Hormone Imbalance Connected to Dry Eyes

Submitted by Sixth Avenue Medical Pharmacy

Women experiencing excessive dry eye may be surprised to learn that hormones are most likely to blame. Our hormones are chemical messengers produced by the endocrine system that regulate everything from digestion and metabolism to mood and growth, so it’s not surprising they can affect our eyes. When hormones are out of balance, especially for women during pregnancy, menstruation, peri-menopause, menopause or stress—reactions in the eyes can occur. Women are more likely to get dry eye as they get older because estrogen levels change so much over time.
