Floppy/droopy eyelids despite cpap treatment
#21
Good luck Visitor. Let us know how that mask works for you.

Give it some time, that's a big change from the P10, but if it solves the problem, it's worth
pursuing.

because of my lip leaks, eye leaks, and fighting with the FFM (I'm using the Nuance right now because of it), I've often considered the Fit Life. I look forward to hearing/reading how it goes for you.

Ok, I wrote the supplier to order it and will report back when I'm settled in with this new mask. Talk about going from one extreme to the other. But worth a try indeed.

I am not sure if this will be of any help or not but i initially was using a wisp nasal mask at a constant pressure. After experimenting with a dream weaver for couple days with the auto set function enabled it became painfully obvious that my eyes were black, sunken and dropping in the morning. Rather hideous and unusual to say the least. I am not sure if what we are experiencing is related but it has me worried enough to switch back to the wisp.

I think you can rule out neurological. Not sure how that got in the mix when the obvious variable to be considered is the Cpap usage

floppy eye lid syndrome , 95% of people with this condition have osa. It normally affects the eye pts sleeps on, example you sleep on your left side , left side of face on pillow, that eye is affected more. If you sleep on both sides we'll both sides are affected.
