It's rare, but when required, they simply use the telekinetic eye to float the corrective lens in front of the eye that needs it. Telekinesis becomes particularly useful when mulit-focal lenses are required.

You got me stumped on this one.
Maybe one big monocle for the main eye and the rest of the eyballs are on their own?
An engineering task of this magnitude clearly requires magic to work properly. However, when dealing with a beholder, magic can be... tricky. After years of work and many spectacularly failed attempts (one of which involved a pair of magical spectacles wearing a beholder) an anti-anti-magic field was invented, that allows a beholder to wear a set of magical glasses without dispelling them every 3 seconds.
Of course beholders never need glasses! The Lord of Eyes would never allow such imperfections in his masterpieces. You will be getting a visitor shortly to "discuss" your insolence.
All beholders have a rare* condition that makes glasses ineffective. If they ever need corrective vision, they must wear hard contact lenses.
*Well, rare for everyone else, that is.
"...At least it tells us they understand our language; they're just not willing to speak to us in it. -Who knew they were French?"
Of COURSE they need glasses! No one is immune to aging....why do you think their anti-magic ray has a limited range? They're NEAR sighted!
But no one realizes this because the beholders don't wear glasses...no ears to hold the glasses up. So, the beholders go around near sighted, and grumpy because of it.

Depends. Have you ever been hit with a finely tuned Disintegrate ray? If not, the beholder was wearing glasses.
Why elementary my good fellow, monocles all around.
Proud member of Caffeine - we aint stragicially savy, but we get &@#$% done.
Of course not, they have enough Magic to fix any vision problems.
While they may occasionally need some vision correction glasses would affect the spells too much, so when needed they use some form of lasik.

Monocles. Lots of Monocles.

I'm not sure if they need it I'm sure if they wear it will not make they more beauty...
Yes, they do, but to make glasses for Beholders, you just need a dead Glass Spider, separate the middle section of its body, and tie it around the Beholder's head and there you go, instant Beholder Glasses.
And for their eyestalks, use the same method, but with Baby Glass Spiders
Just a random, forgettable NPC doing things an NPC does
Things that NPCs do include, but are not limited to:
Having a gold goblet over my head to indicate availability of a quest
Having a catchphrase that never really catches on
Having various rewards that are generally not worth the trouble
Wandering around randomly
Giving out obvious information if it wasn't obvious enough
Repeating the same lines over and over again
Repeating the same lines over and over again
No, don't think so..........no ears to hang them on.
"Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad."
First you giant eye-patch the anti-magic eye - just cuz. Then you fashion a chain-mail beholder "hoody-hood-only" that has the correct magnification/location inserts. Third - have a mage enchant the lenses for focusing the bursts similar to a "death star" beam. (Note the enchantments stick because of that "what seemed useless" eyepatch at the start). Fourth, spin the beholder. Wait... what was the question?
