I've just been to the optician as I have had really sore gritty eyes for a few weeks. He says I'm not making enough tears and the normal time for a tear smear on the eyeball to last is about 16 seconds and mine is only lasting half that. He's given me a letter to take to my gp to get eye gel for through the night and drops to use during the day. Coincidentally, I'm seeing my rheumatologist on 14th Jan so can talk to her about it. I would appreciate any info from anyone who has similar problems.I haven't been diagnosed with Sjogrens at this stage. Thank you xx
