Someone said it's rare to see bifocals with the obvious cut in period for the bifocal nowadays, unless it's someone over 65+ years old. Then I saw this photo of actor Gregory Harrison.

Can anyone tell me what rx Richard Gere has got in his glasses? I think his rx has increased substantially over the years. Not only for far but also for close up. Obvious that he has multifocal lenses.

Thanks tinyeyes for the Adam Rodriquez video about his lasik surgery. As you said, a bummer that he had the surgery but the end of the video where he removes his glasses for the last time is certainly worth the watch, as you mentioned. It was also interesting to hear him talk about doing his scenes bare-eyed. Thanks for the post and link.

I knew sexy Adam Rodriguez was a myope, but I didn't realize he had lasik. Bummer, but here's a video about it that is nice to watch. I think you'll agree the end of the video is the very best part, so wait for it....

Were there any glasses-wearing sightings on the Academy Awards last night? Any actors needing glasses for the cue cards? I didn't get to watch it.

Does anyone watch "Grandfathered" with John Stamos? He wears glasses for reading in the show and they are obviously his own glasses. You can tell he can't see a thing close up without them because he automatically pops them on as needed. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/1e/86/da/1e86dafaf3dba74320bb0fcfff0c47d3.jpg

Two of Bieber's pictures look like they have plus sphere in the glasses.

@Julian: He is a musician, but I feel that mainly female musicians are posted on the musician thread, and the people who would be interested in a male celebrity are on this thread :)
Julian 28 Nov 2015, 08:37
ksnl: As Justin Bieber is a musician, why not post under Musicians?
More to the point. Ive always understood he wore plano glasses for effect. However, I've just done a Google search on 'Justin Bieber glasses' where there are some statements that he has perfect vision and wears plano glasses for effect, and some that he wears plano glasses over the contacts he needs. Who can tell?
Still more to the point, I think those Harry Potter-ish glasses suit him much better than any others I've seen him in; and the lenses in them look much less like plano.

They discuss Andy Samberg's vision from about 2:18. His prescription doesn't seem as strong as Chuey Martinez makes it out to be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YneMwx-M5fM
And in this one they discuss Andy's glasses from 2:35. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKWYozNgnRM

I've been into a lot of esports where there are loads of guys with really strong glasses - always good to watch. there's one Korean guy called Reignover who has a strong prescription but often in interviews puts in lenses and then wears spex without lenses at all!! I mean - what's that about? Just go into Youtube and google his name. It pisses me off as well when people wear frames with clear lenses. As someone who needs his spex those who don't should back off and leave they eyewear to us!!!

I just discovered the hunky wrestler Austin Matelson, on the Big Brother 17 reality show. He goes back and forth frequently between contacts and significant minus glasses (at least -6, I would guess). And as a bonus there's another player on the show who's cute and nerdy with a slightly weaker RX.
Julian 08 Sep 2015, 07:55
Cactus: you speculated last month about why, in the world of Harry Potter, anyone needs to wear glasses when you'd think eyesight could be corrected by magic. I've thought about this on and off ever since; but I think the real reason is that Joanne Rowling herself is quite myopic and wanted to provide spexy kids with a spexy hero as a role model. It occurs to me that on two occasions Harry's glasses were *repaired* by magic, the first time by Hermione on the train before they ever got to Hogwarts; and there are quite a few characters in the series who wear glasses - see http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Glasses. No mention anywhere of Harry or anyone else getting new glasses, or of an optical store in Diagon Alley.

Here's an article where Andrew Lincoln talks about fake blood getting behind his contact lenses... it's under the heading "It must have freaked you out a little bit when Andy had you in a headlock and just kept whispering, “F— you” in your ear."

I think most TV and Movie Directors and Producers have discovered, by now, that glasses with flat or "window glass" lenses are pretty obvious and detract from the story if the glasses are important (e.g. Harry Potter). I suspect, originally, they preferred them even for actors that actually wore glasses because of the ability to more easily control reflections from the powerful lights by carefully planning the camera angles.
The actual power in glasses lenses is determined by the difference between the curvature of the front and back surfaces of the glasses and the Index of refraction. You can have a Plano lens if the curvature is the same for both front and back. Also, these days, some of the AR coatings are almost invisible and reflection free . About the only way you can get an idea of a prescription, in a photograph, is to be able to see something in the background, through the lens, or be able to see the edge of the face through the lens and around the lens and look for "cut in" (-) or "cut out" (+).
One thing I never could understand about the Harry Potter stories was why, with all the magical tools that were available, Harry or anyone else, for that matter, needed glasses. A quick flick of the wand or a few sips of a magic potion and Voila!, perfect vision.
ksnl 16 Aug 2015, 12:05
When I watched it I also thought maybe they were a low minus but after a while I figured that they are probably just plano... I still don't know.
Julian 15 Aug 2015, 12:35
I've just discovered 'The Amazing Spiderman" is showing on ITV2 this evening, and I was interested to notice that although Andrew Garfield doesn't wear glasses in real life the pair he wears as Peter Parker are not plano. They aren't strong either; I *think* they're low minus. Tell you more if I discover any more.

Jake Gyllenhaal (in more fake glasses I assume)
ksnl 09 Aug 2015, 20:43
Apparently Harry Potter's glasses didn't have any lenses in them the majority of the time - had something to do with lighting and reflection or something.
Julian 08 Aug 2015, 04:28
I think Tom Felton looks really good in his low minus glasses (see http://mostmyopicstars.tumblr.com/post/94849127699/tom-felton) and I know he auditioned for the parts of Harry Potter and Ron Weasley before being cast as Draco Malfoy. I'd like to know (a) whether he wore glasses back then (b) if so, whether he'd have played the part of Harry Potter in glasses with his own prescription. Don't suppose anyone can tell me though!
Melyssa 03 Aug 2015, 12:47
There was a post on this topic last year about Alan Napier, who was best known as Alfred the butler in the "Batman" TV series. I watched an episode over the weekend in which there was a close-up of him, and the cut-in was clearly visible. (The Penguin's monocle definitely looked plano.) If "Alfred" really needed glasses, he must have had a difficult time playing his cousin Egbert in another episode, going without glasses for that part.

Does anyone watch the show "Forever?" Here's its handsome star Ioan Gruffudd wearing great glasses.

Last week on a Match Game '79 episode broadcast on the Game Show Network, regular panelist Charles Nelson Reilly, who wore very large brown plastic frames, switched glasses with Daryl Anderson (Dennis "Animal" Price of "Lou Grant" fame), who wore small metal frames, before the start of the broadcast. Host Gene Rayburn never mentioned anything about it, and CNR had to ask Gene if he noticed anything different about himself and Anderson. Since neither panelist seemed to have a problem wearing the other one's glasses, their prescriptions may have been close.
