Get Eval.: The answer depends upon how long you have had it, how much vision disturbance you have, whether it is strictly one-sided, your age, other health, and other criteria.

See eye doctor: See an eye doctor to verify the diagnosis. It may just be running its natural course or you may be having a complication from the drops. If the antiinflammatory drop is a steroid it can help you considerably but requires close monitoring. ...Read more

Thyroid and eyes: If you had hyperthyroid graves disease, that could cause eye changes and GI problems. But you say your thyroid levels are, if anything, lowish, but actually normal. So your symptoms don't really fit with thyroid as an explanation. Talk to you doctor; maybe best to seek other causes. ...Read more

Your eye md can help make the correct diagnosis and offer the appropriate treatment. ...Read more

Recommend evaluation: I would recommend an evaluation by an optometrist (optician in UK i believe) or an ophthalmologist, as such symptoms could be as simple as a form of a headachr, but as serious as intermittent angle closure.
