Yes for sure, it happens with UC. My opt said that even if you ate something that won't agree with you, it can do that for people with UC. It happened to me, maybe was on the verge of episcleritis or scleritis. But since my UC has settled down about
80%, my eyes have been doing OK. I do eyedrops for dry eyes as told by my opt to do. This happens with people with an "autoimmune" problem. I still have a problem with that suggestion, i think it's a bacteria or something like that. I try to rest my eyes a lot.
