    Eye trouble - goes away and then returns

    Hello, this past May, I was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer. I was treated with an antibiotic drop and steroid drop. Went back for an exam and all we good. A month later, my eyelid became inflamed and my eye red so I went back and was prescribed a steroid. It helped and all was well until about 3 months later- same symptoms. Prescribed steroid drops again. All was ok after that.

    Then 2-3 months later, same situation. It gets better for a while and then comes back. Starts with very sore upper eyelid and then eye gets very irritated.

    I saw a retinal specialist and he didn’t see anything they concerned him from the vision plane test or from the exam when dilated.

    My eye doctor has recommended that I get a set of blood tests to look for autoimmune issues. So I will do that tomorrrow.

    Any thoughts on this? Has anyone had this issue?
