What Causes Dry Eye?

Dry eye occurs when tears evaporate too quickly or the eyes do not produce sufficient tears. This condition can be caused by a variety of factors.

Old Age

People over the age of 50 are more likely to experience dry eye disease, as tear production slows down with age. When the eyelid glands produce fewer tears, dry eye develops.

Hormonal changes

Women often experience dry eye symptoms while pregnant, on birth control pills, or during menopause. This is because unbalanced hormone levels can often lead to decreased tear production.

Health Conditions

Sjögren's syndrome is an autoimmune disease that can cause your white blood cells to attack the tear glands and reduce tear production. Other autoimmune diseases, such as arthritis, lupus, and diabetes, can also lead to insufficient tear production.

Certain medications, such as antihistamines, antidepressants, diuretics, and beta-blockers, can affect tear production or tear composition, causing dry eyes or exacerbating their symptoms.

Other causes include dry air, indoor heating, poor tear quality and dehydration.

Google Reviews

Been to many optometrists over the years. The exam, comparatively, is on the more thorough side. The people handling post exam are also very nice. Not a single bit pushy. When the eyeglass inventory and selections improved, this would be one good place among optometrists in the Bay Area to go to.
