How patchpizazz for Glasses works
Our Eye patch for Glasses is worn with spectacles, is reusable and non-adhesive. We differ from other reusable patches by having no fabric layer on the inside of the lens to irritate eye lashes and sensitive skin. An occluder seal sits against the nose and cheek area to block vision and prevent “peeking”. There is minimal contact with the skin around the eye as the patch is supported by the glasses – not by the face! The patch is mounted securely on the glasses frame and cannot slip. Our patches do require the glasses to be fitted correctly so they do not slide down the nose.
What is the Occluder Seal?
The occluder seal is a special design feature of patchpizazz eye patches. Its purpose is to prevent peeking by sealing between the nose/cheek area and the patch. It is made of soft leather, so it is very comfortable. It does not interfere with the eye or the eyelashes.
We have found patchpizazz wonderful, and easy to use. Cody wears his patch to school in the mornings and found most of his classmates wanted one too! The benefits of patching with patchpizazz are great and they work. Caroline, mother to Cody aged 7
Endorsed by Eye Specialists
Our eye patches are endorsed by eye specialists with our Eye Patch for Glasses growing in popularity with children, parents, ophthalmologist, orthoptists and optometrists for its performance with occlusion therapy - where patching the 'good eye' is effective in the treatment of amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus, and double vision in children.
In my Paediatric Ophthalmology practice Patch Pizazz patches have been welcomed by parents. Because the patches sit on the outside of the spectacle frame, they do not touch the eyelashes and irritate the child. They cover all corners preventing the child from "cheating" and patients have fun choosing from the great range of patterns and colours.
Dr Stephen Hing, Ophthalmologist Children's Hospital Med Centre, NSW Australia:
I have seen a number of children that have had such an improvement with compliance and their vision while using patchpizazz eye patches. They comfortably fit over the child's glasses, eliminate peeking, and have great fun designs to appeal to boys and girls of all ages. I highly recommend patchpizazz.
Lora Parsons, Orthoptist
This will give the best chance I've seen in almost forty years of practice in gaining maximum compliance with occlusion therapy.

Eye Patch for Glasses are made with an underlayer of soft leather, and an upperlayer of cotton or silk cloth, or all leather. We use quality materials: 100% cotton or silk fabrics, and New Zealand made leather – Deer Nappa.
We have a great selection of styles to choose from. Cotton fun fabrics for children and silk, cotton, or all leather for adults. (Adults are free to choose the fun fabrics too!) When kids can choose their own design and are proud of what they wear, your patching battle is half won!
The cotton designs displayed in the selection are scans of the fabric from which the eye patches are made. We take special care to ensure all our eye patches display a feature of the fabric but cannot guarantee you will received that part of the design you may have liked. If you would like to receive your eye patch with a particular feature of the design, please email us your request with SPECIAL REQUEST in the subject line.
For example: You would like to order an eye patch with the “Glitter Wings” design, but your daughter would specifically like a pink butterfly – please email this request including your name and order number and we will do our best to meet your request.
What Sizes do they come in?
Patchpizazz Eye Patch for Glasses come in two sizes – Child, and Small Child. Adult sizes are made to measurement. To ensure you order the correct size for your child and to measure for adult sizes, please view our Measurement guide.
This size Fits children aged two years and older, or with a frame measurement of 42mm or greater. Our Measurement Guide will help you determine this size. Slits in the underlayer of the patch allow for the different frame sizes in this age range.

This size is for the tiny totts – generally under two years old, or children with small facial features who require the smallest sizing in frames (less than 42mm). Please view our Measurement Guide.

Adult Eye Patch for Glasses
If you are an adult with glasses and prefer an eye patch without straps then our Eye Patch for Glasses is for you too!
I received the patch to wear with my prescription glasses last Saturday. Just want to say, “it is awesome.” Wow, a lot of thought has gone into both patches, but the one to wear with glasses is so good. I will keep you posted.

What if my glasses don't have nose pads?
Our eye patch for glasses are very effective If you have plastic frames that don't have nose pads. The occluder seal does not interfer with the eye and the patch is securely mounted on the frame to prevent slipping. When you order your patch remember to select “no nose pads” and we will send your patch without an elastic loop.
Benefits of patchpizazz compared to other patching methods:
Unlike patchpizazz, sticky eye patches (surgical patches) can be uncomfortable and may react with the sensitive skin around the eye. They are not reusable. These patches may cost a little each, but patching this way can cost more than NZ$400 a year! Patchpizazz patches are reuseable, durable and very affordable given that treatment can last for a number of years.
I have found patchpizazz so much better than the sticky eye patches. There is no battle with putting it on, and it looks better. When you weigh the cost of the sticky patches and how often you need them, patchpizazz is worth the money.

Patching with cotton pad and tape is time consuming and awkward - plus the patches aren't reusable and can be uncomfortable. Patchpizazz patches are easy to use, and offer the comfort every child deserves.
Other fabric patches have fabric on the inside of the lens. Patchpizazz patches attach to the outside of the glasses lens and use soft leather. There is no uncomfortable fabric between the eye and the lens to cause irritation to the skin and eyelashes.
We have tried patching with tape and a felt patch with our 3 year old daughter, but both were problematic. She has very sensitvie skin and all the tape patches we tried caused her to react with red, raw, weepy skin. The felt patch was stiff and uncomfortable, and made her glasses sit crooked. She kept pulling it off. The patchpizazz patch is working better. Many thanks.
