anti-trachoma goggles

cheap plastic-film goggles to keep flies off eyes

During the war we were issued with very cheaply-produced 'gas-goggles' which would be just the thing to keep flies off tropical people's eyes at a vastly lower cost than expensive insecticide programmes. That should be one of the objects of one of the aid-funds concerned.

       See page 22, New Scientist 22 Jul 2000 - for a similar idea - the Fergusson Fly Trap - made from two plastic fizz bottles. Invented in New Zealand in 1997 it is now used everywhere, having e.g. reduced trachoma cases 36% in Kenya. The same bottles could make goggles too. - rayfo, Jul 29 2000
