my partner has had a very painful inflamed eye, he has had it for about 8 days now, it also feels like there is something in the eye, he went to the hospital, and they have said there are some ulsars on the eye. Thy prescribed drops. Gradually the eye has got worse, it now won't open and he has lost his vision. He has a throbbing pain all around his eye socket, top of his jaw and nose. He has been going back to the hospital every day, and they don't know whats wrong. He's got 4 different drops to put in and a cream. But nothings touched it. He says the pain is so bad that he can't walk, from the thud of the pavement. Please help, it's ruined our Xmas!!!!

optic neuritis
I too had a mini stoke in my right eye in 2010.The docs treated with steroids but I still have partial vision loss. In Nov of 2011, I had a problem with my left eye. I was once again treated with steroids. Both incidents have been considered optic neuritis but it is still unresolved. I am partially blind in my left eye. Anyone else had this reoccurance?

I feel for you with knowing what my partner is going through! He is now on steroids 6x a day, and is back to the hospital on Thursday. He still can't see out of it. The pain has subsided a lot but is still there. I think the hospital has given up!x
