I've had flare-ups of uveitis
off and on for over 8 years. I've always been treated with pred forte drops and the inflammation goes away for a while but recurs within weeks or months.
This time, my flare-up includes what I can only describe as a large "sun spot" in my left eye. I saw the ophthalmologist
today, and he couldn't find anything to explain this large, gray blob in my vision. It's quite pronounced, especially when I'm looking at a computer screen, like right now. He did say that I had a lot of inflammation in my right eye, so he prescribed pref forte drops again for both eyes, just in case the sun spot in my left eye is a result of inflammation that he can't see. I'm on an HMO, and I've seen 4 different ophthalmologists over the last 3 years. Each one of them has said that they might refer me to a retina specialist, but they've all been reluctant to do so, and I've yet to be referred.
My other symptoms, which I have lived with for years now, is vision distortion in my left eye (straight lines appear wavy), blue lights streaming across my vision when I'm tired, and constant "strobe" lights (movement) in the corners of my vision. I don't notice the strobe lights or movement anymore, but it's always there.
This latest symptom is really annoying, and I'm just wondering what it could be. Thanks.
