Just for the record - Iritis flared up again this week. Back on the Predeferin Forte eye drops causing annoying short sightedness for awhile. I've got the font size etc cranked right up to ExtraLarge and still find I'm dragging the monitors forward on the desk. Drops usually clean it up pretty quick smart though.

The eye actually started aching a bit last weekend, but I lived in hope it would just go away...it didn't.

It's a almost as painful as the Iritis, trying to organise a reference from my GP, so that I can see the eye specialist, so that he can prescribe exactly what I know I need. That's part of the medical ripoff here though isn't - a few people are making pretty good money for doing very little. Not the eye specialist though - he is amazingly thorough, dedicated and caring. He always goes out of his way to make sure I get in to see him the day I call, and always follows up very diligently.

The middlemen though, are making their money pretty easy.

Anyway, thought I ought to start noting the flare-ups and look for a pattern. It was far worse at night when I was tired. I've been doing quite a bit of "in the zone" development hours (at the computer lately too), and plenty of reading! It's got to be related - tired eyes and so on...
