Each ring must be wet before use and can only be used once and must be replaced for each session.
A fresh ring is first dipped in water and then placed inside the goggle eyepiece, for each eye. The heat from the goggle causes the moisture to release, creating a moist heat environment proven to be the most effective method of treating chronic dry eyes.
