Masks & eye glasses
Are any of you successfully using a bipap and eye glasses for daytime breathing?

What sort of mask?

RE: Masks & eye glasses
There's a lot of masks now that allow for the wearing of glasses.

Most nasal pillows will. I don't think the nasal mask ones with the forehead bridge thing would, though. Full face masks would work with glasses as long as it didn't come up too high.

But, for good sleep hygiene, you shouldn't be reading in bed anyway.

Oh, sorry. That's what I get for skimming.

Your DME should have some masks you can view and try on. You can also check online at some of the online DMEs. Many of the mask write ups will say "and you can wear your glasses!".

Out of curiosity, why are you using your CPAP during the day without the intention of sleeping?

RE: Masks & eye glasses
My Swift FX nasal pillow mask doesn't interfere with glasses.

I was able to wear glasses with my ComfortGel nasal mask, but that varies from person to person and glasses type. It did interfere a little. With the CG mask, I had to put on the glasses first, and had to remove the mask to remove the glasses.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.

and the eye glasses part of your question?

As I posted earlier, I use VPAP and also use the wisp nasal mask.

Not sure how to respond to the part about eye glasses though.

RE: Masks & eye glasses
The ResMed Quattro FX (note: not Mirage Quattro nor Quattro Air) is a Full Face Mask that has no forehead support so you can wear glasses with it on.

Just to clear up a little misunderstanding: "BiPAP" is trademarked by Philips Resperonics as the name of their bi-level CPAP. "BiPAP" simply means a PR bi-level CPAP. ResMed bi-level CPAPs are trademarked as VPAP (which simply means "variable" CPAP. Some folks generically refer to all bi-level CPAPs as BiPAPs.

BiPAP, VPAP, APAP - they are all CPAPs.
