Both iritis and glaucoma are associated with rheumatoid arthritis. Iritis needs to be treated with steroids and glaucoma needs pressure lowering drugs. Besides this I also believe that you would be having dryness in your eyes both because of rheumatoid arthritis and anti-glaucoma drugs causing redness in eyes. For this you need to use lubricating eye drops. You need treatment not only treatment for eye problems but also the rheumatoid activity is to be kept under control which will benefit your eyes as well. For this you need to consult your physician again. Take care.
