Dry Eye Syndrome (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Sometimes, people sleep with their eyes slightly open. If you do sleep this way, you might want to actually tape your eyes shut at night.
Moisture chambers are plastic shields (similar to swim goggles) that help keep the eyes from drying out by decreasing the evaporation of tears off the eye. The moisture chambers may be used just at night if you sleep with your eyes slightly open, or they may be used all day, if necessary.
