HOW DO FRAMEHUGGERS® CUSTOM MAKE THE EYE PATCH TO FIT MY FRAME?
There are photos on the order form to show you how to measure the frame yourself using inches, mm, cm or you can call the optical department where the glasses were purchased and ask them to look up the frame information. You will need to ask them for the "A" and "B" measurements. We also consider the frame material (metal vs plastic) and the best described shape of the frame front. Because the eye patch is made from lightweight flexible materials, the fabrics stretch well... accommodating up to 5 mm in any one direction (just like a sock would still "hug" a wide or narrow foot of the same length). Our new nylon blend fabric will stretch more than double that (to better fit multiple frames with the same patch). The patch Velcro's into place and stretches to "hug" the frame securely into place... so you can be confident that you will have a great fit to your frame!

I HAVE SEEN OTHER
CLOTH EYE PATCHES FOR GLASSES ONLINE;
WHAT MAKES FRAMEHUGGERS EYE PATCH DIFFERENT
THAN OTHER EYE PATCHES?
Having worked as the lead Certified Ophthalmic Assistant under a pediatric ophthalmologist; I understand the concerns of parents and doctors seeking a cloth eye patch that occludes completely and limits the child's ability to easily shift the eye patch to cheat when unsupervised. Framehuggers eye patch is not only custom fit to the frame but it literally "Hugs" the frame. This also allow it to work equally as well with both plastic or metal frames. Other patches often need a "nose piece" to attach their patch to. The Velcro design also prevents any shifting. Other cloth eye patches shift out of place as they are not custom fit, allowing the patch to shift while on the frame. Other patch designs do not come completely three dimensionally off the glasses towards the face nor do they block vision from all angles. If you have light coming in peripherally; it is hard to block the brain's visual pathways that help ensure the best focus with just the un-occluded eye. Without a complete occlusion and suppression of the brain's visual pathways; you may not have as quick of a success in Patching therapy for Amblyopia. For adults whom want to patch their good eye...it is easier to focus with your good eye if the bad eye is completely covered. If you only cover 80-90%... it will still be difficult when the brain get signals from both eyes. Test this with your hand...cover most of your eye but leave some peripheral vison uncovered. Notice the difficulty in trying to focus with your uncovered eye. Now... cup your hand completely over your eye sealing out any light coming in. Notice the ease of focusing with the uncovered eye when there is no visible light coming in peripherally. Many customers commented on the comfort of Framehuggers compared to other eye patches. Our patch is made with light weight fleece; which is very soft, durable and washes well. Many other patches are made with felt which are itchy and do not wash well. Because my patches are custom fit and "Hug" the frame... their is no excess bulk and it keeps the shape of your frame front. I have had hundreds of ophthalmologists contact me who have always been skeptical of cloth eye patches. Now that they have seen Framehuggers; they too are excited to offer their patients a new alternative that is not only comfortable...but effective!. I am so confident that your ophthalmologists will also love my product that I will refund the cost of the eye patch if you or your doctor disagrees with the superior occlusion it offers when compared to other cloth eye patches available.
