A woman comes in with a prescription for sulfasalazine tablets. She tells you that she is feeling much better because the medication is making a real difference to her recently-diagnosed Crohn’s disease.
In conversation, she mentions that needs to buy some eye drops or pay a visit to her optician as her eyes are playing up: she says that she has noticed her contact lenses seem dirty, and while she is being assiduous with cleaning, they still seem discoloured, and it is a bit of a relief at the beginning of the month when she starts with a new pair.
