Crohn's related iritis

Post by CrohnsKiller » Wed Sep 19, 2018 9:03 am

I've had Crohn's for 9 years and in the past 3 years it started manifesting as iritis. I'm on Entyvio and Imuran which control the gut symptoms but I've been dealing with arthritis and iritis for the last 7 months. Originally I had thought I was getting pink eye which even an optometrist had diagnosed it as pink eye, but as I looked up more on Crohn's and wondered why everyone in my family was pink-eye free, I finally went to another optometrist who correctly diagnosed it. I worry about the long-term effects this will have on my vision if I keep having recurrent bouts of this.
