Dry eye affects more women than men because hormonal changes, such as those that occur in pregnancy, menstruation, and menopause, can decrease tear production.



Environmental Factors:



Environmental conditions also can play a role in making the eyes dry, these include:





wind

heat

dust

air conditioning

cigarette smoke

even hair dryers can make the eyes dry



Some people benefit from avoiding dusty, smoky areas, wearing sunglasses, and using a humidifier to moisten the surrounding air.



Not Blinking Enough:



Another common culprit is not blinking enough, which happens during activities such as watching TV and computer use. Each time you blink, it coats the eye with tears. You normally blink about every 12 seconds. Studies have been conducted on people playing computer games, and it was found that some people blinked once or twice in three minutes.



Contact Lenses:



Experts believe, about half of all people who wear contact lenses complain of dry eyes. That's because soft contact lenses, which float on the tear film that covers the cornea, absorb the tears in the eyes.



Laser Vision Correction and Other Procedures:



Dry eye also occurs or gets worse after LASIK and other refractive surgeries, in which the corneal nerves are cut during creation of a corneal flap. The corneal nerves stimulate tear secretion. If you've had dry eyes from wearing contact lenses or for any other reason and you are thinking about refractive surgery, this is something to consider.



Certain Medications:



Dry eyes also can be caused by certain medications, including:





antihistamines

some antidepressants

birth control pills

nasal decongestants

the prescription acne drug Accutane



Autoimmune Diseases:



Some autoimmune diseases, can attack the tear glands such as:



Lupus, an autoimmune disease that can affect many parts of the body.





Lupus Screening Quiz



Rheumatoid Arthritis, an inflammatory disease that causes pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function in the joints. It can also affect other parts of the body besides the joints.





Rheumatoid Arthritis Screening Quiz



Sjogren's Syndrome, an autoimmune disease in which the immune system targets moisture-producing glands and causes dryness in the mouth and eyes.





Sjogren's Syndrome Screening Quiz



Other Diseases:



Other diseases can also cause dry eyes. For example, certain types of thyroid disease can interfere with blinking. Blepharitis, an inflammation of the eyelids, can interfere with the oil glands in the eyes.
