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.

I require the bipap function and have two pressures.

I wear glasses with my ComfortGel Blue mask. The forehead support may not be a problem, but you have to put the glasses on before putting on the mask.

Even without a forehead support, a nasal or full face mask may not work with glasses. Even on my ComfortGel mask, the top of the mask goes far enough up the nose to somewhat conflict with my glasses. Results may vary based on mask, glasses, and the shape of your face.

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