You Probably Never Ever Noticed This On The Big Bang Theory Set

For those who wear glasses, you may not like what you’re about to read.

The Big Bang Theory’s star Leonard Hofstadter wears glasses, but there are no lenses!

The doctor on the show is your certified nerd/geek who wears black rimmed glasses in almost every scene you see him in..
According to Johnny Galecki, who plays Leonard, “We rehearsed the first episode for about a week and a half, and when we started to shoot, they said, ‘Well, you’re gonna take your glasses off, right?’ I said, ‘No, I want Leonard to wear glasses.’ They said, ‘Oh, we just thought you were wearing them as Johnny for rehearsal all week.”

Well I guess the glasses thing helped his character because it would be very hard to imagine him without them now.
For those wondering why he doesn’t just wear prescription free lenses, he said when he looked up with his regular glasses, the lights caught the lenses and created a glare.

“I quickly popped out the lenses and that’s the movie magic behind that,” Galecki stated.
