    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, 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. 

    Warranty information

    Eye Eco products are covered under a one-year manufacturer warranty. Refer to eyeeco.com or contact us.

    Onyix silicone shield

    I have the larger size and it was uncomfortable with my c-pap head gear. Not only the size but silicone is just uncomfortable. I needed a smaller size but the eye cups press on my eye lids. I have also tried the foam lined goggles but they don’t last very long. Any suggestions?

    Hi Barbara,

    If neither the small mask (Onyix) nor the large mask (Eyeseals 4.0) are working for you, do the foam lined goggles (Tranquileyes) work with your CPAP head gear? In my experience, the goggles are pretty sturdy, except that the foam needs to be replaced every few months. We sell replacement foams here: https://dryeyeshop.com/products/replacement-foam-sets-for-tranquileyes.

    If none of those goggles are working for you please give us a call at 877-693-7939 so we can discuss further! Lastly, you can return the goggles you just purchased for a refund within 30 days under our return policy.

    Best,

    Aidan

    Great for Day Sleeping

    I am a new nurse working nights and a sleep mask is essential. Unfortunately, all of the soft foam mask would shift and leak light due to my CPAP mask. This was the only CPAP compatible mask I could find, and it is pitch black. It isn't the most comfortable eye mask, it reminds me of my favorite goggles from when I swam a lot, but it isn't uncomfortable either.

    I didn't actually realize how dry my eyes got at night until I tried this mask. It traps so much moisture it feels like my eyes are sweating inside and I don't wake up feeling like I have sand in my eyeballs anymore.

    Irritating and uncomfortable, but functional

    Pretty cheaply put together. It helped keep my eyes moisturized, and the spray cooled them but it was difficult to fall asleep with them on due to the material. It also caused redness in the morning from the pressure of sleeping on my pillow. I don't have an allergy to silicone.

    Works Well

    I have sleep issues and extremely hard to block out all light in the bedroom. Sleep mask helps with the sleep by blocking all light for total darkness. As we age our eyelids become thinner or maybe the eyelids could be partially open during the deeper sleep stages. Anyway, great investment along with the cpap. Cheers.
