CHOOSING YOUR M'EYE PATCH
How do I know which patch to order for my child's glasses?
We do two types of patches. Our standard patches fit metal frames with nose pads. Our MEP2 patches fit moulded frames without a nose piece. To ensure you choose the correct patch CLICK HERE
to view detailed fitting instructions for both types of eye patches.
How do I pick a colour and pattern?
Please go to our Order Online page to choose one of our many fun-to-wear fabrics.
Why don't I have to say whether the patch is for the right/left eye?
All our patches are reversible (they can be worn on either eye) because the pattern/character is on both sides of the patch. Our patches are carefully cut by hand to ensure that the pattern/character is the right way around whichever eye the patch is worn on. They are versatile 2-in-1 patches!
How much does a patch cost?
Prices vary depending on the pattern chosen. Please refer to the prices shown on the Order Online
What size are the children's patches?
Children's patches are approx.10.5cms long and 5.5cms across at the widest point. The patches are designed not only to look good and feel comfortable, but also to completely cover the 'better' eye, eliminating peeking! This ensures your child uses the weaker eye, leading to better vision! Our patches provide effective occlusion for children aged 3-8yrs old.
My child likes a design on your website that is not shown on your order online page. How can I order this design?
No. If the design is not shown on the order online page it is no longer available to purchase.
The patch my child wants is SOLD OUT! When will you be getting more stock?
Sorry, if the design is 'sold out' this means that we are no longer able to source the fabric used to make the patch and therefore that design cannot be repeated. However, you can rest assured it will be replaced with another great design!
Do you custom make patches?
No, we do not custom make patches but we are happy to receive any suggestions for new patterns or designs.
Do you have any 'xxxx' (e.g Peppa Pig/Ben 10 etc.) patches?
Our full range of patches is shown on our order online page and is available to purchase through our website. The website is updated frequently with new designs as they become available. Designs that are not shown on our Order Online page, are not available.
Do you do patches for infants under 3yrs?
No, we do not currently make smaller patches for infants and babies.
My child doesn't wear glasses. Can they still wear your patches?
No. Our patches are designed to be worn on the glasses' frames as shown. They are not adhesive. If your child does not wear glasses they can not use our patches.
Do you do pirate style eye patches with elastic straps for children without glasses?
No. We believe that pirate style patches with elastic pose a high risk to small children. We do not make them or recommend them.
Do you do patches for adults?
Yes we do standard patches for adults with metal frames. Please visit our order online page to see the designs available and to place your order.
Do you do MEP2 patches for adults with moulded plastic frames?
No, however if the frame is small and the lens no wider than 1.5 inch in diameter, the children's MEP2 patches will fit.
Do you do pirate style patches with elastic for adults who do not wear glasses?
No we don't
What size are the adult patches?
Adult patches are approximately 11cms long and 6.5cms wide. Some adults with small frames find that they are able to wear our children's patches quite comfortably.

GENERAL ENQUIRIES AND PRODUCT CARE
Is the patch easy to put on?
Both the standard M'eye Patch and M'eye Patch 2 are very easy to put on:
For the standard patch, all you have to do is slide the arm of the glasses through the double holes, then slip the single hole over the nose piece.
For M' eye Patch 2, first slip the arm of the glasses through the elastic, then through the double holes, then stretch the elastic over the frame of the glasses and slide into place.
CLICK HERE to view detailed fitting instructions for both types of eye patches.
What kind of fabric are the patches made of?
Our patches are made from 100% cotton fabrics making them cool and comfortable to wear.
Does the elastic in your MEP2 patches contain latex?
The elastic used in our MEP2 patches is latex free. The composition is nylon/lycra.
Will my child be able to see through your patches?
No. Our patches are made from 4 layers of fabric, 2 cotton layers lined with 2 layers of opaque interfacing. This completely blocks any useful vision through the patched eye, forcing your child to use the lazy eye instead.
How do I wash M'eye Patch?
Hand wash in luke warm water using a drop of mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly and allow to air dry completely before re-using.
My child's glasses keep slipping down his nose. Where can I buy glasses straps to keep them in place so he can get the best from his M'eye Patch?
Do you have any shops or representatives abroad?
No. Our patches are only available to purchase through this website.
