Can chronic sinus and allergy trouble cause kerotoconjunctivitis sicca?

No. Keratoconjunctivitis sicca is usually due to inadequate tear production from lacrimal hyposecretion or to excessive tear evaporation. Allergic conjunctivitis usually presents with eye itching and watering. Aging is one of the most common causes of dry eyes because tear production decreases with age. Certain medications and contact lenses have also been implicated.
