I will be 68 next month and I had never heard of onion goggles until two weeks ago. I was reading, in the TV Guide or maybe People, an interview with Katherine Heigl done while she was cooking in her own kitchen. The author noted that she was wearing onion goggles during the interview and I was immediately intrigued with the idea of something that might actually help my super sensitive eyes. I have tried peeling onions under water and it was sloppy and didn't really work. I found onion goggles at Amazon and ordered a pair. The day they were delivered I couldn't wait to try them. They work!!!!!! I just used them for a second test on a really nasty onion. I felt absolutely NOTHING and didn't realize how powerful the onion was until I tasted it on a taco. No more tears after six decades of serious "onion eyes" for me. How is it that I never heard of them until just recently?
