Uveitis in Left Eye
I was tested positive for HLA-B27 3 years ago when I consulted a rheumatologist with lower back pain. I have been having anterior uveitis (iridocyclitis) in the left eye for about 3 weeks now. At the start of the 3rd week, I was asked to start using Homide (2 times a day) and Pred Forte which finally seemed to do the trick of bringing the pain down. Now the pain in the eye is nonexistent. However, my vision is still blurry in the left eye (it has been a week now since the pred forte medication started). When I met my doctor for a follow up, he said it was because of the Homide eyedrops which dilated the pupil. How long will it take before I eye functions normally as it used to before the uveitis? Is there any side effect from prolonged use of Pred Forte? I must also mention that my rheumatologist said (after looking at my MRIs) that my arthritis wasn't so bad as to cause an episode of Uveitis.
