How to clear out the retina-pigmentation from the left eye? The iritis i have from logn ago and it comes perodically... once in 2 years.. but now due to neglegence there is pigmentation on retina... so the left eye vision is blurred?
The prognosis is generally good for those who receive prompt diagnosis and treatment, but serious complication (including cataracts, glaucoma, band keratopathy, retinal edema and permanent vision loss) may result if left untreated. The type of uveitis, as well as its severity, duration, and responsiveness to treatment or any associated illnesses, all factor in to the outlook.
Uveitis is typically treated with glucocorticoid steroids(are a class of steroid hormones that bind to the glucocorticoid receptor (GR), which is present in almost every vertebrate animal cell), either as topical eye drops (prednisolone acetate) or oral therapy with corticosteroids. But before giving corticosteroids, rule out corneal ulcers by Florescence Dye test. In addition to corticosteroids, topical cycloplegics, such as atropine or homatropine, may be used. In some cases an injection of PSTTA (posterior subtenon triamcinolone/synthetic corticosteroid given orally, by injection, inhalation, or as a topical ointment or cream acetate) can also be given to reduce the swelling of the eye.
Antimetabolite medications, such as methotrexate are often used for recalcitrant or more aggressive cases of uveitis. Experimental treatment with Infliximab or other anti-TNFs' infusions may prove helpful.
I truly hope have been of help... take care and get this treated asap.-
