Why Your Eyes Might Be Red and Itchy"
My post on crying got a lot of us thinking about emotions. But one comment I received from Nancy (“My optometrist told me that we actually need testosterone as well as estrogen to produce tears, which is why many women develop dry eye as they age and as the hormone levels plummet”) got me thinking about another aspect of tears: the lack of them as it relates to menopause. Indeed, hormones play a significant role in lubricating our eyes.
