Abstract

Patients with dry eyes often suffer in a windy or dry environment, which evaporates tears. Such patients are advised to wear spectacles or swimming goggles to avoid excessive drying. I measured the actual humidity in front of the cornea by attaching a 30 x 13 x 15-mm ultrasensitive moisture sensor to the back of a spectacle lens.
