    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

    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. 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.

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

    Like it!

    I sleep on my side a lot, and some of the other eye shields I’ve tried were uncomfortable. I am also not used to eye protection at all. My knowledge of my whole eye “issue” is relatively new. So having something that blackened everything out was driving me crazy. I love that these are clear. I can actually open my eyes. Yet they protect from the air conditioning drafts that always (evidetnly) effect me when i sleep. The best I’ve tried for sure. thank you!

    Great for CPAP Users & Saved Me from Having Eye Surgery!

    In July 2020, I injured my cornea in my right eye gardening. My eyes then began drying out at night due to the air coming in from my CPAP machine.

    Since my accident, I now have what is called chronic corneal erosion. But, the GOOD news is that these glasses have SAVED me from having to have eye surgery! Over the course of two years, I have been able to gradually heal my eye by using these glasses at night with ointment from my doctor.

    These glasses are pretty comfortable to wear. I wear them under my CPAP mask. I also give all of my doctors a print out of these glasses from the Dry Eye Shop. Thank you for these great products! ~Chantal in Michigan

    ***My only con and the reason for four stars is that the rivet holding the two eye frames together is very sharp and pokes into the corner of my eye at times. I tried to put little stickers over them, so they wouldn't be so sharp.***

    Good For Use With CPAP Masks

    I was using Onyx for my dry eye night time mask. It is excellent but I now find the Quartz product much easier to wear and not interfere with the CPAP mask. Simple is good.

    Seems to have mostly fixed my problem

    I was having very painful dry eyes because of using a bi-pap at night. I got some relief from wearing a black silk mask, but had to wear it tightly in order to protect from air leaks and the pressure was uncomfortable for my eyes, plus I was having trouble waking from lack of morning light. I decided to look for something clear and these seemed much higher quality than what I could find elsewhere. They are somewhat comfortable. The silicon is not as soft as I expected, but this also makes them more durable. I thought I could keep them on when I get up to use the bathroom, but there are drops of moisture that obscure my vision. They do, however, allow the morning light in, which helps with waking. I experimented with fit and found that they do not need to be tight in order to work. I like the extra wide, soft strap.

    I am excited that the quartz goggles seem to be helping!

    they are comfortable, easy to clean, and I am very happy with them so far. The strap does stretch; I hope it will hold up well. I have not had a week of no RCE pain.
