Fly mask problems

My mare has a lot of pink skin. In the summer she is covered from head to toe in fly gear, the problem is that fly masks make her eyes water really bad. She already has inflammation of the pink tissue around her eyeball, and is on a steroid cream for that. The inflammation makes her eyes water and in the winter I gave her a break from her fly mask. Now with spring and flies the fly mask is back on. Does anybody have any suggestions of fly masks that will make her eyes water less? I currently use a Kensington because she is really hard on her clothes.

Research Guardian Masks. They were developed for horses with UVeitis and make your horse look like he has bug eyes but they sit off the eye area. They are not cheap but maybe you could find a used one. The horse in my avatar is wearing his.

Just looked them up...does kind of make the horse look like an alien, or somebody preparing for nuclear war! And, YIKES, they are expensive. Wonder if there are any cheap knock offs that still work well.

Put a post on here or Craigslist to see if anyone has one they want to sell. If I find another one, I'll get back to you.
