    Yep, it could cause that. Estrogen is an important hormone for people, especially it controls a female’s sexual and reproductive development. Human beings can produce it naturally, it also can be taken from outside sources, such as meat and eggs. It can affect almost all organs, such as the heart, the blood vessel, the eye, the brain. However, if you have too much estrogen once, it would cause thyroid disorder to make your eyes dry.

    Well, it is true that sometimes too much estrogen could give rise to dry eyes, some scientific research has indicated that the assumption is true to some extent. However, more evidence is still needed to prove its authenticity. Anyway, we need to strike a balance of estrogen intake, excessive estrogen is not healthy and is risky. Dry eyes are very serious so if you get them you need to consult a doctor and get some artificial tears to help.
