    Well, generally speaking, menopause is a natural biological process for women. People with menopause may suffer some eye problems, such as dry eyes and others. For example, eye problems that occur during menopause can also be age-related. As we know that age-related degeneration can be the cause of cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma. So it can lead to those eye diseases too. Anyway, you should pay attention to them. Besides, some people who get dry eyes because of menopause, and do not treat dry eye, it can cause the cornea to develop ulcers, become scarred and become infected. In some cases, it can be dangerous.

    Yes, people may suffer some eye problems because of menopause, such as itchy eyes, dry eyes and other problems. For men, the menopause is pointed to 50 ~ 60 years old. During this phase, the menopausal symptoms are hot and dry vertigo, palpitation. For women, menopause refers to the transition period. During this period, the ovarian function will be declined from strong state gradually to disappeared state completely. This period of menopause includes a period of time before and after. During this time, the body structure will work in disorder. You should adjust to the right rhythm of the life pace by practicing a lot. You should eat more food with vitamin C to moisture the eyes. If you feel dry at the eyes, you could use some eye drops with anti-inflammation to make them feel comfortable.

    We all know that women who are menopausal are generally in their 40s or 50s, and this is about the same time that vision problems start to occur.Middle-aged women tend to develop presbyopia, which means that you can no longer focus on close-up objects. This condition will get worse as you age. Nearly half of all of the 65-year-olds in America have some measure of cataract formation in their eyes. And there still another age-related eye problems include glaucoma, which increases in likelihood with each decade after the age of 40. Many suffer from macular degeneration, which can lead to blindness. If you are a diabetic, which is a condition that may first pop up during menopause, you can develop diabetic retinopathy, which is a vision-threatening disease. In addition menopausal women may experience dry eyes, because as we get older we generate fewer tears. The eyes will sting and burn as a result and feel uncomfortable because of the dryness. This will result in visual disturbances.
