* Inverted in ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', "An Indirect Kiss". From Connie's view point, the shot focuses properly due to her eyesight being healed by Steven's healing powers.

** Usually, this involves John-117 (AKA: Master Chief) coming out of unconsciousness; in ''VideoGame/HaloCombatEvolved'' after his escape pod crashes, in ''VideoGame{{Halo 2}}'' after the Pelican dropship he's in is shot down, and in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 3}}'' after he falls from orbit. This happens to him multiple times in ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}''; after falling into a gravity well, after [[spoiler:getting tossed around by the Didact]], and after the ship he's on crashes (with his HUD also fizzing up).

* The ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'' series does this a few times throughout the series when John 117 (AKA: Master Chief) comes out of unconsciousness, most notably near the beginning of ''VideoGame/{{Halo 2}}'' and ''[[VideoGame/{{Halo 3}} 3]]''.
** In fact, this happens in nearly every ''Halo'' game. ''Halo'' after falling from the drop pod, and in ''Halo 2'' after the Pelican class gunship is shot down. This happens in other games too, but not after the first mission. It's after the second mission in ''Halo 3'', and ''VideoGame/{{Halo 4}}'' after falling into the gravity well, in addition to a later point in the game with more of an impairment shot, and with the HUD fizzing up also. This is even in ''Halo 3'' ODST at the very first instance control is given to the player character.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' has blood splatter on the screen if the player takes damage or is close to a messier opponent death. During withdrawal from a drug or after the player suffers from a crippled head or is otherwise low on health the screen will blur. Taking crippling damage to the head causes a concussion effect at random intervals, which includes bloom, blur, doubled vision, and an irritating high-pitch ringing sound. The [[spoiler: Enclave Stun grenade]] causes the blink-blink cam.

* Parodied in the sketch from ''The MitchellAndWebb Situation'' where Mitchell is sick and trying to get some bed rest and Webb, in a very old-school ObviouslyEvil manner, keeps trying to poison him. At one point we see the room twisting and rocking wildly from Mitchell's point of view, and then in the RevealShot, Webb is sitting over him waving a magnifying glass over his eyes.

This is a camera trick used to indicate that the character whose POV we are seeing is drugged, poisoned, sick, injured, or otherwise incapacitated and is about to faint... or die. Frequently this shot precedes a FadeToBlack that indicates the character has lost consciousness or an IrisOut as "everything goes black". Sound Effects may enhance the effect: we hear the impaired character's heavy, labored breathing, for example, or his pounding heartbeat. Wavering horns, woodwinds, and/or strings can further simulate disorientation or drowsiness.
