** A twofer for Matt Murdock: Charlie Cox isn't blind, so the pair of copper-lens sunglasses he wears to play Matt are this. In-universe, Matt wears the glasses for same reason every other blind person wears them: because not wearing them would weird people out regarding his unfocused non-seeing eyes. That said, in private, like when alone in his apartment, or when he's just with Foggy and/or Karen, he'll take them off since they're used to his blindness quirks.

* On ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' Brian tries to show [[Series/TheHills Lauren Conrad]] how smart he is by taking out glasses to read. When she asks when he got reading glasses, he says he always wore them. She points out she knows they aren't real as she can see the ''Film/AustinPowers'' logo.

* On The Voice Season Four finalist Michelle Chamuel wore large glasses, which caused her fans to don similar hipster glasses. Usher has donned them in support, as has Shakira after her team was eliminated.

* Kenji from ''VisualNovel/KatawaShoujo'' claims to wear glasses solely for the effect. He's legally blind with or without them, and a compulsive liar to boot. As usual, it's hard to tell with him.



* ''VideoGame/{{Persona 5}}'': After the MiscarriageOfJustice that lands him on probation, the protagonist starts wearing NerdGlasses to appear more mild-mannered. Unsurprisingly, taking them off doesn't stop him from reading his phone and various books, firing guns with pinpoint accuracy, or driving a car.

**Toby Leonard Moore can see fine without glasses. The pair that he sports to play James Wesley are used to [[FourEyesZeroSoul make him look more intimidating]].

** The special episode [[Recap/DoctorWho2007CiNSTimeCrash "Time Crash"]], where the Doctor teases his own past self for wearing glasses he doesn't need in order to look "a bit clever". Ironically, the Tenth Doctor himself is practically infamous for his use of the brainy specs and later admits his hypocrisy, "Snap!" The fact he has worn them in not only his fifth and tenth incarnations, but also, at least once in a TelevisionTieInNovel, his eighth, which were pretty much his [[OlderThanTheyLook youngest-looking]] incarnations, rather suggests he might not really need them and just wears them to give himself more gravitas. Out of universe, Creator/DavidTennant (the Tenth Doctor) has said that he wanted to have his Doctor frequently wearing glasses in order to give glasses-wearing kids a heroic role-model.
