The bandage comprises a body portion 10 of sufficient area to cover either the human eye or the ear, there being spaced parallel straps 11 extending from the body portion at one side and a single strap 12 extending from the other side and of approximately the width 5 of the straps 11 combined. The body portion at the side from which the strap 12 extends is out at an angle as indicated at 14; mainly to prevent interference with the nose when the bandage is applied to the eye.

width of the single strap equalling the con1- bined width of the parallel straps.

3. A bandage having a body portion of a width to cover the eye or ear of the user, a

single strap arranged at one end of the body portion and in continuation of the upper edge for extension part-Way around the head, and spaced parallel straps at the other end of the body portion and arranged in continuation of the upper and lower edges thereof, said parallel straps extending around the head in the other direction to meet the single strap and When passing the ear to be arranged respectively above and below the same, the Width of the single strap equalling the combined Width of the parallel straps, the bandage being of multiple ply secured together throughout the edges of the body portion and the side edges and ends of the straps.
