Challenge: Dry Eyes or Dry Mouth
Air leaks can sometimes be at the root of both dry eyes and dry mouth. For example, air blowing directly into the eyes from a CPAP mask leak can result in dry eye. Once leaks have been lessened to a level deemed acceptable by a clinician, there are accessories that can ensure any remaining leak does not make a patient miserable.
Soft and flexible, these hydrating eyeseals 4.0 are made from medical-grade thermal plastic, so they rest comfortably over your orbital bones, while leaving room to blink freely. Fitted with an adjustable microfiber head wrap, eyeseals 4.0 gently shelter eyes from leaking air and naturally increase relative humidity, hydrating the sensitive eyelid skin. Made in the United States and 100% latex free, eyeseals 4.0 are doctor-recommended and perfect for ensuring a great night of rest. “I consider them an ounce of prevention,” says Art Epstein, OD, FAAO, FABCO, FBCLA, DPNAP, director of Clinical Research & the Dry Eye and Ocular Surface Disease Center at Phoenix Eye Care, PLLC. “These EyeEco products create 100% humidity under them, so even if the eye is open, it doesn’t matter. Even if air is flowing over the eyes, it doesn’t matter.” They are available in clear, black, and eight colors. Retail: $60. www.eyeeco.com
