Dry Eyes and MenopauseYes, here it is, the one word women between the ages of 40 and 50 do not want to hear — menopause. Why mention it in a newsletter about eyes? Well, did you know the chance of developing dry eyes increases in women during pre-menopause and continues during post-menopause?

Women may experience a disruption of hormones that help maintain a stable tear film. This may result in inflammation which can lead to decreased tear production and dry eyes. Some symptoms include:

  • Eye fatigue
  • Excessive tearing
  • Blurred vision
  • Difficulty wearing contact lenses
