Rheumatoid arthritis: Can it affect the eyes?

What can rheumatoid-associated arthritis do to the eyes?

Rheumatoid is a chronic, inflammatory disease that affects the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis can also affect other parts of your body, including your eyes.

Dryness is the most common symptom of rheumatoid-associated eye disease. Dry eyes are more susceptible to infection. If left untreated, severe dryness can lead to damage to your cornea. This is the clear, dome-shaped, transparent surface of the eye that aids in focusing. Dry eyes may also be a sign of Sjogren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder often associated with rheumatoidarthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis can also cause inflammation of the white portion (sclera), which can lead to redness and pain.

Consult an ophthalmologist if you have rheumatoid and are experiencing eye pain, vision problems or any other symptoms. Vision-threatening complications can be prevented by early treatment.
