Both lightweight and stylish, I found Oxy-View eyeglasses to be quite comfortable to wear. The nasal prongs attached to the bridge of the glasses which go into the nares to deliver oxygen were barely noticeable and easy to size to fit my nose. Because there is no tubing that goes over the ears, as with a traditional nasal cannula, I thought this to be a great benefit to COPD patients, who often suffer from pressure sores where the oxygen tubing lies. The only downside that I foresee is the price. That said, I think they are well-worth saving a few extra bucks for, to purchase a pair. They would also make a great gift.
My husband, who has COPD, was also pleased with how comfortable the glasses were. Not only did they offer him much more freedom to move about, his nasal passages remained moist, unlike drying out when using a traditional cannula. He loved that he could get into bed and read without having to wear both his glasses and a nasal cannula.
In conclusion, I am pleased to recommend this product to any patient who is oxygen dependent, particularly those with COPD.
