Out for a nice dinner last night. The hostess was very pretty around 19 with shoulder length straight brown hair wearing black leather skirt, black sheer top and black ankle boots. To my surprise she was wearing an eye patch! I was sat near the entrance so I could watch her periodically. She had many comments from the regular customers and I think I heard her say she had some sort of eye incident but no further information. A few times I noticed her closing her good eye tightly for a few seconds and then trying to refocus after. Was neat to watch.

I dreamed of glasses last night :-)

Sounds like the glasses I have, except they're black and a cheap Costco pair. I usually wear contacts, so I choose cheap frames.

2 days ago I saw a girl with low minus glasses but her prescription was not enough. Her eyes were a bit squinty all the time. A bit later, the bus was coming and she was squinting very hard to see the number of the bus. Maybe I have never seen this amount of squinting, her eyes were almost closed.

Here they are variously 1000 dollars to 150 euros

What does the team think?

At the classical concert last night, heard Vaughan Willimas "Lark AScending" and my soul soared as in front of me was...

A middle aged, grey haired lady, with a stunning pair of pure banana white frames, with a gold lattice pattern for about 5 cm on the arms. Slight cats eye look.

Her blue eyes were beatifully accented by the frame colour.

About +1, with some add, maybe +2 to 2.5, the max.

At half time I followed her out,( she was alone) and gently bumped her at the exit..

"Oh sorry, my fault, caught my foot on the step"..she looked straight at me,,my hraeart fluttering, at 150, I ventured

"Thats a beautiful pair of specs, lovely color, that off white"

Well Thank you sir.

"Are they new,and they look expensive""

Oh about 3 months now, I recall they were over $700, my first new pair for 3 years, so an investment.

Do you mind telling me who made them, as my daughter loves white frames, and i would like to tell her about them .

Ahh, she takes them off, and wait for it..

"I cant read the label without glasses", she cries

Let me look ( I take them on my hand, and gently turn them over, to see a golden Gucci stamp ( and can see the GG 3695 alonside) Oh bliss..that I could make them disappear!

" They are Gucci, just the best, and so well done, hope they serve you well."

I hand them out to her, and close the arms, she opens them, and puts them on

her striking face , made more so by Senor Gucci, quite the nicest frames I have seen on a face for a while.

I look them up on the web, now discontinued, but about $450 frames only.

Back when I was road racing motorcycles I went to a race at Road Atlanta. This the final race of the the season, so it must have been in Oct of '92 or '92. With some of my racing friends I went to a strip club in Atlanta (Cheeta III?). What a place - there were 3 or 4 stages with girls dancing all the time The girls were constantly changing. What made me happy was several of the dancers wore glasses (real prescription glasses). In the two hours we were there I saw 3 beautiful GWG dancers. I don't regret spending the cover charge I spent to get in there.


James X 06 Dec 2017, 01:09

Along the lines of selling sex appeal, I have to ask...What happened to “Lauren Elizabeth Adult Entertainment”?

Her glasses prescription HAD to be around +15!

Her stuff seems to have completely disappeared from the internet.


Dieter 05 Dec 2017, 19:33

I've been in several Hooters, Tilted Kilt, etc. across the USA and seen many GWGs often with relatively strong (at least very real) prescriptions. It's not really such a big deal. Guys dig chicks with glasses.


SZ6 05 Dec 2017, 11:23

Galileo - that's quite a memory! If it was in the 80's, when very big frames were prevalent and high-index wasn't commonplace... I imagine her glasses must have been very substantial!


Galileo 05 Dec 2017, 10:59

SZ6 - I have been to a few Hooters in different countries and never seen a GWG.

However a long long time ago I went to a strip joint where one of the performers wore glasses around -9. And she did her sets bare eyed, sometimes struggling because of that.

There were a few other girls on that night who wore glasses and all took them off to perform. That was in the 80s.


SZ6 05 Dec 2017, 07:05

This isn't a sighting, but a question about sightings you may have had...

Have any of you ever seen a waitress wearing visibly strong glasses while working in a "breastaurant" type of establishment - i.e., a place like Hooters, Tilted Kilt, Twin Peaks, etc?

I recently stumbled back on to this gorgeous girl's Instagram:

https://instagram.fbed1-1.fna.fbcdn.net/t51.2885-15/e35/16123094_451881921868022_3336278922781261824_n.jpg

From what I gather based on what she has shared, she is a waitress at a place like that. She has a -9 prescription, but seems to wear contacts almost all the time. There are some pictures of her wearing non-prescription frames, which I am guessing she uses an accessory sometimes when she dresses up for work.

It just got me wondering how many other severely nearsighted (or farsighted) girls are out there, waiting tables at these places that place a premium on the sex appeal of their waitstaff, hiding their poor vision with contacts. I have to imagine few of these girls ever come to work in their thick specs unless they have no other choice.

So, has anyone ever seen something like this? Share if you have!


Billy A 04 Dec 2017, 11:44

-14

Of course, I know, but for me is very, very hard to say just "Hello" to someone I know...

He wears one day -7 glasses, second day -13 and next day plus glasses. I'm sure this is GOC :)


-14 02 Dec 2017, 11:35

Billy A

Next time you see the guy go up to him and say"Excuse me but I really like your frames can you tell me where you got them?" If he is indeed doing GOC he prolly is an "OO" any you will end up in a glasses discussion. I'm sure you wouldn't mind that. Just give it a try.


murky 02 Dec 2017, 03:55

Lentifan, wonderful metaphors, but you need to seize the moment, and tell her how wonderful they ( glasses) are, with specs like that well chosen, she will be delighted

Mike, I am not a retired optician, I picked up that line from Soundman pt it gives one a legitamacy to explore the frames/prescription, and as most glasses weares know little about it, IO have never been caught out.


lentifan 01 Dec 2017, 13:28

Seen boarding a busy rush-hour train today, a pair of shiny new-looking glasses with white rings round the outside edges of the lenses. The glasses worn by a jolly, short, cuddly-plump girl of about 20 with a pretty face, milk-chocolate complexion, with woolly hat and scarf, her big round eyes glowing behind the minus lenses (perhaps about -12d). As we shared a pole at different heights, the view from obliquely above and behind when she turned her head was of many power rings and some lens edge sticking out behind the thick blue-black plastic frames which are just slightly too big.

Oh, to be young again! But sadly I had to get off at the next stop.


Cubicle 01 Dec 2017, 13:25

I saw a couple of pretty girls in shops...

First shop, one employee is a tall curly blonde that moves her head a lot. She had tortoise like plastic frames with quite thick plus lenses that protrude a lot. Difficult to tell her prescription but quite high. She is delightful.

The second girl is at the bakery. Blonde hair blue eyes, big boobs and big -10 glasses that slide a bit. She looks at the change very close to her eyes while squinting. I have a reason to buy more bread !

But I can't ask them for their glasses brand or something


Mike 30 Nov 2017, 23:21

Murky.

Your posts are great. That once has to be said. I really enjoy them. You have not only been a talented optician. But you are also gifted with sensible social skills and as a wounderful author here.

Love you lots. Mike

An exciting encounter..

Airport again, GWGs all over, but my excitement is roused by a blond, 25 ish withoversize back frames, and broad silver arms, passing beneath flaxen gold hair.

Moving to her side I detect low minus, maybe less than 1 even.

There is no manufacturers logo on the arm , and she pushes them up the nose each few minutes.

Her male consort ( covered in tattoos) moves toward the bar, seizing the moment,

" Gee I like your glasses, can you tell me who made them"

She removes them, looks inside the arm intently

"it says Ellery here" and I peer at the plain text with her.

"Hmm they look new, and quite fashionable Well done" I venture , "are they comfortable to wear?"

"Yes I got then last week,am getting used to them"

I am a retired optometrist, and I note you are pushing them up your nose often, have you had them fitted to your face" I enquire

No, I did not know about that, how is it done?

Are they your first pair then? ' She replaces them...ahhh.

"Yes, I had glasses briefly at school, but they did not help much.I got these to drive, as I could not see all the signs, and now I can see well again.

"Your optometrist can heat up those arms, and bend them to fit exacxtly, you only have to ask, and they will saty in place . "

"Thanks i shall do that next week. "

Wow , what an encounter


Billy A 30 Nov 2017, 15:26

I saw one guy in my city. I guess he wears GOC because he wears different minus power glasses, sometimes about -7, sometimes about -13. Yesterday i saw him wearing plus glasses! It must be GOC.. I really want to talk with him but..living with social phobia is not easy :(


 27 Nov 2017, 15:35

I saw this Asian girl on the bus who was wearing plus glasses. Which is strange enough. But when I saw her from another angle I realized her other eye is minus.


 25 Nov 2017, 04:58

One of the best sightings ever had today. Very cute Mid 20s blonde girl working at an electronics store. She was looking through lenses that must be at least -13 in a large thick black frame (probably the only type of frame that can support those lenses!)

Her glasses must've cost her a fortune as no noticeable lens thickness, although nothing could be done about the cut in and power rings which still easily suggests that she is blind as a bat. Everything was minuscule when I looked behind her and through the lenses.

She seems to be the type that takes a lot of pride in her appearance judging by how heavily made up she was even for work. Definitely not the kind you'd associate with this kind of nearsightedness. Probably a contact lens wearer who would've been mortified to have to wear her glasses for the day.

Puffin

I hope no one notices the difference between my eyes!


Puffin 15 Nov 2017, 15:10

I was out today in a shop being served by a young woman wearing glasses - fascinating in itself - when I realised she was anisometropic (one eye plus, the other myopic).

It took a bit of changing my angle of view to confirm this. Right eye I think something like plus 3 with notable astigmatism. Left eye minimal myopia (minus 1 at most) and no astigmatism.

I've only ever seen a handful of these, and they're all memorable.

*****

Then there was the nice shop assistant in M&S the other week. She smiled and said hello. Modest myopia of 2-3 dioptres, but quite pleasant.


Murky 24 Oct 2017, 20:54

Airport sighting

At the airport, and I see a 30s business woman, BMI a nice 18-20,

looking at her computer through large marine blue completely circular spex, about +1.5 tp +2, no Add.Nose pads,and a shimmer of blue lens tint.Alluring, stimltating, and sexy++

We load to the aircraft, and .. wow.. she is seated next to me. As I shuffle to get to my seat, I sday..

Beautiful glasses you have there,

Oh thanks,

must have been expensive, well done, they look great on you.

They are from Germany, but the lenses were more expensive

Why so? I am a retired optometrist.

Because I have a prism correction

Yes, that can add cost, especially if the number in higher

I have 6 at present, 3 each side I was told.

Base in or out?

Not sure what you mean

Oh, let me have a look, ans we can tell.

(Ahh, she hands them to me, what a frisson, as i remove my specs)

You are base in, like me, your eyes diverge a little, maybe some double vision at times?

Yes, when reading, the image will split into two often, thats why shae suggested the prism.

Good for you, I reply, and during the hour flight, I keep looking across tyhe row, at her.


Soundmanpt 22 Oct 2017, 16:45

NN Visitor

No i agree with you. i didn't mean to make it sound as if she was near blindness without her glasses just more difficult for her than her friend that was wearing her glasses. The longer her friend was wearing her glasses the more her eyes were adjusting to them. Probably the only reason she was starting to get a headache from wearing the glasses was that they probably also had some astigmatism in them and that was what was starting to give her a headache. If she wore them most of the afternoon by the time she returned them she was probably seeing pretty good with them. In the end they both must have had fun trading places.


NNVisitor 22 Oct 2017, 10:53

Soundmanpt

Some people can go around without their glasses. I've gone for a walk three blocks from my home. I cross streets at traffic light and can see through the blur green from red lights, the closer vehicles and I try to cross streets when others are crossing. My glasses are -10 with astigmatism near -2 way worse vision than this lady with -3 glasses.

Sure things are blurry for her and much more for me. Glasses provide clarity but in their absense most wearers if they're very careful can walk around both inside and outside their home without their glasses on.


Michael 22 Oct 2017, 10:12

They said it was a joke. First they only would change some clothes, but in the end they change all for an afternoon.


Soundmanpt 22 Oct 2017, 08:20

Michael

I'm sure the owner of the glasses had a much harder time trying to see without her than her friend did while wearing her glasses. Even though her friend's glasses were way too strong for her eyes she was still able to see wearing them even though they made everything much smaller. Had the glasses only been around -1.50 she would have been able to wear them all day without any issues and they would have been very comfortable to her. Did they say why they did that. The young lady that the glasses belonged to had to very uncomfortable without her glasses.


Michael 22 Oct 2017, 05:51

Last week I met two female co-worker in town. I knew that one of them wore glasses for distance. But this time the other girl wear glasses.

We talked about things in our company and then they asked me if I noticed something. I said that I was surprised about the glasses wearer was bareeyed ans the ozher wear glasses.

They laughed and said that they changed there outfit, glasses too.

The glasses owner said that it was hard to go without because she had -3 diopters. But she can ask her friend if she couldn`t saw because she were able to see with the glasses as good as without. Only smaller and she got some headaches after wearing them for more than one hour.

Fascinated!

Thanks for posting that. Shes not bad. Not the best looking aviator style glasses shes wearing.

The US version of the Apprentice was canceled last year due to poor ratings. Can you post some of the pictures of the women that are on the that wear glasses.


Carrie 18 Oct 2017, 10:28

The next episode of the UK version of The Apprentice is on BBC1 tonight. Around half of the participants wear glasses. Roughly the same number with both the men and the women. The women's glasses are fairly normal looking and so are most of the men's. But one of the men has some round glasses that make him look like a cross between Harry Potter and a Minon!😅


Tom 16 Oct 2017, 05:18

I was standing along the football pitch last weekend, watching my son play a game. It didn’t take long before I noticed a soccer mom standing 20m further down the side line, talking to another woman. I saw how the sun reflected in her glasses, and I eased my way closer to her. To me delight she wore my all-time favorite Chanel 3221Q frames, those in which Emma Watson looked so exquisitely cute.

I noticed her lenses had sizeable minus prescription were still remarkably thin. I was clear from her overall classy appearance that she could afford not only the expensive frames, but also the thinner high-index lenses.

She really made my day when she took off her glasses, held them with both hands 40cm from her face up in the air, blew on the lenses, and squinting hard she was trying to find the small smear or bit of dust that clearly bothered her. She then patiently rubbed her lenses with a tip of her scarf, put them back on, adjusted them other nose, but they came off again. The same ritual was done two more times before she was happy with the clarity of the lenses. I the meanwhile she didn’t stop talking to her friend besides her, who didn’t seem to have any interest in glasses or vision, and tried all the time to continue to follow the game, which treated me to several great squints.

She had her hair in a tight pony tail, which allowed for a great view onto the full length of the delicately ornate temples of her glasses. Quite an afternoon I must say!


Soundmanpt 14 Oct 2017, 10:37

Carrie

I'm no expert on the matter and I never had kids but I think it's because baby's have small hands so they can't really grab onto your face but glasses are much easier to grab onto. Also they could be attracted to the shinyness of glasses as well. You and Gemma were quite smart in taking your glasses off before holding her baby. I get the idea you may have already experienced having a baby grab your glasses off your face before which is why you knew to take them off this time?


Carrie 13 Oct 2017, 14:31

Miku

She had them on the top of her head and then put them on the table when she picked her baby up. I don't know how much she actually needs them, that was all she said. She didn't use them when we were there.

I meant to also say in my last post that Gemma did the same as me when she cuddled the baby. She wasn't going to risk her glasses with a baby that doesn't seem to like seeing them on people's faces!😃


Miku 12 Oct 2017, 16:05

Carrie,

That is such an interesting story. Sometimes it happens to discover such things and at times, I am the subject of such a discovery myself.

May I ask how you ended up discovering that your friend is a glasses wearer? And any idea, how much she actually needs them for fine print? Could it be that she can read just fine without any correction, but feels her eyes straining? That's pretty much my case and I have a stronger RX than what you estimated she does.

Thanks,

M


Cubicle 12 Oct 2017, 11:21

The other day in the subway I saw a beautiful young woman. Late 20s, long brown hair, beautiful face and big black plastic glasses. The lenses were at least -12. Lots and lots of cut-in.

I wanted to ask her out and try them on but she was with a guy.


Carrie 12 Oct 2017, 00:09

I've just discovered that one of my friends has worn glasses for reading since she was 15. She is now 30 and I've never seen her wear them until now despite knowing her for at least 5 years! She said she only wears them for looking at very fine print or long periods of reading and still has the same prescription as her first glasses. At her last eye test, a few weeks ago, she asked about ready made reading glasses. She was told that they would be fine for short periods but should wear prescription glasses for longer periods because of the slight difference between each eye. She uses a cheap pair of ready made glasses if she is holding her baby daughter because her daughter likes to try to grab glasses and managed to break her previous pair of prescription glasses! I wanted to cuddle my friend's baby so I gave my glasses to Gemma for safe keeping.(Neither Gemma or I want kids, either adopted or via a sperm donor and pregnancy, but other people's kids are fine for short periods especially when they are as cute as this friend's baby)

My friend's glasses looked around +1 or +1.50 (she didn't say and I didn't ask).


Tom 28 Sep 2017, 11:37

Walked to my car after a meeting this late afternoon, the pavement next a cobblestone street with tram tracks imbedded. I saw how a young woman tried to cross the tracks while riding her bike, but her front wheel got stuck, and she fell off her bike. Luckily she didn't really hurt herself, and there were no cars or trams at that very moment. I helped her to get up and recover her bike, satchel, and handbag together with another pedestrian.

While doing so, I also noticed a pair of bright red glasses on the street next to her bike. I picked them up and handed them back to her. She took them and was very thankful they were not broken (probably because the frames were of a thicker plastic, and I guess polycarbonate lenses). She told us she hadn't even noticed she had lost them while falling. Indeed, the lenses didn't seem to have very strong prescription, but she put them on again before resuming her ride.


Carrie 19 Sep 2017, 10:58

I'm too short to use my knees to hurt a man in the right place but I can punch or even squeeze very hard to cause pain!


Soundmanpt 18 Sep 2017, 16:58

Carrie

I really hope that Swap was only having some sort of weird dream and he didn't really take that girls glasses and pop out one of her lenses and made her go without it overnight or that he broke off the temples of her glasses.

I'm sure he would have been extremely sorry if he had ever tried attempted to even take your glasses from your face without your approval let alone start to pop out a lens from your glasses. I'm thinking your knee could do major damage if you kneed him in a certain spot.I think there is probably only a few people you would allow to remove your glasses.


Yeti 18 Sep 2017, 04:06

Dear Friends,

did anybody have a chance to travel in Taiwan and check if there's a lot of high myopic people there as it's reported ?

Just thinking about travel destination :)

Bests


Weirdeyes 17 Sep 2017, 17:41

I think Swap is just a pathetic virgin making up dumb stories.


Carrie 17 Sep 2017, 17:29

I don't know if situations described by Swap and Swap Supporter are real but if someone did that to me they would regret it! Luckily for me I am not helpless without glasses, so if someone did take my glasses and didn't give them back or deliberately broke them I would still be able to see them to hurt them enough to make them give my glasses back. I may be petite but I am not weak and have been told that I get quite scary when I get really angry.

I don't mind friends or family taking my glasses for a short time for a joke as I know I will get my glasses back fairly soon and in one piece.
