Anyway, I discussed this in another thread a while back. Lemme see if I can find it. I think I linked to some articles in it.

Found it.

Very interesting thread. Looks like you have been dealing with this issue for a while. I guess I'll just relax and see the eye doctor every 3 months and stop worrying. Like you I have no damage yet and they are "watching and waiting." She gave me some drops for dryness as occasionally the Nano will leak a bit when I've moved in my sleep.

there are plugs that can be put in your tear ducts to keep your eyes moist. I don't know if it will help with the pressure issues though.

Lukie, mention it to your doc and make sure they know you use a CPAP. I remind mine each time I have the readings taken because you know they don't read your file beforehand.

He nods and says "yes, that's right" and makes another note about it to himself.
