I have been off and on prednisone for the past 5-6 months for Scleritis of the eye. My Internist, at the suggestion of my Opthalmologist, put me on Methotrexate, hoping that I can get away from the prednisone. I was starting to taper off the prednisone--down to 10 mg a day--but my eye is flaring right back up and fast! It is frustrating...I hate to increase the prednisone but I will most likely have to.
Anyhow, I see my eye doctor at least once a month. The way things are going, I will most likely be on prednisone for a long time. The good news is that my eye pressure is down--16 in each eye, so that is great! He hasn't seen any cataracts or anything, but I get nervous about that as well!
It would be a great idea to follow up with your eye doctor and have your eyes checked. I don't know when the cataracts start or anything like that, but I figure, better to get them checked anyways.
