Dry eyes or excessively watering eyes are a common symptom of facial palsy due to the condition affecting the ability of one or your eyes to close or to blink.
In some cases, facial palsy damages the trigeminal nerve and will therefore also affect tear production.
Moisture chamber glasses give relief and protection
Wearing moisture chamber glasses can be an effective way to provide relief from dry eye symptoms associated with facial palsy.
They wrap around your eyes like goggles, helping to retain moisture and protecting your eyes from irritants.
Moisture chamber glasses have the advantage of being an affordable, non-invasive, drug free way to provide relief for dry eyes. You can wear them at home, at work, or when participating in sports.
Because of the reduced ability of your eye(s) to lubricate themselves naturally, these protective glasses play an important protective role in keeping dust and grit which could otherwise trigger eye infections.
A wide range of stylish modern frame designs is available through specialist company Eyewear Accessores Ltd, including models suitable for work, leisure, and sport. The glasses are available with clear, tinted, light-reactive, or prescription lenses.
We also have moisture chamber glasses designed specifically for sleeping in. Wearing our moisture chamber sleep goggles means that your eyes feel more comfortable throughout the night and you don't wake up with dry, painful eyes.
