Findings of a new genetic research suggest that people who wear glasses are indeed more intelligent.

The researchers analysed data from more than 300,000 people who'd taken a variety of problem solving tests created to test their cognitive skills.

They also found that people who are more intelligent tend to be almost 30 percent more likely to have genes that require them to use reading glasses compared with individuals who were considered to be less smart.

The findings were part of a much broader study about inherited genes affecting general cognitive function (or, colloquially, "intelligence"). They were then given a general cognitive ability score and researchers examined their DNA.

It's a trend that's often seen on the silver screen too, with brainiac characters in movies or TV shows often dressed up with a pair of glasses to let the audience know they mean serious business. The study also found that those with higher cognitive function tended to live longer, have a decreased risk of specific types of cancer, and even had healthier hearts.

Scientists said that the results could help understanding of the decline in cognitive function that happens with illness and age.
