Abstract:

On the basis of the results of the questionnaire and informal discussions with some of the participants in this program of evaluation, a requirement and recommended design for sunglasses, both prescription and plano, are established. The sun andor glare protection of the size lens used in the Navy experimental sunglasses is preferable to the smaller lens which is being specified by MIL-G-25948USAF. The more angular cut-away of the portion of the experimental lens in the nose-cheek immediate area is comfortable for a larger number of persons, including those who have high cheek bones andor fleshy cheeks.
