to:

* ''ComicBook/{{Empowered}}'': Mind████ is a telepath who is blind and mute, and thus must use the eyes of those around her in order to see. This wasn't her choice. Her brother puppeteered her into cutting out her eyes and tongue with a rusty pair of scissors in an effort to force her to use her powers more and grow stronger. He was stopped before he could make her deafen herself. She's especially annoyed that it ''worked''. She's one of the strongest telepaths who ever lived simply because she had no option to be anything else.

* ''ComicBook/JudgeDredd'': A graphic example in ''Fall of Deadworld'' when a recently turned-evil psionic Judge uses a foot soldier's [[EyeScream ripped-out eyeball]] to see what's happening elsewhere.

to:

* ''Series/MastersOfHorror'': The premise of "Chocolate" is that a man suddenly starts seeing what an unfamiliar woman living in another part of the country is seeing. He becomes alienated from his family and tracks the woman down, thinking that they must be MindlinkMates, but it turns out that she's just a criminal and immediately tries to kill him for knowing enough about her to put her away.

This skill can be useful in a variety of situations but is [[LivingBodysuit particularly suited to spying]]. It means that only one character needs to be in the (presumably dangerous) situation, while the other character – who may have more knowledge but fit in less well – can watch from safety. It is also necessary (among other senses) for remotely operated PeoplePuppets.

This skill can sometimes be used as replacement vision by a character who suffers from [[TemporaryBlindness Temporary (or not so temporary) Blindness]]. Even they are not blind, a character may use it for a similar reason if the host has a [[SensoryIndex different type of vision]] and [[SuperSenses can see other things the viewer]] [[TrueSight normally can't]], although this is normally more temporary.

In a more humorous application, when used short-range this can even serve double-duty as a mirror.

* Throughout the whole ''Franchise/GhostInTheShell'' franchise, Motoko makes common practice out of hacking into the cyberbrains of bystanders so she can see what the situation is through their point of view (If not also taking control of their bodies in the process). Among some of the people she hacked into were terrorists, androids, and even other policewomen.
* Pain from ''Franchise/{{Naruto}}'' has 6 bodies, each having [[MagicalEye a pair of Rinnegan]]; one of its functions being a "shared link of vision" between them, allowing him to look at many directions at once.

[[AC: {{Literature}}]]
* ''Literature/ArtemisFowl'' has a technological version in the Iris Cam, a micro-camera in a contact lens. At different times, we see it used by both Holly and Artemis.
* In ''Literature/TheObernewtynChronicles'' Elspeth is able to link with Mathew and see through his eyes, particularly useful [[spoiler: while he is playing bait for the slavers]]. Once he is [[spoiler: taken]], she is unable to find anyone else with a suitably compatible mind, relying instead on relayed images.
** In ''The Sending'' Elspeth has several dreams where she views scenes through Rushton's eyes, [[spoiler: thanks to their golden MindlinkMates bond.]]
* This is used several times in the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' series, mostly between Heralds and their [[BondCreatures Companions]] ([[SapientSteed horse-shaped]], but not actually animals).
** ''Collegium Chronicles'': In a humourous example, Mags and Dallen briefly use this method as a mirror, and also while Dallen is borrowing Mag's body to weave braids as Midwinter gifts. In another instance, Mags is undercover disguised as a blind beggar and navigates and watches for his quarry by skimming the surface thoughts of people passing by.
** ''Brightly Burning'': After he is blinded in an attack, [[spoiler: Pol]] is able to use his Companion's eyes to read maps and help direct the battle.
** ''Mage Storms'': This is reversed at one point with Karal and Florian; Florian looking through Karal's eyes during a function and prompting him to help keep track of who's who among the dignitaries. Also unusual in that Karal is not actually a Herald or Florian's Chosen. Later, after [[spoiler: Karal's]] sight is burned out during the Final Storm, [[spoiler: Altra the Firecat]] lets him see through his eyes.
** ''Arrows of the Queen'': Talia appears to do this at one point when testing the strength of her bond with Rolan. Noticeable in that their bond is one of the few where [[{{Telepathy}} communicating with words]] is difficult.
** ''Arrows of the Queen'': In a non-Companion example, Farseers often use their Talent to act as host and guide to other Heralds, allowing those with Talents such as [[MindOverMatter Fetching]] and Firestarting to work at a greater distance. Kris and Dirk are particularly good at working together in this way.
* Several times in the second book of Isobelle Carmody's ''Literature/TheLegendsongSaga'', Glynn has dreams where she is inside [[spoiler: Solen's]] mind, seeing and hearing what he sees and hears. This is due to [[spoiler: the feinna bond making them MindlinkMates]].
* In ''Threshold'' by David Palmer, the [[MindlinkMates protagonists]] also use this method as a mirror, while {{Shapeshifting}}.
* In the short story ''The Four-Hour Fugue'', the protagonist is blind and "sees" by telepathically accessing the eyes of those around her. She doesn't believe it at first (would you?) but a man she talks to proves it by demonstrating that she's using his own vision, which is colorblind.

* ''Series/StargateAtlantis''. After Teyla discovers that she has Wraith DNA and can telepathically link with them the expedition attempts to use her to spy on the Wraith. She is able to briefly see through their eyes on the incoming invasion fleet before they notice and take control of her
* The hero of ''Series/FortuneHunter'' uses camera contact lenses and a two-way earpiece to transmit what he sees and ears to his MissionControl. In the French dub, it's mentioned in the OpeningNarration and alluded to in [[MarketBasedTitle the French title]], ''Dans l'Œil de l'Espion'' (''In the Spy's Eye'').

* In ''VideoGame/CallOfCthulhuDarkCornersOfTheEarth'', during the last bossfight, the player character has to control summoned Deep Ones to flip four switches so Mother Hydra's shield is deactivated.
** Also, at various point of the game, the view switches from the player character's to that of different creatures stalking him, although it's not made clear if he actually sees what they see or if he just feels their presence.

[[AC: {{Webcomics}}]]
* In ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'', robots' vision feeds are publicly accessible by default. This comes in handy if a group of robots all need a type of extra vision that only one of them has (like [[XRayVision backscatter X-ray]]), but it also means that, among other things, most robots must have built-in CensorBox software just in case.

to:

** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'': Past Xavier is able to figure out where Raven is heading because when he had temporarily "possessed" a stewardess who had bumped into his foster sister, the stewardess had picked up Raven's plane ticket from the floor, and he can read its contents from the stewardess' field of vision. In ''The Rogue Cut'', Future Xavier Professor X can view the mansion through Magneto's and Iceman's minds, and he gives them instructions as they walk in hidden passageways towards the Cerebro room.
