I had it in the right eye and we used eye drops for a month and we were able to get rid of it. Now I have it in the left eye and this is my third month without any success. The steroid drops manage it but doesn't take it away. I am going to the eye doctor today for a recheck and to find out what are the next steps.

I am HLA-B27 positive, and also diagnosed with Fuchs' dystrophy. The cataract surgery did not yield positive results due to the Fuchs'. The DSEK failed due to the HLA-B27. The full cornea transplant was thought to have failed, but yesterday (1-21-15) the cornea specialist said the cornea was clear. The uveitis has generated a mesh of tissue internal to the eye due to inflammation, resulting in zero vision. Ultrasound will be done as soon as possible to verify that the internal mesh has not gone to the retina. Corrective action has not yet been determined.
