Also, the eye's immune system can go haywire and compensate for the dryness in the eyes or lack of tear production by overproducing poor quality tears. ADDITIONAL CAUSES OF DRY EYES 1 Some additional causes of dry eyes include smoking, drinking coffee, wearing contact lenses and exposure to certain environmental factors such as heaters and air conditioning. 2 Certain eye diseases and health conditions such as Diabetes, Glaucoma, Asthma, Lupus and a Thyroid condition to name a few. 3 Excessive Close up Work on the Computer: When you are performing excessive close up work on the computer you tend to decrease your rate of blinking. This decrease in blinking causes staring which is a bad visual habit that decreases the amount of tear production in the eyes thereby causing symptoms such as eye strain and dry eyes. 4 Nutritional Deficiency: Scientific research indicates that a Vitamin D deficiency can cause certain eye problems related to dry eyes such as insufficient tear production in the eyes.
