Minimizes eye injuries to the Soldier during training and deployment. Provides protection from fragmentation, ultraviolet light. laser threats/hazards, wind, sand and other potential eye hazards.
The Military Combat Eye Protection (MCEP) ensure Soldiers are visually able to carry out their mission. Eye hazards exist in a variety of forms in both combat and training environments. They range from fragmenting muntions and other airborne debris, to invisible hazards such as ultraviolet (UV) radiation. If unprotected, Soldiers are susceptible to short- or long-term effects on their vision, which in turn can compromise current and future mission effectiveness. MCEP helps preserve perfomance in both combat and training by reducing the risks associated with exposure to such hazards.
