Description (by Rebecca)

Onion goggles were really the first great cheap moisture chambers on the market. They weren't designed for us dry eye folks, but they sure work well. They were brought out by RSVP, a kitchen products supplier, for cooks, but were quickly discovered by the dry eye community. I first learned about them from a DryEyeTalk community member probably at least 10 years ago. 

They are rather on the small side and fit is closely similar to 7Eye's Cyclone glasses. With clear lenses and funky colors, not everyone will like the aesthetics, for sure. But they work.

Suggested best uses

Home. Private work areas. Or anywhere, for those who don't care how they look.

Limitations

Not Rxable (although I've known a few enterprising individuals who managed to wheedle an optician into doing it with a low Rx). Clear lenses only. You can put stick-on plus lenses on them for reading if you trim them down - due to the lens curvature, they full size ones don't stick well.

Alternatives to consider 

Many of the Global Vision glasses with foam lining are available with clear lenses, and some of them may have a more flexible fit.

Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

Eye protection technology meets kitchen practicality with our patented innovative goggles. The comfortable foam seal blocks out irritating smoke and vapors and the slightly tinted and fog-free lenses add to the maximum clarity of the goggles. These unisex goggles fit most face shapes, but do not fit over glasses. The protective case keeps them clean and scratch-free.

What are Onion Goggles used for?

They are intended for cooking, but they are popular for dry eye as well because of the low price point, good average sizing and deep foam eyecup. They are most popular for home use, to improve eye comfort and protect from heating, air conditioning and fans. 

Cleaning and care

You probably don’t want to have to immerse these often because it will wear the foam out too quickly. Baby wipes are a good idea for spot cleaning the foam. Lenses and frames can be washed with soap and water.
