So today I had to go to Urgent Care in Group Health for my eye. Yesterday I woke up with serious pain (8/10) in my eye which only got worse when I looked at any light (photophobia). Throughout the day yesterday, I pretty much slept or tried to sleep, and kept my eyes closed. I figured I’d sleep on this until this morning and see how it goes.
Well, this morning it was no better. Tylenol helped but very little. After seeing the doctor, he determined it was Iritis. Basically, in my case, it looks like my pupil is locked in one position, and it’s just wide open. Hence the reason I can’t stand bright lights and have blurry vision in my right eye. He also mentioned my right eye is slightly swollen, and that’s what seems to be causing the pain. It’s like having a migraine in your eye.
So now I’ve got steroid drops for my swelling and some other drops to keep my pupils dilated all the time. So I’ve gotta wear the dark sunglasses so it’s not so bad, an icepack handy to keep on the eye. It never ends.
