    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.

    Does the job

    I only have one beef and that is the temple attachment for the strap keeps popping out of the hole. It isn't designed to take a lot of strain without coming undone. Other than that, they are exactly as marketed.

    small & light

    I have tried several different products and I come back to this one. I have a smaller head and face and it puts less press and marks on my face/around my eyes. Yet it totally blocks out the light which is also what I need. My only issue is they are not as sturdy as some. But, if you follow the rule of being careful with it and only adjusting it when it is off your face, it will last longer. It also takes up less space in my drawer...and space is an issue in my home.

    So glad this has ultimately worked out reasonably satisfactorily for you! This night stuff is often about trial and error. For me, it's also about rotating between things and picking what works today or during this season.

    The thin silicone eye cups on the Onyix/Quartz shields are definitely more delicate than other products. I would just add that there's a 6-month manufacturer warranty, which a lot of people don't know (can get a replacement if it tears in that time) and also the strap is replaceable if you find it stretches out.

    Great for small faces

    I have a small face and I'm also a side sleeper. These are the only ones that I found that both worked well and were comfortable. They do not touch the eyelids and the ends fit nicely on my orbital bones. Have never moved during sleep either.

    help some, not a perfect seal for this small face

    I chose the Onyix silicone shield because it mentions it is better for smaller faces. I can't seem to get a perfect seal on my face. Like others mentioned, they are not the most comfortable. I did notice the design seems different, perhaps an attempt to address the frequent breakage of the unit at the point of attachment to the head strap, so that might help longevity. I still wake up in the middle of the night with dried out open eye balls, which was what I was hoping to address with these eye covers.

    Great product for nighttime dry eye relief

    My 20 yr old son has MGD, EED, KC and he’s a busy college student who can’t be bothered to add one more chore to his already time consuming dry eye regimen. Previous eye masks haven’t stayed on his face as he tends to thrash around during sleep. This Onyix Silicone mask works great! Stays on, is low profile and comfortable, and he wakes up noticeably less dry. I chose it based on Rebecca’s recommendations which are always thoughtful and helpful.
