What Causes Dry Eye Disease?

We take our eyes for granted—until they are uncomfortable! Then it’s hard not to notice them. Dry eye disease can be the result of many different factors, including:

  • Age: Many people over the age of 65 experience some symptoms of dry eye disease.
  • Environment: Dry, windy, or smoky environments can play a role in dry eye disease.
  • Medications: Certain antihistamines, decongestants, and blood pressure medications can lead to reduced tear production.
  • Contact Lens Wear: Longtime use of contact lenses can contribute to dry eye disease. It’s just another reason why annual eye exams are recommended for contact lens users.
  • Laser Eye Surgery: Recent refractive surgery such as LASIK can cause a decrease in tear production.

Understanding Your Tears

Dry eye happens when your eyes either do not produce enough tears or your tears evaporate too quickly.

If your tears evaporate rapidly, one of the 3 components of your tears may be to blame. Oil, water, and mucus make up tears, and each part has an important role to play in hydrating—and protecting—the eye.

Water hydrates the eye, oil helps prevent the water from evaporating too quickly, and mucus spreads the tears over the entirety of the eye’s surface. A disruption in the balance of these 3 components can lead to dry eye.

If your eyes simply are not producing enough tears as a result of aging, environmental factors, or medications, you may experience dry eye disease symptoms.
