    I always get eye pain, it comes and goes, but I think it is from my sinuses being damaged. I am not much help. If your not in remission you can have eye pain. It is best to notifiy you doctor and get it checked out.

    Is your eye doc a specialist in autoimmune diseases? The WG specialist usually want you to see one if eye trouble is involved. Yes, I agree if you get a cold or sinus infection is affects the eye's.

    I get a feeling that my eyes are bulging when on higher doses of pred. It doesn't cause pain, though.

    If you have any distortion of your vision (eg, like a funhouse mirror) you need to call your doc asap. High dose pred causes blurry vision.

    tim not sure..but my rhuemy said that the docs im seeing are the best in the country..and they see all kinds of cases from lupus eye and RA eye..i have an appointment in 13 days with my optimoligist..lol they used me as a learning tool..cuz of my right eye..they even had this yearly seminar and they presented my case to about 50 doctors..and my rhuemy was there and some ENT's were there too...my case got alot of attention from alot of people..i would wish that kind of attention eather..cuz at that point they couldnt figure out what was going on in my eye..they didnt want to treat me for wegs yet if it was infection and they didnt want to lower the pred to far because they thought if it wasnt infection that WG would go out of control..that was when i was in the hospital a couple of weeks ago..now it seems to be getting better but i was scared for a sec cuz they never did truly find out the cause they just hit it with all the strong drugs..and hoped they got it right..even when the drugs were bottoming all my vitals..i was hating it then

    Vince,

    What meds are you on? I was experiencing that exact sensation when I was on CTX. I had a bunch of tests as my vision was messed up and I was seeing weird blobs in my vision. Long story short, they never found anything wrong and when I went from CTX to MTX it completely cleared up. Not sure what your situation is, but I believe my situation was caused by my meds.

    I don't get eye pain --it is more of a strain. I also have times, (like right now) where the entire white of my one eye turns red like a broken blood vessel. I don't know what that is all about. It can't be the prednisone as I have been off of it for some time now. Has anyone had that happen or is this related to Wegener's? I would appreciate anyone having any ideas on this.
