The plastic ply I3 not only serves to secure the inner and outer plies II, I2 together, but also prevents outward evaporation of the moisture from the inner ply II through the outer ply I2. And, additionally, of course, the ply of plastic I3 serves to give the pad a certain amount of stiffness or character, so to speak, so that When having been wetted it will tend to conform to the shape of the lid-covered eyeball and retain such shape so as not to be blown of wind. The plastic ply I3 also intercepts light rays and prevents passage of same to the inner ply II, although permitting heat generated by the light rays to be transmitted to the inner ply II. l

If the pads are used for an extended period at a time, it is preferable that they should be ,periodically wetted.

Practical use of these pads over a long period of time has demonstrated their characteristics of remaining in place even in a strong wind. And, Yas earlier mentioned herein, the use of my pads avoids leaving white marks on the face surrounded byV sun tan, as would be the case where adhesive strips or spectacle temple bars or the like are used for retaining the pad in place.

Having thus described my invention, claim is:

l. An eye shield comprising a fiexible multiple ply p-ad consisting of an outer sheet of a relatively closely woven fabric which is relatively impervious to sun rays and moisture and is heat absorptive, an inner sheet of a relatively loosely woven tufted fabric, said inner sheet being porous to permit medicament or water which has been applied to said sheet to travel therethrough to the eyelid, means securing the fabric sheets together into contiguous engagement with one another, said shield having an upper convex contour and a lower concave contour and being rounded at its respective sides, said shield when moistened being adapted to be placed on the closed eyelid and conform to the shape thereof and further adapted to be conned within the bony conformation of the orbital area whereby the edges of the pad lie substantially Within and adjacent the outline of the orbital area to thereby prevent dislodgement of the shield by air currents. Y

what I Astiiening property to the pad 2. An eye shield comprising a multiple pad consisting of an outer sheet of a relatively closely woven fabric which is relatively impervious to sun rays and moisture and is heat absorptive, an inner sheet of a relatively loosely woven tufted fabric which is porous to permit medicament or water which has been applied thereto to deposit the same on the eyelid, a layer of adhesive interposed between the outer and inner sheets to unite the same and provide a yielding stiffening property to the pad and further preventing moisture applied to the inner fabric from passing to the outer fabric layer, said shield having an upper convex contour and a lower concave contour and being rounded at its respective sides, said shield when the inner ply is moistened being adapted to be placed on the closed eyelid and conform to the shape thereof and further adapted to be confined within the bony conformation of the orbital area whereby the edges of the pad lie substantially Within and adjacent the outline of the orbital area to thereby prevent dislodgement of the shield by air currents.

3. An eye shield comprising a flexible multiple ply pad consisting of an outer sheet of velvet fabric which is relatively impervious to sun rays and moisture and is heat absorptive, an inner sheet of a relatively loosely woven heavy napped tufted fabric which is porous to permit medicament or water which has been applied thereto to deposit the same on the eyelid, a layer of adhesive interposed between the outer and inner sheets to unite the same and provide a yielding and further preventing moisture applied to the inner fabric from passing to the outer fabric layer, said shield having an upper convex contour and a lower concave contour and being rounded at its respective sides, said shield when the inner ply is moistened being adapted to be placed on the closed eyelid and conform to the shape thereof and further adapted to be confined within the bony conformation of the orbital area whereby the edges of the pad lie substantially within and adjacent the outline of the orbital area to thereby prevent dislodgement of the shield by air currents.
