The cause is unknown.  No know way to prevent.  Treat symptomatically.

Thank you .That is the answer all Doctors have told me.Eye health is important and everyone wants to see.At this point my eye sight is fine.Please get back to me if anyone else has a remedy to help get rid of episcleritis and get rid of the eye pain.

Dealing with the same condition..I have been told by my ophtalmologist to take vitamins for eye dryness and clean the eye lids on the surface twice daily.  Maybe this would help.  The condition is tricky, and many doctors are too fast to give steroid drops.  While they help, my doctor advised application of hot compress on the affected eye as well..
