I had a pre-op assessment on Friday and am booked to have the first cataract removed on 9 Nov. Very keen on having both done asap as they have grown quite fast.
During the medical check up I handed a list of my meds to the nurse, who immediately asked if I had Lupus. I said I hadn't had much of a description beyond connective fissure disorder and secondary Raynaud's.
All that was no problem, but there is a special protocol post surgery with either different or additional eye drops to add to the regime. I didn't ask what they might be but it's quite comforting that they had a protocol and that the pre-assessment nurse spotted Lupus (or some mixture) just from the meds I take.
