# Is there a latex symbol for glasses?

I am looking for a latex symbol for glasses (eye glasses...)? I can find symbols as fanciful as Marge Simpson, but no glasses. Do you know of any?

• That is Unicode U+1F453 (👓) so with a suitable font and xelatex or lualatex it is easy to use that character. Jun 16, 2015 at 9:00

\documentclass[border=4pt]{standalone}
\usepackage{tikz}

\definecolor{Skin}{RGB}{221,188,135}
\newcommand\Glasses{%
\begin{tikzpicture}
\fill
(0,-4) --
(-1.9,-4) to[out=210,in=40]
(-3,-6) --
(3,-6) to[out=130,in=-30]
(1.9,-4) --
(0,-4)
;
\fill
(0.55,0) arc (0:180:0.55cm and 10pt) --
++(0,-10pt) arc (180:0:0.55cm and 10pt) -- cycle;
\draw[line width=1pt,fill=Skin]
(-0.55,-10pt) arc (180:0:0.55cm and 10pt)
to[out=-70,in=70]
(1.5,-4)
to[out=-110,in=-70]
(-1.5,-4)
to[in=-110,out=110]
(-0.55,-10pt)

\end{tikzpicture}%
