    Iritis and Blurred Vision?

    My eye doctor prescribed me eye drops for Iritis and an infection in my right eye. Now that it has all cleared up my vision is still slightly blurred.

    Any reason this may be happening?
    Any info would be greatly appericated,
    Thanks so much
    Sabrina

    Sabrina :

    It is important not to stop these eye drops suddenly without "tapering off" of the medication. A sudden stoppage of the medication when there is still low-grade (but asymptomatic) iritis can result in a severe flare up of the disease.

    Iritis is usually mild. Pain caused by spasm of the pupil constriction muscle is relieved by drops to dilate the pupil.

    It is the dilation of the pupil that may be the cause of your blurred vision.

    Another contributing factor could be the debris that iritis creates in the eye, floating around. These floaters should be absorbed, or fade, with time.

    Hi Eyes,
    Thanks for your reply,
    My doctor never said anything about tapering off the medication, tho I have read this online about tapering but only with the Steriod medication if used longer then 10 days.

    Hi LeelaC,
    I never thought about the debris caused from Iritis. I'm sure with time it will fade.

    Thanks for your reply
