This is my first time battling with anterior uveitis; it is in my left eye only. I was diagnosed 2 weeks ago and have been on a strict regimen of drops and oral steroids. On my last trip to the Opthalmologist, he told me that I was progressing very well, and things are definitely moving in the right direction. However, I have had a pretty drastic increase in my vision prescription (almost 3 degrees) over the past 2 weeks. The MD ran several tests, and said that other than a small amount of inflammation, my eye looked healthy. Eye pressure has remained at 12 for the past week. He really had no explanation for the change in vision. Anyone have an answer? Is this normal?
Medications taken are as follow:
PredForte, one drop each hour, first two days;
Homatropine, one drop twice daily, days 1-7;
Durazol, one drop each hour (days 3 and 4), one drop every 2 hours (days 5-7), 4 drops per day (days 8-14), now on a step down each week;
Oral steroid pack, days 2-7;
Kennelog (sp?) steroid shot on day 3.
I am now on day 16.
