RAYMOND P. JACOBS STANLEY M. WINABSKI, OF STEVENS POINT, WISCONSIN.
Application filed Kay 21,
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that we, RAYMOND P. Jxooss and STANLEY M. WINARSKI, citizens of the United States, residing at Stevens Point, in the county of Portage and State of Wisconsin, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Motorists Goggles; and we do declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the invention, such aswill enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same.
Our invention relates to improvements in eye shields or goggles to prevent the blinding of motorists by approaching headlights and the object of the invention is to provide" an extremely simple and inexpensive, yet an eflicient an easily operated device for obtainin the desired results.
Wit] the foregoing in view, the invention resides in the. novel subject matter hereinafter described and claimed,- the description being supplemented by the accompanying drawing.
Figure 1 is a front elevationcf an eye shield constructed in accordance with our invention.
Figure 2 is a vertical transverse sectional view on line 2 -2 of Fig. 1.
Figure 3 is an elevation showing a different'form of construction.
Figure 4 is a transverse sectional view on line 4-4 of Fig. 3.
In the form of construction selected for illustration in the present application, we provide a pair of open frames 1 connected by a nose bridge 2 for disposition in front of the users eyes, any suitable means such as the usual side wires or temples 3, being employed for securing the frames and bridge in lace.
xtending forward] from each of the frames 1 is a shield 4 which extends throughout approximately half the circumference of the frames and is located either above or below a horizontal plane intersecting the frame axis. The front ends of the shields 4 terminate in a common vertical plane at substantially right angles to the aforementioned axis and we have shown the front corners of each of said shields connected by a horizontal bar 5.
Carried by the front end of each shield at, is a pair of horizontally spaced vertically disposed panels 6 formed of any desired 1928. Serial No. 840,578.
view opening 7 between tiem.
The panels 6 may be secured in place in any desired manner, but we prefer to bend the front ends of the shields 4 into channelshaped formation as indicated M8 and to similarly bend the bars 5, the edges of the panels being held in the channels.
By employing the construction shown, it will be seen that when glaring headlights a proach, the user of the invention need 0 y turn his head slightl to cause certain of the panels 6 to cast sha ows upon the pupils of his eyes, thus shieldin them and rmitting clear vision through t eopenings If desired, the frames 1 may be provided with guides 9 on their inner ends to ad'ustably receive extensions 10 on the ends 0 the nose bridge 2,.set screws or the like 11 being provided to hold said uides and extensions in adjusted position. 'Fhis arrangement will rmit adjustment of theframes toward and row each other, awording to the distance between the users eyes.
As excellent results have been obtained I from the details disclosed, these details may be followed if desired, but it is to be understood that within the scope of the invention as claimed, numerous changes in form, proportion and details, ma be made. For mstance, the panels 6 11 not be in truly vertical planes, but may incline if desided. Furthermore, the may be slightly oblique to the eye axes when viewed from above, if found desirable.
' We claim:

An eye-shield comprising a pair of open frames connected by a nose brid curved shields extending forwardly rom said frames and disposed below a medial horizonemme tielly intersecting mid axes, leevin en enopening channels receiving edge portions-e1? w tirely unobstructed clear vision fie cl ebove said panels, and e pair of horizemel liens said panels. connectin the front eomers of seid shields 2.
