A pair of lenses is a tool that appears in NetHack. It is made of glass. The Eyes of the Overworld are an artifact pair of lenses.

Description

While worn, lenses protect your eyes from the raven's blinding attack and spat venom, but not from thrown cream pies or other sources of blindness. Wearing lenses improve your chances of finding something when searching, and also increases your chances of successfully reading a spellbook by 10% while reducing the time taken reading by 1/3.[1]

Lenses cannot be worn at the same time as a blindfold or a towel.

The following information pertains to an upcoming version (NetHack 3.7.0). If this version is now released, please verify that it is still accurate, then update the page to incorporate this information.

You can no longer wear lenses while in a headless form.

History

The pair of lenses was added in NetHack 3.3.0.

Variants

In FIQHack, lenses also grant automatic searching when worn[2].
