Actually, I tried the scarf around the eyes and it would make me look not so puffy in the morning. I don’t know what to do to keep it on during the night. Just be sure not to tie it too tight because that can cause irritation to your eyes. Also, I find that when I steam my face (throw a towel over my head over steam water) for 5-10 min and then apply frozen pak over my eyes………what a difference!!!! Also, I try to apply a lot of eye cream because I’m always touching my eyes. It seems to work well with me…….give it a try. Good luck!AnonymousNovember 26, 1996 at 4:56 pmPost count: 93172
My poor little eyelids can’t seem to close over my bulging eyes these days!
I tried those salves – Yuck! I’ve tried tons of drops – No good, except
during the day.
I found an old airline mask – you know, so you can sleep on the plane when
it is light outside – and it works great!!! My eyes stay closed overnight,
they don’t dry out, and I look normal in the morning… not like a bulgy-eyed
I highly recommend this solution to anyone who’s having overnight troubles with
their eyes. Use the mask, or try a silk scarf! But, I also have a question…
How can I get myself to stop taking the mask off in the middle of the night?
Most nights it stays on, but many times I wake up only to find myself puffy-eyed
and the mask is on the floor, or propped up on my forehead!!

Hi Lisa! I, too, would wake up many a morning to find my “mask” lying near my pillow or next to my bed on the floor. It’s certainly hard to control the hand’s action while in deep sleep – I always figured that it must of been a good dream!
During my earlier years of eye trouble I would use an eye lubricant and tape my eyes shut at night with sensitive first aid tape. I never liked the taping, but I never took off the tape in my sleep. After my surgeries I tied a cotton bandana over my eyes to keep them moist – that’s when my mask removal troubles started. I have no suggestions, except trying the eye taping method. It relieved the soreness, redness, and itchiness for me in the morning.
Sweet dreams, Debby
