    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.

    I cried much needed moisturizing tears

    This stuff is amazing. It’s not cheap, but I’m never turning back. I’ve tried every tape, including transpore tape, which I will probably still use for some taping tricks BUT this stuff is superior. Doesn’t hurt or irritate my poor skin, actually felt moisturing when I removed the first time. It’s magical. Make sure your eye area is clean and if you use an eye ointment that could seep out a little and affect the adherence but it’s just so so good. I can’t recommend enough.

    Makes my sleep cofortable

    I love this tape. I have one paralyzed eye, and I have to tape it shut at night. I've tried a lot of different tapes and taping methods over about 17 years now, but this tape is the very best. I was using Nex-Care tape, but it never felt secure, and it was very painful to take it off in the morning--hard on delicate skin. But Meptac Silicone tape is lovely. It holds my eye more securely, and taking it off in the morning is much easier. When I tape it at night I feel very relaxed and grateful for this new tape. I appreciate so much what Rebecca and the team do for those of us with dry eye and other eye problems. Bless you!

    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.
