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
From the makers of Tranquileyes... While originally

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
