    About Onion Goggles

    • Budget-friendly moisture chamber glasses with deep foam lining
    • Clear lenses
    • Choice of colors
    • One size fits all (relatively smallish fit) 5.5" wide X 1.75" tall
    • Not Rxable, does not fit over glasses

      Description (Rebecca's)

      Onion goggles are designed for cooks. They're basically a cheap knockoff of the 7Eye Cyclone foam-lined sunglasses frame style, but with  with simple clear lenses. 

      This was one of the earliest really popular types of low-cost moisture chamber glasses, because they have such a nice deep foam seal without looking completely ridiculous. (Although, to be fair, everyone has a different definition of ridiculous. Some people think these are cute, others wouldn't be caught dead in them.)

      What they're good at

      Onion goggles have a deep seal, clear lenses, and a reasonably versatile size. That makes them a GREAT way to "test the concept" - to figure out whether dry eye glasses will be helpful to you, and if so, how much.

      Once you know, then you can consider whether for your lifestyle needs, it might be worth investing in some more 'aesthetically pleasing types or ones with tinted or prescription lenses.

      Limitations

      • Not Rxable. (Well, if you have a very low script, are determined, and have an especially accommodating optician, it's possible, but we don't recommend it.)
      • Can't be worn over glasses. If you want a way to test the concept with your glasses, you're probably going to be stuck with safety or motorcycle goggles. Try the Evader line.
      • Stiff. They are a decent 'one size fits all' but.. if they're too small, they'll be uncomfortable.
      • Available only with clear lenses.

      Great for trying dry eye glasses without the commitment

      I have owned these for a year now, and I've used them on and off as needed.

      They're for smaller heads! I thought I was a pretty small-headed person (for reference I'm a 5'5 woman, I consider myself decently petite), and these ends dig into my skull.

      The foamy material is also quite irritating on the skin. I don't have any kind of skin sensitivities, so trust me, this will happen to you, too.

      The lens itself also isn't obviously made of the kind of material you get from real glasses, so the visual acuity loss is pretty irritating considering I'm used to the crisp experience.

      However, using these $25 glasses has allowed me to evaluate my needs and how helpful these are. I'm planning to upgrade to the Ziena's now. I wouldn't have ever made the $200 commitment without these $25 pairs to convince me that moisture chamber goggles are more effective for me than hourly eye drops.

      I highly recommend getting these if you're small headed (or even medium head sized, you can't wear them all day, but you can for a few hours) and skeptical if moisture chamber goggles will make a difference for your comfort.

      As always, I would like to thank the dry eye shop for exposing me to ideas I've never heard of for relieving symptoms. I've learned so much by being a member of this website, email newsletter, and by corollary, the community.

      What a wonderfully thoughtful review - thank you! That has always been my hope for a way Onion Goggles could be useful. I want to just add something here for those who read it (and I will try to remember to add a note to the product description as well) - for a foamless way to try out the moisture chamber concept, I also really like simple safety goggles. I have a pair that fits over my reading glasses and I use them sometimes at the office and also while driving - I like them because I don't' get the 'tunnel vision' effect with side vision obscured.

      Thanks again Radhika :)

      Almost there...

      These had the best foam layer from the three glasses I have tried. The only issue with my head/face, was that they slide down my nose and don't stay up where they belong. So I tried melting the arms a bit to keep them up. This worked pretty good, only I made them too tight and do not want to try and melt them again. They are also slightly narrow for my head, which is on the 7 3/8 side, so can only wear them for a bit before I get a bit of a headache. But they definitely do the best job of keeping moisture in and dry air out if you can them to mold to your face.

      too large; foam is irritating to skin; does make humid chamber

      I did not purchase this product from dryeyeshop but I thought it would help others to hear a review. I recently purchased these goggles and I was surprised with how large they were on my face, since I have a large head/face. They kept slipping off. If I pushed them onto my face they made a nice, humid chamber, but unfortunately the fit prevented that from maintaining.

      The other thing is that the foam padding was rather irritating on my skin. I don't know if the foam has latex in it or not, but that might be a factor for some people.

      Finally, they did fog up. It may be because I was adding eye drops prior to putting them on, which is not typical use since these are onion goggles, but if one wants to use them to watch TV or something, eye drops definitely causes visibility to be very low.

      This is super useful feedback - thanks for sharing! My take on the frame fit: Sometimes it's about the width of the frame, and sometimes it's about 'face shape' as well since the eyecup is very deep. It's challenging to get a really well fitting pair (hence the high end brand 7Eye for example which has so many different framestyles) and Onion Goggles are a moderately versatile one but there's a lot of people that they truly don't fit. Re skin irritation: my experience is that the open celled foams in general can be irritating if worn very long. There are goggles with a closed cell (smooth) foam that I can wear much longer. Anyway thanks again!
