Dry eye and arthritis - LANSIER

Dry eye and arthritis

Many people with arthritis also suffer from dry eye. Dry eye may be related to Sjogren's syndrome, an immune system disorder often associated with RA. Women are more prone than men to dry eye with arthritis.

If left untreated, dry eye is not only uncomfortable but can cause corneal infection and scarring. Those with dry eye and arthritis may need to use an ointment, artificial tears or medicated eye drops to keep their eyes moist. You may also need to use small plugs (known as punctal plugs) inserted into your tear ducts to keep tears on the surface of the eye.
