Before discussing whether or not gluten can cause eye problems, let’s address some important background information. Celiac disease is often thought of as a disease that only affects the small intestine, creating symptoms like diarrhea, intestinal pain, cramping, weight loss, and malabsorption. While that is true, approximately half of all celiac disease patients present with extra-intestinal (non-gastrointestinal) symptoms, such as anemia, osteoporosis, neurological disorders, infertility, skin concerns, and vision or eyesight problems. Ocular (eye) symptoms caused by gluten can vary according to a person’s genetic predisposition, immune status, gender, and age at onset.

This video will focus on how non celiac gluten sensitivity and celiac disease can manifest as ophthalmic concerns, which can be derived from both malnutrition or malabsorption and immune alterations.

If you have been diagnosed with celiac disease or non celiac gluten sensitivity, it is wise to be vigilant in testing for, consuming, and supplementing as necessary with nutrients needed for eye health, as they are often found to be depleted even in patients who have been strictly following a gluten-free diet.
