Iritis / Menstural Cycle

Post by Jason Lewis » Sun Jan 11, 2009 7:38 pm

My wife has been suffering from uveitis in both eyes for over 5 years. It initiaited while she was pregnant with our third child. Since then she has been on FML treating both eyes regularly and consistently. I have observed at day 25-26 of her cycle 8 months of each year that she experiences flare ups. It requires hourly application of the drops until it subsides and this can take 1-2 weeks to get under control. Recently she has experiened broken blood vessels in the right eye which is also the troublesome of the eyes. Her Ophthalmologist does not believe there is a connection, but I can not overlook the repeated (and somewhat predeictable) coincidence. Can anyone shed light on this potential link? Any other advice to help her?
