What leads to recurrence of iritis?

Q: I am a 22 years old male. Fifteen months back, I had iritis in my left eye. Eye drops and medicines treated it. Last year, I suffered from arthritis resulting in hip joint pain. Last month, iritis has recurred. What is the reason behind the recurrence of iritis? What would be the best treatment for it?

A:Iritis is an inflammation of the iris - one of the inner tissues of the eye. Causes are many but usually it is an immunological reaction especially when associated with arthritis. Recurrences are common but can be controlled in most cases with eye drops or oral medication as required. Consult an eye specialist who may recommend some specific tests to rule out other causes. Regular medication under the supervision of an expert ophthalmologist should help you to have a good recovery.
