Piggy's glasses were misted again--this time with humiliation. "You told 'em. After what I said." His face flushed, his mouth trembled. [...] "About being called Piggy.

Jack pointed suddenly. "His specs--use them as burning glasses!" Piggy was surrounded before he could back away. "Here--let me go!" His voice rose to a shriek of terror as Jack snatched the glasses off his face. "Mind out! Give 'am back! I can hardly see! You'll break the conch!" (Golding 40).
Ralph made a step forward and Jack smacked Piggy's head. Piggy's glasses flew off and tinkled on the rocks. Piggy cried out in terror: "My specs!" He went crouching and feeling over the rocks but Simon, who got there first, found them for him. [...] "One side's broken" (Golding 71).

"You pinched Piggy's specs," said Ralph, breathlessly. "You've got to give them back. "Got to? Who says?" [...] "I say! You voted for me for chief. Didn't you hear the conch? You played a dirty trick--we'd have given you fire if you asked for it--" (Golding 176).
