More about my eyes

I have a diagnosis of "Iritis". Which basically means "eye inflamation". They don't have a definite cause for it, but it doesn't seem to be being triggered by a virus, or any other foreign stuff in my eye. So their best guess is an auto-immune thing of some kind, possibly triggered by stress.

So I have steroids for every hour (Maxidex), Cyclopentolate for twice a day (to keep the pupil open), and Betnesol to smear onto my eyeballs overnight.

It should get better over the next two weeks.

I'm fine to fly, thank goodness.

On the other hand, the reason I don't wear contacts is that the thought of touching my eyes makes me lock up solid. The eye exam was, thus, not a lot of fun. And putting drops in hourly has been an exercise in frustration. It's getting better slowly though.
