Obstructive Sleep Apnea Associated With Floppy Eyelid Syndrome.

The CNN (4/1, Landau) “Paging Dr. Gupta” blog reported that a “new study in the journal Ophthalmology links…obstructive sleep apnea to an eye disorder called floppy eyelid syndrome.” After examining “102 patients with floppy eye syndrome and 102 controls,” researchers found that “about one-third of patients with floppy eyelid syndrome also had obstructive sleep apnea, and the association was still statistically significant when controlling for body mass index.”
