Iritis Math

Because I'm grumpy, and just out of curiosity...

Pred Forte
2 weeks at 1 drop/hour = 14 x 24 = 336
2 weeks at 1 drop/2 hours = 14 x 12 = 168
1.5 weeks at 1 drop/3 hours = 10 x 8 = 80
1 week at 1 drop/4 hours = 7 x 6 = 36
1 week at 1 drop/6 hours = 7 x 4 = 28
4 days at 1 drop/8 hours = 4 x 3 = 12
1 week at 1 drop/ 12 hours = 7 x 2 = 14
1 week at 1 drop/day = 7

Homatropine
plus 10 weeks of 3 drops/day = 70 x 3 = 210

Glaucoma Drops
plus 3 weeks of 3 drops/day = 21 x 3 = 63

Awesome. That means I probably only have to put in eye drops around 954 more times, and go to the eye doctor 20 or so times to fix this next iritis flare up. And here I thought it was a thousand and dozens.

(Actually, my right eye usually responds to the steroids much better than my left eye, so it shouldn't be as bad. I'm just really discouraged, and super annoyed, and have no room in my life for a positive outlook.)

  1. You'd think there would be a better way of treating this. This just seems like torture (I'm imagining terrorists in the middle east putting eye drops in prisoners EVERY HOUR). So sorry, Becky. :(
