This just in: Tina Fey is actually a 21-year-old coed.

Well, not quite, but according to a new poll, the comedienne's signature eyeglasses could be tacking a few years onto her age, the Daily Mail reports.

A London Vision Clinic survey of 4,000 adults found that specs make people look 3.3 years older, according to the paper.

It gets worse, Four Eyes: People aged 45 or over were reportedly assumed to be 5 years older, while respondents also claimed those who wore glasses seemed "geeky" and "good at computers."

Frames-wearing people were also reportedly a fifth less likely to be seen as confident and were more likely to be viewed as physically weak.

The study asked participants to analyze photos of 10 different people (seen both with and without glasses) and guess their ages, the Daily Mail reports.

"This study is interesting as it highlights the snap judgments we make as a society about people when we meet them for the first time," psychologist Dr. Glenn Wilson told the paper.

"In addition to glasses making you look older, it seems we still make the unconscious assertion that people who wear glasses are weaker and less confident.

"This association seems to hark back to the school playground, with a quarter of those surveyed admitting they were teased as a child for wearing glasses."

Sheesh. Contacts it is, then.
