Sorry for that I'm posting new posts like machine-gun last week, but I see a little stagnation in the arthritis forum now, so I decided that either nobody does have questions or everybody are on vacation  cool  My question now is pretty clear, in contrast with my previous topics tongue I've also posted a poll tongue
-----
Do somebody have eye problems related to their diseases? confused What eyes problems (iritis, conjuctivitis, uveitis)? eyes how severe, how often, and how do you treat them? devil
----- ;)
 
Unfortunately I have pretty often such a problems. Especially last two months. I have problems working on the computer almost every day. A can't stand looking at the monitor, things looks spreaded, tension inside, photosensitivity, sometimes also pain apears. Last novelty from the ophtamologist I visited today was some type of uveitis. In addition to conjuctivitis;) Well, she prescriped me Sofradex drops with corticosteroid and told me to use it only when I have severe vision related problems and/or pain, not only redness.
 
Thank you.

Marius Hi,

I have eye problems and mine is due to crohns.For about a year before being diagnosed with crohns I complained about my eyes feeling tired all the time the itched and burned all the time and stayed red all the time and I also had a gritty feeling in my eyes all the time.When i started getting real sick I told my GI about my eye's and he sent me to a eye doctor that dealt with people that have auto immune diseases and I was tole the red eye and the tired and gritty feeling was due to the crohns so I was placed on eye drops to help my eyes from drying out and I was as well told that I had severe stigatisams in both eyes.I now wear glasses and because of all this and to top it all off when i got my very first pair of glasses I had to have bi-folcals as weel.There is a med that I'm on because I also have RA,OA,AS,SEJERENS AS WELL AS THE CROHNS.
Thanks
Curley......

Hi Marius,

I have dry and very sore eyes at times. I'm also near-sighted, far-sighted, and a glaucoma suspect. But I'm not sure any of that is related to my rheumatoid problems? I've never been diagnosed with uveitis, conjunctivitis, etc...

I also suffer from eye strain, particularly when I've done a lot of reading, or if I spend any amount of time on the computer (which is everyday because I use a computer for my job). I've been photosensitive since I was a teenager. I'm currently seeing an opthamologist because my rheumatologist put me on plaquenil, so I figure if any of my eye problems are related to AI disease, the opthamologist would let me know.

Yeah,
 
I think dry and sore eyes seems to be related to the AI diseases but i doubt the eyes strains which you get after long working on the computer are related to the AI. It might be by neurological nature and overstraining.
My symptom is very strange, it varies. There are days when I do not get it at all, and some times a week when I get it every day;( That is realy a bad week because when I work on the computer something.... it's diffucult to describe.... but I think it is a combination of tension, photosensitivity and when I move my look harshly I think like the landscape moves slower and somehow looks smearded and my brain confuses on this and I can get terrible headache in addition, if not taking an *eye-rest*;). Thats why it is completely impossible to work on computer when I have this type of flare, and the worst is that it happenst quite often... think more the 50% of the time;(
 
 
Thank you for your share.
