I had severe iritis 4+ in my right eye about 2 years ago (had so much inflammation that my vision was a cloud of white) but after 3 months of ocular steroids my vision returned to normal. This year I have had episclerits in the right eye in January and episcleritis in the left eye in March. I have had numerous blood tests and xrays - all normal.
I was diagnosed with iritis in both eyes March 26. The inflammation is gone in the right eye. I still have 1+ iritis in my left eye nearly a month later. I am on OmniPred 4 times a day. The redness is gone now, but I still have a little sun sensitivity and floaters. I see about ten dots that are dark gray and about 20 more that are light gray. I never had floaters before this episode of iritis. I want to know will the floaters ever go away? Will the inflammation keep coming back?
