"Hi, I'm Dr. Bruce Dornn from A common question in my office is what causes dry eye?

Dry eye can be caused by many different conditions. Probably the most common cause is arthritis. Arthritis, an auto-immune condition such as lupus will tend to damage the small glands, the meibomian glands that secrete the very critical oil layer on the surface of the eye. Other conditions that can cause dry eye are diabetes, post-op LASIK patients can also experience dry eye symptoms. A lot of different medications can cause dry eye, so you should consult with your physician as to which medication you might be taking that could cause dry eye. And, as well as dry environments that might have a lot of dust, dander, pollinating plants, etc.
