* For the surprise of the watchers, when the time for the Obligatory Makeover in ''YoSoyBettyLaFea'' arrived the heroine ditched her horn-rimmed thick glasses for... fashionable, thin-framed glasses with a correct formula and compressed glasses. Her mentor Catalina Angel actually suggested her to try contacts, but because Betty had to go back ASAP to her former circumstances and she wouldn't have time to get accustomed to them, Ms. Angel just dragged her to the nearest optometrist and selected a better suited pair.

* Referenced in ''TheOffice'' when Pam wears glasses for an episode. Michael even tells her point-blank that to be attractive you have to take the glasses off. However it's soon subverted when Kevin is revealed to have a fetish for girls in glasses.

* In the WhateleyUniverse, Bugs (Bunny Cormick) normally looks like the blonde bombshell of your wildest dreams. But her power is that she's a genius inventor, so, being GenreSavvy, she ''puts on'' the studious glasses to look like what one of her friends calls 'Professor Bunny'.

* In the "heroes don't wear glasses" sub-category: One of the main characters in the ''YoungWizards'' series of books, Nita, was originally described as wearing glasses in the first book. In the second book, the description went away. In the following books, one could probably forget she'd ever been described that way in the first place, and no explanation as to why she suddenly got 20/20 vision was given. It gets a passing explanation from Dairine, in ''Wizard's Holiday'': Nita had astigmatism, but grew out of it, apparently.

* Otacon in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots'', at Naomi's suggestion. Which is decidedly odd, as he had far left behind his actual [[{{Otaku}} namesake-look]] and had been noticably {{bishonen}} for a long time. [[spoiler: It's not all bad, though -- eventually, he puts them back on.]]
* In the first ''TokimekiMemorial'' , if you are pursuing {{Meganekko}} Mio Kisaragi and choice a certain option, she will appear for her confession wearing contacts.

* Pretty much the whole point of the music video for the song "You Belong With Me" by TaylorSwift. She starts off with huge cokebottle glasses which she wears for most of the music videos, then right before she goes to the HighSchoolDance, she takes off her glasses and puts on a pretty dress, prompting her true love to dump his skank ho of a girlfriend[[note]][[ActingForTwo played by Swift in a wig]][[/note]] and ending the music video with a TrueLovesKiss.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheSmurfs'' episode "Symbols Of Wisdom", Brainy thinks that the reason Papa Smurf gets more respect than him is that Papa Smurf doesn't wear glasses, so Brainy tries to go about his daily business not wearing any glasses -- only to stumble into things like Painter's painting-in-progress of Smurfette.

Asked if he will skate with her, Marshmello joins her later on the skate rink floor, having been harassed by his boss all night, taking off her glasses, prompting a light to shine down, after which she shakes the barrettes and bobby pins out of her hair, after which they skate together.
