The "Escape" is a beautiful mask with an
attractive soft velour exterior. A key feature of this mask, other
than its generally high quality, comfortable construction, is the
cut-outs for the eyes that ensure no pressure is placed on the eyes
at all. (Click on the picture to see reverse side.) This makes it
eminently suitable for those who have avoided night eyewear because
of discomfort to the lids.
For those who want effective protection from
drafts & evaporation, yet without anything touching their lids,
this product is an excellent option. Some people simply remove the
moisture pads from a Tranquileyes goggle, but this may perhaps give
them better protection. Also, for those who have trouble keeping
Tranquileyes due to the stretchy strap, on they may find Dream
Essentials' snugger fitting straps useful, too. This is a nice
looking mask and thoroughly comfortable.
experience: For my own use I
prefer something that helps hold my lids closed. But for those who
do not need, or want, anything touching their lids, I think it's an
excellent product and thus far it's our top-selling sleep mask. As
a scleral lens wearer, the main use I would personally have for
this mask is in-flight: I can't actually nap with my lenses in, but
I don't like taking them out in airports or planes, and I seem to
be constantly dosing with drops when I have my sclerals in
in-flight. With the eye cutouts of this mask, I can wear it while
wearing my lenses, and keep my eyes open inside the mask while
listening to music or something.
ABOUT SIZE: Like most sleep
masks in the $20+ market this mask is quite broad, and because of
its design it is somewhat less flexible than other types. Suits me
perfectly but I've had customers who described it as far too large
for them. So
ladies, if you have a small
or narrow face this is probably not going to be the right mask for
you. Try the Contour for another
