1. A pad for treating eye conditions comprising:

  • a multipart container having an impermeable outer membrane sized to fit generally within a single peri orbital region without extending to the rest of the face and sufficiently flexible to mold to the eye within the peri orbital region;

    a first chemical in a first storage area in the multipart container;

    a second chemical in a second storage area in the multipart container, the first and second chemicals selected to have an exothermic reaction when mixed for producing a temperature suitable for treating eye conditions, the exothermic reaction providing the suitable temperature for a period of time suitable for treating eye conditions; and

    an inner membrane for initially separating the first and second chemicals, the inner membrane being renderable permeable, without penetration of the impermeable outer membrane, to permit mixing the first and second chemicals to cause the exothermic reaction.
