Hello, my name is John Waddington. Together with my wife Alison, I founded Eyewear Accessories 12 years ago and we have run it ever since.
Our aim from the outset has been simple. We want to help people suffering from conditions such as dry eye syndrome and photophobia to find protective glasses and sunglasses that will help relieve their symptoms.
The reason that I started our company was because I was suffering myself from dry eyes and was seeking a more effective and convenient self-help way of managing my symptoms than hourly application of eye drops.
I wear my Ziena glasses for extended periods each day and I find they help to keep my eyes more comfortable and moisturised.
In particular I find that they help when I am using my PC, when I am sitting outdoors or gardening in the warm sunshine, when it's windy, when I’m cycling, and when the heating or air conditioning is on.
I have had varifocal light-reactive prescription lenses fitted into my glasses and over the years have had this done to three different 7eye AirShield products and two Ziena glasses. I have also “road-tested” all the products we sell.
Eyewear Accessories has a unique perspective among worldwide retailers of dry eye glasses
As far as I know the fact that I am a dry eye sufferer myself and have extensive experience of wearing 7eye and Ziena glasses daily gives me a unique perspective that differentiates Eyewear Accessories from other retailers of protective glasses.
My experience of using Ziena and 7eye glasses regularly over a long period has given me a good understanding of the ways in which moisture chamber glasses can help to manage dry eye symptoms.
I go out of my way to give customers the advice and support they need
Because these glasses have helped me, I am strongly motivated by a drive to help our customers improve their own quality of life through wearing them.
That's why I will go out of my way to give customers the advice and support they need to choose glasses that will really help them.
Sometimes it's just by answering a specific question promptly so the buyer can make an informed decision. In other cases, customers need more support in choosing and using the glasses and that’s okay too.
I treat every customer as an individual
I treat every customer as an individual and my personal objective is to support you in finding the correct glasses for you and supporting you afterwards if you need spares or repairs.
I have every confidence that our moisture chamber glasses will help to relieve your dry eye condition - it's just a question of finding the model which fits you really well, providing a good orbital seal around your eye sockets.
