Eye Inflammation and OLP.
I keep wondering if there is a connection between OLP and eye inflammation.
When my eyes get inflamed, my mouth sores get inflamed too. Why is that?
I was told I had a diagnosis of "dry eye" in my mid thirties. By mid-forties I was being treated for "episcleritis" with prednisone eye drops.
By my fifties I was told it was simply "dry eye" and I had a procedure where little plastic seeds were placed into my tear ducts. It was supposed to make my eyes produce tears. It sort of worked in the left eye, but not on the right. That's the one that always gets flared up the worse and then my mouth sores come back.
Now I am being told I might have something called Sjogren's. Not sure about that yet.
Maybe it is just a coincidence, but I often wonder if other people have eye irritations when their OLP flares up.
Always seek the advice and supervision of a qualified licensed medical professional!
