Luminous Goggles could provide an easier way to view the new Caves without resorting to torch spam, but still keep the challenge that they will bring. They would be made with Copper (for connection), Amethyst Shards (for the glass) and Glow Sacs (for the night vision), with two sides having to be made and then connected together in a crafting table. All three ingredients could use a few more recipes, and this is a great way to tie them in with the core idea of the update.
The Googles would be worn in the helmet spot and would allow the player to see in the dark roughly 20 blocks around them, with the light level being 15 next to the player, and gradually dimming as it gets further away from them. There could be an Enchantment that allows for this radius to be increased (i.e., I - 30 Blocks, II - 40 Blocks, III - 50 Blocks), and and Enchantment for it to be used underwater, as well as it being able to be Enchanted with Mending and Unbreaking.
The Goggles would provide a more permanent solution to the lighting issues of the Caves and Cliffs update, and wouldn't ruin the ambience of the surroundings like Night Vision potions do. Theoretically they could be useless, but they would hopefully be a lot more permanent and mainstream than potions.
