After a restless night of intense eye pain, (which thankfully abated later in the morning) I was able to get in to see my ophthalmologist at 2:00 today. As I suspected, it’s a flare up of Iritis, an inflammation of the Iris (which, thankfully, is not contagious). I’ve had this a few times before. My eye doc prescribed two eye drops, one of which I was able to get on my way home, the other of which will not be ready until tomorrow. I have to apply them several times a day for a couple of weeks, but I should start to notice improvement in a day or two.
I’m sore and exhausted, but relieved I finally have an official diagnosis and am treating with the proper meds.
