The Quartz is a soft flexible shield made from
silicone. It was developed to help patients suffering from
Sleep Apnea shelter their eyes from the drafts many C-PAP masks
create. Unlike the tranquileyes goggle, Quartz is
foamless and seals against the skin. It is very
lightweight and comfortable. Highly recommended for
sleep and air travel. Quartz is designed to shelter the
eyes. It isn't designed to create moist-heat and cold
therapies like the tranquileyes goggle.
Available in clear. The kit comes with one
shield, one microfiber carry sack/cleaning cloth, manual, packaged
in stainless steel container. Made in the U.S.A. Latex
MANUFACTURER'S DESCRIPTION OF NEW
VERSION WITH SECURE SLEEP STRAP:
This version of Quartz
features a new hand made head strap designed specifically for use
with a C-PAP. Combined, the silicone shield and secure
strap shelters eyes from air leaks while also fogging up,
creating a moisture rich environment for the eyes, improving
comfort during sleep. The new strap features a soft
cotton/Lycra fabric covering sewn over elastic to allow for a
comfortable, secure fit. This shield is fitted with choice of
our standard size secure strap which is 15 1/2 inches in length
(without stretching elastic) or longer version (17
included in the
Kit includes one Quartz
silicone shield with secure sleep strap, microfiber cleaning/travel
sack, miniature stainless steel tin for storage
From the makers of Tranquileyes... While originally
developed specifically for CPAP users, Onyix and Quartz have proved
over the last few years to be a mainstay for many dry eye patients
as well as certain special needs situations.
What's it like? The overall concept
is somewhat similar to Tranquileyes, i.e. eyecups with a nose
connector and the classic fabric wrap. Here is how it is different
So it's basically a stripped-down but very
comfy well-designed shield.
Who is it best suited for? Here are
some of the people I see as good candidates for Quartz or
Potential drawbacks? As with any
night eyewear item, tolerance is going to vary, especially if you
have never worn any kind of sleep mask or goggle. You are welcome
to return it if it doesn't work out. Those who don't like it will
be those for whom the edges of the silicone are not as comfortable
as the Tranquileyes foam and/or those who find the edges indent
their skin - for most of us any marks disappear quickly in the
morning, but some have identation lasting
Help me choose? Years of experience with
these products has not made it any easier to come up with a formula
for who will be happier with Onyix/Quartz, vs. Tranquileyes, vs.
something else altogether. The more I know about your sleep habits,
clinical dry eye situation and particular needs/expectations, the
better I can help predict what would be best to start with, but at
the end of the day it is going to be trial and error. I wish it
were easier! However I do have a return policy so you can always
return these types of goggles (but please note postage is your
DURABILITY: Quartz and Onyix silicone
shields are NOT like rubber swim goggles. They eyecups are made of
a thin, flexible silicone and they will eventually tear. It's hard
to say how long it will last but many of my customers replace it
after anywhere from 6 to 12 months. A few replace it more
frequently. I think that some sleep patterns (especially side &
stomach sleepers who move around), or peculiarities of fit, can
place too much stress on the edges of the silicone where the strap
and nose bridge attach. If it breaks early (within a month or two)
I will be happy to replace it free of charge, but when purchasing
you need to be aware that if the product works out for you it will
need replacement regularly.
NEW! SECURE SLEEP STRAP
Many of us have no problem with the
original/standard strap, but a significant number have found it
inadequate in terms of not staying snug enough or staying in place
well enough. I'm quite pleased with the new strap, which is also
used on the new EyeSeals shields. It's a wide elastic covered with
material, quite comfortable and definitely more secure. Pricing is
a bit steep, but on the other hand, I'm expecting considerably
better longevity out of this one compared to the standard. I also
really appreciate that a long strap is now available. Will look
forward to user feedback and comparisons as more people try
