My husband has had a bad eye infection for the past couple days. I finally managed to get him in to see the doctor after he came home today from work in pain. The doctor said he has Uveitis and referred him out to an eye specialist. I take him tomorrow but in the meantime she prescribed him steroid/antibiotic eye drops.
So anyone who has had this, how long did it take for your eyes to stop hurting? How fast did the eye drops work? If you work, how long were you out of work? What did you do to help ease the pain until the drops started working?
We have no idea how he got this. Our doctor said that normally you see Uveitis in someone that has an underlying cause such as an IBD but my husband is healthy as a horse. So she thinks that it might be viral in nature though it is rare.
