Your symptoms are suggestive of an iritis (or inflammation inside your eyes). Many times, the the reason is unknown. If it is recurrent, then you doctor may order some blood test to check for a cause. Iritis can be easily missed by a regular doctor, but easily diagnosed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist. Inflammation in the eyes is treated with steroid eye drops.
