  • Has anybody tried the Stadler Form Jerry Portable Humidifier?

    Has anyone found a small portable cool mist humidifier such as the Stadler Form Jerry Portable Humidifier (or any others) helpful for DES? I was wondering if having one next to me when I'm on the computer or reading might help. I live in a humid environment, so summer is not a problem (as long as I don't turn the air conditioner on), but when the heat is on in the winter, or when I travel and stay in places other than my own home, the dry air is very hard on my eyes.

    I have found that the hotter and uncomfortable i get the better my eyes are thus a vicks warm steam vaporizer works best. horrid in hot dry days but good for eyes.
    My cool mist humidifier does nothing for my eyes

      thanks soaps. My eyes also feel much better when it is hot and humid in the summer, particularly when the sun isn't out- even though the rest of my body hates it that way. I won't waste my money on the cool must humidifier then. The ophthalmologist says I should use a humidifier, so maybe I'll try the warm steam vaporizer instead. Judy

        Or a warm mist humidifier, Judy- Don't ask me what the difference is between vaporizing and humidifying, but we're running 2 warm mist humidifiers right now. I dread the arrival of really cold weather when that heat is on full blast. You could check out Bed, Bath& Beyond-see what they have. We have a Honeywell and a Holmes- they were around 40.00 each. Hope this helps.

          thanks bunnyrabbit. I'm not going to buy anything expensive now because we are soon moving from a cold weather climate in winter to a-not-so-cold climate that will be misty and foggy. Looking forward to that! I was thinking of the small personal cool mist humidifier as a temporary measure because it is inexpensive and portable, but if it doesn't do anything then I'll skip it. I actually have a small warm mist vaporizer in the closet that I used to use when I'd get bronchitis (haven't had it in years, thank goodness), but we have a mildew problem here, so I don't like to use it too often. Maybe I'll try it out again to see if it helps my eyes. Judy
