I've read several posts on this topic but nothing really recent. I've been dealing with a red/itchy/watery/sore eye for almost 3 months. I only have this problem in my left eye. At first doc visit, I was first diagnosed with pink eye, given 4 different drops, tried allergy meds, and a topical ointment. It seems to go into "remission" for a couple weeks at a time and then comes back. Most recently, it came back full force where the white of my eye was practically red, and when I woke up, it was crusted over. Went back to eye doc and he said it was an inflammation of the eye, aka Uveitis. Said it is auto-immune and asked if I had arthritis anywhere (I have it in one knee). From what I read, there is a connection. Was prescribed steriod eye drops, 4 x/day for a week, then 2x/day for another week. My questions are:
is this a lifelong problem? Will the steriod drops cure it? Is there any multi-vitamin or supplement I can take to help?
