Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you for the question.
Yes, iritis can take longer to resolve depending on the severity of inflammation. Sometimes it even needs additional oral steroids. Nothing wrong about consulting a specialist as bilateral iritis needs to be evaluated for various systemic conditions also. However most acute non granulomatous type of iritis are idiopathic in nature that is they do not have a known cause. They respond well to topical steroids.
Sorry for the delay in replying back.
Durezol eye drops can be used every 2 hours and they do not carry the risk of increasing the IOP .
I hope your symptoms have reduced and your eye exam scheduled with an ophthalmologist/iritis specialist was helpful.
