As long as they are not expensive designer glasses - cannot have any emblems on them - you will be able to keep yours. If the DOC seems them designer brand, you will be issued a pair of state approved glasses. As you can imagine, the state issued glasses are not nice.

I took in an unbranded plastic framed "free" pair I had from the opticians when I bought my designer glasses. Not exactly fashionable but hard wearing, did the job as I'm very short sighted and better than the prison issue type
