Smoking Increases Risks for Vision Problems and Vision Loss

We talked to VSP network doctor Glenda Brown, OD, to find out more.
She practices in Alpharetta, Georgia, in the heart of the southern "tobacco belt." "Over the years, I've found many patients who smoke are surprised to learn about the needless risks they're taking with their vision," she says. She shares a study highlighted in JAMA: The Journal of the American Medical Association. Dr. Brown has seen the effect quitting can have almost instantly on dry eye. After only a few days smoke-free, the condition often improves, she says. "I can't tell you how many times I've had a patient come in with red, irritated eyes and complain about the gritty, burning sensation that accompanies most cases of dry eye," she says. "Giving up tobacco isn't easy, but patients who do usually find their dry eye syndrome improves quite rapidly." Like all doctors, Dr. Brown joins the "you should quit" chorus with patients who smoke, but it's an uphill battle. But there's plenty of help out there - more and more all the time. "The best strategy is to ask your family physician for help in breaking the addiction," says Dr. Brown.
