Drew Carey looks like a whole new man at 59: Do you still recognize him without glasses?
Drew, is that you?!
Drew Carey began his weight-loss journey in 2010, so it's no surprise that he's slimmed down in recent years. But that's not why he's almost unrecognizable today! The beloved comedian has taken to wearing -- are you ready?! -- contact lenses.
If you don't realize the major implications of this change, here's a refresher. For just about his whole career -- from "The Drew Carey Show" through present-day "The Price Is Right" -- Drew Carey has worn thick-framed glasses.
But as it turns out, the glasses are just part of Drew's TV persona!
While he occasionally wears them during his day-to-day life, the 59-year-old star's Instagram confirms that he usually opts for contact lenses instead. And we have to say, without the signature frames, he just looks like your everyday guy. (Although quite handsome -- the facial hair looks good on him!) Take a look at this selfie from last year:
More recent shots from this year show the star at sporting events, museums -- and a surprising number of EDC raves! We can probably assume that without his trademark specs, few people recognize him out in public, allowing him to comfortably balance fame with a normal life.
Take a look and see if you'd still know Drew's face right away without his frames:
