I don't drink or smoke or other things that cause puffy eyes. Of course, I did suffer from sleep apnea and insomnia for the last couple years, but my puffy eyes or dark circles always went away over time.
Now that I have been doing CPAP therapy for over a year now, I have noticed that everyday I wake up with puffy eyes that DO NOT go away. I have lowered my air pressure and my data shows that my machine doesn't even reach that upper limit anyway (ResMed S9 AutoSet).
Any advice? Others affected? I referring specifically to bags under my eyes.

How long do you sleep?
Do you use your machine for ALL sleeping? (or how much?)
What is your AHI?
Sleep study AHI: 49 RDI: 60 -- APAP 10-11 w/AHI: 1.5 avg for 7-days (up due likely to hip replacement recovery)
"We can all breathe together or we will all suffocate alone."
allergies maybe or maybe you are getting air blown in your eyes? just a few thoughts
