iritis (anterior uveitis), the most common cause of preventable blindness, doesn't affect visual acuity. But the pain is miserable — much like a toothache of the eyeball!
A small stye, which developed just prior to the irits and may well have triggered the iritis, adds more misery.
Prednisolone eye drops every two hours, Tobramycin drops every five hours, frequent hot compresses, and ibuprofen every four hours bring some relief. I've had worse bouts of iritis and know from experience that the best medicine is plenty of rest.
Although I will make limited blog rounds, I will not be posting again until Monday.
Have a good weekend.
