Eyelid Surgery for Someone with Sjogren's Disease?
I have rheumatoid arthritis and Sjogren's disease resulting in very dry eyes. I use restasis drops twice a day as well as plaquenil. If I don't use restasis, my eyes are actually difficult to open in the morning, burn during the day and I get bumps under the lids. I would love to have eyelid surgery because I want to look younger but is that wise? What is the risk? Would I be able to continue with restasis immediately after surgery? Does anyone know a doctor who specializes in eyelid surgery for people with my complications?
