MGD is a leading cause of dry eyes and sufferers will be glad to know that our eye mask is a simple, convenient replacement for hot flannels and warm compresses where a doctor or other medical professional may have recommended that gentle heat could provide relief.

REMOVABLE COVER OPTION.  If you choose to have a removable cover for cleaning, the cover will be made in the fabric and colour of your choice with the inner heat pack being made from natural cotton.  Please note that the optional fastenings, if selected with the removable cover option will be attached to the inner eye-shaped heat pack and the elastic fastenings will come through special openings in the rectangular shaped cover.

 

How long should the heat pack be put into the microwave or chill in the freezer?

Please click on the “Instructions” tab within this product for heating and cooling instructions. Each item will also have a card swing tag and a sewn on heating instruction label for your reference.

Is it normal that my heat pack feels damp when microwaving?

When you first microwave the heat pack the contents inside will feel damp. This will subside after a few heating cycles and is quite normal. Do not overheat the wheat bag to attempt to dry it out.

What happens if I microwave the heat pack for too long or it burns?

Please be very careful not to overheat the heat pack. If overheated they can catch fire which is very dangerous. Overheating can be caused by food or contamination from your microwave so it is important that the microwave is clean before you heat the product.

If overheating occurs, remove from the microwave and put in a safe place while it cools. Do not use again until the product has returned to room temperature. If it is giving off a burnt smell, or has small burn marks on the fabric, you have overheated the product. Please throw away the heat pack being careful that the product is not burning. A replacement product would then have to be purchased.

Can I wash my Heat Pack?

Do not place the full heat pack in the washing machine or get the contents wet as it can damage the product. It is advised that you surface clean with a damp cloth or sponge to clean the product. If the product becomes wet then it needs to be dried out before the wheat inside germinates and we suggest placing the product in a warm room to dry at room temperature. If the wheat inside does germinate then we do not recommend that you use the wheat bag.

Can I purchase removable covers that can be washed for my heat pack?

On some of our products you will see the option to purchase a removeable cover for cleaning. If this is shown as an option then this cover is removable from the main heat pack and can be washed with like colours in the washing machine or by hand at a low temperature of 30 to 40 degrees.

Is it possible to warm the heat pack other than the microwave?

No. Our heat packs are designed to be exclusively heated in a microwave.

How do I fit a larger heat pack in my small microwave?

Some of our products are larger when flat than the size of smaller microwaves. It is ok to “scrunch” up the heat pack lightly to fit into the microwave but is important not to fold the pack in half tightly as this can create hot spots when heating.

Are these heat packs suitable for young children?

No. We do not recommend that heat packs are given the very young children under the age of 3 years old. Adult supervision should always be provided and should only be heated by an adult with great care.

TO USE COLD :

  • Wrap the pack in a plastic bag (to keep it clean).
  • Place in the FRIDGE for 1-3 hours.
  • Remove from plastic bag before use.

DO NOT PLACE THIS ITEM IN THE FREEZER to use on the eyes.

    So far so good!! Ordered two linseed eye packs, one for me and one for a friend. Arrived quickly and in tact. Have used mine and find it soothing and relaxing (10 minutes enforced relaxation can't be bad!!). Too early to say if it will help with blepharitis and puffiness in long run, but have high hopes! Haven't seen friend to give hers to her yet.

    simple to use Buying a wheatybag for my eyes was a good move. It's soothing and healing and ready to go after 30 seconds in the microwave. Quick and easy to use and not wet and uncomfortable like old fashioned eye bathing.
