Celebrities that Look Better with Glasses
For some celebrities, glasses make up part of their image and identity. Superheroes Superman and Wonder Woman used glasses as part of their disguises, allowing them to hide their true identities and go out in public as alter egos Clark Kent and Diana Prince. While glasses may have made Clark Kent look like a clumsy news reporter, many celebrities today wear glasses to accentuate their looks. Some celebrities look even better with glasses, adding a sophisticated and sexier dimension to their personality. Here is a look at celebrities that don't need LASIK surgery, because they look better with glasses.
