Lupus and Your Eyes

The eyes aren’t often mentioned in discussions on lupus—but they are often affected by the disease. Maybe your eyes feel dry, or the muscles that control how you move your eyes don’t seem to work quite right. Eye doctors can see important changes in the blood vessels of the retina, along with other developments that aren’t visible to you.

Dr. Meggan Mackay and Dr. Cono Grasso had some answers for you.
