Dry Eye and Sleep Apnea

Sleep Apnea is on the rise.  Many patients are diagnosed with Sleep Apnea.  The treatment is often a CPAC machine which supplies oxygen to the patient while they are sleeping.  The CPAP often involves a "mask" that the patient wears at night while sleeping.  This mask often contributes to dryness to eyes and symptoms such as stinging, itching, burning and tearing of the eyes.

If you are treated for sleep apnea and experience discomfort of the eyes please call the office.  Our staff will be happy to discuss treatment optons.

Thank you
