Progesterone and eye problems are linked by the action of estrogen. Many women experience an increase in such problems during the premenstruum. Some of the symptoms are...

  • glaucoma
  • pain
  • burning
  • misty vision
  • uveitis
  • conjunctivitis
  • styes
  • dark rings under the eyes
  • watering
  • puffiness

The reason for this is a high level of estrogen causing water retention prior to menstruation. Hormone imbalances induced by environmental poisons, especially the xeno-estrogens, are thought by some authorities to be at the root of the problem.

Maintaining an adequate level of progesterone helps to reduce the adverse effects of excessive estrogen.
