Today I was diagnosed with (probable) steroid induced Glaucoma and Cataracts. I have been referred to an Ophthalmologist, who I should see by next week. My eye pressures are 31 in my left eye and 25 in my right eye. If I had not broken my spectacles, I would have probably put off going to the opticians; although I have had concerns of blurred vision for a while.
I have semi decided to contact my Rheumatology Nurse Specialist tomorrow to finally agree to start Methatrexate as a Steroid sparer. It must be a better option to loosing my sight. Just wondering if anyone else has had a similar situation.
Also, please everybody, make sure you have your eyes checked regularly. This has happened very quickly as I only began on prednisone in December 2015. My last eye examination was less than a year ago.
