* In ''Webcomic/TheDragonDoctors'', [[http://dragondoctors.dhscomix.com/archives/comic/ch-8-page-13 this trope lay behind Sarin's monocle]] pre-GenderBender.
* ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'': While not all the [[MadScientist Sparks]] in the work wear glasses all of the notable glasses wearers are either Sparks or elderly.



* The blue guy with glasses in ''{{Webcomic/Irrelevator}}'' is stickman wearing glasses. Being smart is [[http://i.imgur.com/7bWEBWM.gif his thing]], he does [[http://i.imgur.com/UpjtOeC.gif earn the]] [[http://i.imgur.com/JAlIDL3.gif title of being the]] [[http://i.imgur.com/1LY94sw.gif smart]] [[http://i.imgur.com/n26DyxC.gif guy though]].

* ''WebComic/TowerOfGod'': It's pretty unlikely that any of the leaders of the Ten Families have mortal eyesight deficiencies, since they're PhysicalGods, but TheSmartGuy of the group, Po Bidau Gustang, wears a pair of attractive glasses anyway. They enable him to better see the flow of [[MagicByAnyOtherName Shinsoo]].

* Myopia actually does correlate with IQ. #4 of ''Website/{{Cracked}}'''s [[http://www.cracked.com/article_20332_5-unrealistic-movie-cliches-that-are-scientifically-accurate.html 5 Unrealistic Movie Cliches That Are Scientifically Accurate]] points out a study finding that intelligence and education are somehow correlated with nearsightedness in real life. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myopia#Education_and_IQ Confirmed]] by Wiki/TheOtherWiki as well. Contact lenses, laser correction, and fake glasses can still throw this trope off, however.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/AssassinationClassroom'', Koutarou Takebayashi and Manami Okuda are the only Class 3-E students who wear glasses, and both of them are among the smarter students in the class. [[spoiler:In the epilogue, they combine their knowledge to develop universal artificial blood.]]
* Invoked in a chapter of ''Manga/SquidGirl'', where the titular protagonist becomes convinced that wearing glasses automatically ''makes'' one smarter, so she starts wearing a pair of PurelyAestheticGlasses. It doesn't work that way, but it does make her look cuter than usual.

** In the direct SequelSeries INNOCENTS'' Fate is now shown wearing glasses as well, most likely to emphasise the slight TimeSkip between series.

* The Beast from ''ComicBook/{{X-Men}}'' (who's a GeniusBruiser) wears glasses when he reads. (And it looks kind of funny, considering that he's a muscular guy covered with blue fur.)
