I found a place in Madison, WI that will make a pair of glasses into moisture chambers.
I printed Saag's instructions, http://www.dryeyezone.com/talk/showt...ers-in-Toronto, and took them to the local Super Walmart. the vision center manager, Andrew looked over the instructions and said he'd be happy to give it a try. We found some glasses that met Saag's description and I found some vinyl at a local craft store. Andrew ordered the glasses and when they came in, he fitted the vinyl and painstakingly trimmed the vinyl from the front of the lenses. When I arrived, he measured the distance from various points on my face to the frame and trimmed down the the remainder of the vinyl.
He did a great job. Because of my strong prescription, my only option for wind protection had been over the glasses goggles. They never fit right, didn't do a good job, were bulky and looked just awful. Now I have a pair that look like normal glasses and protect my eye from the wind!!
My eye condition seems to be in remission so I can't easily tell how effective they are in preventing dryness or inflammation. What I can tell you is that I can fan my face with a newspaper and I don't feel the breeze on my eyes. I can also tell you that my eyes didn't get irritated after an hour and a half in the local large grocery store wearing these glasses. with my regular glasses, they feel bad within an hour. I can also tell you that no one gave me a second look. I really don't think the fact that I have vinyl surrounding my lenses is all that apparent to anyone.
Thank you, Saag and thank you, Andrew.
To all you dry eye sufferers, keep looking. Don't give up. There may not be a cure yet, but there are things you can do to get relief in the meantime. You just have to find what works for you.
