Referring to the accompanying drawings wherein similar reference characters designate similar parts throughout the improved eye protector is designed to extend substantially horizontally and'transversely across the .face about one-half inch below the center of the eyes. The protector is formed of a sheet' of material 10 which may be of metal, celluloid, or similar material, having a nose receiving notch 11' formed therein. Suitable ear engaging members 19 are pivoted to the ends of the sheet of material 10, which ear engaging members aresimilar in form and in construction to the ear pieces of eye glasses or spectacles. g
A suitable padding 13 is glued or otherwise. secured to the under side of the sheet of material 10. Thispadding may be formed of cotton batting, or similar material, and
