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!
