* Creator/KatyManning (Jo Grant in ''Series/DoctorWho'') wore thick glasses when off camera. On camera, she was prone to crashing into the scenery or other actors. You know how the Doctor always takes his companion by the hand and runs with her? It started with Jo Grant, because Jon Pertwee needed to guide his essentially blind co-star.

At one point, [[MeanCharacterNiceActor Roger Delgado]] does the same, which ends up looking like a PetTheDog moment for the Master.

%%* * Meg in ''Literature/AWrinkleInTime''.''Literature/AWrinkleInTime'' is mentioned as having very poor eyesight.
* Ingvar in ''Literature/{{Brotherband}}'' is a GentleGiant and by far the strongest of his RagtagBunchOfMisfits, but his nearsightedness makes him a liability in battle. [[spoiler: Then Hal makes him a primitive pair of spectacles, and he [[TookALevelInBadass takes quite the level in badass]].]]

* ''Manga/DrStone'': Suika has terrible vision in the equivalent of the Stone Age, so glasses aren't exactly an option. Instead she uses a helmet with peepholes to help get around this, though she does't understand why it works. Then Senku converts said helmet into glasses.

* 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.
