The ingenious OptivizorTM is designed specifically to protect the eyes after surgery or trauma to the eyes or face. In addition to providing excellent protection to the eyes and face after surgery, the OptivizorTM also works for general eye protection as it causes no discomfort or obstruction for the dog during use. Features •The OptivizorTM is made from clear soft PVC the vizor is produced flat, and when assembled creates a contoured shape to fit your dogs features. It is assembled by the Vets when needed, using the easy assembly instructions. •The OptivizorTM is available in a range of five sizes from Toy, Small, Small/Medium, Medium and Large •The design incorporates a head rest which cushions and allows space between the OptivizorTM and the animals face allowing for greater air flow and comfort. •Provision has been made to allow for adjustment by using the side straps which allow for an increase in head length and the chin strap can be adjusted to allow for greater head width. •The Peel off lines on the snout of the OptivizorTM have been incorporated as an adjustment means for animals with a shorter snout. (Simply snip and peel off). •The OptivizorTM has been designed to accommodate dogs with a Occipital Bone of Prominence •The OptivizorTM has been designed to accommodate an easy one step process for medicating the patient. The chin strap can be undone and the OptivizorTM will slide over the animals head without completely being removed. Medication can then be easily administered. •An advantage of the OptivizorTM over the existing E Collar is the patients ears are outside the vizor and therefore eliminates the possibility of ear and yeast infection due to moisture. •The OptivizorTM also eliminates the possibility of disorientation to the patient after eye surgery due to the echo effect caused by the existing E collar. •The OptivizorTM is protected by patent (patent number US 7,543,551 B2)

Research led me to this face/eye protector for my recently R eye blinded dog to help prevent bumping into things and keep him from scratching during healing. A great idea and a great product...HOWEVER...when you order...pay close attention to the weight chart which shows overlap between sizes!!! Especially between X-lg, Lg, and Med. My dog's head measured for X-Lg, but weight was squarely in the Lg category...Charts recommended sizing down. Ordered a Lg. However, this was too large! Looking back at weight charts again, I noticed the weight overlap between Med and Lg, and found that he actually needed a Med because he has a slight build. Moral of the story: GO BY WEIGHT, NOT LENGTH if your dog as a slender build! You can always cut away along the pre-scored nose area to compensate for length.
I thought this Optivizor would be a huge relief from the plastic cone following his eye surgery....it didn't work. He managed to get this off 3 times in the first day. A 4th time the next day in the car no less. Luckily I put the cone back on at night when I couldn't watch him or he would have ripped the stitches open. The only way to keep the Optivizor on would have been to make the velcro so tight around his next he couldn't get it off but there was no way I was going to do that. I suppose it would be great for dogs that are less irritated by things on their head, otherwise no. Perhaps the next generation will have straps to attach to their normal collar instead of just the velcro built in,
I purchased this item for my dog to use following surgery to remove a growth from his eyelid. The item was received much faster than expected despite not being eligible for Prime shipping. It was a little awkward to assemble but I eventually got it right. It fits well and is doing a fantastic job of keeping my dog from pulling out his stitches. He was sent him from the vet with a giant e-collar/cone that we kept on for the first night. With the cone, he walk into walls, chairs, the garbage can, door frames etc, knocked things off of shelves & tables and was very frustrated. He was miserable and could not get comfortable. The next day, we put the Optivizor on him and he was so much happier. He no longer walked into things and was so much more relaxed. The adjustablility is nice - while he is defintely a large dog at 80lbs+, he does have kind of a small head so we used the shortest setting and trimmed the visor using the score marks already present. The only thing I can say that would...
