The more interesting twin to GoggglesDoNothing, this trope is for eyewear that does something other than what their mundane design purpose is. Eyewear falling under this trope [[BlindWithoutEm may actually correct vision]], or it may not. Such eyewear may protect one from sparks or chemicals. Such eyewear may, as a side-effect [[ScaryShinyGlasses be intimidating]] or [[SinisterShades just plain frightening]], but it certainly will do something useful and unusual besides that.

*** They don't put the image "directly into the brain", (in the sense that the words conjure up, i.e. a brain implant) - they use a low-res matrix of stimulators on an area of skin - back, stomach and tongue have all been used in studies. It works much better than you'd think.

* In ''{{Tsukihime}}'', the protagonist's special glasses actually ''prevent'' him from seeing something supernatural: The black lines of death that lie across everything, and which can be used to destroy anything. If he were forced to look at that his whole life, he might have gone insane.
* An interesting case with ''ProfessorLaytonAndTheUnwoundFuture''. When ascending a tower to confront his evil future self, the Professor finds a strange pair of goggles that allow him to see a puzzle lock in the door. Wierd, but they still don't qualify...yet. As it turns out, the goggles are actually a [[spoiler:memory-scanning device that Future Layton used to obtain the Professor's memories in order to activate his time machine and save Claire]].
* The Cavefish gang in ''FullThrottle'' wear special goggles to shield their sensitive, cave-dwelling eyes from sunlight, making them effectively blind. To make navigation possible, however, the goggles also pick up yellow dots in the road, along with some distinct landmarks and large buildings. They can also reveal the entrance to the Cavefish hideout, and the player needs to steal a pair of such goggles to find it. [[spoiler:The dots are also an integral part of a puzzle involving the Cavefish, where Ben has to forcibly remove some of the dots to make the Cavefish lose track of the road and crash to their deaths.]]

* Played with in the first ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta}}'' game, Umbra Witches wear glasses and Lumen Sages wear monocles, and at first it seems that they do that so they can see angels and demons in Purgatorio ... however later in the game Cereza enchants her own glasses to give to Luka so he can see the angels, but says the glasses themselves aren't magical and she can still see the angels (or 'ghosts' as she calls them) just fine without them. Played straight in ''{{VideoGame/Bayonetta 2}}'' when Luka gets his hands on a pair of permanently enchanted specs from the FallenAngel Rodin so he can see the angels (and Bayonetta) in Purgatorio whenever he wants.
