    Description (by Rebecca)

    This is my personal favorite for night dry eye protection. It was developed by Eye Eco specifically to protect CPAP mask users from air leaks, but after its launch it quickly became my go-to product for a great many people for night dry eye protection with or without CPAP. 

    Onyix/Quartz shields are not necessarily the products that provide maximal moisture, but they provide more than adequate moisture for a great many of us and they are small, user-friendly, easy to keep clean, low profile, and in general just very unobtrusive. So although I consider EyeSeals 4.0 superior in terms of protection offered (as well as some other advantages) I have stuck with Quartz for my personal use. 

    For CPAP users, Onyix & Quartz should remain the first choice for most people except those with larger hat or orbit sizes who will want to go straight to the EyeSeals. 

    I also find that many users like to rotate between products depending on time of year and the severity of their symptoms, so far example they might use Onyix/Quartz in the spring and summer months and then go back to Tranquileyes or EyeSeals 4.0 for the fall and winter when they are battling heated dry eye at night.

    Suggested best uses

    • First time dry eye shield users. This is the easiest one.
    • Users who want something low profile and lightweight. This is a great way to block all drafts and trap a fair amount of moisture without wearing anything large, thick, heavy or foam lined.
    • People who have skin reactions to the foam on Tranquileyes but for whom EyeSeals is too big or the material too heavy.
    • CPAP/BiPAP users. I have high confidence of the compatibility of this product with almost all masks. I very rarely hear from anyone who cannot get it to work properly with their mask. (It is returnable/refundable if it doesn't work out for any reason - please see return policy.)

    Limitations

    Sizing: Onyix & Quartz are  too small for some users, or may sit too close to their eyes if they have large orbits and/or very long eyelashes.

    Indentations: People who are prone to edema or who have very delicate, impressible skin around the eyes.

    Alternatives to consider

    Please see our Product Guide: Night Dry Eye Protection Devices for suggested guidelines on product choices.

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

    about the product:

    Recommended for sheltering eyes during sleep and air travel. Onyix™ (pronounced ON-ix) is an extremely soft, flexible, foamless shield made from silicone.

    It gently shelters eyes from drafts and low humidity environments while also fogging up, creating a moisture rich environment while you sleep or rest. That makes it perfect for dry eye sufferers.

    Lightweight and comfortable, the product is made in the USA, and is 100% Latex Free.

    included in the kit:

    • One Onyix™ silicone shield
    • One microfiber travel sack

    Usage and Care

    What are Onyix & Quartz Silicone Shields used for?

    Onyix and Quartz are used for dry eye protection at night and to protect CPAP/BiPAP mask users from air leaks.

    Instructions for use

    Gently clean face and eyelids to remove all dirt and make-up prior to using Onyix. Your mask is designed to keep moisture in and drafts out. The fit should be comfortable. Similar to finding your perfect shoe size. Not too tight and not too loose. To avoid tearing the mask, adjust the strap while mask is off the face. Once you find the perfect fit, the wrap is designed to stay put.

    For increased moisture during wear, add a few drops of water inside of eyecups prior to wearing. The combination of moisture, an enclosed space and body heat creates a natural humidifier for the eyes.

    Cleaning and care

    To clean shield, wash with baby shampoo and rinse well with warm water. Dry with enclosed microfiber sack. Wash the head band as needed with cold water and mild soap, rinse well, squeeze out excess moisture and air dry.

    Great product!

    I’ve been using the Quartz goggles at night for several years now due to very dry eyes. Before getting this, my eyes burned and hurt all the time. This has much improved the moisture content in my eyes at night. Highly recommend this product.

    Did not work for me but they may help someone else.

    Ten minutes after putting these on my eyes would burn and itch terribly. I think I might be allergic to the plastic. Also the soft plastic/rubber next to my skin was uncomfortable. I am not sure for me that the humid environment was the answer. I tried them because I wanted to prevent the AC air from hitting my eyes and drying them out at night. These may work great for someone else but they just were not for me. That is why I gave them 3 stars so as not to discourage someone that they may help. Like they say you really need to try them to see if they will work for you.

    Quartz silicone shield

    This has definitely helped my dry eye. I do feel a bit of rub at the nose (not too bad)and I have found the back band slip up during the night which shifts the shield a bit. Don’t want to tighten it any more as it may make the more guard rub more. Regardless of those issues I’m more than happy with the results so far!

    Amazing customer service, interaction with customer via Zoom, personalized product recommendations, ease of ordering, fast delivery, and a great product.

    Quartz Silicone Shield

    I used it for a few days to test initial fitting and then held off using it full time until I had both of my eye physicians look at the Quartz and I now have been using it continuously for over a month.

    With a little trial and error, the Quartz Silicone Shield works well for me in stopping air from getting into my eyes from the CPAP full face mask. The shield’s ease of use and maintenance is a real plus.

    The Quartz has some firm edges and I can see why some customers might have a problem with fit. Rebecca recommended that I put the goggles on first and then my mask. I found this did not work for me. Although the shield was closer to my eye and provided a better seal, my CPAP mask straps pressed on the goggles and when I awoke, there was slight bruising under both eyes. (I am on blood thinners and bruise easily). I was able to adjust the Quartz and place on outside of CPAP mask. This raised the side edges some but still blocked the air flow.

    My recommendation would be to put them on fairly loose to begin with and tighten each night until you get the perfect fit.

    I have some good news and bad news for old folks like myself. The bad news is, for me, the bags under my eyes are more puffy when I wake up. This goes away in about 30 minutes. The good news is that I wear the Quartz fairly loose and find that the small bags under my eyes fit inside the quartz and help block the air. (Never thought I would be at the age that the bags under my eyes helped…
