Your Eyes

Medication Can Cause Dry-Eye
by Dr. Tom Smith

An individual who has worn contact lenses for a long time may start having eye problems when taking a new medication.  Pharmaceuticals may depress the central nervous system, reduce blinking and tear production and, as a result, lead to dry-eye symptoms.

Women who take estrogen for menopause or osteoporosis, for example, may be susceptible to greater incidence of of dry-eye conditions, increased cornea sensitivity and contact lens incompatibility.  Individuals who take antihistamines for seasonal allergies can suffer from dry-eye syndrome as well as from headaches, drowsiness, ocular pain and conjunctivitis.  Certain medications such as birth control pills may have warnings concerning the difficulty of wearing contact lenses.  Carefully read the packaging about possible side effects.

If you have questions concerning your prescriptions or are experiencing any negative effects from a change in pharmaceuticals, contact your eye care professional as soon as possible.  He/She will be able to provide additional information and perhaps offer an alternate medicine.
