    About 7eye AirShield Viento

    • Fits small - medium faces (smallest frame)
    • Removable foam eye cup
    • 100% UVA/UVB protection
    • Rx ready
    • Available with clear or tinted lenses

    Description (Rebecca's)

    7Eye AirShields, also known as Panoptx, are a longtime staple of the severe dry eye world to control symptoms, keep comfortable and maintain an active lifestyle. 

    The claim-to-fame of AirShield frames is the removable deep foam eye cup, which fills the gap between the frame and your face. 

    The shield has a threefold benefit for people with dry eye: 

    1. Keeping out wind, drafts and dust/particles.
    2. Raising humidity in the space around the eyes.
    3. Blocking peripheral light (useful for people who have severe light sensitivity).

    Outdoors, AirShields are invaluable for keeping comfortable, whether your issue is wind sensitivity, light sensitivity or both. The right well-fitting sealed eyewear can make all the difference to being able to continue doing the things you love to do.

    Indoors, many people with severe symptoms also use AirShields (or, if not, then Ziena Eyewear, incidentally made by the same company) for the humidity factor, especially for computer use.

    What's different about Viento

    First, it's the smallest in the series, making it a popular framestyle for women (along with the roomier Briza). Second, unlike some of the other frames in this series, it does not have the bendable arms. 

    Alternative products to consider

    WileyX Climate Control series follows the same concept of a removable foam seal. Their foam eye cups are differently constructed, and for some frames they have two different thicknesses available for the gasket. The smallest WileyX frame is the AirRage.

    Benefits

    • Fits Small - Medium Faces (smallest frame)
    • AirShield® Wind Blocking Foam Eyecup 
    • Straight Back Temples
    • 100% UVA+UVB Sun Protection
    • Shatter Resistant Lense

    Frame Size

    Fits Small to Medium

    To find the right size and fit, it is important to consider the curvature of your eyebrow bone & cheek bone. The various facial anatomies are the main factors to be considered on how the eyecup will work to offer a complete seal around the orbit of your eyes. Traditional sizing or fitting of a fashion frame does not necessarily pertain.

    Pretty but poor fit

    I was very disappointed the sunglasses did not fit my normal but small face at all. The nosepiece did not sit on my nose and there were gaps all the way around where the padding was supposed to limit air flow. I was sad because they were really attractive sunglasses, best ive seen. Unfortunately i had to return them.

    Hi there,
    Thank you for the review. Sorry the glasses didn't fit. The options are very limited when it comes to small sizes for glasses in this category. The WileyX Air Rage is the smallest I know of.
    Kind regards
    Rebecca

    Quality good. Fit not so much.

    I like the look of the glasses. I bought for a small face because I have a small face but they do not fit great. The top of eyes are not well shielded. But the glasses fit nice and snug on the sides and bottom. Unfortunately the foam leaves black marks on my face. Hopefully that will fade with time.

    A big help for dry eye

    These glasses are a tremendous help to me. The lens is dark & doesn’t have any glare. My eyes feel so much better with them on. They offer a lot of protection from the wind. My only complaint is that the fit isn’t adjustable. There is a gap at the that can’t be closed. They still work well for me.
