* ''Anime/Goku Midnight Eye' stars private investigator Goku Furinji whose sacrificed left eye is replaced by a mysterious benefactor with an electronic one that obeys his mental commands providing among other things x-ray vision, night vision, targeting, thermal vision, GPS, visual chemical analysis and protection from hypnosis but can also access and command virtually anything on the planet or in orbit controlled by computer. Which leaves his cyberpunk noir future in his hands. And of the two toys he was given that one wasn't even the magical one.

** The Illusive Man's eyes are notable for being obviously artificial. The tie-in comic, ''Mass Effect: Evolution'', reveals where he got them: [[spoiler:a Reaper artifact on Shanxi]]. Notably, only ''one'' character ever mentions the Illusive Man's unusual eyes: Joker, in an off-hand remark about TIM's "freaky eyes" in ''VideoGame/MassEffect3''.
** The protagonist, Commander Shepard, is also mentioned as having implants to aid with targeting and so forth (along with various other body modifications). KickTheDog enough and they glitch out and become a case of RedEyesTakeWarning.

* Inaho from ''Anime/AldnoahZero'' has one in season two after his is [[spoiler:shot out by Slaine at the end of season one]]. It looks almost identical to his real one, but it's quickly revealed that it goes far beyond just a regular eye.

* Quite a bit of the eye customization options in ''VideGame/XenobladeChroniclesX'' can give your PlayerCharacter this look. [[spoiler: This could be seen as foreshadowing for the true nature of your character, as well as the rest of humanity in NLA.]]

* ''Comicbook/JudgeDredd'' has Bionic Eyes, given to him during the "City of the Damned" story arc, after his real ones were ripped out of their sockets by a zombie version of himself from the future. Dredd notes that the new eyes give him 20:20 '''night''' vision, enhanced clarity over distance, and a 50% reduction in blinking time. He praises the efficiency of his new eyes after he gets them, and his one regret is that he never got them sooner. Truth be told though, you'll probably be hard-pressed to ever find another Dredd story where any of these improved eye functions become useful to him in a situation. However, in the ''ComicBook/TwoThousandAD'' story ''The Dead Man'', [[spoiler: one of the earliest tip-offs to the reader revealing that the titular disfigured character is actually Dredd is the fact that his eyes "don't look natural".]] It also crops up in another story, where a group of perps use an EMP device. Unsurprisingly, Dredd is BlindWithoutEm.

* ComicBook/XMen members ComicBook/{{Psylocke}} had losts her original eyes to the Slaymaster and had them replaced with bionic ones by Sprial that instantly adjusted to light and broadcasted everything to Mojoworld. She lost them (and has them replaced with normal eyes) and Kwannon gained them when [[FreakyFriday they had their body swap]].

* Used rather bizarrely to avoid an ArtifactTitle for ''VideoGame/GoldeneyeRogueAgent''.
* In ''VideoGame/MegaManXCommandMission'', while X is a robot, and thus obviously has electronic eyes, a close-up on his eye shows up all kinds of little circuitry doodads visible on the iris.

** In ''VideoGame/MegaMan8'', Robot Master eyes are shown to work similar to LCD screens, although due to the vastly inferior animation it appears more as the eyes being a blank white until the rest fades in. The [[ComicBook/MegaMan comics]] do this too, with inactive robots having blank eyes, and the eyes of forcibly shut down robots tending to glitch and display weirdly before going blank.

* On some ''SpaceStation13'' codebases you can have cybernetic eyes, but they dont do anything.

* Garrett, from ''VideoGame/{{Thief}}'', has a prominent {{Steampunk}} [[http://thief.wikia.com/wiki/Mechanical_Eye prosthetic eye]] from the second game onwards. It allows him to zoom in, as well as see through a special remote camera that can be tossed around corners. In one cutscene, it is shown that the eye apparently requires regular removal and maintenance, at least refilling with some fluid.

* In ''{{Starcraft}}'', ghosts can get an upgrade called "Ocular Implants," increasing their sight radius. It is actually quite useful as it allows the ghost to call in nuke strikes from outside the blast radius.
* An NPC in KnightsOfTheOldRepublic, Gadon Thek, apparently has a pair of these, although they don't look too different from normal eyes. You can even ask him about his "freaky eyes".
* Peacock, from VideoGame/{{Skullgirls}}, possesses an unusual version of these. Her eyes (on her face) are cartoony-looking BlackBeadEyes, but in reality just empty sockets. Instead, she has three large artificial eyes attached to each of her [[ArtificialLimbs mechanical arms]]. She takes this further with the ability to summon an indefinite amount of these eyes; they are all free-floating and she can see out of every single one, giving her a massive field of vision. On top of that, they can all [[BeamSpam shoot lasers]].

** The black-eyes thing has now been averted. Turned out his eyes always had the ability to change their appearance to perfectly mimic natural eyes, the surgeon who installed them just forgot to turn on that functionality. As a bonus, he can now actively change their appearance just by thinking about it.
