*A non-comedic form of this trope happens in ''I Never Really Knew'' as one the things that tells Satsuki there's something wrong with Ryuuko's eyesight, as she had ran into a wall trying to go through a doorway. A sequel, ''Orange Juice'', Ryuuko brings home the titular liquid instead of milk because the cartons feel identical, however, this trope is more directly invoked, as the workers at the convenient store played a prank on her involving this trope because they know she can't tell the difference.

* On ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'', a Magoo-like character crashes into Mung Daal's kitchen, mistaking it for his home, and tries to make out with Schnitzel, whom he mistakes for his wife. Throughout the episode, he confuses a boiling tea kettle for a phone (the which he burns Schnitzel's face with)and eats plates. Due to this, he's also a wanted criminal.

Added DiffLines:

* Taken to an extreme in the ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' episode "Rixty Minutes." [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Ants-in-My-Eyes Johnson]] is completely blind, [[EyeScream on account of all the ants in his eyes,]], yet insists on running an appliance store. As his commercial demonstrates, he doesn't actually know the prices on anything in his store, and doesn't notice when people simply walk out the door with stolen appliances in tow.


* Played seriously in ''Manga/DetectiveConan'': The new assistant homeroom teacher Rumi Wakasa is apparently [[spoiler:blind in her right eye]]. In one case, when she is distracted, one of her students approaches her [[spoiler:from the right, but Rumi can't see the student even as she turns her head both ways]]. She has to turn her head [[spoiler:all the way over to the right to finally see the student out of her left eye]].

* In ''{{Manga/Gintama}}'' anytime Sacchan takes off her glasses she ends up mistaking somebody or even something for Gintoki. In the Glasses Arc she gets from him a pair of glasses that aren't her prescription and refuses to wear her own, which almost gets her killed, because you ''really'' shouldn't do that
if you're an assassin on a job.

Added DiffLines:

* It is in fact possible for a blind person to serve as a guide for another blind person if the guide is familiar with the surroundings, or if both people want to stay together in a crowd. Though in deference to the page quote, orientation and mobility training didn't exist in 1st century Palestine.


%%* The blind hermit in ''Film/YoungFrankenstein''.

%%* * The blind hermit in ''Film/YoungFrankenstein''.''Film/YoungFrankenstein'' pours hot soup in the monster's lap, smashes his wine mug with a too-enthusiastic toast, and finally lights his thumb on fire instead of a cigar.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/WhatsTheWorstThatCouldHappen'': When blinded by mace, Earl fires several shots at Max, thinking that he is Kevin.


* An example sort of serious, sort of funny example occurs in ''Series/AnneWithAnE''. Anne has her friend over for a tea party and goes into the Cuthbert family's pantry for a cherry cordial she remembers was there. She isn't blind, and it isn't particularly dark: it's just that the bottles aren't labeled, so she's "blind" in the sense of not knowing what she's getting. A sensible person would have left it alone, but Anne isn't sensible. She picks up a bottle of bright red liquid. [[spoilers: The bright red liquid in the bottle she picks up turns out to be homemade currant wine. As it is homemade alcohol, the alcohol content is probably on the generous side. The adults are NOT amused, although the girls didn't do anything dangerous.]]

* A serious example is found in an episode of ''Series/{{JAG}}'', where a senior fighter pilot misjudged the height and distance to a ridge due to his failing eyesight. This caused his wingman to clip a telephone pole with his F-14 Tomcat, lose control and eject. The plane crashes into oncoming traffic, killing a mother and child.
