How Dry Eye Disease Develops & How to Treat It

Dry eye disease is an increasingly common eye condition that can happen either because the eye is not producing enough tears, or because tears are evaporating too quickly, leaving the eyes without enough moisture to function comfortably.

This can happen for several reasons including allergies, side effects from medications, hormonal changes, and illness.

Depending on the cause and exact symptoms of your dry eyes, our Dallas eye doctors will be able to prescribe treatments and medications aimed at increasing the amount of tears your eye produces and/or slowing the evaporation of tears to better hydrate your eyes.


What Are the Main Causes of Dry Eye?

  • Aging

    Dry eye disease tends to affect people over the age of 50. This is because tear production slows as we age. As the lacrimal glands produce fewer tears, dry eye develops.

  • Hormonal changes

    It's not uncommon for some women to experience dry eye symptoms during pregnancy, menopause, or while using birth control pills. That's because hormone imbalances can reduce tear production.

  • Autoimmune disease

    Certain autoimmune diseases, like Sjögren’s syndrome, can cause white blood cells to attack your tear glands, thus reducing tear production. Other diseases like arthritis, lupus, and diabetes can also cause poor or insufficient tear production.

  • Medications

    Certain medications can reduce mucus production (one of the 3 tear components) thus contributing to chronic dry eye.

    They include antihistamines, antidepressants, diuretics, and beta-blockers.

Note that this is just a handful of causes. There are many other factors that can contribute to dry eye, including pollution and dry air, allergies, poor tear quality, dehydration, contact lens wear, and more.

Easily the most thorough, detailed optometry appointment I have ever had in 15 years of wearing cont... acts and glasses. Dr. Arora was very kind and knowledgeable and explained everything to me in great detail. It is obvious he is very passionate about his job and his patients; I will never go to another optometrist as long as Dr. Arora is practicing.

I've been going to Dr. Arora for the past 15 years and I couldn't be more impressed with his excepti... onal care. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable and hardworking, but he also has a wonderful bedside manner that makes you feel truly cared for. I was amazed by his attention to detail when he spotted a slight texture change in a picture of my retina, which he recommended we keep an eye on. After a few checkins, Dr. Arora saw that the retina had begun to tear. Thanks to his vigilance and expertise, I was able to see a retinal surgeon the same day. If it weren't for Dr. Arora's diligent care, I would have lost vision in my left eye. I highly recommend Dr. Arora to anyone in need of exceptional eye care in the greater Dallas area.

We went to Dr.Aorora as my daughter's myopia was getting worse very fast. Dr.Arora discussed various... myopia management options and fitted her with specialty contact lenses that are meant to slow down myopia progression. To our amazement, my daughter's prescription hasn't changed in 2 years. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for myopia management.

Dry Eyes FAQs

Can I still wear contact lenses if I have dry eye syndrome?

Yes, some people can still wear contact lenses with dry eye syndrome. However, depending on its severity, you may need to carefully select the adequate contact lens for optimal clarity and comfort.

Oftentimes, because contact lenses sit on the eye, it's difficult for vital oxygen to reach the eye. This can worsen dry eye symptoms, and increase the risk of scratching or otherwise damaging your eye. Make sure to ask your eye doctor which contact lenses are most adapted to your condition.

Can dry eye syndrome be cured?

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for dry eye syndrome. There are, however, many treatment options that offer lasting dry eye relief.

Can dry eye syndrome cause blindness?

In rare extreme cases, dry eye syndrome can cause corneal ulcers. These ulcers can result in scarring on the eye, making it difficult for the cornea to focus light accurately. If left untreated, corneal ulcers and the associated scarring can result in blindness.

How can I prevent dry eye symptoms?

Below are a few tips that will help prevent dry eye symptoms:

  • Point fans, heaters, and air vents so that they don’t directly blow into your eyes
  • Eat foods high in omega-3 fatty acids
  • Stay properly hydrated
  • Take breaks during long tasks, especially those that require extended visual focus
