Allowed via medical waiver

"Tinted eye shields may be worn only after the League office is supplied with appropriate medical documentation and approval is subsequently granted. The League office has final approval."

They are legal in high school and college with a medical waiver.

But you have to provide the proper papers ........ You get to wear a German Helmet on Laugh In when asking that question.

Too old, too old ......

I don't know about NCAA, but they're illegal under NFHS, even with a note from your mother.

No medical waiver possible in NCAA any more.

"Eye shields. Eye shields must be clear, not tinted, and made from molded or rigid material. Eyeglasses and goggles also must be clear and not tinted. No medical exceptions are allowed."
