Where to get a good eyepatch for daily use in a professional environment?

This has come up on the green before, but with no very good answer, so I'm trying again. I now need to wear an eyepatch, due to an internal condition in one eye that is more uncomfortable when it's exposed to light. The eye itself looks perfectly normal.
I've tried various models bought online, but none is very good. Silicone ones get too clammy and don't make a good light seal around the edges, others protrude too much to let me wear glasses (which I must do) or are irritating where they don't fit very well. Most of the eyepatches out there seem to be comedy or costume ones, which is fine if you want that, but I need something that will be part of my everyday life. I don't really have the sort of job where I could sport the Hello Kitty.
I'm quite prepared to go the custom route, if I can find it.
