I got a little inspired after Phaenoh started on her great default replacement glasses set (click there for more cool eyeglasses for your sims - no mesh required!)...

Got me to thinking how few really decent eyeglasses there are for sims... there's a lot of funky high-fashion sunglasses out there and stuff, but even with Phae's set, there's really not THAT many true glasses for your sims with less than perfect vision.

So, I made these - simple, basic thin-framed oval glasses, the sort you'd see on real people (and quite a bit less chunky and large than Maxis glasses, which have always seemed huge to me). As a result these may not fit every sim perfectly - sims with nose bridges that stick out really far or who have very wide cheeks will probably get some clipping - these glasses don't distort with the sim's face - but they should work on a pretty wide range nonetheless. No nose rests as sim nose width is variable but width of that part cannot be changed dynamically to match.

I might end up making a few more types - been plinking around online at different styles, seeing what would be the most useful and generic for a wide range of peoples' self-sims and stuff. We shall see.

These glasses work for both genders and for all ages except toddler. I have done them in four colours: charcoal/black, silver, gold, and black frames with sunglass lenses. Files are labelled so you can delete any colours you don't want.

These do not have special bin numbers to allow for accessory multi-wearability: all OTHER custom accessories than glasses should be re-bin-numbered to be worn with glasses and other accessories, but it's not necessary for glasses (you wouldn't wear two pairs of glasses at once), hence why I didn't do so.
