    About 7eye AirShield Briza

    • 100% UVA/UVB protection
    • Rx ready

    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 special about the Briza?

    Styling and fit. Briza is a roomy frame but designed with women in mind, and is one of the few available in something other than black. The sunset tortoise is quite attractive.

    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. 

    Description (Manufacturer's)


    • AirShield® Wind Blocking Foam Eyecup
    • Fits medium/large faces
    • 100% UVA/UVB protection + distortion-free clarity
    • ANSI Z87.1 safety compliant
    • Shatter Resistant Lenses

    Frame Size

    Fits Medium to Large

    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.

    Very Disappointed

    I expected very high quality lenses for the price tag…and I am very disgruntled with my vision clarity (wearing scleral lenses under these glasses). I have found much better quality lenses in sunglasses for a third of total price paid.

    The wrap fit is okay..but not snug. The foam liner pops out too easily IMO.

    I’m really dissatisfied with my purchase!

    Hi Anne,

    Very sorry to hear this. Please reach out to us if you have questions or concerns to resolve.

    It's difficult of course to gauge from pictures whether a frame of this type will fit, without trying it on. We do have a return policy (glasses must be unused to be eligible) because we know people need to be able to try them on to determine if they will work for them. We are also happy to refer customers to other sources such as local optical shops where they can try things on before purchasing.

    I was surprised to hear what you said about the lens quality, and the eye cup coming loose. That sounds like a potential manufacturer warranty issue. The manufacturer of this product is 7Eye (see 7eye.com) and they have excellent customer service if you would like to speak with them about it.

    Kind regards
