Do you know any treatments for iritis?

Dr. Richard Bensinger answered

Specializes in Ophthalmology

Topical drops: Most iritis responds to topical anti-inflammatory drops with assistance from dilators which prevents internal adhesions which can be dangerous. Most respond to this although recurrence is possible. A few progress despite this and there are good systemic agents which can usually treat it. See an ophthalmologist for something this severe.
