The eye patch is designed for adults who wear glasses. If you do NOT wear glasses, then please refer to our selection of ‘Eye patches with elastic for adults’.
The eye patch is produced by the brand Kay Fun Patch, which was developed by an English orthoptist. The patch fits all types of glasses. It can be used to cover both the right and left eye. The patch can be reused, carries the CE-mark, is skin-friendly, and can be hand-washed if subsequently air dried.
The eye patch can be used by adults who suffer from sight impairments, such as double vision.
It is attached to the inside of the glasses. This is beneficial, as the glasses help to keep the eye patch in a good position, as well as to prevent light from penetrating from the sides, due to the tightly-fitting design.
Be sure to contact an orthoptist or eye doctor if you are in need of a professional assessment of whether an eye patch is the right solution for you.
The eye patch consists of an oval piece of fabric, which sits on the inside of the lens. It has been designed to accommodate both the lens and the leg of the glasses, so that it covers the entire eye. Placing it on the inside of the glasses ensures a tight fit around the skin, which prevents any light from entering from the side.
The eye patch has been given a symmetrical shape, which means that it can be used to cover both the right and left eye. Certain eye patches from Kay Fun Patch feature a pattern that means that when ordering, you have to specify whether the eye patch is for the left or right eye.
The eye patch is attached to the glasses by passing the leg of the glasses through the two holes and the nose pad through the third hole. If the glasses do not have a nose pad, then an elastic is used to fasten the eye patch.
You can find instructions on how to attach the eye patch onto glasses on the page ‘Guide for eye patches’.
The eye patch is available in two sizes. Regular measures 11.6 cm in length and 5.5 cm in height (maximum). Large measures 14 cm x 6.2 cm.
The eye patch is rather long, since its design accommodates the bend in the legs of the glasses.
See our ‘Size guide’ if you are interested in reading more about the size.
The eye patch is of high quality. It is made using a soft, cushioned, and highly breathable choice of fabric. This makes it skin-friendly and comfortable to wear.
The fabric used to make the eye patch is Oeko-Tex® certified. It consists of several layers of breathable fabric on top of each other. The inner black layer is made of 100% cotton, which ensures good comfort against the skin and allows any moisture to either be absorbed or directed away. For these reasons, the eye patch is comfortable and skin-friendly to wear.
There is also the possibility of washing the eye patch using a mild washing detergent and cool water. Subsequently, the eye patch must be air-dried in order to keep its shape and appearance.
As the eye patch is washable, it can be reused again and again for several months. Thus, it can boast of having sustainable qualities.
The fabric is also produced, dyed, and cut in the UK using environmentally friendly methods and colours. This gives the eye patch a low CO2 footprint.
The eye patch is safe to use. Nevertheless, since covering the eye can affect one’s vision, it’s important to consult an eye doctor for advice on how to correctly use an eye patch.
The eye patch is produced in England and carries the CE-mark.
