Eye exam

I've just come back from my annual eye test which I need to check that the hydroxychloroquine I take for my RA isn't building up in my eyes affecting my vision. Thankfully everything is fine, both with the drug and my general vision too. No glasses needed (surprising, considering how long I spend staring at computers)!

It's so great to know that I can continue on my meds and that there are no adverse effects from taking them. It's sometimes worrying to be on daily medication, especially so young, but good to know I'm being monitored closely.

Also, as always I feel grateful for the good care provided to me for free by the NHS. So lucky to have this service!

  5. It seems like you had a very good eye doctor, Squirrel! Lucky you! I think it is a must for people to have a qualified optometrist to check their eyes once in a while. A good optometrist will make sure that your vision is crystal clear. [Grant Weber]
