Product Detail

Nexcare™ Opticlude™ Orthoptic Eye Patch is used to treat amblyopia in children. Amblyopia, or “lazy eye,” is a common condition among children and is caused by strabismus--a condition where the eyes are misaligned--or eye conditions such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism. Nexcare Opticlude Orthoptic Eye Patches feature a gentle, hypoallergenic adhesive and highly breathable backing. These doctor-recommended orthoptic eye patches stick well and are easily removed.

Directions for Use:

1. Follow directions per your eye care professional.

2. For best adhesion, first clean and dry skin around eye.

3. Remove paper liner from the eye patch.

4. Gently close both eyes, keeping facial muscles relaxed to avoid forming wrinkles.

5. Apply eye patch with narrow end towards the nose. Do not stretch the patch or pull skin.

6. Secure the patch by applying light pressure with fingertips around the outside of the eye patch.

Directions for Removal:

Support the skin around the eye patch. Starting at the nose side of the eye patch, gently pull the eye patch slowly towards the ear by folding it over itself, while continuing to support the newly exposed skin with your fingers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Used for 'lazy" eye. My son used these for a year to correct his eyesight. January 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product works wonderfully with small children. As foster parents, we occassionaly have a baby that has a vision problem and needs their eye or eyes patched and Nexcare patches are the easiest to find and when it is time to come off doesn't hurt the baby with a sticky residue like some others do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sticks the best We have used these everyday for the last 7 years, to help correct my son's vision. They stick to his face better than all other brands, only wish they were cheaper. February 8, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by No stick makes product worthless I am on second package of 20, they are for my grandson and his eye problems. They are wothless. They do not stick and we have taped them on and of course that defeats the purpose of being comfortable to wear. I do not know what the outcome of this review will be, but if likes the rest of the companies, the consumer seems to be last on list for any remedy. January 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple to peel, apply and then remove when needed. The Nexcare Opticlude Orthoptic eye patch has been more than an eye covering for me. I have had multiple eye surgeries since 2010 and yes, I have been wearing a Nexcare Opticlude Orthoptic eye patch every day since then. Of course, I have to change the eye patch daily. While the skin around the eyes may be pliable, it is still fragile. A number of times I thought for sure it would hurt to take off my eye patch, but it most certainly did not. Although I can't wait to have my eyecare completed, the Nexcare Opticlude Orthoptic Eye Patch has been a godsend in more ways than one can imagine; it has kept the sun out, the wind at bay, the tears to a minimum, the rain away and has allowed my eye to heal, unencumbered by environmental factors. Thank you Nexcare for making such a wonderful product! December 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product has multi uses My son plays goalball, a sport for blind and visually impaired. At the elite level of play; players are patched. Your eye patches have great adhesive and stay on even when players get sweaty. April 4, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Product hurts when removing After having eye surgery, I purchased these eye patches to cover my eye until it healed. However, the worst part was trying to remove thepatch every time. It pulled my skin and took off hair. In my opinion, these patches don't require as much adhesive considering where they are being applied. I would not recommend these patches (especially to children). November 4, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly reccomended product I use them on a regular basis and the other companies out there don't stick Like Nexcare. If you need a good eye patch use these May 19, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product performs better than other brands. Stays in place while not leaving a sticky residue after removal. My daughter had to wear these daily during her Kindergarten school year. She was able to have it stay on the entire day while at school, it didn't irritate her skin and there was little to no adhesive residue when removed. May 19, 2011
