Episcleritis            ep' ee skair EYE' tiss


Episcleritis is an acute onset of redness in one or both eyes. There may be a small white "spot" in the middle of the reddened area.

Who can get it?

Episcleritis is seen most commonly in young adults. Women appear to be affected slightly more often than men. In some cases it may be a result of some underlying systemic disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, inflammatory bowel disease, sarcoidosis, gout, herpes or syphillis.

How is it treated?

Most cases of episcleritis will run their course within two to three weeks without treatment. However, patients who are experiencing discomfort may benefit from a regimen of topical anti-inflammatory agents and lubricants.
