Dec 22 2008 red eye and eye MD treated me for episclertis and scleritis.Predison pill and drops to reduce eye pressure.I went from 5 prednisone down to 1/2 a prednisone.
My eye was clear for 2 weeks and reinflamed on saturday now back to 4 predinison.The eye got sore after in a home with dogs for 3 days visiting family.Red eye showed up the next day after I got home
Is it normal for the scleritis to come back so soon?
Can alergy cause the Scleritis to come back.
How long can I take Prednisone I have been on it since January 2009.
My eyes are so sensitive.The right eye is fine because of the use of pill Prednisone.Today woke up with pink eye in the left eye.Eye surgeon saw me right away.Used the perscribed drops and the pink was gone instantly.Apo-Ofloxacin drops,Combigan drops and Maxidex drops which one cleared the eye instantly?Hope this was not pink eye.Does this sound like pink eye in the lefteye?
