Hannah Russell, the GB Paralympic swimmer was wearing her myodisc glasses today in pictures covering Team GB returning from Rio. She's obviously very myopic, in the -20 something range but I wonder if she has any other visual impairment. Her eyes are quite large and turn in slightly and in one newspaper article she was described as suffering from "extreme myopia" but no other mention of her vision was made. Would extreme myopia be enough to earn a Paralympic classification? Surely one would have to be classified as "legally blind", i.e. visually impaired even with correction? She swims in the S12 and S13 categories but the definition of these seems quite vague from what I can find out. If you Google images of her she is quite clearly wearing contact lenses when she swims and so I wonder what exactly she can see and how much it impairs her ability to swim. I notice that swimmers in the S11 category wear blacked out goggles so they are all completely blind while swimming. I'm not sure if this is the case for the S12 and S13 categories. She's also very attractive by the way. The picture posted on Aug 17th doesn't do her justice.

Thanks Jamie. After reading your post I was able to find a picture of Dale wearing glasses while reading. Guess between the inevitability of presbyopia and the concussion----glasses are here to stay.

Dale Jr. had actually posted a pic of them pre-concussion as something he acquired during the off season as he is at the age around 40 where was having difficulty with small print. He mentioned that when he put the pic up
Although I agree has been interesting to see him wearing the glasses more frequently.
Maurice 14 Sep 2016, 09:13
Saw video of Nascar driver Dale Earnhardt, Jr. wearing glasses as a result of a concussion. Plus lenses. I wonder if he will need to wear glasses from now on.

The very attractive and talented Sandra Mikolaschek, a paralympic table tennis player from Germany, who wears quite strong glasses:
Lots more pictures of her online.

Michelle Wie is attractive. I could be that slim if I was stretched out as tall as her. I probably only come up to her waist. I actually prefer being curvy and a lot of people like me being curvy!😁
I find British cyclist Laura Trott more attractive, mainly because she and my beautiful girlfriend look similar. Long lost sisters?😄 I don't think Laura wears glasses only safety glasses when cycling. It won't come as a surprise to you all that her fiance Jason Kenny (see Kevin's post) does nothing for me with or without glasses but what I do like is that it is highly likely that Laura has tried on Jason's glasses. If only someone had photographed that. Maybe one day Laura will need glasses. They are both brilliant athletes and also they are both genuinely nice people and I hope that they have a long and happy marriage (they were offered a large amount of money by a magazine for exclusive photos of their wedding. They declined the offer. They don't want to be celebrities they just want to be Mr and Mrs Kenny living quietly in their cottage in the countryside with their dogs. I think the only time they would like some attention is when they are in races and the support of people watching will help them along.)

Thanks for the Michelle Wie piks. She is an attractive (and tall) young woman with great taste in eyewear. Some eyewear operation should sign her up as a model and spokesperson.

As if proof was needed that girls with glasses are the best, Belgium's leading tennis GWG Kirsten Flipkens just beat Venus Williams in the first round of the Olympic Tennis while wearing her amazing Oakley glasses with a frame in the colours of the Belgian flag. She has a mild to moderate minus prescription but the frames are just amazing.
Nothing against Venus but I love to see an underdog winning, especially one with glasses as great as Kirsten's!

She has quite a strong minus lenses, ad she is running in them as well.

Being a bowler, I receive an email from the USBC each week with videos for allegedly improving one's game. One of the people involved is Carolyn Dorin-Ballard, age 51, who won many tournaments on the women's pro tour when there was one.
Sometime in the previous decade, she and her younger sister Cathy Dorin-Lizzi were given a major makeover that was featured on a TV show. Both women were given Lasik. I have not seen Cathy with glasses since, but Carolyn wears small, plastic, rectangular glasses all the time in the videos, and in the few times I have seen her on TV in the past several years. Perchance CDB's Lasik did not work? Before that, she wore glasses only when bowling, as she was somewhat nearsighted.

Re: the US Women's Soccer team, I have seen Meghan Klingenberg (defender) being interviewed wearing glasses a few times. She's pretty cute!
Looks like she is moderately nearsighted. Surely a contact-lens wearer during games.

Is making mayonnaise an officially sanctioned collegiate sport?

In news clips of the USA soccer/football team being congratulated by the president for their world cup win, the coach was sporting some spex that were never seen on the sidelines. Wonder if there are piks of any of the players wearing glasses? It's highly likely that some of them do need vision correction.

Thanks Julian, there was one image where i wasnt sure as the lens seemed to get stronger toward the outside.
Hopefully that link will work.

Qwerttyu: After looking at all the pics I can find I'd say he's long-sighted and probably has a bit of astigmatism.

Eric Sogard of the Oakland Athletics. I like his glasses, I don't care for the goatee, and I enjoyed his performance over the weekend against the Phillies -- 1 for 9.

Nascar driver Kurt Busch wearing a pair of glasses with plus lenses tonight at the Richmond race. Must not have been able to push the contacts into his eyes. We only see him in glasses rarely.

The big thing in Australia at the moment is the case against the Essendon Football Club and its coach James Hird on doping charges. It seems somebody may have filled the needle too full and there's hell to pay.
Fortunately Hirdy isn't taking it lying down. He has challenged the league and the Federal Government on several pretty basic points of law. Equally apparently somebody on the other side seemed to think that since it was sport they didn't have to follow the normal rules for gathering evidence.
So we're treated to some wonderful courtroom stuff. albeit crawling round abstruse points of law and we
re glued to the TV screen.
A bonus in this is that Hirdy's yummy WAG (W actually) is filmed there with him at the back of the court looking totally consumable in glasses. First time for me to see this delightful sight. Be patient with this embedded video until about 1.40 or so when you can see what the excitement's about

I'm sure I saw the beautiful and smiley Georgina Cassar with the Gibraltar team at the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games yesterday. I remember seeing her at the 2012 Olympics (she was in Team GB at the olympics but lives in Gibraltar so is in their team for the Commonwealth Games and could be competing against people from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland that were in her olympic team!). Who could forget such a pretty face with glasses that suited that face so well! https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=georgina+cassar&biw=1600&bih=837&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=F5bQU7ufJISe7AaNi4DoBw&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=sQDcJhRiP5VH0M%253A%3BdN7OBvX_nJ7SuM%3Bhttps%253A%252F%252Fpbs.twimg.com%252Fmedia%252FBtLGcuBIMAEdE8p.jpg%253Alarge%3Bhttps%253A%252F%252Ftwitter.com%252FVisionExpress%3B960%3B960

I've been watching the World Cup, and Kasey Keller, former USMNT and goalkeeper for the Seattle Sounders, is a color commentator. He's been wearing decently strong minus glasses throughout the tournament.

Wow, that guy is off the charts tall and extremely myopic,as is especially seen in the close up side view showing the significant lens thickness. I wonder if there is any correlation between his height and his nearsightedness. He also seems like a very well grounded and thoughtful young man. Hope we see him in the NBA someday so he can fulfill his goal of taking care of his Mom and brother(s).
Myopic Grant 11 May 2014, 13:40
Love those glasses he's wearing too,..must be at least -15! His prescription seems to be as off the charts advanced as his his height.
