|Oxygen was first discovered by an eccentric English scientist named Joseph Priestly way back in 1774. It was first used in the actual treatment of patients by an English physician named Thomas Beddoes in 1798, primarily to treat asthma and pneumonia. Although some of the medical applications of oxygen were quickly discovered, it would be many years before the technology of oxygen production and delivery could be satisfactorily worked out.

Oxy-View eyewear was designed to make the delivery of oxygen more discreet, easy to use, far more comfortable, and in some patients perhaps more efficient. Oxy-View eyewear is available in several different sizes, styles, and colors. It allows the delivery of up to 5 liters per minute of continuous flow oxygen, is compatible with all oxygen sources, and will work with most of oxygen conserving devices available today.
Oxy-View eyewear helps you to dramatically reduce the discomfort associated with standard nasal cannula, while at the same time greatly improving self-image and compliance with your doctor’s oxygen prescription.
Wearing oxygen as continuously as possible using Oxy- View eyewear, can lead to a longer, healthier, and happier life for all oxygen dependent patients.
