My eyes burn, and my vision is terrible. I use artificial tears, but sometimes they don't help and I have to close my eyes and have a nap for a short while. I have to wear dark glasses when outside, whatever the weather as the wind blowing into my eyes, or the sun shining, really stings them.9/25/2015 at 05:29 PM

It come and goes. At night tears flow out of eyes (have had cataract surgery.) This cataract diagnosed a year after RA (resulted from a deer tick bite that was not treated with antibiotics until 6 mo. afterwards) Sometimes feels like grain of sand in there. I use over the counter eye lubricating drops to help dryness. Never had dryness before using meds-hydrochlorquine 200mg x2 daily with prednisone 7.5 mg x1 daily. Have read cataract can be a side effect. Now having issues with second eye waiting to have cataract surgery in the near future. I am 73 years old, and have been healthy in all ways up til this lyme diease caused RA. 6/14/2015 at 01:39 PM
