My Opthamologist prescribed me glasses
to wear full time to help me focus and for "prism" vision. My eyes especially my right one waters a lot, I have floaters, headaches, itchy eyes with a feeling of pressure on my eyes, especially the right one.
I've had a lot of back problems fusions at 7 levels, and I'm currently seeing a rhemotologist for possible ankylosing Spondylitis, or another form of arthritis or osteoporosis. I've also been diagnosed with scoliosis, I did not tell him about my eyes, do you think it would be helpful to tell him about my eye symptoms, and my Opthamologist about my possible AS diagnosis?
I don't think the glasses prescribed are helping, sometimes I feel as though wearing the glasses make my eyes water more, I have increased floaters and severe headaches. She put me on pataday drops for what she said was allergies of the eyes. When I put the drops in my eyes burn really bad, it goes away within 10-15 minutes but then my eyes stay red. My pupils are always dialated, I have crystal blue eyes so it's easy for my husband, mom etc to notice and ask why are your pupils dialated.
Do you think there is any correlation of the inflammation in my skeletal system, possible AS or another type of arthritis to cause any of the symptoms in my eyes?? Just scares me my grandma has had retinal detachment
twice and suffers from glaucoma
both happened and she was diagnosed with the glaucoma in her early 20's, she and my grandpa have also had cataract surgery. My grandma also gets injections in her eyes once a month, not sure what type of injections though.
I'm kinda scared she dialated my eyes checked my retina and eye pressure at my last appt and said they were normal.
I just wanted to know if you think any of my symptoms or problems have anything to do with the strong possibility of AS or anything else that I can do to make my eyes better? Or any idea of what is making my eyes deteriorate so quickly I get a yearly check up and every year my eyes are worse. Any suggestions or help would greatly be appreciated. I'm 32, a wife, a mom of one little girl right now and soon to be mom of 2 through a second adoption. So I really want to make sure I am doing everything possible to make my eyes better or stabilize them.thank you in advance for any help,
