Research Facts
Eye patches or eye shields are used to protect the eye area following injury or surgery; the holes near the top edge provide ventilation while the rigid convex shape protects the eye without applying direct pressure to the area; eye patches can also be used to obscure the eye area following traumatic damage or to improve eyesight in one or both eyes.
