From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

The Monocle/Spectacles were used by War Lords Von Weich and Smythe to implant suggestions into the minds of their human subordinates, ensuring total obedience and an escape from awkward situations; such as a human discovering a SIDRAT. The true term for these devices has never been stated, but they are clearly of alien origin. Whilst many of the Resistance retained their will against the devices, private Moor succumbed to its brainwashing, convincing him that Von Weich was his commanding officer. Moor however finally broke free of his mental state and killed the War Lord. (DW: The War Games)

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]
