* ''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.

Sometimes the eye is very visually distinct. Bizarre irises or unusual pupils mark the individual. Working on the principle of the eyes being the window to the soul, these TechnicolorEyes can be a small but direct method of demonstrating the fact that an otherwise normal-looking individual is at least partially cybernetic. In the case of prosthetic eyes they also work as a scar signifier. Since the eyes are taken as so much more personal they can be a much smaller effect for greater emotional impact. And, of course, it can also show how [[CyberneticsEatsYourSoul evil]] a person is.

* In ''Series/BabylonFive'' G'Kar gets a replacement eye for the one he lost during his captivity on Centauri Prime. Unfortunately, the only iris color that was in stock was blue, which is completely mismatched with the deep red color of his remaining eye.
* The Silicates of ''Series/SpaceAboveAndBeyond'' have eyes that look like targeting reticules.

eye. The way this one works is a wireless connection between the prosthetic eye and an implant in the vision center of his brain, which the doctor points out when explaining it may get a little disorienting when he takes the eye out for regular cleaning. G'Kar actually thinks this is cool, and has fun leaving his eye in rooms as a hidden camera.

* ''WebComic/ManlyGuysDoingManlyThings'': Jet, the main character's brother, is a SuperSoldier from a nondescript spacefuture, and has a yellow eye with crosshairs instead of a pupil. It's eventually revealed that the military put it inside Jet to be used to take photos of strategic locations/targets. Jet most uses it to take photos of his raptors being cute.

* Cyber eyes are a pretty common implant in Creator/WilliamGibson's ''Literature/SprawlTrilogy'', both for correcting bad vision and for vanity, Simstim stars almost always have them.

* ''ComicVook/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.
* [[BigBad Haazen]] from ''ComicBook/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' had one mechanical eye that was visibly artificial and [[RedEyesTakeWarning glowed bright red]]. His other eye seemed to be simply an empty socket, leading one to wonder [[FridgeLogic why he didn't get it replaced, too]].
** Oh, it's [[TheDarkSide not]] [[EyesAlwaysShut empty]].
* Mr. Marsh of ''ComicBook/NoHero'' has computers in his head that's revealed by glowing eyes.
* Police captain Wiggins in ''ComicBook/{{Grendel}}: Devil's Legacy''. We never see how this works but the eye can be attuned to a person's physiology to function as a lie detector (much the same way as a real lie detector works but in this case, he's probably seeing somewhat like what Geordi Laforge might see through his visor). Quite useful in questioning suspects. Although, apparently he often prefers to rely on his intelligence and intuition rather than just his built in lie detector. He's probably aware that any good liar can beat a lie detector.
* ComicBook/XMen member ComicBook/{{Psylocke}} had lost 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]].
