THREE quarters of people who have affairs wear glasses, a Sun on Sunday poll has found.
The percentage of spectacle wearers who stray was found to be higher than the percentage of glasses wearers among the general population.

It may be because a third of those questioned thought glasses were sexy, a fifth say they made wearers better looking and nine in ten said it made them more approachable.
The old idea of glasses for squares has also been quashed — just nine per cent said they were nerdy and three per cent said they made wearers look boring.
However, despite the increased likelihood of straying, three quarters think glasses also make people appear more trustworthy.
Overall, our survey found male spectacle wearers marginally more likely to stray than female.
The poll was carried out by dating website for married couples IllicitEncounters.com.
Spokeswoman Jessica Leoni said: “How many erotic fantasies begin with a bespectacled secretary? A large percentage of people obviously feel glasses make someone look sexy.

“I’m sure I speak for the entire female population here when I name drop Brad Pitt and David Beckham. Some of the sexiest men alive wear glasses.”
People in Bradford were the most likely specs-wearers to cheat, with 40 per cent of them owning up to an affair. They were followed by those in Nottingham, Sheffield, Coventry, London, Bristol and Birmingham.
The most trustworthy were in Leicester with a rate of 23 per cent.
