Cloudy Vision after bending over/looking down
An_251462 posted:
I have iritis in my left eye. This is my fourth episode in 12 calendar months. That aside, I have been finding that after I bend over or look down for an extended time, when I look up I have extremely cloudy vision in my left (infected) eye. I've tried searching for possible reasons, but have come up empty. Has anyone experienced this?
Alan M Kozarsky, MD responded:
Can I assume that the iritis (inflammation, NOT usually infection, internally in the front of the eye) affects only one eye? If yes, has your doctor considered the repeated iritis as being part of an arthritis type problem - eg. HLA-B27 associated iritis?

Is it possible that the iritis has caused inflammation debris to accumulate in the back compartment of the eye (vitreous) which is stirred up like a snow globe during the eye movements which you mentioned? This is just a guess.......episodic cloudy vision is not a common issue for those with iritis.
