Tears are a good thing

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 by FRED CICETTI Special to The Press in Focus

Q. My eyes are dry a lot. Is this something common when you get older?

Dry eyes are common in those older than 50 because our production of tears diminishes as we age. A lack of tears is more common among women, especially after menopause.

The tears film in your eyes has three basic layers: oil, water and mucus. Problems with any of these can cause dry eyes.
