How to use The EyeBag -The Warm Eye Compress

The EyeBag should only be warmed by a responsible adult. Remove the EyeBag from the box and place it on a clean, microwaveable plate. Do not use the metal griddle supplied with some microwaves as this may burn your EyeBag.

Place in microwave and heat on full power:

  • Above 750w - 30 seconds
  • 750w and below - 40 seconds 

Caution: If your microwave is greater than 1000w, you may need to reduce the time.

How often should the EyeBag be used?

We recommend using your EyeBag twice a day for the first fortnight. After this 3-4 times a week is usual but adjust according to the severity of your symptoms.

Your EyeBag should be replaced after 6 months of use.

DO NOT BURN YOURSELF. DO NOTHING WHICH WILL IGNITE YOUR EYEBAG

Instructions for Heating the EyeBag When There is no Microwave Available

If you do not have a microwave you can still use an EyeBag.
Always take care to ensure that the EyeBag is not uncomfortably hot before you apply it.
The EyeBag should be about 45 to 50 degrees C immediately after heating, just before application.
It cools to body temperature after 10 minutes or so.
The EyeBag must be warmed dry and should never be wetted.

Heating on a Conventional Radiator

Place your EyeBag on top of a warm / hot radiator
Only do this for standard water heated radiators, not convectors.
Leave the EyeBag on the Radiator for half an hour turning and shaking form time to time to obtain even and thorough warming.
Once the EyeBag is comfortably warm to the touch it can be used as described in the instruction booklet.

Heating in an Aga or Rayburn Type Oven

Place the EyeBag in a clean ovenproof container in the warming compartment of your AGA.
The oven position will depend on which model you have.
Leave the EyeBag to warm for 15 to 20 minutes.
Carefully remove from warming cabinet / oven checking the EyeBag temperature every time before putting it over your closed lids.
You can re-warm the EyeBag in this way many times over.

Heating in an Electric Oven

If you have a plate warming setting on your oven, use that. If not, set your oven to the lowest temperature which should be 50 to 60 degrees C.
Leave the EyeBag in the oven, in a clean ovenproof dish for 20 minutes or so before checking the temperature with your hands, ensuring that it is comfortably warm.
If it feels too hot, wait a minute or two and check again.

Heating in a Gas Oven

The EyeBag should NEVER be exposed to a direct flame. For this reason gas ovens are the least desirable way to heat an EyeBag.

If this is the only way of heating your EyeBag, ensure that you place it in a clean closed ovenproof container with a well fitting lid.

Put the closed container with the EyeBag inside, into the pre-heated oven at Gas mark 1 for 15 to 20 minutes.

Take care to ensure that the EyeBag is not too hot before you place it over your closed eyes.

DISCLAIMER. The EyeBag is supposed to be warmed in a microwave oven. It was never intended to be heated in other ways. However, The EyeBag Company realises that some people do not have access to a microwave and this information leaflet is provided as a guide for those people. The EyeBag Company or EyeCare Partners cannot and will not accept responsibility for any damage or injury to person or property arising from unconventional non-microwave heating of an EyeBag.

While we do not wish to deter EyeBag users from heating their EyeBags in whatever way they find most suitable, please use your judgement and avoid any method where the EyeBag risks being set alight.

DO NOT HEAT IN ANY TYPE OF IMPLEMENT THAT MIGHT CAUSE THE EYEBAG TO BE SET ON FIRE. DO NOT THEREFORE HEAT IN A BARBECUE, GRILL, FONDUE, CHIMINEA, BOILING PAN, CHARGRILL, PANINI MAKER, TOASTER, TOASTED SANDWICH MACHINE, DEEP FAT FRYER, CHIP PAN, OPEN FIRE, COAL EFFECT GAS FIRE, ELECTRIC BAR FIRE, HALOGEN HEATER, SPIT ROAST, BLOW TORCH. THIS LIST IS NOT EXHAUSTIVE.

From time to time certain areas become affected by delays in the Royal Mail network. This is usually due to a combination of staff shortages at Royal Mail  (due to sickness or self isolation) or an increase in volume of parcels eg at Christmas.  

Delays also often occur at Easter because the depots are shut on Easter Monday & Good Friday and hence post builds up.
