If we've learned anything in the last few days, it’s that Kelly Ripa might be hoping to make her latest look permanent. For the third time this week, Ripa decided to swap her contacts for a pair of actual glasses.

ICYMI: Earlier this month, the 50-year-old TV personality debuted a pair of black specs on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan. Since then, she’s proceeded to rock the same pair on multiple occasions.

First, we saw the All My Children actress sporting her eyewear with a Selena Zebra-Strip Brown wrap midi dress from ba&sh. In a video shared on the official Live account, Ripa could be heard joking about her glasses, stating she’s been happier not wearing her glasses so she doesn’t have to see what’s been going on.

“Who knew you were so gorgeous? I did not know,” she quipped while speaking to a member of her staff. “I’ve been happy not wearing them [her glasses]. It’s happier just not to see what's happening to me personally.”

The accessories made another appearance on the morning show on Monday. This time, the TV personality looked sophisticated in a sheer grey, midi-dress and her favorite pair of green suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi.

Not surprisingly, Ripa continued to give her eyes a rest and wore the same glasses on Tuesday, during her interview with actor Ryan Phillippe.

And (you guessed it), we saw the frames once again on this morning’s episode of the program, when she paired them with a black midi dress and silver pumps.

So, while we’re not exactly sure when (or if) Ripa will ever go back to her contacts, we’re not in any rush for her to go back to her old look. Plus, we’re sure her eyes are thanking her.
