Hi scherpie... I certainly can't explain why your eyes might be changing color, but I can at least tell you that I have had eye issues since beginning treatment too. I get my imterferon shot on Fridays, and about three hours after the shot, my eyes are super light sensitive and I have a difficult time seeing. I usually go to bed on friday afternoon in a darkened room.....and sleep through until the next day. As the weekend wears on, my eyes seem to adjust back to being able to see better. I say better, because my vision is not quite what the same as when i began treatment....I have difficulty focusing for up close work.
As for itchy and dry.....oh my gosh. Especially at the beginning of treatment, I thought I would rub my eyes out of my head! It was so difficult not to rub and scratch them! I used copious amounts of artificial tears ( wetting drops), allergy drops, etc. They were so bad at times that they looked like little round red orbs in my face! I did learn that the more water I drank and the more hydrated I became, the less this issue would bother me as well.
Now that i am off the Incivek and my interferon has been reduced, my eyes are better. They still itch and they are still red.....just not as bad. I think it is part of the overall allergic reaction that we have to the drugs....
I would also use a cold compress (like a wet washcloth that you have put in the freezer) across my eyes when they would feel so bad. That, and the artificial tears, seem to help the most.
I hope you feel better.
Hmmm, I am only on week 12,but my eyes are itchy and dry, and I cant see the letters, close up.
The thing about this kind of tough chemical treatment is: it does age you. I noticed that my grandma had hazel eyes, but my mom told me thatthey used to be brown. My eyes are between brown and hazel, so I can see the thin blue ring, around my eyes as well.
They say hazel eyes are the most light sensitive. They come from having the brown/blue eye color gene, it goes by all four of your grandparents colors, I believe.
My youngest son had these olive green eyes, until he was one years old, and then they turned dark brown. You may have been the same, as a baby.
We are in the great cycle of life, it's a big circle. I am turning 50 yrs old this summer, and I can really feel the difference, with this aging!
