episcleritis

My recent visit to my specialist found that I have attacked by episcleritis and she recommended for Dexamithasone + Cloramphenicol combination or Fluorometholone + Tetrahydrozoline HCl combination. But I have early lental opacity (cataract). So, I am afraid of taking those combinations of steroid  that cataract may respond on those. Would you please suggest me the best treatment for it or Moxifloxacine gonna work with problem?

You need steroids for episcleritis.  Short term treatment will have minimal effect on cataract progression.

Dear Doctor
Started Florometholone + Tetrahydrozoline combination in 4 times daily. I think it is safe in cataract than Dexamithasone. It would be okay for 14days or will I stop it after curing? I have only one eye affected in episcleritis. So, using on that particular eye.

Another thing is, I am facing Acute allergy or episcleritis very frequently. How could I can get permanent relief from this issues?
