Moisture chamber glasses

Moisture chamber glasses are a proven way to provide relief from the discomfort of dry eye symptoms.

Also known as dry eye glasses or moisture chamber spectacles, they have a gasket (also referred to as an eye cup) that rests comfortably around your eye sockets. The gasket slows down the evaporation of tears by acting as a barrier against wind and other drying factors in the atmosphere.

As a result, your eyes remain more hydrated and you get relief from the soreness experienced with dry eye conditions.

Moisture chamber glasses may have a translucent silicone gasket like the Ziena spectacles illustrated above, or they may have a silicone rubber gasket like the 7eye AirShield sunglasses, as illustrated below. The effect is the same.
