Feeling a bit tired and stressed (normal in the current climate!), I didn't think too much of my reddy-eye. I just thought it was lack of sleep or stress-related. Only when it didn't seem to get any better (the red-eye!) that is, and when the aching pain started did I decide to take some action!

It is more because I was due to fly back from Latvia to the UK and then off to Greece for my holiday did I really start to worry, as if I was not able to get back, my whole 'week-off' would never happen!

I saw a Latvian Eye Specialists (commonly known as Orthoptists). I went to ARS Clinic in central Riga, had to apply which costs me 22Lts. She had a look at the eye and responded with her findings. The key thing that was ruled out was an eye infection (bacterial) - which could have cause me to cancel my travel plans! Luckily this was one piece of good news - my holiday was still on. But what was causing the eye inflammation and what could I do to reduce it. There was no known cause of it, she mentioned it was Irisitis - which in basically saying it's an Iris Inflammation - but doesn't give much help on the cause...I was told lifestyle, stress, health etc etc - nothing that has caused a problem previously. Anyway she prescribed me two eye-drops, one Maxidex (steriods) which I had to take 6 times a day, and another (Mydriacyl) to take before I go to bed. Both set me back another 6.70Lts. But the key message was I could fly and continue on my way! Yah!

When I returned to the UK, I visited my GP to register the issue with them too. She didn't want to change my medication, but I was expecting to be referred to someone to get a more detailed examination. But nope - this didn't happen. At least I could fly, as she also gave me to the green-light to continue with my holiday.

I came back from Greece, and although I had been using the eye-drops for over a week now (about 9-10days), I noticed the redness had gone down tremendously, but the blurry vision remained. I knew it was 100% healed yet, so decided to visit the Eye Hospital A&E in the Sussex County Hospital in Brighton to see what could do.

I visited them on Friday, 26th September about 4.20pm, and after the looked at the eye, they noted that it was indeed Irisitis - they too couldn't confirm the cause, as there were too many factors, and sometimes "it just happens". They gave me another dose of eye-drops, and advised me to continue using for another month - slowly reducing from 6x a day, to 4x a day, to 3x a day, to twice a day, over a period of a month. More worryingly, they noticed the onset of Cataracts in my right-eye (the one causing the problem). So it looks like once I am off the medication, I would need to have my eyes tested, and possibly a change in my prescriptions. Grrrr - this means I will likely suffer this when I get older! Could have been worse, I guess!
