EYE PATCH. APPLICATION FILED AUG-5. I913.

Patented Nov. 23, 1915 COLUMBIA PLANOGRAPH 00.. WASHINGTON. n. c.

IDA R. LUSH, OF NEW YORK, N. Y.

EYE-PATCH.

Application filed August 5, 1913. Serial No. 783,018.

' To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, IDA 1t. LUsir, a citizen of the United States, and a resident of New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Eye Patches, of which the following is a speci fication.

The invention relates to eye-patches of the character to be applied over the eye for excluding light and dust therefrom and to hold a dressing customarily prescribed by a physician for the treatment or cure of some trouble with the eye.

Eye-patches of various kinds have heretofore been used, and many of these have been objectionable on account of their ap pearance, expense, failure to neatly and snugly lit the face around the eye and general inapplicability for appropriately receiving the various dressings a physic1an or surgeon may desire held in close relatlon to .the eye. r

The eye-patch of my invention seeks to overcome objections heretofore existing to many kinds of eye-patches and to provide an eye-patch of comparatively inexpensive character but which shall be neat in appear"v ance, snugly fit the face around the eye and appropriately subserve the requirements of physicians and surgeons with respect to receiving dressings and holding the same against the eye.

The eye-patch of my. invention is of particular edge outline so as to be capable of snugly fitting the face around the eye, and my eye-patch is offlexible material, preferably of buckram,,bound at its edges by a soft silk or other tape, so as to become readily adaptableto faces difiering. in physical formations. The buckram portion of my eye-patch is in one integral piece cut out in the form of a" blank and transversely slit so that its side and middle portions may, about in line with the meeting line of the eyelids, be caused by theoverlapping' of the portions adjacent to the slits, to set forwardly so as to stand out from the eye and form an adequate chamber into Which the dressings, providedby a doctor or surgeon, may be placed for application to the eye.

The invention 'will .be. fully understood from the detailed description hereinafter presented, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, in which:

' Figure 1 represents the head portion of a person with the eye-patch of my inventionapplied over one of the eyes; Fig. 2 is a front elevation, partly broken away in respect-of the securing tapes, of my eyepatch; F1g. 8 is a vertical section, partly broken away, through the same, on the dotted line 3-3 of Fig. 2; Fig. 4 is a transverse section, partly broken away, through the same on the dotted line 47-4: of Fig. 2; Fig. 5 is a detached elevation of the blank of buckram or other material prepared for the formation of the body of the eye-patch; Fig. 6 is a View corresponding with Fig. 2, but showing a reversal of the manner of overlapping those portions of the body of the eye-patch adjacent to the transverse or side slits therein, Figs. 1, 2 and 3 illustrating the over lapping of those portions of the body of the patch below the slits upon the outer side of those portions of the body of the eye-patch above the slits, while Fig. 6 illustrates the underlapping of those portions of the body of the patch below the slits with relation to those portions of the body of the patch immediately above the slits.

In the drawings, 10 designates the eye patch as a whole, this eye-patch comprising a body portion 11, a binding 12 sewed along the edges of said body portion, and the tapes 14 or the like by means of which the patch may be secured to the head, with the eyepatch concealing one of the eyes.

The body portion 11 of the eye-patch is formed from a blank of the. outline shown in Fig. 5, this blank being preferably of buckram or equivalent material and having the edge outline shown in Fig. 5 and the side slits 15 which extend transversely of the blank and project inwardly from the side edges thereof to. a suflicient extent to meet the purpose when the portions of the blank adjacent to said slits are overlapped, of throwing or setting the middle portions of the blank forwardly whereby at the rear side of the blank a proper chamber is formed to receive the dressing provided by a physician.

The blank, which I number 16, comprises an upper portion 17 and a lower portion 18, these" portions being integral but separated at their. adjoining side parts by the slits 15. The upper portion 17 has a comparatively broad curved upper edge, as at 19, extending downwardly to the slits 15, and the lower portion 18 has a more pronounced or shorter curve at its lower part, as aitQO, from which the side edges of said lower part expoints 21 which are offset outwardly-from tend outwardly on gently curved lines to the of the portions 18. to match-the outer edgesofthe portion 17 so that the eye-patch in itsbody portion shall be of uniform edge 7 outline,.and thereupon Tapply the binding 12 by sewing, this binding holding the por tion 11 in proper final condition for use and also serving as a finish for the edges of said body portion and as a convenient surface to .engage the face of the wearer above and below and at the o a aosite sides of the eye. In

order to secure the eye-patch in position upon the face of-the patient I sew to the opposite side edges of the eye-patch the tapes or the like 14: which also further, at their innerends, serve to bind the overlapped parts of the body 11 in rigid relation to each other, as shown in. Fig. 2.

' The act'of overlapping the adjacent parts of the body 11 along the line of the slits 15 results in thepbulging outwardly of said body about along the meeting line of the eye-lids and in the creation of an adequate chamber, as shown in Figs. 3 and 41, to receive" the dressing provided by a physician or surgeon and holding the same close against and in proper relation to the eye. The blank shown m Fig. 5, after having been cut from a flat sheet, is thus overlapped in those parts adjacent to the transverse or I 1 body 11 by the overlapping horizontal slits 15 and then bound by the binding 12, with which the tapes or other securing means it are sewed in position preferably at the overlapped portions of the body 11, so that the sewing of the tapes 14 in position may, when desired, aid in the very firm. securing of said overlapped portions in due relation to each other and in the preservation'of the form given to the of the parts thereof adjacent to the slits 15.

The body 11 isof flexible material, as black buckram, and the binding 12 may be of silk or other soft material, and the outline of the finished eye-patch is of considerablemoment in securing comfort, efliciency in use, and a neat appearance. It will be observedon reference to Figs. 1 and 2 that in accordance with my construction the upper edge portions of the eye-patch are broad and on gently curved lines, while the lower portions of the eye-patch are also curved but onmore abrupt lines so that the lower portion of the eye patch is considerably narrowerthan the upper'portion thereof, all this being to enable the proper close appllcation :of the upper portions of the dinary facial characteristics.

considerably below the upper end of the eyepatch and are secured to the eye-patch only slightly above the transverse center thereof, and this I deem of importance in the proper application of the eye-patch to the eye of the patient. The overlapping of the adjacent portions of the body 11 at the slits 15 is of prime importance, since thereby the sides of said body are bulged forwardly and along the transverse middle portion of the eye-patch said body is likewise bulged forwardly along a transverse line with the result that I secure a very adequate chamber within the rear side of the eye-patch for holding a dressing or the like without disturbing my initial outline for the patch shown in Fig. 2, whereby the patch is adapted to fit around the eye of all usual patients and act with comfort and efliciency and at the same time present a neat appearance.

In Fig. 6 I illustrate what may be called a modification of the invention, there being no difference between the construction shown in Fig. 6 and that shown in Fig. 2 except that the parts of the lower portion 18 of the blank adjacent to the slits 15 are overlapped by, instead of overlapping, the parts of the upper portion 17 of the blank adjacent to the slits 15, the entire construction remaining the same with the exception that the adjacent parts of the portions 17, 18 along the slits 15 are reversed with respect to their being lapped one with relation to the other, the edges of the portion 17 along the slits 15 being, in Fig. 2, extended downwardly behind adjacent parts of the lower portion 18, while in Fig. 6 said edges are extended downwardly at the outer side of the adjacent parts of the portion 18, as will be clearly understood by reference to Figs. 2 and 6;

One advantage in forming the transverse slits 15 in the blank 16 is to permit the ready overlapping of segmental portions of the blank at the sides thereof and enable the body portion of the patch to be formed with only two layersof material at its overlapped portions. The body portion 11 may be formed from the blank without said blank having'the slits 15, but under such conditions the overlapped side portions of the blank could not be so readily formed and impairing the appearance of the eye-patch and rendering the same more troublesome to manufacture and bulky. I therefore very greatly prefer to form the slits 15 in the blank 16, but do not desire in every instance to confine my invention wholly t0 the presence of said slits.

l/Vhat I claim as my invention and desire to secure by Letters-Patent, is:

1. An eye-patch having a body of uniform edge outline with a binding sewed along said edge, said body comprising an upper portion having a broadly curved edge extending down to a substantial extent on the sides of said patch, a lower portion having a more abruptly curved edge extending upwardly along the sides of said portion and meeting the downwardly curved side edge of the upper portion, transversely overlapped side portion setting the middle part of said body forwardly, and securing-tapes fastened to the sides of said body.

2. An eye-patch having a body of uniform edge outline with a binding sewed along said edge, said body comprising an upper portion having a broadly curved edge extending down to a substantial extent on the sides of said patch, a lower portion having a more abruptly curved edge extending up wardly along the sides of said portion and meeting the downwardly curved side edges of the upper portion, transversely overlapped side portions setting the middle part of said body forwardly, and securing-tapes fastened to the sides of said body, said body being transversely slit at its sides so that said overlapped portions may present only two thicknesses of material.

3. An eye-patch having a body of uniform edge outline with a binding sewed along said edge, said body comprising an upper portion having a broadly curved edge extending down to a substantial extent on the sides of said patch, a lower portion having a more abruptly curved edge extending upwardly along the sides of said portion and meeting the downwardly curved side edges of the upper portion, transversely overlapped side portions setting the middle part of said body forwardly, and securing-tapes fastened at their inner ends by sewing to the side of said body at said overlapped portions.

4. An eye-patch having a body formed from a blank of flexible fabric having broadly curved top and side edges to its upper portion and a more abruptly curved edge to its lower portion, said fabric being slit transversely at opposite sides and at the slits overlapped setting said body forwardly at its transverse middle portion, a binding sewed along the edge of said body, and securing-tapes fastened to the sides of said body, said body having curved uniform edges, and the blank at the lower side of the slits being initially wider than at the upper side of the slits, thus enabling the said body at its overlapped portions to present uniform edges for the binding.

Signed at New York city, in the county of New York and State of New York, this 4th day of August A. D. 1913. I
