Thomas Leighton's mother of eyepatches

General Chang wearing an eyepatch

An eyepatch was a small pad that was often worn to cover a lost or damaged eye.

Klingon General Chang wore an eyepatch over his left eye until his death in 2293. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In Doctor Julian Bashir's holoprogram Julian Bashir, Secret Agent, the character of Falcon wore a patch, with the image of a falcon's head on it, over his left eye. After a transporter accident in 2372, Chief Miles O'Brien assumed Falcon's identity, including eye patch. (DS9: "Our Man Bashir")

In 2373, during an away mission on the Takarian homeworld, Commander Chakotay and Lieutenant Tom Paris met a Takarian bard who wore an eyepatch. The bard, who often sang the Song of the Sages, wore it to elicit sympathy claiming he needed money in order to buy ointment for his eye. His ruse was discovered when Lieutenant Paris saw that his patch had changed places during a second meeting. (VOY: "False Profits")

Picard with an eyepatch

Jean-Luc Picard donned an eyepatch as part of an "appropriately sinister" disguise on a mission to Freecloud. (PIC: "Stardust City Rag")

A Klingon wearing an eyepatch appears in the comic book "Epic Proportions".
In Star Trek Online, the "Klingon Academy uniform" is an outfit available for purchase which includes an eyepatch for both Federation and Klingon characters.
