If you suffer from dry eye syndrome, hay fever, or if your eyes are very sensitive to the wind, you may benefit from wearing dry eye glasses. These are like normal sunglasses or spectacles with the addition of a padded gasket that helps seal the eye sockets, creating separate moisture chambers that conserve your corneal moisture, reducing symptoms such as itchy eyes.
Wearing dry eye (or moisture chamber) glasses is a completely natural form of relief that avoids regular use of eye drops. However, in the past, moisture chamber glasses have looked unattractive and cumbersome, making the wearer feel out of place in an everyday environment.
Eyewear Accessories, the UK based specialists in dry eye glasses, have spent several years researching the best types of dry eye glasses, looking not only at their performance, but also identifying frames that are styled suitably for wearing in every day situations.
We have selected two complementary brands which have their own strengths for different applications and that appeal to men and women.
7eye moisture chamber glasses by Panoptx
7eye Airshield are regarded as the best glasses for dry eye that you can buy. This brand has led the market for several years. Not only do they have a really comfortable well padded gasket that insulates your eyes from drying atmospheres but also they are styled with the “designer” look.
Whether you choose the Briza (the most popular women’s frame) or the Cape (best selling frame overall) or the recently introduced PanHead, you can wear these glasses at home, in the office, or for sport, without looking out of place.
Eyewear Accessories has 7eye glasses with a choice of Tortoiseshell or Glossy Black frames, and you can have copper or grey tinted lenses, or clear lenses. All the lenses are made from tough polycarbonate and provide 100% UV protection, so they are suitable for sport. The frames can also be fitted cost-effectively with prescription lenses if required.
Body Specs moisture chamber glasses
The Body Specs range is a popular choice for sports and leisure use. A useful feature is that all the frames are supplied with interchangeable dark tinted and clear lenses, so they can be worn in different light conditions, indoors as well as outdoors.
The most popular Body Specs frame in our range is the Deep Profile (convertible sunglasses / goggles) which are illustrated here.
