Glasses are a set of lenses fitted into frames that allow for fixed, enhanced, or altered sight.

Use

  • The Tenth Doctor wore a pair of tortoise-shell rimmed square glasses, usually when he was concentrating on a particular object or subject. (DW: Tooth and Claw et al) He used a pair of 3D glasses when observing the effects of the Void and its effect on people and objects. (DW: Doomsday)
It is interesting to note that in Time Crash the Tenth Doctor said that the Fifth Doctor did not need glasses, but wore them to make him look smarter.

Glasses in Fallout 3 come in 6 principal variants as well as a few unique pieces. They can be worn with some helmets and any headgear which is considered a hat, headband, head wrap, cap or wig.

Variants

Eyeglasses

"Sunco" Eyeglasses are basic, black rimmed glasses.

They can be acquired from Jonas during your escape from Vault 101, Murphy or Dr. Zimmer. They can also be found in a Pulowski Preservation Shelter in L'Enfant, inside Arlington Library in a bathroom on a hand dryer, at Dukov's Place on the mounted Brahmin heads, in Lady Frumperton's Fashions in Dupont Circle or Tenpenny Tower (two pairs). They can also be acquired during your travels aboard Mothership Zeta.

GlassesReadingChild

GlassesReadingChild are the children's version of Reading Glasses. When worn by adults, they are much larger and will hover in front of the wearer's forehead.

They can be reverse-pickpocketed from at least one of the nameless children in Little Lamplight. Using a Radiation Suit will make the NPC remove all headgear, enabling you to pickpocket it.

Reading Glasses

Reading glasses are classic fabricated glasses for those who suffer from farsightedness.

Found on a counter inside in Lady Frumperton's Fashions, and in the RobCo Facility, on a sink in the bathroom (first door on left from main entrance). Also worn by Red of Big Town and by comrade Irving Cheng of Tenpenny Tower. If you happen to find Doc Hoff, either by one of the citys, or in the wastes, he is wearing reading glasses and can be Reverse pickpocketed to obtain them, you could also kill him and loot his body.

Sunglasses

Slightly shaded glasses to protect the eyes from the sun.

A pair is worn by Sam Warrick during a random encounter and another by Snowflake, the ghoul barber in Underworld. They can be found on the table with the clock, wrench, and coffee mug, in the Irradiated Metro or in Roosevelt Academy Arts and Athletics Hall, in a bathroom on a hand dryer. You can also obtain a pair from two wastelanders somewhere out in the wasteland. (Broken Steel Add-On) There will also be a recording of one of them talking about ambushing a water caravan passing by.

Tinted Reading Glasses

Tinted Reading Glasses are mentioned in the safety booklet provided by Vault-Tec: "When exiting the vault your eyes will not be used to the light of the sun, so tinted eyewear is advisable to prevent damage to the retina." Strangely, wearing it does not stop the burning light entering the players eyes.

Available in Vault 101 from Floyd Lewis, Vault 101 engineer, found dead by the player during the early quest Escape! They can also be found on the corpse of Ryan Briggs.

Tortiseshell Glasses

"Protecto" Tortiseshell Glasses [sic] are dark, tinted spectacles and can only be obtained from a limited number of places.

They are worn by Mister Burke and Martha Wilson, for example. A pair of the glasses can be found on the table in front of the radio next to the Ghoul barber Snowflake on the second floor of Underworld or on the Brahmin head mounted to the wall in the foyer in Dukov's Place. They can also be found in the Citadel mess hall, on the left most table on the back wall. Tortiseshell Glasses can also be found on display at New Urban Apparel in Tenpenny Tower. They can also be acquired during your travels aboard Mothership Zeta.

ST Expanded

Up to date as of February 07, 2010

The Star Trek Expanded Universe Database is for fanon and related content. See Memory-Alpha.org for the canon Star Trek wiki.

Glasses (also called spectacles) are lenses held in front of the eyes by frames made of metal or plastic in order to improve defective eyesight. Contact lenses work similarly but sit directly on the cornea of the wearer.

By the 23rd century advances in medical science had made the wearing of glasses very rare. Root normally wears contact lenses but when scrambling to respond to a red alert wears glasses instead. (TOSS # 19: "Condition Red")

Jennifer Cole was once seen wearing eyeglasses. (Star Trek: Hidden Frontier: "Enemy Unknown, Part 2")

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Noa Briqualon wearing spectacles.

Spectacles, also called glasses, were a very primitive way of augmenting one's sight, consisting of two small discs made of visually amplifying lenses which were placed in front of one's eyes.

History

C-3PO wearing spectacles as a disguise.

They were very rare, as advanced surgery and cybernetic implants were more efficient in many ways. Yet there were few individuals who used spectacles. Noa Briqualon, who was stranded on Endor for many years, used spectacles,[1] as did Saun Dann[2] and unidentified patrons in bars both on Roon[3] and Aduba-3.[4] C-3PO stole his spectacles and wore them as an attempt to disguise himself from Koong's henchmen.[3]

Vago the Hutt also used spectacles on occasion[5]. Wald, the X-wing pilot also wore spectacles.[6] Orman Tagge[7], Korkeal Hai[8] and Garindan[9] used goggles. The Dulok shaman Umwak created his special glasses to find a way through Arbo Maze; however, he didn't see a thing in them.[10]

Sullustan forger Magar Jaros corrected his defective vision with computerized magnifocals, which were similar to a pince-nez.[11] Darnada, a Dug Black Sun Vigo, wore a monocle. This was a corrective lens that was worn over only one eye, and was often more of a status symbol than a practical accessory.[12]

Appearances

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Glasses are a crude human technology. Normally, they are intended to enhance eyesight when the wearer suffers from an optical deficiency. (Humans have not developed a successful method of replacing inefficient optic organs, and their repair techniques are as yet too expensive for common use.) Other humans wear glasses to limit the overly intense light from the Sun, or simply to look "cool". Humans are a very strange species indeed.

Fiction

Generation One

Chip Chase, in keeping with his nerd identity, wears glasses. That guy's got bad legs and bad eyes. Some people just can't catch a break.

Movie

Archibald Amundsen Witwicky wore glasses at the time of his expedition to the Arctic. When he discovered Megatron, the Decepticon burned the location of the All Spark onto Witwicky's glasses (which also had the effect of driving him blind and insane). Over a century later, his descendant Sam tried to sell the glasses on eBay.
