About NITEYE

  • Clear, self-adhesive
  • Bubble eye bandage
  • Single use
  • 4" x 3" (actual bubble is 2" x 1" x .5") 
  • 14 per box (also sold in singles so you can test it first)

Description (by Rebecca)

NITEYE has a large, firm, clear oblong bubble vaulting quite high over the eye to trap moisture and block any moving air. The adhesive flange is wide and can be trimmed to size. This is a popular disposable non-vented protective moisture chamber. 

Suggested best uses

  • Doctor's advice
  • Floppy eyelid syndrome - or anyone else who must as a matter of priority have a rigid form of protection that cannot be dislodged by movements during sleep.
  • Dry eye night protection while traveling
  • Single eye protection

Limitations and alternatives

  • Glasses compatibility: If you need a product you can use under glasses, consider Ortolux instead - its adhesive is harder on the skin but the bubble does not vault as high so it is more likely to actually fit under glasses.
  • Size: It is pretty large, though the flange can be trimmed to size.
  • Cost is the biggest limitation. This is a disposable product, not well suited to long term use. Use it for travel use it to get past a particularly difficult time, but for long term use talk to us about the durable alternatives.

Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

NITEYE® THE DRY EYE COMFORTER (EYE BANDAGES)

  • Protects eyes from drying conditions
  • Seals in valuable moisture
  • Attaches quickly, easily
  • Hypoallergenic tape
  • Contains 14 eye bandages

Description/Intended use/Indications

NITEYE The Dry Eye Comforter Eye Bandages help ease the symptoms caused by Dry Eye by protecting the eye against drying conditions. NITEYE is designed for use only when resting and can be used with or without eye drop or ointment therapy. The clear, plastic bubble attaches easily and comfortably over the eye and traps in valuable moisture during rest.

Recommended Instructions for Use

  1. Remove eye glasses or contact lenses.
  2. Clean skin surface around the eye. Make sure area is clean and dry.
  3. If ordered by your physician, place drops or ointment into the eye.
  4. Carefully peel away white protective backing to expose the adhesive surface.
  5. Gently place over the eye, centering the clear plastic bubble over the eyeball. (Take care not to place the adhesive portion on the eyelid or eyeball.)
  6. Apply light finger pressure to the adhesive portion in order to firmly seal the bandage around the eye.
  7. Within minutes, you may see moisture form on the inside of the bubble chamber. This is normal - it shows NITEYE is working.
  8. After resting, carefully remove the bandage and dispose of properly. Do not attempt to reuse product. Reuse could cause improper adhesion, resulting in adequate protection.

Warnings and Precautions

NITEYE is intended for use only while resting. Moisture may form on the inside of the bubble chamber, obscuring vision. Do not attempt to walk or operate any machinery or an automobile when wearing NITEYE. Walking or operating machinery or an automobile while wearing this product could result in serious injury or death. Immediately discontinue use if you experience discomfort, skin irritation or if redness develops. Do not wear longer than 12 hours. Always consult your physician before using. Keep out of reach of children.

Great product, makes night time easier

I agree with Rebecca that these bandages have a better adhesive than the ortolux. However, I believe the ortolux bandage is more comfortable as it contours the eye/face better. Both are great for night time use and you can put your own adhesive on the bandage if needed.

These are also super convenient. I was using eye shields and tape before these. Preparing the shields every night was a huge hassle. Very grateful for these bandages. NOTE FROM REBECCA: Thanks for posting your review! Love the detail and you are so right on. NITEYE is stiffer, both the bubble and the adhesive flange. My ideal product is a marriage of the two.

Such a great product!

My husband had an acoustic neuroma removed in December and was left with facial paralysis (prayerfully, temporary); however, his issues with dry eye were the most challenging issue he faced. He wears an eye weight during the day to help with lid closure and wears a NitEye bandage every night to hold moisture in while sleeping. These have been such a blessing and he can sleep without worrying about corneal abrasion or a painful dry eye. They are very easy to place over his eye and the adhesive works very well. Highly recommend! NOTE FROM REBECCA: Thank you for posting, Shirley! The residual effects of AN surgery on the eye are always so tough! Wishing your husband rapid and complete healing for that! - Rebecca

Great product

I have been using these while I have Bell's palsy and am unable to close one of my eyes. I do not want to tape my eye closed (for fear of injury if tape came loose) plus I really need the moisture these provide. They have been a wonderful solution for me in terms of comfort and keeping my eye safe. After ~5 weeks of use, my skin started to seem a bit weary of the tape plus I realized I was going to need a longer-term solution due to lack of improvement so I decided to switch to EyeSeals. I continue to use these bubbles when I wash my hair as they provide the best seal to keep shampoo out of my eye. NOTE FROM REBECCA: Thanks so much for sharing! So helpful. Great tip about the shower! I had someone asking me not long ago what they could use for showering and this one would not have occurred to me. For the benefit of other readers... some of my users put one of the silicone (more skin-friendly) tapes underneath these to mitigate the damage from the adhesive on the patches themselves.
