Snow goggles (Inuktitut; ilgaak, syllabics; ᐃᓪᒑᒃ; Kivalliq dialect: iggaak ᐃᒡᒑᒃ; North Baffin dialect are a type of eyewear traditionally used by the Inuit people of the Arctic to prevent snow blindness. The goggles are traditionally made of a piece of bone or ivory pierced with slits but new ones may be made with wood.
