Product name for a MR type aftermarket replacement for the Internal Visor of several makes of motorcycle helmets. Transparent Quantum Dot Film, Wireless Data + Power. About as much as I can safetly say.

As with most product names precise accuracy can result in the rights to the name not being awarded. However, authenticity to begin with is always best.

We'd say "the dragon's eyes" = súile an dragain

Thirded.

I wasn't familiar with the variant dragan, I've only ever used dragún. But dragan is probably a better option given that dragún can also mean 'dragoon'.

I had originally gone with An Súile Dragan
Dragon Eyes instead of Dragon's Eyes. I kind of still prefer Dragon over Dragon's the possessive.

An Súile Dragain is incorrect--the definite article is in the wrong position.

Súile an Dragain 'the dragon's eyes'

Súile Dragain 'a dragon's eyes'/ 'dragon eyes'
