Not that I can tell. They're starting to look a little bit heavy, but I am 42 and figured it was more related to my age than anything. I have used a C-pap for about 10 years, but other than that don't have any health issues. I was on an oxygen supplement (around 3-4 lpm?) through the machine at night, but I quit using it when I noticed the sensation in my eyes. The bags under my eyes are fairly pronounced and appeared (in my perception) quite suddenly; over the course of a month or so. Everything just feels like 'pressure'. But the sensation of the upper eyelids being wet drives me crazy. I find myself constantly straining to make them feel like they're 'open'.
Yes it does. - Am I understanding correctly that one may be able to fully produce tears as if there were no issues, yet still (possibly) be dealing with DTF? I haven't noticed any deficiencies in my ability to produce tears.
Are artificial tears available otc?
Also, am I understanding correctly that this condition is reversible?
The bags under the eyes however... here to stay?
And I thought all I got for my 40th birthday was an invisibility cloak so the ladies couldn't see me any more... Sounds like I picked up some nice eye bags as well. - Ok, I will try the eyedrops for 4 weeks. I hope that it helps; as low on the 'serious' scale and silly as it is, it's aggravating to be pulling faces all day long trying to make your upper eyelids feel like they're not stuck to each other. Thanks for the advice.
Would the o2 treatment contribute to something like this?
Well, I'm done with that too, I guess.
