* Hyperspectral Goggles from ''TabletopGame/{{GURPS}}: Ultra-Tech'' show you the entire electromagnetic spectrum and have a zoom function. ''High-Tech'' The same supplement may allow other technology to be built into goggles or their frames.
** Related to that, in the GURPS SF setting ''TabletopGame/TranshumanSpace'', many people wear glasses or goggles with miniature computers built into the frames, and heads-up displays in the lenses. (Indeed, given that the local medical technology must be well up to fixing most forms of poor vision, this may be the ''main'' reason that anyone wears glasses in the setting's year 2100.) It's also entirely possible for those computers to run low-end artificial intelligences. Hence, some [=PCs=] can and do treat their glasses or goggles as ''NPC Allies.''
** Also, ''GURPS High-Tech''
has (realistic) anti-laser goggles goggles, to protect against weapons meant intended to blind the target.

* WhateleyUniverse example: Phase has a pair of CoolShades which do nothing but handle the 'Jericho' problem. Jericho is a 'blind' inventor who deliberately wears clothing combinations so horrible that people tend to throw up in his vicinity. Phase's shades convert all colors to black, white, and gray, so she can talk to Jericho without heaving.
