dry eye syndrome and depressionPeople who have dry eye disease (DED) or dry eye syndrome also suffer from depression, anxiety, or stress.  There are many theories as to the cause:  The chronic pain associated with the symptoms of DED, certain medications that treat depression that cause dry eyes, or an underlying physical problem that causes depression that can also cause DED.  Fortunately, there are some ways to deal with DED and depression that bring people relief.

Dry Eye Disease

Resulting in damage to the surface of the eye, dry eye disease affects the tear production and ocular surface.  Vision problems, interference with reading, working, or driving, and complications such as conjunctivitis, ulcers, or scars can be caused from DED.  Itching, burning, redness, a feeling of something in the eye, and pain are a few of the symptoms of suffering from dry eyes.

Dry eye disease can affect anyone of any age.  However, it seems more prevalent in females and older individuals.  There are many factors that can cause dry eyes:  smoking, surgery, hormonal changes, poor indoor air quality, dry air, and contact lenses are just a few.  Experts have found that from one-third Up to half of a community can suffer from DED.

Depression and Dry Eye Disease

The symptoms associated with DED can have a negative effect on the quality of an individual’s life, mood, and mental health.  When symptoms are severe, the individual’s perception of pain along with depression, stress, and anxiety can be present.  It is also thought that those who do not suffer from DED initially may develop dry eye symptoms due to antidepressant medications.

The connection between depression symptoms and the symptoms of dry eyes is fairly stunning.  Patients that did not take psychiatric medications, but still suffered from depression, were found to have dry eye syndrome almost three times more than their counterparts.  If patients who take medication for depression are added into the mix, the numbers rise even higher.  Therefore, doctors are now becoming aware of the fact that many patients who have never been diagnosed with depression should be evaluated when diagnosed with DED.
