Lately I’ve been suffering from dry eyes. I believe this is from CPAP air mask leaks around my nose irritating my eyes with a flow of air for hours at a time.
I use a face mask that covers mouth and nose. I can feel and hear leaks often during the night that are bad enough to wake me up at times. I’ve tried various combinations of mask strap tightness to no avail. CPAP pressure is at 14.
I’ve also tried various eye masks which are difficult to fit properly under the CPAP nose bridge.
During the day I suffer from dry, itchy eyelid skin and bloodshot, watery eyes. Its awful. Eyedrops don’t seem to help much. Eye gel application before bedtime does seem to help.
Does anyone else suffer from dry eyes? What did you do about it. I’m at my wits end.
