Before I found out that I was a coeliac, I began to have problems with my eyes. I already had various things which now appear to be linked to coeliac disease such as headaches, blisters, ulcers, tummy troubles but I hadn't been diagnosed at that time.
I developed something quite out of the blue, which I was told was blepharitis - it is reportedly caused through a germ that attacks where the lids meet the eyes as well as the eyelids and sometimes up to the eyebrows. It took me nearly 12 months before I even went to the doctor then after following instructions from both my optician and doctor, I was eventually sent to hospital. They were lovely and I was informed my eyes were very dry which made them itchy - I was prescribed drops which eased the itching inside the eye. The blepharitis cleared up and then after a while I found myself with eczema ... and here I am!
