    I have to use glasses for distance, and I don't see any serious distortions in my face when I look in the mirror.  When I take the glasses off I see that the indentation of my eyes are exaggerated with the glasses on, but it's not immediately evident just looking at me with them on.

    I suspect the script is not very strong, and I'd question if he really needs them to give a speech or interview.  We'll see if he has to take them off to read anything close, I guess.

      he wouldn't need glasses for an interview or speech. You need to know how to react to other people's body language and facial reactions and adjust what you're saying accordingly. He doesn't care enough about other people to even bother with that.

        "Flying blind" would make me totally insecure in public. But then again, I have been wearing glasses since first grade when my teacher called my mother and told her my cross-eyed squint looked "frightening."
