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

In brief: 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.

In brief: 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.
