- Lots of Uses
FreezeFrames help with tired eyes, puffy eyes, allergy symptoms, migraines and headaches, late nights, or before / after beauty treatments. .
The gel contained inside the pad is non-toxic so even if something happens and it spills into the eyes, you need only rinse your eyes with warm water. It can cause irritation if you have sensitive eyes, but it won’t cause permanent damage. Any broken or torn pads should be thrown away. Additionally, the pads are latex free.
- Doctor Recommended
Doctors recommend using them for different situations including decreasing puffiness, treating allergy inflammation, after botox injections, and more.
- Better Than Ice
The gel pads work as effectively as ice packs, but they are not as cold or as hard as ice cubes or ice packs.
- Real Protection
As normal sunglasses, FreezeFrames offer 100% UVA and UVB protection.
These frames are meant for men and women, with a unisex design. .
- Can't Drive
While they are normal sunglasses, if you are using the cold gel packs inside the glasses, it is not recommended that you drive or operate machinery. The gel pad placement can interfere with your field of vision. This means that you cannot wear the cold therapy inside the glasses as you drive to work or drive anywhere else.
- 1 Year Lifespan
The pads themselves last for about one year of regular use, after which time you will need to buy new ones. Unfortunately at this juncture you cannot purchase the pads individually so you might have to buy a whole new set of glasses.
- Word of Caution
It is important to note that the wearing of these glasses will not fix or cure headaches or migraines. However, they can be used to treat the symptoms such as swollen eyes. For migraines in particular, dark settings and cold therapy are the most common soothing methods of treatment. These glasses, therefore, can be worn in the dark and still offer support.
Also, do not place them in the microwave.
Do not use them on children under the age of 8. .
How It Works
Traditionally, cold therapy has been relied upon to decrease things like swelling, to increase healing, and to alleviate pain. FreezeFrames gives benefits that cold therapy gives, by way of sunglasses.
Behind the product are easily movable gel pads. The re-usable gel pad attachments are affixed to the glasses where ever you want or need. Magnetic technology holds the gel pads in place against the frames. This makes it easy to move them around.
Sites which require the most soothing can be dealt with by way of moving the gel pads to the upper, side, or lower parts. There is no longer a need to fill a bag with ice and then hold it on place, or to sit a gel pad on the face. Part of the treatment for things like migraines or puffy eyes can be integrated easily into your daily routine. You can wear the glasses the same as you wear any other glasses.
By way of vasoconstriction of the vessels in your eyes, the cold therapy in these glasses can reduce inflamed tissue. When this happens, the blood flow is stimulated and the skin appears refreshed. .
How it's Different from Competitors
Right now there are no glasses similar to these on the market. There are smaller ice packs, things you can put on your eyes. However, FreezeFrames are a more functional sunglasses that cools the tissues around the eyes while simultaneously functioning as normal sunglasses. Made by an eye doctor, the glasses are formulated to target the areas around the eyes that present with the most problems. They stay cool all day and do not hurt while wearing.
- Round Reusable Gel Packs
There are no alternatives that are glasses relying on built in gel pads, but there are gel pads sold on their own. These are round, or square, reusable gel ice packs. They have a cloth backing so that you can place them over your tired eyes without having direct contact with the pack. Relying on the same science as traditional ice packs, these are just smaller, more compact for targeting specific areas, and reusable.
IceWraps is the company that produces them. Four inches in size, they are non-toxic, flexible, made with 97% spring water and durable medical grade plastic. Medical grade plastic ensures it won’t tear or rip while you are wearing it. You just store it in the freezer or refrigerator and then apply it as needed. What’s more, each order contains five of the gel packs, so in theory you can rotate them one by one until you have used them all. This is a natural way to control puffy or tired eyes, fitting perfectly along the contours of the face.
Another option is a gel mask, more or less, that rests across the eyes similarly to glasses. This, however it meant for use while lying down after a day out and about, not for wear while walking or working. .
Chattanooga has the ColPac Cold Therapy which is a blue vinyl eye mask. It offers cold therapy while remaining pliable as you use it. You can place it over your eyes to treat inflammation for up to thirty minutes. Each pack is latex free and contains non-toxic silica gel making it safe for any age.
How to Use (Step by Step)
Place the gel pads in the freezer. Allow them to freeze. This should take between 30 and 60 minutes.
Take the pads out and place them inside of the glasses using the magnetic component, then adjust as necessary to reach target areas.
Keep the cold pads on your skin for twenty minutes at a time. Repeat the cold therapy as necessary throughout the day allowing for twenty minute intervals in between each session.
- Change Pads
You can use between one and six gel pads at any given time based on your needs. If you only want to target under the eyes, you can use fewer. Should you wish to target the entire face, you can use all of them at once. Contained within these six are two for the upper eyelid, two for the lower eye, a right and left temple attachment, in addition to the uni-brow / nose bridge attachment. .
