General Hospital star Steve Burton, AKA Jason Morgan, is changing up his look. He’s decided to make a change. His new look is similar to Superman’s transformation back to Clark Kent. After decades of wearing contacts, Steve Burton is now sporting new glasses. So, are his days of wearing contact lenses over for good for this ABC daytime star?
General Hospital: Jason Morgan Portrayer Steve Burton Ditches Lenses
GH fan-favorite actor Steve Burton is now ready to have more options when it comes to his eyewear. For most of his life, the handsome blue-eyed soap star wore contact lenses. But now he says, “wearing contacts gets old”. Certainly, anyone whose worn contacts knows and understands Steve’s frustrations. After all, it’s a lot of extra time and effort to put them in daily and keep them clean. Not to mention, you can get a serious eye infection if you’re not careful.
This isn’t the first change to his looks made by Steve Burton since the production of General Hospital shut down in March. Just a few weeks before returning to work, Steve got a dramatic new hairdo. His new look drew mixed reactions from his fans. Quarantine life got the better of him. So it was a case of wild hair for a wild time. However, by the time he returned to set, his drastic cut was pretty much grown out.
Will Glasses Be Part Of a New Jason on GH?
General Hospital celeb Steve Burton’s new look just might cross over to his on-screen character. Jason Morgan is recovering from a head injury after crashing his motorcycle. For now, there seems to be no brain damage or memory loss. However, as time progresses that could easily change for Jason.
General Hospital fans recall it was after another accident that Jason Quartermaine morphed into Jason Morgan. He became Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) right-hand man and distanced himself from all things Quartermaine. So, will we see Stone Cold in glasses? That’s still unknown. However many feel glasses make a person look smarter, more professional, and from a higher social class. With the recent upheaval at ELQ, it might be time for Jason to embrace his Quartermaine roots and work with his family to regain control from Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart).

Kin Shriner (Scott Baldwin) warned him to be careful. However, it was Maurice Benard’s comment that got Steve’s attention. Maurice said, “kind a looks like an eagle with glasses”. However, Steve took that as a compliment and replied with, “I love eagles”. Overall, Steve Burton’s transformation from contacts to glasses is a winner.
