Thanks Leta and Babs--
Yeah, my doc always says it's the sjogrens but I'm not so sure how the inflammation in my lacrimal glands (from sjogrens) could be effecting the focusing of my eyes. They always say its floaters or dry eyes, but it's not. It's more the feeling of when you get your eyes dialated and you go out into bright light, but it comes and goes. Thanks alot Leta, I didn't know that there was such a thing as a neuroOpthamologist. I see an MD, an eye surgeon, but he doesn't seem to know much about
Sjogrens and doesn't take the eye problems very seriously in my presence, doesn't let me know what's going on and gets mad that my rheumie talks to me about
my eyes. He said my rheumie tells me too much, like that I'm in a higher risk group for lymphoma.
