    Yes, dry, itchy eyes can be caused by menopause. Dry, itchy eyes would come to you if you got dry eye syndrome. Dry eyes would be common in menopause period, because people would naturally produce fewer tears as they get older. You can buy some over-the-counter artificial tears which help you produce more tears.

And at the same time, with menopause, it may lead to some eye problems, such as dry eyes and others. According to some researches, dry eyes affect about 60 percent of women who are menopausal.

In that way, your dry eyes become itchy. So just take some measures as soon as possible when you have dry eyes because of menopause. In addition, Macular degeneration which is the leading cause of blindness can occur during menopause. Anyway, just be careful about it.
