Abstract Context: There is a generalization that “antihypertensive (antiHT) therapy causes Dry Eye Syndrome”, which has been claimed for years however most of the publications are epidemiological studies. We performed a clinical study to investigate the effects of antiHT agents on tear function. Objective: The aim of this article is to evaluate the effects of different classes of antiHT medications on tear osmolarity, ocular surface problems and dry eye symptoms. Materials and methods… 
Magnitude of diabetes and hypertension among patients with Dry Eye Syndrome at a tertiary hospital of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – A case series
Subjective Complaints of Ocular Dryness and Xerostomia Among the Non-Sjögren Adult Population of Lublin Region, Poland
TLDR
It is indicated that ocular and mouth dryness are the most common conditions seen in out-patients, due to increased use of medications, computers, and air conditioning, and time spent at the computer.
Distribution and Correlation of Ocular Surface Disease Index Scores in a Non-Clinical Population: The Karachi Ocular Surface Disease Study
TLDR
There was a high prevalence of dry eye disease in the studied population and many systemic and ocular factors were associated with this disease.
Systemic Comorbidities of Dry Eye Syndrome: The Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey V, 2010 to 2012
TLDR
It is found that patients with dry eye syndrome have a higher prevalence of several systemic comorbidities and a more comprehensive therapeutic approach considering the effect of systemic medication may be necessary in these patients.
Dry eye disease in an adult population in South-West Nigeria.
Occupational ocular health problems among marble workers at Shaq El Tho’ban industrial area in Egypt
TLDR
The study’s results indicated that age, working category,smoking, and diabetes had significant impact on development of ocular symptoms, while working duration, diabetes, smoking, ocular Symptoms, and ocular foreign body had significantimpact on developmentof dry eye disease.

TLDR
The results do not indicate an association between autoimmune status and sicca symptoms and do not support immunologic testing in persons with sicCA symptoms in the absence of other important systemic features.

[Effects of acetazolamide (Diamox, Glaupax) on tear production].
TLDR
Tear secretion was measured in a control group and a test group of 20 patients who were treated with acetazolamide on the day after the cataract operation and administration of the carboanhydrase inhibitor caused a significant decrease of tear production.
Tear Osmolality and Ferning Patterns in Postmenopausal Women
TLDR
Osmolality in mild and moderately DE PMW is higher than in NDE PMW and tear ferning is a rapid, simple, noninvasive laboratory procedure that indicates altered tear quality in PMW with symptoms of dry eye.
Performance of Tear Osmolarity Compared to Previous Diagnostic Tests for Dry Eye Diseases
TLDR
Tear osmolarity showed a good performance in dry eye diagnosis, higher than the other tests considered, mainly in severe dry eye, and should be interpreted as an indicator of DED evolutionary process to severity.
Auswirkungen von Acetazolamid (Diamox^ , Glaupax^ ) auf die Tranenproduktion
TLDR
Tear secretion was measured in a control group and a test group of 20 patients who were treated with acetazolamide on the day after the cataract operation and administration of the carboanhydrase inhibitor caused a significant decrease of tear production.
Minimal clinically important difference for the ocular surface disease index.
TLDR
Using observational data, the minimal clinically important difference (MCID) for the Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) is estimated to assist clinicians and researchers when interpreting OSDI score changes.
