For the similarly named medical device used by the blind, please see VISOR.

A visor, also known as an eyeshade, was a type of transparent surface that protected the eyes.

A specially designed visor was used to shield the eyes of humanoids who may look upon Medusans in order to prevent the insanity that would otherwise result from their hideous appearance. It proved to be especially effective for Vulcans such as Commander Spock. (TOS: "Is There in Truth No Beauty?")

The Troglyte miners on Ardana also wore special visors for unknown reasons that could be related to their harsh work environment in the Zenite mines. (TOS: "The Cloud Minders")

Certain poker players wore transparent eyeshades. Lieutenant Commander Data regularly wore one of these during his poker games with the senior staff of the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Cause and Effect", "Descent", "All Good Things...")
