: I need to ask a question about arthritis and it's
: effects on eyes. My son has psoriatic arthritis. He
: is away at school and called me today because he is having trouble focasing, blurred vision and spots.
: When he was first diagnosed at the age of 16, I was told that arthritis could effect any body organs and
: your eyes. Has anyone every had an experience similar
: or like this? Please advise.
Any of the arthritis meds can lead to dryer eyes. If he experiences dry eyes, dry mouth and/or swollen glands he might want to get checked for Sjogren's Syndrome.
