* [[Franchise/{{Superman}} Clark Kent]], of course, whose glasses mainly serve as [[ClarkKenting his disguise]]. In some versions his glasses do have something special about them. ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} sometimes wears glasses for similar reasons.

* In ''Manga/KatekyoHitmanReborn'', Gokudera Hayato aquires a pair of glasses half way through the series for no apparent reason, aside from the fact that they make him [[MrFanservice look even cuter]]. Well, he does seem to use them whenever he reads things. When studying Sistema CAI, when teaching Tsuna to swim, when trying to learn how to properly cook... Looks like it can be deduced that Gokudera has a little vision problem when it comes to reading things up close. He seems to have no problem in school without his glasses, however. He doesn't care about school, though.

* In one episode of ''Series/EvenStevens'', [[DumbMuscle Donny]] watches a video on [[FeigningIntelligence how to appear smarter]]. One of the video's suggestions is to wear glasses (Also, to use big words like "cornucopia, meaning 'bountiful' or 'a lot of'"). When Donny notices a reporter was likewise wearing pointless glasses, he realizes [[BrokenPedestal she's nof as smart as Ren thinks she is]].

* ''LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya'': Yuki Nagato's glasses seem to be simply an aesthetic feature, and she stops wearing them after Kyon tells her she's cuter without them.
** She uses them for "magical" purposes in some novels (such as The Disappearance) but they don't correct her vision. Except in the [[Manga/TheVanishingOfNagatoYukiChan spinoff]], where she's BlindWithoutEm.

* Angela Castle, the UNIT scientific advisor in ''Fanfic/TheRoadToShalka'' wears these to give herself an air of professionality (she's really insecure). Thanks to some EpiphanyTherapy from a certain [[BluntHonesty harsh]] Time Lord, she gives them up in the end.

* In one ''PennyArcade'' strip, Gabe, tired of being a geek with perfect vision (other geeks call him "two-eyes"), gets "reverse laser surgery" so he'll need glasses.

* ''Film/Ghostbusters2016'': Kevin, the protagonists' handsome but oh so ditzy secretary, wears glasses, but he took out the lenses because he kept having to clean them. Being a tremendous {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, it's anyone's guess whether they were purely aesthetic before he did that, or they were prescription and he just haven't realized.

* Gonta Gokuhara from ''VisualNovel/NewDanganRonpaV3'' sports a pair of glasses, despite the fact that his eyesight is a positively superhuman 20/0.625, and is good enough to see [[spoiler: the microscopic Nanokuma cameras flying around the facility]]. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] as Gonta desires to become a civilized gentleman, and he likely considers glasses to add to that image.
