This Trope: A nice girl with glasses who looks best with them on.

  • Played straight: Kimiko[1] wears glasses, has a sweet and innocent personality, and gets lots of attention from guys while she does. But when The Glasses Come Off, everyone stops noticing her.
  • Exaggerated: Kimiko is a fuckin' Mary Sue who makes EVERYONE have a crush on her when she wears glasses, even Bible-thumping heterosexual girls who are against gay marriage!
  • Justified: Kimiko has very ugly eyes, and her glasses help make up for that.
  • Inverted: The Glasses Gotta Go. Kimiko looks hotter without her glasses than she does with.
    • OR: Megane, Glasses wearing boy.
  • Subverted: Kimiko looks good either way...
  • Double Subverted: ...but she either prefers to wear her glasses, or someone she likes is a glasses fetishist.
    • Alternatively, she has a special prescription lens that doesn't lend itself to contacts or surgery.
  • Parodied: As a Play for Laughs, she'll fawn over her glasses like someone Gushing About Shows You Like, or she'll actually try to masturbate with her glasses!
    • Or when she removes her glasses, Kimiko turns into a hideous monster for some inexplicable reason.
      • Or she turns into a hideous monster WITH the glasses and yet everyone finds her extremely more attractive than before.
  • Deconstructed: Kimiko beats the shit out of a glasses fetishist who hits on her...
  • Reconstructed: ...then, when he gets glasses himself, she finds herself attracted to him, and apologizes. And they become friends.
  • Zig Zagged: Kimiko has one group of guys who hit on her with her glasses on, and another group who likes her when her glasses are off.
  • Averted: Kimiko wears contacts. When given a choice between glasses or laser surgery, she decides to let the eye doctors FIRE THEIR LAZORS!!111!!1
    • OR: No one is seen hitting on her even when she DOES wear glasses.
  • Enforced: "Maybe I'll attract more guys if I wear glasses."
  • Lampshaded: "What is it about my glasses that drives these guys wild!?!"
  • Invoked: "No, Kimiko! Put your glasses back on! I like you better when you wear them!"
  • Defied: "^^^^^Fuck no, bitch."
  • Discussed: "Well, my doctor said I have 20/200 vision, and there's this guy who has a crush on me...do you think he'll like me better with glasses, or without?"
  • Conversed: "Those nerdy guys in that Star Trek fanclub really like it when a girl wears glasses...!"

Don't forget to put your glasses on as you go back to the main page, especially if you're Blind Without'Em!
