* According to Creator/SeanAstin and Billy Boyd in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u05hcDVKSIk this]] behind the scenes video from ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', Creator/ElijahWood can't actually see without corrective lenses in spite of having those [[WhatBeautifulEyes huge, beautiful blue eyes]]. They both point out the {{Irony}} of this.

* Cody from ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' can't see anything without his glasses. In the episode, "The Burger!", one of the wishes he makes on the magic cheeseburger he, Junior, and Joseph find behind the refrigerator is to see without glasses, the result of which gives him two big, bulgy eyes.

Added DiffLines:

* Chester Bennington of LinkinPark. Though this trope, Chester was told not to wear them onstage due to the band's 'edgy' image early on, which meant he'd play shows practically blind. He still often wore them backstage. From the "Minutes To Midnight" period, when the band's music became more alt-rock and experimental, Chester has often worn them publically


Added DiffLines:

* Wrestling/ReyMysterio 's use of colored contacts came about because of having poor eyesight, but glasses being unsuitable for wrestling with (especially when you're an agile masked luchador). In backstage photos, he can usually be seen wearing glasses.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/AxisPowersHetalia'': In a series where the majority of glasses-wearing characters [[PurelyAestheticGlasses don't need them]] for vision problems, [[HollywoodNerd Estonia]] is a notable exception, as character notes mention his poor eyesight without them. As he's a HollywoodNerd with a penchant for computers, it could overlap with NerdGlasses. They also help conceal his expressions, as he's said to always have a lot on his mind.

* ''TheLawOfPurple'': Dex's eyesight is highly dependent on his glasses, as he is ''incredibly'' nearsighted without them. Possible aversion with another character, who also wears glasses but doesn't appear to be quite as dependent on them.

* Batly from ''Series/EureekasCastle'' is a bat who wears glasses and crashes into things a lot while flying, a play on the saying, "[[StealthPun Blind as a bat]]". He's even clumsier than usual when he loses his glasses.
