Cataract eye shield

Following cataract surgery, I was provided a plastic eye shield to wear at night, and some tape. But no diagram or instructions on how it is supposed to fit on my face. Does the "lip" on one side of the round shield go towards the ear, towards the nose, or up or down? It doesn't fit my face closely no matter which way I turn it. I'm also wondering why a device with a headband hasn't been invented?

Never mind, my husband said it had to point towards my nose, and I survived the night, heh.
