Your sighting, and almost knocking off the glasses of the minus 7 would have had Murky running off the subway to the nearest toilet to gratify himself, holding onto his aroused package.


Tom 24 Apr 2017, 11:31

Past weekend we rented a beachside house with another couple, good friends of us. As there was only bathroom, we let our friends use it first, and when they were finished I went in together with my wife. As we undressed and changed into nightwear, I noticed our friend had left her glasses on a cabinet next to the washing basin. Her glasses were most of the on top of her head instead of her nose, and she only really used them when driving, watching television,... I had always wondered what her prescription was and here came my chance.

While standing behind my wife who was cleaning her face, and applying moisturizing crème while looking into the mirror, I carefully took the specs, unfolded them and asked my wife to close her eyes. I delicately slid the specs onto her face, which came as surprise to her and she exclaimed "what are you doing?" while opening her eyes. I told her I was curious to see how Cath's glasses fitted her, and being a glasses wearer herself, she quickly commented that she in fact liked the frames, while turning her head and observing herself in the mirror. She said the lenses were probably around -2.5 and asked whether I liked the frames. Of course I did, we started kissing, got really excited and went into our bedroom with her still wearing Cath's glasses :) I put them back 30 minutes later where we had found them, as we both felt a bit guilty of what had happened, but we had a good time.


cubicle 24 Apr 2017, 10:37

Earlier on I saw a very pretty 30 something brunette with blue eyes wearing quite strong plus glasses. High index in a round in a big metal circle frame.

Made her blue eyes very googly. From the front you couldn't see the sides of her face as the magnified eyes took all the lens area, and from the side the lenses were quite thick in the middle.

She didn't seem self conscious at all.

We got off at the same stop and walked side to side for a while in the crowded hallways as she starred at her phone. So crowded that I almost brushed her hand a couple of times and I was very careful not push her and make her fall (she would certainly lose her glasses and people would trample them).

How do you talk to a woman in such a situation ?

Do you stumble upon the girl and help her pick her things up (cliché) ?

I really wanted to try her glasses ans also see her without them.

Do you just say "hi, can i try your glasses ?", i've seen a couple of times where a girl asked to try a guy friend's glasses in a bar, it works, but the reverse ?)


Cubicle 24 Apr 2017, 10:21

I was in the subway, standing in a crowded car holding the handrail. Next to me a 20something brunette was sitting on the foldup seat, wearing oversized plastic -7 glasses.

My stop arrived and I need to get down so I let go off the handrail and turn away to start walking off. But my hand brushed something. Not knowing what I turned back and saw the girl pushing her glasses from way down her nose where they shouldn't have been.

I'd almost knocked the girl's glasses off on the floor of a crowded subway car !

I then apologized and got off.


Puffin 23 Apr 2017, 05:51

I'm just thinking about all those women who, if they didn't wear glasses, would not get a second look from me.


Soundmanpt 22 Apr 2017, 12:39

Carrie

I was hoping to hear from you soon, but I figured it wouldn't be until Vicky got her new glasses. So i'm sure you enjoyed watching her get fitted with her glasses. She has wore glasses long enough now that she knows when they her glasses adjusted just right for her so they are completely comfortable on her. Was she rather picky about that or did she seem easily pleased with them? No surprise that she felt a little drunk when she put them on for the first time. Like the optician told her that the feeling she got was very normal. And it will likely take a few days for her eyes to fully adjust to them. I'm sure you had at least a smile on your face when she was told that it would be a good idea for her to wear her glasses full time until her eyes adjust. They don't that she only takes her glasses off when she goes to bed and she would probably wear them then as well if she didn't think they would get broke. She makes a point of always getting prescription sunglasses when she gets glasses which is nice since she is never without glasses. If she really likes her old glasses frames you're right she should get her new prescription put into them. I know the optical stores hit you pretty hard for just lenses but there are several places on line where you can send your glasses in and have the lenses changed that aren't too bad price wise. She has nothing to lose by doing that because once her eyes get adjusted to her new prescription her old glasses will be useless to her as they are now.

I'm sure you enjoyed watching her as she was comparing her eyesight with her old glasses, no glasses and her new glasses. Were you surprised when she said that she said that distances were about the same with her old glasses and without glasses and perhaps slightly better without glasses? I know the reason she wanted to get her eyes checked was because she thought she needed her glasses stronger for seeing distances. Did she give any idea as to how well she could see things at a distance without her glasses? Of course as it turns out she was right that her glasses did need changed but it was because her astigmatisms had gotten worse. So i'm sure she has to be happy that everything is better with her new glasses on and at the time her eyes were still adjusting them so it could even get better after she wears her glasses for a while.

Danielle I think she is starting to understand that she really can't go very long anymore before her eyes start to feel tired. What that means is that from the time she opens her eyes in the morning she is straining her eyes. She doesn't even need to be doing where she needs to see close up anymore. Everything from short to long distances are straining her eyes. You were right by not saying anything to her. I'm not sure why she is resisting wearing glasses so much. She already has a great girlfriend and she knows that without a doubt Vicky doesn't have a problem with her wearing glasses in fact she has to know that Vicky wants her to start wearing her glasses full time because she is such a glasses freak herself. All of her co workers knows that she need glasses and most if not all of her friends. I now she insists that she doesn't want to be dependent on her glasses but she really is and just doesn't want to admit it. You and Gemma are probably her best friends and you both wear your glasses full time. Thanks for the update.


Carrie 22 Apr 2017, 11:14

We met up with our friends Vicky and Danielle in town today shortly before Vicky picked up her new glasses. We went with her. When she put them on she commented how intensely clear everything was but did feel as if she was a little bit drunk. The lady fitting Vicky's glasses said that was normal and the feeling would go away within a few days. She also told Vicky it might be a good idea to wear her glasses all day for those few days and then as she felt necessary. I thought to myself "As if she needs a reason to wear them all the time!" She also got a pair of prescription sunglasses in which she looked very cool. Later on she compared how well she could see with her new glasses to how well she could see with her old ones. Distances were about the same with or without her old glasses, perhaps slightly better without and close up was better with her old glasses than without. With her new ones everything was better. She said she was going to miss her old frames, so I pointed out that she could get new lenses put in them.

Danielle had resisted wearing her own glasses most of the day but put them on to look at her phone when we stopped for a coffee and a bite to eat in the coffee shop where Vicky works (she got a discount for us). Danielle kept her glasses on after she finished with her phone. She took them off to clean the lenses and then put them back on. She complained that her eyes were tired already and it was only mid afternoon. The only way she can relieve her tired eyes is to put her glasses on. I was going to ask how she got on wearing contacts for work this past week but she didn't seem like she wanted to talk about her eyesight any further at that point.

Then off to the toilet Murky ran to sexually relieve himself.


Soundmanpt 21 Apr 2017, 09:09

Murky

Your encounter with the attendant seemed to go very well. And your welcome for borrowing my excuse, but I usually only say that I am a retired optician. You seem to have promoted yourself by saying that you're a retired optometrist. That's fine but you could be exposed if the person should ask you a technical question that a doctor would be expected to know. You did very well by pointing out that Ray-Ban is a famous maker of frames and that they have been popular for years and by pointing that her glasses were a good fit for her. And you made yourself even more believable when you commented that you could tell that she was longsighted by looking at her lenses. So well done. Because she had already told you that she had gotten them 2 weeks before and that she was still getting used to them. You could have asked her if seeing distances was still a bit blurry for her with glasses? But you did very well with what you did say. And of course I have a feeling you might be returning there in the near future. So if you see her again you can still ask her if she has gotten used to wearing glasses and if her distance vision has cleared up or if it is still a little but blurry?

to her for seeing small


Murky 20 Apr 2017, 22:00

Sighting..

Another briliant sighting at the art gallery this afternoon, my favourite attedant,about 35 black hair, about 180 cm tal BMI 18-20 in her black oversize raybans, with moderate cats eye, and expaned aural ends, about +1 to !.5,maybe +2 but worn so confidently, shiny black, so newish, I tracked her round the exhibits, but could not get a contact moment, till she Knelt to adjust the door stop, and I delibersately brushed against her as she stood up..

Oh sorry Sir, please forgive me

Not at all, my fault, did not relise you were about to stand ( put my hand out to steady her, and can read RayBan on the spec arms)

Those are great glasses for a gallery, very gallant, and arresting big and black.

Well thanks,sir glad you like them..

First pair? I venture

Got them 2 weeks ago, still getting used to them. (Makes to leave)

Do you ming me asking who made them, my daughter loves black frames, and those are rather speciaL

AND THEN SHE TAKES THEM OFF and looks at the arms, squints a bit, "here you can read it as I cant, the print is too small."

I almost faint as she hands them over, and I roll them in my palm,

" I see they are by Ray Ban, a famous maker, I am a retired optometrist,( Thanks for that one Soundman PT) and they have been popular for years, they fit you perfectly too, well done." Long sighted I see, so they must be a big help?

"I can see Ok without them, but at the computer, they make a wold of difference, I think I have needed them for a while. My mum sent me to get tested, but I did not want glasses till I tried them."

By now I am almost fainting with euphoria, look through them and see a few dust marks,

"Can I give them a polish for you", as I have a spec cleaner in my pocket, reaching out my small tissue box.

No its OK I can do it in the office.

Ok so I hand them back, and off she goes, my saliva is flowing, loins aroused, and heart rate pushing 200,

" perhaps see you again here? Goodbye."

have to steady up on the park bench prior to driving home.

I Guess You Find Toilets Stimulating? To Each His Own.


Murky  19 Apr 2017, 21:42

Here is the pair I bought in NY last year, and wore full time for 3 weeks,on holiday in USA but did not have the courage to wear once home. My wife thought they were quirky

http://bruceeyewear.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/visiofficecontraption.jpg

Walking up to the toilet was so stimulating, with several pairs of eyes following me

The air stewardess coming across the Pacific said "And now to serve the gentleman with the stunning specs"

and four rows of Pax turned to see me, a wonderful moment, but I felt that I could not be taken seriously at work, in these.

Any comments?


murky  19 Apr 2017, 21:28

Jaydat that pic of those Paradise spex is the best I have ever seen, what a sighting!


Murky  19 Apr 2017, 20:53

So, about 16 of us currently visiting here.ALL BUT 2 WEAR SPECS.

We ought to orgaise a convention, and meet at a glasses commercial exhibition, like Silmo, in France, what do you all think? I am in Australia, any others?

I have never spoken to anyone about it, but my wife recognises my choice of spex as odd.

She has a gorgeous pair of Nini Ricci gold frames, transitions, plano in the top,+1 in the bottom, when we were on a cruise, I got up before dawn, put on those glasses from the dresser, and walked about the ship, very aroused, and no one said anything, re entered the cabin after a few hours, wife noticed, Oh silly me, I said and changed to my +! glasses, have coverted them ever since.

Have a look at When I was at school post for kmore of my antics.


Soundmanpt 15 Apr 2017, 15:44

Carrie

Thanks for posting that. Very interesting indeed. So Vicky is actually slightly less farsighted but she has had a sizeable increase in her astigmatism correction. Since astigmatisms effects eyesight at all distances that is why she was feeling like her glasses needed to be stronger. It's good that she enjoys wearing glasses because her glasses are going to be more necessary to her than they have been. As you know her current glasses are actually weaker than your first glasses were. And even after your eyes were fully adjusted to your glasses you could still see well enough without them if you needed to. But the addition of astigmatisms is going to make her eyes very uncomfortable anytime she has her glasses off. She might even find adjusting to her new glasses a bit difficult until her eyes adjust to them. They could make her feel dizzy and nauseous while the floor appears to be slanted. From what you have said she has her glasses on pretty much all the time she is awake which is good because now if has her glasses off more than a few minutes she would almost certainly get a nasty headache.

Honestly I am surprised that Danielle's eyes hasn't changed since last year when she got her eyes checked. Maybe her eyes aren't going to change much anymore. As I recall her last increase was only +.25 so in 2 years that is not much of a change. But interesting that the optician point blank told her that her eyes aren't going to ever get any better and that she shouldn't try and resist wearing her glasses when she needs them even if that means she needs to wear them full time. That is about as close as you can get to telling her that she really should be wearing her glasses all the time now. The fact that she got a couple boxes of contacts to wear at work I think means that she just doesn't like how she looks wearing glasses. Sadly I think she could be getting close to going to full time wear with contacts.

Anyway you and Gemma have yourselves a very happy Easter.


Carrie 15 Apr 2017, 11:12

My friends Danielle and Vicky had their eye tests today. They are staying over tonight so we can have a good old girly night in with some wine and good food. They have just popped out to get some wine and snacks which gives me a chance to look at Vicky's new prescription that she has left on the table. She got it out earlier when she told us she does need new glasses and read out the prescription. Getting a chance to read it was an opportunity not to be missed. Vicky's prescription is now L Sph +0.50, Cyl -0.50 and R Sph +0.50 Cyl -0.75 . Looking back at an earlier post of mine here on Eyescene I found her last prescription was Sph +0.75, Cyl -0.25 in both eyes. So it's not surprising that Danielle's old glasses at +1.00 made things worse, she needed less +sph not more. Interesting that her astigmatism has got worse and her long sightedness​has got better.

Danielle was right when she said she was sure her prescription hadn't changed and the advice from the optician was pretty much the same as before by what Danielle said. Interestingly she did buy a couple of small packs of contacts (1 pack for each eye presumably). She's going to use them for work. She also said that the optician was very honest with her and told her that her vision wasn't going to get any better and not to resist wearing her glasses if her eyes feel uncomfortable without them even if it means that she has to wear them all the time.

Vicky did seem pleased that she still has a genuine need for glasses. Her new glasses will be ready in a week to 10 days and I am in no doubt she will wear them full time. I don't know what she thinks of the fact that Danielle is going to wear contacts during the week.

Danielle wore her glasses to drive here but put them on the table when she sat down. She grabbed them when she and Vicky went to get wine and snacks so she could read the labels.

My own gorgeous gwg is in the kitchen making something for us all to eat. She loves cooking but gets annoyed when her glasses steam up if she gets too close to a pan when she takes the lid off or too close to the oven when she opens the door.


jaydat 14 Apr 2017, 00:42

I was out for the evening last night and met up with a few friends for a bite to eat.Sitting at the bar was a gorgeous lady of maybe 40 / 45 wearing the most stunning glasses I have ever seen, not too good on prescription estimates but I reckon she was around -4 to -6 only based on me being -4 and the cut in seemed similar to mine. As soon as I got home I searched online and found what I think were her specs ,a French company called Parasite, some very nice frames on their site.

Two long-term sightings

I am taking the bus each morning for years now and some fellow passengers seem to do the same.

One girl was about 9 or 10 when I first saw her in glasses. Didn't see her often but over the years I saw her with several pairs of glasses, always noticably stronger than the previous one. Later she obviously had contacts, so I didn't see her in glasses for a while. In the meantime she became a young lady, about 20 years old and when she doesn't wear contacts she can be seen in a pair of large Ray Bans and I estimate her rx to be about -7 or -8. So cool.

Another young woman, about 20 years old, often enters the bus with no glasses on, takes out her phone and starts doing something, playing or texting. After a minute or so she puts her glasses on, quite strong plus glasses and I wonder why she doesn't wear them on the way to the bus. She looks out of the window with them on too, so they are not just reading glasses. I estimate her rx to be about +6 at least. She keeps them on when she leaves the bus and probably for the rest of the day.

I love public transport, so much more to see than going to work by car!!


Soundmanpt 12 Apr 2017, 10:26

Carrie

I'm looking forward to the weekend now that you have told me that Vicky and Daniele will be getting their eyes checked. So I really hope that you have maybe made plans on getting together with them later on Saturday or Sunday.

I forgot to mention that when Vicky tried wearing Danielle's old +1.00 glasses and she said that they didn't help and only made her vision seem worse. I'm sure Vicky had to wonder why since she actually wore those very glasses for a long while before she got her own glasses. Well the reason is very simple. When Vicky got her eyes examined she was given her first real prescription which also included astigmatism correction in her glasses. This is something you now know about yourself. You only have a small amount but you notice the difference the make in your glasses. That's why Danielle's glasses didn't seem to help. From now on she won't be able to wear any of Danielle's old glasses anymore because of that. So she is going to be relying on her own need for glasses from now on.


Cactus Jack 10 Apr 2017, 11:55

Anon,

There is nothing she could have done to become that Myopic, unless she was doing GOC. Very high, natural Myopia, is almost always caused by Genetics. There could be some contribution by visual environment factors, but that is typically very small.

 10 Apr 2017, 08:55

At the shops the other day- a seriously nearsighted late 20s redhead with big plastic frames, she must be at least -13. Her glasses kept sliding down every time she looks down and looked really awkward on her due to the extreme prescription- you can see white rings even at the bottom of the lenses. The frames hid the thick lenses really well as it was barely noticeable but they must be really heavy. What did she do to her poor eyes to get them this bad? Poor girl must be completely helpless without them!


Soundmanpt 09 Apr 2017, 11:22

Carrie

Did you find a way of asking Vicky if she was planning on getting her eyes examined or did she just mention it? I'm not at all surprised that Vicky wants to get her eyes examined and i'm sure she is hoping that she will be needing stronger glasses. If she goes in telling the doctor that her distance vision doesn't seem quite as clear she likely get an increase even if she doesn't really need an increase. Just like you have always heard that the customer is always right. Well that same thing applies here. The patient is always right. Because if she feels like her glasses are too weak she won't be happy be told that her eyes didn't change because it is in her mind that they did. So it is much easier for the doctor to simply increase her by maybe +.50 in both eyes. The doctor knows that her eyes will be able to adjust to a little stronger glasses and she will be happy and they will be happy because she will likely buy new glasses form them as well. Everybody wins! Nice that she is making Danielle get her eyes checked too. Now of course with Danielle the last thing she wants to hear is that she needs an increase. But remember her last eye exam was a year ago. And as you pointed out at that time since the increase wasn't much she didn't get new glasses. But not long when her glasses broke she did finally get the prescription she was given a year ago put into her new glasses. And sadly for Danielle it seems that every time she gets her eyes examined they get a little worse. So it is very possible that she might need another increase this time. But since her glasses aren't very old they might be nice to her and change the lenses for her at no charge. So I think Vicky will be getting an increase and new glasses which is exactly what she wants and Danielle is hard to say either way. Her job as a graphic designer has taken its toll on her eyes because everything she does is straining her eyes.


Carrie 09 Apr 2017, 03:47

My friend Vicky thinks she needs new glasses. She said distances don't seem quite so clear. She tried Danielle's old +1.00 glasses (the ones she wore before getting her own) but they actually make it worse. She has booked an eye test for both herself and Danielle for next Saturday. Danielle agreed to get her eyes tested so Vicky wouldn't nag her. It's very nearly a year since they last had their eyes tested but Danielle only got new glasses earlier this year only because her existing ones broke. Danielle is sure her prescription won't change.


Brett 02 Apr 2017, 12:30

Soundman, that was kind of what we thought too: she changed to glasses to "prove" she had them, but it also almost seemed like she wanted to show solidarity or something with my wife. Like she was truly genuinely excited to see the trifocals. And definitely seemed to like her own bifocals. She didn't really get into any details about why she tried progressives or if her contacts are bifocal. I was kind of surprised she carried her glasses to work with her when she was wearing contacts. I was thinking the co-worker could probably see better through the add because her minus wasn't as strong as the other one's, but maybe yeah it was better than her own prescription. I have definitely wondered the last few years as the bigger glasses haven gotten popular, if it was for progressive compatible frames. It would be interesting to hear the statistics on college kids that have adds.


Soundmanpt 02 Apr 2017, 09:39

Brett

You and your wife had an interesting sighting for sure. I'm sure you were quite surprised when that young attractive clerk complemented your wife on her frames an that she thought it was "so cool" that she wears trifocals. But even more surprising when she admitted to trying progressives, but she always felt sick and off balance so she went back to wearing bifocals. I wonder if she maybe thought that you and your wife didn't really believe her because i'm sure plenty of people have commented about how young she is to be wearing bifocals. That was probably why she tried wearing progressives because that way no one would know that she was really wearing bifocals which would end the comments. So that could be why she felt like she needed to prove to you that she was telling the truth. I'm sure her contacts must cost her quite a good bit. So by wearing contacts she doesn't get all those questions about her wearing bifocals. But at home she wears her glasses and she already plans after college to be staring at a computer screen while wearing glasses. But it was nice that her glasses wearing co worker asked to try her glasses on. I'm not at all surprised that the co worker seemed to like how well she could see through the add segment. It was probably more comfortable than her own glasses. It used to be not that long ago that prescribing a woman with her first bifocals was like a fate worse than death. It was like they were being called "old" because bifocals was something you never got until you were into or past your 40's. But now it is not nearly as rare to find someone 20 wearing bifocals, of course many of them get progressives so there is no tell tale line. It would be interesting to see a survey as to how many college students now wear bifocals.


Brett  01 Apr 2017, 20:41

Thanks Oscar, I forgot to mention earlier that your sighting sounds nice too. The hearing aids and glasses combo in a younger lady is nice.


Oscar 01 Apr 2017, 19:01

Brett - what a great sighting. Teens/college girls in bifocals are usually stunning - and far too rare.


Brett 01 Apr 2017, 18:31

Haven't posted anything in a while, but had an interaction that was too good not to mention. My wife is farsighted/astigmatism and has had multifocals since high school and about 5 years started with lined trifocals when she was in her late 20's. For the last few years, she has only worn trifocals and likes them better than progressives. It doesn't come up much when go out, but once in a while somebody says something. The other day we stopped for fast food and the clerk was late teens/early 20s, about 5'8, attractive, blonde hair, nice white teeth/good smile. At the time was wearing contacts. She commented to my wife that she really liked her frames and thought it was "so cool" she wears trifocals. Then she told us that she tried progressives, always felt sick or off balance and went back to bifocals. We ordered and went and sat down and didn't think much of it, but then the same girl came out and over to our table as we were finishing, wearing bifocals, as confident as ever, and smiling big and pointed at her glasses saying she wanted to show us so she took out her contacts. Nice black plastic, fairly modern style cat eye, prescription was about -5, and definitely the bifocal line was nice and prominent. Could see the power the rings but the thick plastic frames covered the lenses nearly entirely. Said she always wears her glasses when studying at home at nights, and that her career goal after college would be staring at a computer so will probably just wear glasses then. Another clerk was nearby cleaning tables and overhead some of this, also probably teens, kind of cute, and wearing what appeared to be -3ish range in just a traditional gunmetal rectangular frame, as the bifocal clerk was walking away, she said I want to try your glasses. So from where I was sitting I could see/overhear how that went. Clerk #2 said she could see thru the bifocal part but the top was too strong and that she could tell her astigmatism wasn't corrected. Was fun watching her look down through the segments for the first time and figure that out. Bifocal clerk said yeah she doesn't have astigmatism. As they were walking back to the counter, a male clerk was manning the register (wearing low + glasses) said to the 2nd clerk, those plastic frames looked nice on you. So definitely no embarrassment by these folks about glasses, and it was fun seeing such confident young people and their glasses.

Oscar,

You understand the situation much better than I do.

Oscar 01 Apr 2017, 17:18

Cactus Jack - I know. I've had a hearing aid for my right ear since I was 7 years old (my left ear has no hearing).


Cactus Jack 01 Apr 2017, 16:53

Oscar,

Hearing aids don't always work well in high noise environments. They are not like wearing glasses. You have amazing ability to sort out what you want to hear in a noisy environment with natural hearing. If you wear hearing aids, you loose that ability. Even if you wear two hearings aids, you loose a lot of ability to detect where sound is coming from. Two hearings aids are better than 1, but not as good as your natural hearing even with mild hearing loss.

Like a lot of older people, I have high frequency hearing loss (above 2 KHz). With "open fit" Behind-the-Ear (BTE) hearing aids I can hear up to about 6 KHz. Open fit hearing aids have a hole in the ear mold or passages in the transducer that fits in the ear canal to let the lower frequencies in. My hearing aids do nothing below 2 KHz, but amplify frequencies from 2K to 6K. They work pretty good, but are not perfect. They have two microphones that I can select to only use the forward pickup in a location where the people I want to hear are in front of me, but not the ambient noise. Another disadvantage is that if I hear an emergency vehicle siren, I can't tell where it is coming from and I have to look all around me to try to detect flashing lights.

In-the-ear hearing aids, typically do not have very good low frequency response because they are so small and the transducer can not push enough air to move the ear drum very much. After trying both types, I prefer the BTE type because the sound is more natural. To me, wearing hearing aids is no different than wearing glasses. They are just tools that help me function better. If someone does not like it, tough!

Wonderful sighting at Piccadilly Circus underground station today. I found myself on the escalator behind a curvy girl in tight jeans with her red hair in a ponytail - showing her behind-the-ear hearing aids. That was exciting enough (I love seeing pretty girls in hearing aids) but when we got to the platform I was able to take a look at her glasses from the front. They were stylish Raybans, about -10, or maybe a little bit stronger - very nice indeed. She was mid-20s, with a gorgeous smiling face framed by her red hair, and chatting with her boyfriend/husband. I noticed that she was watching his lips rather than his eyes through her strong glasses so that she could hear what he was saying. The whole sighting was incredibly sexy, and continued for the next five stations on the train itself until I had to get off. Made my day.

I am learning from you how to charm the bespectacled women.

Have not yet perfected it, but still trying.

The most likely reason for that sparkle in her eye, is the excitement she has from meeting such a charmer as you Likeliness..

Soft Contacts can usually be seen, as a soft line outside the limbus, the old hard ones were easy to spot sitting right central on the cornea.

Yesterday I was again helping out at my friend's store.

In walked a very pretty auburn haired, 5'8" woman.

She had the most beautiful blue eyes,but what was significant is that they had an amazing sparkle to them,that I have never seen before.

As she spoke to me about what she wanted to purchase, it was fascinating to see the sparkle change as she moved her head,and the store lights hit her eyes at different angles.

I can't help but wonder if that amazing sparkle is from some very strong contact lenses.If so would they be plus, or minus,and perhaps gas perms.

She had a very friendly personality,and we talked for about ten minutes, all of which I made eye contact with those lovely eyes.

I am hoping that she will come in again on a day that I am working, and be wearing some strong glasses, preferably minus.

Julie phoned me yesterday, and said her new Zenni bifocals,and readers had arrived.She is so pleased with the quality,and with the frame choices she made.

She said that the bifocals are great,and did not realize how bad her near vision was, until she put them on.

She took Cheryl, and I out to lunch today, and when she met us she looked spectacular in the bifocals.The lenses are a bit chunky,but she said she likes them.

When we ordered our lunch,it was great being with two bifocal babes, peering through their adds, at the menu.and then looking up at at our waitress to order through their upper portion of lenses.I always love seeing Cheryl do that, but today was a bonus.

When the check arrived she said, "I will use my readers for this."She slipped of the rimless bifocals,and put on the readers.

Thats 15 posters, and all but one are joyfully bespectacled... any more

Todays sighting

Had to goto the path lab ( regular 6 monthly blood test)

She comes to the counter,slim, (BMI 22) half chinese; with the largest pair of pure whit spex I have seen, about 2 mm perfectly circular,with a thin black line against the glass; with nose pads, and flat 5 mm steel arms, slightly curved more pronounced near the auricles. Just screaming, look at me and my gorgeous glasses. I am speechless, flattened emotionally agape, I hand over my form for the blood test. I am only a few feet away from those gorgeous frame, and I can see that she in a low minus, about -1 .Hardly needed in an office to see, but what an ocular statement she makes, I must engage her soon, BUT

Are you Mr X.. she quietly intones.

Er Er Huh Er yes, thats me

Whats your date of birth, so I can look you up PLEASE

Er (still shaken) May 31 19XX

Ok sit over there...

I do, waiting to engage her, but back to the lab she goes. Drat, not seen again.

I saw an old friend who used to wear ugly glasses. She recently had Lasik, and is lovely.

Nice that Danielle and Vicky came by to give you a lift home. They really are good friends. And good that she was wearing her glasses. You had to love that your coworker and friend happened to walk by at that time and and noticed that Danielle was wearing new glasses since she last seen her. Little things like getting a nice complement on her glasses has to boost Danielle's confidence level up. Danielle's answer when she was asked if she needs them all the time was really interesting. It's really the same thing she has been saying for a good while now but I wonder how much she really believes her own answer. That the optician told her she could wear them full time but if she chooses not to then she should wear them whenever her eyes feel strained or tired when looking at any distance. Then she goes on to say that she chooses not to wear them all the time but she was wearing them then because she finds that her eyes feel tired after work even though she wears them at work. The truth is she puts her glasses on as she leaves her house because she needs them for driving, she keeps them on all day at work and they stay on even when she gets off work because she needs them to drive back home. The truth is by then her eyes are completely adjusted to her glasses and everything is very blurry without her glasses. So maybe after she gets home and she isn't reading she might take her glasses off around the house before she goes to bed and she can probably go without glasses on weekends if she isn't going anywhere. I totally understand that she just doesn't want to feel dependent on her glasses but i'm pretty sure that now anytime she isn't wearing her glasses she is straining her eyes to see anything now. Maybe seeing your work colleague wearing her glasses and seeming to mind that she needs her glasses all the time might be some encouragement to Danielle. I remember very well when your co worker got her first glasses. I think she liked her glasses but she probably assumed that they would be something like a new ear rings that she could wear when she wanted to and not wear if she didn't want to. She had no idea that it wouldn't take long before her eyes would start to see double vision without her glasses. But she seems to have accepted the fact that she can't go without glasses anymore. Yeah i'm sure you will just have to wait for a perfect time to ask Vicky is if she is planning on getting her eyes checked anytime soon. I'm really surprised that Vicky didn't enter into the conversation at your dinner party when the subject of glasses came up.

Danielle and Vicky met me at work on Wednesday, shortly before the end of my shift. Danielle had her glasses on when she came in and they stayed on. Her new glasses are only +0.25 stronger than her old ones but look more than that. I think it's the slightly thinner frames than her old ones had that make the lenses look stronger. My friend and colleague, the one with the prism prescription, always seems very happy to see Danielle and always greets her warmly even though they don't know each other very well. On Wednesday she said to Danielle "Ooh, I really like your glasses are they new?" Danielle thanked her and told her they were new. My friend then asked if Danielle needed them all the time. Danielle replied that her optician said she could but if she chooses not to she should wear them whenever her eyes feel strained or tired when looking at any distance. Danielle also explained that she chooses not to wear glasses all the time but was wearing them now because she finds that her eyes feel tired after work even though she wears her glasses at work. My colleague said that she doesn't have much choice about wearing her own glasses all the time as she gets bad double vision without them as well as not being able to see very clearly near or far. Danielle said that she has most trouble seeing clearly close up and distances aren't too bad but her glasses do sharpen up distances even if she hadn't noticed it isn't as clear as it should be. Danielle complimented my colleague on her glasses, saying they went very well with her face shape and good looks. This made my colleague blush.

As you can imagine I enjoyed hearing that conversation very much!

Danielle drove me home and she and Vicky stayed for a few hours. The glasses stayed on. Danielle said she is sure my colleague was flirting with her, pointing out that my colleague couldn't take her eyes off her and possibly used the conversation about glasses to get closer. I told Danielle that my colleague has not shown any interest in women and is very interested in men, especially her boyfriend, but I would discretely ask the next time I saw her. (I didn't tell Danielle that my colleague told me she has slept with another woman once to satisfy her curiosity)

Unfortunately there was no more glasses related chat and I couldn't find a reason to ask Vicky if she was planning on getting her eyes tested this year.

So there are 13 of us, that is 1.4 X 10 (-9) of the world population

And so to my daily sighting, while walking my dog

Elderly lady, on a park bench, tartan jacket, with gorgeous matching big oval red and brown specs, about -4/5, and stunning white side arms, red hair to set it all off

She opens

Nice dog you have there, mister..

Quick as a flash "Not as nice as those specs you have ,madam "

Oh you like them..

A wonderful match with the tartan jacket..

Well thank you, no one has commented before

( I guess because you are not a trendy chick..I think)

They look like you matched them up at the glasses shop?

Well, the optometrist thought they looked good, with my red hair, they were a tad expensive

But well worth it, I think

I like yours too, mister, that gold goes well with your grey hair

Wearing my pale gold beige cat eye Versace specs.. see them at

I do visit this thread (yes) but stopped posting some time ago (no) - I think the quality of Mister Mild's postings on Seen on the Web outclass anything I see in my life these days :)

I visit frequently, but no longer post here.
