    About Onion Goggles

    • Budget-friendly moisture chamber glasses with deep foam lining
    • Clear lenses
    • Choice of colors
    • One size fits all (relatively smallish fit)
    • 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.

      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!
