My poor old eyes!

Thank you to everybody who replied to my question regarding "Deteriorating Vision".

Since reading your replies I am not sure if I have Sjogrens Syndrome as I do not have itchy, gritty or inflamed eyes which most people seem to have who suffer from this disease. I feel as though I am looking out of a greasy window and keep wanting to rub my eyes to clear them.

I have needed glasses for reading for some years but the prescription was not high and, as I am waiting to see what is said at the hospital before I spend a lot of money on a new pair, I am having real difficulty with reading, especially in a poor light and have to resort to a magnifying glass sometimes.

I have purchased a new pair of glasses from Glasses Direct for distance, which I have never needed before, because everything was a blur when I was indoors and out and about.

Before Christmas everything was fine - this only came on in late January / early February. I am not sure if this is in any way connected to another auto-immune disease or to PBC. It just seems to me that if it's not one thing it's another.

You sound very much like me and it was found to be cataract in my case. I do have dry mouth but not sure about dry eye as I'm not really sure of the symptoms but your eysa sound just like mine regarding the greasyness. x


Nannan - did you find that this came on sort of overnight?
