Hi Lisa! I, too, would wake up many a morning to find my “mask” lying near my pillow or next to my bed on the floor. It’s certainly hard to control the hand’s action while in deep sleep – I always figured that it must of been a good dream!
During my earlier years of eye trouble I would use an eye lubricant and tape my eyes shut at night with sensitive first aid tape. I never liked the taping, but I never took off the tape in my sleep. After my surgeries I tied a cotton bandana over my eyes to keep them moist – that’s when my mask removal troubles started. I have no suggestions, except trying the eye taping method. It relieved the soreness, redness, and itchiness for me in the morning.
Sweet dreams, Debby
