Goggles specifically made for bicyclists by various manufacturers and accessory distributors were evaluated. A number of new lightweight, comfortable goggles have come on the market. This eyewear usually has a wraparound design (to cover the eye on all sides) and is made with plastic polycarbonate lenses. Goggles provide three-fold protection: (1) they act as a shield from dust, debris and pollutants; (2) they prevent the "dry-eye" syndrome; and (3) they block out harmful rays. Among those goggles evaluated in this article are: Perception Lenses by Suntiger; Corning Optics "spectrally selective" lenses; Cyclops goggles from Cycling Sports; SolarBand by National Hydron Incorporated; and Gargoyles by Pro-tec Incorporated.
