Recently I got Iritis (right eye). I was given eye drops , every 2 hrs for 4 days, 4 times a day for 4 days, 3 times, two times and then once a day. As soon as I finished it flared up again. My doctor said it could be caused by a virus, but did not do a blood check, it has now flared up again. I have started to get really depressed. How can I make it go away? Answered by Kesha Neller 4 months ago.

Is the iritis only in the one eye? Does it take turns between the eyes? is this the first time you have had iritis? There are many causes of iritis and some causes are never known. Depending on where about in the eye iritis is, and what country you are in, can affect the treatment you recieve. I'm in england and have had iritis on and off now for about 3 years. The drop schedule you describe seems very short to me. When I have iritis my doc has a treatment that last 6 weeks. Steroid drops are put in every hour for the first 2 days, then every 2 hours for 5 days, then every 3 hours for 7 days, every 4 hours for 7 days and every 6 hours for 7 days, then every 8 hours for 7 days, then every 12 hours for 7 days and then 1 drop a day for a week. If the drops are stopped too quickly, then the iritis can return, and it seems that this may have happened with you. Every time I go to the hospital with this disease, a different eye doc, gices me a different schedule. Mostly I ignore them and do the schedule I know works for me. I even ask for the drops I want, i.e I prefer pred forte over the maxidex etc. Another point, when you put the drop in your eye, you may need to put your finger over the courner part of your eye to block the tear duct and to keep the steroid drop on the surface of the eye for it to be totally absorbed. (This also helps reduce that nasty bitter taste when the drop finds it way down the throat...yuk!) As for blood work ups.....well it depends on where you are. I believe America does this as standard. I'm in the UK and only recently have they taken the Xrays and the blood tests. Getting depressed is a known side effect of iritis, it can really mess with your life. But you learn, if the iritis ever comes back, how to get it treated early on and so reduce its effects. i.e a slight aversion to light or loss of colour clarity are signs to watch for. Another is the slightly smaller pupil of the affected eye. If you see these signs, then get the drops asap. Nowadays, I can tell the flare up before it takes hold and this reduces the pain, and the time when vision is reduced.
