Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
I'm sorry to hear about your difficulty battling iritis (uveitis). This is a condition that can, at times, be difficult to completely resolve. The reason is that it can be linked to autoimmune systemic conditions such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis among others.
If you find that the condition is not clearing, I would recommend that you discuss with your eye doctor the possibility of being sent for an evaluation by a rheumatologist. These doctors are specialist in autoimmune conditions that can cause iritis. Blood work will be performed along with a complete work-up. If a systemic condition is found then treating it should improve your symptoms.
Frankly, there are many cases (about 60% of the time) in which a systemic condition cannot be found. Still, even when a cause cannot be determined uveitis can be treated to complete resolution, This does require agressive treatment with close follow up.
If you feel that a second opinion is indicated, I would encourage you to find an ophthalmologist that specializes in uveitis and anterior segment. With proper treatment, you should be able to regain the vision you had before.
I hope this helps and that you feel better soon...
I appreciate your insight and candor, the opthamologist I have been to suggested the same so you are in fact my second opinion! However... I am slightly afraid to find out there's something really wrong with me ect... but I plan to go to the doctor none the less.
My vision had been the favorite of my senses!
Many thanks again,
