This is the first of a series of stories on face shields, or eyewear designed to protect the eyes from solar radiation.
This article originally appeared in The Washington Post.
The glasses look like a typical face shield, but they’re actually protective goggles designed to deflect sun rays from the eyes.
But how do they work?
The glasses are made from silicon carbide, a semiconductor that is widely used in computers and optical equipment.
They are about the size of a small coin, and they fit snugly into your nose.
The glasses are coated in a clear film that is opaque to the sun.
When the sun’s rays hit the lenses, they absorb the heat.
Scientists have designed and tested a variety of glasses that use silicon carbides to shield the eyes against solar radiation, and researchers are working to make them safer.
A face shield is a kind of protective eyewash.
It looks like a face shield in the picture.
As the sun is reflected off the lens, it absorbs the heat, and the glasses reflect the sun back into space.
At the other end of the spectrum, there is the glass that has a face covering, like a visor, but with a thin sheet of silicon carbiding that reflects sunlight back into the environment.
One of the most exciting uses for the glasses is for people with low-vision, according to Daniel Lins, director of the Center for Research in Vision Research at the University of Michigan, who has studied the technology.
He said the glasses are often worn to help people with severe cases of retinal detachment, or “bizarre visual abnormalities.”
One advantage of these glasses is that they can be easily repaired.
They can also help reduce the number of complications from retinal detachments.
“If you’re not wearing them, you’re really not protecting your eyes from radiation,” he said.
In an ideal world, scientists would like to make these glasses more versatile.
“It could be used to protect other parts of the body,” Lins said.
“For example, people with diabetes or a certain eye disease might have a different risk.”
