New Passport Rules Take Affect November 1 – No Glasses Allowed
If you wear eyeglasses you'll need to take them off for your passport photo starting November 1. In an effort to reduce the large number of problems associated with identification concerns, the U.S. Department of State is changing regulations for the photos - requiring applicants to remove their corrective frames.
If you already have a passport in which you're pictured with eyeglasses - don't worry. The government isn't requiring you to obtain a new one; you'll lose the eyeglasses when it's time to renew and get a new passport.
