Iritis (cont.)

Self-Care at Home

Mild analgesics may help temporarily until you can see the ophthalmologist.

Iritis requires prescription medications (drops, pills, or a combination) and follow-up visits with an ophthalmologist, so seeking medical care is essential.

  • Use prescription medications exactly as prescribed.
  • Wear dark glasses if exposure to light is uncomfortable.
  • Take mild analgesics, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil), to help control some of the discomfort.
