HydrEYE CorneOasis Contact Lens

The HydrEYE CorneOasis Contact Lens, a hydrating system for patients who have lost control of their eyelid function. Presumably, they also got bonus points for the superliminal moisture suggestions in the carefully constructed name of the product. The product description states that the device is meant for patients with traumatic brain injury, presumably to make it easier for nurses to care of the eyes of comatose patients. We could also see it being useful for patients with facial nerve disorders that affect the eyelid like Bell's palsy.
