I have been seeing by an ophthalmologist for nearly 8 years now. I have iritis (my doctor also refers to it as "uveitis), and I have continually been taking multiple types of eye drops every single day since it started. The main one is Pred Forte. Because of being on so many kinds of eyedrops and having an eye surgery a few years back, my left upper eyelid is very swollen. I can no longer take a decent picture. People have told me I look like I have a lazy eye, or they ask "what's wrong with your eye?" and I look like I have had a stroke in pictures because one eye is clearly smaller looking than the other. I hate it and I want it fixed. My doctor doesn't think it's a priority as there are other issues to deal with (which is understandable).
Does anyone know of any remedies that will work for reducing swelling in an upper eyelid? I tried pressing a cold compress on and it didn't work. I am so tired of my eye continually looking terrible and the flare-ups continue to happen about twice a year. Right now I cannot see anything out of my left eye. If anyone has had a similar experience, please feel free to give me some advice.
