Dry Eyes and Sjogren's Syndrome

By November 24, 2012

Follow me on:

Sjogren's Syndrome is a condition in which the body attacks its own moisture producing glands. It may attack the salivary gland and the lacrimal glands, which produce tears. It can also affect the bowels and other moisture glands in the body.

Sjogren's is well known to eye doctors because people with the condition often suffer from severe dry eye syndrome.
