We all know that dry eye is one of the most common complaints of patients walking into an eye doctor’s office. Dry eye is associated with older age, the female sex and prolonged use of digital screens. It can also be associated with and exacerbated by certain systemic and ocular medications. Understanding which medications may affect dry eye helps practitioners identify, diagnose and treat patients’ dry eye more effectively.
