Often, it's done for RuleOfCool. In many cases, the glasses are only opaque when necessary for dramatic effect. In reality, the opaque effect is due to reflection and refraction of light off the lenses at just the right angle. Quite frequently, this shows up in instances where the lighting of the scene does not plausibly allow for this.

* Miki Yoshikawa is ''really'' fond of this trope in both of her works - ''Manga/FlunkPunkRumble'' and ''Manga/YamadaKunAndTheSevenWitches'' - to the point that it appears many times in every scene that involves characters with glasses. Usually when the character(s) acts weird or comedic, but also when they are seen from a distance, in which case it's probably just laziness.

* Happens if your glasses prescription is strong enough. Lenses reflect light: the thicker the lens, the more light reflects. Thankfully, high-index lenses with anti-glare coatings go a long way towards making those lovely eyes of yours visible again.
* Mirrored sunglasses usually appear opaque.

* Between this and ScaryShinyGlasses, you very rarely see Kobayashi's eyes in ''TheLawOfUeki.'' After he gets [[NeverSayDie sent to Hell]] as punishment for saving Ueki from being killed by Robert, he isn't wearing glasses for a while, and when he starts wearing them again, you can see his eyes more often. [[HellishPupils Not that that's necessarily a good thing...]]
