Seeing things is hard! Something that makes it easier is wearing glasses. Another thing that makes it easier is contact lenses, but putting tiny pieces of malleable plastic in your eyes isn’t always the most comfortable thing to do.

You don’t see women wearing glasses at formal events too often, but tonight Kate Winslet, Patricia Arquette and Cheryl Boone Isaacs wore frames while presenting. Is the tyranny of red-carpet contact lenses finally over? And if so, can Spanx be next?
