Google epee masks.

I've seen the old ones, but I have never seen one like I just saw just now. I am betting it is the same principle as stage illusionists/magicians who blindfold themselves but can still see what they want to. Point is, there was a lot of science going into creating the modern mask for that sport. 

I just found it neat and interesting that you could basically give the illusion you cant see anything, but in reality you can. I do understand the tactic of masking one's face though. I know from watching the NFL since childhood, the announcers would constantly point out that the defense would read the eyes/face of the offence and react to that.
