What are the ocular manifestations of Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Both episcleritis and scleritis can occur in less than 1% of RA patients. If scleral inflammation persists, scleral thinning and scleromalacia perforans can occur. Corneal melt is a rare but severe and blinding manifestation and typically requires very aggressive immunotherapy. Sicca symptoms of dry eyes frequently accompany coexistent SS.
