    I have a lens less pair for photos – otherwise my anti-glare finish makes me look like an alien on camera.

    Being nearly blind, and yes, a geek, I have a gazillion pairs of geeky glasses. To proclaim my authenticity (I haven’t made a fashion statement in years), I can’t have those thin, slim lens glasses due to my vision, as I need huge Kent frames that will allow me to get at least some degree of peripheral vision. I always keep an extra pair on me… and one in my car, my lab, and every room of the house because if I can’t find my glasses, I can only find them by putting on a spare pair. As you can guess, they all different colors so I know which one goes where, and they’re all equally geeky.

    I have lots of geeky glasses, they’re all “blanks” meaning not prescription glasses. I use them as nerd fashion accessories. I get lots of compliments. Sometimes I just buy oversized novelty sunglasses and take out the lenses, that’s a cheap way to get girl geeky eyeglasses or at least the frames.

      Interesting idea. I require glasses to see but mine are not the “cool” geek glasses. If I upgrade now to the hipster kind now I will be a Johnny-come-lately.

      I will have to wait until my old man styled specs come in to fashion.
