can someone tell me if there is any connection between ulcerative colitis and high ocular pressure?

Possible: There is a relationship between ulcerative colitis and uveitis. This swelling within the iris could cause obstruction if severe enough. Have you had a good ocular exam.

Uveitis: The connection is that uveitis is seen with uc and crohn's. This is diagnosed by an ophalmologist and this doctor will need to do a slit lamp exam. Uveitis is a rare manifestation of uc and crohns though.
