** Creator/CharlieCox has said in interviews that Matt has a habit of wearing his glasses whenever he's around Karen because he feels that she’s able to read through him.
** In particular, when around people like Foggy or Claire who easily adjust to his blindness, Matt tends to be seen without his glasses.

him. Very often in Matt's conversations with Karen where he ''isn't'' wearing his glasses, he is letting his barriers down and saying truthful things.
** In particular, when around people like Foggy or Claire who easily have had time to adjust to his blindness, knowing Matt is blind, he tends to be seen go without his glasses.the sunglasses.

* ''Series/Daredevil2015'': Matt tends to be more open and less guarded if he has his glasses off.

** In particular, when around people like Foggy or Claire who easily adjust to his blindness, Matt tends to be seen without his glasses.
** In ''Series/TheDefenders2017'', Matt removes his glasses when he and Series/{{Jessica Jones}} are entering Midland Circle so he can tie Jessica's scarf around her head. Only once Matt, Jessica, Luke and Danny get to the Royal Dragon does Matt return Jessica's scarf. He doesn't put his glasses back on, though, figuring he has no need to when in the company of other people with abilities. He doesn't put his glasses back on again until he's on his way to the ''Bulletin'' to ask Karen to get police protection with Foggy, Claire, Malcolm, Trish, and the others.
** Matt, Jessica and Luke are picked up by the cops after Elektra kills Stick and captures Danny. Matt has his glasses off while he's truthfully telling Foggy about what happened. He then slips his glasses back on as Misty enters the room and acts as uncooperative as possible to avoid dropping any hints that he's Daredevil, but Misty isn't buying it.

* Clark Kent wears glasses when he's not being ComicBook/{{Superman}}, though he also puts on nebbish behavior and about four extra layers of clothing to make him look pudgy instead of muscled. ''[[ComicBook/SupermanBirthright Birthright]]'' has some fun with this when depicting Clark and his parents turning Clark Kent into a man nobody would ever think is Superman: his mother's first orders are "no t-shirts!"

** [[ComicBook/Supergirl2005 Post-Crisis]] [[ComicBook/Supergirl2011 and]] [[ComicBook/SupergirlRebirth Post-Flashpoint]] ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} wears glasses and adopts a geeky if snarky behavior when she is being Linda Lang/Kara Danvers, and she takes them off when she has to perform her hero duty.



* The pre-[[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths Crisis]] version of WonderWoman.
* ComicBook/KittyPryde of the Comicbook/{{X-Men}} needs glasses, but hates wearing them and rarely does so.
** I suppose we should mention ComicBook/{{Cyclops}} while we're at it. Given that the glasses used to hold back his EyeBeams, taking them all the way off usually meant something was gonna get broke in a hurry.
*** Seldom demonstrated but awesome when it is: Cyke's visor, and shades as Scott Summers, are used to control the shape and strength of the blast even when he's actively using his powers. You don't fully understand until you see him take them off all the way and open his eyes fully. When that happens, "something" isn't gonna get broke - ''everything'' will get broke. For this reason, it's a weapon of last resort. However, if you absolutely have to get a [[HumongousMecha Sentinel]] off your lawn, it'll get vaporized.

* In ''Series/Supergirl2015'', Kara Danvers takes off her glasses when she fights as ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}. Justified, since her glasses are a part of her civilian disguise, plus they suppress her enhanced vision and hearing. (Also a practical consideration given she'd probably melt them the first time she used her heat vision even if they didn't suppress it.)

* Justified in ''Manga/{{Horimiya}}''. Miyamura hands his glasses to Tooru in chapter 7 right before headbutting Sengoku. Had he not done so, both of them probably would have gotten a face-full of glass.

* Gradually happens with Connie starting in [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Steven Universe's]] "An Indirect Kiss" from Season 1, where Steven shares a juice box with Connie and tells her about Amethyst's healing in exchange for letting him wear her glasses, which still have pink lenses. When she drinks from the juice box, some of Steven's magical healing saliva makes Connie's vision as good as new. She continues to wear the lens-less frames until after Season 2's "Nightmare Hospital", when she tells her mother about her experiences with the Gems, and then the frames no longer appear.

* Miki Kawai first appears in ''Manga/ASilentVoice'' wearing glasses and acts as a responsible class representative to the protagonist. She removes it in the second-half of the movie and reveals that she is anything but nice.




to:

* Averted in ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo''. Not only is Velma [[BlindWithoutEm partially blind]] without her glasses, she also seems to lose some of her intelligence as well. One episode has her mistaken a skeleton as Shaggy and the dungeon she's in as a playroom.

A good way to mark your hero as an intellectual is to stick him on the far side of a pair of NerdGlasses. A good way to make your character as a badass is to kick some ass. We also all know that guys who wear glasses can never kick asses. It's contractually forbidden. Thus when an [[BadassBookworm intellectual is about to kick ass]], the first thing he has to do is take off his glasses. (See: Male version of FlungClothing) For an additional humourous/intellectual touch, the characters may be shown taking especial care to put their glasses away in their pocket or in some other safe place, before commencing the violence.

* In DuelOfAges, the [[AllThereInTheManual extended description]] of the Vigilante, comments that he has "the eyes of a shop teacher" hidden behind his thick glasses. When he confronts the crackheads who led to the death of a young boy in his neighborhood, he takes off the glasses and they notice his eyes "were no longer the eys of a shop teacher."

* The first ''Film/MortalKombat'' has a variant. Johnny Cage shows up to fight Goro and is wearing sone CoolShades for the occasion. Goro takes them off and smashes them. Johnny snarks, ''"Those were $500 sunglasses,'' '''[[PrecisionFStrike asshole]]'''" and proceeds to outmaneuver Goro, starting with a GroinAttack. The game creators were amused enough to make that incident canon.
