* 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.

** Early into the anime's run was a character-of-the-day named Seymour., who gets tripped by Meowth, loses his glasses, and is essentially rendered incapacitated until he finds them.
** From the X/Y season, there's Ash's companion Clemont, who ends up walking into and frantically apologizing to a giant rock after a Pancham swipes his glasses.

* 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.

* ''Film/{{Geek Charming}}'': It is revealed halfway throughout the film that Dylan secretly wears contact lenses. However, she accidentally loses one of her contacts and is forced to wear her glasses to school. She tries to not wear them resulting in this trope.

* Rosalind Hawkins from ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters The Fire Rose]]'' has to wear glasses. She isn't shown as ever losing them. However, she is required to take them off for a ritual to Summon (or rather cajole) a {{Unicorn}} (an Elemental of Spirit), and is annoyed that she can't see much of anything. (The Unicorn looks like a white, blurry shape when it appears.)

*Even though a lot of characters wear glasses in ''Webcomic/{{Frivolesque}}'', Saki is the one constantly running with this trope everytime she has her glasses taken away from her. She's usually looking away from the people talking to her, wandering in random directions, and being unable to identify the people she's standing right next to.
