However, I think my eyes may be a bit drier now with cpap, though I don't think I'm getting a lot of leaks around the eyes...?

I did have flaky skin on my eyelid this morning and that never happened prior to cpap.

Eyedrops I use currently are OTC allergy drops (up to twice a day) and moisturizing RHOTO? drops (once or twice a day).

Neither does a fabulous job though. Eyes still are always bloodshot and burn often.

Anyone else have dry eye problem? Have you found an incredible product that truly helps?

It could also be your age. I am 65+ and recently my doc said I have dry eyes and gave me drops sample. Dry eye causes blurry vision. I do not see any big difference but I am also in early stage cataracts. I saw doc last yr and had same c-pap he did not tell me I had dry eye then. I might ask for pres eye drops soon. My distance vision is still not good and I can't read street names very well til I am close. Old Age is no fun! I did not mention my c-pap though it is in my records. It could be however partially c-pap leaks. When I wake it seems snug but does creep up the back of my head a bit. Keep up with replacing worn pillows etc.
