Our Eye Doctor, Dr. Vaughan, Answers Your Questions About Dry Eye Syndrome

What can cause the symptoms of Dry Eye Syndrome (DES)?

Here are some factors that may contribute to these symptoms:

  • As a part of the natural aging process, especially among women over age 40.
  • As a side effect of many medications, such as antihistamines, antidepressants, certain blood pressure medicines, Parkinson’s medications and birth control pills.
  • Because you live in a dry, dusty or windy climate with low humidity.
