INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE DRY EYES DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is a dry eye during pregnancy?

Dry eye is any condition in which your eyes are not moist enough, due either to a higher-than-normal amount of evaporation of water from the eyes, or an inadequate amount of tear production from glands called lacrimal glands. Reports suggest that pregnant women suffer dysfunction of lacrimal glands, resulting in inadequate tearing, more often than non-pregnant women, and giving birth multiple times increases the tendency to develop dry eyes. There is an extremely wide range of causes underlying dry eyes.
