More wraparound eyewear
HARLEY DAVIDSON makes some styles with a removeable foam liner roughly comparable to the Wileys. High end of the price range, but they may suit some face shapes or preferences better.
SOLIS GOGGLES are another military applications outfit. They have frames similar to Wiley X but lower-end and a lot cheaper ($20-$40).
CLIC GOGGLES make glasses that have a magnetic closure in the middle (bridge) and have a foam lining. Again, for some hard-to-fit face shapes/preferences these may work better. (~$60).
MORE GOGGLES... There are definitely some other, cheaper models kicking around with some kind of foam lining. We can't keep up with them all but we are starting to build a larger directory at www.dryeyeyellowpages.com so please check that out for current details.
ABOUT SWIM GOGGLES: Some people with very severe dry eye use swim goggles for protection. There is an excellent guide to this kind of product over at www.dryeyepain.com (a site run by a sjogrens patient) so we're not going to re-create the wheel here - except to say that airtight goggles MUST BE USED WITH CAUTION AND WITH A DOCTOR'S SUPERVISION because you can harm your eyes by depriving them of oxygen too long. Please see this page and scroll about halfway down for the DryEyePain.com site information on swim goggles.
Acrylic shields and other stuff
Eagle Vision - Moist Eye Moisture Panel (if you click on that link, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page) makes an acrylic shield that fits on regular eyeglasses; called the Moist Eye Moisture Panel. Talk to your optician about it. Caution - according to what we've heard from users, getting them fitted to eyeglasses is not always easy and can result in frame breakage. Some opticians might be able to make something similar. See DryEyePain.com for some suggestions.
More shields: There are some other options developed for different purposes, such as the "Eye Mates" and "Wing Mates". They tend to be much more obnoxious looking than the EagleVision product but might be helpful for some.
Home made: I once saw a pair of glasses frames to which a dry eye patient had fitted some weatherstripping. It was really nicely done, did not look conspicuous at all and seemed to be serving her pretty well.
Plain old plano glasses: People who don't normally wear any glasses need to know that ANY spectacles may be better than nothing, in terms of reducing airflow and evaporation. Finding a nice frame and getting a plano (no-prescription) lens fitted may be helpful, especially for those looking for appearance-friendly ways to incrementally improve their dry eye at work.
Have you been holding back on purchasing protective eyewear because of the high cost of getting them made in a bifocal prescription?
You may want to consider stick-on bifocals! Here is an example of one modestly priced vendor with a range of plus prescriptions from +1.25 to +3.00: SafetyGlassesUSA.
This is the first commercially available moisture chamber made to look like normal glasses and which will take most prescription. See seefit.net for details. Excellent product, costly but worth the investment for those with the long-term need.
