I couldn't stand my Resmed F20 anymore because of my pressure being so high the air coming from the vent holes was constanly blowing full force into my eyes and face! I switched to the Amara View and now the problem is whenever I change sleep positions I get the air blowing full force into my eyes and face again from the vent holes now too!

I'm beginning to except the fact that I will simply be without uninterrupted sleep for the rest of my life. :(

It's impossible for the air from the vent to blow into your eyes. the vents point forward.

You're having *leaks* around the cushion that is what's blowing into your eyes.

are you using a mask liner?

At my last sleep study I complained of the same problem to the sleep tech so she told me to cup my hand over the vent holes briefly to see if it was a leak or not. I do this often and it does seem to be the vent holes. I tend to sleep with my head down a lot.

It's still leaks, air can't make a u turn after it leaves the forward facing vents.
