Abstract (en)

A structure that prevents leakage of an eyewash liquid even if a swimming goggle type eyecup is used to fit the periphery of the eye with the user's face up. The cup 10 for washing user's eye constructed of a peripheral wall 4 and a bottom wall 5 connected to the bottom portion of the peripheral wall 4. An eye contacting peripheral edge part 1 is a swimming goggle type and is able to be made to closely fit the user's eye socket. When the eyecup is used, a peak-to-peak plane 26 being parallel to the bottom wall 5 of the eyecup 10 becomes parallel to a relative-to-face inclined plane 24. If a force F is applied perpendicularly to the bottom wall 5, then the force F is uniformly applied to the periphery of the eye socket to make the eyecup 10 closely and uniformly fit the eye socket. <IMAGE>
