J. 11, HOUSTON. BYE BATHING MASK. APPLICATION FILED JULY 22, 1910.

Patented ()01;.24,1911.

a Hue-n cer JAMES D. HOUSTON, 0F GAGE, OKLAHOMA.

EYE-BATHING MASK.

To all whom it may concern: 1

Be it known that 1, JAMES D. HOUSTON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Gage, in the county of Ellis and State of Oklahoma, have invented certain new and useful Improyements in Eye-BathingMasks, of which the following is a specification.

My invention relates to an improvement in masks for washing or bathing eyes, and the object is to providemeans whereby the liquidcan be brought into contact with the eyes for washing them, and at the same time cause any air which may be beneath the mask and around the eyes to be forced out of the way by the incoming liquid, so that the eyes will be thoroughly treated by the solution.

The invention consists in certain novel features of construction and combinations of parts which will be hereinafter fully described and pointed out in the claims.

In the accompanying drawings :Figure l is a view in front elevation of the inven- Figs. 3 and4 are sectional views.

A represents the body of the mask, which I is provided with pockets 1, 1, which are received over the eyes, and'2, 2,-are bands connected to the body, which are connected together at their ends at the back of the head by a hook 3 for holding the mask in position upon the wearer. A passage 4 connects the'pockets 1, 1, whereby the solution or liquid received in the pockets would have free circulation for thoroughly cleansing the eyes.

Connected to the pockets are bulbs 5, 5, which bulbs are adapted to receive the solution or liquid to be injected into the pockets for treatin the eyes. Upon the compression of the iulbs, the liquid is discharged into the pockets and upon the eye, each pocket being provided with a bulb. Connected to the mask along one edge thereof, is a tube 6, and connected to the tube is a sack 7, which is adapted to receive the air Specification of Letters Patent. Application fi1cd. 3'uly 22, 1910. Serial No. 573,333.

the incoming liquid. The sack 7 is deflated before applying the pockets over the eyes and as itis released the air in the pockets fills the space created-by its expanslon.

When it is necessary to have the head of the person being treated in a reclining position, the tube 6, which allows the air to be discharged from the'pockets of the mask, must be closed, to prevent the liquid from entering the sack 7. 'I have provided a clasp 8 which will be compressed when the head is in a recliningposition, for closing the tube 6 to prevent the liquid from entering the sack 7 An inflated ridge 1 0 is formed along the edge and ends of the body of the mask, whereby the mask will conform to the varying contours of a face, forming a closure to prevent the liquid or solution in the pockets from discharging along the edges of the pockets onto the face of the person treated.

Having fully described my invention, what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. An eye-mask comprising a body having eye pockets, a channel formed in the body connecting the eye pockets, and bulbs connected to the eye pockets for discharging liquid thereto, and means whereby the air is permitted to discharge from the pockets.

2. An eye-mask comprising a body having an inflated ridge for conforming the mask to the face of the wearer, eye pockets formed in the body, and bulbs connected to the eye ockets for introducing liquid into the poo ets for cleansing the eyes, and means whereby the air is permitted to discharge from the pockets.

In testimony whereof I afiix my signa-.

ture, in the presence of two witnesses.

JAMES D. HOUSTON. Witnesses:

T. B. HOWARD, JENNIE V. PINER.
