Description (by Rebecca)

NOTE: All of my discussion about Tranquileyes on this page is directed specifically at overnight dry eye protection. For information about Tranquileyes as a warm moist compress using Thermoeyes heat inserts, please see Tranquileyes Advanced. 

Tranquileyes is the original Eye Eco product for night dry eye protection and warm compresses, launched more than 10 years ago now. It was revolutionary at that time - up till then, the only thing doctors ever seemed to recommend for overnight dry eye protection was more, and more, and more ointment. Or taping the eyelids shut if it got really bad. 

Fast forward a decade... Eye Eco have continued innovating new products for night dry eye protection and have made huge strides towards addressing a wider range of fitting requirements and niche user needs. Tranquileyes meanwhile remains a very important tool for night protection for people with severe symptoms, particularly aqueous deficient dry eye types such as auto-immune conditions (e.g. Sjogrens, RA). It is not suitable for everyone, however, even if they have severe symptoms. 

Tranquileyes offers a unique combination of advantages:
  • Deep foam seal: Viscoelastic ("memory") foam conforms perfectly to the contours of the face.
  • Removable moisture pad: Pads made of the same foam are removed, wetted and replaced in the goggle to add maximal moisture to last through the night.
  • Potential for light pressure on the lids: For users whose lids do not fully close (a common problem called nocturnal lagophthalmos - not always a problem on its own, but can be serious in conjunction with dry eye), the pads may be helpful in holding the lids closed, depending on fit. Fit can also be customized by trimming the pads or adding extra thin pads if the eyes are deep set. 

How do you decide which night product to try first - how do you determine whether Tranquileyes is really the best one to start with? Well, honestly, at the end of the day it will be all about trial and error - most people don't know until they try something what their tolerance will be or whether a product will be compatible with their sleep style.

The answers are not always intuitive - for example, I speak frequently with people who have poor eyelid closure at night (Bell's palsy, complications from blepharoplasty and a variety of other situations). Often they are convinced they need something that will hold their lids down, but in practice they often find that they cannot sleep, or that whatever holds their lids down might slip and give them a nasty abrasion. So the answer may actually be a vaulting type of shield that maximizes moisture to prevent damage from exposure but without anything coming near the eyes themselves. 

Please see our Product Guide: Night Dry Eye Protection Devices for suggested guidelines on product choices.

Best uses

In my opinion, patients most likely to be successful with Tranquileyes for overnight use are:
  • Severe dry eye patients intent on maximizing moisture retention overnight, AND
  • Small to medium sizing, AND
  • Are used to wearing a blackout sleep mask at night or are confident they can tolerate some extra bulk over their eye area overnight, AND
  • Do not have any extreme material or chemical sensitivities

Limitations

  • Foam: Occasionally people have skin reactions to the foam. It's a lovely high quality foam, and this does not happen often, but enough to be aware that it's a possibility.
  • Sizing: People with larger orbits may find the cushions rest too close to their eyes; people with eyes set unusually close together or far apart may find the nose bridge does not work for them.
  • Pressure on eyes: The moisture pads can press down uncomfortably. This may be easily remedied by customizing the foam fit, but for some users any contact with the lids will be undesirable.

Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

about the product:

The patented tranquileyes® travel and sleep kit is designed to promote a relaxing, restful sleep, making it perfect for long flights, power naps, and your regular sleep patterns.

Padded with comfortable memory foam, they naturally shelter your eyes from drafts, dust, and low humidity environments, all contributors to dry eye and related conditions.

The goggle includes a set of removable moisture pads which can be soaked in hot water prior to sleep. This aids in the creation of moist-heat, key to soothing tired, irritated eyes. For migraines or puffiness, the pads can be frozen to create effective cold therapies, anytime you need them.

The goggle also creates total darkness, stimulating the pineal gland to release melatonin, a key promoter of deep sleep and relaxation. Whatever your dry eye problems, our travel and sleep kit can help, whether you're at home or on the road.

included in the kit:

  • One standard size tranquileyes® goggle with foam
  • One mini stainless steel travel canister

Usage and Care

What is Tranquileyes used for?

In this context, Tranquileyes is used for overnight dry eye protection. 

Tranquileyes can also be used for moist heat therapy along with Thermoeyes heat inserts (purchased separately or in a moist heat therapy kit such as Tranquileyes Advanced). 

Instructions for use

Simply moisten the pads, place inside the goggle, and place over the eyes, adjusting the strap until comfortable. For cold therapies, freeze the moisture pads, then wear as normal.

Cleaning and care

Washing

Hand wash moisture pads (grey inserts) and/or thermopads (thin white foam inserts) with mild antibacterial soap and rinse thoroughly with hot water (shower temperature) before or after each use. Wash plastic eye covers and outer foam eye cushion as needed.

After rinsing, gently squeeze excess moisture out of pads and foam. Pat any excess moisture out of eye covers with a towel and hang to dry. All kits except the 'Mini' come with a net dry bag that you can use to hang your tranquileyes dry and keep clean.

Replacing Foam and Moisture Pads

Foam eye cushions should be replaced as needed, typically every two months if using daily. To replace, peel the old cushion away from the eyecup, one at a time. Peel liner off replacement foam, align each replacement cushion with the appropriate eyecup and press foam to eyecup. Dispose of all old foam (outer ring and inner moisture pads). Replacement foam may be purchased here.

Warranty information

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

I always come back to Tranquileyes

I have lagophthalmos. In the last 15 years, I have tried everything for nighttime eye protection: ointments, tape, Eye Seals, Onyix and Tranquileyes. I always come back to Tranquileyes. The combination of moisture plus a sleep mask is the perfect recipe for a good night’s sleep.

Beware if you have blepharitis

I have blepharitis and wore tranquilleyes at night for years. I finally had to give them up because I was getting too many irritations with pus in my eyes in the morning. I faithfully cleaned the pads every day as suggested. Washing them with soap everyday was not enough to keep them clean enough so as not to give me infections. After I stopped using them I rarely have problems with infections and pus. It would be wonderful to have something I could use to cover my eyes at night without compromising them. Please rethink the foam pads and provide something that won't promote the growth of bacteria. For persons with blepharitis, I would not recommend the use of Tranquilleyes. NOTE FROM REBECCA: Wow, so sorry to hear you have had infections. It's a good reminder that this product should most definitely not be used when there is any active infection, and for anyone who is prone, should only be used subject to a doctor's approval. I would say that that may be equally true for other products that trap moisture *and* come in contact with the eyes. I have heard from people using cling film over their eyes that had recurring infections as well.

Blepharitis comes in many forms (anterior, posterior, chronic, or just occasional flare-ups, demodex, etc)... and also Tranquileyes pads may or may not come in contact with the lids depending how it fits you. I have known many people with some form of blepharitis who have used this product successfully for years and others who…

Worth a try

I finally had to get a pair with the heat on now. Easy to use and my eyes are so much whiter in the morning. Blocks out 99% of the light.

Very Comfortable Night Protection

I found these to be very comfortable. I like the idea that there are very thin pads that fit inside to hold moisture. I don't like the thicker pads that come with the tranquileyes. I sleep on my side and had no trouble sleeping with the thin pads inserted. They are designed to avoid eyelids and eyelashes. These really block out light so if that is your problem these will be very effective. I purchased them partly to see whether my dry eye problem at night was the result of incomplete eyelid closure. It isn't as I still had the problem of extremely dry eyes during the night despite wearing the tranquileyes with saline soaked pads. Oh well….. NOTE FROM REBECCA: Thank you Michael, appreciate all the details and glad you figured out about modifying the pad configuration! So sorry you're continuing to have such dryness issues... I think that for so many of us, it's a combination of conditions, and we continue to hunt down and address the individual issues :)
