The science says no.

Researchers wrote: Cross-sectional analysis of pre-enrollment eyeglasses use showed no association with nonmelanoma skin cancers during the 5 years before enrollment


researchers wrote:A case-control study (n = 50) of medial canthal BCC*s and use of eyeglasses found a slight, but significant, decrease in risk of medial canthal BCC*s in myopic users


*Basal Cell Carcinomas

If anything, eyeglasses offer a tiny bit of protection.

Wearing eye glasses definitely DOES cause cancer. It takes roughly 100 years from when you begin to wear those carcinogenic spectacles. My evidence is that there are very few people who survive more than 100 years after they begin to wear glasses.

so.........(yes Gawd!)............ what you are saying is that the simplest of surveys will show that psychiatrists who wear glasses have the highest rate of cancer ever?..... OR... do those bastards pass it along to their patients whether or not the patients wear glasses.... or just to those that wear glasses .... or wut?

After considerable investigation, I've come to the realisation that I was wrong. It was 6 to 12 glasses of water, not glasses of eyes.

In simple words. there is no statistic to suggest this. You need to learn to do basic research before asking anymore ridiculous questions.

Not all the eyeglasses. Some eyeglasses may contain chemicals which can lead to cancer.

I suggest that until someone produces some evidence, for there being carcinogenic materials in prescription glasses, we can assume that the manufacturers have complied with US consumer law.

Some material that is in prescription glasses and not a blue million other things we touch, wear and wank with.

Only if you sleep on your back with your mouth open. :-P

JK, but hey, one might think that, since UV-B induces skin cancer by causing mutation in DNA and suppressing certain activities of the immune system.

Nowadays people are more aware and stay out of the sun, or use sun blocks, and you might say you do that, but the danger of developing those rather common BCCs is thought to actually increase with childhood sun exposure.

But it isn't only the sun. As I said earlier, it seems welders and metal workers also experience a higher risk.

No one actually knows, but it's the most plausible cause. It's a "best guess" that's backed by research.

The sun factor is interesting.
Certainly, too much ultra violet can cause skin cancer. But too little can cause vitamin D deficiency. I live in the country with the worst ultra violet in the world, and yet we still get cases of vitamin D deficiency. It is debatable whether skin cancer or vitamin D deficiency is the worse public health issue.
