Convex, flat with cotton or flat with foam??? What is the difference?
Convex - this allows the eye to blink. It has a slight rounded point in the middle and the eye patch is about 1" thick.
Flat (stuffed with cotton) - this does not allow the eye to blink. It is stuffed with cotton and the eye patch is about 1/2" thick.
Flat (foam insert) - this does not allow the eye to blink. It has a foam insert and the eye patch is about 1/4" thick.
Both flat eye patches can be worn under eye glasses. The convex one can be worn under some eye glasses, the type of glasses that are a little further from the eye.
How do I know what size eye patch to get?
The size is completely up to the individual. If you would like an idea of how it will look, you can cut out a piece of paper using the dimensions of the eye patch. IE: small is 2.5" x 1.5" (6.4cm x 3.8 cm) You want to make a half circle, so the line across the top would be 2.5", then from middle of that line down would be 1.5" then join the two ends in a half circle. This gives an idea of the coverage area. Actual shape of eye patch is a little more oval
How do I know what elastic length to get?
The elastic length sizes are a world wide average for men, women and children, and does include the eye patch itself too. For a perfect fit, you can measure your head completely around - how you would wear the eye patch (over ears, under ears, etc) and put that length in the comments section when ordering an eye patch.
How many eye patches should I order?
First time ordering, order 1 eye patch to make sure size, fit and feel are right for you.
