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 has led the field of protective eyewear for several years. Not only do these glasses have a really comfortable well padded eye cup that insulates your eyes from drying atmospheres, but also they are styled with the “designer” look.
There is a range of styles and sizes in the Airshield range and a choice of gloss black or tortoiseshell frames on many frames.
Eyewear Accessories stocks the glasses with a wide choice of tinted and clear lenses, including polarized and light-reactive ones. 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.
7eye also make the Ziena Eyewear brand of moisture chamber glasses with translucent silicone shields. The protective eye cup on this brand is less visible than on the Airshield, making Ziena Eyewear a good choice if you intend to wear the glasses with clear lenses.
