How can I treat my dry eye that’s being caused by my CPAP mask for sleep apnea?
SEP 21, 2015
I have sleep apnea and wear a CPAP mask every night to bed. Since I’ve been using the mask I’ve been having trouble with dry eyes. Do you know of any way around this side effect?
It is possible that the CPAP is causing eye drying at night. You may want to use a non-prescription ocular lubricant gel or gel drop in the eyes before bedtime. You can also use a non-prescription ocular lubricant ointment which may cause some blurring but will last longer.
