Thanks te, for sharing your Target sighting and for your detailed description of the guy. You raise some interesting questions/possibilities there, which I certainly don't know the answer to, either as to his preference or his glasses. Another possibility, I guess, could be that he is primarily a contacts wearer, so doesn't care as much about the look of his glasses, and maybe you were just fortunate enough to catch him on a day when his eyes were tired of contacts. Again, thanks for sharing the sighting.

I had a decent sighting yesterday that made me wonder about something.
I was at Target, and saw a young Asian guy from behind looking at groceries and choosing some bottles of juice. He was late 20s/early 30s, dressed in stylish workout pants, small toned build with a nice ass, and of course, glasses. I suspected high RX since he was Asian, and then I saw the light flashing in that way (still viewing from behind him) that shows the lenses were strong. I was discreet, but stayed in the area long enough to see him when he turned around with his shopping cart, and yes, his small rectangular frames looked great and the cut-in was deep. Maybe -10. Gay or straight? I have a very hard time figuring that out these days, but hopefully gay!
What I also noticed was that even though his frames were smaller, there was plenty of unpolished lens edge visible protruding beyond the black frames. That was a little surprising to me -- young, stylish guy, who's very myopic, but apparently didn't bother to get high index lenses for his glasses. I wonder, was it just not recommended, or is it a cultural thing not to care? Or it could possibly be that he doesn't like the vision with higher index lenses. Of course, I love the look, but I think his lenses could have been thinner at that size, unless I underestimated the prescription and it's up higher in the teens than I thought (I only got a quick glance facing him, trying to be discreet.)
At any rate, it was a sexy sighting.

Another trip to the local big box home improvement store today and another good sighting, although not as good as the one shared recently. This time I had to do a special order of some flooring and was fortunate enough to be helped by a younger myopic guy (his general looks and glasses reminded me lot of daviewheeler, if you know who I mean). We spent about 15 minutes at his desk while he processed the order and I am guessing he is -7 or so, but several times he had to move his face closer to the screen to read some finer details. After the order was finished, I was hoping for a minute or 2 of general chat, but there was another customer waiting for help so I didn't want to impose any further delay on the waiting customer.
I also agree the recent Facebook post was off-topic and inappropriate for this thread.
29 Mar 2018, 14:18
That last Facebook post. It is nether about guys, glasses or indeed guys in glasses. And indeed things related to children are as far as I’m aware banned from here. Is this really an appropriate post to make? This just feels like another person trying to start yet another fight.
I have my own opinions and I’m not going to argue you its point. But this feels like yet another example of this site’s terrible moderation allowing the anonymous to destroy it.

Thanks Jamie for the feedback on what is certainly one of the best sightings I have had. Woke upo this morning thinking about it...., even before I read your post. Just wish he had been alone. If he had, I think I would have mustered the courage to try and strike up a conversation him. It was that compelling.
Thanks also for the updates on your own Rx and new glasses. I forget if you ever mentioned what you Rx is or how it changed with you most recent exam, other than the bifocal add. Glad you are getting used to, and enjoying the benefits, of the mild bifocal correction.
I can't recall if we have chatted before or not, but if that would of interest to you, I am at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and regards.
Jamie37 26 Mar 2018, 05:12
Thanks for another amazing post. He does seem quite the eye candy to find, too bad you couldn't find out more!
Be interesting to see how he felt about being in those thick glasses!
I am going through one of those thought changes myself, had been a bit less than excited about rocking my glasses as of late. Thankfully, just had exam and got new rx, after testing myself with the new rxs, have come out as a new bifocal wearer.
And just saying feeling really cute wearing my new lined bifocals!

Nice sighting today at the local big box home improvement center, where I spend way too much time and money these days with a remodel underway. I was heading to the self checkout and spotted, already in the checkout area, this guy that caused me to think I was seeing the man of my dreams. Looked to be mid-40's or so, average height and weight,average looks, but way above average in terms of his myopia, probably upper teens at least, thick and very reflective flat lenses in smaller black plastic frames. Certainly caught my attention in all ways. He seemed to be a very pleasant and engaging, guy just overhearing a bit of his chat with the female checkout attendant. There was another lady standing there also, so not sure if she was with him, or another employee. If he was alone I was hoping to engage a conversation as we walked out, but alas, he wasn't alone. He walked out with the other lady, so I didn't want to intrude with trying to start a conversation. I watched as they walked to their SUV and loaded some stuff in the back, and the she walked to the driver's side and he to the passenger side, so not sure if maybe he had a driving restriction or not. Certainly the best sighting I have had in a long time, so thought it might be worth sharing.

A nice looking guy named Jack Rice won on Jeopardy today with a good strong prescription,..I'd say around -13. Definitely worth the watch!

Here's a nice looking young guy who just got bifocals. He talks about how he will use the glasses as a back up to contacts but in future videos he's only wearing the glasses. Evidently he likes them better.

I agree, the Hungarian singer is quite tantalizing, and talented too! Video is much better than photos at showing off his prescription, power rings and so on. I can't figure out how to share the video either, but here is (hopefully) a link to the post:
GreginColo 15 Feb 2018, 11:19
In case you haven't seen already, you may want to check out the latest Tumblr post by Marcoeyes. It is of a very talented, handsome, and significantly myopic Hungarian singer who goes by the stage name of "Freddie", and competes in the Eurovision talent contest. If you are into myopic guys, especially wearing their much more than a fashion statement, ie totally necessary, glasses, this is a video you won't want to miss. He seems to not be shy about wearing his glasses in public, or even when performing, and some of the closeups are very exciting. Marcoeyes has featured him for the past week or or so, and has some great photos,screenshots, and commentary, but this video is like the cherry on top. Sorry I couldn't figure out how to bring the video link directly to this thread. Maybe someone else would know how to do that. Anyway, if your into this, and haven't already seen you may want to check out, and enjoy, this video on Marcoeyes blog.

In the USA the spokesman for the CDC(Center for Disease Control) has been on the news a lot due to the flu. Old photos show him without glasses, but in videos he has glasses. They seem to magnify. Why is he wearing them for interviews if they are for reading? Hope someone can assist.

In 2011, he's just using them for reading as shown at a panel (see 34/35 minutes in):

Thanks Roberto for sharing the barbershop sighting. Sounds like a pretty high degree of myopia there, but not sure if there is a specific name for it. Hopefully the barber handed him his glasses back before asking his opinion on his new haircut. Barbershop sightings like this are pretty exciting to watch.
Roberto 27 Jan 2018, 10:43
I was sitting, waiting at the barber shop to get my weekly beard line up. While sitting a handsome Latino man, about late 20's, button up shirt, jeans, black, slacks, loafers with black rimmed ray bans was wearing the thickest lenses. I saw him sit on the barber chair and he began to hold a conversation with his barber while texting. He told the barber how he wanted to style his hair. The barber asked him if he could remove his glasses.
The glasses guy asked if he could hold on while he sent a text to work because he could not see without his glasses. He took his glasses off and held them in his right hand. The barber reached for them and said hey man ill put them here (meaning his counter).
While he took the glasses the glasses guy's eyes were shifting.
He was giving these lost looks. HIs eyes were squinting, then would go wide-eyed, and then he would give a frowning look. It was quite obvious he would be helpless without those ray ban frames.
If you saw "scary movie 2" it reminded me of the scene when the girl took the guy in the wheelchair glasses off and how his eyes began to roll. Heres the link to the gif : https://www.google.com/search?q=scary+movie+2+glasses+off+gif&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=1-g0Ayu2SWmANM%253A%252C1ODIDBbNl9uc-M%252C_&usg=__Q06sVYWqjclIcvm_NyY4M-ySsvw%3D&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiFmf-A1vjYAhWL7oMKHQ9WALwQ9QEIMDAB#imgdii=_KefHErVIdgJtM:&imgrc=1-g0Ayu2SWmANM:
Also is there some kind of name for this type of myopia?

Williamitwasreallynothing that's a great video, thanks for sharing.
That Smiths album is one of the first I ever bought (on vinyl naturally).
He was cute but so tortured. I'm going to guess -3.5 for the prescription. Those glasses were very stylish for 1984.
Williamitwasreallynothing 22 Jan 2018, 15:15
Morrissey circa 1984 is still one of the hottest GWGs ever, despite his questionable political views:
Any estimates on prescription here?

Glad that you had a good time at the conference. Awesome to see younger guys being cool with their glasses. Makes this glasses guy smile
GreginColo 22 Jan 2018, 00:07
An observation and a sighting.
Observation: I was at a conference this past weekend that had an attendance of about 1000, with a variety of age ranges and genders. The most predominate group was probably younger guys,I am guessing 18-30 age range, various nationalities, but to me what seemed like a surprising number of myopic guys wearing glasses, with mild to moderate Rx’s, and a couple of over the top Rx’s. Of course they were mostly in fashionable frames of various colors, shapes, and sizes. So my observation, or maybe more of a question, is that the younger guys may view glasses as a fashion statement or accessory, as well as a means of vision correction, hence possibly less of an interest in contacts or lasik. In my generation being myopic, like myself, and needing to wear glasses was considered more of a personal defect, or burden, but the younger generation seems to wear their myopic correction more proudly. Of course when I was younger, I had only one pair of glasses that I wore until they broke or I needed an Rx boost, which tended to happen every year or two. The trend today seems to be to have multiple pairs to coordinate with a particular desired look or mood. I must mention that the nature of the conference would indicate most of these guys were gay. Whether I would have posted about this if the population of guys was more general, I don’t know. Any thoughts?
Sighting: out of room and out of time so will have to postpone on that for now. Sorry.

Took a walk around Chinatown and ran into an interesting family of 4- all glasses wearers. Mum was unremarkable wearing low plus glasses. Two adult daughters wearing minus lenses- one was quite myopic (around -6) and the other around a -1.
Dad however was wearing an amazing pair of glasses in a non conventional way. Small thin semi rimless frames holding onto two VERY thick biconcave lenses bulging even from the front. He seemed to have good vision with them on as he often pointed things to his family. They then came over and sat on the table next to me with dad taking out his phone, lowering his glasses to the tip of his nose and shoving his phone right infront of his poor eyes to text. He readjusts his glasses every time his wife on the other side of the table speaks to him and slides them down again to use his phone.
His older more myopic daughter also did not just inherit his bad eyesight but also his habit as her glasses spent a lot of time on top of her head when reading her phone.
I wonder if bifocals would work with such an extreme prescription as this man clearly needs near distance correction.
I'd imagine his wife needs to find his glasses for him if he drops them on the ground with his eyes being so poor and his frames being rimless.

Also, FYI, the guy in the video posted below is FTM transgender.
Here's the full video that the glasses clip was pulled from.
I think he looks hot, but I also thought you'd want to know!

Marlon (and everyone), check out my Tumblr at guyswiththickglasses.tumblr.com
and you will see a lot of images of guys, mostly with strong minus prescriptions. Many of them are drawn from Instagram.

Marlon 08 Jan 2018, 11:03
It would be great if we had a Jim H equivalent (see Seen on the Web), who could trawl handsome guys' Instagram feeds to find spexy pics. here's a couple for starters
08 Jan 2018, 08:48
I would say at least-17. Definitely around a prescription where he might want to start looking at myodiscs. He seemed very well off so his glasses were immaculately made- no doubt equipped with the thinnest lenses and best coating available. Unfortunately, his myopia is too extreme and anyone who takes a look at this man's glasses can tell that he is practically blind. I wonder what his wife thinks of his need for thick glasses.
Anyways, I've been in South East Asia for the last week or so and there have been so many encounters with men and women with high minus glasses. Myopia is truly rampant in that part of the world.
GreginColo 07 Jan 2018, 21:38
Thanks for the recent sighting post. Attached is an interesting old vs new glasses comparison, in case you haven't seen already. The guy mentions his upper single digit minus Rx. Good looking guy, nice Rx.
tinyeyes 07 Jan 2018, 14:38
Amazing sighting! Do you have a guess of what his prescription was?
07 Jan 2018, 13:00
Another great sighting at a shopping centre today. At a women's department store there were two men in their mid 20s in conversation with each other (probably waiting for their missus)
One of them immediately caught my attention due to the reflections from his extremely powerful prescriptive lenses. Asian, medium height with hair slicked back. He was wearing a fairly large square frame that are quite in fashion. However the trade off for being fashionable is that I can see the power rings together with the cut in of his lenses when facing him front on. Had a look from the side and his lenses stick out by quite a fair bit despite the thick frames. Obviously fairly heavy, he had to push the specs up tight to his nose a few times. He is so nearsighted I'm surprised his retinas haven't peeled off his eyes yet.
Otherwise he was nothing special to look at. His wife/girlfriend eventually came over to him and she was gorgeous. Wonder how Mr Magoo over here ended up with her.
