Yes, my eyesight has also worsened much more quickly, since I've had Scleroderma.
I also have Sjogrens,, so it can't help, either.
I have a cataract, which may/may not be effected, than if I didn't have Sjogrens...

Sorry you are having problems with your eyes. I believe scleroderma can affect your eyes. Mine are and yes the eyesight is bothered by some of the changes. There are times during the day my eyesight is so blurry I can't see. They are also affected by the dry heat. This year and last year especially the fall changing into winter weather I noticed alot of dryness after the heat went on. Have been using artificial tears frequently. I have water ports for water throughout my house that fit into the venting system in hopes to keep some moisture in the air. Next week will have plugs put into my eyes ducts to inhance tearing if my eyes have cleared up enough with drops. So far have only been told it is from scleroderma and maybe sjogrens. I also have had a dry mouth and nose this past year and the numoisten lozengers and nasal spray help somewhat.
With gentle thoughts.

I have really dry eyes and wonder if I need a humidifier. I have always been reluctant to get one because of the fear of creating more germs.
I live in a pretty humid area though....but the heat is on.
Sorry to hear you all have eye pain. I feel like a whimp.

I use a liquid that kills the germs in the humidifer. It takes a capful in a gallon of water.
