Why People with Rheumatoid Arthritis May Experience Eye Problems

If you have RA, see an ophthalmologist once per year

In the end, whether you have rheumatoid arthritis or not (but, especially when you have rheumatoid arthritis) you should be seeing your eye doctor at least once a year. Orbai explains the importance: "Only an ophthalmologist can diagnose and rule out possible eye problems in people with RA." This is especially important if you have been experiencing any symptoms such as itching, floaters, redness, vision loss, or pain.
