The Link Between Dry Eye and Depression
If clinical depression involves sadness, low mood, and bouts of crying, you’d think it’d be more associated with watery eyes rather than dry. However, studies have shown that depression is indeed linked with dry eye. More research is needed to fully understand exactly how these two conditions relate to each other; however, the link appears to be clear. Does dry eye cause depression or does depression cause dry eye? Or is it something else entirely?
