An eye patch is a piece of fabric or other material that you wear over your eye. It blocks vision in one eye and treats some vision problems.
Eye patches cover your eye, so they’re a great way to protect your eye after surgery or other procedures.
Wearing an eye patch can protect your eye, giving it time to heal.
Eye patches for kids are a common treatment for some eye conditions, like amblyopia, also called Lazy Eys.
Sometimes, doctors recommend an eye patch for strabismus. Also called squint.
An eye patch can also treat double vision (diplopia).
