Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

     The following  information is furnished pursuant to Item 7.01,  "Regulation
FD Disclosure."

     On November 29, 2004, Corning  Incorporated decided extend the time for its
voluntary odd-lot program for eligible small shareholders, allowing shareholders
owning fewer than 100 shares of Corning Common Stock to either sell all of their
shares or to  purchase  additional  shares to  increase  their  holdings  to 100
shares. The program will continue to be in effect from November 30, 2004 through
December  29,  2004  ("Program  Extension  Period")  unless  extended or earlier

     The actual price per share eligible  shareholders  will receive or pay will
be a  market-based  price  per  share  that  will be  uniformly  applied  to all
shareholders  participating  during the Program Extension Period,  and cannot be
determined in advance.  Informational letters about the Program Extension Period
will be sent  to  eligible  shareholders  on or  about  November  30,  2004  and
questions  should be directed to Georgeson  Shareholder  Communications  Inc. at
1-888-288-7059.  Corning  is  making no  recommendation  to  shareholders  as to
whether to act upon this voluntary program.


Pursuant  to the  requirements  of the  Securities  Exchange  Act of  1934,  the
Registrant  has duly  caused  this  report  to be  signed  on its  behalf by the
undersigned thereunto duly authorized.
