Don't know if this will help anyone, but my dr gave me a procedure to use when taping - he said that anyone who tapes their eye ought to do it this way: pull the outside corner of the eye to the outside until the eye is pulled closed. THEN place the tape diagonally (of all things!) across both eyelids from the inside on the top lid towards the outside on the bottom. I no longer have eye issues, but this worked very well for me.
Hope that made sense, and maybe can be helpful...
