Hi all! How is everyone? I was recently diagnosed at the beginning of March. Was diagnosed through a blood test. I had suffered from the dry eyes for a while and it added up after being diagnosed. It was my optician that spotted something during a routine eye test two years ago. Was like a pin prick bleed in my eye so was referred to the eye hospital, the eye doctor sent away for the “out of the way blood tests” and waited a year for the Rheumy appointment and was told what was wrong.

Hi! Welcome to the site. My ophthalmologist was the one who caught mine too. That was years after a rheum told me that there was nothing wrong with me. Lovely, huh. It is almost a relief when you finally get a diagnosis.
