Moisture chamber glasses are a proven way to provide relief from the discomfort of dry eye symptoms. They are often the quickest, easiest and safest way to ease dry eye pain and make your eyes more comfortable. They don't replace medical treatment, but do improve quality of life.
Moisture chamber glasses are regularly recommended to their dry eye patients by leading eye hospitals
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 area.
This creates a seal around your eyes that insulates them from the wind, dust and pollen and other drying factors in the atmosphere such as air conditioning.
As a result, your eyes remain more hydrated and you get relief from the soreness experienced with dry eye conditions with less reliance on eye drops.
Moisture chamber glasses may have a translucent silicone gasket like the Ziena spectacles illustrated above, or a silicone rubber gasket like the 7eye AirShield sunglasses, as illustrated below. The moisture chamber effect is the same.
