    Yes, it is possible for you to get bags under eyes because of sleep apnea. When you have the sleep apnea, you will have the affection on the eyes part. The blood circulation around the eyes will be blocked. That is why you get the bags under eyes. You could use the tea bags to cover on the eyes to increase the blood circulation on the eyes to remove the eye bags. You could also use the warm compress to remove them.
