    Description (by Rebecca)

    My favorite tape - hands down. Absolutely worth the extra cost. When I need to tape a lid down, I apply one strip of the wider type vertically, pressing down the top downwards and removing it top down as well. Obviously not suitable for those with silicone allergy, but for the rest of us, it's about as eyelid/eyelash friendly as a tape can get.

     

    Please note that there are a variety of tape application approaches. Vertical does not work for everyone! Believe it or not there are even youtube videos on the subject. Experiment till you find the method that seals your lids the most effectively.

    Description (from the manufacturer's literature)

    Molnlycke Mepitac Soft Silicone Tape is a highly conformable, easily applicable, and easily removable medical tape.

    Superlative

    Long story short - my right eye must be taped shut except when putting in drops (I'm on an 8 week course of Oxervate) . I tried various tapes and patches - with the attendant problems of sore eye lids, adhering poorly. A search led me to Dry Eye, and after a discussion of the best tapes, and even being told that I could get it for less money elsewhere, I ordered Mepitac.... FANTASTIC.

    Thank you Rebecca!

    I've tried and tried to find the right tape for my eyes to no avail. I've tried various medical tapes that my doctors have recommended, but they were too rough and would rip my skin. I've tried the Eyeloccs, and although they do not aggravate my skin as much after I taper off the adhesive a few times, it still can leave my eyelids feeling a little raw. But I read Rebecca's recommendation on the Mepitac Soft Silicone Tape, and her saying it's one of the best she's tried convinced me to try them out as well. And they are amazing! I do not have to taper the adhesive whatsoever. It sticks on well to the eyelids, but comes off so silky smooth. It's ridiculous how well this tape works, and how it does not aggravate my eye lids at all. I am so glad this item was put on the DryEyeShop, because I was losing hope on finding a tape that would work for me. I love it so much I've already recommended them to my dry eye doctor.

    THANK YOU!!!

    THANKS REBECCA!

    I learned about this tape while watching one of Rebecca's U-tube videos describing various products for keeping lids shut at night. As the other users have mentioned, it holds the lid secure yet removes gently in the morning. I can lift this tape during the night and it will stick and hold until morning. I have tried many, many other tapes that don't have the gentleness, (flexible around the lid, not poking or scratchy at all) yet ability to hold the lid. Rebecca mentioned that it is not inexpensive, however, I would argue that you can cut your piece of tape as necessary to fit hold your eye shut which is approximately 1" in my case which comes to $0.35/wear - less if you subscribe.

    I would highly recommend this product and recommend watching Rebecca's videos if you are new to the Dry Eye community. I have learned more here than from my dry eye specialist!

    Nice tape

    This tape is so much better than others i've tried. When i'm ready to remove it, It comes off so easily without pulling at skin. Incredibly gentle . It stays on all night but is comfortable and so easy to come off. I haven't yet tried the other products i bought at the dry eye shop but i'm very impressed with this tape. I highly recommend this.
