Three weeks ago I was diagnosed with acute uveitis. I have never had anything wrong with my eye sight before. Within three days I went from seeing perfect to total blindness in my right eye. My first visit to the doctor I was given liquid steroids to put in my eye. My second and third visits required a total of three shots of cortisone into the infected eye. Nine vials of blood was taken and all test came back negative. As of now I 'am still taking the liquid cortisone and have had x-rays taken of my hips. My x-rays have yet to be read. My next appointment is tomorrow the 29th of August. Will I ever get my sight back again? If so for how long? I'am 54 years old,male and very active until this hit me. Now I can't get out of the house because of the tremendous amount of pain from light. How does one live with this for 35 years as you have done? What is the longest you have went free from this most disabling disease? I think I would rather have my eye removed than to put up with this the rest of my life. Any suggestions will be appreciated greatly. Thank You.
