Also those who wore glasses were viewed as being geeky by compared to those who did not.

Says Dr Glenn Wilson, who analyzed the research, "This study is interesting as it highlights the snap judgments we make as a society about people."

Some people like to wear glasses as it makes them look intellectual, but this study shows that the effect may be due to perception of increased age.
