  • Dry, sore or itchy eyes getting in the way of your everyday life?
  • Are your eyes irritated after long hours on screens or indoors, especially in dry or air-conditioned spaces?
  • Want soothing, gentle care to freshen your eyes?

We’ve got what you’re looking for.

The ZEISS Warm Eye Mask stimulates the natural oil glands in your eyelids to help relax the eyes. Let gentle, moist heat relieve the discomforts of everyday life – for refreshed, less irritated eyes.

A little heat goes a long way.

A lot of people have dry, sore eyes from time to time – but may not understand what’s going on, or what’s causing it. Simply put: The glands that produce the oily barrier that keeps our eyes moisturized are blocked. Tear fluid evaporates too quickly. The result: dry, uncomfortable eyes.

ZEISS Warm Eye Mask unblocks these glands with calming heat. With just 15 to 20 minutes of moist, gentle heat, your eye can start repairing its oily protective layer, restore tear fluid and regain much needed moisture – leaving your eyes refreshed and soothed.

What causes eye discomfort?

When your eyes are sore, dry and irritated, this is often caused by an issue in the meibomian glands. Healthy meibomian glands (1) produce meibum (3), an oily substance that coats our eyes to keep them moisturized and prevent tear fluid (2) from evaporating. If blocked, the tear fluid evaporates too quickly – resulting in irritation.

What helps irritated eyes?

Try these few simple habits to help keep your eyes healthy and happy:

  • Wash your hands often – and always before and after putting your contact lenses in.
  • Use a humidifier if the air in your home is dry.
  • Stay indoors if the air quality is poor – in high-pollen seasons or during wildfires, for example.
  • Limit your screen time if possible.
  • Don’t share your makeup or skin care products – and never use them after their expiration dates.

Of course, anything you put on your eyes needs to be completely safe. ZEISS Warm Eye Mask gradually heats to the perfect temperature for this delicate area. The soft, fragrance-free material is very gentle to the skin around your eyes – for calming, soothing comfort.

Developed using the latest eye care insights, ZEISS Warm Eye Mask has three layers that work together to deliver comforting, soothing warmth to your eyes.   

Warm moisture vapor to the rescue.

The breathable film turns the heat from the central core into gentle, warming steam to protect the delicate eyelid. It regulates the temperature and allows moist heat to be released.

Fit Flexible top & bottom layer

The soft, flexible top and bottom of ZEISS Warm Eye Mask adds an extra layer of comfort and ensures a snug fit.

Heat Central core

When exposed to the air, the central core gradually heats to the correct temperature. It distributes heat gently for safe, effective results.

Any questions?

  • Warm eye masks can provide gentle and effective relief to irritated eyes when delivering gentle moist heat with proper temperature control and warmth distribution. The ZEISS Warm Eye Mask was specially developed using the latest research to ensure that it’s safe for your eyes. If you have a sensitive skin condition, please ask your doctor about it to ensure it’s safe for you as well.   

  • We don't recommend it. If you wear contact lenses, definitely take them out before using ZEISS Warm Eye Mask.

  • No – it is designed to fit adult faces with soft ear loops that keep it firmly in place. ZEISS Warm Eye Mask is not made for children.

  • We recommend using ZEISS Warm Eye Mask on clean skin. This keeps any makeup residue from further blocking the meibomian glands or causing any irritation.   

  • When you open the sachet, the mask activates immediately. It takes just a couple of minutes to heat up. It should stay warm for around 15 minutes before cooling down. Remember: Only use the Warm Eye Mask by ZEISS once. Never try to warm it up in the microwave or reheat it after use – this could damage the material and hurt your eyes.
