a full 3 minutes of eye rubbing in bed. I remark on the eye rubbing, trying to direct the conversation where I want it to go, and eventually we get to him volunteering he wears hard lenses (although by no means does he volunteer this information without me "massaging" it out of him). No glasses go on, and then the light goes off. When he goes to the kitchen to get some juice, I sneak a quick look through the lenses. Strong! How or why he would go get his juice without them I do not know.

The next morning, in order to see the time, he holds his phone literally right to his face, honestly even closer than someone would if this was a fantasy I was directing, and even closes one eye.

A bit later, still without glasses, some more eye rubbing. It's apparent that he cannot really or see or focus even on me, still very close to him, however well he thinks he's faking it. So then, I say why don't you put the glasses on. He demures, saying he doesn't like how he looks in them etc......clearly very shy about wearing glasses. But eventually he puts them on, and I say he looks really cute in them.

He says that he has an eye condition that means the glasses don't correct his vision well. He also says at one point that his eyes are "very weak". I can't be sure, but from what he says, it sounds like he means keratoconus. From my bit of Googling now, it seems eye rubbing definitely exacerbates the condition, and some theorise even causes it if you have the genetic predisposition.

Anyway, it is clear that he is right about the glasses not correcting his vision perfectly. He's still holding his phone very close to read things. I'm not sure if this is because of the keratoconus, or just generally the warping effect of the RGP lenses (which I infer he wears all day every day from the moment he wakes up until right before bed) rendering glasses ineffective.

I would have loved to have spoken with him more about his glasses and vision, would love even to have said how I love guys in glasses, but my strong (and I believe correct) instinct was that this guy would NOT have been into it, so all glasses/lenses/vision related chat that I recounted above could not have lasted more than a minute or two.

Be that as it may, this kind of thing is a total fantasy of mine - the fact that you're not expecting it and then are unexpectedly let into the secret world of glasses, albeit only briefly, just adds to the excitement and pleasure. I'm glad I now have had a real life experience of this to supplement my fantasy bank.

Is there anyone here who shares with me the interest for guys in trial frames?

I know it's a bit weird but i'm really fascinated by those strange frames so i would like to know if there are others who like them so we could chat about them.

GreginColo 13 Feb 2017, 21:07

What a stoke of luck, James, to spot this guy again. Hopefully you will have more coincidental sighting of hi. Thanks for sharing this.

James 13 Feb 2017, 14:54

I just saw the same guy walking in the street and his flashing high minues lenses again attracted my attention!

GreginColo 13 Feb 2017, 10:59

Sorry James, my bad, I should have reread the original post. you sure did give us an estimate of his minus correction at -10 pr so, which I think would be in the range that would accommodate bifocals or progressives, so must just be a personal preference of his Thanks, Greg.

James 13 Feb 2017, 07:58

Just being my pedantic self here, but I did provide an estimate and guessed -10 or maybe slightly more. So for someone in that range, clearly taking off glasses to read is not going to be a viable solution without making a spectacle of themselves (no pun intended). The guy I saw may have had some special reason for having the weaker pair for reading on him e.g. maybe his day job mostly involves reading things.

GreginColo 11 Feb 2017, 20:26

James didn't provide us a guesstimate as to what he thought the the guy's Rx might be but it could be high enough that bifocals or progressives are not available. I think there was a post a while back from a guy who was -30 or so and had reading glasses with a slightly weaker position, say -27 or so for reading. Now that I think about it, I knew a guy once, who was probably over -20 but kept a second pair of weaker glasses for reading and detail work. I recall once when he set down the stronger Rx pair, while wearing the weaker pair, and couldn't recall where he set down the stronger pair so asked for some help to find them. That was some years ago so I didn't think too much about it at the time, but now realize even with the weaker pair on, things probably got blurry for him pretty quickly.

tinyeyes 11 Feb 2017, 19:14

Thanks, Cactus Jack. Yes, those reasons all make sense, but it seems to be more common than I would expect, nevertheless. In any case, it's an interesting phenomenon to watch, so no complaints here.

Cactus Jack 11 Feb 2017, 16:23


People with Myopia in the -1.00 to - 3.00 range and low or no Astigmatism, will often just take off their glasses to read because they are effectively wearing built in reading glasses. Sometimes it is for convenience. It is harder for High Myopes to do that because without their glasses, their built in reading glasses are VERY strong. Some people just don't like bifocals or progressives. Also, if they need biconcave lenses, they don't have any choice, they can't do any kind of Add.

Of course, there is alway Vanity lurking somewhere. They are concerned that other people would notice lined multifocals, but are pretty sure people won't notice that they are changing glasses to focus close. In some ways it is like the people who want to keep their need for glasses secret, because other people won't notice them squinting at menu boards, school white or black boards, and certainly won't notice that they can't recognize best friends across the street.


tinyeyes 11 Feb 2017, 15:49

Interesting post about the switching glasses. I don't think I've ever seen that before either, although I've seen high myopes take off their glasses to read (very close) many times. I was always puzzled about why someone who is already wearing glasses doesn't just get progressives so they could conveniently read, but maybe it makes them dizzy or something. With the guy you saw, James, maybe he just feels self-conscious needing to hold the material so extremely close without glasses. It's interesting that a reading correction for a high myope is really just a slightly weaker distance correction, and kind of a turn-on too! So, if he's wearing minus twelve for distance, he still needs a minus ten or eleven just to see the "distant" reading material without putting it up to his nose!

GreginColo 10 Feb 2017, 20:08

Thanks James, I hear those full personality transplants can be pretty hard on a guy, so probably better we just stick with being somewhat shy around around guys that are are so stimulating because of their myopia. I am that way myself unless I have already engaged in a conversation with a guy and he seems friendly and willing to chat a bit, such as that with a store clerk that I shared recently.

James 10 Feb 2017, 09:36

Greg, yes the switching glasses thing is a bit weird for a high myope, but I have actually seen it before. He was with a large group of people, but even if he had been alone I would need a full personality transplant to approach a stranger and start talking to him about his glasses!

GreginColo 09 Feb 2017, 22:11

thanks James; nice sighting you shared with us. That was probably quite exciting, and maybe more, to watch his changing of glasses back and forth. First time I've seen or heard of a myopic guy carrying around a second pair of glasses with (presumably) lesser correction for reading. Usually they just take off their glasses and read the menu, or whatever, up to their nose. Was he alone or with someone? If he were alone, I'd be tempted, but probably not brave enough, to go strike up a conversation with him. Thanks again.

James 09 Feb 2017, 08:21

A nice sighting at a restaurant last night. A handsome tall man, anywhere from 45 to 55, in quite strong, plastic framed glasses, I'd say right around -10, or even slightly higher. He had that typical flash of flat-fronted lenses that I am so attuned to that I can spot it across a busy restaurant.

What was interesting was that he had another pair of glasses with him for reading the menu, and he changed back and forth a few times, keeping the other pair on the table. I'm not sure why he wasn't in bifocals or progressives already; maybe he's still transitioning to that phase of life, or maybe he just prefers it this way.

GreginColo 07 Feb 2017, 23:13

Thanks te; there are quite a few pictures of him on-line, but always in glasses, so would presume he doesn't wear contacts, at least in a work setting. Of the pics of him, about half in rectangular frames and half in an oval frames, I much prefer his look with the rectangular frames. He was on tv again tonite so I expect we will be hearing more from and about him as the travel ban debates continue.

tinyeyes 07 Feb 2017, 20:48

Thanks for posting, Greg -- I wasn't familiar with him. He's handsome and quite nerdy in his glasses, even though his lenses are not super strong. Seems to be around minus 5ish, I would guess. Does he wear contacts at times?

GreginColo 07 Feb 2017, 06:33

The attached link is pretty long but hopefully it works.

Bob Ferguson, the AG of Washington state, has been in the news a lot lately. The attached you-tube video gives some nice shots of this very handsome myopic man. While he looks very young, other information puts him in his early 50's.;_ylu=X3oDMTByb2lvbXVuBGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzcg--/RV=2/RE=1486502813/RO=10/

GreginColo 16 Jan 2017, 23:01

Thanks tinyeyes; yes I am also usually too shy but this guy just seemed too good to pass up an opportunity to chat about his glasses, and it worked out well as described in the original post. I am actually getting a bit more comfortable in complimenting guys about their glasses, kind of like complimenting on their hair, or their shirt, or their vehicle or whatever. Sometimes they just say thanks with nothing to indicate a further interest in related conversation, and sometimes they engage a bit more as did this guy.

tinyeyes 16 Jan 2017, 21:43

Greg, thanks for sharing your experience. That's great--good for you for talking to him and even getting a discount since you were so friendly! I am usually too shy to say anything to guys in situations like this, especially about glasses.

GreginColo 15 Jan 2017, 20:42

Interesting sighting today that I thought worth sharing. Was at a retail store today where the customers are in a single que and then the next cashier to open up calls for for the next customer in line to come to their station. I wasn't paying too much attention until I was called to the cashier stand that just freed up and saw the cashier could be out of my dreams. Middle aged guy, cute, clean cut, nice smile, and glasses that would cause an immediate reaction for me. They were square plastic, tortise shell, with some metal accents, and myopic lenses appearing to be at least -10.

After a little bit of small talk I complimented him on his glasses, and he thanked me for noticing, since they cost him so much and he had just gotten them a few days earlier. I asked him why they cost so much and he took them off and showed me the side and said he is so blind that his lenses are usually very thick, but he paid extra to get very thing lenses that were not much thicker than the side of the frame. I said they looked great, but didn't mention that I have a preference for the thicker lense look.

He put them back on and said he also had to pay extra for the transitions (light/dark) feature and for them being progressives fir different distances. I asked him how the progressive feature was working for him and he said he was getting used to and it was working pretty well. But then he took his glasses back off and put his hand about 3 inches for his face and said he still had to do that to read something very small, such as the printing on a medication package. It was so hot to see him do and describe that.

He put his glasses back on and continued to finish my transaction. When he told me the total it was less than what I was expecting. He mentioned to me that it looked like the packing of what I bought had a little damage and they could discount up to 30% for that if a customer asked for such. He said he went ahead and gave it to me without my asking. I thanked him for the good service and for the conversation and he said he enjoyed and wished we could chat more but there was still a que of waiting customers.

It was specialty store that I don't have reason to frequent too often, but will likely be stopping in there more frequently in the future, and some nice and useful memories in the meantime.

Very handsome, and smart, Ari Melber, who is an attorney, writer, and MSNBC journalist was host of one of the MSNBC afternoon news shows this afternoon (01/02) and was wearing glasses today, the first time I had ever seen him in specs. He really looked great in what appeared to mid-range minus lenses in black frames. I hope we see him in glasses more often in the the future. He must normally wear contacts as he would probably not be without correction based on the look of his glasses today.

I found them on the Tumblr site. I wouldn't know where they came from before that.

A friend of this thread who hosts the blog spexyandheknowsit has treated us from time to time with posts about Jon Tyler, the super myopic super hunk who stars in a somewhat offbeat series called Paradise University. Despite needing high myopic correction most of his life, Jon is an accomplished actor and from what I hear, a genuinely nice guy. who has been very open to sharing about himself on the afore-mentioned blog, and hopefully we'll be seeing more of him. The series in which he stars is evidently somewhat low budget as they are having a kickstarter fundraiser. The link to this is on the blog, but one of the highlights is the opportunity to buy the glasses that Jon wore while seasons 1-4 was being filmed. My recollection that these were in the high -20's, so quite enticing for those of us with this fascination. I think in more recent days John has also started combining -20 contacts with lower powered glasses to get the rest of his needed correction. It appears this may be the case in the video made for the kickstarter campaign. Anyway, I thought I would post this in case any of you had not seen the spexyandheknows it blog recently. It worth a look.
