About this event
The eyes aren’t often mentioned in discussions on lupus—but they are often affected by the disease. Maybe your eyes feel dry, or the muscles that control how you move your eyes don’t seem to work quite right. Eye doctors can see important changes in the blood vessels of the retina, along with other developments that aren’t visible to you.

What should you “look” for and how can you best protect your eyes and your vision? Dr. Meggan Mackay and Dr. Cono Grasso will have some answers for you.
