Moisture Chamber Eyeglasses: Relief for Severe Dry Eye

Scott Kornfeld, managing optician at Woodbury Optical in Hicksville, NY, fabricates “moisture chamber” eyeglasses that provide relief for patients with severe dry eye. He describes the process of cutting and fitting the plastic chamber that helps to keep moisture in the eye, and he shows the tools and materials used to create the nearly invisible chamber that retains moisture. Opticians easily can learn to fabricate this product, he says, and offer a much-needed service. To learn more about severe dry eye: www.dryeyepain.com, dryeeyzone.com.
