My husband tells me that all the halachois only refer to clothes but shoes are not included
Please ask your husband, if spectacles are also excluded from this Halocho?
Spectacles are probably not a levush, i think some people do not even wear them on shabbos.January 23, 2013 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #1134516snowbunny3318Member

The briskers do not wear glasses or spectacles or “brillen” on shabbosJanuary 21, 2014 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm #1134518RR44Participant
At least last year there were some talmidei chachomim aroundJanuary 23, 2014 12:04 pm at 12:04 pm #1134519DASH2Member
RR, i think it machloikes between R’ pinchos Roberts shlit”a and the sadigurer Rebbe, as Rabbi robert’s children and grandchildren do not wear seperate shoes on shabbos, and the sadigurer rebbe’s children do.
As a chossid of Rabbi roberts that you obviously are, you shouldn’t.January 23, 2014 12:06 pm at 12:06 pm #1134520DASH2Member

Just notice this

How is someone supposed to Daven or read if they dont wear glasses and they need them unless they wear ContactsFebruary 1, 2016 12:51 pm at 12:51 pm #1134525ivoryMember
I would think that in today’s days , when people generally have way more than one pair of shoes, one pair should be a nicer pair for Shabbos. How do brisker see on Shabbos if they’re not wearing glasses?February 1, 2016 1:42 pm at 1:42 pm #1134526
Briskers have 20/20 vision.February 1, 2016 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm #1134527NechomahParticipant
Briskers generally do not carry on Shabbos and treat glasses as carrying, so they don’t do it. My husband feels that he does not need glasses to see where he is going, only for reading. Whether or not this is true is a matter of intense debate, but in any case, he leaves a pair of reading glasses in shul and has another pair at home, leaving each pair in its place.February 1, 2016 2:45 pm at 2:45 pm #1134528
Nechomah: What do Briskers whose vision is poor enough that they require opticals simply to see more than a few feet in front of them do? (Is your family Brisk?)February 1, 2016 3:39 pm at 3:39 pm #1134529Sam2Participant
Joseph: Many members of my family have adopted Brisk. They leave a pair of glasses at home and a pair in Shul and they struggle through in the middle. They will rely on the Eruv for glasses if (and only if) their poor vision actually won’t allow them to get to Shul otherwise.
All of this is only if they don’t wear their glasses full time. I have a few relatives who wear the same glasses for everything they do (both distance and reading) and therefore they can wear them on Shabbos.
