Why is it "okulary" here when in the sentence "Dlaczego nie nosisz okularów" it is a different form? Does the negation play a part in the conjugation?

Yes, a very important one.

If a verb needs Accusative (and it's Accusative here, even if it looks Nominative), it turns into Genitive when negated.
