I use the Simplus to and find that if it leaks a bit from the top I just pull up slightly on both sides of the silicon to re-seat it and that takes care of it. It does like to be low on the nose but I tend to put it up higher and do the finger pull to get it to seal. Works for me, and I never get dry eyes from it.
The above is my opinion. It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.
I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.
Everything put together sooner or later falls apart.
Thanks for the feedback, I'll give the Remzz a go.
The air is escaping up the side of the nose, not from the vent. The vent doesn't bother me at all though SWMBO complains about it blowing on her.
I prefer to avoid eye drops of any kind unless it's absolutely necessary. If I can control the leaks then I shouldn't need the drops, but thanks for the suggestion.

I've switched to the Simplus and must use a liner to reduce leaking into my eyes, and mask fluttering/trumpeting.
The RemZzz instructions say to gently pull on the liner after the mask is installed, to cause the liner to curl away from the face and eyes. I think this works well, but I find it causes the liner to be too stretched out to reuse the next day.
I like to reuse the liner for a week or two, so I am careful not to stretch out the liner at all. When reusing the liner, it will have curled a little on its own, and I put on the liner so the part on my nose curls outward, away from my eyes.
(While on my back with my mouth slightly open, I put on the liner to cover my nose bridge and lower lip first, and then lower the mask onto my face and strap up.)
