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)

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.

Gentle yet Effective

I purchased this tape for use with eyes and continue to use it with eyes on occasion. Currently I use eye goggles for my eyes. The tape is gentle and yet holds the eye shut.

Recently I have used it to keep my mouth shut while using a C-pap machine with a full face mask. It prevents aerophegia (swallowing air). Also the tape can be reused if you take it off for awhile and stick the edge to something clean and allow any moisture to dry. (For example if I get up and take a medication) This is the best quality tape by far that I have found.
