Inflammation from Rheumatoid Arthritis can cause Scleritis which could cause your eyeball to split open. Glaucoma can also come as a result of arthritis medication. Inflammation may also result in Cataracts. All of these eye conditions are things you should discuss with your healthcare professional.
