i know UC can cause uveitis - inflammation of the eye, but is it possible that gradual loss of sight eg blurryness etc is just a down side of UC, rather than actually having uveitis?
I ask this because my eyesite has gradually been getting worse the past year...I have had 2 presciptions. I had my eyes tested 6 months ago and the nurse said to be aware of uveitis but not that I've got it. I dont particularly have painful eye unless I'm really tired, and I'm going for another eye test tomorrow as things like words on the TV are starting to get a bit blurry even with my glasses on.
