First of all we all have a blind spot in our vision, on the outside, its where the optic nerve leaves the back of the eye, there is no retina over the optic nerve. This is called the "physiological blind spot" and we don't see it unless we go looking for it.

So let's say you have a blind spot due to disease that you are aware of. Glasses generally do not help that type of blind spot. A blind spot can be plotted out with a visual field test.
