What the manufacturer
This product is designed for the patient’s healing
following bilateral LASIK - or refractive - eye surgery. The
patient’s eyes are protected post-operatively, primarily at night
from accidentaleye contact or
The exterior is made of a soft
vinyl material with an adjustable, elastic strap to hold the guards
in place. The lens and frames have venting holes, permitting air
exchange that prevents fogging. The edges that contact the skin
around the eye’s orbit is an extremely soft foam, assuring a
What Rebecca Says
This product is sold as a post-surgical eye guard for
temporary use. I've found that since it is designed for night wear
and has a foam lining, it doubles nicely as a moisture chamber for
certain special cases where nothing else fits the bill.
This is a low-cost, moderate-quality item, not the most
comfortable in the world, and not intended for long term use but it
may suit your need in a pinch.
Its most important characteristics from a
dry-eye-night-protection-niche standpoint are (a) RIGIDITY and (b)
STAYS PUT and (c) CLEAR.
Here are some of the uses that this seems to match
I first came across this while scouting for products for
people who really need eye protection at night but can't stand
waking up with something over their eyes that they can't see
through. It's a simple product, but it works OK. I have tried out
other lasik eye guard type products but found most of them too
stiff to be comfortable for routine wear, or the foam lining too
Like most nightwear this goggle probably won't be equally
comfortable for everyone (eg side and front sleepers) but it may
well be worth a try for those looking for clear-fronted
alternatives in this category. This is not a high-end product and
the foam isn't the most comfortable in the world - though let me
tell you, the other post-surgical goggles I've tried were worse.
For a budget-conscious simple product, this does the job. Note
that the foam does not go around the entire perimeter - there is a
gap of about 1" at the far sides, e.g. apprx. 2 to 4 o'clock
position on the right side and 8 to 10 o'clock on the left. One of
our customers found that by placing an extra piece of foam there
(weatherstripping or something similar) they were able to get a
really good full seal.
You could also try this during the day for computer use,
reading, TV, etc. !
