ok, it is strange that the pressure goes up so high with only a second bout of uveitis. often this is from a lot of synechiae, adhesion between the iris and the lens. you mention a blockage from kerratic precipitates of the trabecular meshwork which drains the eye. usually a blockage will occur at the 'angles'. I don't know of anyone in Minnesota I am sad to say. can you get to Chicago or to Michigan or to Kansas City?
DR Tuaber is in Kansas City, DR Ekong is in Ill. or Dr Tessler, Dr Janesecki is in Michigan (sp).

you can ask to add an NSAID such as Celebrex, Difusinal or Naprosyn at prescription strenght for the next few months to see if it will stop the recurrent cycle of the beast. steroids can add to the Glaucoma problem from blockage as they can also cause elevation in pressure.

I hope this helps,
