Can I use my sleep apnea machine if I have a subconjunctival hemorrhage?

Can I use my sleep apnea machine if I have a subconjunctival hemorrhage? I’m not sure if the use of the machine will negatively impact the healing process of the eyeball.
Yes, you can use your sleep apnea (CPAP) machine. Your sleep apnea machine should have no bearing on the subconjunctival hemorrhage. However, with a CPAP machine, if the seal isn’t ideal, air can blow onto the eye, making it drier and perhaps more prone to a new subconjunctival hemorrhage.
