    About Dry Eye
    Dry eye is complex disease of the surface of the eye that affects the tears. It is more common in women and in particular those of perimenopausal age. Risk factors for dry eye problems include any systemic inflammatory disease including inflammatory arthritis, a number of medications including blood pressure medication, antidepressants, certain breast cancer treatment medications and prolonged digital computer screen or video screen use as well as contact lens wear.
