    Jason's eyesight also gives us cute kissncry moments. Like getting his score after the short program at Skate America.

    since I just remembered where I read that:

    Q: Right now you’re wearing glasses. Do you use contacts to skate or you just skate without them?

    A: I can’t skate without contacts, but it’s uncomfortable. I have myopia and without glasses or contacts I just see enough for not crashing. I don’t know where I’m in the rink. And despite sometime contacts hurt me, it has never happened during competition.

    Alex Shibutani wears eyeglasses.

    And Alex has worn them since a young age.

    I seem to recall that Maia and he both tweeted other pics at the time he was selecting his most recent (oh-so-cool ) pair of frames, although I don't have links to those tweets at my fingertips.

    Just for grins: I love this old "Who wore it best?" compilation (eyeglass edition) of the Shibs and Davis/White.

    Jeffrey Buttle wears glasses ... although I do not know whether he did during his years as a competitor.

    Jeremy Abbott:

    Regarding those already mentioned in the thread:
    - Around the time of Vancouver, Charlie White had gold-rimmed frames, IIRC.
    - Hardly a rare sighting (sorry, no pun intended), but here is Jason Brown with his glasses.

    For more laughs: super-silly spectacles on Team USA skaters.

    Meryl also wears glasses sometimes, AFAIR.

    Not related to glasses but what a stunning picture of Maia and Kristy never seems to age.

    Not sure if it's part of her costume or what....but here's Arakawa Shizuka in glasses!

    I'm amazed that they stay on when she does that...

    Brooklee Han, can't see a thing without glasses! Always squinting in the K & C.

    I'm amazed by that, too! Off topic, the video of Shizuka was very nice, thanks for sharing. I saw her at Skate America 2003? and saw her interact with fans. She seemed so smiley, genuine and gracious.

    The soul takes flight to a world that is invisible, but there arriving she is assured of bliss and forever dwells in paradise.
