Dry Eye Syndrome Causes And Treatments

Dry eye syndrome is an extremely common condition in which the tear film that lubricates the surface of the eye is abnormal. It is usually due to one of two causes: decreased tear production or increased tear evaporation. Common causes of decreased tear production include Sjogren's syndrome (an autoimmune disorder in which the lacrimal gland is disfunctional) lacrimal gland disease, and decreased corneal sensation. Common causes of excessive tear evaporation include blepharitis (in which the oil glands around the eyelashes are clogged), blink problems, and eyelid closing problems. Other causes of dry eye syndrome include systemic diseases (sarcoidosis, human immunodeficiency virus, multiple sclerosis, lymphoma, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and vitamin A deficiency), certain medications (antihistamines, decongestants, blood pressure medication, and antipsychotic agents) glaucoma eye drops, and prolonged wearing of contact lenses. Postmenopausal women may be especially prone to developing dry eye syndrome. Most cases of dry eye syndrome are not associated with a general medical disease or serious eye problem.
