Are moisture chamber glasses effective?

In a study of 110 patients with complaints of dry eye symptoms, including dry eye sufferers, long term contact lens wearers and post-LASIK patients, 7eye moisture chamber glasses provided significant relief.

The following statistics were determined by patient self-ratings:

  • Reported Dry Eye symptoms decreased by more than half (57% on average)
  • 30% of patients reported complete elimination of overall symptoms
  • 95% reported improved comfort when driving with 7eye glasses
  • 99% reported a decrease in their overall dry eye symptoms
  • A separate study conducted by the Cornea Research Foundation of American found that wearing 7eye glasses alleviated the dry eye symptoms of post-LASIK patients.
