So my eye Dr said that I have degenerative charges to my vision my vision is blurry and a symptom that I've also experienced is double vision and they are super sensitive to light at night and I get sleepers in them all day long and sensitive to the touch could it be uvitis

  1. I began having eye problems years ago. Because I also have MS, they assumed it was MS related. I have eye problems like floaters all the time, blurry and double vision, etc. But since eye problems can be part of AS (I do have the gene) I signed up with BARD (Blind and Reading Disabled) through the Library of Congress so I could switch to listening rather than reading. Reading always triggers blurry and double vision. I use very large monitors, the zoom feature on my computer or phone, and about half the time, the dark background during the day. And always at night. Many sites also allow colorblind alterations to their site that can be soothing to the eyes. I keep a magnifying lens in my phone. I have made it my mission to protect what I can of my eyesight because it might never come back! Good luck with your eyesight! LisaWY

    1. I wanted to make sure you saw this message! -Jessica, Team Member

  4. - First I want to say that I am sorry you are dealing with vision difficulties and eye issues possibly related to spondyloarthritis. Secondly - I want to comment quickly that we are not physicians and cannot offer advice, diagnosis, or treatment in this community. As people vary in symptoms, treatment regimen, and disease status, it is difficult to say if you are dealing with uveitis or some other symptom/disease. Have you been to a rheumy to help sort things out? If indeed it is uveitis, there are a variety of therapies that can be recommended by your physician. I did want to drop a link here regarding uveitis that you can review and possibly discuss with your treating physician. I hope it helps. Thoughtfully, Rebecca (community moderator)
