My Dad had the laser treatment a good few years ago, and I still can't get used to him without the glasses.
Since we are talking about glasses, here is a photo that a certain somebody posted to her vKontakte profile yesterday
To be honest, I don't know if these glasses are necessary or not. I've seen her wearing a different pair of glasses before (which, incidentally were far too big for her face), but in the vast majority of photos I've seen of her, she doesn't.
Whilst people wearing glasses as a fashion statement doesn't annoy me, what does annoy me is wearing glasses that don't suit you. Those glasses that Caro was wearing at the Euros banquet look awful on her. Similarly, that black pair of Liza's that I referred to in the previous paragraph, and the pair that Maxim Kovtun was wearing in that photo with Julia that sisinka posted above.
Getting back to the subject. Not sure what part of the post-Championships events these were from (the press conference, maybe?), but here are some photos that Inside Skating posted to their Facebook page:
Sergei Voronov and Javier Fernandez

Abosultely LOVE Sergei's jumper!!!!
(That's my best guess at how to spell it! )
Many skaters wear glasses and many of those don't want to share their secret of having glasses. On the ice they take contact lenses and many of them take contact lenses off the ice as well.
I saw Tukhtamysheva with another glasses
Maxim Kovtun wears glasses, he needs them.
But he has better-looking glasses also.
Javier Fernandez has a nice glasses which are suitable for him (in my opinion).
Anyway, I hope you don't mind but I'm going to take this conversation into a different thread, as I want to continue talking about skaters and glasses, but it starting to get a bit too far off topic for this particular thread.
Do they wear contacts for competitions? How do they keep the lens from shifting around?
