* Samantha Samuels on ''CoryInTheHouse'' removes her glasses in one episode. When asked if she can see without them she responds that she can without a problem, only for us to show the scene in her perspective. Her eyesight is pretty bad.

* ''Neverland'': In the first part of their pilot episode, the character Brian loses his glasses in the midst of an epic battle -- which he must bring an abrupt end to in order to find them... since they're only LARPing, the combat is fake, and the danger presented by losing his glasses circumvents the thrill of combat.

* William of Baskerville, in ''Literature/TheNameOfTheRose'', has an interesting version: his distance vision is just fine, but he cannot ''read'' without his "lenticules." Since the plot entails a series of murders involving a library and its contents, he is seriously handicapped when they're broken halfway through the action.

* On ''WesternAnimation/DocMcStuffins'', the character Hallie the hippo makes this statement, as the titular Doc takes away her glasses supposedly to give her an eye exam, but actually to hide the fact that she's in a room that's decorated for a surprise birthday party (but isn't quite ready yet). We are, however, given a point-of-view shot of what Hallie sees and it's clear that things are just blurry, like someone with nearsightedness. She probably could have figured it out if Doc and the others hadn't continued to keep her distracted.

* UsefulNotes/HarryTruman had wanted to attend the MilitaryAcademy at [[YanksWithTanks West Point]] as a young man, but his eyesight was so bad they couldn't take him--he could hardly see a thing without his glasses. When UsefulNotes/WorldWarI started, he wanted to join the Missouri National Guard, but realized that he'd face the same problem--so he memorized the eye chart and ended up a captain in the artillery.
