Marla Ahlgrimm, a retired pharmacist that specialized in hormone replacement therapy, says that women seek HRT to combat the many unwelcome symptoms of menopause. One of these is dry eye syndrome.
According to Marla Ahlgrimm, dry eye syndrome is a condition that reduces the moisture level on the surface of the eyes. Unfortunately, it is more than simply an annoyance. Dry eye syndrome can result in a burning sensation and the feeling as though there is something perpetually stuck in the eye. Further, because the eye does not have the lubrication it needs for effective blinking, this may result in constant damage to the eyes’ surface.
