Depends on cause: Go see an ophthalmologist. Eye irritation causes are myriad. You need an evaluation that can provide clues.

See a doctor: A lot depends on the type of inflammation and the type of medication your are using. Steroids can arrest inflammation but have their own set of problems some are vision threatening. You should see an ophthalmologist to be properly diagnosed and treated.
