Kay Fun Patches are fabric eye patches for the treatment of lazy eye syndrome with children. They are produced by Kay Pictures Ltd, a family business set up by practicing orthoptist Hazel Kay in 1984.
Kay Pictures Ltd designs orthoptic equipment and sells around the world, principally the Kay Picture Test as a means of testing the eyesight of pre-school children. We also offer our range of eye patches for the treatment of amblyopia and other orthoptic equipment direct to professionals and re-sellers worldwide.
About Our Patches
All our patches are lovingly made entirely in the UK to aid the treatment of lazy eye (amblyopia) with children. Their unique shape and construction has been perfected to ensure that each eye patch fits well, feels good and looks amazing. All our fabric patches are washable and re-reusable, safe and effective. They are a cost-effective alternative to disposable patches.
Fun Patches are made from layers of breathable fabric with an inner cushioned layer to retain their shape and add softness. The patches attach easily to any glasses and follow the facial contours ensuring proper occlusion. The inner fabric is certified as safe against the skin, the outer fabric is printed using chemical-free dyes.
Eye Patches are designed to offer the same fun element to patch wearing for those children needing amblyopia treatment who don’t wear glasses. These patches are a kinder alternative to sticky patches made from safe, washable fabric with a soft inner blackout layer. The elastic is 8mm wide and very stretchy to keep the eye patch in place without feeling tight.
Our online shop offers a selection of colourful designs to suit any boy or girl. We regularly update and change our designs.
Our unique design of patch is a registered community design with the Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (OHIM) – Design number: 002127225-0001. It is also registered with the Intellectual Property Office – Registration: 4014489.
All Kay Fun Patches are CE marked and registered as a medical device with The EU Medical Devices Directive.
