How to choose the best moisture chamber glasses for your needs

Here are our recommendations on how to select the best type of glasses for your needs.

 Ziena Eyewear

Ziena Nereus

Ziena Eyewear are similar to normal optical frames, but with the addition of an opaque silicone eye cup.

The silicone eye cup is soft and gentle against the skin and is less noticeable than the AirShield when wearing the glasses with clear lenses.

Ziena glasses are most suited for dry eye relief indoors. They may be your best choice if you are looking for glasses to wear in an office to help relieve dry eyes, for example when using a computer.

7eye AirShield

7eye AirShield glasses or sunglasses are the best choice if your main requirement is to protect your eyes from the wind, dust, or pollen when outdoors.

7eye Ventus with AirShield

They have close-fitting wraparound frames fitted with a comfortable, insulated eye cup that shields sensitive eyes from wind, dust, and pollen and creates a separate moisture chamber around each eye.

When worn with a tinted lens, the AirShield eye cup is well concealed, making these glasses look similar to normal wraparound sunglasses. When worn with a clear lens, the eye cup is noticeable and the appearance is more goggle-like.

Body Specs

Body Specs is another range of wraparound sunglasses with removable protective gaskets.

Our Body Specs range also includes lightweight goggles with a flexible nose bridge and adjustable head cord so they mould to the shape of your head.

Most people find that the goggles create a good seal around their eye sockets, making them effective for moisture retention and for blocking dust and pollen. Their portability makes them useful as a travel goggle.

How do I select glasses that will best fit me?

The effectiveness of moisture chamber glasses for relieving dry eyes depends on how well the glasses fit your face. They are not intended to create an airtight seal like swimming goggles, but the moisturising effect is maximised if the eye cup fits closely around your eye sockets.

We suggest that you start with the Size Guide which lists all the glasses in order of increasing frame width. You can click through from the Size Guide to a full description of each frame, including its measurements.

Also look at our comparison between different frames in the 7eye AirShield range

As the glasses in our range vary in shape and fit, this is why it is well worth ordering several models for comparison.
