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. 

Warranty information

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

Very comfortable

I love these goggles because you can't notice that they are on your face and they don't leave any pressure rings on your skin. I have had trouble with them coming undone at the bridge and had a pair that broke and were not repairable but what I have learned is the problem arises when you grab them by the bridge or eye part to take them off. I am now very careful to GENTLY take them by the strap at the back of my head and lift it up over the top of my head to get them off without stressing that delicate bridge part.

Were it not for this issue I would give them a 5 star rating NOTE FROM REBECCA: Thank you so much for the detailed review! Just want to make sure you (and visitors) know that there is a 1 year manufacturer warranty on this product for replacement if it breaks. Thanks again!

Good Product/Not so Good Quality

This is a good product but there needs to be some reinforcement where the clothes goes into the silicon. I bought two pairs of these and both of them broke within months. NOTE FROM REBECCA: So sorry to hear this. I hope you pursued warranty replacements with the manufacturer? They have a one-year guarantee and they make the replacement process very easy. Please let us know if you need help with that. In my experience, the longevity of the product depends a lot on how it fits and what your sleep style is... if it's a too narrow and/or you sleep on your side, the extra stress on the nose bridge or strap attachment points can cause it to tear over time. Anyway, let us know if we can help with anything, and thanks for sharing your experience!

Great Product for People with Lagophthalmos

I would be lost without EyeSeals or the Onyix Silicone Shields. Because my eyes cannot close completely, these products and nightie ointment is all I have these days. I used to use Tranquileyes, but my eyes became irritated because the sponges were always touching them.

I sew the EyeSeals into a Sweet Dreams Sleep mask to ensure no air can get in at night and it works great. I interchange both products depending on which one I want to use on a particular night.

Rebecca, I hope you always carry these two products, and the manufacturer continues to make them forever.

Works! Won't last long though

I really wish these were durable, as they DO work. I have Sjogren's, and severe dry eye. When I wear these at night, they're comfortable enough to sleep in, they fit (me) well, and they DEFINITELY keep the moisture in. When I wake up, the inside is beaded with moisture, and it certainly makes my eyes feel better.

The problem...they tear very easily where the straps meet the main eye piece. I've tried them 3-4 times now. I've never come close to having them last a year (the warranty period). So I'll get a replacement (or two), I'll go past the warranty period, they'll break again, and I'll end up having to get another pair. In short, I end up paying for a new one every year.

No more, going to try something else. NOTE FROM RBECCA: Thanks for the review Terry! So sorry you're disappointed with this. In all honesty I generally advise people to not expect more than a year of life from these types of shields. Longevity varies a LOT - there's such a variety of sleep styles and fits that more or less stress gets put on those connection points. - I'm actually pretty impressed that they worked well enough for you with Sjogrens... that's not always the case. Anyway thanks again for posting! - Rebecca
