French term or phrase:lunettes de WC
Still on my ski document, my search engine makes me think that these are corrective ski glasses but I am not sure. I would appreciate any suggestions
I want to thank everyone for their contribution. Finally after all my technical research, this is the correct translation, I went back to the company and asked.

Ben voilà, fallait le dire dès le début, ça aurait évité bien des discussions: pour l'inévitable (et peut-être intraduisible) jeux de mots, moi, j'ai rien à suggérer, franchement. Lunettes (de W.C.) et lunettes (pour voir).
What sort of tone is the text? If it was a jokey article about skiing then toilet seats (or the lack of them!) in mountain restaurants might certainly feature. In a technical article it would be less likely! Certainly what came to my mind....
Explanation: Looking at a few sites re ski chalet rental, these seem to be supplied in the bathroom/WC and are to be worn when cleaning the toilet, putting bleach down the toilet. That is what I have found in any case!
