Jason's eyesight also gives us cute kissncry moments. Like getting his score after the short program at Skate America.
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.
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.
ETA, Angela Wang:
Meryl also wears glasses sometimes, AFAIR.
Charlie also wears glasses.
I have seen photos of Ashley Wagner wearing glasses.
Brooklee Han, can't see a thing without glasses! Always squinting in the K & C.
