    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.

    Outstanding!

    Wearing these goggles has made a huge difference for me. My dry eyes are now moist eyes each morning when I wake up.

    Thank you very much for suggesting them and authorizing the return of the Tranquileyes, which did not work for me.

    Like blackout curtains for dry eyes

    I love this night eye mask. I have dry eyes and a tiny face, and these fit me great. Bonus: they are great at keeping light out as well. The only drawback is that the silicone around the nose bridge tends to break at the six-month mark, so I end up replacing them twice a year. However, for me this is worth it since I can't go a night without them.

    Best nighttime protection

    This is the least obtrusive, most confortable and easiest to clean goggle of Tranquileyes and these and all others on this site (I have tried them all). I sleep on my side and they stay on through the night.

    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!
