I’ve had my CPAP mask over a year now and generally happy with it but the one issue I have is the pressure it puts under and around my eyes. I don’t think it is from air leakage as my eyes themselves don’t feel dry, it’s around my eyes that is the problem. It increasingly feels sore, tender and swollen particularly under my eyes. Occasionally it spreads to the outer corners of my eyes and to my eyelids meaning I can’t even open them fully first thing. It then gets better throughout the day & with applying hot damp cotton wool pads.
It’s not something I’ve heard talked about much as a side effect so wondered if anyone else suffered or had any solutions? If I make my mask less tight to relieve the pressure then the straps come loose whilst I’m asleep & air escapes.
