The Onyix 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, Onyix is
foamless and seals against the skin. It is very
lightweight and comfortable. Highly recommended for
sleep and air travel. Onyix is designed to shelter the
eyes. It isn't designed to create moist-heat and cold
therapies like the tranquileyes goggle.
Available in black. The kit comes with one
shield, one microfiber cleaning cloth, manual, packaged in
stainless steel container. Made in the U.S.A. Latex
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.
How do you pronounce it? Same as
"onyx".... i.e., 'ON-ix'. Not to be confused with Onion
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 an Onyix:
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 hours.
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
NOTE ABOUT CUSTOMER REVIEWS: Since Quartz and
Onyix are identical except for color, I am posting all reviews of
either on both pages.
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. The manufacturer has a one year warranty on it which is
really great, but I'm really just talking about ordinary wear &
tear which is different from failure due to manufacturing
NEW! SECURE SLEEP
WRAP - UPDATED AUGUST 2015
All Onyix & Quartz now
incorporate a modified strap, similar to the original lycra strap
that incorporates some elastic at both ends. This helps the
adjusters stay in place better because of the stiffness of that
