Has Anyone Ever Had Their Eyes Affected By RA?

Has Anyone Ever Had Their Eyes Affected By RA?

I just experienced a very painful bout of Iritis. My eyes were very red, light sensitive, and felt like they were going to pop out, bolts of pain shot through my head. Doc put my eye steroids which helped a lot. Still having problems with bright lights but on the mend πŸ˜€πŸ‘

Yes, I've had uveitis in both eyes. First one, then the other. No pain or symptoms except for blurriness. Ended up having cataracts due to steroid drops. I still have blurriness on one side, I'm not sure if it's active or just floaters. I'm headed back to ophthalmologist next week. One more thing to deal with.

blurry eyes are a side effect of plasmaquin if you take it.
