  • Publication number: 20210100992
    Abstract: A method of making a face mask for a face of a human user can include determining a lower eye region bound and determining an upper eye region bound by locating an upper bound of the eyeball as determined by a peak point of an arc of concavity in an upper eyelid of the at least one eye when the eye is closed. The method can also include setting a first anchor point about 0 mm to about 10 mm below the lower eye region bound, and setting a second anchor point about 0 mm to about 10 mm above the upper eye region bound; and defining at least one eye opening for a face mask having first edge that intersects the first anchor point and a second edge that intersects the second anchor point.
