I was warned that AS can affect the eyes. Does anyone have uveitis, or inflammation in the middle layer of the eye? Just curious how common it is and how you were diagnosed.
How are you doing today?
Thank you for getting this discussion started. I will tag a few members to see if they have experience with eye ailments.

Do you have any eye problems? Have these problems been linked to your AS? What has your doctor prescribed to help? How do you do to cope?

@LizziB I have had extreme changes in my eyes. I have gone to several eye doctors and they all say it is dry eyes. But I only have trouble at night. My eyes won't open because they stick together. I wash them out and it helps a little.Different eyedrops lasts about 5 minutes. Ididn't have this problem until my AS becomes more severe. It may have nothing to do with AS but I thought I would post this in case someone else had this problem.
