Thanks huckleberry and Clo!
The steroid drops still haven't fully knocked it on the head. Couldn't sleep last night and my right eye started feeling a bit weird again, so I looked in the mirror - sure enough, it was slightly red and the pupil was smaller than the left one.
It's ironic that you talk about
Remicade helping, Clo. Methotrexate and anti-TNFs are treatments for refractory uveitis. I suppose Entyvio wouldn't help because it's gut-specific. And indeed, when I was on Remicade, Humira, pred, and so on, I don't remember any issues with my eyes. I do remember in 2007, 2008, or thereabout
s having a right eye that was slightly dodgy however. In the corner there was a red bit and it often felt like there was something stuck there, like an eyelash or piece of grit. Not sure if that was uveitis or not, but, looking back, it seems possible. And then my Crohn's got worse and I started going on stuff like pred and Remicade, which probably cleared it up.
I wonder if Stelara would help? :-/
