No cause, but a pattern is forming

Hi, I have had 2 major flare ups last year in the Left eye. A series of injections, steroid pills, and many drops (Myrdiacil, Phenyl, Atropine, Lotemax, Pred-Forte, Dexamethasone) has all helped control that eye. However, I still have a swollen under eye bag (after injections) and a 40% stuck pupil ...

Re: Iritis and now episcleritis

Well, had my third injection. My "flare" is minimal and I can see a lot better. My eye is white and barely any photophobia. I had some puffiness around my eye for about a day or two post-injection. I had my last injection on Friday (7 days ago), and the puffiness had subsided within 24 hours. I saw ...

Re: Iritis and now episcleritis

Had another injection (5 days after the initial injection)-this time it swelled alot. I can see a little bit better, but everything I see is yellow tinted and still blurry. But before the shot, I couldn't see very much at all (very washed out). Pupil is still stuck to the lens, we got it to dilate a...

Re: Iritis and now episcleritis

To answer your questions, Mike. No known cause of Iritis. The doc is gonna do a full investigation now. Already had the MRI months ago for brain-all normal. And I have posterior sychnaie (spelling?) and I had recieved the needle inside the eye. It was steroid injection. The pupil just plain would no...

Re: Iritis and now episcleritis

Well, its me again. And a week later, my doctor cannot get the pupil to dilate. We tried Atropine 1%, Mydriacyl 1%, and Phenylnephrine 10%. The doctor tried to put drops in every 3 minutes for 3 hours, and nothing. I got some major adhesion. He said I'm gonna get a needle in my eye tomorrow. Very sc...

Re: Iritis and now episcleritis

Hey, Mike. Everything got worse over the weekend. Sight went very blurry. I went back to the doctor. He prescribed taking the Lotemax every half hour and Atropine 4 times a day and to see him in the morning. But :oops: will see. I took the atropine and my pupil dilated peanut shaped, looked like two...

Re: Iritis and now episcleritis

Glad I came across this post. I was beginning to think I was abnormal...I had Iritis for 3 months. Was treated with Dexamethasone orally, and drops. And Atropine. Every time I would taper, it would rebound. Finally, we got it under control. Vision was restored. I returned to work. I work graveyard s...

Re: My story of iritis-2 weeks in

Hi, Mike. I went to my second opinion doctor and my iris was still distorted....it definetly was not round. It was shaped like a heart. The doctor did a full assessment and asked plenty of questions. Then he did an eye exam with round rings that looked like magnifying glass. He looked into my pupil ...

Re: My story of iritis-2 weeks in

Thanks Mike, you never cease to amaze me with your wide wray of knowledge. I am writing all this down to ask the dentist and opthmologist tomorrow. It seems like they both see so many other things that they have a hard time linking my symptoms to anything. Example: I tell my opthomologist that for t...

Re: My story of iritis-2 weeks in

Thanks, Mike. I told the doctor about the head pain, and I got the okay to still take Tylenol but the doctor gave me another prescription for Tecta 40mg, a pill to take daily to coat my stomache lining so that I do not get an ulcer. Since I will be doing a very slow taper, I will be on steroids for ...

Re: My story of iritis-2 weeks in

Hello, Mike. Thanks for your info. Now that you mention it: I'm not sure if its cold sores on the nose. I do suffer from mild acne on the chin and around the mouth, and more recently on my jaw line (which I cannot get rid of)....usually this happens before and during menstruation. So, for safety's s...

Re: My story of iritis-2 weeks in

Went to the doctor today with a flared up eye. Its red and ugly again. Its a bit sore and tender, but the severe pain hasn't emerged yet. I told the doctor about my pulsating eye and the way he explained it to me is that it is like when you cut your finger and it pulsates because all the blood is ru...
