"I would like to share this because I've been suffering with my eyes for nearly 3 years. I went to 5 professors and even hospital and all they gave me is steroids and all the other ointments you can find at the pharmacy, including pills. I get really dry eyes as I work in catering with AC and all the other fans of the fridges. Then a lady came in the shop and saw me suffering with my itchy, dry, red eyes and recommended me these glasses. I bought the Ventus glasses with the clear lenses that same day and since I received them, I keep them on the whole day till I go to sleep.I bought also extra cups for them and am definitely going to buy another pair. Thank you for saving my eyes."

*************

"For the first time in some years I am able to walk outside in the winter without tears streaming down my cheeks. The relief is enormous; the constant mopping was horrible, any make up was wiped off and my eyes always felt sore and  dry when I got back home.  My Ziena Verona glasses have overcome all of that and I am extremely grateful.

I have, over the years, asked for help from professionals and have been only give drops which didn't help at all but they certainly had no clue that there was such a simple cure available. Thank goodness I finally tracked you down online!"

*************

"I am absolutely delighted with the Cape glasses. They really work well for my blepharitis, and dry eye. At last my annoying problem has been solved. I'm very grateful for your help and advice, and once my prescription is fitted I'm really looking forward to wearing them."

*************

"Last year half of my face became paralysed due to a head and neck cancer and no longer moves, including my left eyelid. I bought a pair of your Airshield glasses last year as the slightest draft or breeze caused great discomfort in that eye. I had prescription lenses fitted to the glasses by Ciliary Blue. I couldn’t be more happy with them! In fact, my life would have been much more restricted without them. I wear them almost all the time when I am outside, and I also find them very helpful indoors where there are drafts from air conditioning." - click here to see full feedback from this customer

"Thank you so much for making 7eye AirShield glasses available in the UK. Following treatment for cancer which affected my tear production, I have found the 7eye glasses that I bought from Eyewear Accessories to be invaluable for keeping out the wind and protecting my eyes."

*************

"I was delighted to come across your website by accident last year when I was diagnosed with dry eye and blepharitis.

With treatment and the AirShield glasses both conditions are now completely under control. I certainly will not be buying any more so called ‘designer' sunglasses from the high street!

The frame shape of your glasses is superb with or without the inlay (so useful when the weather is very windy or the sun low and strong) and the photochromatic will be ideal on holidays."

*************

"I find the glasses very helpful for using when I am driving and when outside.

I have severe dry eye, with punctual plugs in my lower ducts, yet find they provide sufficient protection, without clouding up. I use the glasses on a daily basis and feel they contribute a lot of my overall comfort.

I am happy with the buy and feel that they allow me to continue with normal activities without my eyes becoming a noticeable problem. I would be happy for my feedback to be used and to be kept up to date with any new options."

*************

This pair of glasses (Ziena Verona) has given me tremendous relief from the discomforts I used to experience in my eyes from hay fever and dryness. Thank you for your excellent service.

*************

"Just to say how highly delighted I am with my new prescription cycling goggles (7eye Cape). Had my first trip out with them on Wednesday and they exceeded my expectations. No streaming eyes, no bits of dust in the eyes and pin sharp vision."

*************

"These (7eye Ventus) are great. I bought them for motorcyling as I was getting sore eyes after a ride. The arms fit nicely into my helmet and they are infinitely better at keeping the wind out than ordinary glasses.

The bonus is that with the insert removed they're also a cracking pair of sunglasses for any other occasion."

*************

"My son had a very bad accident a year ago, which has left him with a significantly damaged right eye and a left eye which is unable to blink or close automatically. The sight in the left eye is still good, so needless to say, protecting that eye has become of paramount importance.

We have been using the 7eye glasses for the last 6 months or so and they have proved to be incredibly helpful in protecting his eye from wind, dust etc whenever he is outside. He uses them wherever he goes, including for activities such as running and playing football and the glasses have kept his eye very well protected.

I highly recommend them."

*************

"I bought these glasses for my daughter who suffers with very dry eyes. She has been prescribed various dry eye treatments including several different types of eye drops and nothing really worked. The 7eye glasses have truly been the only thing that has really helped."

*************

“I am 25 years old and already have severe dry eye which has changed my life so I am unable to go to hot countries, go out in summer or even read or drive for long periods of time. 

I have tried eyedrops, hot compresses, punctual plugs, fish oils and lipiflow all with very limited success. Only one product has made a significant difference to my symptoms and that is these goggles (7eye Cape). 

The seal around the eyes creates a moisture chamber which retains any lubrication that the eyes may be producing. This improves symptoms DRAMATICALLY. 

I did a timed blink test to see how long I could keep my eyes open with and without the goggles. 

Without the goggles I timed 9 seconds. With them timed 20 seconds! This is because of the moisture retention created by the goggles. This makes it much easier to read, drive and do other daily tasks. 

They protect almost 100% against wind which means I can walk and even play sports outside where it would be impossible before. 

With the tinted lenses I can now go outside in the sunshine whereas without them I can not look even straight ahead or upwards. In bright sunshine my eyes would close my themselves without the goggles and now I can keep them open. 

In terms of appearance when bought with tinted lenses they look like normal sunglasses.

In conclusion, Cape goggles (or another model) are THE vital tool in the battle against dry eye syndrome. I recommend them to anyone with the condition to relieve symptoms with the utmost urgency.”

*************

"The 7eye Briza glasses have been invaluable whilst I was finishing the South West Coast Path in September. I use them every day but with continuous walking for many days they helped to make my wonderful experience even better and certainly more comfortable. I recommend their use to anyone suffering from dry eye (a strange description as my eyes water all the time when I don't wear the Briza)."

*************

"I would like to share some of my experiences after having tested three pairs of Moisture chamber spectacles from Eyewear Accessories.

Since I have to use eye drops extremely frequently, it is quite a big practical problem for me to live an ordinary life by using eye drops alone. According to my eye doctor (specialized in dry eye problems) such a frequent dropping is seriously threatening the microbiological balance / health on the surface of the eyes. 

By using these goggles I have been able to reduce my eye drop frequency by more than 50%.

I think it would be great if this information could make life easier for other people in my situation. Because it doesn't seem to be a common knowledge even among the eye doctors I have been to."

I am very pleased with the 7eye Cape glasses. They really do prevent the constant eye watering that's been such a pain for so long, and they're very comfortable. I can now really enjoy walking and running without the tears!

*************

I am extremely pleased with my 7eye Briza sunglasses that I purchased in the Spring. They have changed my quality of life and meant that I can again enjoy long walks in extremely windy weather as well as warm sunny days with a high pollen count. I can thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking for eye protection and have just purchased a spare pair for myself, as I would be lost without them.
*************

"I purchased the 7eye Viento glasses a while ago and am so pleased that I did. They have a modern look but really block out the wind and glare very well. Also the service given by John has always been 100% and his attention to detail was gratefully received throughout the purchase and post purchase as well."

*************

“I had been struggling with 'dry eye' and blepharitis for many months, to the extent that I was no longer able to leave home, due to the extreme sensitivity of my eye condition, which was triggered by wind and hay fever.

I was about to lose my job as I work  in an air conditioned environment and it was proving to be impossible to manage, until I discovered 7eye Cape moisture chamber glasses.  They have truly transformed my life!  I am back at work, and I am able to be out when it's windy or wet or if the pollen count is high.  My eyes are completely protected and I need worry no longer that they will react and become sore.

I find them extremely comfortable and the many customers I meet in the retail environment really like the look of them.

Thank you Eyewear Accessories for giving me my life back!”

*************

"I just wanted to let you know how amazing they are (7eye Ventus). I got to the top of a mountain without holding my eye shut and it was really windy. I have searched for ages for glasses like these. So thanks for selling them in the uk. I will let the facial palsy centre know about them and the great service I received."

*************

"Thank you for supplying me the 7eye Ventus. It has given me my freedom back on the bike. For the first time in 4 months I can cycle without my right eye taped shut."

*************

"I would like to let you know how delighted I am with my sunglasses that you recommended (7eye Cape with polarised lenses). I did not have any problems with my eyes on my sailing holiday in Greece and this made a huge impact on my enjoyment as in previous years I have been badly affected by the sun and wind. Thank you so much and I am very glad that I spoke to you and took your advice on which pair to buy as they definitely did the job."

*************

Just wanted to say a big thank you. My glasses arrived today (I ordered them yesterday!) and are fab. Now I can go outside in the wind and enjoy walking and cycling again without my eyes suffering - they feel like a big hug! :) Thank you.

"I ordered the 7eye Cape for my dad and he has (for the first time in 9 years!) been able to go the park with my daughter without coming back with painful, red and irritable eyes. It went so well that he managed to teach her to ride her bike."

*************

"As a dry eye sufferer I would like to tell others I highly recommend these specialist glasses and the extremely helpful expertise of the owner in making my choice. I have two pairs of the 7eye Cape model - clear and polarized - and the unique moisture gaskets have made a significant difference to the comfort of my eyes enabling me to enjoy being outdoors without the usual adverse effects."

*************

"Tried out the 7eye Ventus glasses today in a Yorkshire gale. What a fantastic product. No tears, no pollen. Brilliant. I will be recommending them to my golfing colleagues."

*************

"Really pleased with my glasses (Ziena Verona) and your service. Thank you."

*************

“My wife and I purchased two pairs of glasses – a 7eye Briza for my wife because she suffers from dry eyes, and a 7eye Cape for me as I wanted to cut out as much light coming in from the top and sides as possible. We are both registered blind with a small amount of vision as we both have Retinitis Pigmentosa and have found we have both gained a dual benefit from wearing these glasses.

*************

For my wife they not only helped her dry eye condition but she found that with the gaskets cutting out more light she could focus better. From my perspective not only did they cut out the glare from the top and sides that bothered me so much but I realised I must have been suffering with dry eyes, as my eyes are more relaxed and felt more moist in the corners after wearing the Cape glasses.

*************

I've even found that now that the colder weather is here and the heating is on my eyes would feel very sleepy and slightly crusty in the mornings so I tried wearing the Cape glasses while indoors for an hour or so and it has virtually stopped my eyes feeling like this in the mornings. We found John at Eyewear Accessories to be extremely helpful. He goes "that extra mile" to make sure you get the glasses that will work the best for you. We're very pleased we found his website.

*************

“Following diagnosis of Dry Eye Syndrome, I spoke to numerous opticians trying to find some glasses that would help my condition. Luckily on the internet I found Eyewear Accessories. John and his team offered me an excellent, professional and caring service. He supplied me with two pairs of glasses that have greatly improved my eyes.”

*************

“These protective glasses were invaluable on my recent holiday to Fuerteventura. I had recently had a corneal operation and had been worried about the sand and dust from the dry winds getting into my eyes and making them inflamed. Wearing the 7eye sunglasses proved a lifeline - I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

*************

“My new Briza glasses are fantastic. The East coast wind has been its usual brisk self and normally I would have blurred vision and sore eyes after the first hour. Day three and all is well.”

*************

“Following an operation for Glaucoma, I was experiencing considerable pain in my eye when out walking on windy days or in air conditioned rooms however the 7 Eye glasses that I purchased from Eyewear Accessories have totally resolved the problem.”

*************

“Thank you for the rapid dispatch of my order. For years my daily walk has been a bit of an endurance test because of watering eyes. Some years ago I had an operation to cure the problem but it didn't work - your glasses did! All the way round today without a single drop and it is a cold and windy day. I am so pleased with the glasses that I am going to order another pair with clear lenses. Thanks again for your good service and excellent product.”

*************

“My daughter is very pleased with the eye glasses. They are a wonderful help for dry eye and make outdoor activities possible.”

*************

“I returned two days ago after trekking in and out of the Grand Canyon. Extreme conditions, dry and windy, the 7eye glasses performed brilliantly. I also used them while fishing and again they worked well. Anyway, all in all a great concept. I am happy to recommend them to my 'dry eyed friends.”

*************

“I am delighted with the comfort and relief gained through wearing your dry eye syndrome glasses. Brilliant, magical, thank you!”

*************

Wearing the 7eye glasses, my eyes were totally protected and not once did I have any tears or irritation from the wind. My vision was perfect and my enjoyment of golf was renewed by the comfort of the glasses. I certainly am very happy and thank you again for all the help and first class service you gave me.”

*************

“Many thanks for your help and advice in selecting my glasses. The whole transaction was so speedy and Ciliary Blue glazed them and sent back by return. I love the glasses which protect my eyes from wind even without the padded insert.”

*************

"Having suffered with Dry Eye syndrome for 4 years and tried all the usual drops, gels, etc without any prolonged relief I am delighted to endorse 7eye AirShield glasses. The relief was instantaneous and at last I can experience the outdoors again without the usual watery misery. A fantastic product and an excellent personal service."

*************

“Brilliant service and product. Following a viral infection, one of my eyes became sore and inflamed by the wind, which was seriously impacting on my  enjoyment of the outdoors. Wearing these glasses with the gasket keeps my eye moist and protected and has brought long walks back on the agenda.”

*************

“I have bought a second pair with prescription adapter for driving, computer work, and reading and would recommend them to anyone suffering with dry eyes.”

*************

“I am very grateful for your advice and congratulate you on your excellent service.”

*************

“I bought these glasses for my wife and she is extremely pleased with their function against wind, pollen, etc, which had made visits to the outdoors most unpleasant until now. Many thanks to you for a fine product along with great service!”

*************

“Thanks for your excellent advice. The dry eye glasses are a perfect fit and have put the pleasure back into cycling. Tested yesterday in a strong headwind - super.”

*************

“Look like normal specs and are very appropriate for my dry eye syndrome. The clear lenses are good for darker weather and night time.”

*************

“At last I can go for long country walks and, even better, play tennis outdoors in winter without constantly wiping tears from my eyes. Your helpful and efficient service was much appreciated.”

*************

“I have been out walking in the sun and wind and the sunglasses are very good. Thank you for your help and speedy and efficient service.”

*************

"A big thank you to John for his patience and valuable help on the phone. He helped me choose the perfect solution for my eye problems. The 7eye Briza glasses arrived speedily overnight and fitted really well."

*************

"Just a line to say that I have now received my finished glasses (Ziena Nereus). Chris Tomlinson was extremely helpful and Ciliary Blue have done a great job in glazing them. I think that Eyewear Accessories and Ciliary Blue make a very good team and it is refreshing to find people that care about the customer and give a good service, so many thanks for your help."
