THE MENOPAUSE AND DRY EYE
New statistics show that, sadly, women are almost twice as likely than men to suffer from dry eyes* and the menopause plays a big part in this too.
Hormone changes that occur during the menopause cause many challenges and dryness issues such as dry eyes**, dry mouth, dry skin are just a few of the issues most women will experience.
Hormones including oestrogen and androgens (such as testosterone), can have an impact on the tear film in our eyes and it’s thought that a decline in androgens, could lead to dry eye.
However, the relationship is still being researched. The rates of dry eye disease are also higher in postmenopausal women.
