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
  • Two sets of white sponges

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, or moisten the enclosed white sponges in purified water, squeeze out excess and insert into the back of the mask. 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.

Quartz silicone shields

This item works great with my cpap. I like the fact that it is clear so I can still see my alarm clock during the night.

It keeps the air from my fan off my eyes and keeps them from drying out.

Works great with my CPAP

I've had a pair of quartz silicon shield goggles for over a month now. Before getting them I had about given up on my cpap therapy due to the constant wind blowing in my eyes all night long. I just couldn't tolerate it, and was at the point where I couldn't get more than 4 hours of sleep. But these goggles really ameliorated most of the problem. I can now say that I get a good, solid night's sleep! I still have to deal with the occasional air leak when I turn over and dislodge my mask cushion, but I no longer have air blowing in my eyes all night long. Hurrah!! These goggles are very light-weight, which I think is what makes them comfortable; I had tried traditional sleep masks and they were too heavy and bulky. I'm handling my silicon goggles very carefully to make them last, but I'm *very* happy to do this in order to get relief. Note - the silicon was mildly irritating the skin around my eyes, so I put a very small dab of pure aloe vera gel on the area where the goggle touches my skin (NOT in my eye, just under it where the goggle sits). This completely took care of the issue. NOTE FROM REBECCA: Thank you so much for posting all this detail! I appreciate the tip about the aloe vera gel! I had another user recently recommend using castor oil with one of the adhesive night products (EyeLocc), on the basis that if any migrated into the eyes it wouldn't be a problem. Not sure if that is appropriate with silicone, but thought I'd mention.

Use a silk pillowcase

If these get dragged off get a silk pillow case. It reduces friction. REALLY helps with wearing CPAP masks to. Amazon has a great two-sided one. One side silk and other cotton. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01I0BCUHG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?smid=A3SLOCY3QCHKVV&th=1

not helpful for me

I wake a few times at night with painful eyes. They hurt by merely moving my eyeballs prior to opening my eyes. Was hoping the shield would keep enough moisture inside to keep my eyes comfortable. I could see moisture droplets inside the goggles but it does not help my problem. On the plus side I found them to be very comfortable and got used to wearing them right away. Tried them for 5 nights and decided to quit.

Love the Quartz

I have severe dry eye and had used other goggles and gave up. I use a small size ZZZZ full face mask with CPAP, so needed low profile so it can fit well and be comfortable. I tried this goggle under the mask and, for the first time in ages, I woke up with happy eyes!! It is a great seal and prevents the mask from blasting my eyes when there is a leak or blow-back from exhaust hitting a pillow. When I awoke I found condensation on the inside of the mask and my eyelids were moist. Best of all, no burning eyes. I love these goggles.
