My eyes are not being nice. I finally got my drool back and now my eyes are dry. They hurt and look like I have one heck of a hangover.

Dry eyes are one of the most common symptoms of Sjogren's syndrome. With this symptom, eyes may be red and burn and itch. I feel like I have sand in my eyes. Also, vision may be blurry and bright lights are bothersome.

The Sjogren's foundation has a good write up on dry eyes. Check it out. It is worth the read!
