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:
- Keeping out wind, drafts and dust/particles.
- Raising humidity in the space around the eyes.
- 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 Derby?
Styling and fit, and bendable arms. Derby is a larger style frame with wide rectangular lenses. The bendable arms help with customizing the fit and keeping the shield as close to the face as possible.
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.

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.
