A TTOR/VEYS lat JS CHARLES FULTONIMEVAY, 01E ATLANTIC CITY, NEW JERSEY.

non-eta nEvicE Eon THE EYEs.

meaara. i

To all whom it may concern Be it known that l, JAMES C. F. MEVAr,

a citizen of the United States, and a resi adecting the eyes.

The invention has for its general objects to provide a device of the character referred to which is comparatively simple and inexpensive to manufacture,'- .of light yet durable construction, and so designedthat the glare from immediate objects or surfaces will not enter the eyes. v

A. more specific object of theiinvention is the provision of opaque protectorsof conical or other desired form which are worn over the eyes'after the fashion of eye-glasses or spectacles with or without lenses, and the protectors having small apertures located considerablyin advance of the eyes, whereby glare from immediate, as well as more remote, ob ects is prevented from entering the eyes and producing the ill edectswell known from sunlight glare, the apertures of the protectors being of any desired shape or location to suit requirements.

A further object of the invention is the provision of protectors which. are hingedly mounted at their top portions so that they can be thrown upwardly and forwardly from in front of the eyes, thereby to serve as sunshades, and according to one embodiment of parts which will be set forth with particularity in the following description and claims appended hereto.

Tu the accompanying drawing, which illustrates certain embodiments of the invention and wherein similar characters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the views, Figure l is a front view of a pair of protectors or non-glaring devices applied to eye-gla; Fig. 2 is a sectional view on the line 22, Fig. l, of the protector; Fig. 3 is a rear perspective view of the protector; Fig. 4 is a sectional view of a modified form-of aperture-varying means; and Fig. 5 is a front view'of the device constructed to be used without lenses.

Referring to the drawing, A. designates the eye protectors which may be applied to eye-glasses B or spectacles, or they may be used without lenses, in which case the devices are suitably connected together by a bridge-piece l, as shown in Fig. 5, there being suitable means, such as nose clamps '2 or the equivalent for holding the protecting devices A in front of the eyes.

Specification of Letters Patent. Paflggnflj gfll Drag, 11d, jlgflfi Application filed. a ril a, raw. Serial no. 19,189.

, According to the construction shown in Figs. 1 to a, the protecting devices A are provided with clips or hook-shaped lugs 3 and d to engage the lenses of the eye-glasses at the top and bottom, and if desired ahinge 5. is provided between the upper hook and each protector so that the latter can be thrown upwardly to occupy a horizontal position and thus serve as a sunshade.

' The protectors may be made of sheet metal or any other suitable material and each is so shaped as to have a forwardly-projecting tubular portion 6 of small cross-section, whereby a light-admitting aperture is formed considerably in front of the eyes, such location ofthe light-admitting aperture being'important because the glare from immediate objects or surfaces is prevented from entering the eye, although the vision of 'more or less remote-objects is not impaired. The shapeor contour of the base portion 7 of the protector is immaterial, ex-

cept that it belarge enough to cover the eye and prevent glare from striking the latter.

The size and shape of the light-admitting aperture may be varied by. the use of plugs 8 or caps 9 applied to the forward extremity of the tubular portion 6, and these apertures til may-be central, paracentral or peripheral, as

desired.

From the foregoing description taken in 1 connection with ,the accompanying drawing,

the advantages of the construction and method of operation will be readily understood by those skilled in the art to which the invention appertains, and while I have described the principle of operation, together with the device which I now consider to be the best embodiment thereof, I desire to have it understood that the device shown ismerely illustrative and that such changes may be made when desired as fall within the scope of the appended claims.

The usual annoyance from moving picture flicker is overcome by the use of this device.

Having thus described my invention, I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent: &

1. Eye-protecting devices comprising protectors for covering the eyes and each having a forwardly extending tubular portion terminating in a light-admitting opening of 2. Eye-protecting devices comprising protectors for covering the eyes and each having a forwardly extending tubular portion terminating in a light-admitting opening of small diameter, a supporting structure, and hinges between the tops of the protectors and supporting structure whereby the protectors can be thrown upwardly to serve as sunshades.

In testimony whereof Ihave signed my name to this specification in the presence of two subscribing witnesses.

JAMES CHARLES FULTON MEVAY. Witnesses: L. H. MARVEL, H. A. DEVINE.
