    It kind of depends on the lenses. If you're farsighted, more magnification is required in the lenses making your eyes appear bigger. If you're nearsighted, the less magnification is required making them appear smaller. The magnification can increase or decrease depending on how bad your eyes are. Plus, how often do other people really see you without your glasses on, right? I'm pretty sure I confidently say that most people in my life have never seen me without them so it would probably be weird for them if they did.

    When near sighted people put on glasses, their eyes look smaller thru the lenses. Just the opposite for far sighted people. Their lenses magnify their eyes.
