Abstract

Aims - To determine the relation between dry eye and Meige's syndrome. Methods - 325 patients with dry eye were divided into those responsive to topical and other forms of treatment (n = 276) and those who were not (n = 49). A neuropsychiatric examination was performed to check for Meige's syndrome in the latter group. Results - Twenty eight (57%) of the treatment unresponsive patients were diagnosed with Meige's syndrome. Conclusions - There is a subgroup of patients with dry eye who do not respond to simple therapy. More than half of these patients have Meige's syndrome and need psychiatric, as well as ophthalmic, care.
