Description (by Rebecca)

Using Thermoeyes inserts with Tranquileyes goggles makes for pretty much the comfiest, most luxurious way to do a warm or cold compress... and more so if you use the XL size. There are many ways to do warm compresses. This one's not cheap, but it's very nice. 

There are two types of Thermoeyes: Instant, and beads. Instant are like hand warmers. You snap the little metal disc thiny until it starts fizzing and heats up on its own. After it cools down, it hardens. Then you boil it to 'reset' it. Thermoeyes Beads, on the other hand, are not self-heating - you put them in hot water.

Suggested best uses of Thermoeyes Instant inserts:

  • No microwave access: Thermoeyes Instant are self-heating so you don't need a heat source. Useful if you don't have or prefer not to use a microwave; useful when away from home.
  • Heat safety: With Thermoeyes Instant you don't have to worry about accidentally getting them to hot and burning your lids, as the maximum temperature is pre-determined.
  • Facial rosacea or heat sensitive skin: This size Thermoeyes in general (whether Instant or Bead type) are well suited to people with facial rosacea who need to do compresses, because it isolates the heat application to just the lids rather than a larger area around the eyes which could trigger skin reactions.


Hassle factor: Thermoeyes Instant have to be boiled after each use to 'reset' them (like handwarmers). I have quite a number of regular users who prefer this type though and what they do is accumulate enough sets to last about a week and then boil them all together.
