Summary Although Abraham Lincoln's signature accessory was his top hat, he also wore eyeglasses. The American public was fascinated by his eyewear, and the topic found its way into the news numerous times. The Lincoln Financial Foundation put together this collection of documents regarding Abraham Lincoln's eyesight. Lincoln owned at least two pairs of glasses, both of which are preserved today. He wore them publicly numerous times, notably before giving the Gettysburg Address. He cited his old age as the reason for their necessity.
