I see this more and more, especially on tv. They wear glasses that have no lenses at all, just the frames. I think it looks kind of silly.

I remember in the 1970s young people wearing glasses with plain glass lenses. I suppose it was for fashion.

I guess false hearing aids will be next.

They're jealous of this fabulous fashion accessory that only us visually impaired get the privilege of sporting. Personally, I see glasses as more of a ball and chain than a privilege, but I guess imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

I think it's silly, if contacts weren't such a hassle I'd probably wear them, but I don't care that much either.

Same here. Luckily for me, my vision is okay enough that I don't have to wear my glasses all the time.

I have friends who own "fashion glasses" and I just shake my head.

I don't get it at all. I put off getting glasses until I really couldn't see where I was going. Now that I have them I don't mind them, but I can't imagine getting them for fun.

I've worn glasses for all but 8 years of my 63 years but I wonder lately if I will be lucky enough to keep what little vision I have left. I just can't imagine anyone wanting to pretend they have poor eyesight.
