Puffy Eyes After Using The CPAP Machine

I have noticed a few times after using the cpap machine that I wake up with puffy eyes. Is there something I can do about this? and why is it happening?

Answer


If you wake up with puffy eyes, it means that the air from your mask is probably leaking into or around your eyes. Another cause can be the pressure of the mask on your face.

The periorbital puffiness indicate that your body is trying to protect your eyes from the dry air leaked from your CPAP mask.

To prevent this problem in the future, you will need to try to adjust your mask to stop the air leaks.

The nasal pillows are less likely to leak, and if they do leak, it will be less into your eyes.

And I will give you some interesting articles which should help you understand your eyes problem and how to solve it (only for CPAP users):

I hope it helps. Don't be afraid to comment back.

Puffy Eyes...?

Turn up the humidifier that's on your CPAP machine! I replaced the nose pillow and turned the humidifier up to the max and I am not waking up with puffy eyes anymore!
