This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
I like people with glasses. 3 out of 5 of my Sims wear glasses.

This is a mixture of in-game Nerdy Glasses and the Half Rim Glasses. I cut the bottom part of the Nerdy glasses' rim, tweaked the curve a little to make them a bit feminine, and finally attached the Half Rim's lenses on them.
The result: a pair of half-nerdy glasses.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

The glasses are perfect, but the CAS thumbnail is failing to show up correctly (I just get a face). I've downloaded both files and both are extracted into the packages folder, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

So by downloading I admit I'm at least ½ nerdy? These will make the Mr. Me-in-Sims3 Sim even more like me now. Thanks.

Ha-ha, if there was a metal connector between the lens, these would be the frames I wear! These are great. I, too have an abundance of bespectacled citizens running about my Sims world, so looking for new frames is always a priority. Thank you for adding to my collection.

I was wondering if you can make a similar pair where the frame is on the bottom and the rimless part is on the top? I've been looking for something like that for a while.

I'm not sure of this error.
Maybe you can try to delete the cache files first before loading the Sims 3.

LOL. I didn't realize it until you mentioned it.
But then I made a side-by-side comparison of them:

Ya.. pretty close!

And here's a manipulated picture of JT wearing a pair of half-nerdy glasses:
