My "drop-temple" glasses were all plastic, and they fit me just fine. The only time any pair of glasses slips a bit is when I work up a "shvitz" working out or when the temperature and humidity are quite high. As for my eldest daughter, she is a bit on the modest side and has not shown any indication toward wearing the drop-temples in public as of yet. My younger daughter has little interest in that frame style.

Are your "drop-temple" glasses a full plastic frame or more like a semi-rimless metal frame? They were made several different ways back then. Too bad your daughter doesn't wear them out in public. It would be interesting to see what reactions her friends would have seeing her wearing those glasses. I'm sure she would get some interesting comments on her glasses. Honestly I really think those glasses had a certain style about them Like i said the only problem was that because of the temple being lower they were hard to keep adjusted so they didn't slide down constantly. You wore those glasses for a good while do you remember having any problem with your glasses sliding down more then any of your current glasses?

Where to begin? Well, thank you for the welcome, and for letting me know that "drop-temples" is the name for my "upside-down" glasses. FYI, I graduated from high school in 1984, but I continued wearing those glasses for 2 years in college. They were big and brown, and my daughter only wears them basically around the house, using small plastic frames for normal wear. My other daughter wears small cateye frames, not as angular as most of mine are.
My husband, daughters, and I have always worn eyeglasses, never contacts. The astigmatism is quite strong for all of us.

So nice that you have decided to join in and not just be a lurker. You seem to be a woman with a passion for her glasses and you wear your glasses with style. How nice that you currently have 7 pairs of "cat-eyes" in your prescription so you can wear a different pair each day of the week. You even several more frames in waiting should your prescription change or you decide to replace one of them. The glasses you were wearing in your 1986 high school yearbook with the temples on the bottom were called "drop-temples" I remember them very well. They were very popular for several years. I dated several young ladies that wore that style of glasses and they all had the same problem. They were constantly pushing their glasses back up because they didn't want to stay up in place very well. But I really liked the way they looked on young ladies. your daughter must also think they look nice if she even had her own prescription put into them as her backup pair of glasses. Do you know if she has wore them out much? I have to think she would get plently of comments as well as complements on her glasses. As you know you just don't see that style anymore and that's really too bad. Seeing her wearing your old glasses had to bring back memories of when you wore those same glasses back in high school. It seems at least one if nit both your daughters have the same passion for their glasses as you have? Have they both only wore glasses and never bothered with contacts?

I have been reading items on this website for a number of weeks now, so here goes my first post.
I have worn eyeglasses since age 6. My husband has worn glasses since he was 7, so our 2 daughters started early as well (6 and 7 respectively). Each of us went full-time immediately.
I am using the moniker of "Catwoman" because we have 4 cats at home, and I own and wear 7 pairs of cateye glasses (1 per day per week). In addition to the 7 pairs I use each week, I have others waiting to be used upon a prescription change or if I want to wear something different.
Before I started wearing cateyes in 1986 (and I have worn no other style since), I wore glasses with the temples on the bottom for several years before that. When she first looked at my picture in my high school yearbook, my eldest daughter said, "Mom, why were you wearing your glasses upside down?" I told her it was a style back then, and I showed her the frame. When she got older, I let her get her prescription in those glasses, which she uses as a backup pair. And I did wear my cateyes in my college graduation picture.

I find i get ruined on with ladies wearing thick magnification glasses, do ladies think this is strange and insulting i hope not. We all have preferences of the type of looks we like. Ladies you are beautiful in glasses, and i,m sure you have personalities to match. Martin hugs and Love.

there have been tons of fakes on Vision and Specs. Why? Because most of the fakers get bored here and move over there to continue thier fakery.
manyatime 16 Sep 2016, 14:15
I've joined & posted on Vision & Spex several times, using different personae. Once, in reply to an obvious fake, I pretended to be someone whose myopia was increasing rapidly. This was as a way of taking the pi** out of the person posting. I got bored of that within two or three posts. On another occasion, I deconstructed another fake who has never since reappeared on the site.
Puffin 16 Sep 2016, 11:21
I think all this nonsense is pretty much impossible to stop. Controlling it is the best that can be done. That requires constant vigilance and a team of moderators.
Soundmanpt 16 Sep 2016, 09:20
As far as I ever knew that was always the thing about Vision and Spexs that I liked. I was one that signed up early on and have only used the same e-mail as I did from the very start. I will be more than happy to supply whatever information you might need need to confirm that I only have the one e-mail.
I have said more than once that I would welcome some form of registering on this so this crap would stop.
Val 16 Sep 2016, 00:53
I am the admin of Vision and Spex, and I can say that rarely I was forced to block users or IP addresses because of a user with more the one accounts. It's hard to know for sure it's the same person.
When I started Vision and Spex, 5 years ago, I wanted to have a confirmation from every new user that the email address they provide is valid. I had to abandon the idea, because I have received almost zero confirmations. Some people registered more than once because their accounts could not be activated. They could not post anything.
The sad thing is that our community is shrinking. In the year 2000 when I joined Eyescene, the site was very active. I remember that any new topic could create about 30 comments in only one or two days. Now, except "Seen on the web" with tons of links, no topic can produce more than 5 comments a day.
15 Sep 2016, 15:09
Soundmumps. Do you seriously believe each person on the Internet has only one email address? omg Are you SERIOUSLY that naive????????????
I can give you 15 completely different email addresses in 10 minutes if you'd like... IP address is the best indicator. If you register a name, use that IP address, then no other names can be used fromt that IP address. Now yes, you can spoof IP addressses too, but this makes it a little bit harder.
Tom 15 Sep 2016, 13:03
Concerning: agree, postings by Carrie and some other people you mention, are often rubbish, and we all know they are fakes. But we are not obliged to read their posts, are we? It becomes more of a problem when wrong or bad advisory from fake or amateur opticians can be assumed to be proper medical advise by some readers... But, also, someone experiencing vision trouble should visit a real doctor and not rely upon posts from some public uncontrolled website :)
15 Sep 2016, 12:58
"In order to be in "Vision and Spexs" you have to register and as far as I know you're only able to do that as one person."
Soundmanpt, surely you can't be that naive about the internet.

My Eyescene Posting for the day:
Puffin: I apologize for my part in the boredom that you are experiencing. It is why my postings on the subject of absurdity will be under "Site Feedback and News" and not on any other threads.
First of all, being on Vision and Spex is absolutely no proof of anything. Any of us could register for several hundred e-mail accounts and be on there as several hundred individuals. Do you really think that little of the rest of us to not realize that?
Secondly, I am not accusing you of being Maria or Carrie. Do I believe that they are females? Not at all!!!!!! Carrie is someone who loves plus prescriptions, has a lesbian fantasy, and likes large mammillary glands. Maria is some guy who loves collecting or the thought of collecting many pairs of women's fglasses and the idea of wearing them.
Both could prove otherwise by taking a multitude pictures with their hands holding each of their pairs of glasses in front of them from the chin on down. They could crop their face completely out of it. Maria has no problem taking pictures of a pair of glasses. She should be able to have many posted of her personally holding each pair that she purchases. Carrie should be able to post quite a few pictures too. Just crop the face out. Privacy is protected!
Instead, we can expect indignation at the thought of this. They should be able to accomplish this in the next 24 hours otherwise. More than one picture too!! It should be so easy to do.
Thirdly, you have no credibility. You posed as a retired optician, Jim Boice, on Yahoo and other sites. Yes, you do use different identities. As Jim Boice, you, in the guise of a trained optical professional do everything you can to put people in glasses who may not need them, increase the wear time, get stronger prescriptions, and purchase glasses without a valid prescription online. Zenni seems to be a favorite of his too. Seriously, what optician, retired or otherwise, would promote online competition and buying glasses without a valid prescription? Why would they promote competition that may do away with the jobs of the people that followed them into the profession.
Jim Boice's and your posts on here could be swapped because they are identical. If anyone actually cared, they could check this out for themselves. There are hundreds of Jim Boice posts on Yahoo alone. OR..... has the account been suddenly deleted the past few days? That would be mysterious.
Seriously, is your drive to put people in glasses, have them wear them more than they need to, or get them in stronger glasses so strong that you don't care that your advice may go against the advice of a professional in the industry? What set of ethics or moral compass??
Soundmanpt 15 Sep 2016, 08:24
Concerning, Worth Repeating, Concerned, I Detective, no name and all the others accusers
It occurred to me that I have proof that I am who I say I and that Carrie is who she says she is. In order to be in "Vision and Spexs" you have to register and as far as I know you're only able to do that as one person. So I suggest that you check in there and you will find that I have been in there for a good while and Carrie is there as well. Not possible if we were the same person. So if you're wrong about me being Carrie, which you are, maybe it's time you stop falsely accussing other people without actual proof. Now of course i'm sure even seeing real proof you will never admit to being wrong.
Puffin 15 Sep 2016, 04:28
Perhaps there needs to be a thread for pointless, repetitive arguments and endless accusations of fakery. It got boring a long long time ago.
Concerning 14 Sep 2016, 10:47
My Eyescene thoughts for the day:
Pledge: Henceforth, I will only sign in as 'Concerning" on Eyescene.
Idea for a new thread: Role Play or Fantasy? Clearly, As Anonymous repeatedly argues, there are males who portray themselves as women on here.
Message to those women with male genitalia: You are fooling absolutely no one but yourselves or someone incredibly simple minded. It does not matter how long these males with pseudo ovaries have been posting. That has no bearing on this issue. That just means that they are living in a persistent state of denial. Really, it is absurd!
If these people want to live a fantasy or role play, then they need thread specifically set up for that. Will there be any thrill for the women with testicles with a role play? Will anyone actually want to play with them on these proposed threads? Only time will tell.
Jim Boice, retired optician on Yahoo, Google, and YouTube: We know who you are on Eyescene. You were never an optician. Stop portraying yourself as one and doling out advice that you are not qualified to give. One can only imagine you drooling anddoing unseemly actions with yourself while you hawk the wares of Zenni Optical to someone on these sites who has mistakenly bought into your act. You should be ashamed. Have you no moral compass? Stop with the indignant protests and live an ethical life.

HI Fellow chatters, do you think guys like me are a little odd. I really love to date ladies who wear very thick strong glasses.
