Hi and thanks for the questions,
Dryness in the eyes an mucosa generally is associated to diseases such as the natural aging process, especially menopause
. Side effects of certain drugs such as antihistamines and birth control pills. Diseases that affect the ability to make tears, such as Sjogren's syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis
, and collagen
vascular diseases. Structural problems with the eye lids that don't allow them to close properly.
This could lead to consequences such as Pain, Light sensitivity, A gritty sensation, A feeling of a foreign body or sand in the eye, Itching, Redness

Consulting your opthalmologist to me is the right thing to do.
