"Modesty Glasses" for Haredi Men?

Okay, I know The New York Daily News is not exactly the greatest source (though after the performance of The New York Post last week, which seemed toi be reporting some alternate universe, it seems downright respectable), but it has a story on what it claims is a new product for haredi or ultra-Orthodox men in Israel: "modesty glasses" that blur their vision so they will not inadvertently have to look at women.

How do they keep from walking in front of buses?
