I was told that you cannot wear your eye glases to any events?? Is this true? Cuz i cannot wear contacts due to a medical condition.

No, it's not true, you can wear your glasses. Some people don't, but it's up to you.

I am very glad to hear glasses are OK. I wore contact lenses in the past but can no longer tolerate them for long periods. I have glasses that look "old fashioned" that I believe are complementary to the costumes versus a modern day look.

Face characters should match their in-Universe appearance.

Aren't there exclusions if it is medically necessary?

You can do what I always do when I run out of contacts:
Just take your glasses off for pictures and tuck them in your tunic Mr. Green

Me as well.

For any unfamiliar being newer, both Legions used to require no glasses across the board, in image frames and approvals.

In that time both LMO teams have, with evidence from newer characters, noted that glasses do occur from time to time in Star Wars (more often that Wilford Brimley), and they are now allowed for troopers, staff, non-face characters.

Edit: Medical exception for face characters are ok, but it’s preferred if you can wear contacts or do without specifically for approval photos.
