Eye Symptoms In the Menopause

My eyes feel dry and sore?Is that really the menopause ? Or am I just getting old?

Dry eye syndrome is one of the most common ways menopause affects eye health. These symptoms are annoying although they are not serious. Using regular lubricating eye drops can help relieve these symptoms As you age, your eyes begin to deteriorate. Because of this, it can be difficult to distinguish whether an eye condition is caused by menopause or ageing.

Other eye conditions which menopause are thought to cause include:

  • Changing eye shape
  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts


Some of these conditions can cause severe symptoms if left untreated, including vision loss. Once you reach your 40’s it is important to have regular eye tests to detect potential issues early and look after your eyes.Stay ahead and make sure you book for regular eye checks with the optician so your eye health can be checked.
