* ''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.

* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'': In an early episode, Elliot is seen with a pair of glasses that disappears without explanation and never comes back. In the commentary, the writers noted that Sarah Chalke wore them because she thought it would make the character seem smarter.

** Another episode, about how the hospital's night staff are even weirder than the day staff, has a receptionist who is seen rubbing her eyes through her glasses, and later pushing them up by hooking a pencil through them. There are no lenses at all.

* In the same universe, some versions of Franchise/SpiderMan claim that Peter Parker never needed glasses at all, but his Aunt May feared he would strain his eyes by reading without them. They were broken in an early strip, and after that he has never worn them again. The gag shows up again every couple of years, where after seeing something supernatural/incredible, Peter will muse that maybe he needs to go back to wearing glasses.

* Charlie from the ''VideoGame/StreetFighterAlpha'' series is a well-educated individual (on top of being devilishly handsome) and can be seen removing his glasses before a fight. A bit of Capcom trivia reveals that the glasses are purely aesthetic, as his vision is just fine. Note that Charlie is an Air Force Pilot, and they have to have 20/20 vision.

Come ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV'' he has them on all the time, and occasionally does the ScaryShinyGlasses thing with them, to help show that he [[DarkerAndEdgier is not the]] [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds hero that he]] [[CameBackWrong used to be]].

* The aged-up, forensically reconstructed clay bust that was shown on Series/AmericasMostWanted and led to the capture of PaterFamilicide [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_List John Emil List]] was such an excellent representation of him partly because it included these; knowing that List was arrogant and would want to appear intelligent and professional, the profilers correctly predicted that he would wear them whether he had actual eye problems or not. [[Awesome/AmericasMostWanted They even got the type of glasses correct]].

* In one episode of ''Series/EvenStevens'', [[DumbMuscle Donny]] watches a video on 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'").

* Connie from ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' originally did need glasses, but as of "Indirect Kiss", her vision was restored by [[spoiler:Steven's healing spit]]. Not wanting to explain to her parents how her sight was magically fixed, she pops out the lenses on her glasses and keeps wearing the frame except when around Steven and the Crystal Gems.
