I can synpathize with you. I have lived with this for 32 years and it does get better, but can surprise you at anytime.You wake up one morning and the light feels like an ice pick in your eye. You have to get to the eye doctor right away. Mine is associated with Ankylosing Spondylitis. But it can be assciated with other problems as well. By the way, removing the eye won't help. I have had it ping pong from the right eye, which I had the inflmation for years. Then it went over to the left eye. No rhyme nor reason. Take care and try not to get stressed, that just makes it worse.
