Many patients do not realize that they are claustrophobic until they lie down and are pushed into the MRI magnet. They'll usually scream, "Get me out of here" and suddenly you are stuck with a dilemma.

If you spend time trying to coax the patient into the scanner, you could waste time and back up your schedule, so all the patients will be affected, and your staff will have to compensate, or hope they have a cancellation down the line. By suggesting that the patient try putting on the prism glasses, they will find that the prism glasses will give the illusion of being less confined, and if they help get the patient through the scan. Of course, you could always abort the patient scan, and suggest that they come back after getting a prescription from their physician for something that will help to relax them. The prism glasses will pay for themselves very quickly if a patient finds that the prism glasses help reduce the claustrophobia and enable the patient to go through with the scan.

By offering a solution to the patient, you will get high marks from the referring physicians who will hear that you are helping their patients, by providing patient comfort. The prism glasses are not ordinary glasses with a prism. The MRIwear Deluxe Prism Glasses are specially made for MRI and are completely free of any ferrous material, making them totally transparent to the scan. The Original Prism Glasses have some non-ferrous material in the hinge, to enable the glasses to fold-up. Both styles of prism glasses are made from high quality frames with optically ground prism glass. Many patients purchase the prism glasses on their own, and take them with them when going for an MRI scan. This winds up being a great decision, and we often hear back from the MRI scanning facility that they want to order additional prism glasses for each of their MRI systems.
