There are some inflammatory problems of the eye associated with lupus ranging from mild to moderate. I would contact the optomatrist right away. Been losing my vision and would hate to see anyone lose theirs. Not to say this is the case in your regard, but it isn't something to mess with. It could be an infection or something inflamed within or on your eye. I was quite shocked when I found out that lupus also affects the eyes, so you really need to get it checked immediately - Good luck - Kristin
