BACKGROUND Diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular oedema are more prevalent in patients with coexistent obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). OBJECTIVES We assessed if treatment of OSA with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) might improve visual acuity (VA). METHODS A total of 35 patients with clinically significant macular oedema (CSMO) and OSA [oxygen desaturation index (ODI) ≥10 or apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI) ≥15] were identified and agreed to be studied.
