The Difference

Traditional warm compresses for the eyes require frequent reheating in the microwave every 2 minutes, leading to time-consuming and ineffective therapy.

This limitation not only makes therapy time-consuming but also hampers compliance, leading to ineffective results, potential risk of burns, and perpetuation of the dry eye cycle.

Our eye masks are designed based on research indicating that to effectively unblock clogged meibomian glands, improve oil flow, and potentially boost oil production, a temperature of at least 40°C should be maintained for a minimum of 15 minutes.

Made from premium, high-quality ingredients, our eye masks are crafted from medical-grade non-woven fabric and are completely fragrance-free. They are specifically formulated to minimise allergic reactions, making them ideal for individuals with sensitive eyes and skin.


Why do we need to properly warm compress our eyes?

Meibomian glands can sometimes get blocked and stop oil secretion due to various factors, including:

  • Infrequent blinking resulting from prolonged exposure to computer screens.
  • Inadequate eyelid hygiene, such as neglecting makeup removal, permits the accumulation of bacteria and debris around the gland openings, thereby causing blockages.
  • Prolonged use of contact lenses can irritate the eyelids and disrupt oil production, ultimately leading to blockages, among other potential causes.

These all leads to meibomian gland dysfunction which causes an unstable tear film that evaporates too quickly. The oil can also build up in the oil glands or on the eyelid margin, leading to styes and inflammation of the eyelids.

Warm compress for the eyes improves meibomian gland function and promotes oil secretion. The eyelid and eyelash cleanser helps clear any debris from backed-up oil and fend off inflammation.


Can the self-heating eye masks be reused?

No, the masks are disposable and intended for single use for hygiene purposes. Each box contains 10 individually packed masks for convenience.

Lid hygiene is another important component of treating dry eyes. Bacteria can exacerbate dry eyes, which is why we've made ours disposable for one-time use.

How often should I use the self-heating eye masks?

The frequency of use can vary depending on individual needs and preferences. Some may use them daily as part of their skincare routine, while others may use them as needed for relief from specific eye discomforts.

Can the self-heating eye masks be used as sleep masks?

Yes, customers have reported that the masks make excellent sleep masks in addition to providing relief for eye discomfort.

What are the benefits of using the self-heating eye masks?

The benefits include hydration and warmth for the skin around the eyes, relief from irritable eyes, assistance with dry eye symptoms, and potential support for conditions such as blepharitis and styes. Additionally, the masks offer a convenient and environmentally friendly solution.

Are the self-heating eye masks safe to use?

Yes, the masks are designed by Australian optometrists and are made with preservative-free and fragrance-free ingredients, ensuring they are gentle on the delicate skin around the eyes. They reach a comfortable temperature and are safe for regular use.

Is there an expiration date for the eye mask?

The eye masks have a shelf life of two years from the date of manufacturing.

Self heating eye masks

I purchased 2 boxes of these after having problems with blepharitis and very sore dry eyes. My optician recommended using hot compresses each day but I bought the eye masks to take away on a holiday and found they were much more soothing on my eyes and much easier to use than fiddling around with hot wet compresses. Very relaxing too. They are a bit expensive for me to be able to use every day but I am going to order more to use in between using compresses.
Service was great as I was worried about receiving them in time for my holiday but Jeremy replied assuring me he would make sure of delivery and also offered me some good advice on eye drops to help with my problem which really did work.

Self-heating eye masks- better than the alternatives

The self-heating eye masks do what they say - provide the right amount of heat for about half an hour. Much much better than constantly re-applying wet flannels, or microwaving heat pads, which invariably end up too hot and then lose their heat too quickly. Thoroughly recommend.
