    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.

    Works for me!!!

    I had air going into my eyes from my CPAP (12 year CPAP user). My eyes ached so bad and watered. These are perfect. They fit inside of my sockets. Others fit outside. I’m happy with them. Got a backup pair and would probably get several but expensive. My Opthamologist took a screenshot of the container. Wish eye docs knew more about how CPAP wearing can affect eyes!!!! I diagnosed myself.

    The verdict is still out

    I have only had my moisture goggles for about two weeks. I go to my eye dr next week. So I will get her opinion then. Until then, the verdict is still out. But I can give you my initial thoughts....

    I have a very narrow face. I have to kid’s glasses. Thisis the only option that worked for me. And it fits. That’s great! However-if I leave the glasses to where they feel comfortable on my face, they aren’t tight enough and air seems to seep in. If I tighten them to keep air out, they hurt-both the bridge of my nose and around my eyes. When I wake up in the morning-I have deep lines around my eyes where the goggles were. The lines will not go away. I put a tissue to pad the nose piece but can’t do anything for the rest. I know I need that seal around the eyes. So if I go next week and my doctor says that I really need these goggles-then I will keep them. If she says they aren’t helping that much, then I will return them.

    DryEyeShop

    Hi Joanna!

    Thanks so much for sharing! I'm concerned about the indentations that the Quartz is making for you. If your doctor feels you're benefitting, but you're having to choose between loose and leaky or too tight, I'm wondering if possibly the Tranquileyes goggle might be an option to consider? Due to the foam cushions, the fit is much more forgiving (most people can get a good seal) and the foam is very deep and soft so it's very rare for anyone to have indentations. If you don't want the moisture pads resting on your lids, you can trim them down and put them at the back of the goggle or substitute the white thermopads (sold separately, but cheap) so that you still have something vaulting your eyes but keeping in the moisture. Another possibility - if the eye cups are too far apart, you can remove the nose bridge and replace it with some heavy thread to cinch the eyecups closer together. I know it's a hack, but many people do this and it might make it possible to get a better seal without having to tighten the whole thing so much. - Also want to assure you that you can still return it even after that kind of modification, and if you need an extension to the return period to figure this all out just let us know. Kind regards Rebecca

    Best Goggles

    I’m very happy with these goggles. They are very small and perfectly seal around my eyes leaving plenty of room to not interfere with my CPAP mask. I do some tossing and turning, but wake up every morning with the goggles firmly in place. I no longer have to worry about waking up to corneal abrasions.

    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.
