Have dry eyes and especially more so during winter. Our optometrist recommends a heat eye mask. Use it 3 times a day and it really helps. Very soothing as well and as another reviewer noted, it’s so good you’ll fall asleep wearing it!
I get recurrent, severe, blepharitis at least 3 times a year and I am so thankful I found this product. This product has made a tremendous difference in the reoccurrence of blepharitis and is easy to use, relaxing, and useful since it has a storage bag and a band that the eye mask can stay on your face with ease and doesn’t move. I’ve tried other products in the past, but this works the best. I’m very happy I found this product!
Been dealing with dry eyes for a few years now. Eye drops didn’t help, and they made my eyes itch/sting. I started using this compress a few minutes a day, every day— just microwave it for 20 seconds or so and put it on. The texture of the cloth is soothing as is the heat. My eyes are no longer constantly dry. After months of wearing glasses due to my eyes being too dry for contacts, I went back to wearing contacts every day. There is no more itchiness or other irritating side effects. Another bonus— I didn’t think it would actually do anything for dark circles, but there is quite a difference. I no longer wear under-eye concealer to work :)
The only con is that this mask absorbs heat from the microwave a little TOO well. I left it in for 45 seconds on the first try— it was too hot to use. I had to wait for it to cool. So, be careful with that.
All in all, good product and great value for the price!
Not much seemed to help after cataract surgery for dry and sore eyes. The inflammation was painful- eyes hurt to touch. This has been a life saver- use it when your eyes are feeling tired and itchy. After 10- 15 minute break you're ready to go again. I microwave for 25 seconds and wear to bed with Restasis drops or take a 10 minute break at work from the computer screens. The mask doesn't look like it's 'divided' but it settles nicely over bridge of nose onto your eye beds. I appreciate accidentally finding this mask. I have hand washed it and no problems. thank you
I love how this mask keeps its own humidity and conforms to the shape of your eyes so you get maximum warmth. It’s so soothing and comfy. So much better than a traditional compress. I am a daily contact lens wearer and have recently developed Blepharitis- this mask is helping!
Never mind the people reviewing here who complain their eyes are blurry after using it. This is true; blurriness will happen, but is proof the product is working as it should. Warm compresses or masks like this are meant to get the oils of your lids flowing. After using it, the natural lubricating oils of your lids will be on your eye. Give it time to blink away naturally or use drops to clear your eyes.
If your eyes are often dry or irritated, try this mask out once a day at bedtime and watch how quickly they feel better! I’m using this mask daily along with using lid scrubs and my issues have all but disappeared. I’m so glad I don’t have to give up my contact lenses.
