SLK Problemx

My husband has been suffering from SLK for over a year.  A month ago he had the silver nitrate procedure done.  His eyes felt good for about 3 weeks and then just woke up one morning feeling terrible again.  Can you give me any suggestions on the next step that we should try to take?  He has been on steriods, tear plugs and antibiotics.  Any ideas are appreciated.

this is always so tough.  silver nitrate is usually what i suggest, but when it doesnt work there are limited options.

i usually put patients like these on longer term lower dose steroids like alrex. you could also try restasis, but you cant do both.  restasis is specifically contraindicated with concurrent steroid use.  you may have already tried restasis...that may be what you mean by 'antibiotics'...
