I had redness; eye pain , headache, spasms and couldn’t tolerate light. My ophthalmologist said it was bilateral eye inflammation caused by the autoimmune disease. They are not responding well to prednisone drops and it’s terrible.
Yes at least one of my eyes always has a blood shot appearance. My rheumatologist has told me has got to do with my lupus. I am using lubricating eye drops
This sounds just like me. Eye inflammation is a common symptom that occurs to me during every flare. The beginning of this year it has hit me harder than normal. Unless I wear sunglasses outside I can’t see, my eyes will physically close from the irritation of the sunlight, they burn and sometimes I like they have their own heartbeat.
Yes and I use eye drops several times a day. Sometimes they don't help and I think that is due to systemic flare I am in. Very frustrating
I had episcleritis and they prescribed NSAIDS. I am one who refuses steroids.
I get swollen corneas and extremely dry eyes. Only thing that helps me is systain ultra preservative free eye drops. I get the small vials and after I open it I put it in a plastic bag for later in the day. It won’t stay good not covered overnight. But I get 2-3 uses out of it a day.
