How to manage recurrent iritis in the eyes?

Q: I have been suffering from iritis in my left eye. During the course of such disorder the visibility of my eye reduces significantly. I had also undergone a retinal detachment surgery in the same eye. The doctor opines that the visibility is poor due to pigmentation on the lens and also due to a mild cataract due to the use of steroids. Is it possible for me to restore the vision by replacing the lens by IOL?

A:Long term use of topical corticosteroids can cause some cataract and glaucoma to develop in the eye. Diminished vision can be explained by the cataract as well as by pigment deposits on the natural lens due to recurrent iritis. Cataract surgery with IOL implantation should recover as much vision as was present after the detachment surgery in this eye.
