To address the needs of people with various visual impairments (such as light sensitivity), we offer a full range of Cocoons featuring special absorptive filters developed specifically for Low Vision applications. We strongly recommend that you consult your eye care professional or physician when selecting the Low Vision UV absorptive filter that will best suit your particular eye condition or visual impairment.


Low Vision Cocoons feature specially formulated absorptive filters that are available in four specific tints and are proven to increase visual acuity when used in conjunction with various types of vision related impairments. Each of the patented frame sizes/styles are designed to comfortably and securely fit over prescription glasses, but can also be worn equally as well on their own.

Printable Sizing Guide - Read Sizing Instructions Carefully
1. The printable sizing guide is in Adobe PDF format. You will need Adobe Reader or an equivalent software to view the document. Click
HERE to access the Adobe website and download Adobe Reader for free if you encounter problems opening the file.
2. The sizing guide MUST be printed at 100% actual size, or it will not provide an accurate recommendation of the size that will fit over your glasses. It is important to set your print preferences with the scaling option turned off. This will ensure that the document prints at full size. Use the image of the coin on the sizing guide to verify it printed at 100%. The image should be the same size as an actual US quarter or should measure 24 mm in diameter if you do not have a coin to compare.
3. Hold your glasses face down on the full scale images of each Cocoons sunglass size. If your glasses fit inside the red guidelines, then you can wear that size. If the width or height of your glasses extends outside of the red box, then you will need to try the next larger size.
Maximize comfort with adjustable temples
Flex2Fit® Temples
Cocoons adjustable Flex2Fit temples are designed for quick and easy manual adjustment of the shape and curvature of the ear pieces.  This unique feature allows each wearer to achieve an exact fit that is secure and comfortable during extended wear.  Click here for detailed fitting instructions.

360° of Protection
It is important that a sunglass provides protection from all angles, not just the front.  Standard sunglasses can allow up to 40% more unfiltered light to reach the eyes because they do not provide protection from the top, bottom and sides.  Cocoons patented frame designs block damaging UV light and glare from all angles (top, bottom and sides), completely isolating the eyes in a cocoon of filtered light.   Click here for 3D demonstration.
Maximum Comfort and Durability
Cocoons frames are constructed from Ballistic Nylon™ and feature a supple soft touch finish for the ultimate combination of durability and comfort.  Low Vision Cocoons are available in black frames only.
