Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you today.
What is your doctor prescribing the steroids for? Why do you have to come off of them?
My Dr prescribe prednisolone because My rright
My Dr prescribed Prednisolone because I could not see properly with my right eye, He diagnosed arterial thrombosis My Dr said that I would have to come of Because of the side effects of long term use
So. let me understand this correctly. Your ophthalmologist put you on steroids for arterial thrombosis and now your primary care doctor wants to take you off of them? Is this correct? Also do you remember your condition being called giant cell arteritis? Did you have a biopsy done of the artery on the side of your head?
