I have been diagnosed with scleritis of my left eye since may 2006. I have RA and am on Methotrexate and anti tnf. For my eye I am taking prednisilone eye drops 1% but the eye is still the same and gets worse when I am tired, if there is bright sunlight. I found the statement that 50% of people with RA and scleritis will die of an mi in 10 years a little startling without giving any reasons why!

      I've recently been diagnosed with scleritis and was put on drops for 2 1/2 weeks however it came back a week after discontinuing the drops. I am now on a combination of eye drops and oral steroids. Just wondering if you ever found a treatment that worked for you?

      Did you ever figure out the right treatment to keep the scleritis at bay?
