Purpose: To determine whether dry eye disease (DED) is associated with irregular menstruation among Korean women.

Methods: In this population-based study, we randomly selected 6502 women (19–50 year olds) from nationally representative participants in the fifth annual Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2010–2012). Data were analyzed using logistic regression to evaluate the association between menstrual irregularity and DED, while controlling for demographic characteristics, lifestyle factors, and parity.

Results: After adjusting for the women’s demographic characteristics, age and body mass index, lifestyle factors (smoking, alcohol consumption, physical activity, and residential area), and parity, we found that menstrual irregularity was associated with an increased risk of DED (odds ratio, 1.49; 95% confidence interval, 1.02–2.17) and DED symptoms (odds ratio, 1.43; 95% confidence interval, 1.09–1.89).

Conclusions: We found a significant association between DED and menstrual irregularity.

  1. cartierlovejesduas Thank you, Richard, for bringing up this critical issue. We spoke of this once in person, how so-called “Buddhist” monks in Myanmar and Sri Lanka were committing violence against Muslim minorities. If the Rohingya called themselves Buddhist, we would not be seeing this tragedy unfold. It is particularly disturbing to see a group that identifies itself with the Buddhadharma committing atrocities. You and I both know this does not have to do with the monks being “Hinayana” as some of our Mahayana or Vajrayana practitioners might want to think. It has to do with the convenient justification of inbred prejudices and tutored ignorance, with a blinding intolerance that religious “certainty” can so easily impart to adherents of any denomination. Obviously, Buddhists are not immune to this false and tragic sense of righteousness. I urge you to continue your great struggle to promote the wisdom of compassion and tolerance to the rest of the Buddhist world, sir. Thank you again, sir, for your dedication.
