Protection from the sun's glare

Many of our customers have found that the protective AirShield eye cup on 7eye glasses improves protection from the sun's glare compared to normal wraparound sunglasses.

This can be very beneficial if you suffer from light sensitivity (photophobia) because the AirShield blocks the glare from that you may normally experience around the edges of the frame on your sunglasses.
