Just wondering if anyone has had any advice about outdoor work. I am a PE teacher, and have found that I am really starting to struggle with my dry eyes and voice towards the end of term. Has anyone been told of any long term effects of working outdoors with Sjogrens.
At our school there is no shade so I wear sunglasses, put eye drops in and have sun cream on.
I was diagnose when I was 22, I am now 35 I take Plaquenil, which helps my sore joints but I am very light sensitive, and have virtually no tears or saliva.
I am thinking about a career change for my own health?
I saw my Ophthalmologist today, she told me to try different eye drops, but did not really tell me if outdoor work has long term effects.
Any advice would be appreciated,
