I haven't been diagnosed with Sjogren's Syndrome, but my optician told me I have extremely dry eyes which are causing me a lot of problems. I use eye ointment at night and have tried three different eye drops, but still my eyes are sore and one eye, in particular, is quite inflamed.
I saw my GP - I also have Lichen Planus and Rosacea - and he has agreed to refer me to an ophthalmologist. However, apparently there is a new system whereby my GP's referral may be rejected by a triage panel and, if so, there is nothing he can do. I'm now worrying what to do if this referral is rejected. Has anyone else had a rejection regarding a hospital referral? If so, what did you do?
