* Jack wears an astoundingly huge pair of these with his Main/HatOfAuthority in ''VideoGame/CaveStory''.
* Jeff of ''Videogame/EarthBound'' wears the classic thick square frames. They go well with his suit and bowtie and bowl cut, and he's a GadgeteerGenius ''extraordinare.'' They're also OpaqueNerdGlasses, as seen on both his clay model and sprite.
* In ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' the Four Eyes trait increases the Courier's Perception with glasses, but [[BlindWithoutEm decreases it without them]].
* Mid Previa of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'', whom the party meets in the Ancient Library, wears glasses with thick orange frames. They also have very large lenses.



* An unusual case of PurelyAestheticGlasses appears in ''VideoGame/Persona5'': After the MiscarriageOfJustice that lands him on probation at the start of the story, the protagonist starts wearing big, clunky circular glasses to appear more mild-mannered. He takes them off when reading, whenever he's in the Velvet Room, and whenever he's in the [[MentalWorld Metaverse]], and he can see perfectly fine without them. An actual case where the user ''does'' legitimately need glasses, meanwhile, is the extremely [[{{Hikkikomori}} shy and anxiety-ridden]] Futaba Sakura, a [[WrenchWench programming prodigy]] and [[GamerChick nerdy gamer]] who spends all of her time on the computer.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'': Whenever Samantha Carter appears in an AlternateUniverse scenario, she tends to have this. One dorky AlternateTimeline Daniel also had thick-framed nerd glasses, to contrast with the regular glasses the character wears, which were large-framed nerd glasses but by this point in the series, Daniel had undergone enough character development to no longer be dorky, and to emphasize the extreme dorkiness of the alternate version they needed something different.
* Early in the run of the show, Adam Savage of ''{{Series/Mythbusters}}'' wore large, chunky plastic glasses that even other members of the team called 'coke-bottle lenses'. He wears smaller frames in more recent seasons, but they're still thick, black plastic.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'': TheDollEpisode "Chinga" had a SadistTeacher named Jane who slapped an autistic girl because she had a tantrum (true, she was a CreepyChild with a PerversePuppet, but still) and would like to [[BurnTheWitch burn her mother]]. Jane's glasses exhibited nearly every feature of the Nerd Glasses: very unflattering, with thick coke-bottled lenses and strangely-shaped large chunky frames. Could she be ''more'' unlikeable?
* Sloane, in ''Series/TheNewsroom'', occasionally wears thick-framed and unstylish glasses while dressed down to remind us that she's a nerd. While not wearing them, she's usually very fashionable.
