On an old episode of “Mythbusters,” hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman put eye black to the test to see if it really worked. Through a series of tests, the two learned that traditional eye back does not eliminate glare for the person wearing it, although it did slightly help athletes differentiate between light and dark.
The conclusion came down to this: Eye black works a little, but doesn’t nearly have the benefits as expected. The reality is if you want to make it easier to play sports on a sunny day, your best bet is a good pair of sunglasses.
This is especially true for children, but it can be difficult to find glasses in their size.

Check out this video from the New England Sports Network that explains why many members of the Boston Red Sox wear fancy sunglasses during the game.
