Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) has a multisystem effect and is associated with a host of systemic side effects and the eyes are particularly susceptible to both mechanical and vascular consequences of the disease. This emphasizes the importance to increased awareness of both OSA and of ocular complications of this common disorder to prevent vision-threatening complications. The purpose of this short review is to provide ophthalmologist and primary care physicians with knowledge of how recent…

The ocular manifestations of sleep apnea are outlined to increase awareness of the ocular complications of this common disorder and increase communication and co-management between eye-care providers and sleep specialists alike.

Ophthalmic Diseases in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea

The purpose of this review is to provide primary care physicians with a general knowledge of the signs, symptoms, and management of the ophthalmic diseases associated with OSA.

Association of Nonarteritic Ischemic Optic Neuropathy With Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome: Consequences for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Screening and Treatment.

The results suggest that OSAS is common in patients with nonarteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy and that polysomnography should be considered in these patients and that patients with severe OSAS who are nonadherent to ventilation treatment with continuous positive airway pressure have an increased risk of second eye involvement.

The following review will discuss the most recent understanding of the relationship between OSA and NAION, with implications for further research and prevention strategies.

Prevalence and risk factors of eye diseases in adult patients with obstructive sleep apnoea: results from the SLE.E.P.Y cohort study

EDs were more prevalent in patinets with OSA than in the general population, while significant differences were found for gender, body mass index, Oxygen Desaturation Index, smoking habit, hypertension and diabetes.

Mechanisms of sleep-disordered breathing: causes and consequences

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is very common in the general population and is characterized by ineffective inspiratory efforts against a collapsed upper airway during sleep. Collapse occurs mainly at

An electrocardiogram-based analysis evaluating sleep quality in patients with obstructive sleep apnea

Polysomnography and CPC measures differentiated no from moderate to severe OSA groups and HFC ≥ 50 % discriminated successful from unsuccessful CPAP therapy, and showed clinical value in identifying sleep quality disturbance among CPAP users.

Obstructive sleep apnoea in the general population: highly prevalent but minimal symptoms

In a middle-aged general population, approximately one in five subjects had moderate-to-severe OSA, but the majority of them were neither symptomatic nor sleepy and did not have impaired vigilance, as assessed by the AHI.
