What are symptoms and signs of iritis?

Iritis appears as a red, painful eye which may be accompanied by blurred vision and sensitivity to light. In addition, the pupil of the affected eye may be smaller than that of the healthy eye.

Comment from: Tezza, 65-74 Male (Patient) Published: January 14

I lost my sight in both eyes for three months with acute iritis when I was 17 years of age in 1962, the treatment for this condition appears to be the same today by using steroids and a substitute for atropine. I am now 69 years old, still driving and have an eye test twice a year. I just replaced my spectacles but still have my sight.

I am sensitive to light but it is a very different pain from my corneal ulcer. Iritis is more like stubbing pain, painful touching my eye ball, and looking toward some positions, red which looks like blood, in some spots. It is swollen mostly early morning and sharp pain like headache only above my right eye, which gets better after I put my eye drop which is neomycin, 4 times day for a week.
