Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) (CRPS) Board Index

I have CRPS, but I had eye problems beforehand. I went to a great opthamology practice, which did things like measure how much tear production my eyes were making and look at the eye surface under the upper lids. I did not have dry eyes, but I did have a condition called superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis. It can be caused by contact lenses or it can appear on its own. No contact lenses, here... It caused burning, itching, and blurry vision from goo on the eyelid surface.

I was using a medication for dry eyes, but the preservatives in that medication and the lubricating drops were causing a toxicity to build up in my eyes. I switched to preservative-free single use drops, my eyes improved somewhat, and my eye issues took a backseat to everything else. I would definitely recommend a opthamological workup and a thyroid test, as Graves disease can cause these symptoms. Any of these issues could be CRPS-related, or maybe not.

Be careful of excessive eyedrop use! If you are using them like I was: every hour or more, for many months, you might try switching to the single use drops to avoid the preservative toxicity.
