Meticulous history taking, Anterior segment photography, FFA, serological examination, aid of a rheumatologist was taken. Following ophthalmic evaluation and extensive laboratory tests, patient was diagnosed as primary Sjogren’s. Close monitoring and combination immunosuppressives were relevant in the treatment process.
